Beets and Peas Tapa-style

Last Friday, Divya from Flavour Fiesta invited me over for another cooking date – so fun! We threw around some ideas for new ‘Beauty Eats’ posts and then Divya made a light, yet still wonderfully filling lunch filled with vibrant colours.

First week of September – yikes! For me, this means back to school to complete my last year (hooray!) and reorganizing my closet to reacquaint myself with my fall wardrobe. I must admit, fall is not my favourite season. But you know what does cheer me up? Something sweet… and preferably something healthy so I […]

Arugula and Grapefruit Salad

I discovered my affinity for arugula during my time in New York, when I had the opportunity to sample many gorgeously crafted arugula salads in various eateries. Lucky for me, this is one of those vegetables that I adore, making it a wonderful addition to my selection of vegetables that I consume for skin health. […]

Complexion-enhancing Blueberry Rooibos Tea

Okay, okay – you know I love tea, but how can I actually enjoy a hot cup of tea when it’s blazing hot outside? Why, make it iced of course! Last week when I, ahem, invited myself to Divya’s place (from Flavour Fiesta), I brought over some of my Prickly Pear Rooibos tea that I […]

Salmon dressed in a tangy red pepper sauce {omega 3s for skin plumpness}

I spent a lovely afternoon with Divya from Flavour Fiesta yesterday and I got a glimpse of how the magic happens in her kitchen. I’m telling you, she’s truly a creative genius!

Summer appies with skin-loving ingredients

Ahhh…summer. It is finally patio weather and I could not be more thrilled. Unfortunately patios are typically synonymous with high fat foods, negating any bikini-body workouts you may have put in. But here’s an idea: host your own little get together on your own patio, and make healthier, yet just as delicious versions of what […]
