Happy Halloween

Berries experiment Main dish

Happy Halloween

Trick or treat time! Well, mainly treat! Since I am not really into sweets or dessert, I opt for something hearty! And nothing can be more hearty than a winter pie! This is my new experiment for Halloween and technically I just put together whatever veggies I found in my fridge and food cabinet, got a pumpkin from the store and bake away! I am surprised that it worked so well!  The quinoa and beans are good source of protein while the pumpkin and carrots are good source of vitamin A! For those who haven't heard of Sea Buckthorn, it...

A great party with great initiatives from Treehouse

We went to Treehouse grand opening last Saturday and really impressed with its dedication to the environment. There was no entrance fee although guests were welcome to make donations. All the donations would be used for planting more trees and Treehouse matched every penny of the donations too! We loved the food and everything was so yummy! And good news? They are all plant-based. In the future however, we would love to see more GF options on the menu. When that happened, it will definitely be one of my go-tos! #environment #restaurant #oneplanet #plantbased

歐洲藍莓 Bilberry = 藍莓 Blueberry?

歐洲藍莓 Bilberry = 藍莓 Blueberry?

大家想起芬蘭,會想起什麼?北極光?聖誕老人?好像都是冬天的活動。 夏天的芬蘭卻另有一番境象。我第一次去芬蘭便是夏天。夏天的芬蘭很美, 很美。除了日不落之太陽之外,還有壯闊的森林,翠綠的草坡及滿山的野花。在森林裏的草地上長滿一粒一粒藍色的野生的藍莓(bilberry) 及紅色的野生草莓。 從香港來的我見到山上野莓當然不敢採,同行的當地人告訴我, 這全都是可以吃的而且營養成分還非常之高。 她還說雖然中文都是譯作藍莓,但bilberry 又稱山桑子或歐洲藍莓跟藍莓(blueberry)是不同的。 Bilberry 是藍莓跟cranberry 酸紅莓的近親。山桑子(Bilberry) 源自北歐,屬於矮腳品種,是最優質的品種。歐洲人以前是用來治肚瀉的。Blueberry 多產於美元,大多人工種植,屬於高腳品種。有研究指出山桑子(bilberry) 的抗氧化花青素是藍莓(blueberry )的十倍!聽了後我急不及待摘來品嚐 😋。跟平時的藍莓味道有點不一樣,而且非常好食,食後指頭還留著有少許的藍色,是平時一般藍莓沒有的! 果然零舍不同! 至於花青素的好處,有待下回分解。今次先看照片,看看芬蘭美麗的夏天及看看大家可發現Bilberry 跟平時一般blueberry 的不同。 #bilberry #blueberry #berries #花青素 #抗氧化 #芬蘭 #藍莓 #山桑子 #Finland #wildberries

Homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Sourdough Pizza

Homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Sourdough Pizza

Hubbie has been very supportive recently and I thought that I will thank him by making a nice meal. Isn’t there a saying that “the way to a man’s heart is his stomach” ? Well, my hubbie is obsessed with my homemade pizza.  I have been making homemade #sourdough bread and pizza for a long time before I found out that I am super intolerant to gluten. I think many of you would agree with me that saying goodbye to a chewy pizza crust is one of the most painful things to do when you are on a GF diet. ...
