It wouldn’t be fair of me not to share my new favorite coffee address: Le café Alain Ducasse. Alain Ducasse surpasses himself again and has recently opened his coffee shop in Paris and London. Such as he has established for Le Chocolat Alain Ducasse, this time focusing on roasting exceptional coffee crus.
For true coffee lovers, those who enjoy just a cup of coffee with nothing added – this is the place to go. His boutique at rue du Cherche-midi is a small shop with a coffee bar and stools to sit and have a coffee on your way to work or to a meeting. Drink and go, nothing more. Maybe you’ll catch up on the news by grabbing a newspaper or just to sit and have a chat with the cafelier.
With this Avocado & beet hummus toast, I’m going to focus my article on cycle-syncing according to the flo-living method from the book Woman code by Alisa Vitti.
I’ve been struggling with my hormones since I decided to stop taking birth control. I’m part of that generation of women who were told to get on the pill as soon as I hit puberty, that it was better & safer for me. Turns out that wasn’t what my body needed on the long term. But I won’t be getting into that topic today.
I started really understanding my hormones and body at age 28 when I went back to having natural cycles. Better late than never right ?
It had been so many years that I’d forgotten what PMS was. But 70% of women…
Today I’d like to share a sort of revisited Mexican recipe of mine : fish tacos Spring roll style with these Fresh Salmon and veggie Spring Rolls.
Who says you can’t make just about anything into spring rolls ? This recipe literally calls for the same ingredients I put in my Fish tacosrecipe but I replaced the flour tortillas for a lighter and gluten free option – rice wrappers.
The only tricky part is to fold the rice wrappers right, after having soaked them in warm water for a few seconds until they get soft. Here is a small drawing of the rolling technique:
Add the filling at the bottom edge of the rice paper, not filling it too much.…
I’m totally in a coffee phase lately, so why not make an ‘all in one’ breakfast combo with Coffee Oatmeal. I love this recipe because it can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for a few days, making breakfast easy, quick and healthy. I’m part of those people that have a hard time eating breakfast because my appetite isn’t great in the mornings, but if I don’t eat I’ll collapse by the time lunch rolls around (true story!). So planning breakfast meals ahead of time helps me eat the right things and get the energy I need to start my day.
Last year I stopped drinking coffee for health reasons, not that I was a heavy drinker but I really wanted to eliminate all caffeine from my diet, improve my overall mood (coffee tends to…
I recently went to Seattle and learned that it was the “coffee city” in the US. Being European and having travelled many times to Italy, I had a hard time believing that there was better coffee than in Italy. Well I stand my ground on that one 😉 … but I did enjoy the coffee scene in Seattle and learned a lot about brewing methods.
It turns out Seattle is the city with the most coffee enthusiasts in the US, and this is mainly due to the fact that they are one of the world’s largest coffee roasting & coffee supply chain management cities.
A coffee culture has established itself throughout the years because of this, leading to the creation of the very first Starbucks shop in the world in 1971 as well as many independently owned coffee shops. It is rare…
