Chia seeds pudding with berries

Imagem
As many of my followers know I’m doing the Paleo Diet, and one of the things I discovered with this new lifestyle were the Chia Seeds and the only think I can say is that you can do yummy desserts with this seeds!  They  are awesome with fresh berries, mango, banana, nuts, coconut flaxs or with chocolate. You can do hundreds of different combinations and it’s the perfect breakfast when you are in a rush because you can prepare in the night before.
The best part of it is that they are very good for you:
“Chia is an edible seed that comes from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, a member of the mint family that grows abundantly in southern Mexico. In pre-Columbian times they were a main component of the Aztec and Mayan diets and were the basic survival ration of Aztec warriors. I’ve read that one tablespoon was believed to sustain an individual for 24 hours. The Aztecs also used chia medicinally to stimulate saliva flow and to relieve joint pain and sore skin.” – Quoted from Dr.Weil!

Maria's birthday party - Unicorn party

Imagem
Maria’s birthday will be just in July but since she never had a party with her friends from Singapore ( we are always away during the summer), this year I decided to celebrate it early! 
We invited all her friends and she wanted a rainbow unicorn party🦄🌈! I spent all my Friday baking and cooking for 50 people but it was worth it! She was super happy and excited!



Some appetiser... And a super yummy sangria...
Me and my friend Bego did a kids Zumba class and we played a few games with the kids!
Her smile ....
Piñata time.... After so much fun the kids and adults had lunch, pizza, lasagna and cod fish with cream! 
After....the perfect dessert... my delicious triffle with berries and custard...
And brownies...

And final the happy birthday to Maria...
She asked for a vanilla cake with pink icing...it was super delicious!
‘Some days, she has no idea how she’ll do it. But every single day, it still gets done’!

The best coffee in Singapore ‘Perk’

Imagem
In Portugal, everybody (or almost) is addicted to coffee, we start our day with a Cafe Latte (galão) and a croissant or a cake or toasts and after we will have a expresso! Of course, it’s completely outside the Paleo concept and I try to avoid this kind of meal, even though it’s so delicious! Nothing can beat the flavour of our express because it’s so unique but I always wonder if I could find something similar in Singapore. In Singapore you can find the local coffee, they call it Kopi-O (black, with sugar) or Kopi-C ( coffee with unsweetened evaporated milk (the C is for Carnation), but they’ll still add sugar😬😬). The problem is that it’s super strong and you just can take one in the morning, otherwise you won’t sleep at night. This is the traditional Singaporean breakfast with two soft boiled eggs and a toast with butter or kaya toast! A very funny way to have your coffee is in a plastic bag, because if you want to take away its a very easy way to transport your hot drink:  Hopefully,…

Asparagus with Bacon

Imagem
Sometimes people complain that they don’t have time to eat healthy things or to do diet! I understand that it’s easy to grab a cookie or a croissant either than prepare something more healthier. In my case, I always do a lot of snacks on weekends so when I’m hungry during the week I don’t do any mistake. Last night I prepare a bunch of asparagus with bacon in the oven for dinner and also for my breakfast today! The leftovers I will eat it when I’m hungry during the week! I really hope that you enjoy as much as me!

Avo & Co the best veggies and fruit in town!!

Imagem
The biggest challenge in Singapore is how not to spend a fortune in food every month, mostly because we are a family of 5 and i really try to give the best meals to them! You have many places that you can buy wonderful veggies and fruit, of course the wet markets are the cheapest ones[not my favourite option though because im very sensitive to strong smells, like Durian, lamb, fish, etc), the best one in my opinion is the WholeSale Center in Pasir Panjang but you need to buy big amount (you always can share with your friends). But after 5 years i just discovered a very good way to buy the best veggies and fruits in Singapore that doesn't crash my budget, Avo&Co, you can take a look in the website and order a small or big basket, add some favourite veggies/fruits and just wait for the delivery at home. This service is super convenient when, in my case, im always struggling with no time for anything! The link for the website is here: www.avoandco.com. They also have red meat from…
