Making a cup of thick old-fashioned hot chocolate [the healthy way]

In the middle of a cold winter, there is nothing more welcome that a cup of hot chocolate. The old fashioned thick chocolate you usually find served in smaller cups around the Continent is ideal to give a sense of warmth and satisfy the longing for comfort food and sweet cravings that the cold weather usually brings with it.

And there is a way to achieve that luscious thickness and keep a fairly healthy luxurious hot chocolate at the same time. I would say this recipe makes ad rich and creamy hot chocolate without the addition of cream and it is delicious’

Yoga with Pamela and Daisy

It was so beautiful and surreal to watch Pamela doing some warm up exercises before she was due on air with her 6 year old daughter Daisy.

And after her second visit, I can say that I am convinced that yoga with kids is a positive and beneficial activity for a parent and child.

Pamela and Daisy were so relaxed and focused on their activity that they are synchronized, in complete unision with each other and there was something magical about the bond between them.

With the such a lot going on in the studio, the crew, the rest of the guests on the show and the filming, I could not help but notice that Daisy was completely oblivious to all the commotion around her. It seemed that her mother was the only person in the room.

Quality time with your kid/s is so important and yoga with kids certainly gives you that.

Quick weekend baking: Orange Ginger Muffins

‘the idea of using the oranges that are still abundant and ginger makes these muffins sound so healthy with all that Vitamin C and healing properties of ginger.

A very quick, all-in-one method, these muffins can be prepared and baked in 20 minutes from start to finish. I used a mix of grated fresh ginger, ginger powder and crystallized ginger which resulted in the most rounded ginger flavor laced with orange and drizzled with melted dark sugar-free chocolate and more crystallized ginger pieces. These are the best muffins for a cold January, the ginger will give you instant warmth’.

Another 6 ingredient Soup of Zucchini, ginger and coconut [gluten free, diabetic friendly, vegan]

Things start getting back to normal after the celebrations and I like the routine of normality. The weather forecast is very cold for this weekend and this is another quick soup made with fresh and ordinary ingredients found in the kitchen cupboard and making a great big pot provides a healthy snack any time of the day for a cosy weekend indoors.

The flavour of ginger with the zucchini is just wow, and the addition of that bit of coconut milk. Key is to use fresh vegetables – it makes a difference.
