Here’s our very first pregnancy-related video, for all you curious readers and fellow mums-to-be! I’m now 23 weeks into my pregnancy, and it’s been an extremely positive and expansive experience so far.   I’m sure fellow mums out there will agree that pregnancy is a rich process of discovery. There are so many new health ...

The Upper Marais district in Paris has taken over as a sort of veggie vortex. In short, throw a rock anywhere between Avenue de Bretagne and Place de la République and you’ll hit either a hipster or a vegan restaurant. That’s not to say that all are created equal — but at least you won’t have to ...

Another month, another delightful cooking workshop at 5 Lorette with our lovely readers, making easy and fun vegan dishes together. February’s class was Saint Valentine-themed, which gave us an excellent opportunity to delve into the wonderful world of aphrodisiac foods.

My Spanish up till that point was rudimentary at best, and I really wanted to become fluent. This year, I’m so delighted ...

Our love affair with moringa continues. It’s the super-est of superfoods, filled with protein, iron, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and vitamins A (beautiful skin) and C (immunity). This time we’ve made a delightfully green and brain-freeze-y superfood bowl, perfect for a delish dessert or a decadent, yet highly nutritious, breakfast. Smoothie bowls are easy to make ...

My mother sends me a weather report email every night before she goes to bed on the West Coast of the United States, which ends up being right before I get up to start the new day in Paris.
