    Photography © Renee Kemps When you read this, I’ll be perusing the beautiful Brazilian coastal city of Natal, eating some of the purest açaí bowls in the world... and very probably still thinking about this simple yet delicious recipe. I’ve been on a health stint lately and I couldn’t be enjoying it more than I am right now making every decision in my day count. I don’t know if you knew: Coconut and Cocoa Nibs are the best decisions–always. I’m sorry, I don’t make the rules.

    Renee Kemps A talented Photography based out of Amsterdam and London–is responsible for re-awakening my passionate affair with both because her recipe hits your taste buds up just the way they like it. Renee also includes a recipe for Double Chocolate Brownie with whipped Creme Fraîche Cream and toasted Hazelnuts. I know.

    Photography © WSIHFBMy current breakfast routine is nothing to write home about. I usually just go for the easiest bet which in my book is oatmeal, while my head indulges in graphic breakfast images like this Poached Egg Over Millet stunner. I decided to give this recipe a go on Sunday (night) and even though I already knew it wouldn't disappoint - Because, as you know What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today is one of my favorite food blogs and Martha Greber my imaginary kick-ass food Guru. As usual, I was more than pleased with the results, millet happens to be one of my favorite things to eat, to a point in which one of the themes from my previous blog layouts collection was affectionately named after that holy grain. Go to Martha's blog for the full recipe and let me know if you give it a try.

    Photography © The Awesome Green etting back to my regular workout routine and healthy lifestyle hasn't been all that easy. Or was until I started planning ahead using recipes from some of the sites I like the most. I'm not vegan and I'm very far from being one but I truly enjoy eating quick and tasty food. Vegan or not, I also like to add a bunch of greens to my meals so this recipe made it to my weekly menu 3 times this week. Ana of The Awesome Green has an incredible repertoire that I'm dying to dive into.

    Photography © Anders Schønemann Bo Bedre has been one of my favorite websites for a long while and now I can whole-heatedly say I've become obsessed with it. Their food posts are incredibly inviting and having tested a few of their recipes I can truly say they more than do the trick. Their Festive Menu and scrumptious Men's Dinner are on the top of my list. I'm a girl that loves her pork rinds and choose beer over wine any time. Have a look at their site and get in the kitchen now... Or later.

    Photography © Studio You Me So much girl power in my posts this week. The creative women of Studio You Me are Kestie Lane and Hana Hakim. Their partnership is based on a mutual love of design, food, art and all things unique and obscure. This love of design unites them yet they each bring unique strengths and their individual sense of style and confidence to the practice. Their vision of The Kettle Black is simply magnificent. The Kettle Black has a quiet confidence nestled under the belly of an Elenberg Fraser apartment tower on Albert Road, South Melbourne. The light filled café is elegant and warm, it is authentic and hand crafted and is genuinely a feel good space with a friendly hustle. The black crafted steel hanging waiters stations and communal tables add the tough edge whilst the hexagonal marble tiles and brass detailing bring a refined elegance and luxury to the café. The true beauty and innovation of this project is how the design slowly reveals itself with a series of vignettes within the interior, an ordinary concrete construction pipe transformed into an elegant brass lined water basin. Stunning.

    Photography © Jaime Navarro I just came across Hueso Restaurant based in Mexico and I could not let this one go... Like a dog with a bone, get it? The restaurant is located in the Lafayette design district of the city - where renowned Mexican architect Diaz Morales for instance lives and works - the renovated modernist 1940s house with its lofty ceilings and startling décor is a masterpiece in its own right. Hueso, meaning ‘bone’ in English, couldn’t have a better name for a concept which according to Alfonso Cadena was ‘inspired by Darwinism’. Throughout the interiors, over 10,000 cast aluminium animal bones have been mounted on timber blocks to cover the walls like a second skin.

    Photography © Maud I need a vacation so that I can recover from our extended weekend getaway, friends. It's lovely to come back to work though. I truly enjoy finding gems such as this project by Maud. Nomad is a res­taur­ant serving exclus­ively local and Australian pro­duce. Maud took charge of the logo and interiors of this wonderful restaurant, employing a raw and nat­ural aes­thetic that is sympathetic to the restaurant’s culin­ary approach. Brilliant, yes?

    Photography © Ana Degenaar So we all know I love cooking and eating (!) by now but what I haven't told you is how much I've been disliking eating out lately. I don't even understand it myself, it doesn't really matter how healthy my choices are I always feel a little bit let down when I don't eat at my place or my friend's homes. I've always been sort of picky but I've reached a new limit and it isn't fun because some times I simply don't have the time to prep complicated meals so I'm learning to work with fewer, easier ingredients. This recipe takes less than 15 minutes to cook and it's one of my favorites. Please, feel free to make your own version of it.


    What you need:
    1 cup of instant couscous
    1 cup of chopped spinach leaves
    1/2 chopped red pepper
    1 cup of large prawns
    1 T of mint leaves
    Salt, pepper and cumin
    Black sesame seeds (optional)
    Olive oil


    The Process
    Cook the couscous following the instructions in the box or use this recipe. Cover it while you saute the spinach and red pepper and season that with salt, pepper and cumin, in a bowl season your prawns (shelled and clean) with salt, a little fresh black pepper, garlic and a few drops or olive oil, cook them on a hot grill for 1.5 minutes on each side and transfer them to a bowl, be careful not to overcook your prawns. Mix the couscous with the cooked spinach and red pepper and toss some mint leaves, a few drops of lemon and a little more olive oil. Top that with the cooked prawns, sprinkle sesame seeds and enjoy your weekend!
