Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

I’m always a bit sad when fall arrives, because summer is my favorite season. But then I remind myself of all the good things that fall brings: colored leaves, roasted chestnuts, the cozy layered fashion, dark lipstick, and last but not least Pumpkin Spice Latte. Since Starbucks introduced this drink back in 2003, it has become one of the most popular seasonal beverages. I created this recipe to have a healthier and cheaper alternative to the original one – with real pumpkin, less calories and all natural ingredients. So snuggle in your onesie, make yourself a cup, turn on Netflix and enjoy fall season! Continue reading

I spent three nights there with a friend. We did some sightseeing, went to Disneyland and had our taste buds blown away by the local cuisine.

Here are some of my favorite places I’ve encountered as well as some practical tips for visiting Paris.

Salmon Mango Poké Bowl

One of my favorite dishes I’ve encountered on my travels is the poké bowl. It’s a traditional Hawaiian dish usually consisting of rice, veggies and seasoned raw fish. You can get it pretty much anywhere if you happen to be in Hawaii (lucky you!). If not, go ahead and make your own. This recipe is packed with some of my favorite ingredients: salmon, mango and avocado. If you thought this triple threat makes great sushi rolls, wait until you taste this kickass bowl.
