When my kids told me that their #Irish friends (two twins sisters and a β€Žbrother) want to taste my #brunch 😍, I wanted to do something that they can β€Žrelate to and feel at home. I found out that black pudding is traditionally β€Žserved for #breakfast on St Patrick’s day. I had to search for one with β€Žquality ingredients and that is not Pork, as I don’t use it in my cooking. I β€Žfound @clonakilty_blackpudding which is run by a family since 1880. β€Ž
They use a secret recipe which has been handed down through generations πŸ‘Œ. Originating in β€Žthe beautiful Irish town of Clonakilty, West Cork with the recipe only known to the head of the β€Žfamily, Colette Twomey! Wow sounds like I am setting an ancient classic!!β€Ž #clonakiltyblackpudding #Ad #irishfood #stpatricksday

Good Morning ❀️.. Breakfast this Morning πŸ€—


As a mother you never expect appreciation, thank you or something in return.. you only give and with no limits.. when we are appreciated though we are filled with joy and boundless happiness that our love has created thoughtful and loving beings..
Happy Mother's day to every woman and mother especialy to my one and only Mum πŸ’•...
P.S : As a lebanese I get to celebrate Mother's day twice so not hinting that I am expecting a second gift on March 21 😌 .. Just saying πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ€—

Sorry guys no treat for you today... This post is dedicated only to women πŸ€—πŸ˜ #feminist
They call us the weaker sex and yet they say the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world... They try to confine us but they cant handle us.. The truth is as @beyonce says β€œ who runs the world” you get what I mean πŸ˜‰
Now enough talking... wear your crown proudly πŸ‘‘.. Happy women's day πŸ’•

I am a great fan of hot African food πŸ˜‹, which we cook quite often at home and is very rich in taste with β€Žminimum spices leaving the vegetables flavour to stand out 😍..I have tried the mouth-β€Žwatering meal pot RED RED Smokey Okra and Lentil Stew, which I prepared in 7 minutes only! β€ŽAnd it was full of flavour. I have added hot chili to give it a kick and authenticity of African food, β€Žand if I was not in a hurry, I would have cooked some #fufu with it, but it is also great to have β€Ž@redredstews with bread or plain basmati rice. #redredstewsEnjoy this #vegan meal and make your lunch less ordinary! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜..Check link in bio πŸ€— β€Žβ€Ž#inspiredbyafricaremixedbylondon #alunchlessordinary #adβ€Ž


Good Morning πŸ’™.. Having a healthy breakfast is a requirement for my lifestyle and porridge is one of the main β€Žingredients that I frequently use because it is tasty with fruits and berries, and is rich in fibers and energy to kick of the day on the right foot πŸ€—
Today I have used @momafoods porridge, I just added Hot water to it and that's it.. Saved me time to prepare, β€Žwhich I used to prepare the coconut to have a fancy breakfast and share with you😍

While getting ready for a Movie Night at home with the family, Thor summoned his hammer from the cupcake! Shall we give it to him?? Well we don’t have a β€Žchoice πŸ€”, if he asks for it will go to him! But will my handmade Hammer go to him or stay with us to β€Žeat?β€Ž πŸ€—πŸ˜„

Knowing what is right and what is not right for you in a diet, is not a black magic anymore!! β€ŽAlthough I think that I am already on a healthy diet and I use healthy ingredients in my diet. I am β€Žexcited to be able to have some scientific facts behind it with MyDNA Weight Management DNA β€ŽTest, to see if I am doing the right thing or should I add or remove something from my cuisine, lifestyle and

Today I am having a treat with a friend who loves Vietnamese food 😍. Since I am not familiar with β€Žtheir cuisine I have decided to order a selection that we both could enjoy, mainly sea food. A β€Žquick look into @Ubereats_uk application and voila I have found the right local Vietnamese β€Žrestaurant to deliver my food within 30 minutes through Uber eats πŸ€—.
After I have placed the order, β€Žwhich was a breezy and simple to do so, I received several SMS messages for every step of the β€Žprocess and they were delivered as promised on time.. HOT, ready to eat and the food was great! β€ŽI was impressed!. Enjoy! β€Ž @Ubereats_uk is offering a two for one promotion for orders between 14 and 18th of Feb 2018. β€Žβ€Ž#ad #BFFWeekendβ€Ž


I wanted to do a smoothie without the worry to buy too many fruits or to create food waste while β€Žtesting combinations to come up with a great texture and taste πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ. Getting Batch Organic helped me β€Žwith my mission. I tried 4 different smoothies combinations and I am showing the mint chocolate β€Žone here . However, If you don’t like too much β€Žminty flavour you can add frozen banana to the mixture to dilute the mint taste, while maintaining the great β€Žoverall taste and even get a better texture!β€Ž πŸ˜πŸ˜‹

Fruits for breakfast.. Yes or No?
To be honest I can't have plain fruits in the morning and I don't know why! I always prefer to have them with my oats and morning bowls but never alone. What about you?
