The benefits of cucumber-lime-mint water

By on August 28, 2014

 As I told you, some of my French family was visiting this month.  And, to enjoy, indulge, celebrate, I did drink more wine than usual, eat more bread than usual.  I had fun!  However, now, my body feels a little off.  I am now trying to get back on track…  Not easy!  I miss my sugar fix after lunch, I did indulged AGAIN yesterday, you’ll see on Instagram.

On another note, our mini garden that we did for Food revolution has been a half success: We got a few peas, not that many.  The kids loved it.  The carrots… well, they got taken over by the cucumbers.  Carrots are out the picture now, but the cucumbers are numerous to the joy of the kids.

Cucumber lime mint water

 Since I indulged quite a bit and cucumbers are all over… Do you follow me?  Yes?  No?  How about a healthy cleanser flavored water? Bring it on!  My lovely neighbor showed me a little big stash of mint so here I go for a few leaves a the scented plant!  Add some lime.  And let it set.  Does it get any simpler?  I mean I am  sharing my recipe anyway but you know, sometimes you need the idea!  You’re welcome 🙂

Margaritas and swordfish ceviche tostadas

By on July 30, 2014

Do you smell the vacations?   Do you feel the sun?  Right, I don’t that much either… Toronto is having a weird summer.  How is yours?

Today, we are doing this a little different on Bon Appét’Eat.  I invited a friend to the blog, she is not a blogger, she used to be though, in French.

How did we meet?  Who is she?  What did she cook for you?  Have a seat, prepare one of her Margaritas and enjoy the reading!  You will love Noelle!

Margaritas

”Hey hi!

The blog post: This so amazing to be back on the culinary web world thanks Mel!  A few weeks ago I was complaining about having no time for creating my own blog while I would love to do it again and Melanie came to me with this crazy idea of writing on her blog just as a guest.  I was super excited and … then, no idea … I mean no new idea, white page, white screen… Oh my god! My brain went blank and I completely freaked out thinking OK look like my creativity had disappear!  This made me even more amazed by what Melanie is capable to do with her blog!  (Thanks Noelle :))

Triple sec rainbow cocktail in 5 minutes!

By on July 15, 2014

Let’s call it this way!  It was a rainbow before it went in the blender.   Bright sweet-smelling yellow pineapple, red juicy watermelon, the blue flavorful blueberries and… AND the cool green mint.  See?  A rainbow.

Triple sec cocktail

Yesterday, it was Monday, it was Bastille Day for French people so I figured that a boozy cocktail, a few crackers and cheese would be a perfect way to make a happy hour and start the week.

Fruity smoothie and healthy raspberry muffins for #FRD2014

By on May 17, 2014

The campaign is finished for today but you should apply Jamie Oliver’s message every day.  Involve your kids in the kitchen, teach them to eat healthy and have fun!

#FRD2014 raspberry muffins

That is right, a one bite treat that is actually healthy!  Very little sugar so your kids will not be over-exited with a sugar-rush.  Ah!  Those are awful.  For their little body and teeth.  And us.

As I was able to participate to the Food Revolution Day any other way than virtually, I decided to prepare healthy things the evening before and delivered them on the D-Day.
