    Eat Together at Plaka Restaurant 💙

    Have you ever visited Plaka? This Greek restaurant franchise is no newbie and has been around since 1993 and in that time, come to be known as one of the most authentic Greek restaurants in our city. Plaka’s namesake village Named after the famous village of Plaka in Athens, the restaurant takes a fresh approach to the best of traditional Greek dishes. While I haven’t yet been to Greece, it most definitely is on the bucket list for future travel plans. When I think of Greece, I think of blue and white houses, irresistible food, strong coffee, sweet biscuits, ancient ruins and high-spirited people. It is no secret that the…

    Speckled Egg & Cocoa Nib Bark

    So, Easter is around the corner and to celebrate I am making this super delicious Speckled Egg & Cocoa Nib Bark. If you have not ever tried using cocoa nibs, you are seriously missing out! These little nibs not only add an intense chocolate flavour to foods but also a subtle and satisfying crunch. You make think that they are too bitter but you’d be surprised! They have all the benefits of eating dark chocolate, without the added sugar. They are high in fibre, protein, and antioxidants, and contain the same mood-boosting chemicals that make a bar of dark chocolate so satisfying. I am obsessed with them at the moment…

    Mango & Black Rice Salad

    Here’s a very short and sweet recipe for my Sweet and Salty Mango & Black Rice Salad. I picked some black rice up when visiting The Refillery because it’s the only place I have seen it in Jozi! Black rice is known as ‘forbidden rice’ or ‘emperors rice’ because it used to be reserved for Chinese Royalty. Besides being gluten-free, it is higher in fibre than white rice, Black Rice also boasts 8.5g of protein per 100g! Here’s the recipe for a side salad using this awesome ingredient, or if you are feeling hungry – a salad for one!

    Raspberry Powder Chia Pudding

    Pretty in Pink right? This healthy recipe is for a gorgeously bright Raspberry Powder Chia Pudding. I used both raspberry powder and fresh raspberries to create this sweet, yet tart Chia Pudding. Eat for breakfast or as a snack. I have mentioned quite a few times that Chia Pudding is one of my favourite gluten-free snacks and breakfasts, for a few reasons. Just two tablespoons of chia seeds contain 4g of protein and they are also a good source of soluble fibre – which is very soothing to the gut. Chia Seeds also contain iron and Omega 3’s and have a neutral taste, taking on any flavour you add to…

    1 Year of Le Famished Cat 🧁

    One year ago, I hit PUBLISH and one of my biggest dreams came true – I finally found a way to make food apart of my day to day life and subsequently – my career path. This week I am celebrating my blogs one-year birthday… and I am feeling, well, a bit proud! The Growth Curve I cannot believe how much I have learned in the last year – I know it sounds cheesy – but it is so true. When I started blogging last year March, I had no idea what I was doing – except that I knew that I wanted to have a place to store recipes. You…

    Cadbury Dairy Milk – Easter Range

    You guys must know by now that I have a severe weakness for chocolate. So I just HAD to let you know that Cadbury Dairy Milk has a new easter egg range.  There are three different easter egg variants to choose from, including these Hollow Eggs that are filled with Astros and Whispers…😍 What’s more exciting than eating chocolate only to discover more chocolate hidden inside?  And the best part, (in my opinion anyway) Cadbury Dairy Milk has now introduced marshmallow eggs called Fluffies! They come in a box of 30 or at some stores, you can find the individual marshmallow eggs. Let’s talk about these Fluffies. First off, the…

    Dairy Free Milk Alternatives & Banana Milk Recipe

    When it comes to milk alternatives, there is a multitude of Dairy Free, plant milks on offer in South Africa. Just visit any Dischem, Clicks, Checkers, and Woolworths and you will have the option to try them all. I try to follow a dairy free diet as much as possible (partly because of my IBS issues, partly because of wanting to eat fewer animal products) so choosing to drink non-dairy milk is a no-brainer for me. However, with so many choices, how do we know which type of non-dairy milk to buy? How do we know which type works best in which recipe? Today I am breaking down all the…
