Not long time ago, I found one of the best food blogs ever. It is called Gotuj zdrowo! The fact I like the most is that the owner of that blog, Marek, comes from the same city as me ;)

The blog looks amazing. Beautiful photos and lots of information about ingredients used in prepared dishes.
Marek, the same as me, stands for conscious nutrition and eating healthily as a way of prevention. He is aware that food heals and nourishes us.

'Real' food brings health and happiness to your life so you can enjoy it for longer!

Finally, I received recipe of my mum's apricot jam.  She has been doing it for many years and now, as I am not living close to her, I made mine. It is so easy and actually you can use any fruits you like.


  • apricots
  • coconut sugar


Wash fruits, remove pips and cut into chunks. Weigh fruits and then measure the same amount of sugar (I use a little less as I do not like very sweet jam).

Place apricots and top with sugar in large double bottom saucepan. Set aside for half an hour (my mum leaves them overnight).

Then fry on small gas stirring occasionally until the mixture gets thick. Transfer into clean and dry jars, close tightly and place upside down.

Enjoy on top of toast or with pancakes!

Seeing photo of Tara Stile's 'Snickerdoodles' made me want to try her simple recipe. I know it sounds strange but I often get attracted by photos first and then I check the recipe and adapt it to myself.

Z przepisu wychodzi sporo ciasteczek, jeżeli zrobicie je o średnicy około 3 cm. Można je przechowywać przez kilka dni - jednak trudno się im oprzeć więc ostrzegam ;)

  • 1 łyżeczka ekstraktu z wanilii (opcjonalnie)

Posypać wszystkie ziarenkami sezamu i piec około 20 minut, aż będą lekko brązowo-złociste. Wyjąć z piekarnika i zostawić do wystygnięcia.

I am a big fan of pancakes. They can be thin and moist, thick and soft, fried only on one or both sides etc.

The best is the fact that you can serve them at any time of the day with a variety of toppings, as savoury or sweet dish. That is simply perfect!

/ Recipe adapted from here /

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of any nut milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 & 1/3 cup white or wholegrain spelt flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp maple syrup


Mix all ingredients in a large bowl using whisk. Warm up medium size frying pan over medium heat. Spread the batter as thin as possible over the whole pan. When golden brown, flip the pancake and fry one more minute on the other side.

Serve with favourite nut butter, fresh berries, maple syrup or any other thing you like :)

Autumn is coming... I have already started craving warming up dishes and seeing so lovely orange round pumpkins I had to make one of my favourite soups. 


  • 1 medium pumpkin
  • 2 medium onions
  • 2 TBS ghee
  • 1 cube of vegetable stock (I use that one)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • pink salt
  • toasted pumpkin seeds


Cut onion in small pieces. Melt ghee on a frying pan, add onion and saute until soft. 

Cut pumpkin in medium size pieces, transfer to a large pan, add onion, vegetable stock cube and cover with water just until it reaches the level of vegetables. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes or until pumpkin is soft.

When it is ready, blend it until smooth using hand blender or food processor. Season with cinnamon, turmeric and salt to taste.

Sprinkle with toasted pumpkin seeds and enjoy!
