Finding healthy savoury snacks has been something of a holy grail for me. My snack of choice: a pack of Kettle’s chilli chips (or really just about any chips!) is probably not something to be included in your daily intake, and with my wedding coming up, I’ve really been trying to clean up my diet. I stumbled upon David Lebovitz’s recipe for pistachio and chorizo cake which looked amazing, but as I was without a loaf tin, I decided to tweak the recipe and re-create it in muffin form.
With my wedding coming up later in the year, I have been attempting to make some healthier choices in my daily diet. One of my many vices is ice cream. My fiancé and I both enjoy the childhood favourite of simply vanilla ice cream with lashings of Ice Magic (which, incidentally, now comes in a chocolate peanut butter version!); while Ben & Jerry’s opening up business in Australia was bad not only for my waistline, but also my wallet (my favourites are Clusterfluff and Couch Potato). So after hearing so much about chia seed puddings and not only how good chia is for you, but also how easy it is to make, I figured I should at least try it as an ice cream substitute!
Pollen is an appropriate name for a restaurant set in the stunning Gardens by the Bay in Singapore. The towering SuperTrees that could have come straight out of Avatar are the awe-inspiring backdrop to your buggy ride to the restaurant.
