Thought I’d share with you everything we ate in a day again. It was quite a simple day with nothing too fancy. Just delicious home-cooked food. I always think that simple food is the best one, don’t you think? I also prepared some food for the next day, made my first fresh cream cheese (or quark), and expressed what I think of food preparation. My doggie made her own little appearance and showed off her tricks.

Authentic Eastern European Rye Sourdough Bread

How To Make Authentic Eastern European Rye Sourdough Bread

Is your starter ready? Last week, I wrote about making your own sourdough starter from scratch using wild yeast. If your starter has been growing for 7 days or if you already have a ready-made starter, it’s time to make some authentic Eastern European rye bread! I literally grew up on that kind of bread, it’s a real diet staple in my contry, and I’d been missing it so much since moving to Spain. Then, I got a brilliant idea to try and make my own bread. Big success! I truly believe that Lithuanian dark rye bread is the best one in the world, and if you tasted it, I’m sure you would agree with me. Yes, there is the German one, the Russian one and the Scandinavian one, but none of them is as good as ours. Seriously! So today I’d like to share with you a recipe of the traditional Eastern European (or Lithuanian) rye sourdough bread with sunflower seeds (or any other seeds of your choice).

Rye Sourdough Starter

In this part of the mini series, I’m going to show you how you can make your own sourdough starter from scratch. Trust me, you’ll feel so accomplished when it’s fully grown. It’s a bit like successfully growing a pet. Kind of. A sourdough starter like this doesn’t require any commercial yeast. All it needs is just two ingredients, and a bit of TLC. Making bread is so easy that every single household could make their own.

July Favourites 2014 | Holistic Lifestyle

July Favourites 2014 - Holistic Lifestyle

It’s that time of the month again when I share all of my monthly obsessions. This month it’s mostly food, but there are a couple of books, a beauty item, a blog and a YouTuber. It’s funny how every month I don’t know if I’ll have enough to talk about in my Favourites video, but somehow the list overflows every single time. I love trying new things and learning every single day, so I guess that’s the reason why. It also seems to be the best way to never get old: just keep moving and evolving! :-)

What I Get From The Farmers’ Market – My Weekly Shopping List

What I get in the farmers' market - my weekly shopping list

I came back from my weekly shopping trip to the farmers’ market and I couldn’t help admiring all the beauties in my fridge. So I decided to share them all with you! I think this would work well as a sample weekly shopping list for those of you who are starting out and are looking for some ideas or guidance. None of the items are exotic or difficult to find, so I guess this video is pretty universal. I give some cooking/use suggestions as I go along as well.
