About Shannon Lim

I LOVE FOOD - eating that is, always trying out food from different cultures. Living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where food is available 24hours, hunting food places became a weekly past time. 2 years ago when I attended an Ayurvedic talk, only did I realised how much junk i put in my body. Busy lifestyle and hectic schedules did not help, it was easier to have canned & frozen food on standby. Little did I know that those food fill my hunger, but does nothing to my body. I slowly increased my intake of fresh food & ingredients, and begins my quest to re-learn preparing my meals from scratch.. and I've been hooked since! Not having the patience for long hours of food preparation, I always look for easy recipes or simplify them. You will discover how simple it can be to produce delicious and wholesome meals that will sum up your day. I'm here to share QUICK & HEALTHY RECIPES with fresh natural ingredients, that is JUST AS DELISH! I hope I can inspire you to start spending more time in your kitchen and discover the chef within you.

Sugar (even honey and fruits) and gluten filled grains is a haven for the […]
