The tastiest and Healthiest Carrot Cake

I was thinking what should I name the carrot cake, is it winter cake, or summer cake or fall cake, actually it is a year-round cake because carrots are pretty much always in season. 

This healthy carrot cake recipe is very easy, fast and healthy. I tried different versions, substituted a number of  ingredients until I got this one, and Im telling you with confidence that it is the BEST CARROT CAKE EVER.



2 cups of flour

2 cups shredded carrots

1 cup of crushed walnuts

2 tbs cinnamon

2 eggs

1 tbs vanilla extract

1/3 cup of coconut oil

1/2 cup of honey

1 cup of greek yogurt

1 cup coconut milk

2 big spoons of coconut creme

2 tbs baking soda

3 tbs baking powder

1/2 tbs salt

1 cup coconut flakes

Greek yogurt Icing:

1/2  cup of greek yogurt

1/2 cup of heavy creme

3 tbsp of mascarpone cheese

1/2 cup of coconut sugar

1 tbs vanilla extract

Coconut flakes for garnishing


  1. Preheat oven 180 degree celsius. 
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs for 10 seconds, then add yogurt, coconut milk, coconut creme, vanilla extract, honey whisk well and put aside.
  3. In another bowl, mix the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt whisk well and set aside.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, until well combined
  5. Add carrots, walnuts and coconut flakes whisk until combined, don’t over whisk.
  6. Pour into a baking dish that you already sprayed with coconut oil.
  7. Let it rest for 10 min than put in oven for 30 min
  8. Prepare the Icing: in a bowl, mix the yogurt, heavy creme, mascarpone cheese, sugar and vanilla extract together.
  9. If you are doing one big cake, transfer the icing on top of the cake a spread with spatula and garnish with coconut flakes or eatable flowers. If you are doing smaller portions like I did today, I used the muffins baking try, you can add the icing on each piece before serving.

Tip: If your yogurt is less than 10% fat, put the yogurt in a coffee filter or paper sheet on top of the bowl for 4 hours in the fridge until it stains.

Are Suits Only for Men?

New year’s eve is just around the corner, so you can always do the “new year, new you” earlier and refresh your wardrobe for a warm winter look. The one must-have trend for this fall/winter season is the “Power Suit”.

Power suits tend to live in a controversial space where some women say “we don’t need to dress like men to feel and look powerful and independent” and some others like the look, comfort, and attitude it reflects. After all, who said suits are just for men?

The suit history started in 1914 with Coco Chanel Shaping the Modern Woman.

Coco Chanel was actually one of the first to take menswear designs and repackage them for women. She’s credited with creating the first female suit. Granted, it didn’t include trousers or bow ties, instead, it featured nice fitting jackets with skirts. This definitely opened the door to the idea of wearing more masculine yet elegant and chic outfits.

In 1966 Yve Saint Laurent introduced le smoking, the first tuxedo suit designed for women. At that time tuxedo suits were more a political statement than a Fashion statement.

In 1970 with more and more women entering the workforce and invading the boys’ club, they needed a symbol that proved they were just as serious and competent as the guys riding up the elevator with them to the office. And apparently the only way to convince male-dominated executives is by wearing similar outfits. “The suit represented a serious woman”.

Up until 2010 suits were representing power, gender equality, and independence.  When jeans and sneakers became accepted in the office same as the suit, some executive women kept wearing the suit because in their opinion it is more appropriate for work, while other women felt free to wear whatever they want and express their own style.

Even Giorgio Armani — the granddaddy of power suits himself — was quoted saying, “Women have edged out their standing in the world. Today, they don’t have to wear a suit jacket to prove their authority.”

Personally, I love wearing suits with a feminine touch like statement earrings, high heels, a colored shirt or a nice bag. After all, we dress to reflect our personality and mood. I always take outfits as a piece of art and you will be seeing me wearing a lot of fashionable suits this season

What are you wearing this Winter?
