• Fresh Mung Beans Salad

    Today I want to talk about Mung Beans. Have you ever tried them? Looking around I’ve noticed that they are not very popular and realised that many people don’t even know what they are. The mung beans are these little green beans which apart from having a good taste, are really good for our body!   Mung Beans are a high source of nutrients like manganese, potassium, magnesium, folate, zinc and the essential B vitamins. They are also high in protein and fiber which make them ideal for those of you that follow a vegan or vegetarian diet. If you have never tried them before, I would recommend to give them a try! They…

  • Spinach & Chestnut Mushroom Buckwheat

    Let’s talk about Superfoods. Have you ever tried buckwheat? Buckwheat is often confused with a grain because of the way it is cooked and used, but it’s actually a ‘pseudo-cereal’ seed related to rhubarb and sorrel. It’s a good source of protein, containing all the essential amino acids. It is an excellent source of manganese and magnesium and a good source of selenium, niacin, folate, iron, zinc, copper and phosphorus. It’s naturally gluten-free and can be used as an alternative to rice, barley, porridge or even flour. Just to give you an idea, here is the recipe of the Spinach & Chestnut Mushroom Buckwheat that I prepared yesterday using @forestwholefoods organic Buckwheat…

  • Healthy Smoothie Bowls

    As I’m a big fan of Smoothie Bowls, I’ve decided to make a post about them! Have you ever tried a Smoothie Bowl? If you have never had a one and are wondering “What is a Smoothie Bowl?”, “How can I prepare a Smoothie Bowl?” or “What’s the difference between a Smoothie and a Smoothie Bowl?” Well, the answer is pretty easy. Smoothie bowls as the name say are smoothie that are eaten in a bowl. The main difference from a normal smoothie is the consistency, they are usually thicker so that you can eat them with a spoon, and they have toppings. Toppings are the best part of a smoothie bowl!…

  • Vegan Spirulina Smoothie Bowl

    Here we are again with a new Smoothie Bowl recipe! This time I want to propose you a Spirulina Smoothie Bowl! Have you ever tried Spirulina? If you haven’t heard of spirulina before, it’s a natural “algae” that is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants, B-vitamins, amino acids, iron, chlorophyll, and magnesium. When harvested correctly from non-contaminated ponds and bodies of water, it is one of the most potent nutrient sources available!! I won’t lie to you, it doesn’t taste so great as it has a very strong flavor, but trust me, when mixed in a smoothie it tastes wonderful and the health benefits of this algae are so good…

  • Dairy-Free (and Guilt-Free) Dark Chocolate Crêpes

    Did I tell you that I really like experimenting and creating new recipes? Well, today I woke up feeling like something sweet and given that I had a few eggs in the fridge to get rid of, I decided to prepare crepes! But careful, these are not normal crepes! Normal crepes are made with milk, eggs, flour, butter, and in some cases water. These crepes as the title says are “Dairy-Free” and “Guilt-Free”!! In fact, they are lighter than usual crepes and are suitable for those of you that have a dairy allergy or simply don’t consume dairy products. For the base, I only used 5 ingredients: eggs, flour, non-dairy milk,…

  • Colourful Quinoa Salad

    Today I was sorting out my cupboard when I saw a brand new pack of quinoa. I haven’t had quinoa for a while and since I wanted something tasty, colourful and light (considering that tomorrow is Easter and a big lunch is waiting for me), I decided to prepare a quinoa salad. Quinoa is a great ingredient as it’s high in fiber and protein. I also like its texture and think it fits perfectly with vegetables. I decided to experiment with the ingredients that I had in my fridge and I was so happy with the result that I decided to share the recipe with you. I’ll definitely prepare more next week…

  • Pink Berries Smoothie Bowl

    Since I discovered the smoothie bowls I always prepare one for the weekend! They are so easy to prepare and trust me, they taste amazing! You can use whatever ingredient you want and something that I found amazing is that everybody can eat a smoothie bowl! It doesn’t matter if you have a nut allergy, milk allergy, gluten allergy, or if you have any other allergies! You will always be able to prepare a smoothie bowl that tastes amazing and fits your own food needs! I always prepare dairy-free, vegan smoothie bowls and I’ve never felt that something was missing! For the base, you just need frozen fruit (or vegetables), milk…
