Spicy Black Bean Tostadas with Corn Salsa and Avocado

By 0

We started experimenting with spiciness recently, so ever since, we became interested in Mexican food. While tacos are a good option to quickly assemble a healthy lunch to-go, tostadas are my choice when I have guests and I need something easy to make, nourishing and appealing. The crunchy base of tostadas calls for juicy salsas, and anything fresh ingredient-related is definitely a good choice for me. This recipe is one of our summer favorites because it’s ready in less than half an hour, it’s filling and has a very …

Japan is my dream travel destination that I’m planning for next year. I don’t know if it will become a reality, but I’m planting the seeds in my mind, setting a goal, and I am sure it will happen soon. For this sometimes chaotic European who’s always in a hurry, Japan makes it look like slowing down and discipline were invented there. Everything seems to be in its place, allowing life to …

Who says that pizza is all about melting mozzarella and decadent toppings? Why wouldn’t it be about a healthy and tasty meal your body will actually enjoy? I love pizza in every way, but to have it as often as I want, I’m always experimenting with lighter versions and healthier toppings. And since my fridge is stuffed with spring produce, today’s pizza couldn’t be anything but …

I am not a calorie-counter, but given my hormone imbalance condition, I have to be careful what I eat and when. I always look for smart food combinations and try not to eat after 7 pm to allow my body the time to prepare for nighttime regeneration and not turn its focus on digestion. And, if I see an opportunity to reduce calories and preserve the quality of my food, I’ll definitely…
