Creamy Barlotto with Beet and Hemp

By 4

A varied diet is a first step toward a healthier lifestyle, and I always like to search for alternatives to ingredients which tend to be a staple in my meals.

As versatile as rice, barley comes with a nutty flavor, a chewy consistency, and a mineral-rich nutritional profile, making it perfect for creating…

Chia, Acai and Strawberry Layered Breakfast Jar

Our pseudo-summer brought a new vibe, a fresh-ingredient-loaded diet, and new plans. We booked a two-week holiday in Cyprus, and although we’ll have a small kitchenette, I have to come up with a fresh and nourishing food plan to help us enjoy this island at its best.
