Spicy Black Bean Tostadas with Corn Salsa and Avocado

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 …

Cozy Turmeric Lemonade for Digestive Relief

Hello to long evenings spent on my terrace, watching the sunset and feeling grateful for everything I have. Summer is officially here, and all the heat and energy accumulated throughout the day needs to be gently dissolved with soothing drinks that remind me of sunlight.

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. During our summer holidays, we usually have fresh and easy breakfasts on our appartment terrace facing the sea, then wander around the island all day long. This first and most important meal of the day has to hydrate us, while providing nutrients to boost our energy and nourish our cells throughout the day without burdening the digestion …

Easy Quinoa Patties with Summer Herbs

While summer is the time of quick salads and fresh fruit smoothies, there is one dish which I’m always ready to heat up the oven or grill for. I love patties because they are so versatile – you can serve them in a whole wheat burger bun with a delicious sauce, you can hide them in a wrap, or simply have them as a quick meal next to a lush salad. They are very easy to make, you can play with ingredients any way you like, and make …
