Healthy Easter Recipes Roundup

By 2

Choosing healthy for Easter might seem like a mission impossible, but there’s always a lot of inspiration from bloggers and magazines to keep you on the right track. I like to save my favorite recipes in bookmarks and browse them when Easter is approaching to get inspired and create something new or even making some of these healthy dishes. This year I also created an Easter Pinterest board to keep everything in one place. Farmers’ market is the best place to shop now, because all the spring greens – nettles, wild garlic, spinach, asparagus, parsley, watercress – are in season. Remember that holidays aren’t about stressing out with complicated dishes, but spending time with family and friends, chilling and …

Rich Chocolate Tart, Vegan and Gluten-Free

By 19

There are foods that come and go from my diet, but chocolate is something that always manages to find its way back into my life. I adore dark chocolate, and although I try to stay as far away from sugar as I can, I try to find new ways of indulging without feeling guilty or putting a big burden on my digestive system. When I first discovered raw cacao powder, it was like a miracle. Its intense flavor could turn any insipid vegan dessert into a delicious treat. I add it to porridges, puddings, raw energy balls, smoothies, or healthy desserts and it always reveals a …

Spring Greens Soup with Baked Parsnip Fries

Nothing makes me happier than the first spring picnic in the park. Of course, it’s still pretty cold here and the ground is still wet, so placing the blanket on the grass is totally out of the question, but having a warm soup on the bank, watching the first signs of a blooming spring is definitely a great choice. It’s been more and more difficult for me to bear the winters, and we started to consider relocating during the long winter months somewhere in the Mediterranean. I dream of …

Thai Cauliflower Rice Salad with Peanut Butter Sauce

Spring bloomed in force over here, turning all of us upside down. All of a sudden, the temperature raised from 0 to 13 degrees, the lilac bushes got tiny green sprouts, and the parks suddenly got crowded. After such a long time without seeing the face of the sun, its first rays put me in the mood to plan for holidays. No, we’re not going to Thailand yet (although I’d love to), but I’m celebrating the beginning of spring with…

3 Restoring Spring Juices

The sad news about Jess’s passing left me perplexed and turned my beliefs upside down. She was one of the people I really admired and from which I learned a lot. When I first became interested in a natural way of living, I found so much inspiration on her site, “The Wellness Warrior”. Moments like these leave you confused, and so many questions start bouncing into your head trying to …

Super Healthy Breakfast Sandwich plus 3 Fabulous Facts About Avocados

By 14

Avocado is never missing from my fridge. No matter how uninspired I feel one day, if I have an avocado, I know I will be able to put together a delicious meal. In salads, on toast, as a dip, on top of curries and stews, in raw desserts, as a sauce for veggie burgers, in smoothies, with eggs, or just as it is, simple, with sea salt and lemon, avocado is among my favorite ingredients. Creamy, dense, and unctuous, this fruit is a real powerhouse when it comes to nutrients, and has incredible benefits for our health, although some people tend to avoid it given …
