Fall is definitely here, low temperatures, leaves on the ground, lots of rain, yeah i know its a cliche but this is what it is.

So if its fall that mean everything pumpkin: pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin pie, pumpkin doughnuts and obviously pumpkin soup.

  2. Add the ginger, lemongrass and coriander roots and stalks. Cook until the stalks become soft before adding the pumpkin.
  3. Toss the pumpkin in the oil and cook for 5 minutes. Add the water and bring to a boil before reducing the heat to lower. Cook for 30 minutes or until the pumpkin is tender. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  4. Pour the soup into a blender and blend until smooth. Add most of the chopped coriander (cilantro) leaves reserving some to garnish the soup.
  5. Return to a clean saucepan and add the coconut milk. Serve with shaved coconut, the remaining coriander (cilantro) leaves and chili.

Chia Seed Pudding Recipe

Good morning my dears!

Here is a breakfast idea for you, that gives you energy, it’s loaded with nutrients and it’s super delicious.

wpid-dark_chia_sq__38560.1405434241.1280.1280.jpgThis pudding is made of chia seeds, I think you all heard about this super-food, if not, I tell you a few things about them:

1. The word “Chia” comes from the Mayan language and means strength. Chia seeds are a balanced blend of protein, carbohydrates, fats and fiber. It is said that 1 tablespoon of Chia can sustain a person for 24 hours. Athletes have reported that Chia seeds help them perform at optimal levels for much longer periods of time.

2. Chia seeds are high in quality protein, much higher than most plant foods.

3. Chia seeds are very high in Omega-3 fatty acids, they contain more Omega-3s than salmon, gram for gram.

4. They are high in antioxidants.

5. Almost all of the carbohydrates in chia seeds are fiber, this should increase fullness, slow absorption of your food and help you automatically eat fewer calories.

6. Chia seeds can play an important role in regulating insulin levels. They can reduce insulin resistance and decrease abnormally high levels of insulin in the blood.

7. Chia seeds contain no gluten or grains. Therefore, all of the nutritional benefits of chia seeds can be obtained on a gluten-free diet.

8. They can be used as an egg re-placer, combining 1 tablespoon ground chia seeds with 3 tablespoons water for each egg you’re replacing.

And now here it is the delicious recipe

wpid-img_20141202_101959.jpgIngredients
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (coconut milk or rice milk)
1 cup plain  Greek yoghurt
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or raw honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup chia seeds
handful of raspberries or strawberries

Directions
In a medium bowl, gently whisk the almond milk, yoghurt, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, the vanilla until just blended. Whisk in the chia seeds. Cover and put them in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Enjoy!

Healthy breakfast

mushrooms

Good morning my dear readers!

Today I have for you an easy healthy delicious breakfast. I wrote a lot’s of time about the importance of eating breakfast every day before you leave your house. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it gives you energy and you will feel less hungry in the late afternoon or in the night .

I made this breakfast for Valentine’s day, I think it’s obvious enough 🙂

Here is what you need:

  • 200 gr cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of goji berries
  • 1 tablespoon of sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of shredded coconut

I think it’s simple enough and  you need 2 minutes to prepare it.

It is a great breakfast, it has lot’s of protein from the cottage cheese, healthy fats from the seeds and some complex carbs from the berries.

Have a wonderful week! :*

Love pancakes

PhotoGrid_1385987377025bbHello everybody!

Look what I just made. Yes you guessed it, it’s pancake. I really love pancakes, but this one is adorable. I would eat almost everything that has a heart shape, well…..almost :))

It’s a very simple recipe, but I tell you it is delicious, healthy, low calorie, low fat, and it doesn’t contain flour or milk.

Here are the ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 banana
  • 1 tbs of shredded coconut
  • 1ts of cinnamon

And that’s it. You can add some honey or any kind of natural sweetener if you like, but the bananas are sweet enough, so it’s your choice.  Just mix the ingredients in a blender and fry them on a low heat. I have a great non sticky pan that doesn’t need any oil for cooking, but you can add 1 tbs of coconut oil.

I told you it’s easy 🙂

Good appetite! Enjoy your pancakes!

Have a pleasant day! :*

Spicy buckwheat veggie risotto

IMAG4805_1best)Hello everybody!

Here is a great Indian spicy recipe. I adore spicy food, so this one is one of my favourites.

The ingredient list:

  • 1 cup buckwheat soaked overnight
  • 1 onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 clove onion
  • some capers
  • 2 tbsp  of coconut oil
  • Thai curry paste
  • salt

Heat some coconut oil in a pan, add the onions, fry it slowly for about 3-4 minutes than add the carrot and the peppers. After 5 minutes add the minced garlic and let it cook for about 10 more minutes.

When the vegetables have softened add the buckwheat and turn on the heat. The buckwheat  will  now begin to slightly fry, so keep stirring it.

Add a little coconut milk and keep stirring, add a tablespoon of Thai curry paste and salt. Add some more coconut milk and just a little water. Let it boil for 10-15 minutes on a low heat.

When it’s ready add the capers and you excellent meal is ready!

I hope you enjoy this recipe, try it out and tell me how you did.

Have a wonderful day! See you soon!
