• Panzanella

    STALE BREAD SHOULD NEVER GO TO WASTE AGAIN! Panzanella is a Tuscan summer specialty based on bread and tomatoes – and it’s absolutely delicious! It’s a very healthy meal, full of fresh ingredients, low in calories and rich in nutrients. Just the process of making it will make you feel like an Italian God/ess, as the aromas and colors fill the plate. I’ve found inspiration for this recipe in the River Cottage VEG Cookbook by a man with a very complicated last name, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

  • Tasty tacos with veggies, feta and minced beef

    Tacos can be as nutritious or as bad for you as you make them. Personally, I think that just because something is ‘bad for you’ in its original form doesn’t mean you have to stop loving it all together – it just means you can find a healthier alternative and still enjoy! These tasty tacos are perfect for a casual dinner with friends or a fun family meal (with kids), and they are also super healthy. P.s. you could also make this recipe using tortilla wraps but, unless you are making your own tortilla wraps, opt for taco shells because store bought tortilla wraps are full of conservatives, artificial flavors…

  • School Lunches for Kids // INFO + TIPS + RECIPES

    A FRIEND OF MINE IS MOM OF THREE. She asked me if I could research what would be good school lunches for kids.

  • Taco Time

    Store bought taco shells consist of corn flour, water and salt, whereas store bought tortillas usually contain all sorts of flavor additives, conservatives and colourings.

Here’s a recipe for delicious and super healthy tacos that are done in literally 15 minutes! They make a quick weeknight dinner that is full with a variety of nutrients and low on fat. All in all, this makes a perfectly balanced and satisfying meal. If you cannot buy all ingredients organic, try to get organic beef, tomatoes and lettuce…

  • Cherry tomato, spinach & mushroom pasta

    The key to making this recipe work is using very flavourful cherry tomatoes (preferably organic). My tip for figuring out whether a tomato is full of flavor when you are buying is to smell.. yes, smell.. the tomato. If it smells like nothing, that’s probably exactly what it will taste like. If it makes your sensory nerves tingle with pleasure (ie. if it smells like tomato), it will generally taste well too! As for the rest of the recipe, making it is a piece of cake. However, this meal comes with huge benefits. It contains a good portion of vegetables, cooked and raw, and is low in fat, low in…
