I used also Chia seeds, which is a real Superfood, in fact it contains loads of minerals , such as : Manganese, Magnesium and Phosphorus.

I love smoothies, I have mine everyday for breakfast with different fresh and organic ingredients. I personally think that fruits like banana or mango can really make your smoothies outragously delicious.

This are the most delicious savory crepes that I have ever tasted. The recipe is very fast and easy but healthy and delicious. I like to serve it with hummus and sun dried tomatoes, but it works perfectly with parma-ham or bresaola too. My recipe is a lighter version of the classic salty crepes, made with seasonal products like spinach, that from March to June are just so tasty and crunchy, I like to add them everywhere. Spinach are naturally very rich in iron, magnesium and potassium and as many other vegetables are very low on calories. We need to include Iron in our diet because it is a very important mineral that helps the body to transport the oxygen through the organs.

Oat and Chocolate Cookies :
It was such an honor to participate to the fundraising event organized by the “Hult Rise Club” at Hult Business School yesterday. The “Hult Rise Club” organized a delicious breakfast to support the Saath Foundation, which helps children in need. I have to admit that I didn’t expect such a success, but almost everyone loved my vegan, gluten free cookies. Matteo, one of my dearest friend, said that the taste of my cookies reminded to him of his childhood and his grandma’s delicious biscuits. This simply made me feel super happy, because I felt the same way about it and I wanted to recreate my mom’s traditional recipe.
I used loads of almond in this recipe because they are naturally full of goodness. In fact, almonds are rich in flavonoids and vitamin E that combined can reduce the risk of heart diseases and it can really lower the blood sugar and insulin level after meals. In addition the high content of vitamin E can really help to nourish the skin and protect it from UV’s damages.

Coconut Bread with Chocolate Chips:
This is simply the perfect recipe to prepare during the weekend. I love to wake up on Sunday mornings and have my coconut bread with hazelnut spread. It’s just the perfect way to wake up and then maybe go for a walk at the park or to the flower market. I prepared it the first time for a typical family style Sunday brunch, since all my family loved it I decided to share it with and I hope you will find it pretty amazing too. I normally use buckwheat flour in my sweet treats because it is gluten free and it contains many vitamins and minerals. In fact buckwheat is rich in phosphorus, copper and manganese that helps to stabilize blood sugar levels. In addition it contains vitamin C and Niacin that assists with healthy circulation and supports the nervous system.
