Girls’ Night In | La Cena Perfetta tra Amiche

Girls’ Night In  :

Yesterday evening I organised my first “Organic Meri’ dinner with my closest girlfriends. I really love my new flat, because it has a bright and spacious dining room and the most practical and comfy kitchen.  I decided to dedicate a blog post to our menu, because I  think that planning and organising a dinner is not very easy. When I invite friends or family to have dinner at mine, I always try to serve fresh and healthy dishes and make my guests feel satisfied and happy.

Raspberry Cookies | Biscotti ai Lamponi

Raspberry Cookies :

I’m so happy to share with you my new delicious and guilt-free recipe. I made these cookies yesterday for my friends and they loved it! We had a very nice mexican dinner followed by my healthy gluten-free sweet treat. These vegan cookies are made with raspberries that are very low in calories, but rich in fiber. Raspberries are also a really good source of antioxidants.

My Favorite Smoothie | Il mio Frullato Preferito

My favorite smoothie :

 

I know I have been quiet for the past two weeks but I went back home for Easter and I couldn’t cook as much as I wanted too. I came back to London  a few days ago, and I moved to a new flat, which is simply perfect! My new kitchen is much better than the old one and today I finally started to cook again.

The recipe that I am sharing with you is very simple, you can prepare it in the morning and have it on the way to the office or to school.  I like to eat my smoothies with a spoon rather than drinking it but you can add a little bit of water to my recipe and it becomes immediately more liquid.

This is seriously my favorite fast and easy smoothie, I used pineapple, which is a really good source of vitamins C and A. In addition a cup of pineapple contains calcium, magnesium, manganese and potassium.

 

Avo and Broccoli Quinoa Salad | Quinoa con Broccoli e Crema di Avocado

Avo and Broccoli Quinoa Salad :

I love to have quinoa for lunch, because it is a healthy and well-balanced meal. I personally prefer white quinoa but you can use also red or black quinoa, which is usually more crunchy. This recipe contains a good ammount of carbohydrates , proteins and healthy fats. I usually prepare it wen I’m travelling as it is very easy to carry and very satisfying too. Quinoa is a really good source of vitamins and minerals and it contains also the 9 essential amino acids that our body can’t produce, therefore it is a plant-based complete protein.

Healthy Easter Eggs | Uova di Cioccolata Sane e Leggere

Healthy Easter Eggs :

Today I am going to share with you a very special Easter recipe. These  Easter eggs are made with raw cacao powder and agave nectar. Agave is a plant that grows in South and Wester United States and Latin America. I used it because is an unprocessed sweetner with a very low glycemic index, therefore you won’t experience any sugar cravings after having my delicious and healthy chocolate eggs.
