My favourite Chia Parafait | Il Mio Pudding di Chia Preferito

My Favourite Chia Parfait :

I love Chia pudding because it keeps me full for 4-5 hours which is perfect when I need a nourishing breakfast and I know I will have to keep on going until lunch time. The recipe I’m sharing with you today is quite easy and you can prepare in the evening and leave it in the fridge overnight. For this recipe I used a good amount of cinnamon that can really help to balance blood sugar levels, it is also loaded with antioxidants and it helps the body to fight infections and repair tissue damages.

Meri’s Nocciolata | La Nocciolata di Meri

Meri’s Nocciolata :

I have been working on this recipe for the past few weeks and now, that I am finally happy with the result, I’m going to share it with you. My Nocciolata is a lighter and healthier version of the classic Nutella and it is super delicious on its own or spread it on gluten-free toast and crackers. The main ingredient of my Nocciolata are organic hazelnuts, which are a great source of vitamin E and B and minerals such as: iron, calcium and potassium.

Banana and Cacao Smoothie | Frullato di Banana e Cacao

Banana and Cacao Smoothie :

Now that the weather is getting colder I prefer to nourish myself with cozy and sweet meals like my Warm Berry Porridge. But sometimes I wake up later than usual and I have to prepare a quick breakfast before running to work or to school. I simply love this banana and cacao smoothie because it has a very “chocolatey” taste, sometimes I even prepare it in the afternoon when I need a quick and healthy snack. I added also some almond butter which is a wonderful source of plant-based protein and vitamin E, that will make your skin glow.

Cinnamon Cashew Milk | Latte di Anacardi alla Cannella

Cinnamon Cashew Milk: 

Cashew milk is my favourite plant-based milk and I like to use it basically everywhere. I add it to my morning smoothie, to my healthy and vegan sweet treats or to my porridge. This recipe is super tasty and very easy to prepare as you don’t have to drain it like classic almond milk. Cashew nuts are really good for you as they have a very low Glycemic Index and they are a super good source of copper and magnesium.

Warm Berry Porridge | Porridge ai Frutti Rossi

Warm Berry Porridge:
In London, the porridge season has officially started. Even if I truly love to have a fresh smoothie in the morning, when the weather gets colder and the sky is grey, I’ll rather have a warm and cozy porridge packed with vitamins and minerals. For this porridge I normally use blueberries, raspberries and blackberries mixed together. Berries are a very good source of vitamin C, that will boost your Immune System.

Healthy Granola | La Granola di Meri

Healthy Granola :

I normally like to have Porridge for breakfast, I love to wake up early in the morning and prepare it while sipping my cup of Espresso. Now that the weather is super warm, I’ll rather have a fresh smoothie or my home made Granola with yoghurt and honey. My Granola is made with nuts and seeds. Nuts and Seeds are a good source of plant-based protein that will make you feel satisfied and fullfilled.

Pre-Workout Smoothie | Frullato Pre-Allenamento

Pre-workout Smoothie :

 

I really enjoy a good workout early in the morning. I usually go for a spin or pilates class or for a jog in the park, it makes me feel very good and energised for the entire day. In winter I normally prepare a good porridge before my workout but since the weather has been so nice I switch to fresh and easy smoothies. For this smoothie I added spinach as it is rich in iron, vitamin K, vitamin A, calcium and potassium. Spinach can really improve the quality of our blood and our vitality.

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.
