Healthy Brownies | Brownies Morbidi e Leggeri

Healthy Brownies:

I’m so happy to share with you one of my favourite recipes : gluten free and healthy brownies made with fresh organic ingredient. I truly love them, especially when combined with coconut or vanilla ice crea (mm so delicious !!! )

I prefer to use raw cocoa powder instead of cacao powder because it contains much more health benefits. In fact the big difference between raw caco powder and regular cocoa powder is that the first one is cold pressed, therefore it keeps all the living enxymines but it removes all the fats. Raw cacao powder is very rich in antioxidants and it contains loads of minerals, such as :iron, manganese, magnesium, potassium, calcium and zinc. In addition raw cacao powder can reduce blood pressure and it can reduce the risk to develop cardiovascular diseases and strokes

Healthy Carrot Cake | Torta di Carote Leggera

Carrot Cake:

I’m so excited to share with you the recipe for Meri’s healthy and delicious Carrot Cake made with fresh organic ingredients that you will love. I made this healthy version of a classic carrot cake for my brother’s friends and they all loved it, so I decided to share it with you and I hope you will love it too. I think is the perfect cake to prepare when you have friends or family coming over for dinner, maybe after my creamy broccoli and pea soup or my raw carrot noodles. Usually I like to sweeten my cakes or sweet treats with maple syrup because it has a sweet flavour, similar  to sugar, but a very low glycemic index. It contains also many vitamins such as : calcium, potassium, iron, manganese and zinc.

 

Meri’s Apple Pie | La Torta di Mele di Meri

Meri’s Apple Pie:

Today I want to share with you my signature apple pie. I love apple pies, seriously it’s my favorite treat. The  recipe that I’m sharing with you today is a healthy version of my grandma’s one. She used to prepare it for me and my brothers when we were kids and I just loved it, she normally used apples from her garden that made her pie even more delicious. Apples are so good for you because they are a good source of vitamins and minerals and they help to detoxify your liver!!!

Healthy Chocolate Mousse | Mousse Light di Cioccolato

Healthy Chocolate Mousse : 

My first “sweet treat” on this blog, is a very creamy chocolaty yet healthy mousse. Cacao is naturally rich in antioxidants, sulfur, magnesium, iron and theobromine, which is a stimulant that can treat depression. I use only raw cacao powder as it maintains all the nutrients because is made of cold pressed non-roasted cacao nibs.
