Lemon & Coconut Bars

Here I am with a new and super simple recipe. I’m always struggling to find nutritious and yummy snacks to keep me active during long working days. Sometimes, I like to have a few dates or walnuts or maybe even a yogurt with fruits. But this time I wanted to create something different yet easy to prepare and to carry around all day.

As you probably all know I moved to California almost two months ago.

Meri’s Guide to Los Angeles | La Guida di Meri a Los Angeles

Meri’s Guide to LA:

Last weekend I had the chance to visit Los Angeles, which is located just 1 hour by plane from San Francisco. Los Angeles is probably the “healthiest” city in the US. In LA you can find plenty of restaurants serving plant-based and organic dishes, there are also many juice bars and yoga studios. Last weekend the weather was really nice and I went running every day with my brothers Giulio and Giacomo. If you have the chance to visit California then you have to go to LA and enjoy its amazing vibe.

Salmon Burgers :

 

This is simply one of my favourite recipes. I normally prepare it when I have friends coming over for dinner and I want to serve something tasty, healthy and easy to prepare. I personally adore salmon, I don’t eat fish very often but when I do I always go for wild and organic options. Salmon is a very good source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids which can really help the body to balance insulin levels, and can really improve brain functions.

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.

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.

Healthy Mini Doughnuts | Mini Ciambelle Leggere

Healthy Mini Doughnuts:

This week I have been working on new creative recipes for you guys. Today I am going to share with you my healthy doughnuts. I tried this sweet treats for the first time at the Healthy Being Juicery in Jackson Hole (Wyoming, U.S.A) and I immediately felt in love with it. I tried to recreate it in my kitchen , and my favourite version of it is the one I am sharing with you today, made with coconut and raw cacao powder. I used cashew nuts because they are super healthy and delicious, cashew nuts contain the best fat ratio 1:2:1 for saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. These nuts are also a super good source of magnesium which helps to lower blood pressure and to fight muscle spasms and headaches.
