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.

Meri’s Guide to New York:

If you are a vegan, a vegetarian or simply a healthy freak like me, New York is the best place to go. You can find many different restaurant and bars all around Manhattan or Brooklyn.

Avo and Mozzarella Sticks | Spiedini di Mozzarella e Avocado

Avo and Mozzarella Sticks :

Whenever I invite friends over for dinner I don’t want to prepare just  vegan and super  healthy meals,  I try to always come up with new creative recipes for them. Most of my guests are not very  into healthy eating so I avoid serving “boring” salads or vegan dishes.  The recipe I’m sharing with you today is perfect as a delicious  starter, maybe followed by my healthy lentil burgers.

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.
