Meri’s Adventures in Hawaii | Le Avventure di Meri alle Hawaii

Meri’s Adventures in Hawaii :

It’s finally time to share with you guys,  all the pictures of my trip to Hawaii, in this post I would like to show you all the amazing places that I have visited.

Hawaii is really a magical place, and if you have the chance to go there you really have to visit Kauai.

My friends and I spent 8 days around Big Islands and Kauai, both of them are really beautiful but Kauai is probably one of the most beautiful place I have ever visited in my life.

My Favourite Detox Smoothie | Il Frullato Disintossicante Di Meri

My Favourite Detox Smoothie:

Today I am going to share with you another recipe with persimmons, here in California their season is almost over and I used the last ones I had in my kitchen, to make this fresh and nourishing smoothie. I combined the super sweet taste of persimmons with the strong taste of turmeric. Turmeric has been used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine to fight infections and inflammations, turmeric is also a very potent antioxidant that can neutralise free radicals.

The Benefits of Persimmons:

I have noticed that I haven’t been updating the section dedicate to my favourite ingredients for quite a long time, therefore today I’m going to talk to you about persimmons. From now on I would like to dedicate one post every month to the benefits of my favourite seasonal ingredients. In the past few weeks I created different recipes with persimmons like my Persimmon Tarte, which is super easy and fun to make.

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burgers | Burgers di Patata Dolce e Fagioli

Black Beans and Sweet Potato Burgers:

When I was in New York this Summer I fell in love with By Chloe, a vegan restaurant founded by Chloe Coscarelli, here you can find a great  variety of delicious vegan burgers. My favourite one is “The Guac Burger” made with beans, avocado and sweet potato. This weekend I organised a vegan brunch with my girlfriends and I tried to remake it in my kitchen. My version is made with black beans and quinoa, which are both a great source of plant-based protein, and sweet potato, which is a great source of carbohydrates, therefore this recipe represents a nutritious and well balanced meal.

Meri’s Energy Bars | I Miei Quadratini Energetici

Energy Bars :

 

I came back from Costa Rica one week ago and I had to fly immediately to London to celebrate my graduation in International Business at Hult Business School. I promise that I am going to share with you a post dedicated to my adventures in Costa Rica very soon. It has been a truly amazing journey with my brothers, i simply loved eating fresh tropical fruits for breakfast and spending the day surfing amazing waves, but let’s leave all the details to the next post.

 While I was in London celebrating my graduation with my family, I had the chance to taste a super delicious energy bar in a little vegan restaurant in Notting Hill, I try to recreate it in my kitchen and here’s the recipe for you. It is made of nuts and seeds which are both a really good source of plant-based protein and gluten-free oats which are a really good source of carbs.

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.

The Benfits of Ginger | Le proprieta’ dello Zenzero

The Benefits of Ginger :

I am so excited to share with you another one of my favourite ingredients, I talked to you about how much I love using coconut oil, avocado or lemons in my kitchen, and  today I am going to tell you everything about ginger and how amazing it can be for your health

Ginger is a root from south-east Asia that have been used by the Chinese population for over 2,000 for its healing properties. It has also been a key plant in the Ayurvedic medicine and it was imported to the Roman empire over 1,500 years ago for its health benefits and culinary properties.

Spring Salad | Insalata Primaverile

Spring Greek Salad :

Last week I have been really busy with my final exams that I had no time to elaborate new creative recipes. I had to prepare very fast and easy meals while studying, and I decided to share with you one of my favourite quick salad, which is super easy to make yet so yummy. I used organic and healthy ingredients like butternut squash, which is very good for you because it is low in calories but it contains a large amount of dietary fiber. It is a good source of potassium and vitamin B6, which helps to boost the immune system.
