As you may know there’s a virus out there called Covid19, which literally shocked the world and also forced almost the entire population to stay locked-in alone or with family.
Even if being in lockdown is hard and stressful, I decided to invest my time during this quarantine to learn new things, more precisely I wante to be able to plant my own vegetable garden, plant my own berries and fresh flowers, learning new recipes (healthy and not so healthy), learning new types of workout out and read many new books.

Soft Coconut Ciambellone:
Ciambellone is the typical breakfast cake, at least in my family’s home in Italy. I love to prepare different types of ciambellone and enjoy it in the morning with a good coffee or a cup of green tea.

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.

My Adventures in Costa Rica:
Costa Rica is definitely one of the most beautiful countries I have ever visited. I loved every single part of it : the dangerous wildlife, the crazy waves, the exotic fruits for breakfast and even the rain showers at 5 pm. I had the chance to visit, with my brothers and their girlfriends, three different cities in 8 days. We started our trip from Santa Teresa, then we moved to the Arenal and finally we went to Dominical. My absolute favourite place was Santa Teresa for its amazing landscapes, delicious food and very engaging yoga classes.

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.

The Perfect Chia Pudding :
Today I am going to share with you my favourite fast and easy breakfast. This recipe is perfect because you can prepare it the night before and enjoy it in the morning when you need a fast and easy meal. I usually make it when I have class at 9 am or when I have to catch an early morning flight. I love to prepare also my own homemade almond milk, but you can simply buy it , just make sure it doesn’t have any added sugars. I used also Chia seeds, which is a real Superfood, in fact it contains loads of minerals , such as : Manganese, Magnesium and Phosphorus. It is also very low in calories but rich in fiber and protein. 28 grams of Chia seeds contain 11 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein.

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.
