Peach and Apricot Crumble :
Crumble is one of my favourite desserts, because it’s made of just a few healthy ingredients and it is super easy to prepare. I had my first peach crumble when I was a kid in a restaurant called Pinnacle Peak (California), and I felt in love with it. Unfortunately, in Europe you can only find very unhealthy crumbles made with white sugar and white flour. My version is made with simple and fresh ingredients that will nourish your body and make you feel satisfied.

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.

The Easiest Lentil Salad :
This is one of my favourite fast and easy recipe. I normally prepare it when I travel and I don’t want to eat airplane food, which is full of preservatives and not very tasty. Lentils are very rich in soluble fiber that can really help to improve the digestive system and to lower cholesterol levels. In addition lentils are also a very good alternative to animal products, as they are a very good source of plant-based proteins.

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.

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 :
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.

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.

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.
