The perfect breakfast smoothie :
I love smoothies, I have mine everyday for breakfast with different fresh and organic ingredients. I personally think that fruits like banana or mango can really make your smoothies outragously delicious. Normally I also add some home made granola (the recipe will be posted soon) or some quinoa flakes. The recipe I’m sharing with you today is made with a spoon of spirulina powder, spirulina it’s a real superfood. It is naturally rich in protein : 60 grams of protein in 100 gr of Spirulina powder, more than half a pound of chicken breast!!! Spirulina also contains calcium, magnesium , potassium , vitamin B and iron.

Daylesford Organic :
I am so excited to finally share with you one of my favourite restaurants in London. Today I will be talking to you about the cozy and delicious Daylesford Organic.

The organic and fresh products cooked and served in the restaurants are grown and daily delivered from their farm in Gloucestershire. You can buy most of their vegetables and fruits, diary products, bakery and so on… right on site from the two restaurants or from Selfridge, alternatively you can order online from the website Ocado.

Coconut Bread with Chocolate Chips:
This is simply the perfect recipe to prepare during the weekend. I love to wake up on Sunday mornings and have my coconut bread with hazelnut spread. It’s just the perfect way to wake up and then maybe go for a walk at the park or to the flower market. I prepared it the first time for a typical family style Sunday brunch, since all my family loved it I decided to share it with and I hope you will find it pretty amazing too. I normally use buckwheat flour in my sweet treats because it is gluten free and it contains many vitamins and minerals. In fact buckwheat is rich in phosphorus, copper and manganese that helps to stabilize blood sugar levels. In addition it contains vitamin C and Niacin that assists with healthy circulation and supports the nervous system.

I always make 6-12 of them during the weekend and I keep it in the fridge for about a week, trust me this bites are real lifesaver. I try to keep this recipe as simple as possible but still healthy and full of goodness. I used bee pollen because of its super good taste and its health benefits. It is in fact rich in proteins, amino acids, vitamins and folic acid. The large amount of protein in bee pollen provides you with a high boost of immediate energy, and its antibiotic-type properties can really help your body to fight viruses.

The Benefits of Avocado :
Avocado is my favorite fruit, I truly love it and I can literally have it everyday with my quinoa, salads, veggie noodles, breakfast smoothie or simply on brown toast in the morning. Avocado is also called the alligator pear because it has a pear shape and its rid is very similar to the skin of an alligator. This amazing berry comes from Latin America and it was first brought to Europe from the Spanish “Coinquistadores” !!!
