My Adventures in Costa Rica | Le mie Avventure in Costa Rica

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.

Girls’ Night In | La Cena Perfetta tra Amiche

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.

You are most probably wondering why coconut oil is a basic ingredient in my recipes, especially in my soups, sweet treats and snacks. Coconut Oil has numerous properties, such as : saturated fats, unsaturated fatty acids; vitamin E; vitamin K and iron.

The unsaturated fats in coconut oil differs  from others and more in general plant-based ingredients are totally different from animal-based unsaturated fats that can be really harmful for your body.

One of the most important benefits of coconut oil is its content of lauric acid and other medium chain triglycerides that can really help the body to eliminate harmful bacteria, fight the signs of aging and most importantly it helps the body to absorb vital nutrients and minerals.

The Benefits of Avocado | Le Proprietà dell’ Avocado

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”  !!!
