Meri’s Nocciolata | La Nocciolata di Meri

Meri’s Nocciolata :

I have been working on this recipe for the past few weeks and now, that I am finally happy with the result, I’m going to share it with you. My Nocciolata is a lighter and healthier version of the classic Nutella and it is super delicious on its own or spread it on gluten-free toast and crackers. The main ingredient of my Nocciolata are organic hazelnuts, which are a great source of vitamin E and B and minerals such as: iron, calcium and potassium.

Cinnamon Cashew Milk: 

Cashew milk is my favourite plant-based milk and I like to use it basically everywhere. I add it to my morning smoothie, to my healthy and vegan sweet treats or to my porridge.

Quinoa and Pistachio Burgers | Polpette di Quinoa e Pistacchi

Quinoa and Pistachio Burgers:

I create this recipe by accident when I had 6 friends coming over for dinner. I wanted to prepare a quinoa salad with a vegan pesto made with pistachio nuts and basil leaves, but the quinoa was extremely sticky so I thought to turn it into burger patties. I love quinoa especially because it is a very good source of plant-based protein, vitamin B and magnesium. This super grain is also free from gluten, therefore it’s perfect if you have a sensibility to gluten or if you just want to avoid it.

Warm Berry Porridge | Porridge ai Frutti Rossi

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.

Meri’s Guide to San Francisco | La Mia Guida di San Francisco

Meri’s Guide to San Francisco:

San Francisco is one of the more cool, vibrant and beautiful city in America. What I love about San Francisco is the energy that you feel while walking around the city, as well as the calm and relax that you get from the Ocean and the wild nature just outside the city centre. In America, and especially in California you feel that nothing is impossible and that any good idea could work, which is why I would love to move to San Francisco very soon. During my last trip to the United States, I had the chance to visit both San Francisco and Berkeley and here’s the list of my favourite healthy spots.

Minty Quinoa Salad | Insalata di Quinoa e Menta Fresca

MInty Quinoa Salad:

You probably know that I love quinoa and that I like to mix it with fresh seasonal veggies. This time I decided to make a Summery version of a simple quinoa salad, with fennel and mint. Fennel is a very good source of iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc and vitamin K which can really improve bone health. If you suffer from digestive problems fennel is really good because of its high fiber content that helps to fight constipation and promotes regularity.

 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.
