Barnett Valley Retreat And Farm:
Today I want to share with you a wonderful place that I have recently discovered through Airbnb Experiences. Moreover, last weekend I had the chance to visit a beautiful farm located near Sonoma County, more or less one hour by car from San Francisco.
The place is called Barnett Valley Retreat And Farm and for the three hours that I have spent there, I felt like at home in Italy. BVR Farm is a sort of Californian “Agriturismo” where you can stop to eat only what’s produced and grown in the farm.

I discovered Casaruci on Instagram a few months ago and I completely fell in love with their profile. Their photos are simply beautiful and their style is very chic and personal.

The Perfect Breakfast Pie:
I have never talked to you about my first true love: coffee. I simply adore the perfume of coffee early in the morning, just as much as I love its strong and intense taste. I know it’s not the healthiest drink ever, but I am Italian and espresso is part of our culture, it simply reminds me of home and the tradition of having a quick espresso in my favourite bar before going to school or work. So, two days ago I decided to combine my love for pies with my love for coffee et voilà here’s the recipe for my perfect breakfast pie. Caffeine it’s a very strong stimulant of the Central Nervous System and it can help to fight tiredness and promote focus, which is the reason why I really suggest you to have this cake for breakfast or after lunch but don’t serve it after dinner.

Last week, my lovely friend and photographer Christina, gave to me a big basket of organic persimmons from her boyfriend’s garden. Persimmon are my favourite Winter fruits as they are very sweet and juicy, therefore they are the perfect ingredient for cakes, compotes and smoothies. Persimmons are relatively high in calories, but very low in fat. These orange round fruits are also a really good source of Vitamins C, antioxidants and dietary fiber. I like to serve my Persimmons Cake for breakfast with a warm matcha tea or as a dessert combined with diary-free vanilla ice cream.

Meri’s Guide to LA:
Last weekend I had the chance to visit Los Angeles, which is located just 1 hour by plane from San Francisco. Los Angeles is probably the “healthiest” city in the US. In LA you can find plenty of restaurants serving plant-based and organic dishes, there are also many juice bars and yoga studios. Last weekend the weather was really nice and I went running every day with my brothers Giulio and Giacomo. If you have the chance to visit California then you have to go to LA and enjoy its amazing vibe.

Banana and Cacao Smoothie :
Now that the weather is getting colder I prefer to nourish myself with cozy and sweet meals like my Warm Berry Porridge. But sometimes I wake up later than usual and I have to prepare a quick breakfast before running to work or to school. I simply love this banana and cacao smoothie because it has a very “chocolatey” taste, sometimes I even prepare it in the afternoon when I need a quick and healthy snack. I added also some almond butter which is a wonderful source of plant-based protein and vitamin E, that will make your skin glow.
