If you like oats and nuts this is for you: Easy homemade power granola for breakfast. First of all what I like most about this recipe is the irresistible smell all around the apartment while baking it and of course – the strength and energy it provides me with! My granola mixtures normally contain lots of power foods [ like goji berry, chia or flax seeds ] you could either add more of these or replace or skip any of the ingredients. There’s no danger in making anything wrong with this recipe, that’s the beauty! So far every batch turn out differently – and it’s always been tasty! So absolutely no need to stick to my ingredients list, see it more as an inspiration and follow YOUR flow 🙂
Kale and cocktail, kale and pasta, kale and bread…. kale does never fail! Jap, this is my motto – at least during wintery months when this frizzy green is in season. In order not to miss any chance of serving this veggie I figured out ways and dishes to seduce even non-kale-lovers 😉 And this proved to work perfectly with kale chips plus alcohol or kale & basil pesto plus pasta. The basil and lime give an appealing fresh and smooth flavor to the pesto. Another insider tip: Toast the kale slightly for delicious roasty flavors in your pesto. Of course you’re absolutely fine using raw kale as well. Anyways, give it a go and get the following ingredients for 2 generous pasta & pesto portions:
Chia pudding has been my latest addiction: breakfast, snack, desert, repeat. BUT careful – the recommended daily ration is 25 g chia seeds, so sometimes I have to force myself not to eat too much of it in one day. Well, if you don’t overdue it, chia seeds are very healthy. They have become one of the most popular superfoods in the health community. Tiny seeds packed with all the goodness such as: omega-3 oils, antioxidants, protein and more. Plus a whole lot of energy and boosting power! [ Yes, I know why it’s been my breakfast, snack and desert ] I’d say there are worse addictions than this one 😉 go and make yourself addicted too! Mix it in the evening to have it ready for your breakfast the next morning. For 4 jars/portions you need:
I am slowly but surely realizing that my days in Switzerland are counted and I literally can’t get enough of my favorite winter foods. Everything will soon and abruptly be replaced with loads of tapas and ice cream in Barcelona [ which is not too bad either – I’m not complaining ]. So this super quick and easy creamy plant-based soup bursting with vitamin A and other goodness made my last 3 evenings! [ And there’s more for tomorrow, yuumm! ] Its gingery-sweet taste combined with crispy kale chips is just irresistible! And hey: everything is prepared in approx. 30 minutes, including the kale chips [ which you should NOT leave out!! ] Bon appetite!
