Delicious, fresh and creamy homemade almond milk. Almond milk has a delicious soft taste and is a fabulous alternative whether you are vegan or sensitive to cow milk.
And there are many more health benefits of almond milk: It contains only 60 kcal per cup, which is only half of what is in reduced fat milk and there’s no cholesterol or saturated fat in almond milk. It also contains 30% of the recommended daily amount of calcium as 25% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin D, keeping your bones and teeth strong and reducing the risk of arthritis.
Unfortunately as with so many products in the supermarket I found it really difficult, not to say impossible, to find an almond milk without preservatives or any other additives. So I decided “hey scrap it, I do my own”! I did some research and found out that it’s so much simpler to make your own almond milk than I thought!
Grilled Chicken, sliced zucchini, red bell peppers and carrots mixed with Dijon mustard and wrapped in a crispy green roman lettuce. A low carb guiltless indulge!
There is something so cozy and comforting about eating your food with the hands. I love all kind of wraps and substituting a white bread wrap with a healthy juicy lettuce came out as being an absolutely great idea! It’s like eating your favorite salad with the hands.
This is easy to make ahead for lunch on the go and perfect for Low Carb, Gluten Free and Paleo diets. You can use any kinds of fillings, tomatoes, onions or cucumbers and for a vegan version you can simply use grilled tofu instead of chicken.
The perfect healthy and simple meal for a meatless Monday. The beans and broccoli are a great source of protein especially for those of you who are on a vegan diet. This meal will provide you with 30g of protein per serving, which is as much as a 150g beef steak! Click Here To See The Full Recipe
This week I would like to celebrate grapes as my food of the week! Grapes have such a unique texture and sweet flavor, I love them as a snack, dessert or addition to my fruit and vegetable salads.
Grapes aren’t low in calories compared to other fruits, they contain 104 kcal per 1 cup serving, but are rich in vitamin K, Vitamin B2 and copper. They are also high in water content (70ml per cup), which is great for your body hydration. Grapes also contain powerful antioxidants known as polyphenols, which may prevent many types of cancer.
My tips for you to incorporate grapes into your diet:
and here my favorite recipes with grapes:
Almond coated Tilapia filets on a bed of lemony kale with tomatoes and spiced with mediterranean herbs. A fresh and flavorful way to enjoy the “Fishy Friday” and quick enough for a busy weeknight!
This delicious meal contains 40g of protein per serving, omega-6 fatty acids and due to the kale loads of vitamin A, C and K. The recipe is suitable for gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and low-carb diet and makes a perfect Paleo dinner.
I made this delicious smoothie the other day, when I was badly craving for something sweet. And this smoothie is so sweet, probably the sweetest smoothie I ever did!
This workout is absolutely amazing, it attacks your cardio, your abs and your butt. I took some inspiration from a recent crossfit workout of the day, which I slightly modified and completed with a little butt workout.
It’s important that you first do a warm up on a tread mill, spinning bike or whatever you prefer. Then you start with the main crossfit inspired part which tackles every part of your body and brings your heart rate up, followed by a short and sweet butt routine. In case you are not familiar with the exercises, here a little link library on how these workouts look like:
DO NOT forget the stretching after your workout. If you need inspiration or a stretching routine, check out my blogpost: Let’s Stretch.
Grilled Beef burgers on sauerkraut topped with Dijon mustard and served with lemony cooked asparagus spears. This was my last weeks favorite lunch and I can say it is a real lunch of champions!
During the working week I’m always looking for something very simple and effortless to prepare, but still properly filling as I can be a nightmare when I get hungry. You can also call it HANGRY. So I’m always in need of something protein loaded that I can quickly put together and ideally place in a Tupperware and take with me. The recipe below is calculated for one serving, but you can easily add it up to as many servings as you like. I cooked this time 4 such meals and took one everyday to the office.
This meal is so hearty, tasty and good and in addition to that it’s grain-free, diary-free, gluten-free, low-carb and paleo-friendly.
This is one of my favorite Veggie Meals: Sautéd cauliflower, broccoli, tomatoes, carrots, beans and roasted pumpkin seeds. Lean but yet filling!
