Scrambled Eggs in a Lettuce Nest

Scrambled Eggs in a Lettuce Nest

Scrambled eggs with red bell pepper and onions on lettuce. I made this for lunch the other day when I came home from the gym, starving and not patient enough to invest any time in proper cooking. So I made this and I fell in love with this dish! It’s so simple yet tasty!

Homemade Almond Milk

Homemade Almond Milk

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.

Homemade Almond Milk

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!

Food of the Week: Grapes

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:

  • Slice grapes and add them to a salad
  • Use grapes to top your oatmeal
  • Freeze grapes and enjoy as a snack during hot summer days
  • Take a small plastic box with grapes to work/school for a healthy snack and to satisfy your sweet tooth

and here my favorite recipes with grapes:
