A Super Food Cocktail That Makes You Look Good #HealthyFridays

A Super Food Cocktail That Is Addicting Have you ever wondered if there is a healthy food that makes you feel good without a lot of calories? A healthy food concoction that you can drink several times a day? Something you would even crave on a daily basis.  It is similar to a smoothie or should I say Froothie (that's my version of a super Food Cocktail). Which I explain in a while. A smoothie is around for a while and I have always enjoyed them tremendously. I also used to use a juicer on a regular basis until I got tired of throwing all the good pulp away. On the other hand my experience … [Read more...]

Mama’s Organic Egg Spinach Power Sandwich #HealthyFridays

Welcome to my first #HealthyFriday post. As you probably have realized I'm gearing up my blog towards natural healthy foods and recipes with emphasis on organic ingredients. In short it's all about the whole foods experience. Don't get me wrong I do enjoy other foods like desserts and cakes, which I will still post here and there. However, the trend to healthy foods is the only way (in my opinion) to stay sane and healthy in this hectic technology driven world. We are surrounded by heavily processed foods, that are not healthy at all. In my upcoming posts I will get more into the myth or truth … [Read more...]

A Lovely Ice Cream Cookie for Valentine’s Day

I love the combination of blueberry, coconut and vanilla. You probably have seen this combination in my blueberry & vanilla soy milk oatmeal post. For this dessert I warmed up blueberries with cream of coconut and served it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream served on a cookie.  The cookie's ingredients support this dessert with flavors of coconut,  vanilla and chocolate chips. Topped with a thin slice of banana and chocolate shavings makes this dessert a very simple yet tasty treat for any occasion. A Quick Journey into the History of Valentine's Day As Valentine's day is upon us we … [Read more...]

What is Comfort Food and Why Do We Love It So Much?

  A Soup Made for a Blizzard We just made it through one of the worst storms the American east coast has ever seen. That was in October of 2012. And now this blizzard that brought us more than a 2 feet of snow. I think that calls for some serious comfort food. The famous green split pea soup. A comfort soup made for cold and snowed in days. Luckily we didn't lose power but others where not so lucky. I can't think of another storm destroying our house it's too nerve wrecking. Even month after the Hurricane left us we are still in renovation mode. For those of you who missed my Hurricane … [Read more...]

A Messy Bowl of Oatmeal with Blueberries

Eating healthy is easier said than done. Almost every day I think about to diversify my diet, yet I hardly do something about it. My problem is; I love the good old wholesome bread with lots of grains and fibers. Although there is nothing wrong with that I just have to eat more veggies and fruits. With a busy job all that goes up into smoke and by the end of the day all I have eaten was my breakfast and a lousy snack. Does that sound familiar or am I the only one struggling to eat better? A Bowl of Oatmeal Everyday Well my New Year’s resolution is among a few other things to eat … [Read more...]

Organic Multi-Grain Bread

Every so often I have to bake my own multi-grain bread. I just don't like the bread you get in the supermarket. I have a habit of reading the ingredients on the back of almost anything I buy including bread, and if I see words I can't even pronounce I will put it right back in the shelf. I know it's weird, but that's me. There are only a handful of bakeries where I like the bread and they are too far away so I bake it myself. I rarely bake white bread and if I do, it's because my kids are bagging me to do it. Otherwise I prefer organic multi-grain bread or whole wheat bread. The reason why I … [Read more...]
