Good evening, hope you are doing well!

Today the weather was pretty gloomy and I was feeling tired, so I decided on making a sweet potato soup. This soup is perfect if you want some warm comfort food, that will fill you up. You could make this for a friends gathering, family dinner or just for a pick me up. It is also perfect for students, since you could make a big batch and keep it in the fridge for lunch/dinner during the week.

All you will need is two medium size sweet potatoes, two to three regular potatoes, one onion, two cloves of garlic, four carrots and vegetables broth. You can obviously adjust the amount of vegetables to the amount that you desire. All you have to do is cut the vegetables and boil them in the broth until they are soft. The you mix them up until the soup is smooth. I made some potato dippers/chips on the side and baked cherry tomatoes. The chips are optional, but I made them in the oven with some olive oil, rosemary, salt and pepper.

Hope you try the recipe and that you like it!

Good morning!

Hope everyone is doing fine. Today I have a recipe on a smoothie “bowl” that is perfect for breakfast. You can choose to just make a regular smoothie or a smoothie bowl as I did.

All you are going to need for the smoothie is: frozen berries, liquid of choice (I used orange juice, but water is fine), oats (optional), chia seeds and flax seeds. If you choose to make the smoothie bowl you will need fresh berries, coconut and peanut butter. Nuts and muesli are great toppings as well. All you will need to do is put the fresh berries, chia and flax seeds, oats and your liquid of choice in the blender and blend away until it is smooth. Then you can choose to drink it or put it in a bowl. If you put it in a bowl you can put some fresh berries, some peanut butter or whatever topping you would like, and enjoy it. Hope you like this recipe and try it out. Have a nice day!

Good morning, or rather good afternoon!

Today I have a delicious recipe for banana pancakes. They are super easy and quick to make, and very nutritious. All you are going to need is one smashed banana, some oats, soy milk or whatever milk of your choice, chia seeds, flax seeds, shredded coconut meet, cinnamon and some coconut oil for panfrying the pancakes. All you have to do is add the dry ingredients to the wet, and add little by little until the pancake batter is perfect! These pancakes are perfect for after working out since they have both oatmeal and banana, which will keep you full all day. Chia seeds and flaxseed are very healthy since they both contain a high amount of iron, omega 3, high in vitamin and minerals and great source of protein. Hope you enjoy the recipe, and try it yourself! Have a nice weekend!

Hello again!

Today I want to show you a recipe that is super easy to make, especially now that Christmas is around the corner. I personally know it is hard staying healthy during the holidays, but this recipe is both healthy and easy to make. I love tortilla raps and “tacos”, and wanted to create it with an Italian twist, so I made a salsa di pomodoro with bell peppers, and then added rice, fresh tomato and avocado. I would recommend adding beans for extra protein, and you could add tofu, but I did not have that.

All you need is:

  • Passata di pomodoro
  • Bell peppers
  • Onion
  • Tomatoes
  • Avocado
  • Tortilla wraps 

First step is to make the tomato sauce. Sautee the onions and the bell peppers in olive oil, then add the tomato puree/sauce. Then add spices of choice. I personally add little bit of salt and pepper, and a pinch of sugar. Secondly boil the rice, and mix the sauce and rice. Furthermore, warm the wraps and add the tomatoes and avocado. I personally make more sauce and rice, so that I can make more during the week. A good tip is to use the tomato sauce for a pasta dish. Hope you like the recipe, and enjoy!

Did you know that 40% of the world’s land surface is usedfor the purpose of feeding all 7 billion of us? And did you know that 30% ofthe world’s total ice- free surface is used not to raise grains, fruits andvegetables that are directly fed to human beings, but to support the chickens,pigs and cattle that we eventually eat. You may think you live on a planet, but in reality you live on a gigantic farm.

Livestock production contributes to 40% of globalagricultural gross domestic product, which provides income for more than 1.3billion people and uses one-third of the world’s fresh water. There may not beanother human activity that has a bigger impact on the planet.

Some facts about meat and the environment:

  • 51% or more of global greenhouse-gas emission is caused by animal agriculture, according to a report published by theWorldwatch Institute
  • 2,400 gallons of water are used to produce 1pound of beef, whilst 1 pound of tofu requires 244 gallons of water
  • By going vegan/plant based/ vegetarian, oneperson can approximately save 219,000 gallons of water a year.
  • ·It takes almost 20 times less land to feedsomeone on a plant-based diet than it does to feed a meat-eater since the cropsare consumed directly instead of being used to feed animals.
  • It takes 10 pounds of grain to produce just 1pound of meat
  • In the US alone 56 million acres are used togrow feed for animals, while only 4 million acres to produce plants for humansto eat.

If you are interested and want to read more information on this important matter, please go on Peta’s official site, or search “meat industry and pollution” on google. You will not regret it.
