Inspiration: Raspberry banana bread that even banana haters like

Inspiration: Raspberry Banana breadQuite a strange title for this blogpost isn’t it? But that is exactly what this banana bread does: it makes banana haters eat banana. Somehow I never liked the taste of banana, as a child andΒ  as an adult still. It doesn’t matter if the banana is baked, in a smoothie, cake, or even artificial like in candy, if I taste banana, I don’t like it. Because I really want to eat bananas for their healthy benefits, I have tried to eat banana in all kinds of foods to see if there was a way I would like it, but no succes. Untill now! Lees verder

Recipe: Cashew-date balls

image

I have seen so many recipes for this thing called ‘bliss balls’ (quite a strange name if you ask me). I do like the idea of making something healthy and sweet, as I am a sweet-tooth but at the same time I am conscious of what I eat and I don’t always want to stuff my body with a truckload of sugar. As I do this often enough with all the baking I do, I felt I could use some balance. So i looked up healthy snacks and this ‘bliss balls’ thing came up very frequently. Most of the times they involved oats or almonds, but that was not quite what i had on my mind. I wanted to try something else and because I always love cashews I decided to put them in the mix. I know cashews are not the healthiest nuts I could choose, but as this would still be a snack, I figured this was okay.

Inspiration: 10 times fruit in your oatmeal (the realistic way)

image

I’m seeing the most amazing photos of jaw dropping breakfast bowls with uncountable kinds of ingredients on Instagram every day. A lot of different fruits, nuts, superfoods, sprinkles, colors and whatnot are added in these breakfasts. Everything is perfectly cut and nicely shape and arranged in layers and patterns.The pictures alone are mouthwatering pieces of art. But realisticly, as much as I want it to, my breakfast almost never looks as great, not even close (even while it has the same ingredients sometimes). Simply because I don’t have the time to cut fruit in a creative way, or puff some rice or amaranth every day. And if it is very early, I don’t even care how my oatmeal looks, as long as it tastes goodThis is why I decided to share 10 of my regular, ready in 2 minutes oatmeal and fruit breakfasts. Some still look ok, others plain boring, but most important is how they tasted. I really liked all of these combinations.

Background: Superfoods: are they that super and if they are, what is super about them?

Superfood

Superfoods seem to be the food hype that is currently going on. A lot of people added these food items to their diet in the last few years. You can buy them everywhere now, even at stores that normally don’t sell groceries, but they are quite expensive. Are they worth their price? Are they really that beneficial to your body or is it all just a marketing trick to make people buy these products. Do you really need to add them to your diet or are the regular healthy food items enough. I did some research on the internet about this and I would like to share my findings with you.
