Happy World Nutella Day to all Nutella lovers! That’s right, today isn’t just like any other day. It is World Nutella Day! On this annual holiday millions of Nutella fans across the world celebrate their love for the famous chocolate-hazelnut spread. So spread a thick layer of Nutella on a slice of bread or grab a spoon and eat Nutella straight out of the jar. Either way, today you don’t have to feel quilty about eating too much Nutella. In honor to celebrate World Nutella Day I have a delicious recipe for Nutella Puff Pastry Hearts that I would like to share with you. This recipe only requires three ingredients and includes warm puff pastry and melty Nutella. Hmmm, that sounds like the perfect winter comfort food to me!
If you are looking for a last minute Christmas dessert, you should really try my White Chocolate Cheesecake. Cheesecakes are known for being very rich so I added raspberries on top of this cheesecake to break the richness of this dessert a little bit. Therefore this white chocolate cheesecake has the perfect balance of sweet, sour ánd creaminess. Since it’s a no bake recipe you don’t even have to pop this cheesecake in the oven. A couple of hours in the fridge so the cheesecake can set is all that is left to do after prepping this easy No-Bake White Chocolate Cheesecake.
Remember how your mom used to stuff you with oranges whenever you were having a cold? It’s a fact that oranges are rich in vitamin C and that vitamin C supports the immune system. Still it hasn’t been scientifically proven that vitamin C can help prevent a cold or shorten its duration. It does have many other health benefits though. Since our body isn’t able to produce vitamin C on its own, it’s important to include foods that are high vitamin C into our daily diet. Yes, we need to consume vitamin C everyday since the vitamin can not be stored. If you’re having trouble eating your daily dose of vitamin C, try drinking it. Today I’m sharing a carrot grapefruit smoothie with ginger and turmeric that is loaded with vitamin C. Oh, and this smoothie can help you lose some extra weight too!
Brrr, you can definitely tell that it is officially fall season now. I don’t know about you guys but I rather stay home cuddling under the blankets than go out. Movie nights are my favorite during fall -and winter season. However, those movie nights often lead to a lot more snacking than usual. Snacking is fine but not if you end up eating a whole bag of chips by yourself. So I’ve been doing a lot of research on which snacks are healthy but still tasty enough to eat during a movie. As a result of this I went to our local market, bought some veggies and made my own vegetable chips. Vegetable chips are a healthy alternative for the traditional chips. No, not the ones you can buy in the supermarket that are just loaded with salt. I’m talking about homemade vegetable chips.
When the sun is shining we all rather be outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. Spending hours in the kitchen to prepare dinner is such a waste of your summer. A fresh and filling salad is just what you need on a hot summer day like today. It’s healthy, light and easy to prepare. I can assure you that this salad will leave you feel full. Even my man felt satisfied after eating this salad and he is used to eating a lot! He actually said that he wanted to eat this salad a lot more often. Cause the combination of the sweet potato, grilled chicken and avocado is just delicious. And when you add the fresh dressing, it tastes even better!
One of the biggest challenges when eating healthy is to treat yourself while still sticking to your diet. Although some of us can feel pleased after eating some veggies, others just need that something extra. Like something sweet! That’s why I came up with a recipe that fits perfectly into a healthy lifestyle: a Quark Trifle with Exotic Fruit. This snack contains both carbs and lots of protein so it works great as a post-workout snack!
To celebrate World Baking Day I’m sharing a delicious baking recipe with you today. If you’re a big fan of chocolate I have some exciting news for you. What if I told you that you can have chocolate cake for breakfast but still stick to your healthy diet? Sounds amazing, right? Chocolate Banana Bread is the answer! My version is not only incredibly moist and yummy, it also fits perfectly into a healthy lifestyle! A good slice of chocolate banana bread serves as the ideal afternoon snack to deal with those horrible sugar cravings. It will make you feel full and satisfied for a long time.
Goodmorning everyone! Never have the time to eat a proper breakfast in the morning? With a little preparation this won’t longer be a problem for you. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. After sleeping for eight hours, our body needs an energy boost to start the new day. Also, breakfast activates your body’s fat burning mode. If you’re struggling to lose weight, try having a nutritious breakfast from now on.
My mornings are also very hectic so I usually have my breakfast at my desk. Not the most ideal option, but better to have a deskfast than no breakfast at all, right? On weekdays I often have oats for breakfast. Oats are very healthy, rich in fibers and minerals which keep you satisfied for at least a few hours. You can eat this inexpensive superfood raw or cooked. I prefer to eat them raw because it takes less time to prepare. Overnight oatmeal is my absolute favorite oatmeal recipe! It’s super easy to prepare and it doesn’t require much cleaning up afterwards. So you can just get it out of the fridge in the morning before you rush to work. Eating oats regularly also has tons of health benefits.
Happy Valentine’s Day my darlings! What are your plans for tonight? Chances are big that you have planned an exciting evening with your love or maybe it’s just a normal Tuesday for you and you don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day at all. This year we’re also not doing anything special for Valentine’s Day. But I did receive a beautiful red rose with a big heart from my boyfriend. That really made my day. I think it’s adorable how he’s so thoughtful and always makes such an effort to make me feel special.
The plan is to watch a romantic comedy together and have some of these delicious truffles. If you’re still looking for a sweet treat for tonight, you should really try these Red Velvet Cake Truffles. Oh my god, these truffles are to die for. So sweet, so chewy and sooo yummy! I’m actually really proud of myself that I came up with this recipe since I don’t consider baking as one of my strongest points. But these turned out so well, I just had to share it with you all.
Today I have a delicious healthy smoothie recipe for you. This pink Raspberry Beet Smoothie will be a definite hit for your Valentine’s Day breakfast/lunch! You might not guess it from its cute appearance, but this smoothie actually contains vegetables and is loaded with antioxidants and vitamin C. And the great thing about it, is that you will only taste the sweetness of the fruit. If you’re struggling to eat your daily dose of vegetables, this might be the answer for you.
