Quinoa avocado sushi

Who doesn’t love sushi? I think it’s one of the few meals you could wake me up for in the middle of the night. Although, it takes a little practice, but creating your own custom sushi can be such a fun and very rewarding activity. Last week I had a great time with a lovely friend while making some quinoa avocado sushi rolls.

Roasted eggplants with tahini- yoghurt dip and pomegranate seeds

Eggplant is very well liked in Mediterranean regions and it is often considered as’the king of the vegatables’, because of its versatily and great abilty to absorb the flavours that are added to it. Sadly, the vegatable is not half as popular in the US and Europa, probaly because many people dont’t  know how to prepare it. And when it is not cooked right, eggplant indeed doesn’t taste very nice. The most common complaints are that they are too tough, bitter and watery, but often, this can easily be resolved by salting the eggplant before cooking it. If you are one of those eggplant haters, let me convince you with this recipe! I think you are highly missing out on a very healthy, tasty and versatile food.

Baked sweet potato with cinnamon- peanutbutter

If I was forced to make a list of my top 5 most favorite foods, I would definitiely put sweet potato and peanutbutter on it. I never thought of combining them, but they truly are a match made in heaven. Sweet potatoes are such an amazing nutritional powerhouse and they offer a host of health benefits which far exceeds the nutrional value found in regular potatoes, for example they contain twice as much fiber. Not only are these orange- skinned root vegetables one of nature’s most unsurpassed sources of betacaroteen, they are also rich in vitamin C and E. These are all important antioxidants, which help to protect healthy cells from damage caused by free radicals and to strengthen your ability to help fight infection and disease.
