Stewed Rhubarb

19th August 2015

Rhubarb is to acid to eat it raw, it needs to be cooked with plenty of sugar.This recipe is very versatile and it tastes great on bread, yogurt, porridge or ice cream.

Cut the rhubarb in chunks and put it in a pan with sugar, I used soft brown sugar, some orange zest and slowly cook for 30 minutes turning occasionally. The rhubarb will melt so no need to blend it. Cool down before serving, keep it in the fridge and eat within a couple of days. I cooked 300gr of rhubarb and 250gr of soft brown sugar.

COMPOTA DE RUIBARBO

Ruibarbo é muito acido para comer cru, tem de ser cozinhado com bastante açúcar . esta receita é muito versátil e pode-se usar no pão, iogurte ou gelado.

Cortar o ruibarbo em pedaços e colocar num tacho com açúcar, eu usei açúcar mascavado  e um pouco de raspa de laranja, cozinhar em lume muito brando durante 30 minutos mexendo ocasionalmente. O ruibarbo vai-se desfazer por isso não é necessário triturar. Deixe arrefecer antes de servir , manter no frio e consumir dentro de uns dias.  Eu cozinhei 300gr de ruibarbo e 250gr de açúcar mascavado.

Papaya with strawberries and blueberries

20th July 2015

Summer breakfast doesn’t  get more colourful than this. Papaya,strawberries and blueberries  a delicious and fresh way to start the day !

Papaya is rich in vitamin C, fresh, ripe papaya is one of the fruits with the highest vitamin-C content more than oranges. Vitamin C has many important functions like immune booster, and anti-inflammatory action. It’s also a good source of vitamin A, vitamin A is required for maintaining healthy skin and is essential for healthy vision. Fresh papaya also contains a good amount of potassium and calcium and rich in many essential B-complex vitamins such as folic acid . Potassium helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure, calcium for healthy and strong bones, vitamin B plays an essential role on the metabolism, they are water-soluble, meaning that the body does not store them.

Porridge Linseed and Berries

8th February 2015

This breakfast is a super booster for the day, the porridge grains provide  a high amount of fibre, this helps to fill you up and control the appetite . It also contains a high amount of complex carbs, that slowly digest providing lasting energy . Adding the berries and the  seeds increases the fibre content.  Also it makes a perfect meal before or after work out, high in phosphorous which helps with energy production and muscle recovery .

Muesli and Apple Breakfast

26th January 2015

Muesli is a good source of fiber, it feels up and helps with  weight control and good source of antioxidants. For this recipe I used almond milk as it’s becoming very popular, it’s low in fat but high on energy, proteins, lipids and fiber and it doesn’t contain lactose . The nuts provide a great source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids . Apples are also  high in fiber and vitamin C.  Overall this a super filling breakfast that will keep you full for longer, it’s rich in nutrients but very low in calories . A super healthy way to start the day, enjoy !

Beetroot and Honey Greek Yogurt

9th October 2014

What do you like eating for breakfast ? I used to have toast and a cup of tea every single day but not any more, even though I still enjoy my toast and tea I’m also eating fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds early in the morning, so much better.

A good nutritious breakfast provides energy, gives more strength and improves concentration for the rest of the day, also helps to keep the weight in control, when eating the right nutrients in the morning the appetite will reduce throughout the day.

There are so many different ways to eat a quick and nutritious breakfast, so no excuses for not having one.

My suggestion today is beetroot with Greek honey yogurt and mixed seeds. I like beetroot because of it’s sweet earthy taste and the smooth texture. Beetroot is so nutritious, it contains antioxidant and anti inflammatory benefits, helps to detox and it’s high on folic acid, magnesium, potassium, vitamin C ,B6 and Iron so it makes super food for the morning.
