Healthy Banana Bread

One of the things I love is transforming traditional cakes into healthier versions. Not only I feel less guilty eating them, but they’re also more delicious! For instance, this banana cake has become one of my family’s favorite sweet treats. On top of that, it is so super easy to cook. Basically, you just need to mix all the ingredients, which takes no more than 10-15 minutes and then put it in the oven for an hour or so. If you have been following me so far, you know that I don’t use complicated recipes. Life is busy, time is precious, and we should know how to make the best of it. Still, nourishing your body with home-cooked, nutritious food is an integral part of a healthy,...

Pumpkin Slices

Pumpkin is my number one favorite autumn/winter food. I can eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just use it as a snack at work or at uni.

Actually, this doesn’t really matter much, since both fruits...

Every country has its own preferred herbs, because different plants grow in different geographical territories, although nowadays you can buy any tea from any part of the world. Here I present some of the most famous teas, used around Europe nowadays to boost immunity and help in preventing or treating flus and viruses. Chamomile tea.  I put on first place this wonderful tea, because it is a personal favorite of mine. Chamomile is known mainly for its uses as a nervous system soother and a natural sleep aid. But it also has other immune-boosting properties – chamomile increases the production of specific white blood cells in the...

Whole-Wheat Pancakes

What a better way to start the weekend than with some super nutritional, healthy pancakes? Boost your mood and energy from the very morning with these whole-wheat pancakes: high in fiber and free of sugar, they are so sweet and delicious! The beauty of these pancakes is that you can make a bunch of those during the weekend and then eat them for a couple more days. This breakfast is a great way to crowd out the usual morning bagels or donuts – the whole-wheat pancakes are still flour-based, but are a much healthier option and are really easy to make. I start by mixing all dry ingredients: the flour and raising agents. Then I add the wet ingredients, mix everything with a fork and my batter is ready!...
