A dinner to impress ;)

Hi again!

I will give you the recipes of easy dishes that will make you shine bright like a diamond with your friends, couple or family. These recipes are very simple and fast to make, and they are a mixed of vegetarian options, with some indulgencies, so no more wait and let’s gather all the ingredients now.


We will start with the Tabbouleh, this is a traditional lebanese vegetarian dish, but here I have modified very slightly the regular ingredients, so you will need:

  • 2 cups of Bulgur.
  • 4 cups of water.
  • 1/4 of a teaspoon of your preferred salt (I recommend hinmalayan salt).
  • a pinch of Cayenne Pepper.
  • a pinch of Turmeric.
  • 1/4 of a teaspoon of Persille.
  • 1/4 of a teaspoon of basil.
  • a pinch of black pepper.

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, and cover with a plastic foil aside to a room temperature for 30 minutes, until this has grown and has a good texture.

When the bulgur is ready, you will incorporate the following ingredients:

  • Chopped Mint.
  • Chopped Parsley.
  • Chopped Carrots.
  • Small cubes of Cherry tomatoes.
  • Dehydrated Cranberries, or natural Pomegranates.


Let’s continue with some Stuffed Bell Peppers, and this is the list of ingrediets:

  •  5 or 6 Bell peppers of different colours.
  • a box of Aroma mushrooms.
  • 1 Red onion, fully chopped.
  • a bag of mozzarella cheese (this can be replaced for a vegan version).
  • a pinch of Salt.
  • a pinch of Cayenne pepper.
  •  a pinch of Black pepper.



You must stuff the bell pepper with the chopped red onions, and aroma mushrooms, and the seal them in the top with the mozzarella cheese, as shown above.

At last, there cannot be a meal without a dessert, and this is the best part to finalize a good encounter with beloved ones, and enjoy the sweet moments.

Here are the ingredients for this easy and yummy Strawberry Parfait:


  • a bag of Oats cookies.
  • a bag of fresh Strawberries (you can also use raspberries or blueberries).
  • Marscapone cheese.

First, you need to mash the oats cookies, and take a glass of wine, or your favorite recipients for desserts, and make layers, and our first layer will be this one. then we will put a layer with marscapone cheese, and the last will be with small pieces of strawberries, and we repeat again the same types of layer until we reach the top of the glass. This looks beautiful, but also tastes yummy, without using tons of whipped cream or sugar.


I hope you like this helpful list of dishes for a spectacular dinner with beloved ones.

Be ready to impress and being congratulated for the amazing mix of flavours you will provide them!!!

Who said banana bread?


Hi again!

I am back after a while, being busy but not forgetting to share my recipe of a tasty and healthy banana bread.
Everyone has their preferences for breakfast, and I was one those which was very loyal to the oats with almond milk or greek yoghourt, raisins and other stuff, but lately I felt saturated of this type of breakfast, and by waking up so early to get ready to work, I need it to fuel my body with something much heavier, then I thought about the banana bread.

Since I have being having my breakfast with the banana bread, it feels totally different, my energy levels are boosted, and I am more satiated.

But enough of my breakfast, get all your ingredients ready, and let’s make some tasty and yummy banana bread now:


For the recipe, here is the list of ingredients with its variations:


  • 2 or 3 ripe bananas (depending on how much banana flavour you want)
  • 2 cups of oats (either rolled or already flour) or Spelt flour.
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda.
  • 2 eggs, or 2 Chia eggs or flax seeds (two tablespoons of chia or flax seeds seeds in a cup, plus 4 tablespoons of water).
  • Agave/Coconut sugar/ Stevia or any other favorite sweetener you have at your disposal, and you will add as much as you want. I use 1 tablespoon of agave.
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
  • A pinch of Cayenne pepper, Turmeric, Cinammon
  • You can add also berries (This is optional).

Vegetarian variation:

  • Follow all the steps listed above, but use regular eggs, instead of Chia eggs or Flax seeds.


Add the mixture into a mold, and put it in the over for 25 min at 175 degrees Celsius.

I must look like this; however, what you see below it was my invention, for instance, the one on top , I put some blueberry jam, and the below one was a mixture of banana with all types of berries ( It is NOT ice cream, as many thought).


After 25 min, I got these wonderful and tasty banana bread!!!

***Let me clarify that the bread at the right hand is not burnt, it is the blueberry jam on top which make it look like that, but I can garantee you, it was too good 😛


Hope you like it and enjoy making this easy and delicious banana bread- Energy at 100%

Healthy pancakes here!!!

Don’t you know what to have for breakfast on a lazy weekend???… Let me help you to resolve that worry with this post of my recipe for some super yummy vegan/ vegetarian pancakes!


Either you are vegan or vegetarian, here I will provide you all the substitutes you need to replace the ingredients that you must have.

So, let’s start!

As I enjoy being quite creative in the kitchen, I don’t follow recipes from A to Z, I always love to change or add ingredients, or make some modifications at last minute- depending on the mood 🙂

These vegan/vegetarian pancakes are very simple to make, and here I will give you the list of ingredients you need to have at hand as follows:

Vegan pancakes:

  • 1,5 cup of rolled oats (If you don’t have rolled oats, I recommend to use Spelt flour).
  • 1 ripe banana (For those who don’t like to incorporate banana, you can use 1 Chia seed egg- 1 tablespoon of chia seed, and two tablespoon of water in a glass, mix it and let it blend for 5 min, and you will get your Chia seed egg.)
  • 1/2 cup of almond/rice/soya/oats/coconut/hazelnut milk ( I prefer the almond milk for better taste, but if you don’t have milk, you can use water too.)

Another easy adaption for Vegan/Vegetarian pancakes:

  • 1 cup of Spelt flour.
  •  2 teaspoon of Baking powder.
  • 1,5 tablespoon of white sugar ( You can use cane sugar, coconut sugar, agave, maple syrup/ honey, etc…)
  • 1/4 of a teaspoon of himmalayan salt.
  • 1/8 cup of water.
  • 1 tablespoon of Peanut butter ( I did it, because I wanted to have my protein, and the result was phenomenal).
  • 1 egg (if you feel that you want to have more textur, then add egg to the mixture).
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional).
  • a pinch of cinnamon (optional- I did it, and it boosts the taste).
  • a pinch of Cayenne pepper ( optional- I did it, because I am crazy, and I put it in almost everything, but being serious, it helps to speed up the metabolism).

Now, you blend all the ingredients, but remember that we first blend the wet ingredients, and then we start adding the dry ingredients slowly into the mixture. When we have our mixture ready, then we put a quarter of coconut oil in the pan, so we can start making our pancakes with the shapes of your preference- don’t warm up the pan too much, so it will give the chance to the pancakes to have that natural beige colour, and not looking burnt.


For toppings, that is an endless list of alternatives to give you, but what I used on my pancakes- as shown in the picture, is Date syrup with a pinch of cinnamon, you can use honey, maple syrup, whipped cream (I have used the soya version), banana with salted caramel, etc…

Hopefully, this alleviates your worries about thinking what to make for breakfast on lazy days, as they will fill you after 6 medium size pancakes ( in my case), and accompany with a delicious Chai latte tea or Cappuccino, and a fruit.

Tell me if you try and like it, or what outcome you got!

Explain me the so-called Super foods ???



I will try to keep it short and sweet, as the goods perfumes, as this topic can be endless.

Why Super-foods?

Dieticians and many health associations defines this Super-food as a marketing term to advertise some products or create a trend in terms of new eating habits, as the health boosters.

As in the fashion industry, we have all fallen into the trends, either the 70s, retro or the most avant-garde clothes; likewise, it happens in our eating.

There are not miraculous fruits or vegetables, they are all equally goods, only when they are eaten on a clever and haealthy manner.


Are those so-called Super-foods also Super-expensive?

The list is HUGE, but I just want to stress out that these are not extraterrestrial products, or extremely difficult to find. These are just regular items that we all buy in our grocery stores.

Nevertheless, we can find in the list of the Super-foods more exotic and new products every day, so that some of them can be only found in the organic or health specialized stores, where they launching products are more expensive than ordinary ones (The trend concept)- for instance, Acai or Chia seeds, that are not so affordable or accessible.

I will not give a full list of the so-called Super-foods, but the ones I use the most, and I consider very affordable are as follows:


  • Spinach: This is my main source of protein, but besides that reason, I simply love it, because it goes well on all types of foods, from smoothies to salads. It contains Vitamins B2, B6, K, E, A, Calcium, Potassium, Mangaese, Copper, etc. This regulates the blood sugar levels, has antiflamatory properties, and controls the hunger and satiety.


  • Oatmeal: It contains Vitamins B1, B5, Zinc, Folate, Iron, Manganese, among others. This is my fuel every morning, helps me to kick off the day with energy. This is also my source of protein, but also of cabs, enrinched with vitamins and minerals. The oatmeal has proweful antioxidants, and helps to reduce the blood pressure and lower the sugar levels.

Chia 1.jpg

  • Chia Seeds: Another good source of protein. This is rich of Omega 3-fatty acids, Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc, Vitamins A, B, D, E, among other minerals. The chia seeds are excelent to balance the insuline levels, which helps to have a good digestive health, regulates the cholesterol and lower the blood pressure. It has antioxidants, which helps the skin and aging process.


  • Cayenne Pepper: This is my spoiled and favorite Super-food. I use it in all my foods, from my coffee, smoothies, salads to basically all. This contains antioxidants, Vitamin C, Magnesium, Calcium, Niacin, and others. The cayenne pepper is a metabolism speeder, so it helps to burn calories and supress apettite, pain reliever, alleviate allergies, regulates the circulatory system,  among thousands benefits ( I love this one).


  • Eggs: Pure protein. This contains Folic acid, Iodine, Biotin, Vitamin A, B2, B12, B5, D, E, among others. The most common ingredients in most of the breakfasts, this makes wonders. This helps to lower the risk of heart diseases, elevates the HDL (the good cholesterol) that reduces the risk of many diseases, and reduces blood triglycerides.


  • Peanut Butter: I use it mostly on my breakfasts and dinners. This is another source of my proteins.It contains Potassium, Fiber, Vitamins D1, D2, among others. This helps to lower Type 2 Diabetes, to fight memory impairment and Alzheimer, Colon Cancer, weight loss and other purposes.


  • Quinoa: My perfect choice of carbs in my lunch. This is a good protein source that contains Zinc, Folate, Manganese, Magnessium, Copper and other nutrients. Quinoa is an excellent option to regulate the metabolism, the blood sugar levels, Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, Colon Cancer, among million others.

Goji bær

  • Goji berries: The taste is very particular, as you need to combine it with your smoothies, oatmeals and others to get the yummy taste, but its properties make it worthy to eat it. This contains Fiber, Zinc, Vitamin C, Antioxidants and others. The goji berries are the best to finish the annoying gout sensation (Mostly when people have eaten read meats in big proportions), gives a good quality of sleep, protection from UV radiation, eye health, cancer-fighting properties.

This list is not quite complete, because I use much more than these, but my intention is not make a full list of all the considered Super-foods. When I was researching for this post, the list was in 52, so I only want to introduce this topic to give a bit more of information about this trend, that to my eyes is merely marketing, but I prefer to take the best out of it, and use it on my benefit.

Either you choose to buy Acai, Spirulina, Chia seeds, Flex seeds, Matcha, and any kind of those exotics products, the idea is to create a good balance of what you eat, and the benefits/results you pursue for your health. Making good choices is not difficult, but removing the obstacles along the way, is very hard, especially for those who like to try all the products, but do not measure the quantities, until they end up consuming all at once.

If this is a trend, a marketing strategy, or whatsoever, take the good of this, and throw what you do not need from this concept. Let’s opt to make good choices, and start from you, your eating habits, your lifestyle. You are a reflection of what you eat, and we are not young for ever, so then why not to begin since now to create good eating routines, and give yourself a good quality of life at an early stage.

Dejame comer a mi manera!

Este es un problema más común de lo que piensan, y quiero expresar mi completa opinión con total respeto acerca de este tema, que se ha vuelto tan repetitivo para muchos como para mi, y, a veces, no tan agradable.

Ya seas vegano, vegetariano, en dieta, evitando algunos tipos de alimentos debido a alergias,-intolerantes a la lactosa, etc …, ¿Cuántos de ustedes han vivenciado esas  situaciones incomodas, donde amigos, familiares y extraños están forzandote de alguna forma a comer a sus manera???. Puedo levantar la mano, y muy en alto, con base a mi experiencia vegetariana.

Cuando estas en el comienzo de una experiencia vegana y/o vegetariana, te encontrarás con una gran cantidad de personas que trataran de cambiar tu forma de pensar con argumentos baratos, o ideas locas sin ningún fundamento. Nunca he entendido por qué las personas se sienten tan afectadas por la manera en como otros comen.

Esto debería ser una decisión muy personal, que por sentido común deberia ser respetada, pero he tenido críticas como en aquellos momentos cuando la gente ha tratado de obligarme a comer alimentos que yo simplemente no como, donde mis argumentos son no suficientes para ellos darse por vencidos, entonces intentan por otros medios de cambiar mi opinión.


Puedo hacer una lista de las diversas situaciones, que he tenido que hacerle frente a lo largo de esta experiencia, la cual inicialmente fue muy tediosa, pero que con el tiempo, aprendi a manejarlas a mi favor.

– Tu tienes ese amigo que come en proporciones más grandes que tu, y se siente feliz, haciendote comer en la misma cantidad que él/ella (suena bastante infantil, pero esto tiene antecedentes psicologicos).
Ese amigo con el que compartes una cena, y ha cocinado toneladas de un plato, y te empieza a chantajear diciendo que si alguien no termina las sobre de esa comida, él/ella tendra que tirarlo a la basura.
Ese amigo que ha horneado/comprado tantos pasteles, bizcochos, postres o dulces que solo tratan de hacerlos que tu los comas.
Ese amigo que solamente quiere salir contigo, para tener cenas/ comidas pesadas, donde a pesar de que él/ella sabe que tu no comes esa manera, po aun cuando tu insistes en solo verse para tomar un café, él/ella siempre encontrara una formavde tener esa “bendita” comida pesada, sin importar qué día de la semana es (afectando a aquellos que manejan la opcion del “dia de comer lo que sea” una vez a la semana).
Ese amigo que solamente te da de regalos: chocolates, pasteles, dulces y todo tipo de alimentos que él/ella sabe que tu evitas o no te gustan.
Ese amigo que les gusta presionarte, haciendote ordenar más comida, porque piensa que ambos no han comido en la misma proporción o cantidad, de la que él/ella está comiendo.
Ese amigo que insiste rrepetitivamente en hacerte ir a nuevos lugares dónde comer, aun cuando él/ella sabe que tu intentas darte ese gusto una vez a la semana.
Ese amigo que siempre está dandote consejos de comer más, porque él ella piensa que vas a tener problemas de salud eventualmente, aun cuando él/ella sabe que tu comes cinco veces al día, en proporciones moderadas, de una forma muy equilibrada y saludable.
En el trabajo, reuniones familiares o con seres queridos, poniendote en una posición muy difícil cuando te preguntan delante de todo el mundo probar cierto tipo de comida que ellos saben que tu no comes.
Los que tratan de hacerte parecer estúpido o miserable por la forma en la que comes, en frente de otros a tu alrededor.
Los que te preguntan por qué o cómo decidiste ser vegano o vegetariano, y despues que has dado tu explicación, arrojan su sarcasmo a través de comentarios hirientes sobre una decisión personal.
Los que ni siquiera conocen, y se atreven a aconsejart y decir que la forma en la que estás comiendo no es la correcta, con base a ideas no concluyentes o concepciones sesgadas.


Siento que se escapan otros casos que vivo tan a menudo, como para muchos otros muchos (estoy segura). Esto es sólo una manera personal de dar de mi opinión sobre estas situaciones tan pocos placenteras que puede llegar a acabar amistades, relaciones y hasta originando discusiones familiares, simplemente por el hecho de no aceptar o tolerar la manera en la que otros comen.

Todos somos diferentes, nos vestimos, hablamos, caminamos, trabajamos y “comemos” de distinas maneras, y aqui existe una necesidad enorme de crear conciencia sobre el respeto y la tolerancia hacia aquellos que son diferentes a ti.

En mi caso personal, nunca han tenido problemas a cualquier lugar, llamenlo restaurante, invitaciones de amigos, bodas, comida en los aviones, reuniones en casa, etc, por mi forma de comer, así que ¿por que deben convertirse en un problema para los demás ??? .

Esta es una invitación amistosa a llegar a ser más respetuosos hacia los demás, y que no tiene por qué ser estrictamente sobre la forma en la que comemos, porque este mundo ya es lo suficientemente intolerante en otros temas que no voy a hablar aquí, pero necesitamos hacer una introspección y darnos cuenta de que por la forma de juzgar o tratar a los demás, tu serás tambien juzgado y tratado de la misma forma (algunos lo llaman Karma, yo lo llamo la ley de reciprocidad).

Let me eat my way!!!

This is a more common issue than what you think, and I want to express my full opinion with total respect about this topic, that has become so repetitive for many, and at times, not pleasant anymore.

Either you are vegan, vegetarian, on a diet, avoiding some types of food due to allergies, lactose-intolerant, etc…, how many of you have experienced those uncomfortable situations when friends, relatives and strangers are forcing you to eat their way???. I can raise my hand, and very high, based on my vegetarian journey.

When you are at the beginning of a vegan and vegetarian journey, you will come across with a lot of people trying to make you change your mind with cheap statements, or crazy ideas without any foundation. I have never understood why people get so affected by the way of how other people eat.

That should be a very personal decision, that by common sense must be respected, as for those moments I have faced, when people are trying to force me to eat foods that I simply don’t eat, where my arguments are not enough for them to give up, so they wI’ll keep trying by other means to change my mind.


I can list various situations, I have been handling along my journey, which initially were very tedious to cope, but along the time, I learned how to manage them like a boss eventually.

  • When you have that friend that eats more than you, and feels happy to make you eat on the same quantity as he/she is eating ( it sounds childish, but it is triggered by phisychological backgrounds).
  • That friend with whom you are sharing a dinner, and has cooked tons of a dish, and starts blackmailing you that if somebody does not eat the leftovers, he/ she will have to throw it away.
  • That friend that has baked/bought so many cakes, cupcakes, desserts or sweets that only tries to push them all away to you.
  • That friend that only wants to meet you up to have heavy meals with you, even though he/she knows that you don’t eat that way, or even when you keep insisting to meet up only a coffee, he/she will sneak around to find the way to have that freaking heavy meal, not matter what day of the week (affecting those who have the treat day option of once a week).
  • That friend that only gives you as presents, chocolates, cakes, sweets, and all kinds of food that he/she knows that you avoids or dislikes.
  • That friend that likes to put pressure on you, making you order more food, because thinks that you have not eaten much or at the same proportion, so he/she is eating the most.
  • That friend who is insisting you to make you go very often to new places where to eat, even though he/she knows that you have your treat day only one day in the week.
  • That friend that is always giving you advise to eat more, because he/she thinks that you will struggle with health issues eventually, even though he/she knows that you are eating 5 times a day, in moderate proportions, on a very balanced and healthy manner.
  • At work, family gatherings or with very close ones, putting you on a very hard position when asking you in front of everyone to try food that they know you don’t eat.
  • Those who try to make you look stupid or miserable, by eating the way you eat in front of those who are around you.
  • Those who ask you why or how you decided to become vegan or vegetarian, and later you have given your explanation, they throw shadows through hurtful comments about a personal decision.
  • Those who don’t even know, and dare to give you advise and tell you that the way you are eating is not the right one, based on inconclusive ideas or biased conceptions.


I feel that I am missing so many other cases which are so often to me as for many many others ( I am sure). This is just a personal way of pulling my opinion about these very unpleasant situations that can end up, breaking up friendships, relationships and making family arguings, just by the fact of not accepting or tolerating how others eat.

We are all different, we dress, speak, walk, work and “eat” on different ways, and there is a HUGE need to create an awareness of respect and tolerance towards those that can be different from you.

In my personal case, I have never struggled at any place, let’s call it restaurants, friends invitations, wedding , food on planes, home parties, or whatsoever by the way I eat, so why that should become a problem for others???.

This is a friendly invitation to become more respectful towards others, and it doesn’t need to be strictly about the way of eating, because this world is already intolerant enough on other subjects that I won’t talk about here, but we need to make an introspective and realize that by the way you judge or treat others, you will be judged and treated the same (some call it Karma, I call it reciprocity law).

Gimme my rice🖖

It’s been long time since I ate my rice, but as a good child, this always return home, and so I did.

Here you see a delicious full corn rice, accompanied with some broccoli  (source of protein), colourful paprikas, vegan meat, and all the ingredients are marinated in a BBQ sauce and seasoned with himmalayan salt, pepper, and my one and only Cayenne Pepper. Of course, I cooked everything with my coconut oil😉👍

I cannot complain, the flavours are amazing😍👌
