Too Good to be True beetroot and apple salad

“TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE” BEETROOT & APPLE SALAD

“You’re just too good to be true, can’t take my fork off you. You feel like heaven in my mouth, oooh I want to eat you so much…” Cannot think of a better tribute to my new favorite salad really. Ode of joy is the next one on my playlist 🙂

It is amazing how only three humble ingredients; raw beetroot, apple and toasted walnuts, can create such a mouth-watering, energizing & rejuvenating dish! After a very first bite, you can feel life energy entering each cell of your body, patching up any micronutrient deficiency there might be, to get you back on track. Or to better say – on warp power.

Green power pasta sauce

GREEN POWER PASTA SAUCE

The old Latin proverb “Mens sana in corpore sano”, or “A healthy mind in a healthy body” has always been one of my main life mottos. In these crazy uncertain times, we surely need a good dose of mental sanity, as well as titanium immune system, which can only be maintained by a proper nutrition. Proper nutrition = consuming foods that truly feed every single cell of our body.

As it usually goes, theory is not a rocket science, but occasionally it does get a bit tricky with a real life application. How many times per week do you ask yourself: “Hm, what should I eat today?” Then your mind instantly blocks, and eventually you end up nibbling on store bought/restaurant ordered ready to go meal accompanied by that heavenly looking totally E ingredients friendly dessert…

But hey my friend, help is on the way! It is actually a recipe away 🙂 All the goodness of the Green Machine Pasta Sauce is there to patch you up on a body, and consequently mind level.

Smashing pumpkin smoothie

SMASHING PUMPKIN SUPER SMOOTHIE

And it was all yelloooow… (me singing 🙂 ) Yeap, this is how my kitchen looks like these days – bright, filled with sweet and uplifting pumpkin scent.

Low in calories and loaded with nutrients, it is no wonder that this humble veggie has been in a spotlight of my autumn season dishes, both savoury and sweet. Talking about nutrients – did you know that one cup (205 g.) of butternut squash contains more than 450% of vitamin A RDI; powerful anti-oxidant which rejuvenates, makes your skin glow and improves the eyesight? On top of that, this one cup contains over 50% of vitamin C RDI (anti-age, cell repair, immune boost), as well as abundance of magnesium, potassium and other vital minerals for a strong and healthy body.* Now, how cool is that?

Quarantine Chickpeas Easter Salad

QUARANTINE CHICKPEAS EASTER SALAD

Hmmm, wondering what to do for upcoming Easter Break… Where should I go? Or maybe I just skip all the travel hustle and stay at home? OK, that was a bit of a black humor there, but in times like these you do need a good dose to remain sane 🙂

In a way, last 3 weeks have been a true eye opener. Spending more time at home, and being “tight” to a beautiful place where I live, made me appreciate everyday little things and my surroundings even more. Distracted by everyday obligations and a hectic tempo imposed solely by ourselves, we had simply forgotten to enjoy all those precious and genuinely fulfilling moments which come for free. I sincerely hope that you have re-discovered at least 3 little joys for a fuller and happier life, which you will continue to nourish once life pace goes back to “normal”. Being a bit cynical with the term normal, but that is the topic for another post. Been pondering and self-reflecting a lot lately, so got a bit side tracked))

Let me come back to those tiny precious joys. For me, one of the most relevant ones, was to remember how a good quality exciting meals can be prepared from the basic cupboard ingredients. Nutrition and creativity should certainly remain our prime focus in the kitchen. It is fun to experiment with exotic ingredients occasionally, but Peruvian strawberries, quinoa, jackfruit, kombucha, or Wakame algae are not prerequisite for a healthy fit body & taste buds indulgence!
