Almond Coconut Balls

Almond Coconut Balls

Energy balls are healthy small bites packed with highly nutritious ingredients. They are one of the food trends of 2017. With only five ingredients I created a very easy, quick to prepare, and super delicious version of a Raffaello-style energy ball,  a perfect Valentine’s treat for you and your loved one. This is also a great example of a healthy dessert and will help those of us who made a New Year’s resolution of a healthier lifestyle. I’m using almond and coconut, rich in healthy fat, fiber, magnesium, and vitamin E, and organic honey as a sweetener. Did you know that honey has antibacterial properties? That’s why honey is often called a natural antibiotic. We’ve never been using a lot of refined sugar in our house, but after starting my blog about two years ago, I cut out refined sugar completely. It feels great to eat healthy desserts.

Raw Beetroot Hummus

Raw Beetroot Hummus

I love the flavors of Middle Eastern food, especially from Lebanon, Turkey, and Morocco. To make this hummus, I added Zatar and a little chilli, which goes very well with the earthy flavour of the beetroots. Zatar is an herb that grows in the Middle East and tastes similar to thyme and oregano. In the Lebanese cuisine, it’s being used with sesame seeds and olive oil to create spreads for flat breads. Beetroots, especially when raw, are a very good source of vitamins and minerals. They are packed with antioxidants to keep our immune system healthy. A real super food!

Walnut and Hazelnut Crackers

Walnut and Hazelnut Crackers

Crackers make for a nice snack and are also great as an appetizer when welcoming guests. In this recipe I added hazelnuts and walnuts combined with a little spicy chilli powder. Baking your own crackers is great because you can get very creative with different herbs or spices. I love trying different ingredients to see what the outcome is. And the best part: you only have to mix the ingredients, spread them out, and let them bake in the oven – easy, quick, and delicious.

Homemade Vegetable Broth

Homemade Vegetable Broth

The following recipe is a quick and easy way to prepare homemade broth without worrying about processed sugar or other potentially unhealthy additives. I cook vegetable broth about once a week, saving various cut-offs for a couple of days until I have enough to cook a delicious broth.  The broth can be easily stored for about a week in the fridge, or you can also freeze it. I use homemade vegetable broth in many of my recipes and it’s unique every due to slightly different ingredients.
