Forest Berry Smoothie

Forest Berry Smoothie

My kids are not big eaters in the early morning before school, but I always try to give them at least a little bite before they leave the house. A few months ago I had a conversation about healthy food with my oldest daughter Zoe (yes, she is already interested in cooking and asks a lot of questions about healthy food and junk food). That’s when we came up with the idea of starting the early mornings with nice smoothies, to also help the kids concentrate in school. When living in Cape Town we had a healthy little restaurant (Kauai) right next door and we often stopped by to get some delicious and freshly made smoothies. I couldn’t find anything similar in Luxembourg, so why not make our own smoothies at home to start the day?

Filled Meatballs in Tomato Gravy

Filled Meatballs in Tomato Gravy

Nearly every culture has recipes for meatballs and a large variety of flavors exists. In this recipe I combine flavors from the Mediterranean. I use an organic mix of spices and flowers. There are a few organic products available on the market. I used the one from “Sonnentor” and it’s called “good mood”/”Gute Laune” (in German)! It’s a blend of the following: sea salt, garlic, basil, wild garlic, oregano, calendula, rosemary, thyme, rose petals & grain flowers. If you’re unable to find a ready-made blend, you can create your own by mixing as many of the above as you have available.

Chicken & Beluga Lentils in Tomato Gravy

Chicken & Beluga Lentils in Tomato Gravy

Today I opened the fridge and the pantry to see what I could use for a nice weekday meal. Since we haven’t had lentils for a while, I thought it might be nice for the kids, together with some chicken and tomato gravy. Here I used beluga lentils, but you can also use red or brown lentils instead. Only the cooking time may vary.
