This is what I ate today: healthy farfalle on a spinach-rocket duet sprinkled with roasted sunflower seeds.

20140103_181158This must me one of the healthiest pasta dishes I ever had because it’s not only with super healthy spinach and rocket salad (everyone needs their leafy green vegs!) but the farfalle are also made out of wholemeal. Oh and it was delicious too 😉

It’s Wednesday again, so it’s time to share with you what I ate today. Nutrition is really important to me because I think it is key to a good, balanced and healthy life. If you didn’t know already, I eat a vegetarian diet. So for all those vegetarians out there (or those who just want to eat less meat), these posts are for you 🙂

Because it was so hot outside, I opted for a light salad and a fresh, ripe galia lemon as dessert.

I’m very happy that the festive season has finally started and that Christmas is not far away! Nevertheless, lots of you also fear this season because of the many heavy and rich foods you will probably over indulge in. I’m a big advocate in indulging in these foods on Christmas, so don’t try not to do it or you will miss an important part of what Christmas is all about!
Instead, why not try a pre-Christmas detox so you won’t feel as guilty. Here, I’ll show you my favourite and yummy way to detox-I’ll simply replace my breakfast and evening meal with a green smoothie:

The Benefits of Green Smoothies

  • They’re a complete food (unlike green juices) because they have fiber
  • The fact that they have fiber also makes them filling
  • They are easy to digest (which is why I drink mine in the morning)
  • They’re quick and easy to make as long as you have all of the ingredients
  • Green smoothies last 2-3 days if they’re refrigerated
  • They incorporate both greens and fruits
  • Antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients galore
  • They increase energy, mental clarity and focus
  • Clearer skin!
  • They make you crave healthy foods

Recipe:

  • (1) handful of spinach
  • (1) handful of kale
  • (1) tbsp. coconut oil (healthy fat)
  • (1) banana (you can also use green apples, berries, etc.)
  • (2) tablets of bee pollen
  • (1) tbsp. of agave nectar (for sweetness if you want)
  • water (you can use coconut water or green tea)
  • (1) blender

Just combine these ingredients, blend and voila! This detox would also be great for New Year, so you can decide whether you want to do a pre-or post-Christmas detox. Even if you don’t feel the need to detox at all, it is always a good idea to drink smoothies like this one for a balanced and healthy diet. Enjoy the drink and of course your Christmas meal as well 🙂
