Green smoothies

Good morning!

I’m accustomed myself to making smoothies in the morning. I pour it in a sport bottle and take to work. So I can have tasty and enriched bite in the first half of the day. Yesterday I had orange smoothie with carrots, papaya and almond milk.

Today I have green smoothie (for two):

  •  2 kiwi
  •  1 green apple
  • 1 glass of water
  • Couple pieces of a pineapple
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of stevia

Enjoy the mornings! 🙂

Morning notes and fruit salad with cinnamon

Morning is my favorite time of the day. In the morning I love to do the most pleasant things: practice yoga, cook delicious breakfast, read a book, work out or just go for a walk. Recently I began to write morning notes. They say it helps to disclose the creativity. You wake up in the morning; you take a pen and write everything you have in your head (use a pen, not the keyboard or touch screen). The main thing is to write everything, even some funny and crazy thoughts!

This morning I wrote my notes and made bright fruit salad for breakfast.

Fruit salad (for two):

  • 1 kiwi
  • ½ pineapple
  •  ¼ watermelon
  • Cinnamon to your taste
  • Home-made yoghurt or non-fat cottage cheese to your taste (optional)

Let this day be also bright and rich!

Fruits and nuts smoothie for breakfast

A multilayer smoothie! Beautiful, healthy and nutritious!

I rescheduled my workout in order to make it and take some pictures of it.

Multilayer smoothies look really beautiful in transparent glass. I also enjoy the richness of taste when I eat different layers with the small spoon and occasionally mix them.

Fruit and nut smoothie (for two):

  • 1 mango
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 kiwi
  • Fresh mint
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • About 20 Hazelnuts
  • 100 g of homemade yoghurt (or non-fat cottage cheese)
  •  8 walnuts

Blend the mango and pour the first layer into the glasses. Wash the blender. Then blend avocado, kiwi, mint and cinnamon. Pour a second layer. Put hazelnuts on the top. Then pour homemade yoghurt or non-fat cottage cheese. Decorate your smoothie with walnuts, hazelnuts and mint leaves.

Enjoy the taste of this wonderful breakfast!

Healthy sweets: cottage cheese and fruit cake

Every weekend I cook tasty and healthy sweets. I should mention that I do not use wheat flour and oatmeal because they contain gluten. I do not eat it since I have read many articles and researches about it couple of years ago. So this time I baked cottage cheese and banana cake with an orange and mango on my own recipe 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of stevia
  •  2 spoons of coconut flour
  • 2 spoons of rice flour
  • 4-5 bananas
  • 250 grams of non-fat cottage cheese
  • The peel of one orange
  • Mango
  •  15 grams of casein protein for the decoration (can be replaced with a yoghurt)

Mix two eggs with the stevia, and then add rice and coconut flours. You can use only rice flour or mix it with wheat flour (if you eat it). I do not recommend using just coconut flour because there is too much calories in it. I like the taste when coconut flour is mixed with some other. Then mix bananas, cottage cheese and grated orange peel in a blender, and then add flour and eggs. Then put everything to the form and put it to the oven for 30 minutes.

The decoration is up to you. I mixed mango and casein protein in a blender and used some orange peel with a slices of almond.

After the cake is ready you should put it in the fridge for 1-2 hours or for the whole night.

We ate it for breakfast and as a snack during the day. It is delicious and it just melts in the mouth.
