Why I love PARSLEY ?

Why I love PARSLEY ?

We’ve been really good friends since I was a little child, but now we are really inseparable. It wasn’t really hard for me to bond with my dear parsley… actually most of the times; it was present in my food. In my household parsley was very often used, as you can imagine. Now I realise the fact that not only I was in love with parsley, but I guess parsley was in love with me also, otherwise I could not explain why parsley would wave to me from the farmers market, every time I went there with my dad. 😀 How can you not love it? It is green, cheerful and tasty… really tasty; on top of all these qualities,

SESAME SEEDS equals PACKED CALCIUM

SESAME SEEDS equals PACKED CALCIUM

I will never forget those days when I used to see sesame bars, for sale, at the farmers market, when I went to the mountains with my grandparents. What a feeling! Beautiful times, beautiful years, true joy! Those bars were incredible tasty and I felt like I was in Wonderland… just like Alice. 😀 I was jumping all around because I was very happy that I could find and eat sesame bars in my vacation at the mountains. I didn’t had any clue, that those same sesame seeds , that I used to love as a child, would become, after years and years, a topic of study for me. 😀 Well this is life…unpredictable. Because I love sesame seeds so

YOU are WORK IN PROGRESS…LOADING

YOU are WORK IN PROGRESS…LOADING

This morning we stopped at a gas station to fuel the car; nothing special so far. As I sat in the car, waiting for my colleague to return from the cash register, I couldn’t help myself to observe, just a little bit, all the people that were passing by. This is an interesting practice that I like to explore now and then; it’s very interesting to watch people, to observe all their gestures, to see how they react, to see their body language, to see if they smile or if they are sad, to see that every one of them has their own story, to live and to tell. We are all so different, yet so beautiful, each of us

3 TIPS for buying the perfect avocado

3 TIPS for buying the perfect avocado

Against all opinions it pretty damn easy to buy a perfectly ripe avocado from the supermarket or from the farmers market. This is what I can say now, after at least 20 rotten avocados + 20 unripe ones, bought in my first attempts of introducing avocado in my diet.  😀 … I wasn’t a genius at the beginning. Well since then, things have changed and I became a master in choosing perfect avocados from supermarket. After countless fails, I finally managed to know how I can recognise a perfect avocado. I can even give classes on this subject 😀 !!! I personally love avocado, ripe avocado I should say. It helps me in the kitchen a lot because I can

Let’s talk GLUTEN

Let’s talk GLUTEN

Almost in every food store you enter you find at least 1 product which is labelled as gluten free. This is a trend that I saw since 3-4 years ago. At the beginning I wasn’t familiar at all with the “gluten free” subject, but as time passed by, I educated myself a little bit and most important, I watched myself and I learned from my own experience.   I cannot emphasize enough how important is to learn from your own experience, even though the experience of others might seem legit, we are all different and we perceive things differently. This is the reason for which our own experience with life is the most valuable of all. Don’t get me wrong;

CHOOSING INSPIRATION INSTEAD OF PERFECTION

CHOOSING INSPIRATION INSTEAD OF PERFECTION   I used to have a really bad relationship with food, as a child and then as a teenager. Until the 2nd year of university I never questioned my food choices and especially never realized that perhaps I was eating too much, or too often, or maybe at the wrong hours, too spicy or too salty or even to fatty, etc. It simply didn’t cross my mind that my way of interacting with food was so far from what is naturally intended for us humans. When I was a little girl I was very much in love with my dad and… fried potatoes. Believe it or not, I was obsessed with potatoes, in any way
