Potato and Edamame Bean Soup

Potatoes are not just popular in Britain, but also in Europe, America, and 150 other countries. It is now an inevitable part of weekly shopping. Most people love it due to its ability to make any dish rich and creamy.

Banana and Dark Chocolate Pancake

Happy pancake day to all readers!!!

These outrageously awesome pancakes are the best I ever came across!! My pancake recipe is perfect for breakfast or as a workout snack.

Protein Rich Tofu & Skyr Dip

I am always in constant search for low fat and tasty dips. So last Friday, for family tv time munch, I began experimenting and ended up in the preparation of a healthy Tofu & Skyr dip. Honestly, my family absolutely loved this dip.

Cancer risk: How dangerous is our food?

Food Standard Agency has informed the possible cancer risk caused by eating acrylamide containing foods. Acrylamide can bind to our DNA, cause mutation and lead to cancer. According to Cancer Research UK, evidence from animal studies has shown that acrylamide in food could be a potential risk to cancer, but the results have been mixed or inadequate in human studies,”

The Sunshine Vitamin

Winter is rolling in and it is now time to focus on one important vitamin - vitamin D or the sunshine vitamin. Getting healthy levels of vitamin D is difficult in meagre sunlight, especially if you have dark skin. Usually we don’t have to worry about it in summer as vitamin D can be synthesized in the skin in response to sun’s ultraviolet rays by converting subcutaneous cholesterol to vitamin D.

Pumpkin and chocolate dessert

Pumpkin is one of the most versatile squash and thanksgiving is not complete without at least one pumpkin dish on feast table. This frozen pumpkin dessert is an alternative to usual pumpkin pie with a pleasant twist from chocolate and cinnamon.  Mellowness of pumpkin goes well with the nuttiness of almonds and sweet indulgence of maple syrup and chocolate.

Pumpkin Soup

Importance of pumpkin is huge when it comes to fall, not just because we harvest a lot of pumpkins during the fall months but also because of the significant role it has to play on occasions like Halloween and thanksgiving. There are plenty of ways to cook the pumpkin after Halloween, but this nutritious and comfortingly delicious soup is my family’s favourite.

Black bean veggie burger

Any day can be a burger day, but what if we can make it with healthiest ingredients instead of red meat. Although meat burgers are nutritionally good, they contain nasty stuffs like preservatives and are usually high in saturated fat and salt. You can cut down these considerably by making the burger from scratch using good lean meat. Yet I find my veggie burger very satisfying as I know exactly what and how much is going in it.

Healthy Beetroot Flapjacks

Beetroots are in season now and there is no harm in adding a root vegetable to your favourite snack. So here is my recipe for wholesome goodness. This flapjack is mildly sweet, chewy and crunchy at the same time. Nuttiness of the oats and cashews goes well with sweetness of the beetroot, honey and maple syrup. Plus that extra sweet flavour and alluring aroma from cardamom makes it perfect anytime snack.

Cool Apple Smoothie

Even though the weather is getting crispier and leaves are changing colour, I still prefer a cool smoothie and nothing says fall as much as apples and pumpkins. Using up every single apple from my beautiful apple tree is a task I handle every year. Smoothie is one of the ways I prefer because I don’t essentially need to add unhealthy stuffs to it to make it taste good!
