Healthy Recipes

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!

Watermelon and Plum Smoothie

This refreshing smoothie is rich in electrolytes and antioxidant nutrients and is ideal as a workout/sports drink. Most of us over-consume sodium, but many people get less than required amount of potassium. It is important to balance the ratio of minerals like sodium and potassium for the proper functioning of the body.

Soft and Moist Vegan Christmas Pudding

Christmas isn’t Christmas for many of us without a traditional pudding. I would prefer to make it at home when buying it from local supermarket is the easiest option. But the decision to make it at home gives us the option to choose healthiest ingredients with high nutritive value.
