Kefir, chia and walnut overnight oats

My clients often come up with this basic lifestyle question: How do you make a quick and healthy breakfast if you are too busy in the morning to make one?  And here is my answer to the question: Well, you don’t have to. You can prepare your perfect breakfast in advance, plus, no cooking is involved in making this. It is not something new or unheard, yes, I am talking about overnight oats. Healthiest breakfast preparation can't be simpler than this!!

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.

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.

Autumn comfort soup in a bowl

Autumn reminds us about comfort eating somehow. The reason could be lack of sunshine or cold wet days. Usually when we choose food for comfort, we tend to choose fatty, sugary and salty foods. But unlike many other so called comfort foods this soup is highly nutritious and healthy. 

Spinach and Butternut Squash Curry

Growing your own vegetables is always very satisfying and so is making a curry.There are plenty of small pumpkins, chillies, tomatoes and spinaches in my garden now. So I always find ways to use them up. I usually make this curry with butternut squash, but I used small pumpkins instead of squash this time just because there are so many of them to pick. 

Grilled Asparagus with Toasted Walnuts

Although the british growing season is over, we can still buy asparagus from supermarkets. This delicate green vegetable is very low in caloires and is packed with vitamin A, C & E, folic acid, potassium and iron. Walnuts are high in vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant and it is in a highly beneficial form. They contain high amount of plant based omega-3 fatty acids, protein, magnesium, phosphorus and fibre. 

Curried butternut squash soup

This simple and easy to make soup is an irresistible combination of aromatic spices and sweet and nutty squash. Butternut squash is an excellent source of orange colour providing beta-carotene, an antioxidant. They can protect our body from free radicals.  On top of that, they provide good amount of vitamin C, B5 and B1, folic acid, potassium and fibre as well. Both cumin and fennel seeds are good for the health of digestive system.
