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!!

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.

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.

Risotto often brings that comforting feeling to mind. This hearty buckwheat and mushroom risotto is no exception. Buckwheat is a wonder grain in a sense as it comes with numerous health benefiting qualities. It neither comes from a grass family nor closely associated with wheat as the name suggests.
