Healthy Cookies

Healthy cookiesHaving a new oven sounded like the perfect excuse to try out a new mix of good ingredients and to transform them into tasty cookies. They turned out very well I must say 🙂

I preheated the oven (180 degrees Celsius) and started mixing all the ingredients.

Ingredients:

200 grams of almond flour | 2 eggs | 2 handfuls of a mix of raisins, goji berries, cranberries and walnuts | 1 banana | some honey | ground ginger, cloves, cardemom, cinnamon ( or use ‘speculaaskruiden’) | some salt | coconut flour to make the dough less sticky. Use as much as you think you need.

I made one big sausage-like roll and cut it into slices to make nice round cookies. Put the cookies in the oven for around 20 minutes and enjoy!

I scream ICE CREAM

IJSJESSummertime means popsicle time! This very easy to make recipe is free of sugar, but full of taste and all-organic freshness.

What’s in this one?
– one mango
– one banana
– 100 ml almond milk
– blueberries
– gojiberries
– dried cranberries
– some protein powder vanilla taste
– coconut flakes

The easy part: Blend the mango, banana, milk, half of the blueberries and the protein powder. And to have ice cream with a bite, add the rest of the berries and the coconut just before pouring the mixture into the molds.

Then comes the hard part: waiting until the freezer has done it’s work..

There are many more varieties to try, and I’m sure that such experiments will hardly ever go wrong 😉

Enjoy!

Colourful juicy details

SlowjuicerI have been using my centrifugal juicer for quite some time but decided that I wanted to go for a new one. So, a few weeks ago I bought a new slow juicer and is has been my best friend ever since. It’s a great way for me to start my day and to get healthier. Yes, it is an investment, but it pays itself back in no time!

  • I get much more juice out than with the previous one, so it’s much more economic
  • A juice is packed with nutrients, more than you would take in by eating the fruits and veggies and also more than would come out of a centrifugal juicer.
  • I feel a huge difference in my energy levels and – combined with eating no grains and/or sugar – have no after dinner dips anymore 🙂

I can recommend it to all of you, the greener the better
