MANGO & SPINACH SMOOTHIE

Good morning sunshines!

Hope you’re all feeling sparkling and having a good Saturday so far.

This morning is definitely a mango and spinach smoothie kinda morning.

Spinach are high in proteins, promotes regularity thanks to the fibre content and it’s also amazing for skin and hair health.

GLUTEN-FREE PIADINA with AVOCADO SALSA

Buonasera!

Hey guys! Sorry for the absence. As you know I was in Italy for a week, visiting my friend and I didn’t have the chance to post so much! But here I am!

I had an amazing time, celebrating my friend’s birthday and enjoying the sun!

We definitely ate a lot of piadinas, which is an Italian flatbread, typical of the Emilia-Romagna reagion. They’re so good and sooo tasty!

They’re delicious but not super healthy, so here I have a recipe for you, which is a healthy version of the piadina, obviously still really yummy!!!

TOMATO AWESOME SAUCE

TOMATO AWESOME SAUCE

I remember calling my grandma the first weeks I was here in London and asking her for her tomato sauce recipe: “it’s really simple Mara, wash the tomatoes, cook them, blend them and conserve the sauce in a jar with a basil leaves on top”.

Here I find it really hard to find tomatoes with a strong flavour. Once cooked by themselves they lose their taste and become really watery.

So I decided to add few things: ...

Happy Friday!

The weekend is here and the sun is shining. What are your plans?

Simon and me are gonna go to Ramsgate tomorrow, enjoying a couple of days on the beach and, most importantly, we’re celebrating three birthdays. Simon’s sister Vicki, her partner Tad and sweet Lilly, their daughter. Birthdays make me so excited! I love them! It’s your day, no matter your age, it’s a beautiful occasion to celebrate!

We’re gonna have a BBQ at their house and it’s a couple of days that I’m thinking what I can cook to bring there. Thinking what I recently made that came out as a success, bagels came to mind. I mean, who doesn’t love them, am I right?

They’re deliciously soft and perfect by themselves but...
