Creamy Broccoli Spaghetti (the underrated veg that most kids hate..)

You know, I’m tired of hearing bad things about vegetables. Especially from kids! Take broccoli. In this country, the UK, broccoli are constantly described negatively. I hear kids all the time talking about broccoli as a disgusting veg.. and sadly, in many cases parents’ choices and examples in the matter don’t help, as I witnessed…

Wild Rice & Creamy Cauli

Yesterday I felt like preparing a warm, cosy meal for Sophie using wild rice. Something filling and creamy but light at the same time. Some people refer to wild rice as an aquatic grass, some as a grain. To me it’s a nutritious food, rich in fibre, anti oxidants, folate, phosphorous, manganese, zinc and magnesium. It…

Banana & Cinnamon Bread

I was 10 years old when I first tried a banana cake: it was instant love ♥ In Italy, where I grew up, banana cakes were not common and not exactly the typical mediterranean dessert. Yet, there is something so comforting in its taste, I knew I was hooked! So I decided to come up with a healthier version than the…
