Easy Pale Green Smoothie

This simple, quick and easy vegan smoothie is ideal for warm evenings and a perfect way to pack more vegetables, fruits and nuts into your daily quota. Plus, it tastes amazing!! Unlike the other green smoothies, leafy vegetables are not added to this smoothie. If you wish you could throw a handful of spinach or kale leaves or any other leafy vegetable of your choice into your blender when you make this.

Sumac and chilli roasted pumpkin seeds

It’s the time of the year when we all get to harvest or buy a lot of pumpkins and squashes. Why not roast the seeds rather than throwing away? They make excellent nutritious and crunchy snacks. They are also ideal for sprinkling on top of soups or salads.

Good Nutrition Healthy Life

Increasing your vegetable or fruit intake might not be an easy task and doing more physical activity is no different. Even though organic produce is not sprayed with chemicals, you might feel that they are more expensive for you to accommodate them in your daily diet. But what if we can get it all by simply spending some quality time in the back garden every day. According to Harvard Medical School, 30 minutes of general gardening could help you burn between 135 to 200 calories depending on your weight.

Cancer risk: How dangerous is our food?

Food Standard Agency has informed the possible cancer risk caused by eating acrylamide containing foods. Acrylamide can bind to our DNA, cause mutation and lead to cancer. According to Cancer Research UK, evidence from animal studies has shown that acrylamide in food could be a potential risk to cancer, but the results have been mixed or inadequate in human studies,”

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.

Cool Apple Smoothie

Even though the weather is getting crispier and leaves are changing colour, I still prefer a cool smoothie and nothing says fall as much as apples and pumpkins. Using up every single apple from my beautiful apple tree is a task I handle every year. Smoothie is one of the ways I prefer because I don’t essentially need to add unhealthy stuffs to it to make it taste good!

Watermelon and Plum Smoothie

This refreshing smoothie is rich in electrolytes and antioxidant nutrients and is ideal as a workout/sports drink. Most of us over-consume sodium, but many people get less than required amount of potassium. It is important to balance the ratio of minerals like sodium and potassium for the proper functioning of the body.
