Guilt-free chocolate chia pudding

Do you regularly exercise? I realy hope you are not looking for excuses to skip going to the gym or jogging. I’m a very dynamic person and I get bored easily so going to the gym without any special plan of exercising means I’ll try to skip it. But, going to a group class is a different thing. First of all, the time flies so fast when you are exercising in a group that you hardly notice it and more importantly, after this kind of training I really feel like I exercised. These trainings are normally in the evening so I’m…

Irresistible chocolate pralinés with cocoa butter

I want to write about it, I start writing, then I stop, I read what I wrote and then, dissatisfied with the result, I delete everything. I write again, read and delete…I’m not satisfied because it is difficult for me to find the right words to describe that perfection which helped me so many times to deal with stress and sadness. Yes, I’m talking about chocolate, as you can all imagine. Nowadays we can easily choose what to eat and buy and we have such a variety of choice, but big companies, in order to earn more money, start to offer…

Strawberry and banana smoothie

Spring is here and we can see the changes in the nature everywhere: the sky is blue, trees are green and a mild wind is blowing. Even though in some parts of Barcelona there is no such a huge difference in the nature between winter and spring, there is some special energy that comes with spring and everything starts to look prettier and better. Just before the spring comes, lots of people decide it’s time to eat healthier, to include more fruits and vegetables in their diet and to start exercising so they can be ready for the bikini season. I…

Divine Snickers cake

Today I went back to Amsterdam. I’m so in love with that city that I often return there and wander its streets in my thoughts. I watch the buildings and I get transported to XVII century Amsterdam, I’m trying to imagine how it looked like back then while I’m trying to avoid the cyclists who are coming towards me without any intention to slow down. And then, when I get tired of wandering the streets, I go to a small vegan café with a huge shop window that overlooks the canal and I enjoy a huge piece of vegan Snickers cake. Mmm, what a…

Clermont-Ferrand in 48 hours

Welcome to Clermont-Ferrand, the city which is, I guess, unknown to many of you. At least I can say that when I mention its name French people look at me in a strange way and can’t believe I once lived there and non French people usually never heard of it. Some time ago I saw a video Clermont-Ferrand in 48 hours made by the Tourist Organization of the city and I felt nostalgic. It’s been almost 7 years since I left this city where I lived for a year. This video reminded me of the days spent in Lecoq Garden where…

Chocolate Easter eggs

Happy Easter! Time flies so fast and Easter is already here although it seems like Christmas was only yesterday. Like during Christmas, everything is full of decoration, just this time with Easter decoration like yellow chicks, Easter bunnies and chocolate eggs that I just couldn’t resist and had to buy some of it for my home. I bought some decorations for the eggs that look like different animals and you just have to stick animals’ ears, nose and eyes to the eggs. Pretty childish, I know, but the eggs look so sweet, as you can see in the photo below. I have to admit this was the…

Spring lemonade with strawberries

Spring is finally here. I know very well that waiting for weekend, vacations, spring or summer is always a waste of time and life and that we should embrace every moment and seize the day, but I can’t control the happiness I feel when I see the blue sky, white flowers and feel the mild wind on my face. So, I’m sorry for wasting my life waiting, but dear spring, I missed you so much, thank you for coming! Spring brings us lots of strawberries that I love so much so I’m trying to use them in every recipe I can. I…

A perfect mix: Greek yogurt, granola, overnight oats and hazelnut butter

I have to admit one thing. Last couple of months I prepared only one breakfast every day. I don’t know if it’s because I’m not creative, or because I’m lazy in the morning or just because this breakfast is so perfect so there is no need to change it. I’m talking about the layered breakfast I already shared one recipe for. You can change and combine the ingredients as you wish or with what you find in your fridge. Maybe I am creative after all 🙂 Normally I put Greek yogurt as the first layer, then homemade granola (you can also…

Italian Tiramisu, so creamy and irresistible

I’ve always loved Italy. Somehow, every time I think about that country, my heart starts beating faster and I’m ready to jump into the first plane and go to any of its cities, drink a coffee in some Italian bar and wander through unknown streets. There is something in that language that sounds like a song, in the air, in their chaos, pizzas, pastas and creamy and irresistible desserts. When I think of Italy, everything starts to smell like coffee, the true Italian coffee, incomparable to any other. I always loved coffee, not the black one, but coffee with a lot of milk,…
