Hi there!

We love to catch up on Sundays. This time, as it’s boiling hot here in Madrid, we decided to stay at home, turn the AC and music on, and cook something fun and tasty!

We’ve made spelt crepes with veggies, chickpeas and lentil hummus.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

INGREDIENTS (2 people):

To make the crepes:

  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 1 cup oat milk
  • 1 egg
  • a pinch of salt

To make the filling:

  • Half of a small red cabbage
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 carrots
  • lentil hummus ( traditional or pepper is also fine)
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • a pinch of sweet paprika
  • parsley
  • extra virgin olive oil

PREPARATION:

To make the crepes, place the spelt flour, oat milk, salt and whisked egg into a bowl and mix everything together until well combined.

Cut the red cabbage in very thin slices, shred the carrots and chop the onion. Brown the onion and then place it together in a bowl with the raw cabbage and carrots.

Rinse the chickpeas well and sautée them in the pan with sweet paprika.

Now you’ll just need to spread some lentil hummus on the crepes, add the veggies and chickpeas on top and sprinkle some parsley.

Ready to enjoy!!

Hope you love them!

Nos encanta quedar los domingos para ponernos al día de todo. Esta vez nos hemos quedado en casa, pusimos el aire acondicionado a tope (aquí en Madrid hace muuucho calor), un poco de música y ¡a cocinar!

Hemos hecho unos crepes de espelta con verduras, garbanzos y humus de lentejas que estaban de muerte.

INGREDIENTES (2 personas):

Para los Crepes:

  • 1 taza de harina de espelta
  • 1 taza de leche de avena
  • 1 huevo
  • 1 pizca de sal

Para el relleno:

  • media lombarda pequeña
  • 2 zanahorias
  • 1 cebolla roja
  • garbanzos cocidos
  • pimentón de la Vera al gusto
  • humus de lentejas (también queda muy rico el normal o el de pimientos)
  • perejil
  • aceite de oliva virgen extra

ELABORACIÓN:

Para hacer los crepes, mezclar en un recipiente la leche de avena, harina de espelta, huevo batido y una pizca de sal. Remover bien hasta que quede sin grumos y hacerlos en una sartén antiadherente con un chorrito de aceite (salen aproximadamente 4).

Por otra parte, para hacer el relleno, picar la cebolla y sofreírla en la sartén. Después cortar la lombarda en tiras muy finas, rallar las zanahorias y mezclar con la cebolla.

Lavar y escurrir muy bien los garbanzos y saltearlos en la sartén con el pimentón.

Para el emplatado simplemente untar sobre los crepes humus al gusto, colocar la mezcla de las verduras y los garbanzos por encima y añadir un poco de perejil.

¡¡Listo!!

The Healthy Rainbow Veggie Bowl

We decided to make this delicious Rainbow Bowl using almost all the organic ingredients we bought the other day, check out the recipe now and fall in love!

Hey there!

Here we are again. We are completely in love with vegan recipes. I don’t know if you have noticed lately that our instagram account is full of amazingly easy and clean eating dishes. That doesn’t mean that all the time we eat like that, we think we have to find balance in everything. Yes, most of the time we eat healthy and plant based, but we also have cheat moments when we can’t resist having a piece of chocolate, a cookie or stuff like that. And this is why we like to make our own treats. It’s just so much fun to create healthy versions of our favourite sweet addictions.

We always want to know what we put in our bodyyyy! We only have one, so we must treat it well. We try to buy organic products as much as we can. The other day we went to an Organic Veggie & Fruit Market heaven in Madrid called Rayo Verde in El Mercado de la Cebada. It was really exciting and we bought lots of things.. ALL ORGANIC.

Mercado de la Cebada – Madrid (La latina)

Why we love to buy organic? There is a huge difference between having a carrot full of pesticides and a delicious and natural one that has none, taste both of them and tell us which one you prefer more. Once in a while we go there to buy veggies, we don’t usually do it because it is more expensive but, anyway  we would say, it’s health worth it (pun intended hehe).

We decided to make this delicious Rainbow Veggie Bowl using almost all the ingredients we bought , check out the recipe now and fall in love!

  1. First of all heat the oven 200ºC . Then wash and peel the sweet potatoes. Cut them in thick slices, in a large bowl season and add the sweet potatoes with smoked paprika, thyme, a crushed garlic, salt, pepper & a drizzle of olive oil. Mix them so all the slices get the flavour. Put over a tray with a baking paper and put it in the oven for 30 minutes while you are preparing the rest of the ingredients.

Hola hola! Por fin estamos de vuelta. Esta vez tenemos un plato lleno de color y de diferentes sabores que hicimos con productos orgánicos que compramos en un puestito de verduras y frutas ecológicas llamado Rayo Verde en el Mercado de la Cebada en Madrid.

Realmente notamos la diferencia de la calidad de los productos. Es cierto que es un poco más caro, y por eso no siempre compramos de esta forma, pero de vez en cuando merece la pena 🙂

A la vuelta del mercado nos pusimos manos a la obra y éste fue el resultado: Bowl Arcoiris Vegetariano. Rápido y sencillo… Y además os va a encantar!

  • 1 diente de ajo
  • Aceite

ELABORACIÓN:

  1. Pre-calienta el horno a 200ºC. Pela los boniatos y córtalos en rodajas. En un bol añadir el pimentón, el tomillo, el ajo picado y un poco de aceite. Añade el boniato y mezcla bien hasta que queden bien impregnadas. Listas para meter al horno durante 30 minutos 🙂
  2. Cocina los noodles según las instrucciones del paquete.

Hi everyone,

We love falafel so much…mmm, It’s one of our favourite vegetarian dishes. We are big fans of this recipe and the best part is that it only has a few ingredients. We try to avoid the frying pan, so we bake them instead, it is the healthier option for us and they are so yummy. You can fry them if you prefer it  though! It’s just a suggestion 🙂

We are Berry Bites


Superfood ME

Food make us go crazy. Almost all the products we buy are organic. Buying organic and high quality products is a bit more expensive but it’s good to invest in yourself and wellbeing.

Hi there!

We have been on holidays for a while! This Summer has been a little bit different than expected, holidays are a good moment to make up your mind and think about what you really want to do next. We will start this stage with a positive mood, fresh ideas and good vibes 🙂

Positive Vibes

We want to talk about eating real, high quality and unique food. Being a healthy foodie like us, is not tricky at all, because we love eating green, fruits and whole grain products. But also we love eating ice cream, snacks…

Food makes us go crazy. We try to do the right combinations, our shopping is based on veggies, fruits & nuts. Almost all the products we buy are organic. Buying organic is a bit more expensive but it’s good to invest in your wellbeing. We notice that we feel better with ourselves and we enjoy more of the little things in life.

Shopping

That is why we support the Mood Food movement in which certain foods influence our wellbeing. Fruit is a source of optimism. Whilst the consumption of processed foods, with lots of sugar and toxines provokes depression. Follow the happiness diet!

Lydia and Kiwi

We eat balanced trying to introduce some superfoods in our plant & nut based diet, here are some of our favorite superfoods and tips to keep healthy:

  • Drink a lot of water during day. Every morning before breakfast we tend to drink a glass of cold water with a squeeze of lemon. Detoxing your body is diuretic, helps digestion, cleans your skin and helps you lose weight. It also combats our cravings.
  • Avocados. Everyone knows that we are in love with this amazing fruit with vitamine E  and “good” fats for your skin and body babe! 😀
  • Flax seed. It is called the new wonder food, some studies show that it can help combat  diseases. It contains other healthy vitamins and minerals: Omega 3, lignans and fibre. We always put some flax seeds over our porridge…delish!

Porridge and Cherries

  • Brown rice. It is better for you than white rice, in appearance white rice may look more appealing but brown rice is richer in fibre, magnesium, potassium, proteins and calcium, they lose most of these properties when they are refined. We also think brown rice is more tasty. High carb diet, yay!
  • Nuts. We have already talked about their awesome benefits. Nuts are a source of energy we need everyday. Excelent for your brain. Can you ask for more?
  • Bananas. The principal ingredient of our Nana Ice Cream. Very nutritional and very delicious. Nom nom.

_MG_2011

  • Cherries. One of our favourite berries. They boost your energy levels, they are good for your sight, have anti-inflamatory properties and help you sleep better.
  • Watermelon. We have eaten tons of this fruit this summer. It provides us with antioxidants, hydrates us and it’s easy to digest.

Irene and watermelon

¡Hooola a todos!

Después de las vacaciones, por fin hemos vuelto con las pilas cargadas! Este verano ha sido un poco diferente a lo esperado y las vacaciones nos han ayudado a pensar un poquito en nuestros planes de futuro y metas. De momento, vamos a empezar Septiembre con energías positivas, ideas nuevas y buen humor 🙂

Queremos hablar sobre la importancia de comer de la forma más natural posible y con productos de calidad. Nosotras seguimos una dieta vegetariana cargada de verduras, frutas y productos de integrales, pero no quiere decir que de vez en cuando tengamos unas ganas tremendas de comernos un trozo de tarta. Eso si, casi siempre intentamos hacerlo nosotras, eligiendo los ingredientes que queremos y tratando de hacerlo lo más “healthy” posible 😉

Recomendamos comprar productos orgánicos que, a pesar de ser un poco más caros, tienen un sabor mucho más real y sus calidad es también mejor. Tu bolsillo lo notará un poquito, pero tu cuerpo también lo hará, y comenzará a sentirse mejor tanto por dentro como por fuera 🙂

Nosotras nos hemos unido a la tendencia del “Mood Food”, la cual defiende que ciertos alimentos influyen en nuestro estado de ánimo. La fruta, por ejemplo, es una fuente de optimismo. Mientras que el consumo de alimentos procesados, con mucho azúcar y toxinas provocan insatisfacción y depresión. ¡Sigue la dieta de la felicidad!

Cherries

Como ya sabéis, intentamos seguir una dieta equilibrada. Aquí os dejamos algunos de nuestros productos favoritos:

  • Agua: Sí, agua. Cada mañana intentamos tomar en ayunas un vaso de agua con un limón exprimido. Esto no es nada nuevo, pero es claramente una forma genial de empezar el día, ya que es un perfecto diurético natural, ayuda a la digestión, mejora tu piel y ayuda a la pérdida de peso.
  • Aguacate: Ya sabéis que nos encantan. Esta fruta es magnífica debido a su alto contenido en vitamina E y a sus grasas buenas.
  • Semillas de lino: Mézclalas con tu yogur favorito o utilízalas para hacer bases de tartas por ejemplo. Algunos estudios  afirman que ayuda a regular la presión y función arterial y ayuda en enfermedades inflamatorias o diabetes, entre otras. Contiene vitaminas y minerales cómo Omega 3, lignanos (sirven como antioxidante) o fibra.
  • Arroz integral: Definitivamente mucho mejor que el blanco. Es rico en fibra, potasio, magnesio, proteínas y calcio.
  • Frutos secos: Son una grande fuente de energía y combinan con taaantas cosas 🙂 Además son muy buenas para tu cerebro.
  • Plátanos: El ingrediente principal de nuestro querido Nana Ice Cream. Rico y nutritivo.
  • Cerezas: Son nuestro fruto rojo favorito. Te dan energía, son buenas para la vista, tienen propiedades anti-inflamatorias y ayudan a conciliar mejor el sueño.
  • Sandía: Este verano hemos comido kilos y kilos de esta deliciosa fruta. Rica en antioxidantes, te hidrata y es muy fácil de digerir.

¡Holi, rollitos de canela!

granola bar 2

Ser vegetarianas implica la necesidad de complementar nuestra dieta con frutos secos, imprescindibles para darnos el aporte de energía necesario diario, ya que hacemos ejercicio habitualmente y no paramos.

Por eso nos encantan los frutos secos, son deliciosos, ricos en proteínas, grasas insaturadas, fibra, minerales y vitaminas, por lo que son beneficiosos para nuestra salud.

Son indispensables para la dieta de cualquier persona que realice esfuerzos físicos o mentales. Además su consumo regular reduce el riesgo cardiovascular.

Flower Veggie Mini Pizza

One of our favorite junk food is pizza, and we make it healthy! How? We told you that we know every single sprout you can find in the supermarket and so we made a pizza base with cauliflower! Can you believe it? A sprout transformation in a delicious and tasty pizza. Of course, is not the crispiest but it’s amazingly good, trust us. Even if you don’t like cauliflower, you should give it a try anyway!

Hi berries! What’s up? How are you doing?

It’s very hot today, Summer is here, and we are very excited waiting for holidays: sun, beach and good things to eat. Summer is in the middle of the year, and we love to have new aims like: do more exercise, meet new people, discover new books, enjoy every moment, laugh a lot and create new veggie recipes like this one we are going to show you now!

One of our favorite junk food is pizza, and we make it healthy! How? We told you that we know every single sprout you can find in the supermarket and so we made a pizza base with cauliflower! Can you believe it? A sprout transformation in a delicious and tasty pizza. Of course, is not the crispiest but it’s amazingly good, trust us. Even if you don’t like cauliflower, you should give it a try anyway!

It takes time to make the pizza, maybe 1 hour and a half, but it’s worth it. Since we have a plant based diet, we notice that we feel great. Remember is important to nourish your body, with healthy stuff. Eat better, feel better!

Cauliflower Veggie Mini Pizza Recipe:

Ingredients

– 1 medium cauliflower.

– 1 egg.

– 1/3 cup of whole flour.

– 10 raw almonds.

– a pinch of salt.

To put on top:

– Homemade tomato sauce (Use 4 or 5 tomatoes, then peel it and crush it with a blender, leave it in a saucepan until it is reduced).

– Fresh mozarrella.

– The veggies you like (we put asparagus and some cherry tomatoes).

– Some basil.

– Extra virgin olive oil.

pizzza 3

Preparation

There 3 different stages you need to follow to make this pizza: boiling the cauliflower, making the dough and making the pizza.

1. Cooking the cauliflower: Wash it properly and cut it in small chunks or use a food processor. Place them in a baking tray with baking paper underneath and grill it for around 20-30 min at 170 C. You can also just cook it in the microwave, it is faster. We prefer the oven though. Once it is ready, let it cool down and take out all the water with a clean kitchen rag.

2. Cauliflower dough: Once the cauliflower is drained, place it in a food processor with the egg, the almonds, the flour and a pinch of salt and blend it all together. Put the dough in the baking tray and make the form of the mini pizzas. 180º C for 20 minutes.

3. Make the rest of the pizza: Once the dough is made, just put the tomato sauce, the fresh mozzarella and all the ingredients that you like. Put it in the oven again for just 15 min.

Once they are ready you can serve them with some basil leaves and a bit of extra virgin olive oil on top. It’s just amaaaazing 😀

Enjoy your day!

¡Hola Bayas! ¿Como estáis?

El verano ya está aquí y viene pegando fuerte… ¡Vaya calorcito! Así que estamos ansiosas esperando las vacaciones: sol, playa y cosas ricas y frescas para comer. Queremos enseñaros esta receta que nos decidimos a probar el otro día, el resultado genial y por eso queremos compartirlo con vosotros. ¡Os va a encantar!

Una de nuestras comidas favoritas es la pizza, así que hemos decidido hacer de ella una versión mas saludable. ¿Cómo? ¡Haciendo la base de coliflor! Sí, como lo oyes, pizza con base de coliflor! No te asustes si no eres muy amigo de la familia de las coles. Aun asi te recomendamos que lo pruebes. ¡No te va a defraudar!

pizza

Ingredientes

– 1 coliflor mediana.

– 1 huevo.

– 50 gramos de harina integral.

– 10 almendras crudas.

– una pizca de sal.

Para poner sobre la base:

– Salsa de tomate (pela y parte 5 tomates, ponlos en una cazuela y déjalos reducir)

– Mozzarella fresca.

– Verduras al gusto (calabacin, pimiento, esparragos, berenjena, espinacas…)

– Hojas de albahaca.

– Aceite de oliva virgen extra.

Preparación

Hay tres etapas para hacer esta pizza: cocinar la coliflor, hacer la base de la coliflor y hacer la pizza.

1. Preparar la coliflor: Lavar bien la coliflor, cortarla en trocitos pequeños o utilizar un procesador de alimentos, ponerlo todo sobre una bandeja con papel de horno y dejar hornear 170º unos 20-30 min hasta que se quede hecho. Puedes hacerlo también en el microndas y tardaras mucho menos (aunque no somos muy amigas del microndas). Dejar enfriar un poco y escurrir la coliflor con gasas de farmacia o con un trapo limpio.

2. Hacer la base de la coliflor: Una vez escurrida, mezclar con el huevo, las almendras crudas y la harina para que se quede la masa mas compacta y una pizca de sal. Para ello lo trituramos todo con una batidora. Poner otra vez sobre la bandeja y un papel de horno nuevo la pasta de las mini pizzas haciendo su forma con la ayuda de una cuchara. Dejar en el horno a 180ºC  unos 20 minutos, cuando estén hechas sacar la bandeja.

3. Preparar las pizzas: Una vez hechas las bases poner encima los ingredientes que preieras. La salsa de tomate, la mozarrella fresca y las verduras que más te gusten. Meter otra vez en el horno unos 15 minutos.

Cuando las saques del horno, las puedes servir con albahaca fresca y un chorrito de aceite de oliva virgen extra. El resultado es fantástico, están ricas ricas. Hemos disfrutado desde el primer mordisco y estábamos deseando que no acabaran nunca. Pero todo lo bueno se acaba. ¿Te atreves a probarlas?
