Swanocean: Whole wheat apple cinnamon cake-Κέικ ολικής άλεσης με μήλο και κανέλα

Whole wheat apple cinnamon cake-Κέικ ολικής άλεσης με μήλο και κανέλα

I love fall. I love the colors, the smells, the red leaves, the apples, the smell of the wet ground, the rain, the cloudy days. I can say so many things I love about fall. It is a season quite misunderstood and it wasn't until recently that I evaluated on another view. Now I can say that it is my favorite season. To see nature change and evolve. Λατρεύω το φθινόπωρο. Λατρεύω τα χρώματα, τις μυρωδιές, τα κόκκινα φύλλα, τα μήλα, την μυρωδιά του βρεγμένου χώματος, την βροχή, τις συννεφιασμένες…

Swanocean: Healthy chunky nutella-Υγιεινή νουτέλα με κομμάτια

Healthy chunky nutella-Υγιεινή νουτέλα με κομμάτια

I don't think there is anyone on this planet that doesn't like nutella. Ok some may not but most can't resist to the sight of it like we do. Especially when it is homemade without the unnecessary add-ons and the preservatives and the bunch of sugar, the consumption is not so much as a sin. Δεν νομίζω ότι υπάρχει κάποιος σ'αυτόν τον πλανήτη που δεν του αρέσει η νουτέλα. Εντάξει κάποιοι μπορεί όχι αλλά οι περισσότεροι δεν μπορούν να αντισταθούν στην θέα της όπως εμείς. Ειδικά όταν είναι…

Swanocean: Gluten free raisins & nuts muffins-Muffins με ξηρούς καρπούς και σταφίδες χωρίς γλουτένη

Gluten free raisins & nuts muffins-Muffins με ξηρούς καρπούς και σταφίδες χωρίς γλουτένη

In this family we are big fan of raisins and nuts and we use them in our food whenever we can. Raisins and nuts are loaded with iron and rich in fiber while some of them contain magnesium, vitamin e and others. No wonder we use them so much either in snack bags to take on the go either inside food like muffins, salads or desserts. Σ'αυτή την οικογένεια είμαστε μεγάλοι οπαδοί των σταφίδων και των ξηρών καρπών και τα χρησιμοποιούμε μέσα στο φαγητό όμως όποτε μπορούμε. Οι σταφίδες κι οι ξηροί…

Roundup: Easy and healthy snacks-Εύκολα και υγιεινά σνακ

Planning the meals of the week is a headache for every woman working or not, not to mention the actual time you need to prepare those meals. This is a major fact when choosing the meals for my family, to be quick and easy to prepare them. Snacks is another headache especially when trying to have a healthy lifestyle. As a family we have decided to reduce the store bought snacks and try to make as much as we can by ourselves. So they definitely have to be easy and quick to prepare them from…

Honey sugar free oat raisin bars-Μπάρες βρώμης με μέλι και σταφίδες χωρίς ζάχαρη

While I am the type of person that breakfast is a major piece of my healthy lifestyle I can't ignore the significance of other meals. I have come up to the conclusion that following a healthy diet it is easier to make healthy choices on your lunch and dinner and even more easier to prepare them but when it comes to the snacks things can go wrong. Even though snacks are less significant they are also important to achieve your goal. Because no matter how hard you try to eat healthy lunch and…

Tips for healthier life-Συμβουλές για υγιεινή ζωή

Being healthy sometimes is quite tricky. After one year of deciding to follow a healthier lifestyle I have learned so many things through my fails and wins.

Let me notice that every human being has its own needs and what is suitable for me for someone else is not. Listen to your body and mind and find out what is best for you. No, sugar is not making you good even though it makes you feel good…

Healthy sugar free cherry pie-Υγιεινή κερασόπιτα χωρίς ζάχαρη

Do you know what is better than pie? Cherry pie! And better than cherry pie is a healthy cherry pie. You deserve to eat your piece of pie but you owe yourself to stay healthy and avoid sugar as much as possible. The moment I finish my lunch it hits me and I need desperately something sweet. I don't have the power to avoid it everyday, so I let myself indulge every now and then. And when I do I try to make healthier choices. One of these is this amazing sugar free cherry pie. Ξέρετε τι είναι…

Gluten free cheese muffins-Μάφινς με τυρί χωρίς γλουτένη

When you think of muffins you tend to think of a sweet maybe chocolate muffin? Me too yes but recently I discovered the magic of savory muffins. Cheese is one of my favorite food in many forms and muffins are one of the most practical ways to have a snack on the go. When all these come together along with gluten free I couldn't have asked more. Όταν σκέφτεσαι τα muffins τείνεις να σκέφεσαι ένα γλυκό ίσως σοκολατένιο muffin? Κι εγώ ναι αλλά μόλις πρόσφατα ανακάλυψα την μαγεία των αλμυρών…

Healthy banana bread-Υγιεινό κέικ μπανάνας

Healthy banana bread-Υγιεινό κέικ μπανάνας

Banana was always one of my favorite fruits and my little ones love it. I think that it is the most acceptable fruit in the kids' world and we all know how picky they can be from time to time. Generally, I'm pretty lucky to say that my kiddos like fruits and I have almost no complains when I give them as a snack. Sometimes they even ask for it. Ok not all fruits but the most common. Adding fruits in snacks is surely a plus for those who are a little bit weird. This banana bread is the…

Homemade chocolate nut bars-Σπιτικές σοκολατένιες μπάρες με ξηρούς καρπούς

Once upon a time while I was shopping for healthy bars my eyes came across to the ingredients. What? There were so many ingredients unknown (some of them I couldn't even spell) and of course so much sugar. But I wanted them healthy remember? I think that was the last time I ever bought healthy bars from the supermarket. With a little experimenting you can make your own healthy bars at home without all that unnecessary ingredients and without the loads of sugar. It is easier than you may…

Healthy eating grocery list-Λίστα για ψώνια με υγιεινές τροφές

Before you go for shopping do you make a shopping list? Experts are saying that you should make a list because that way you spend less money as you don't buy things unpurposely. Sometimes I do that and I totally understand as I tend to add things that I wouldn't if I had a list on hand. Anyway while I'm trying to adjust to a healthier lifestyle I have made some changes to my usual shopping list. I prefer more clean eating products and especially produce that are straight from nature. That…

Whole wheat oat muffins-Muffins ολικής άλεσης με βρώμη

I just love the mornings that I don't need to prepare my breakfast and believe me I can't make it throughout the day without breakfast. It is your fuel to fill your daily tasks so never forget it. Fortunately my kids are fanatic with breakfast as much as I do. If only I had my mom too to prepare it for me and bring it on the table. Just kidding. So how about some breakfast muffins ready to be eaten? Now you don't have any excuse if you are late on work, you just grab one or two or three and…

Gluten free oat muffins with sesame spread-Muffins βρώμης με ταχίνι χωρίς γλουτένη

Although I have not celiac disease, I have some sensitivity to gluten and sometimes it is hard for me to digest foods. Especially when I'm anxious or nervous. I do try to eat gluten free foods but not strictly. Some may say it is a health fashion some other may say it is not. Well I know for sure that reducing gluten in my diet has relieved from some health issues that couldn't find a solution before. Going gluten free doesn't mean going without taste. For example these gluten free oat…
