How to style and snack on healthier desserts -Alternative snacking with nuts made interesting with some nice cream!

 

We’ve all heard of how nuts are supposedly a healthier alternative to snacking junk food but we are also at the same time aware of how they can be dull and a little boring at times. What we don’t know is that nuts can be a satisfying snack given their high contained nutrients such as vitamin E, magnesium, and potassium. At the same time also loaded with important macro nutrient like protein. I really don’t want to jump into all the science talk but keeping things in short, I am sharing what I have been snacking on every now and then.

Eating raw is best when it comes to most of the food but let’s admit it. We love that little spark in life and that extra indulgence when it comes to food. I still enjoy that extra indulgence when it comes to food. But having a job like mine requires intense discipline when it comes to food intake. And that’s why I still indulge when it comes to snacking. I pair them with a little bit of nice cream and some goodness of fruits.

Cherry Smoothie

 

Smoothie bowl is now more than just a new favourite or some might have labeled it as an obsession for me but they are actually not just a favourite breakfast or dessert- they’ve officially became a creative outlet much like a canvas to paint my kinda art. I mean the fun to design the top of the bowl is satisfying and really getting my artistic brain cells working hard. I mostly put in a lot of thought from my styling and plating and it is no doubt that desserts and sweet food makes the prettiest appearance. So, the gorgeous toppings aside. The base are the ones that’s really challenging because it is what determines the taste, texture, colour, and most importantly nutritious.

 

Speaking of nutrients, I made a cherry-based smoothie bowl when cherries were in season some time ago. Cherries are known to be loaded with antioxidants and polyphenols that help fight disease, on top of the rich vitamin C and fiber. Being a natural food source of melatonin, which can help to improve sleep, cherries are all rounded essentially good for us. Though, I wouldn’t recommend excessive consumption because they are also fairly high in sugar. Those who followed me through my journey on Instagram would also know that I recommend moderate intakes on top of matching ingredients in all my bowls.

 

Cherry Smoothie Bowl

 

Here is a good tip to mellow the sweet in your smoothie bowls. Use bananas that are slightly under ripe and include some oats for a thicker consistency. Not only that would help with the taste, the oats would give the extra fill to last longer throughout the morning.

 

Enjoy this cherry bowl recipe. And even though I didn’t decorate them much yet when the photos are taken, I include the recommended toppings so maybe you all can try decorating yours and tag me on Instagram?

 

INGREDIENTS
• 2 cups of frozen cherries, pitted
• 1 frozen banana
• 2 Tbs oats
• ¼ cup coconut water

 

Blend everything as smoothie base.

 

Topping
• Bukinis
• Assorted nuts
• Chia seed
• Cherry
• Banana
• Blueberries

Plant based protein in smoothie bowls- Granola Geeks x Soluxe Protein

 

It is becoming obvious now that I’ve been sharing them on insta stories and sometimes on the ig feed. But for those who are still unsure of ways to use proteins simply as meal replacement or to keep you full for a longer time, this is the recipe that would help bring smoothie bowls to a whole new level. I’ve been getting dms and sometimes mails asking me on what’s the best way to add protein to the smoothie bowls when I thought it was something generally known – something I never thought off cause I’ve been casually adding proteins to my fruit bowls for the longest time ever.

 

There are many ways to fuel the morning with clean and nutritional ingredients and adding lots of fruits to it isn’t the healthiest way to start your morning. This is a misconception people have for most of the time and that is why I emphasized a lot on starting the meal with moderate amount of sugar. Adding carbo and protein to your meal is a good way to make sure you start the day with moderation.

Golden Smoothie Bowl with Mango and Orange (Recipe)

 

Mangoes are awesome when it comes the the rice aroma and natural sweetness of the fruit. And while the fruiting season is on, I’ve been having them for breakfast and mid day snacking with granola and nuts most of the time. Mangoes are the only fruit I don’t need to order because we have a mango tree that bears fruits like crazy at every fruiting season. Blended mango juice is great but it doesn’t beat a mango smoothie bowl. Plus, the bowl is obviously aesthetically a whole lot prettier than the glass. Let’s just say I do it for the gram. LOL.

Vege smoothie bowl

 

Ever struggled to eat raw greens? Or getting the little one to consume the nutrition from the greens? This one is a great solution to make sure we have as much greens as possible.

 

1.Vege smoothie bowl  (twinkle stars)

 

We all know the greens are best consumed raw but have always hated the flavour. The easiest way is actually masking the green with aromatic fruit to make the most delicious and nutritional smoothie bowl to start the day clean and stay healthier. When Kellogg’s released their latest breakfast product, I tried introducing it to my niece and made a smoothie bowl to go with the granolas. Topped it with bananas to make it fancier just so she would be convinced to eat it but to my surprise, it was polished in no time!

D’Ark’s Roasted Beetroot Salad inspired, with Panasonic Electric Oven

 

Cooking and meal prepping can be a hassle at times but if you want to serve the best nutrition then nothing beats home cooking dishes. It is a great way to eat healthier and more affordable. But the hassle of cleaning and washing could be another disagreeable thought at times. To offer a break from washing a sink full of pots and pans, why not cook with the oven? This is a dish inspired from my recent visit to D’ark in Bangkok and with a little tweak of ingredients; this could be a good starter or even a great sharing portion if you are throwing a party.

 

1.Citrus beet salad with truffle oil - D’Ark’s Roasted Beetroot Salad inspired, with Panasonic Electric Oven

 

I’m remaking their beetroot salad and although it is simplicity personified, cooking still scream of effort to many people. Fret not; all you need in this recipe is your oven, and a baking pan. You can eat right from the pan to minimise more washing but I love plating my dishes so I don’t mind washing an extra plate. LOL.

 

2.Citrus beet salad with truffle oil - D’Ark’s Roasted Beetroot Salad inspired, with Panasonic Electric Oven

 

The recipe is basically super simple – Baby beets simply roasted to bring out their sweetness need just the barest drench of olive oil and a sprinkling of fresh herbs.

5.Citrus beet salad with truffle oil - D’Ark’s Roasted Beetroot Salad inspired, with Panasonic Electric Oven

 

Ingredients:

 

• 10 baby beets each 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter unpeeled all but 1 inch of tops trimmed, rinse. (Can be subsitude with 1 large beet of approximately 450g, peeled and cut into 1 inch cube size.
• 2 large fresh sage sprigs, plus additional sprigs for garnish, and some thyme
• 1 tablespoons unsalted butter
• 1/4 cup olive oil
• 1 tsp white truffle oil (optional)
• Kyubu orange yogurt Japanese style Cheese Cubes (can be replaced with mild cheddar cheese)

9.Citrus beet salad with truffle oil - D’Ark’s Roasted Beetroot Salad inspired, with Panasonic Electric Oven

 

Serve this with dollop of Greek yogurt, some orange cuts for the extra zesty aroma and a grate of orange zest.

 

Preparation

 

Preheat oven to 200°c. Place beets in roasting pan. Melt butter and add herbs onto the beets. Drizzle olive oil to coat generously and thoroughly before covering pan tightly with foil to roast for about 30 minutes. The new Panasonic Electric Oven NB- H3800SK (RRP: RM 669) comes with double insulated glass door to keep the temperature high internally but does not cause a burn when accidentally touching the door from the outside.

 

6.Citrus beet salad with truffle oil - D’Ark’s Roasted Beetroot Salad inspired, with Panasonic Electric Oven

 

Sprinkle a dash of sea salt, let it cool and serve either on plate with or without garnishing with additional thyme sprigs or directly from the roasting pan. Also drizzle truffle oil to complete this amazing appetizer.

Green but tasty Smoothie Bowl

 

Food intake and energy expenditure are balanced by homeostatic system that maintains our body fat content and this system can be overridden by stressful stimuli, thus the choices of our eating habit at times (aka de-stress with food). I know, I know… binging is bad..

 

A huge portion of our dietary practices are determined by our own decisions, which in turn can also be influenced by limitless number of variables. The most influential variable which happened to also be the biggest obstacle for me is of course the job scope of a food blogger. It would require me to taste and review food from time to time at any and every place, hence I would really have to watch very closely on my food intake to avoid nutritional disease. Being careful with what we eat is probably one of the simplest ways to stay healthy and fit.

 

I practice starting-the-day-clean every morning and I avoid starting the day with any food tasting session. And if I have to be at any food tasting at the first meal of the day, I pick my food very carefully. I try my best to start my day from home and one of my favourite breakfasts is the smoothie bowl. I’ve been posting quick recipe posts on instagram for a while now, but I figure I should be sharing them on the blog as well.

 

Here is one with plenty of greens in it:

 

Ingredient for the smoothie bowl – 1 kiwi, 1 tsp spirulina, half cucumber, 1 apple, 3 tbs instant oats, a handful of spinach
For toppings– banana, pumpkin seed, dried black bean, sunflower seed, chia seed, buckwheat

 

smoothie bowl recipe

 

Always remember this for we are what we eat. Being a food blogger puts me in high risk of nutritional disease but with minimum conscious effort, I am able to maintain a healthy lifestyle whilst enjoying the good food around us.
