Healthy Pudding

I'm still obsessed with my healthy pudding recipe and I improved upon it yesterday for breakfast. It's great eating raw for breakfast. It's gentle on your system and gives you a healthy start to the day. Sometimes I want to combine healthy with sweet so a smoothie or a big bowl of oatmeal is good. But when you want to feel like you're eating something but something that is not cooked, pudding is a great way to go.

I think avocado makes the pudding just the perfect consistency. It isn't too water and makes it thick and rich. I used an avocado plus two more fruits. You can also use chia seeds in this pudding for a final touch.

Improved choco pudding:
2 tbsp of cacao powder
1 small avocado
1 ripe banana
2 tbsp of maple syrup
2 pitted medjool dates
2 tbsp of chia seeds (optional)

In your food processor, add everything except the chia seeds. Process on high, taste and add more chocolate or maple syrup if needed. Add the chia seeds last and refrigerated to allow the seeds to absorb some moisture. Have a very happy breakfast :)

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
