Recently, I found myself bombarded with this grim statement: “healthy eating is a privilege of the rich”. Even though I already suspected it, just knowing for a fact that I can't afford to eat as healthy as I wished made me a bit sad.
Don't speak to me before my morning coffee, please. Before my first cup of coffee I'm still asleep and very grumpy, but as soon as I drink it, my mood begins to rise. Being the most popular drink in the world, coffee has been considered both a bad habit and a healthy choice. Recently, scientists have been able to change our perception about coffee and given this old beverage a fresh new look.
I've been making recently my very own homemade granola, perfectly customized and not overly sweet. It keeps me satisfied for a long time and helps curb my sugar cravings. Why making it instead of buying it? Well, commercial brands tend to be too sweet and the labels indicate large amounts of fat and sodium. Also, being able to customize my granola keeps me interested in it.
Eggs have been a passion for me all my life. The possibilities are endless: scrambled, fried, hard-boiled, poached, omelettes, etc. Packed with nutrients, eggs are also a good source of protein and can be eaten at any time of the day. From simple scrambled eggs to eggs Benedict, there is a dish for everyone and every taste.
