Yummy omnoms

As some people may already know, I love healthy foodies! Lately I've been on a true health kick again and did quite some research on powerfruits, healthy snacks, substitutes and whatnot. Let me share some of my favorite findings with you c:
Snack: sun dried apricots
These delicious little things are high in fiber, are good for your eyes and skin and are a great source for iron! And they just taste really good (which of course is kind of important too).
I also still want to try dried mango and other dried fruits, but one thing at a time..

Lunch: Spinach Smoothies
Until yesterday I always had quite a hard time figuring out what would be my ideal lunch. Before I always used to have either bread or cereal, but none of those ever left me satisfied. Little did I know that the solution to all my problems is: raw spinach.

I throw two handfuls of spinach in a blender, add a bunch of chopped up fruit to it (mango, berries, bananas, apples, strawberries.. you name it!) and a bit of yogurt or water. Blend it and it's omnomnom time! I'm seriously stuffed after drinking it and it's also really easy to take with me when I'm away from home.

I'm also loving raw spinach as a base for salads!
Drink: water with lemon and mint
I first tried this last year at my brother's wedding. I never thought water could taste this good. Just take a glass of water, add a slice of lemon and some mint leaves and enjoy.

I hope this was somewhat useful. I'll probably share some more tips like these in the future. Healthy eating doesn't necesserily mean you're munching on carrots all day. It can be delicious and fun.

  1. I love spinach! I'm going to have to try the spinach smoothie as soon as we get some more fruit. All we have now are a few strawberries.
