happy girls are the prettiest

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

Italian Style French Toast

Remember last week’s panettone brunch post? Today little hint of what you can do with the leftovers (if there are any haha). Delicious french toasts made of panettone slices instead of the bread slices is definitely something you will fall in love with!
All you have to do is to take the panettone pieces, spread them with slightly beaten egg and coat them with sugar. Then, fry on a normal size pan, add some seasonfruit and voila!

Chia Seed Parfait

Chia is known as one of the superfoods, because it contains so many valuable macros. A standard 2 tbsp (24 g) serving of chia seeds contains:

  • calories: 117,
  • protein: 4g,
  • fat: 7.4g,
  • fiber: 8.3g.

It contains all eight essential amino acids and a host of trace minerals and micronutrients. To put it in easy comparative terms, each 2 tbsp serving of chia offers:

  •     Five times the omega-3 content of a 1/4-cup serving of walnuts;
  •     Twice the iron and magnesium of a cup of spinach;
  •     As much calcium as a half-cup of milk;
  •     As much potassium as a third of a banana;
  •     More than twice the fiber of a cup of oatmeal.

To make chia tasty and soften it a little, soak it in coconut milk in the evening and leave it overnight. It will be thick like yogurt and it will taste really good.  To make my breakfast parfait I made mango pure and inserted it into a veck jar, then covered it with my coconut chia mixture and to finish it up, I put some strawberries and kiwi pieces on top.
It made me full for so many hours and it was so good!
It can be all prepared the night before as a to-go snack or as a breakfast in a hurry.

Summer Blueberry Smoothie

Great for a hot, sunny morning. Really, I mean r e a l l y easy and r e a l l y delicious breakfast idea.
To make this beautiful and tasty smoothie, you’ll have to take some pre-frozen blueberries (they’ll taste much better if you freeze them by your own than if you buy them frozen at the grocery store) and blend them with oat milk. It will be quite nutritious and very very good!

Peanut Butter Sandwiches

As you may already know, we make a lot of foods at home. So, I’d like to tell you about homemade peanut butter spread on the homemade rye bread slices. All sprinkled with dried crunberries and sunflower seeds.
To make homemade peanut butter you’ll need 500g slightly roasted (not fried – very very important) or raw peanuts, 1 tsp of sugar and 1/4 tsp of salt. All you have to do is to place all the ingredients in a blender and wait for the creamy heaven. Depending on what you’d like your butter to be, you can mix it until very very creamy or you can add somy crushed peanuts to make it crunchy.

Carrot and Zucchini Muffins and Puff Pastry Rolls

If it’s raining outside or if the weather’s a little chilly, it’s a great idea to bake ourselves some breakfast pastries. Here, I present carrot walnut muffins, which are made from zwidokiemnasol.pl ‘s recipe, zucchii muffins also form this blog and puff pastry rolls, which are basically puff pastry, I used premade by Blikle bakery, stuffed with chocolate, fruit marmolade and, as a salty version, with cabbage filling.

April Celebrations

As may has begun I’d like to sum up april and all the events which took place around this month. April, as I consider it, is a month of sun, flowers and a very festive mood.
There were quite a few family meetings with lots of roses and delicious foods up there. I would like to thank you for all the wonderful moments of the month that has just passed.
Also I would like to mention a  h u g e thank you to my dear friends who organized a  birthday party for me, which was just so amazing. I was stunned and I’m sure I will never forget this day. F.r.i.e.n.d.s themed cake and gorgeus presents were absolutely fantastic. Thank you all so much one more time and I’d just like to say that I think I have the best friends I could possibly imagine or wish for.
