Buckwheat Crêpe with Raw-tella and Banana

Standard

Buckwheat is one of my favourite ingredients to make breakfast with…and in the shape of a pancake.. well, even better! The ‘Raw’-tella sounds delicious too, and healthy!

You might wonder – what is Raw-tella? Huh? Well, it does sound like “Nutella”, right? The terribly addictive, but unfortunately not so healthy chocolate-hazelnut spread in a jar? The one I used to love to eat from directly with a spoon?? Well, yes, but Raw-tella is the squeaky clean brother of Nutella, because it’s made with unprocessed and simple Superfood ingredients only!

And then, well, there is the crêpe – one of my favorite inventions of the Frensh cuisine! Nowadays, you can find crêpes all-over the world, but probably the best ones are still made in France. Crêpes are perfect anytime of the day – so why not for breakfast as a healthy version, made with buckwheat?

First try: Zucchini Noodles!!

Standard

After reading a lot about this low-carb and very healthy alternative to spaghetti, I bought a julienne peeler and made my very first serving of zucchini noodles!

In Holland zucchini’s are called Courgette, so my husband immediately came up with the name “Courgetti”, the combo of courgette and spaghetti. Not bad.

Anyway, because my husband and kids are away to the North of the country until friday (!) I have the opportunity to try things.

I lived on juices for almost three days, but yesterday evening it was time for some solid – but healthy – food.

On the internet people say the zucchini noodles taste just like spaghetti. Well, they do!

After I used my new peeler to make the noodles, leaving the core of the zucchini untouched, I cooked the noodles in boiling, salted water for about 3 minutes and I drained them.

Meanwhile I made a sauce of tomato and veggie-meatballs, and put this on top of the noodles. Yum!!

Only thing I didn’t do was press or squeeze out any excess fluid; this is neccesary as it turned out, I had to pour out excess water after plating up the dish.

Anyway, a lowcarb, low calorie alternative to pasta!!

Happy 3rd birthday to Morris!!

Standard

Today is my little boy’s 3rd birthday! Time really does fly, I remember too well when he was born. Not a very nice experience I am sad to say. Anyway, I am thankful that Morris is a very happy, healthy and lovely little boy! I love him loads!!

As I always do for my other two children, I made a special birthday cake for Morris. And because Bumba is his favorite character on TV, he wanted a Bumba cake!

On the next few photo’s you can see the original character, how I made the cake, and the result!
