Tagiatelle with avocado and spinach

Flat belly till summer? haha so it is time to start clean eating! for the first day of spring I propose light and easy to prepare Tagiatelle with avocado and spinach.

Have you ever heard about¬†clean eating? I am sure you have, if not I will shortly explain. Literally it means clean eating, simple meals. It aims to eat unprocessed and lowfat products or naturally fatty products such as nuts, avocado etc. I have to admint that for past few weeks I wasnt¬†not doing that. Luckily the first day of Spring made me do it again. More about clean eating you can find in Colin T Campbel “The China Study” book. I heartily recomend it. In a week you should see not only your weight loss, but also improved taste and smell perception.

Vegan doughnuts

Do not be scared of donuts and do them by yourself and you will never ever buy them again. Before you start go and buy rose jam!

For the first time I have made them few weeks ago. I had no idea how to start. I was thinking that they are difficult to prepare. In fact there were easy, because it is just yeast cake! The most important thing is to spume yeast very well. For that you need lot of warmth and sugar. It must be sugar, not xylitol. Xylitol is alkaline, so yeast will not start. How to give enough warmth? I have genius solution for that, which I got from my dad. You just need to place bowl in warm oven and just see it IMG_0225 IMG_0231 IMG_0234 (2) IMG_0237 (2)

The best homemade nutella

Full of hazelnuts real and the best homemade nutella which you can make by yourself at home. 

I was making many differen chocolate spreads:

Honestly usually they were made on the go, when I actually needed any chocolate spread. Of course all of them were deliciously chocolate, but none of them was like nutella. The true is that I do not want to copy nutella, because that is not the point. Nutella is not the healthiest product, but hazenutsts win this game! Thankfully to them ( if not their aroma ) nutella has this nutty taste. This is why my homemade nutella is the best of the bests. It is full of nuts, but has to be made calmly and slowly. Do not skip any ingredient, what is more do not substitute any one of them.
