Avocado is a 'generous' fruit, which provides over 20 different nutrients in just one serving (1/3 of the avocado) (Harvard, 2018). Most of these nutrients are especially good for supporting your heart and lowering down LDL cholesterol levels. But avocado is also very...

'Mendiants' - are traditional French chocolates, like mini-chocolate disks, topped with nuts and dry fruit. The French love to make and eat them around Christmas time, but I eat them all year round :)! No surprise - they are just so crunchy and yummy... and the chocola...

If only you could see the sky today! Its vibrant blue colour with white flaky clouds is so beautiful and romantic. These are not the angry winter clouds, ready to burst all their sadness on top of you... no-no... They have been replaced by new, playful and cheerful one...

Hello Spring! Hello, the Sun and the noisy birds! I wish I could steal a little piece of the Sun so that it stays inside of me forever. Luckily, nature has created delicious and sunny mangos and bananas, which are full of vitamins, nutrients and lots of warmth from the...
