I love making my own healthy sauces, dips and dressings!
I know exactly what the ingredients are and I can play with the flavour profiles to match my mood or the other items on the menu.
With my herb garden growing wild these days, I was somewhat forced to do something with the extra basil and arugula.
Arugula pesto!!! Healthy and delicious, it’s a must-have for the summer!
You can use it salads, pasta dishes, sandwiches, pizza or just mix it with other dips.
A staple in Mediterranean cuisine, pesto traditionally contains basil, garlic, pine nuts, olive oil and Parmigiano Reggiano.
I added arugula for a punch of antioxidants and vitamins!

The recipe is simple and quick:
2 cups arugula leaves, stemmed
1 cup basil leaves
2 garlic cloves
2-3 tbsp pine nuts (can substitute walnuts or almonds)
1/2 cup EVOO
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan (can substitute nutritional yeast for a vegan version)
I add everything to my food processor in the following order: garlic, pine nuts, pulse...add arugula and salt, pulse. Add basil and pulse again. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil and process for another 30-40 seconds or until you reach the desired consistency.
Add the cheese and mix well. Enjoy!

Tropical breakfast! 🌴Smoothie bowl with dragonfruit, mango, pineapple, coconut, frozen cauliflower and almond milk.
Topped with blackberries, açai, crushed almonds, chia seeds and rose petals.

The “cherry on top” is actually an edible Damascus Rose, the Queen of Roses grown in Turkey since 1820 and one of the most beautiful flowers on the planet.

Thank you 🙏 @akitarosewater - see? I am using them wisely 🥀💖

Vegetarian grazing trays!
I’ve created these to order, for clients celebrating a birthday a couple of days ago!

It was fun and stimulating to come up with the perfect cheese & fruit pairings. And some interesting home-made dips, both sweet and savoury.
I was happy to use specialty and artisan cheeses like Basiron lavender Gouda, Coeur aux Fleur chèvre, passion fruit Stilton and goat Brie - all from @jadorefinecheese!!! 🙏
And of course a variety of fruit and chocolate and outstanding macarons straight from France @gourmetmacarons.

The perfect gift for a birthday, graduation or any other celebration.
Contact me and let’s chat if you’d like to try one this summer!! 😃

Another dip (sauce) made with love and fresh ingredients!
I finally found some tomatillos to be able to make this Salsa Verde to accompany our fish tacos.
Made two different batches this time: one traditional and the other with added avocado for a creamier texture.
Wow, I wish you could taste them!! 😋😋
Delicioso!!

There’s few salads I enjoy more than a classic Tabouleh, featuring my favourite Mediterranean herb: Parsley (along with its sister cilantro).

Parsley as a healing herb has been used for thousands of years to help with gas, bloating, constipation, anemia, bad breath, skin problems, kidney stones and more.
A powerful detoxification agent, high in antioxidants, vitamins A,C,K, and folate, it can be added to a variety of dishes such as soups, spreads, marinades, dips, salads and smoothies to enhance flavour and the nutritive properties of foods.

Classic Tabouleh is made with fresh parsley, tomatoes, mint, onion, lemon juice and cracked bulgur wheat, an ancient grain dating back to circa 2800 B.C.
While bulgur was once considered a sacred food (in Babylonian times) and it’s certainly high in fiber and protein, today those who are trying to maintain a gluten-free diet can use millet, quinoa or teff instead.

To make this salad I used a combination of parsley, cilantro, mint and baby arugula and used hulled millet as my grain of choice.

This amazing place we call Home! 🌏
Today we celebrate Earth Day and I think we should do this every day, through our actions, inter-actions, choices and increasing our awareness.

Like Bucky Fuller used to say...
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old one obsolete.”

What are you doing today to support positive change and send a message of love to our Mother Earth?
Even if it’s one less plastic bottle you’re using, that’s a good start.

As part of the ‘Spring Cleanse Your Body’ program we are running this week, I’ve adapted one of the recipes to include more protein and help us deal with some of the expected detoxification reactions we’ve seen in the group (tiredness being the main one).
It’s all good and we’re on the right track!

People are loving the recipes so I thought I’d share my take on this quinoa salad:

- quinoa, cooked
- organic mini black beans
- roasted sweet potatoes
- “massaged” purple kale
- red grapefruit slices
- mint leaves
- cilantro (coriander)
- parsley
- lemon juice
- EVOO
- sea salt
- fresh basil as garnish

It is absolutely delicious, refreshing and satiating! I could have eaten the whole bowl!! Try it and let me know how you like it!

Maybe you want to increase your energy or sleep better or eliminate those food craving or shed some pounds this spring...Maybe you’re considering doing a cleanse or a detox.
All I’m going to say is: Just. Eat. Real. Food!

Do yourself and your body a favour and skip those extreme detoxes that restrict you to only a handful of ingredients and deprive your body of essential nutrients.

While some of these detoxes, shakes and bars sound convenient, I suggest you stick to whole, natural foods that are made by Mother Nature and not in a lab.

Seriously, making a smoothie or a smoothie bowl can only take 5-10 minutes and the advantage is you know exactly what went into it!

Pictured here is my açai-dragon fruit-coconut smoothie bowl:

1 frozen banana
1 cup dragon fruit
1/4 coconut milk full fat
2,3 frozen cauliflower florets
1 tbsp Açai powder

Toppings: açai, fresh fruit, nuts and seeds, cacao nibs... you choose!

These are the types of foods we’ll be eating next week during the Spring Cleanse.
There’s still time to join us.
We already have a robust group of people who are ready to start!

You'll often hear me tell my clients to eat more leafy greens. These nutrient-dense superfoods are packed with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients like Chlorophyll.

We all know that Chlorophyll is what gives plants their green colour.

But did you know that Chlorophyll is in fact “the blood of plants”?
In fact there is a striking chemical and molecular similarity between Chlorophyll and Hemoglobin, which prompted scientists to investigate the blood regeneration effects of this green pigment, when added to diet.

I have personally witnessed the effects of Chlorophyll on my clients’ blood through live blood analysis (image 2 = oxygenated blood/image 3 = clumped, oxygen-deprived blood).

This is why we decided to run a Spring Cleanse based mainly on green juices, smoothies and salads for all of next week. We are really passionate about what we do and want to share it all with you! 🌷

All that chlorophyll will:
✅ cleanse, oxygenate and build your blood
✅ help slow and reduce the aging of your cells
✅ improve your liver function
✅ neutralize free radicals and promote cellular health
✅ promote healthy intestinal flora
✅ help skin disorders
✅ increase your energy

If you’re ready to feel refreshed and energized, I invite you to join us. I promise you won’t regret it! 🍋🥒🥕

As always, feel free to pm me if you have any questions.

So why cleanse our bodies once in a while?
Well, because even if we do our best with our diets and our homes, we still get exposed to environmental toxins from the air we breathe, the water we drink and the foods we eat. Our bodies can handle some of it, but once it gets overwhelmed and the liver has too much work to do, we start feeling sluggish, tired and stressed.

That’s when it’s time to lighten the load and do some internal cleansing!

By switching to smoothies, juices and light meals as our main sources of nutrients for a few days, we take the pressure off our digestive system and the main organs of detoxification in the body: the liver, the colon and the kidney.

The juices provide an instant nutrient boost and support the liver to do its job.

The smoothies provide fiber which helps swipe the intestine clean, keeps the bowels regular and helps move the toxins out of the body once they’ve been processed by the liver.

Our 7-day Spring Cleanse comes with delicious and nutritious smoothie, juices and light meal recipes, grocery lists, guidance and coaching offered in a private FB group and live interaction with the participants.
You get to ask your questions, and we Linda and Crina @linda_ljucovic and @gourmet.nutritionista are here to answer them and guide you through the cleanse safely and successfully.

We also have an option for you to purchase the juices/smoothies if you don’t have time to make them. Stay tuned for more info.

With the arrival of spring it is the ideal time to de-clutter and spring clean the house but it is also the perfect time to do a little cleaning on the inside too!
Just like our house remained closed over the winter months, our body too has been burdened by rich foods, lower amounts of vitamins, less water, a more sedentary lifestyle and more stress.

So while you are opening your doors and windows to air out the house, take a deep breath and think of doing the same for your body.

Our 7-day Spring Cleanse launching April 18 is the ideal way to cleanse! We offer tried and tested methods and delicious juice, smoothie and light meal recipes, community support and coaching by two experienced nutritionists, Linda Ljucovic and myself.
