This month #letseat: avocado

Recently, on Instagram I shared a great idea for lunch: burritos. The key ingredient of burritos is certainly guacamole sauce, which is made up of a favorite of many – avocado. If you use avocado frequently in your diet, I believe that you already have your system where to find a good avocado, how to choose it, because we all know that to find a good avocado is really an endeavor in our market.

This month #letseat: passion fruit

I put a lot of effort to choose what to eat this month, in a season rich with citrus fruit and my favorite red oranges. However, due to a somewhat less frequent use of passion fruit in our kitchen, I decided to write about this fruit. Also, tropical fruits have been announced as one of the food trends in 2019. What is interesting is that the name of the fruit itself does not relate to the emotion of passion.

The goal is to find out more about the groceries we can buy in the season, but at the same time we are not used to preparing them or maybe we do not know how to use it in everyday cooking. New Year seems to be ideal with enriching our diet, right? In January parsnips is in season. In the period of the Roman Empire, parsnips or...

In season: December

Are you already in the holiday mood? In December, we usually relax and all foods, and especially cakes, are especially appealing to us. But believe it or not in the season in December there are some very healthy foods. In December, seasonal foods are: kale, turnip, clementines and pineapple. It seems as kale is always the talk of the town. I wrote about it in the text about super foods. You can serve the kale as a side dish, shortly boiled or sautéed with garlic. It goes well with soy sauce and nuts. Chestnuts are still there, so you...
