Nowadays it’s really popular to have healthy meals but a lot of people think that healthy food doesn’t taste good. This is usually thought because the idea they have of vegetables:   something without flavor. However, if you learn how to prepare them eating healthy food  won’t seem so painful anymore. That’s the reason why today I’m going to show you some healthy meals that are tasty and easy to prepare.

Greek Yogurt Parfait

This yogurt is perfect for breakfast or as a snack during the afternoon. It’s really fresh, it will give you a lot of energy and you will only need 5 minutes to prepare it. You’ll just need greek yogurt, fruit ( your choice), puffed rice, and nuts.

Quinoa Dish

Quinoa is one of the trendiest foods right now. This whole grain has a lot of protein and fiber, which are important for our system. You can have it as if it was rice, mixed with beans, vegetables, or even fruit. This dish would be a great meal for lunch.

Nowadays, we buy fruits and vegetables but we do not know where they come from or how they have been grown up: if they have used any fertilized or non-authorized poison, if the workers are fairly paid, and so on. Do we know what we eat?

A good alternative is to cultivate your own orchard in your house. No much space is necessary, even if you live in a big city. Moreover, you can full your larder with products from ecological shops.

According to some studies, working with the land take you in contact with nature and benefits your health, it allows you to burn the same calories as thirty minutes of aerobics. A study conducted in 2011 in Holland, quoted in an article by CNN Health, half an hour dedicated to cultivate a garden, can significantly reduce your levels of cortisol, the stress hormone produced.

Do you remember the smell of oranges, apples, strawberries? When you taste ecological food or cultivated by yourself, you realize the difference, you rediscover the yummy fruits.

My personal experience in growing small gardens has been very positive and today I have planted several lettuce and spices and my meals are better with them. I encourage you to grow up your own orchard and enjoy it.
