I’m a big fan of salads combining fruits, vegetables and cheese. I could eat them every day. When you’re having guests and you want to prepare something different from the usual green salad, this could work very well as a good-looking, tasty and not your everyday starter dish. There’s not much work with it either, ready in 15 minutes. The …

In Foodie Meby eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I normally have this in the freezer all the time, for Bobcat and for the days when he’s extra picky and won’t eat anything substantial. Pasta can always come. So it’s a good idea to add as much healthy and nutritious ingredients to a pasta dish as you can. Very simple to prepare, a real comfort food for him. If …

Rich Lentil Soup – One Pot Super Meal

In Foodie Meby eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I love rich, hearty, almost stewy soups, without meat of course. I’m talking about the ones you could enjoy with a piece of crusty bread and some red wine on a cold day. This lentil soup is like that. Lots of vegetables, some hot chili and green spices. Lentil is a core vegetarian ingredient in my view. Rich in fibre, folate, iron …

In Green & Ethical Living, Lifeby eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

When my son was diagnosed with eczema, I got really scared. It was mild, but we didn’t know (still don’t) what was the cause, so it was hard to figure it out how to control it.

I assume – dear reader – you feel the same way after all the holiday celebrations: not only that you ate a lot in the last 2 weeks, but lots of sugary, greasy or meaty things.

Easy Creamy Carrot Soup With Ginger

In Foodie Meby eva.katona@yahoo.com3 Comments

Winter time is soup time for me, I love all kinds of veggie loaded clear or creamy soups. They are also a great way to put more vegetables on the dinner table.
