EASY VEGGIE SKEWERS

Hello beautiful people!

As you may have noticed, I have a thing for skewers these days. They are the easiest way to transform your veggies - or fruits - into yummy snacks for any occasion! Plus, they look so beautiful and colorful. Click read more for easy ideas and preparation tips. 

Options are endless, and it takes only a couple of minutes to put them together. My go to are cherry and grape tomatoes. They come in different colors and easily pair with cheese and other vegetables. Another great addition are those tiny mozzarella cheese balls. If you see them at the supermarket, get them! I'm sure you will find a way to use them. 

Caprese skewers are my absolute favorite classic, specially with some fig balsamic vinegar on top (mmm!). I made this in 5 minutes or less. They look great and taste better!

If you are feeling more adventurous, you can roast your veggies before making the skewers. Broccoli, butternut squash and grape tomatoes make a great combo; and can be paired with some spicy peanut sauce for extra deliciousness.

Top them with olive oil, salt and pepper. Then, roast them in the oven (400F) for 20-30 minutes. They will shrink a little bit, which will make the skewer's preparation easier.

Cooked or raw, give your veggies a try! They are good for your health - and for your pocket, specially if you buy them in bulk. So, do you have any other ideas for easy skewers? Share them with us! I would love to try them all :)

Healthy Breakfast

Happy Monday, people!

I hope all of you had 1. A great weekend, and 2. Time to enjoy breakfast this morning. I know, sometimes one has to leave the house in a rush, but hey! If you have 3 extra minutes you can make this happen:

  • 1 cup of papaya
  • 2 tbsp of plain or greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp of honey

If you want to add energy to your breakfast, sprinkle some sesame seeds on top. Delicious!
