Back in June Sanrio came out with their latest “chich” products to their fans – a Hello Kitty branded melon and all have to admit it’s quite kawaii way to get those kids eating more fruits and bring the branding to the next level.

Last week I was again in Sanrio headquarters in Tokyo to see what our mother company is coming out next at Sanrio inhouse Expo and I am glad to tell that soon will be joining that cute melon some other cute and delicious looking fruit with super kawaii packaging. Read More

When you get tired of a (forced by doctor) diet it’s time to get crafty to find a compromise of swapping the traditional morning eggs and Wasa bread for something sweeter – like overnight oats.

Been more than a month that I am allowed just to stick to some selected things and boy I miss my overnight oats and morning oats and some granola and some pancakes with home made fresh strawberry jam..mmm, and some orange juice and fruits…mmm fruits – I miss fruits. sweet temptations. BUT, sticking to my diet and being good, but yesterday had enough and said will try to find a compromise and make my overnight oats this time giving some twist to them – adding some soy milk and chia seeds.

Result was absolutely nice, (super sweet as been skipping everything sweet for so long time that even soy milk was 10 x sweeter than usual) but truly delicious. No official picture, as was too early to get all snappy and everything, but the result is the same as in pictures – good look and yummy.

Here is my ingredients for you to try yourself. Read More

We all know what is good for you and what should you be eating but sometimes, when the temptations are on every corner, (yes you,  delicious Italian gelato vendors, I refer to you) we forget about and just gave in to our cravings. As I am not in position to gave in to any temptations ( getting married and still under super-strict eating regimen) than I am here to share you some good tips for a healthy and balanced diet that might help you when you are doing your grocery shopping for the week.

Here are some tips approved by Women’s Health Nutritionist Eve Kalinik and me backing up the theory what should you eat for a healthy diet and weight loss.

Portugal is famous for her sea dishes, especially for sardines, and what could be a better lunch option than having a fresh fish dish at the seaside right after an crazy morning between plane catching, check-in struggles and car renting misunderstandings? For us finding this small , local all-you-can-eat restaurant with fixed sardine menu was the highlight of the day and actually – of all trip as the best local food experience.

Our lunch stop was at – Mar a Vista. This place I came across as best local place recommendations in Trip Advisor. Which actually provided pretty accurate visitor description of the place and the order of the day: ” They bring you grilled sardines, potatoes and salad, then they bring you more sardines, some more potatoes and salad, and than some more sardines and some more sardines, and when you feel like you cannot eat anymore they bring you more sardines…till you stay stop!” ( From our experience – stop was not enough! we had to say “Stop” for 3 times together with “basta,basta!”  and some hand gestures to stop bringing as we had already plenty. But boy, I tell you – those were one delicious sardines!  Read More

Sometimes we just cannot take it anymore the regular diet with it’s chicken/turkey,  salads and veggies and we need to freshen-up our everyday dish. My way to make the boring turkey/chicken to taste different is to make a meatballs. Which is fast, easy and delicious. as every time I am experimenting with different proportions and extras than I do not really follow a certain recipe, so just mixing up ingredients and go by intuition. 

So here come my yesterday’s meatball recipe. Remember this is a fit blog and a fit version of a meatballs so no frying required, just oven -to keep it light.

Who doesn’t know Milan? Capital of Fashion, Design and Inspiration of many artists as well as models, starlets and celebs. A wonderful place to soak-in culture, get creative and be inspired. However last years been noticing that Milan is improving more also on healthy food trends and following the global trend for urban cities offering bigger and wider healthy lunch selection. What makes foodies, vegans and healthy eaters happier and life easier ( talking of leaving that pre-packed salad at home and going out with friends for lunch).

This time wanted to share with you one of my favorite, healthy hot-spots of Milan – That’s Vapore. This place is truly green (in thinking and interior) offering a nice concept lunches served in baskets that are freshly prepared every day. Milan there are just 2 places but they are expanding and opened their first place also in London (Baker Street) as well.  Read More

Last Friday was all about cravings and desire to cook and create something different and delicious using particular ingredients, like black rice and pumpkin and so on. (The original post you can see here).  The best part of the last weekend was the one that followed – I actually did create and played around with 2 new fit recipes. The first one was with black rice and salmon.

So fast, easy and perfect for a fit weekend lunch that can be made by anyone and will take not more than 30 minutes to prepare everything. No real cooking skills required as well, so no excuses not trying yourself at home.

See recipe below. Read More
