Avocado and Cherry Tomatoes Salad

Ingredients for Avocado and Cherry Tomatoes Salad

If you’re looking for an easy, healthy and vegetarian salad, this one meets all three criteria. If you’re lucky, you can get the avocado for 50 – 90 cents at Superstore, making it for a very cheap salad too! The secret is the vinaigrette: always get a good quality balsamic vinegar (I recommend the ones from Lina’s Market). And always mix the vinaigrette in advance, letting it rest for at least 5 – 10 minutes before using it.

Almond chocolate raw cupcakes

My friend inspired me to try this recipe. It will take you around 20 minutes or less to produce a batch of the most delicious cupcakes you’ve ever tasted. 100% chocolate, no cooking, no eggs or flour, minimum mess. If you are not into raw/ vegan food, then you’ll need to get some relatively expensive items from the health food stores/ sections: cocoa powder (and it is crucial that you get a really good one, not the no-name stuff from your regular food store), coconut butter and almond butter (budget around $10-14 for each of these items, but you’ll use them for other desserts too).

Ingredients: 4 Tbsp cocoa powder, 3 Tbsp coconut butter (leave it out for a couple of hours before using it; you want it to be in a liquid form), 2 Tbsp honey, 2 Tbsp almond butter, a pinch of salt. Optional: a bit of rum, any type of nuts, raisins or dried fruits.

Instructions:

  1. In a big bowl, mix cocoa powder with coconut butter and a pinch of salt. Add the honey and the almond butter. If using any of the optional ingredients, add them now too.
  2. Line a muffin pan with muffin paper cups.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cups and gently press the contents to homogenize.
  4. Put in the fridge for 20-30 minutes (keep refrigerated when not eating them!).
