Healthy Chilled Recipes To Get On Track | Get Healthy With Valentina

Cold weather doesn't have to get you down! I recently came back from Mexico to a cold Germany. Despite the cold, I wanted to eat chilled or really exotic food things make me feel a little more like I was at home. Of course, I changed some ingredients to make the dishes healthier because I wasn't exactly the healthiest person on earth when I was in Mexico.   Eating well is all about balance.

This recipe is very simple and quick to make, and it can accommodate almost any diet. The key is to use melted coconut oil and maple syrup to bind and sweeten the mixture.

Tthese vegan brownies are the perfect way to satisfy your cravings. Why?

  1. They're healthier for your body. This vegan brownie recipe is full of healthy fats from avocado and dark chocolate
  2. They're healthy for your mind. Rather than resisting your cravings and bingeing later on, it's better to indulge on healthier substitutions. Plus, chocolate makes us plain happy (they stimulate the release of endorphins)!

If you're cringing because you heard the word avocado and chocolate together in the same sentence, don't be scared. Try these vegan brownies - I promise you'll love them. I used to be the biggest skeptic whenever I saw avocado on the ingredient list for dessert recipes - they aren't so bad!

4 Healthy Christmas Desserts That You Can Make ASAP - Get Healthy With Valentina

Apart from the pressures of choosing the right presents or catching up with friends and family, the holidays can also be a time of disappointment, financial strain, feuds, travel problems and being alone or far away from loved ones.

This Healthy Candy Cane Will Blow Your Mind

This Healthy Candy Cane Will Blow Your Mind

You'll only need two ingredients for this healthy candy cane: bananas and strawberries. Slice them up into coins and arrange them carefully into a cane-like shape. Make sure that the slices are roughly the same width so that everything is proportionate. When you're arranging the curve of the healthy candy cane, it's best to leave one full strawberry intact. Just slice off the stem and angle the strawberry between two banana slices. This is all you need to make one of the simplest and cutest desserts on the planet. Although bananas and strawberries work best for the classic candy cane colour combination, feel free to experiment with other fruits and berries. This healthy candy cane is refined sugar-free and bursting with fibre, potassium, and antioxidants.

You just need to eat healthier.
