Veggies are the star ingredients of a diet, and this since the dawn of time. But vegetables are not here only for diets; they are also here to make our lives healthier, to give us strength, to make our skin and our heart better; but also to surprise us with the variety of their recipes and their light character especially when they are cooked without a lot of fat and when they are eaten in reasonable quantities because as my ex-coach Weight-Watchers used to say: “an elephant eats only salads and weighs 5 tons” :-)
A spinach pie with leeks and feta cheese and there you have a Greek spanakopita in mini version and like no other ;-) It’s light on fat and so good ;-) Try it, it’s quite easy to make when you just buy the phyllo leaves on the store!
A beautiful salad with green lentils and veggies sliced in small cubes for more savor and with a vinaigrette with lemon and mustard for even more taste :-) If you are vegetarian and not vegan, you can eat them with a poched egg! It’s really delicious with or without the egg! It’s your choice :-)
A wonderful salad with baby spinach, strawberries, pecans and feta cheese! It’s a delicious mix that becomes even better thanks to the sauce made with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, honey and rosemary!
