Having a healthy breakfast!

my recipes

This morning I wanted to have a healthy breakfast. I love having toasts, avocado, eggs, cold cuts and all the things a should not eat every morning. Long time the chia pudding became popular. I saw pictures and recipes in Pinterest but never wanted to try it because my little sis tried it and said is no good. But I prefer to try it. This morning I had my pineapple and coconut chia pudding. A wanna be tropical chia pudding for these sunny days in Santiago, Chile. Is so easy to prepare 馃槈

“Pineapple and coconut chia pudding”

Ingredientes:

40gr chia

70gr milk

140gr pineapple juice

20gr shredded coconut

fruits

Preparation:

  1. In a glass put the chia, milk, pineapple juice. Stir and let the chia absorb all the liquid. I prepared mine one night before. But one hour will be in off to make sure the chia absorbs all.
  2. After the “pudding” is ready, place the coconut and the fruits you want. I put kiwi and banana to mine! 馃榾
  3. Enjoy and start your healthy morning!!!

what is that???

food

IMG_2260The first time I saw it I asked: what is that? and the answer was: a sweet from Middle East made from sesame paste and sugar. Basically that麓s all and can found other varieties with nut fruits or fruits. The texture is oily and crumbly. Is a sweet very sweet…聽a sweet very sweet…聽so I recommend take it with tea or coffee. I prefer tea.

In the picture she is cutting my piece jijijijiji…. halva with pistachios 馃檪

If you like sugar I really recommend it, if you don麓t at least try halva. It worths, I swear!

This halva is from Whole Foods, New York.

In La Vega, no Las Vegas

lifestyle

La Vega is located at Recoleta commune and is a famous market in Santiago. Fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, meat, flour, sugar are sold there. Thanks to the peruvian inmigration you can also find peruvian products that before used to be very hard to get.

This market is open 4:00 to 19:30. At the opening hours you麓ll find chefs and cooks trying to get the best products for their restaurants. At mondays supposed not to be open, but many stores open anyway. If you get hungry you can eat at chileans or peruvian聽cociner铆as聽there.

 

Matcha jiggly cheesecake

my recipes

I麓ve been a bit obsessed with this recipe because the texture is light, rich and I love matcha!

Matcha is a kind of green tea powder, but the leaves are treated very carefully. They cover green tea fields so they grow in shadow and let the plant boost all the benefits that regular leaves used to have. Matcha combats aging, enhances memoranda concentration, 聽build immunity and more. 1 cup of matcha = 10 cup of regular green tea.

Today I bought shredded coconut so I can mix it with matcha recipes! Hope you enjoy the 聽jiggly cheesecake like I do. XOXO!

This recipe is for a 21cm of diameter mold.

Ingredients

  1. 100 ml whole milk
  2. 60 gr unsalted butter
  3. 200 gr cream cheese

Comida en los vuelos

espa帽ol, food

Una de las cosas que me gusta de volar son las sorpresas de la comida que dan a bordo. A veces buenas sorpresas a veces casi siempreno s茅 si re铆r o llorar. En internet dicen que el costo del alimento por servicio en clase econ贸mica es de un d贸lar o menos. S贸lo rumores, nada oficial.

En mi vuelo de Santiago con conecci贸n en Brasil tuve desayuno y almuerzo.

Me gust贸 m谩s el desayuno de Avianca Brasil y los sobrecargo de vuelos fueron m谩s simp谩ticos. El pan de Avianca estuvo fr铆o, pero qu茅 puedes esperar en econ贸mico (?). Pero me gust贸 m谩s que el primero porque me dieron frutas y elecci贸n entre un s谩ndwich de jam贸n y queso o fiambres con queso. Eleg铆 la segunda elecci贸n.

Me dieron almuerzo s贸lo en mi vuelo desde Madrid a Sao Paulo. La buena sorpresa fue que el pan estaba caliente y el sabor de la salsa estuvo bien. Tambi茅n ten铆an pasta pero nunca elijo pasta a bordo de vuelos. 驴Por qu茅? Siempre est谩n sobre cocidos. El postre fue una especie de crema de lim贸n (no mousse). S贸lo le di una probadita.
