Health Benefits of … Fruits and Veggies

Do you love fruits? Do you love veggies? Do you love fruits and veggies? Do you get even more excited when you find out the fruits and veggies you love are loaded with health benefits too? Like you really didn't need to be persuaded to eat them. But now you have a justification for enjoying them! YAY!!  It takes so little to make me happy.  :)


Joined the BlogBourne blogging community at the request of a friend and stumbled across a gold mine! One of the bloggers at this site supplies detailed dietary and nutritional information about several fruits and vegetables. Below is a sample listing.  There are more.

Custom Cakes by Rainbow Nourishments (Raw Vegan Cake Maker)

Was watching a health infomercial and the gentleman was supplying a recipe for a cake.  He showed the cake and then said we wouldn't believe what the ingredients were.  Have to admit when I saw the recipe I thought that cake was the best disguise I've ever seen.  Indeed, until I had to change my eating habits, it never occurred to me that so many foods that I loved to eaten could be prepared a completely different way and still be enjoyed.  Who knew?  

Evidently the vegans knew and are way ahead with this knowledge.  In one of my previous posts I shared my love of cake ("Which Cultures Make the Best Cakes?").  Today while surfing the Internet, stumbled across these wonderful creations by a food blogger named Anthea, who published a blog is RainbowNourishments.com.  She makes customs cakes.  Sure!  There are a lot of custom cakes makers out there.  But this lady specializes in raw vegan cakes that are indescribable!

This recipe captures pretty much everything that I love about cakes. I love taking a bite of a sponge cake and squashing the air out of it in my mouth (ok, that sounds weird and confronting, but it's the truth so I'll stick with it). I love the simplicity and smoothness of raw cakes.

Acai Bowl Cheesecakes

Smoothie bowls are a staple in my diet as they are quick to make, delicious and can be made out of pantry/freezer ingredients. Smoothie bowls are normally thick smoothies poured into bowls, made with some sort of frozen fruit, and topped with things like granola, fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, coconut...

Rainbow nicecream cake

Whoever invented nicecream (aka icecr eam made of blended bananas) is a genius.I thought: what if I could combine my current favourite food (nicecream) with my favourite concept (rainbows) into something that could enjoy at ANY time of the day. This marbled nicecream cake reminds me that adults CAN have fun with their food.

Not only is the dish delicious and easy to make but did you know that for the Chinese people, noodles are a “symbol of longevity”.  For those who celebrate, Chinese New Year, for 2017 it occurs on January 28th.  Candy also has a recipe for Chinese New Year Balls, which I'm sharing as well.

Wishing you peace, prosperity, good health and a long and wonderful life!

Honey Chai Cake Recipe | Arabic Food (Reblog)

Are you curious about global flavors?  You have wanderlust but can't wander too far because your travel budget is extremely limited?  Describing myself, of course.  My travel adventures are accomplished mainly through the Internet and television.  Was watching a TV cooking show and the host asked one of his guests who was a world traveler, which part of the world had the "best food" (in his opinion).  He said he enjoyed food prepared in the Middle East.

Arabic Food I

Connecting the dots.  

Several months back, began using the Google+ collections feature to maintain a collection of posts and links related to World Cuisine.  In the process, stumbled across the Arabic Food Recipes blog.  My husband and kids are turned on to chai tea. Even though I am a coffee fiend, having been encouraged by them to try a cup, it's very easy to understand why they are chai tea lovers.  At the aforementioned food blog found a cake recipe and thought to myself:

  • 'Chai tea is delicious. Why not chai cake?'  
(See link shared below.)

Here is another thing to note about this blog.  When many of us are enjoying the holiday season, we say "Happy Holidays" to others.  Why?  It's not to be anti-Christmas.  America is a diverse nation.  Some folks do not celebrate Christmas.  But they do celebrate a holiday!  This blog has holiday recipes for Christmas, EID, and Ramadan.  Cool huh?

Food Bloggers Keep on Blogging!

2016 is winding down.  Food Ways was started in November.  Taking the opportunity to spotlight food bloggers who have been actively publishing throughout the year and even in previous years.  Their persistence motivates me.  Sharing a link to their blogs below.  It's my way of wishing them a joyful, healthy and safe holiday season, and continued success and prosperity in the upcoming new year.  

Some shares may not be "typical" of the traditional western Christmas celebration, but I also have an interest in world cuisines and global flavors.  There's no rule that says a traditional menu can't be modified with the addition of new, different and tasty recipes.  After all, when it comes to food and family, we make our own rules and traditions!  Don't we?  Enjoy!

Happy Blogging Food Bloggers!

Sour Cream Pound Cake Poinsettia Cookies

Sour Cream Pound Cake Poinsettia Cookies

There comes a point every holiday season where you realize you cannot do it all. You cannot make homemade lip balm and vanilla extract for everyone on your list, you cannot stand in a 3-hour line at the post office for Christmas stamps, you cannot be 17 different places on Christmas Eve, you cannot scrub the baseboards before company arrives, and you cannot make homemade cookies and icing when your child tells you he needs cookies the next morning.

  

Sprite and The Refreshing Truth About Korean Food


Sprite and The Refreshing Truth About Korean Food

Traditional Korean cuisine uses fresh ginger, garlic, green onions, sesame oil, chili flakes, soy sauce and fermented chili paste to create bold and distinctive flavors we can't help but crave. Salty, spicy and tangy flavors are often tempered and balanced with sweeter notes.

Cassoulet - The World's Most Complex Simple Recipe

There are so many reasons not to make cassoulet. You need lots of ingredients, some of which take effort to find. There are many steps, and even some of the steps have steps. It will also seem like you used every pot and pan in the kitchen, which will be trashed by the time you're done.
