Summer is coming and it means fresh berries, cool drinks and light desserts. I’ve had a trifle recipe on my mind for quite a while now. Just need the berry season to arrive. I also was looking for a basic vanilla cake recipe to use instead of traditional sponge cake. I spent many evenings in my bed thinking how to make it. And thought why not to take my protein chocolate cake and make it a vanilla one with some adjustments.

Healthy stir fry is a no brainer. Just combine some protein, vegetables and healthy noodles, and you are good to go. Soba noodles are quick to cook, usually made of a whole grain like buckwheat, which means they provide more fiber than wheat or rice noodles. Stir frying these noodles with a bunch of kale and other vegetables is a huge benefit. Also if you can find organic soba noodles like I did that would be great. I paid only $0.80 per package.
If you are a fan of pesto then you will like this recipe. I find pesto belongs to “love or hate it” foods. This pesto sauce is super healthy. Made with spinach, barely any oil and sunflower seeds instead of pine nuts. Sunflower seeds are lower in calories, fat and higher in protein than traditionally used pine nuts. That’s why I chose them.
