Saladpride drinks: strawberries, lemon and water

I've never been a massive fan of fruit and veggie juices. I find them too rich, too intense and a bit overwhelming. Especially to drink with something to eat I prefer something lighter.  I'm starting here a new series: infused water "salad". Ahahaha! Just kidding, just infused water. I want something to drink with my salad and my breakfast everyday. I want something refreshing, something simple, something light and healthy. It's nothing new, nothing crazy, just the right thing for me to drink along my meal and during the day, in this hot summer. 


Strawberries, lemon, water.

broad beans, broccoli, carrot and persian cress

I've always been a fan of Steve's leaves, I've been extensively using his baby watercress, pea shoots and wild red rocket. I respect also his attention to natural farming ( more than organic). I luckily had the opportunity to try in advance the lovely new range of Steve's salad: the Persian cress. Yummy!! It's a nicely peppery and light mix, very well crafted as usual. I've tried it with steamed broad beans and stem broccoli, shaved carrot, spring onion and a English mustard, salt, cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and agave syrup. Broad beans week, vegan salad.

Sprouts week



After 2 weeks of tests on sprouts I can say that I don't really like raw sprouts. Their bitter taste doesn't work with my palate. I can get away with alfalfa but sprouted legumes are a bit too much.
What I liked I'd been boiling or stir frying them for few minutes in order to make them safer (killing bacteria) and removing that incredibly bitter taste. What's your take on sprouts?

No more boring foods!!!! and no more refined sugar...

that's why i'm trying to cut my refined sugars....
and that's why i'm always trying to eat different things...
dopamine up, but with no "drugs'!
No more boring foods!!!!


How sugar affects the brain - Nicole Avena

"When you eat something loaded with sugar, your taste buds, your gut and your brain all take notice. This activation of your reward system is not unlike how bodies process addictive substances such as alcohol or nicotine -- an overload of sugar spikes dopamine levels and leaves you craving more. Nicole Avena explains why sweets and treats should be enjoyed in moderation."



Sugar: Hiding in plain sight - Robert Lustig


"While sugar is easy to spot in candy, soft drinks and ice cream, it also hides out in foods you might not expect -- including peanut butter, pasta sauce and even bologna! Robert Lustig decodes confusing labels and sugar's many aliases to help determine just how much of that sweet carbohydrate makes its way into our diets.


Lesson by Robert Lustig, animation by The Tremendousness Collective."
