Avocado Toast

avocado-toast

I have been shooting a lot of recipes lately and working with many talented food bloggers and wellness coaches. Inevitably (and happily) I’ve been picking up many healthy recipes along the way. So I decided to share some of these along with my photography.

The avocado toasts have become very popular recently. They are such a great & healthy way to eat a quick nutritious lunch without much effort. Avocado toasts could be very versatile, depending on the bread and toppings you use.

This simple one is made with rye bread, which is high in fiber and many other nutrients.

avocado-toastIngredients:

– 1 avocado

– 1 slice of rye bread (or any other bread you like)

– 1 radish (sliced thin)

– olive oil

– salt to taste

Instructions:

While your bread is toasting in the toaster, mash the avocado to spreadable consistency adding salt as you mash. Spread on the bread and top with radish. Add a few peas and sprinkle with olive oil.

Enjoy!

Easy & Healthy Pancake Recipe

Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day. And since it’s the most important one, I am always looking for healthier versions of my favorite dishes. Pancakes is one of them and I have never been a fan of precessed, prepackaged varieties.

This recipe calls for only a few fresh ingredients, is super easy to make and has been my family & friends’ favorite ever since I started making it.

How to prepare for a photoshoot

kalesmoothie

Many of my clients eat very little prior to their photoshoot because they don’t want to look and feel bloated. That means they run out of steam and get tired too quickly during the shoot! I often suggest drinking a smoothie while on the way to see me. It will give you more energy during the shoot and hydrate you, making your skin look fresh and ready for the camera. Here is a quick & delicious recipe:

-Kale, Banana, Strawberries, Frozen Organic Blueberries, Mango Kefir…blend and enjoy!
