I must comment about mushrooms and raw food eaters...I have just read a scientific article that claims that raw mushrooms might not be so good for you but contain toxines that when cooked are broken down.
So make sure you cook them before eating, this does not mean that if you have a very small amount of chopped raw mushrooms in your salad it will be harmfull but nevertheless any preventive measures are good to take.

Eating rice is a good way to get your fibers but make sure it´s brown rice...the grain has to be complete as it is in the outer layer where you will find the fiber that you need for a good intestinal "workout"...fiber does not get digested but it pushes all the wasted material out of the body, preventing from it to stay there and rot...therefor it is a great nutrient for keeping your intestines clean and prevent colon cancer among other diseases.


This is a typical spanish cold soup very much consumed in summer time...fresh..packed of veggies and of highly nutritional content!!!!
-Ripe red tomatoes (use as much as you like!!)
-One cucumber
-One small green pepper (you can add more althoug it has quite a strong taste and it tends to ruin the soup adding too much of it)
-One garlic clove (Again..this is up to you how much garlic you like..;-))
-One onion
- Extra virgin Olive oil

The original recipe also adds old bread but since I am doing the healthy version I add none what so ever, it still tastes lovely..believe me!!!
Mix it all together and there you go...for serving just cut a few cucumbers, tomato and pepper pieces and put on top for a nicer can add some drops of that good Olive oil on top aswell to make it even more classy !;-)
Bon apetit!!!!


For those chocolate lovers..just like me and at the same time willing to go healthy, here I give you a recipe I found in my vegetarian book looking for a solution to the "normal" and unhealthy chocolate mousse...
This is a vegetarian dairy products...just veggie!!
-2 ripe avocados
-Cocoa powder ( not sweet but the REAL cocao from  the bio shop!
-Honey or agave syrup to sweeten the mousse
-To add creaminess you can put some almond milk in it or any other nut milk.
-Avocados can taste quite strong so you can add some vanilla zest to hide the "veggie taste"
And voilá...serve with bread or crakers or rise/spelt tartlet like I used....

This recipe is not only delicious but it also has nutritional value as avocados have the good fats (unsaturated) in them and have vitamins like vit.A, C, K and of the group B, folates, it is also a good source of vegetable proteins and carbohidrates. Avocados also provide minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Zinc, Iron, Copper..etc
Cocoa powder is low in fats and although has low amount in vitamins it has some minerals that are necessary for us like Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Calcium, Phosphorus and Copper.
