Let’s save our bees! Sa salvam albinele!

albinuta pe trandafir, RoI

I don’t know if you all know or if you care, but the European populations of bees are in danger for many years already.

The intensive agriculture, the use of pesticides, the legal or illegal cutting of trees or destroying of forests or fields, etc. have brought about the death of many generations of bees. these small amazing insects are doing many invisible tasks, without which our life on Earth would be much worse. They are in charge with all the ‘production’ of fruits and vegetables as they manage the pollen and thus, most of the flora species in Europe and the world. Not to say how useful and healthy are the results of their work – mainly honey, pollen, mother bee milk and the others also.

Acest articol doreste sa atraga atentia problemelor cu care se confrunta populatiile de albine din Europa, deja de cativa ani buni.

Agricultura intensiva, folosirea pesticidelor, taierea legala sau ilegala de arbori, distrugerea padurilor sau a campurilor fertile, etc. au creat probleme grave care au dus la decesul multor generatii de albine. Cred ca stim cu totii ca, fara albine, nu am mai avea fructe si legume, ele fiind responsabile cu polenizarea. De asemenea, nu trebuie sa uitam cat de utile sunt pentru un stil de viata sanatos dar chiar si pentru vindecarea unor boli grave precum cancer, produsele albinutelor precum miere, polen sau laptisor de matca.

World Food Day-16 October *** Ziua Mondiala a Alimentatiei -16 Octombrie


It started more or less with Jamie Oliver’s amazing energy and creativity to promote healthy food so later, I decided to celebrate this day every year. Besides our genetical heritage and other factors, food has an essential role in preserving our health, youth and active longevity. That’s why, I think that a good diet together with being active can be the basis for perfect health, which is worth all the richnesses in the world.  Besides this, the way we eat is also important, for us and this wonderful planet that supports all of us.

I have a healthy suggestion for the meatless Fridays, that is easy to prepare and very tasty, so everyone can prepare it in a samba rhythm anytime. It is an omelette combined with a simple guacamole.

You need 3 eggs, a softer avocado, some harder cheese, some garlic, a bit of lemon juice and some salt. For the omelette, you start with beating the eggs, then adding the salt and putting them in the pan; after some minutes, you can add the cheese (small cubes or sliced) and watch them cook, so that it doesn’t get burnt. With the avocado, collect the whole pulps, mix them well with a fork, add the lemon juice and garlic (which you’ve already cut) and mix well again. When the omelette is ready, put it on a nice plate with the guacamole and if you also eat bread, you can grill some slices of brown bread – my favourite. The result is tasty, very healthy and nicely coloured- if you also have kids!         Enjoy your meal!


Bineinteles ca am aflat de aceasta zi cu tema gastronomica de la simpaticul Jamie Oliver si apoi am decis sa o sarbatoresc an de an, pregatind ceva simplu sau special. In afara de gene si alti factori, hrana zilnica are un rol esential pentru pastrarea sanatatii, tineretii si pentru o longevitate activa. O dieta buna alaturi de un stil de viata activ sunt secretul unei vieti sanatoase, care valoreaza mai mult decat orice bogatii.

Sugestia mea pentru o zi de vineri fara carne este o combinatie sanatoasa si usor de preparat de oricine, in ritm de dans! Am ales o omleta cu branza combinata fericit un guacamole simplu, facut in casa.

Aveti nevoie de trei oua, un avocado copt, niste branza mai tare, usturoi, putin suc de lamaie si niste sare. Pentru omleta, bateti ouale bine si adaugati sarea, apoi puneti-le in tigaie; dupa cateva minute, adaugati branza (o puteti marunti cum doriti) si apoi continuati sa le gatiti cu atentie, ca sa nu se arda. In ce priveste avocado-ul, adunati toata pulpa, amestecati bine cu o furculita pana devine o pasta; apoi adaugati sucul de lamaie si usturoiul (taiat deja) si amestecati din nou foarte bine. Cand omleta e gata, puneti-o pe o farfurie draguta impreuna cu guacamole si, daca mancati paine in general, cu cateva felii de paine neagra – preferata mea. Rezultatul final este gustos, foarte sanatos si frumos colorat – daca aveti si copii.     Pofta buna!





Summer Smoothie Un smoothie de vara


As there are days which can be very hot and it’s a bit more difficult to eat classical meals, I would propose you the recipe of a smoothie.      I have put carrots, yellow melon, apples, kiwi, plums plus some honey, cinnamon and mineral water. Not only that it’s very tasty but it also protects your skin and eyes of the sun thanks to the vitamin A & vitamin C it contains.

Have a healthy and joyful summer!

Pentru ca stiu cum pot fi zilele de vara acasa, in Bucuresti, in Roma sau oriunde altundeva, va propun o reteta de smoothie pe care am incercat-o zilele acestea.

Am folosit morcovi, pepene galben, mere, kiwi, prune si ceva miere, putina scortisoara si apa minerala. Este foarte gustos si va protejeaza pielea si ochii datorita continutului de vitamina A si C.

Sa aveti o vara sanatoasa si vesela!

Tasty recipe for the Easter cake Pasca de Paste-reteta usoara!

I think many of you know this cake so will be short. The main ingredients are: 600g of cottage cheese(simple, no salt); 4 fresh eggs; 5 spoons of honey; 1 tea-sp. cinnamon; the dry peel of a lemon; the dry peel of an orange; a pinch of salt; 40g raisins that had been kept in some rum essence.

As for the dough, do like me: mix some butter with sugar, a bit of yeast, an egg and add as much flour as it needs. I made first the dough and fixed it in the cooking pot (a round glass pot special for oven) and then I mixed the cheese with the sugar(used brown) and then added the eggs, the dry peel, cinnamon and raisins. It was easy to make it homogeneous. I also added a bit of nutmeg. Then I dropped carefully this pasta on top of my dough. I fixed the oven at 180 degrees and in about 35 minutes it was done. My partner and friends ate it with high speed 🙂

Cred ca toti cunoasteti aceasta reteta; pe langa cozonac, imi place sa o am pe masa de fiecare Paste si sa o impart cu cei de langa mine. Aveti mai jos ingredientele:

600 grame brânză de vaci dulce si  4 ouă
– 5 linguri miere; – 1 linguriţă scorţişoară
– coaja rasă de la o lămâie; – coaja rasă de la o portocală
– 1 vârf de cuţit sare; – 40 g stafide înmuiate în prealabil în esenţă de rom

In ce priveste aluatul, am facut unul foarte simplu- am amestecat o bucata de unt moale cu zahar, cu putina drojdie (cub), cu un ou si am pus cata faina a fost nevoie. Aluatul a fost gata rapid si l-am fixat imediat in forma de prajitura.  Apoi, in ce priveste umplutura, am amestecat branza cu zaharul (eu am folosit brut), apoi am adaugat ouale batute, coaja de lamaie si portocala, scortisoara si stafidele. Amestecati bine pana devine omogen. Eu am adaugat si un praf de nucsoara. Apoi am asezat usor crema peste aluat, am mai aruncat cateva stafide peste si am pus-o la cuptor. Temperatura este de 180 de grade si o puteti lasa la copt in jur de 35 de minute. A iesit foarte buna, puteti vedea in poza 2; sunt si multe alte retete dar eu am preferat-o pe aceasta pentru ca este rapida si usoara si rezultatul este la fel de sanatos&delicios ca la orice alta reteta de pasca.

Pofta buna! 🙂
