1. Ramblings

Recently I have started to do some changes in my eating habits, I eat mostly raw fruits and veggies during the day and have a low fat meal for dinner.

This has some advantages:

- I don't have to cook during day or prepare any food the day before - I feel a lot better. The usual after-lunch-tiredness is gone.

A good idea is to pack a lunch box with cut up (or whole) veggies and another one with fruits. This will help you to get through the day without ever feeling hungry and makes you look forward to (the hopefully healthy and low fat) dinner.

Try it and let me know!

By the way, this works best on warm or hot days, when it's really cold I definitely need a hot meal.

But one thing I cannot give up is my coffee addictions, it's just too delicious. Therefore I was excited to find the below article with 3 tricks to make your coffee super-healthy.


2. Low Fat Fruit Pie

Ok, that's not raw fruits, but it's a treat for coffee or tea time :-)

You can use any fruit of the season like berries, cherries, apples, pears, peaches, oranges, apricots, etc.

Try it and you will be delighted.

Ingredients Pie

  • 6 cups fresh mixed fruit
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar (or replace with 1-2 teaspoons splenda)
  • 1/3 tablespoons lemon rind
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon mace
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C) degrees.

In a mixing bowl, put the fruit, sugar and lemon rind. Slowly add the flour until all the fruit juice has been soaked up and you have a batter-like mixture.

(If you use primarily "dry" fruit like apples, use less than 1/2 cup of flour, with very juicy oranges it could be more.)

Stir to mix well.

Pour into a 9-inches baking dish and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine ingredients for the topping and mix thoroughly until you have an even mass.

Sprinkle evenly all-over the fruit batter.

Bake 45 minutes or until golden.

Coffee... almost everybody drinks it... some people have 3-4 cups per day or more.
