Waldorf salad with grapes

Now an international favourite, the Waldorf salad has its roots in America: Oscar Tschirky, a waiter at the exclusive Waldorf Hotel in New York, created the original recipe in the late 19th century. Here we give this classic dish a modern twist and refine the Waldorf salad with crunchy walnuts and juicy grapes.

Avocado banana mousse

When it comes to avocados, guacamole is usually the first thing that comes to mind. But there’s a lot more to avocados! Prepared as a sweet mousse with bananas and cocoa powder, it is a real treat for the taste buds – beautifully creamy and chocolaty.

Core issues

As children, many of us grew up with the impression we should avoid eating seeds from fruit and vegetables (e.g., oranges, watermelon, papaya, bell peppers, etc.) on the vague assumption that they were inedible — possibly even toxic. As adults, we carry on this convention by tossing away apple cores or spitting out grape seeds. Well it turns out we’re operating on the adoption of another food myth: Far from being bad for you, fruit and veggie seeds are actually the most nutritious component of the entire plant!

Is snacking healthy?

It’s 10 o’clock in the morning and your stomach is rumbling again. Another three hours to lunchtime – you need a little something to tide you over. But is it healthy to eat between meals or is it better to avoid snacks? We investigate and reveal how snacking affects the body.

Could spices be good for you?

Today, we shed some light on spices that could be particularly good for your body.

Re-interpreted: Caesar Salad with cabbage

Caesar Salad is a well-known and well-loved classic. We like it best when it’s jazzed up with different members of the cabbage family. Cauliflower, broccoli and Brussels sprouts tickle the taste buds and give this classic a special kick.

Pineapple for your peepers

When it comes to eye health, vitamin A usually gets most of the credit—but don’t overlook the potential of vitamin C. This antioxidant nutrient can counteract free radicals that damage the eyes and cause cataracts (clouding) in the ocular lens. Pineapple is an excellent source of vitamin C—just one cup of pineapple packs 132% of your daily value of vitamin C, giving this tropical fruit eye-protection potential.
