Thanks to Rebecca Lewis, registered dietitian at HelloFresh, we found out about this amazing food recipe: cloud eggs. The origin of this Instagram trend is actually an old French recipe from 1691 ‘eggs in snow.’ Essentially an egg has the white and yolk separated, the white is whipped until fluffy peaks are formed and then the yolk is nestled inside the foamy whites and baked at 450 degrees.
“Call it what you want, it’s still an egg, just using a few extra cooking steps to make it super fluffy. Eggs are a high-quality protein powerhouse; 1 egg = 6g of protein, is a rich source of choline and vitamin D, and is only 70 calories!” Thank you Rebecca, we’re on Cloud 9
Smoothie bowls are über popular right now and we know why! ‘Not only are smoothie bowl beautiful to look at they are jam packed with nutrients. They are the perfect vehicle for delivering a very high quantity of vitamins and minerals. Most people have trouble visually when they look at whole fruit and veggies and thinking “I have to chew through all of that” but when they blend it all together in an easier to digest and easier to consume form, it suddenly becomes more manageable.’ Says Alison Roessler from Truvefit.com. ‘When we chew we are breaking up the individual cells so our bodies can absorb the nutrients. By blending everything together, our bodies don’t have to work as hard and we are able to absorb a larger quantity of those essential vitamins and minerals.’

However, someone consuming charcoal on a regular basis to “detox” is wasting their money as our digestive system, liver, and kidneys do that every day for us.
A classic one that’s been trending for quite a while now: avocado toast. The idea of putting avocado on toast can be traced back to 1962 to a New York Times article where they spoke about avocado toast and even in 1937 the New Yorker discussed avocados themselves in the article ‘Avocado, or the Future of Eating.’

Our favorite summer fruit! Dr. Fenster promotes the unconventional uses of watermelon. Besides using this fruit in your salad or yoghurt, throw it in your soup or make sandwiches of it! Use it instead of bread and add cheese for a sweet but salty summer sandwich. It might seem like an odd combination but many Mediterranean countries are known to eat watermelon with feta or mozzarella cheese.
Dr Fenster says that:
Watermelon is about 92% water. Adding more watermelon to your diet will help keep you hydrated during those hot summer months. Similar to tomatoes, watermelon also contains lycopene and can help protect against sunburn. There are also some studies that show that eating foods high in water can actually leave us feeling more satisfied on fewer calories. In that case, watermelon is a triple threat.
Bring on the triple threat!
