Salad à la Piña Colada with salmon, pineapple and coconut

Perfect meal for dinner or lunch to work. Very light with fish, fruits and nuts, which is good for lowering blood pressure, lowering LDL cholesterol and increase HDL cholesterol.

Wholegrain tortilla

Whole wheat tortilla can be a good addition to many dishes. We can serve it with Mexican dishes such as stew or corn soup. We can do tortilla wraps filled with our favorite ingredients. I recently really like tortilla stuffed with feta cheese, olives, tomato and lettuce. This is in my opinion quite original and certainly something different than a simple sandwich.

  • half a cup of boiling water
  • tablespoon oil
  • salt


In a large bowl mix the flour and oil, salt and boiling water. Knead the dough and then divide it into 6 pieces. Fry on a dry frying pan on each side. Try not hold tortilla too long in the pan because it may burn very easily. After frying, place them on a plate and wrap with cling film and set aside at least one hour. After that tortillas become soft.


Celeriac coleslaw salad, good for lowering blood pressure

One of the indicators to determine the health of the heart is blood pressure. Keeping it at the proper level reduces the risk of heart attacks, strokes or other. It is known that the blood pressure can be controlled with drugs but also via the diet. Foods that can reduce blood pressure, are: celeriac, garlic, fish, olive oil or flaxseed. Celeriac, however, is the one for whom I would like to receive more attention. Research carried out by Dr. William J. Elliott of the Pritzker Medical Faculty at the Chicago University prove that celery root effectively lowers blood pressure. The study was conducted in rats by administering the active ingredient 3-n-bulyl-phthalide extracted from celeriac. Blood pressure lowering of 14%. Dr. Elliot believed that this compound reduces stress hormones that can cause stress-induced hypertension.

Therefore, I recommend with all my heart celeriac salad, which is ideal for dishes with chicken. In addition, a touch of honey and lemon will give it a fresh and original taste.


  • half a large celeriac (300g)
  • teaspoon of honey
  • half a lemon
  • 200ml Greek yoghurt


Grate the celeriac. Mix with honey and squeezed the juice of half a lemon. Allow to stand for 10 minutes. Drain off water, if necessary. Mix with yogurt.

Besides, coriander contains many nutritional properties, rich in antioxidants, minerals and vitamins (C, B1, B2, PP) so we can improve the condition of our skin. In addition to herbal medicine it is known as a diuretic (helps reduce swelling) and above all helps to reduce LDL cholesterol in our body so we reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

Ingredients (15 small meatballs)

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • a handful of coriander
  • 1 bread roll

Cut the bread roll into smaller pieces and soak in milk. Let stand for about 10 minutes. Chicken breasts cut into small cubes and then blend it. Stir in the soaked bread roll and blend it again. At the end stir in the chopped coriander and season with salt and pepper.
Boil water in a pot for steaming. Meat may seem a little fluid but leave it that way - that is why meatballs are very delicate. Put the meatballs to the steaming pot  by dipping hands in water and then forming small balls. Cook for about 15-20 minutes.
