a handful of sunflower and pumpkin seeds
grated skin and juice from half a lemon

At the same time, roast peppers in the oven – at high temperature, about 220 degrees, with the grilling option, from each side until the skin turns dark, then put them into a plastic bag and after about 10 minutes remove the skin, cut into strips. Peel the tomatoes, remove the stones and cut into cubes, cut the cucumber into half-slices. Chop the herbs. Mix all ingredients, season with salt and saffron.

Smoothie is one of the best ideas for a nutritious breakfast when we have little time. Just add your favorite fruits to the blender, add milk or juice, mix and finish the meal. If we want the cocktail to be more filling, we usually enrich it with bran, chia seeds or linseed. Few people know that quinoa is also great for this too. Quinoa contains a lot of protein, making the inconspicuous smoothie turn into a wholesome meal. For cocktails we use cooked Quinoa in the proportion of 0.5 glasses of quinoa per 1 glass of smoothie.
