Coming back: new things, new recipe, blogiversary. Reintoarcere: lucruri noi, reteta noua, aniversare

Hello there. It's been awhile since I last wrote a post. During this break I did a lot of things... Maybe some of you know or heard about FOOD MATTERS. Well, they changed my life. Thanks to them now I am a nutritionist and dietitian. And one of the things I did lately, was to write for them. It was really a big accomplishment for me.  

It made me wonder... Contemplate... Gaze... It made me even more contented for life. Cause sometimes life really surprises you, by giving you more than you can expect or even imagine. I never thought when I first saw Food matters documentary that someday I will write for them. So I took this fact as a special "thank you".

Here you can find the article >> Food does matter my happy motivational story

Moving on :) The next thing I did and I am so happy about it, was to re-design my blog; new face, new logo (an origami dove). Hopefully you enjoyed the change. And last but not least, I focused on Rawsome sweets. Designing the catalog, recently the website. I actually love web design: create logos, web pages and stuff like that.

Below I posted the catalog pictures and right side, on my home page, you can find a button with Rawsome's logo that sends you to the website. Oh, I forgot to mention that this sweets are made by my friend and I :)

Today is a special day. That's why precisely in this day I chose to write the return-post. Today Wellness by sam celebrates three years. And the best way to celebrate is by making a raw cake, as usual: healthy and nourishing - no baking, no sugar, no flour.

Before I show you the recipe, let me express gratitude to the followers; to those who are still here despite the passage of time. THANK YOU!

Buna. A trecut ceva timp de cand am scris un articol. In timpul acestei pauze am facut multe lucruri... Poate unii dintre voi stiu sau au auzit de FOOD MATTERS. Ei bine, ei mi-au schimbat viata. Datorita lor acum sunt nutritionist-dietetician. Si unul din lucrurile pe care le-am facut in ultima vreme a fost sa scriu pentru ei. A fost o mare realizare pentru mine.

M-a facut sa simt admiratie... Sa contemplu... M-a facut mai multumita de viata. Caci, uneori chiar te poate surprinde, oferindu-ti mai mult decat te-ai putea astepta sau ti-ai putea imagina. Nu am crezut niciodata atunci cand am vizualizat documentarul Food matters ca intr-o zi voi scrie pentru ei. Asa ca am luat acest fapt ca un special "multumesc".

Mergand mai departe, urmatorul lucru pe care l-am facut si sunt tare incantata, a fost sa reinnoiesc design-ul blog-ului meu: o noua fata, un nou logo (porumbelul de origami). Sper ca v-a placut schimbarea. 
Si nu in ultimul rand, m-am concentrat pe Rawsome sweets. Pe proiectarea catalogului si recent a site-ului sau. Imi place web design-ul: crearea de logo-uri, de pagini web si lucruri din acestea.

Anterior am postat pozele catalogului si in partea dreapta a paginii de home a blog-ului meu ve-ti gasi un buton cu logo-ul Rawsome care va trimite catre site. Ah, am uitat sa mentionez ca aceste deserturi sunt realizate de catre mine si prietena mea :)

Astazi este o zi speciala. De aceea am ales ca in aceasta zi sa redactez articolul de intoarcere. Astazi Wellness by sam implineste trei ani. Si cea mai buna modalitate de celebrare e prin realizarea unui tort; ca de obicei: sanatos si nutritiv - fara zahar sau faina.

Inainte de a publica reteta permite-ti-mi sa exprim recunostinta fata de voi, fata de cititori; in mod special acelora care sunt inca aici in ciuda trecerii timpului. MULTUMESC!

Chocolate hazelnut nanaicecream: healthy, nourishing & vegan

Here we go again #Nanaicecream on the way. I couldn't finish July without sharing another great recipe of ice cream. That healthy, nourishing, delicious and vegan ice cream.


2 frozen bananas cut in chunks
1 TBSP cacao
1 tsp carob
1 handful raw hazelnuts
1 quarter cup vegetal milk


Blend all together until it's smooth.
Pour in a bowl and garnish on your taste.

Superfood pump icecream. Inghetata proteica din superalimente

We are in July and here we go with another #Nanaicecream recipe. So you know, we'll keep this way all summer :) Is too good, healthy and so versatile to not to. I mean, you can have every single day a different, unique taste: fresh and nourishing. The base is simple; I think you already know it - frozen bananaaaa is the answer.
And because the content is high in protein we can call it "pump icecream" :) with superfoods ingredients. 


2 frozen bananas cut in chunks
1 scoop protein (I used soy protein)
1 tsp spirulina powder
1 quarter cup rice milk
Cacao nibs for garnish


Blend all together until it's smooth.
Pour in a bowl and garnish on your taste.


Suntem in luna Iulie si continuam cu reteta de inghetata #Nanaicecream. Ca sa stiti, vom merge astfel toata vara :) E prea buna, sanatoasa si versatila ca sa nu o facem. Adica puteti avea in fiecare zi un gust diferit, unic: proaspat si nutritiv. Baza e simpla; cred ca o stiti deja - bananaaa congelata e raspunsul.
Si deoarece continutul sau este bogat in proteina, putem denumi aceasta inghetata "pump icecream". In limba noastra suna mai putin placut, asa ca prefer denumirea in engleza :)


2 banane congelate taiate bucati
1 masura proteina (Eu am folosit proteina din soia)
1 lingurita pudra spirulina
Un sfert de cana lapte de orez
Boabe de cacao faramitate pentru ornat


Mixati totul in robotul de bucatarie pana e cremos si neted.
Turnati in bol si ornati dupa gust.

Superstar Nanaicecream. Inghetata Superstar

I fell in love deeply with #nanaicecream. She's natural taste, she's creaminess, she's freshness... It's the best icecream. No sugar, no dairy, no flavour added. And so easy to make, piece of cake. Give it a try, you will not regret it.


- 3 frozen bananas cut in chunks
- 1 TBSP alkaline cacao
- a quarter cup rice milk

For garnish: cranberries and dried aronia


Add all the ingredients in your food processor and mix until it's creamy smooth.
Pour in a bowl and garnish on your taste.

* The Aronia Berry  is an Antioxidant Superstar; extremely high in antioxidants, full of fiber, proven Anti-Cancer Properties, anti-viral properties and high vitamin C.


M-am indragostit profund de #nanaicecream (supranumele inghetatei de banane). Gustul sau natural, cremozitatea sa, prospetimea sa... E cea mai buna inghetata. Fara zahar, produse lactate sau arome adaugate. Si e atat de usor de facut, floare la ureche. Incearca, nu vei regreta.


- 3 banane congelate taiate bucati
- 1 lingura cacao alcalina
- un sfert de cana lapte de orez 

Pentru ornat: afine de cultura si aronia deshidratata


Adauga toate ingredientele in robotul de bucatarie/blender si mixeaza pana devine o pasta cremoasa.
Toarna intr-un bol si orneaza dupa preferinte.

* Fructele Aronia sunt un antioxidant Superstar; extrem de bogate in antioxidanti, pline de fibre, proprietati anti-cancer dovedite, proprietati anti-virale si multa vitamina C.
