How to Make 8 Organic Foods at Home (Infographic)

We all know it’s good to eat healthily. Common sense dictates you should choose plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins for a nutritious diet. But when wandering the aisles of your local supermarket, another question arises: should you also buy organic?

Organic food is known for being slightly more expensive than it’s non-organic counterparts. Many argue it’s more nutritious, safer to eat, healthier – and most important of all – tastes better. It all sounds ideal, but it’s not always feasible for everyone’s budget.

But enjoying organic food shouldn’t be confined to the foodie elite. You can easily make some of your favourite foods at home for a fraction of the cost.

One of our favourite recipes is for the delicious protein bar, made in four easy steps.

All you need is:

400g (14oz.) 100% natural protein powder200g (7oz.) organic rolled oats180ml fat-free milk100g (3oz.) natural peanut butter  100g (3oz.) organic honey30g (1oz.) cocoa powderOrganic ground flax (as required)

1. Put the powder, oats, peanut butter, honey and cocoa powder in a bowl and mash together with your hands.

2. Add half the milk. This should be enough to just create a wet dough. The consistency should be like liquid concrete.

3. Roll the dough into a rectangular shape. Dust over flax and slice into bars.

4. Store the bars in a covered container in the refrigerator overnight. Alternatively, place them in the freezer for long-term storage.

A gorgeous breakfast

Hello guys!

It’s breakfast time at Top Food Facts’ kitchen and we have prepared something amazing. Let me explain it to you in few words – we cooked poached free-range eggs and placed them on top of a granary toast with avocado, chilli flakes, sea salt, black pepper, parsley and manchego cheese. And just because this is not enough for us, we also cooked some amazing Lincolnshire sausages, accompanied by pan roasted cherry tomatoes. Wow! So many things in one plate, that create a beautiful story in your mouth. You just can’t have enough, because of this diversity. The flavours that you can mix and match are numerous.

Let me show you how it looks like.


And now let’s speak about how to choose your products.

Let’s start with the avocado toast. The best breads for this kind of toast are granary, rye and sourdough. They just match perfectly, try to buy them from a local deli. When you are choosing avocado, make sure that it’s soft, but not too soft. You should be able to spread it on the toast just with a fork. Get rid of any brown spots, if you encounter them. The seasonings for your avocados are a lot – we prefer to use chilli flakes, black pepper, sea salt, walnut oil, parsley and freshly squeezed lemon juice. We decided to add some cheese to our toast, just because we love the combination of it with avocado, and our favourite cheese is the Spanish Manchego.

Topping all this with poached eggs, transfers you to another level. In order to have the best poached eggs you have to always use the freshest eggs possible around you. Their egg white is very firm, and it wraps around the yolk completely. The taste of the yolk itself… this runny madness going down on your avocado toast gives you an unforgettable experience on the breakfast table. You really understand how good it really is. And make sure that when you poach the eggs, your water is just below the boiling point, otherwise you will break them or they will become extremely hard-boiled on the outside. The result you need is a completely cooked, soft and gentle egg white and a runny yolk.

In addition to all of that we decided to pan roast some sweet cherry tomatoes and two Lincolnshire pork sausages. An amazing result!

We are really looking forward to our next breakfast, because we really started loving it’s surprises!

Homemade chocolate truffles

Hello everyone! Today we prepared something very special for you. We are going to show you how easily you can make homemade chocolate truffles. These tiny beautiful, “melt in your mouth”, chocolate bonbons can be the star of all types of events you host!

And they are so easy to make. All you need to make 10 truffles is 100 gr of high quality dark chocolate, 100 ml of double cream, 50 gr of butter and some cocoa powder.

Poof!!!!!! Magic!

Chocolate truffles2They are extremely delicious and cute. You can roll them over with some coconut sprinkles, with crushed nuts etc.

Making them is really easy. All you need to do is, crush the chocolate into small pieces. Heat up the double cream with the butter to almost boiling. Melt the chocolate by pouring over the hot liquid and mix it nicely, until completely melted. Then you have to transfer the chocolate truffle mix into the fridge and let it cool for two hours. First thing you have to do after you take it out from the fridge, is to start rolling small chocolate balls with your hands and roll them over in some cocoa powder. That’s all you have to do. If you don’t like cocoa powder, you can always put some dried fruits, crushed nuts, coconut sprinkles etc.

Chocolate truffle mini 2Preparing a bonbon from scratch is a very satisfying process, because at the end you have an astonishing result – a jewelry in the pastry world!

Spelt Flour Muffins

Hello food lovers!

We have a special treat for you today – spelt flour muffins.

Spelt is by nature a whole-food. Unlike wheat, where vital nutritional bran and germ are usually removed during milling, the vital substances of spelt are found in the inner kernel of the grain. However this does not mean that spelt makes a heavy loaf. In fact the exact opposite is true. The real beauty of spelt is in its ability to make a really light, highly nutritious loaf with an appealing nutty flavour. The protein in spelt is such that when the flour is turned into bread it bakes well and results in a very light, soft textured loaf with good keeping qualities which doesn’t shed crumbs when sliced.

Spelt is rich in protein, and these proteins contain all of the nine essential amino acids needed by the human body. These amino acids are called “essential” because the body cannot manufacture them. If you don’t eat them, you don’t get them.

Consumers who tend to be cynical about the value of amino acids in our bodies should check out a partial list of the tasks they assist with:

  • Reducing joint inflammation
  • Preventing hair, skin and nail disorders
  • Lowering cholesterol
  • Reducing liver fat
  • Protecting kidneys
  • Reducing bladder irritation
  • Relaxation
  • Stress and depression reduction
  • Relieving migraine headaches
  • Assisting the immune system
  • Reducing the risk of artery and heart spasms
  • Calcium absorption
  • Collagen formation
  • Antibody, hormone and enzyme production
  • Transmission of signals between the nerve cells and the brain
  • Maintaining alertness
  • Memory improvement
  • Digestive and intestinal tract functioning
  • Muscle coordination
  • Mental vigor
  • Manufacture of other essential biochemical components

We made three different flavors – one with bananas and raisins, one with strawberries and coconut and one with blueberries.

2They are just adorable.

Let me now show you the recipe.

Spelt Flour Muffins
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12
  • 375g spelt flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 250ml milk
  • 125g butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Grease a 12-hole muffin tin.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl and stir in the sugar.
  3. Place the eggs, milk, butter and vanilla into a separate bowl and beat together.
  4. Fold the egg mixture into the dry ingredients with a metal spoon.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the muffin tin, filling them to just below the top. Place the muffin tin on the top shelf of the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  6. Let muffins cool in the tin for about 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to fully cool.

It’s fun doing them and improvising with the fruits or nuts that you can put inside them. You can put whatever you like in your muffins. You can place some fruits on the bottom of the tins, and then spoon over the mixture and top it up with some nuts for example, or with coconut sprinkles (like we did).



It’s time to say bye now, and see you soon!
