12 Apr Arugula and Beets Salad with Almond and Cottage Cheese

One of the concerns I have with our family meals, is the portions of vegetables/fruits. Some say they have to be 7, others already speak about 9.

This pudding is inspired in a recipe much appreciated in the north, and I guarantee that it tastes even better than it looks. It has a velvety, rich, creamy texture and it's extremely hard to resist ...
