Categorical imperative: never start a new week with the intention of starting the diet. Failure is assured. Yes, because apart from all good intentions, and personal or collective will, there is no chance to brighten our stormy relationship with Mondays. Imagine then that of returning from the Christmas holidays.
January is a cold, long, and tedious month for many of us. That’s why today we intend to cheer you up by offering you a dish full of good things, including vitamins, nutrients, and fibers that can cheer you up, both with the mind and with the body. The recipe is simple but incredibly tasty: organic spelled spaghetti (made by LUZI and Conad brand) with cream of pumpkin, zucchini, and sage.
How nice when one day is never the same as another! It is the sensation we experience every time we create a new recipe for our organic whole spelled specialties paired with always different and appetizing ingredients. Today it is the turn of black cabbage and anchovies from the Cantabrian Sea, a strip of the Atlantic Ocean that borders Spain and France.
The snow is soft, romantic, and pale. But above all very cold. This is why we need a lot of good and healthy energy to be able to face such an icy and relentless cold as the one that has hit our Peninsula in the last few hours. And that’s why we have prepared for you a recipe with organic wholemeal spelled pasta that will soon warm your hearts and tenderly embrace your thoughts: LUZI wholemeal organic spelled farfalle with artichokes and walnuts.
The menu of the week by LUZI is an important ally for your well-being. If you are looking for new stimuli to face a change in terms of lifestyle, we at LUZI want to provide you with a simple vadaemecum to face every day in the right way.
Each season is full of flavors, colors and scents. This is clear and visible to all. But what we perhaps ignore is that even the days of the week, although similar to each other, actually have their own characterization that makes them more unique than we think. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday represent for many of us a bridge in its most tenacious uphill arch, Thursday and Friday the gentle descent true Saturday and Sunday which, finally, represent rest, peace and freedom.
Do you recognize yourself? Do you recognize the fatigue of the first days of the week? If the answer is yes, we need to focus on a few, but clear right from the start, objectives to counter those efforts that make the usual first three days of our life’s work weeks so hard. And here they are, our next goals:
- physical well-being,
- mental well-being,
- healthy lifestyle.
Nothing could be easier, you will think, not knowing how difficult it is, in reality, to reach even one of them. A substantial help, however, is certainly what comes from proper nutrition. Associating foods in relation to their nutritional potential means, in fact, already understanding that our body needs care right from the first foods ingested of the day.
In fact, let’s think about breakfast. There are those who run and those who take it all calmly at their disposal. The secret is to always sit in front of a beautiful set table and consume fresh and healthy foods, such as cereals, yogurt, green tea, barley and fruit. This is the right nutrition for those who want to better face the day. A healthy walk, or a quicker jog, are another unbeatable trick to combat a sedentary lifestyle. Lunches and dinners it goes without saying that they need the utmost attention. In fact, always giving priority to vegetables and seasonal foods is a good way to defend your body from external attacks, strengthening your defenses. So in the autumn we will consume more pumpkins, mushrooms, for example; in summer cherries and aubergines, in winter oranges and lettuces. Spring is made for peas and turnips.

According to the Russian genius Chekhov, there is no summer and no winter for happy people. We at LUZI have found a remedy for those who have not yet reached that state of grace that leads them not to notice the cold and heat, because they are so happy. We do it with a new recipe: digestive-style biscuits with organic wholemeal spelled flour and organic LUZI corn. Delicious to eat with a cup of tea or a coffee or a jar of fruit yogurt, as a snack or for breakfast, certainly extraordinary as a base for fantastic fresh cakes and cheesecakes.
This is one of those recipes that should never be missing in any self-respecting kitchen notebook. It is the Spelled and Corn Donut with lemon. Soft, fragrant, versatile, suitable for summers and winters, elegant dinners, and quick snacks. The common denominator will remain the goodness granted to the well-being that the stone-ground cereals from the LUZI mill guarantee and with which we will create our small, daily, culinary work of art. A work that, tasted, takes us back to Sicily, to the land of citrus fruits and acrid perfumes mixed with the sea.
It is one of the best and healthiest regional gastronomic specialties you can eat: chickpea farinata. Not only a savory pie rich in proteins and particularly tasty but a real container of preciousness at an organoleptic and nutritional level. The recipe that we propose is typical of the Livorno area, but the Farinata also belongs to Liguria. Ideal for adults and children, for pregnant women and for diabetics, for athletes, and for all those who follow a controlled low-calorie diet.
It is precisely when the days get longer and the temperatures slowly rise to get us used to the concept of spring, jackets, and walks outside the city that he arrives, inevitable and unpleasant: the tail of the winter. And this year too he could not spare us his icy and intense passage. But even for this, we have been able to find a quick, healthy and tasty solution that will keep our hearts warm: rye ravioli stuffed with ricotta and chard.
