Fit veg carpaccio

When & How

Lunch: an excellent detox side to seafood and egg dishes. I recommend trying it with salmon, shrimps or trout, delish!  

Dinner: when you don’t feel like having a full meal but still want to nourish the body. You can add a spoon of yogurt (dairy or vegan) or enjoy it as it is. 

Appetizer: A fit appetizer or a fit dish to have during your “aperitivos.” Your guests are going to love it!



1 cucumber – peeled and thinly sliced crosswise

1 celery stalk – thinly sliced crosswise 

(1 serving)

½ avocado – thinly sliced crosswise

1 bush of fresh parsley – chopped

4-5 fresh mint leaves – chopped

1 tsp hemp seeds 

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 

30g quinoa (dry weight)

Salt & pepper


  1. Heat a large sauté pan at medium-high heat (without olive oil) until it is extremely hot. Pour in the quinoa keeping it in a single layer. Shake the pan regularly to keep the quinoa from burning. Cook for about 1-2 minutes or until puffed up.
  2. Transfer all the veggies and avocado to a large plate. Sprinkle puffed quinoa, hemp seeds, minced mint and parsley. Toss with olive oil and season with salt & pepper.



Cucumbers contain azulene which has anti-inflammatory, decongesting and vaso-protecting properties. So it helps with cellulite and water retention.


Extremely rich in fiber, celery keeps in check blood sugar and cholesterol. It also helps with bowel regularity. 


A true and real anti-aging fruit due to its richness in monounsaturated fat (the good one), Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Glutathione, and lutein, all indispensable for skin health and glow. This fruit is also rich in potassium (more than a banana!), an essential mineral for body fluid balance and so it helps eliminate water retention. 


This plant has potent antimicrobial, antioxidant and digestive properties.
