Thankful Thursday: Asparagus pistachio risotto – Electric Blue Food


Hello all! Welcome to another edition of THANKFUL THURSDAY! I’d like to introduce you to EVA, from ELECTRIC BLUE FOOD.


Eva is a photographer and foodie currently living in Sweden. She loves traveling, landscape photography, live music, writing and food, especially preparing desserts. She’s had a blog on and off for the past 10 years, becoming more dedicated when she moved to Sweden in 2014. Here is a bit from Eva in her own words:

“I was born and raised in north-western Italy from a Polish mom and an Italian dad. I was raised bilingual, the best thing my parents could gift me with, and have picked up a few more languages along the way – currently in the process of learning the sixth. During my university years I spent six months in Norway and another six months between Canada and the United States. After graduating I have also lived in Poland for two years, where I met a wonderful guy who shared my same passion for Northern Europe. Together we decided to move to Sweden.”

If you’d like to read more of her story, follow this link to her ABOUT page.

Eva has a PHENOMENAL site. It’s filled with wonderful recipes, beautiful photography and some stories of her travels. I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Eva for following my blog for almost a year now. (10 months to be exact!) I’m so appreciative and grateful to have you on my team.

Check out the recipes below and please take a few minutes to head over to Eva’s site .  I think you’ll be pleased with what you find: tasty recipes and beautiful photos!

About Tamara Hoerner (1349 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
