Wax Beans and Asparagus Salad

Wax Beans and Asparagus Salad

I have a question. No, let me rephrase that… I have a real silly question. Why is it that green beans are called… well, GREEN beans, whereas yellow beans are called WAX beans? In French, we call them “Fèves vertes” and “Fèves jaunes”. From what I understand, Green beans are even referred to, in the […]

Asparagus and Cheese Quiche - Grain Free

Looking back on Lent

Another Lent has come and gone. Although I can’t say it’s been cakewalk all the way, I can still affirm that, unlike last year, where I went on some some sort of a manic sugar eating craze as soon as it was over, this year has been an extremely positive and rewarding experience. Much like […]

Upside Down Pineapple Cake-

Upside Down Pineapple [Breakfast] Cake

Here’s another recipe that came this close to not appearing on The Healthy Foodie… Oh, not because the cake wasn’t good, far from there. It was actually delicious. Only because I made a stupid mistake, which made my cake look sort of ugly and  I wasn’t conviced that I wanted to immortalize the evidence of […]

Kale Chickpea and Apple Salad

Kale, Chickpea and Apple Salad

Reading your comments every day is what keeps me going, is what makes this whole blogging thing worthwhile for me. You have […]

Vegetarian Moussaka

Vegetarian Moussaka

One of my coworkers was telling me about how he’d recently enjoyed this marvelous vegetarian lasagna at a restaurant that he’d just gone to, and he described it with such passion that he gave me this irresistible craving to have some, right then and there. Since, as you probably know, I’m off grains for a […]

Buckwheat Banana Muffins

Grain Free Banana Muffins

I made almond milk again. I’m officially hooked, and I definitely plan on making this on a regular basis. As in every week. This basically means that I will be turning into a real “almond meal from milk” manufacture. So expect quite a few recipes using just that… That leaves me wondering, though… how much […]

Caramelized Pears Chocolate Goat Cheese Smoothie

Caramelized Pear, Chocolate and… Goat Cheese Smoothie

No… I did not! I didn’t dare… did I?  Oh yes, I did! I added goat cheese to a smoothie. A luscious, sweet, chocolaty smoothie. With creamy goat cheese, and caramelized pears. Oh, the decadence! The idea came to me while discussing with Joann and Nora after I posted this Creamy Chicken, Avocado and Goat […]
