Beet Soup

Fennel and Oven Roasted Beet Soup

While we’re on the subject of beets… you won’t mind if I squeeze in another beet recipe, will you? Don’t worry, my bag is almost gone. Almost! As I was searching my mind for creative ways to use beets, I thought it would be fun to make a beet soup. Since I’d never heard of […]

Ruby Masquerade Smoothie-1

Deep Ruby Beet Smoothie

This is a smoothie that is unarguably healthy. You see, when I came up with this one, I was in the mood for something that just SCREAMED healthy right at my face, so I grabbed a whole bunch of fruits and veggies from the fridge and just PACKED them real tight into my Magic Bullet. […]

Apple Pecan and Honey Caramel Cheesecake

Healthy Apple, Pecan and Honey Caramel Cheesecake

Looks like this is becoming a habit! I’m completely hooked on creating healthy desserts. I’m really glad that I changed my mind about desserts not having a chance in the world at being healthy. Although, I have to admit that I came THAT close to going back to my old thinking after someone made the […]

Baked Beans

Baked Beans… or Fèves sans lard

If you had asked me for a good Baked Beans recipe a couple of years ago, I’d’ve told you right off the bat that, in order to make GOOD baked beans, one must absolutely use the following 3 ingredients: A nice, big chunk of pork fatback Brown sugar, and lots of it A fair generous […]

More Power Gingerbread Smoothie | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

More Power Gingerbread Smoothie

I must’ve had this smoothie at least 8-9 times over the course of the last 2 weeks. Funny that I should say this, right after I mentioned in my previous post that I tend to get bored after eating the same thing 2-3 days in a row… You see, I was trying to create the […]

Raw Cauliflower Salad

Raw Cauliflower “Detox” Salad

So there was this one night last week when I got a bit caught off guard and didn’t have any plan for supper. Or rather, I had one, but didn’t feel like eating what was on the menu. Alright, I admit… I was gonna have leftovers, but I was NOT interested. Sometimes, eating the same […]

Walnut Butter Mosaic

Baklava Style Walnut Butter

Are you ready for this? This, my friends, is all the taste of Baklavas, without ANY of the guilt. This, is MY dream come true. I’ve always had a big thing for baklavas. No, wait, cross that. There. Baklavas just make me go completely gaga. I mean, completely, totally, GAGA! I do refrain from eating […]

Fall Harvest Salad

Fall Harvest Salad

This is a variation on a salad that my ex used to make a lot at this time of year. I’m really glad that he introduced me to that beautiful salad, because, frankly, it would’ve never occurred to me to cook all those veggies, dress them up and let them cool completely before eating them. […]

Beet Oatmeal Muffins

Beet n’ Oat Muffins

What do you do when you have a 10 pound bag of beets and don’t really care much for canning stuff? Just use them in everything, that’s what! Beets have such a gorgeous colour, I find they just make everything pretty. I really like beets in their raw state but absolutely hate peeling them. I […]

Squash Gratin

Spaghetti Squash Gratin

I love spaghetti squash. Unfortunately, it’s never really inspired me to create anything, per se… I seem to always be eating it the same way: as a replacement for pasta, topped with tomato sauce, or as a side dish with a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. Nothing much to it. I’d even […]

Pumpkin Pie Instant Baked Oatmeal

Long week-end wrap up and Instant Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Bake

What a great fantastic long week-end it has been for me. I had packed my agenda with so much stuff that I didn’t even have time to write my scheduled post yesterday… so you’re getting it today instead. Sorry about that! I just had to make the most of the last long week-end of the […]

Crazy Good yet Unbelievably Healthy Pumpkin Pie | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

Crazy Good yet Unbelievably Healthy Pumpkin Pie

*EDIT: While absolutely delicious, this pie isn’t your typical Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin pie. It’s more like a cross between a cheesecake and pumpkin pie, so it does have a bit of a tangy taste to it and isn’t really all that sweet. If a “traditional” sweet and spicy pumpkin pie is what you’re after, […]
