Creamy Avocado Pasta

Creamy Avocado Pasta

I’ve seen quite a few recipes for creamy avocado pasta over the past few months and I was pretty intrigued with the concept, so I decided to go ahead and give them a try. To be honest, though, I just went ahead and made this from memory, and from having mostly just watched the pictures, […]

Orange Chocolate Flourless Cake

Healthy Flourless Chocolate Orange Cake

I’m not gonna lie to you. This is not a healthy dessert alternative for the hard core sweet tooth in you looking for a healthier way to satisfy their cravings. This one is for the trained healthy eater. No. It’s even worse than that. This one is for the open minded trained healthy eater! It’s… […]

Juicy Pear Smoothie

Juicy Pear Smoothie

Please don’t throw tomatoes at me… Yes, I am giving you YET another smoothie recipe. I know, I know, it’s like I’m obsessed or something. But the thing is, ever since I returned from Cuba, I got completely hooked on smoothies and have been having one every single day of the week. Needless to say […]

Sweet Potato Spinach Pizza

Sweet Potato and Spinach Pizza

So today, I give you another one of my weird pizza combinations. While I’m not extremely pleased with my pictures, I did like the pizza so much that I still have to share it with you. It might sound a little strange really, but sweet potatoes on a pizza are just fantastic. They add so […]

Zucchini Carpaccio

Zucchini Carpaccio, Spaghetti Style

I don’t often do raw. Strangely enough, I think it’s incredibly complicated. It should be easy, since nothing gets cooked, right? Wrong. I find raw “cooking” has way too many restrictions for my taste. I’m not saying that I don’t find the concept intiguing or interesting, far from there. In fact, my mom left a […]

Pumpkin Zucchini and Quinoa Muffins-20

Pumpkin, Zucchini and Quinoa Muffins

Before I begin with today’s main event, please allow me to erm… brag a little, and also ask for your help… A little over a month ago, I submitted my Chicken and Sundried Tomato Pasta recipe to Hostel Bookers Recipe Search for their Backpackers Recipe Guide. Well, I am super excited to report that I […]

Apple Quinoa Instant Bake

Apple Quinoa Instant Breakfast Bake

It had been a while since I’d had an Instant “some grain” Bake for breakfast, which is surprising because I like them so very, very much. The thing is, though, they aren’t necessarily what you would call a light breakfast, so I tend to only have them as a post workout breakfast, and pretty often, […]

Ratatouille on Quinoa

Quick Ratatouille on Quinoa

Whenever I cook quinoa, I always make LOTS of extra and then use it in just about everything. I’m surprised I haven’t tried it in a smoothie just yet, but I get the feeling that it will eventually happen, and probably sooner than later! Last week, when my daughter asked me to make my Quinoa […]

Spicy Pumkin Smoothie

Spicy Pumpkin Smoothie

Looks like I’ve REALLY been lovin’ on smoothies lately. Guess you’ve kind of noticed… Surprisingly enough, though, I hadn’t even made a pumpkin version yet. Well, let me tell you, once I got that can of pumpkin puree opened up, I’ve been enjoying one of those babies every single day for the entire week! Do […]
