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! 😉 […]

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 […]
