Avocado Grapefruit Parfait

Avocado and Pink Grapefruit Parfait

I’ve really been on an avocado kick lately. Avocado and pink grapefruit, to be more precise. I don’t know where I got the idea that the two would work real well together, but one day, my brain went something like “Hey, I’m in the mood for avocado and pink grapefruit. Fix me something, will ya?” […]

Green Lentil and Cabbage Soup

Green Lentil and Cabbage Soup

After having indulged quite a bit way too much over the Holidays, I would gladly go for a bowl of this light and comforting soup tonight. I’m telling you, good ol’ chicken noodle doesn’t have much on that one. In fact, I think the two are pretty similar. Both are very filling, satisfying, super tasty and […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Energy Squares

Whenever I go through highly emotional times or circumstances, my stomach seems to lock up on me and completely forgets just how much it actually loves food. It […]

Vegetarian Cabbage Rolls

Vegetarian Cabbage Rolls

Told you I was gonna give you some cabbage this week! I wasn’t lying, you know! Truth is, even if I wanted to, I couldn’t even do that. I’m a very poor liar… I recently got this craving for cabbage rolls. Funny how I get cravings for some of my good old comfort foods lately. […]

Cauliflower, Apple and Cashew Salad

Cauliflower, Apple and Cashew Salad

I feel strangely out of place, giving you guys a cauliflower salad recipe when the Internet is literally  flooded with all sorts of recipes and pictures of Christmas sweets, treats and goodies. Mind you, with less than a week to go before D-Day, I guess it’s fairly normal. But hey, since we’re all going to […]

Orange Cranberry Oatmeal Cookie

Healthy Oatmeal Cookies in Orange Cranberry

Oh my faithfuls… I’m afraid I have to confess something to you. I’ve baked you yet another batch of oatmeal cookies this week. I know, I know, I already baked you a batch last week. I can almost hear you all say: “Oh no, not cookies again! Enough with the cookies, already! We want cabbage, […]
