Raw Beet, Carrot and Orange Salad

Raw Beet, Orange and Carrot Salad

Ever since I discovered that beets can be eaten, not only raw, but peel-on, I’ve been eating them A LOT more often. I’ve always been a fan of their great earthy and sweet taste, but found that they were way too complicated to prepare, so I often just opted to pass. I mean let’s face […]

Hot Cocoa Smoothie-10

Luscious Hot Chocolate Smoothie

I know I said I would be giving you guys a break with my smoothies… But you see, this one isn’t really a smoothie… It’s like a nice, warm, comforting cup of luscious and deliciously warm hot cocoa… Although, that’s not really true… For you see, it really is a smoothie. Only it’s warm. And […]

Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini Fritters

I told you I had to eat more vegetables… Yep!  Have to. Especially now that I have officially officialized (but not accepted!) the fact that my body doesn’t really agree with carbs. If I don’t keep my carb intake in check, I tend to bloat like no tomorrow and this, of course, makes me feel […]

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 […]
