Salad with Cottage Cheese

As soon as I was done working out this morning, I started cooking for Christmas and finished only at 9 tonight. Needless to say I didn’t feel like cooking supper after that. Besides, I wasn’t really hungry, as I spent the entire day tasting this and tasting that, and, for some reason, even if I […]

Tomato, Clam, Olive and Asparagus Linguini

After having spent the day out shopping, I was glad that what was on my list for tonight was a quick and easy meal. My mom ended up staying the night yesterday, so she came shopping with us and stayed for supper again. I wish she could stay one more night and do the Christmas […]

Chicken Pear Walnut Pizza

Tonight was another pizza night. Again, I had my mom over for supper and my son, his girlfriend and my daughter. Believe it or not, we each had a different pizza! Mine was a little different, it was more like a salad on a crust, but I really liked it. I started by brushing the […]

Cooked Cereal… FAIL!

While eating my oatmeal last week, I thought I should try cooking my usual cereal. I mean, since I like it so much I am reluctant to skip days, but I also rediscovered oatmeal and remembered just how good it was, I thought maybe I could kill two birds with one stone and cook my […]

Flap Steak

Not sure this qualifies as “clean”, but flap is by far my favorite cut of beef and I just as to have it every now and then. My second favorite would be a good rib steak. I refrain from eating any of them too often as their fat content is quite high. But hey, I […]

Egg on Buckwheat Crêpe

Breakfast for supper! I like that! So simple, quick and easy. A buckwheat pancake, stuffed with spinach and cottage cheese, topped with an egg, served with a bowl of home made porkless beans! OK, the beans are kinda loaded with molasses, i.e. sugar, so not THAT healthy, but still, not that bad either.All in all, […]

Chicken Quesadilla

Can’t say I’m too happy with this picture. I find Quesadillas are very hard to make it so they look nice.They just look so boring just lying there in the plate. I’ll definitely have to work on that because it’s too bad, really. I think they are such a great dish! So very easy to […]

Falafel Pita

This is what was for supper tonight. Chickpeas made into a patty, served in a half  pita with tahini/yogurt sauce, sweet potato french fries and brussel sprouts. I really really enjoyed this, but I don’t think the kids were big fans. My daughter thought it was OK, but she wouldn’t have this every week. My son […]

Vegetable Stuffed Bread

This might not look amazingly good, but believe me, it was DELICIOUS! It also smells absolutely awesome. That one is definitely a keeper, but of course, I forgot to weigh and measure, so I can’t write an exact recipe down. It’s a recipe I adapted from my new bible. Initially, I really meant to follow […]

Shepherd’s Pie – The Healthy Way!

Here’s a good old classic revisited. While I have to admit that it was not THE most incredible Shepherd’s Pie I’ve had in my life, it was very good nonetheless and worthy of being referred to as comfort food.The only thing that needs adjusting, I think, is the moist factor. It was a bit on […]

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

I told you this was coming. Just thinking about it the other day gave me a serious craving for a good warm bowl of oatmeal. Well, it finally happened this morning. I traded my usual breakfast cereal for this. I really love my cereal and am always reluctant to skip even a day, but once […]

Salmon Teriyaki

I was cooking for two tonight, and my daughter will be eating later, so I went with something that she could easily re-heat when she gets back home tonight. Again, I went with a little Asian inspiration, very similar to something I’ve shared a couple of weeks ago, only this time I used salmon instead […]

Egg White Wrap

Another super quick meal! A simple egg white omelet topped with a few crumbles of Blue Cheese, a handful roasted Walnuts and a bunch of Arugula, wrapped in a Multigrain tortilla, served with a green salad and asparagus. A super good meal ready in under 10 minutes!
