Oatmeal Patties

PRINTABLE RECIPE This dish, my mom used to make back when I still lived at home with my parents. Needless to say that, at the time, I was not too impressed with healthy and / or vegetarian cooking. However, I always really liked this dish. I can’t say I’ve had it too often though, although […]

Grilled Chicken Breast and Guilt Free Caesar Salad

Grilled Chicken Breast and Guilt Free Caesar Salad.  This salad was an experiment which turned out not too bad.  I got the inspiration while watching “Eat, Shrink and Be Merry” a few weeks ago. While I really liked the idea of a healthy Caesar, I thought their version was still not quite clean enough. It […]

Spinach Lasagna – Fail!

LASAGNA FAIL So I had my mom over for supper tonight. Luckily, my son wasn’t working so he was here too and invited his girlfriend. With my daughter, that made 5 of us around the dinner table. That doesn’t happen all that often here. So I decided to make lasagna. Well, in fact, I had […]

Sunday Morning Indulgence!

Sunday Morning Indulgence! Now, I totally blame this one on Tumblr! I have seen so many pictures of yummy pancakes on here, it gave me this unbelievable craving for buttermilk pancakes, which I hadn’t had in YEARS! So, since I don’t believe that one can eat clean 100% of the time, I elected to go […]

Smoked Salmon Pizza

Smoked Salmon Pizza Not exactly low cal, but still extremely healthy! Pizza that doesn’t even qualify as cheating. I’m all for that! This one starts with a whole grain pizza crust (made with whole wheat flour, spelt flour and oats) and is topped with cottage cheese and low fat mozzarella as well as a few rings of red […]

Shrimp Teriyaki Express

I don’t usually post on Friday nights because, well, I don’t get home until quite late in the evening and will usually just grab a fruit or a light snack when I get home. But tonight, I had a real craving for sauted vegetables, namely Broccoli and Bean Sprouts. So I made myself an Express Shrimp Teryiaki. […]

Cantaloupe

Man, I love fruit! This was tonight’s post work-out snack. As for supper, well, sorry, there will be no picture tonight: I had leftover quinoa from the other night and I didn’t even bother to reheat it, it was just as good right out of the fridge. Now I think it’s way worth my taking the […]

Post Work-out Snack

Post Work-Out Snack! This, sometimes, is what will take me through a work-out. Just thinking that when I am done, I will get to sit down and enjoy a nice bowl of fresh fruit with a couple of teaspoons of plain yogourt. And when I’ve been really really good, like tonight, I will even sprinkle […]

Quick Egg White Omelet

Asparagus / Cottage Cheese Egg White Omelette with Salad and Julienned Beets I have to admit that the first time I tried Egg White Omelettes, I was extremely sceptical. I mean, come on, you can’t have an egg without the yolk, that’s where all the good flavour is!!! Egg whites man, think about it, they taste […]

Healthy Burger and Sweet Potato Oven Baked Fries

Burger! The healthy way! Although I can’t say I am extremely pleased with this picture, I think it was a meal worthy of sharing… I try not to eat too much meat, especially not beef, even less pork. I tend to stick to chicken breasts, fish and seafoods. But the kids seem to enjoy beef and […]

Chickpea and Mixed Veggies Quinoa

QUINOA WITH CHICK PEAS AND MIXED VEGETABLES I just love quinoa. This, I think, is the greatest new food discovery that I made this year. I find that, not only it tastes great, but it also looks great. The tiny little grains are just super cute and they seem to just pop in your mouth, almost like caviar. […]

“Fattoush” Inspired Chickpea Salad

“FATTOUSH” INSPIRED CHICK PEA SALAD Nice, light, fresh, yum! After spending the day in the kitchen, this is what I was inspired to eat for supper. I had no one to cook for but myself tonight, so I went with something fairly simple. Mind you, most of what I cook is fairly simple… Here’s what […]

Refreshing Drink

This is one of my favorite post-workout drinks. When I’m all done and showered up and I get to relax, sit down in front of TV, watch one or two episodes of the Gilmore Girls with my daughter. Sooooo refreshing! It’s got fresh cranberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries (I use whatever berries I have on […]

Zucchini & Beets Mini Breads

The second batch I made was Zucchini / Beets. I am really happy with how they turned out. I should’ve taken a picture of the one I broke open (couldn’t resist any longer, I HAD to eat one!), they look just like Christmas inside. All the red and the green, plus the black from the […]
