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!

Croque-Monsieur sans Ham

This dish is so super easy to make, it’s perfect for a quick lunch or for those nights when you are cooking only for yourself. Of course, you can still make them for several people, it’s just as quick! For one sandwich, you will need: 1 large, thick slice of bread (tonight, I chose whole […]

Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Sandwich

Low fat cream cheese, asparagus, smoked salmon, a few thin slices of red onions, alfalfa sprouts, Boston lettuce leaves, a few capers on a Multigrain bread, served with raw carrots and zucchini, julienned.

Butternut Squash Pizza

That was yesterday’s supper. Again, pizza made healthy. Whole grain pizza dough topped with tomato sauce, low fat mozzarrella cheese, oven roasted butternut squash, sage, goat cheese and walnuts. More pics!

Quick Chicken and Rice Soup

Today, I spent 4 hours getting pierced and tortured by ink filled needles, so comfort food was in order! What better fits the bill than a good old home made hearty chicken & rice soup? So simple and easy to make, all you need is an onion, a few carrots, some rice and some home […]
