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 onion before to hit the… View Post
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. I took maybe 10 minutes… View Post
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 time to write the recipe… View Post
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 a little bit of pure… View Post
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 like, well, AIR! Well, let… View Post
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 sometimes complain that we don’t… View Post
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. Now if only my kids could… View Post
“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 went into it: Ingredients One… View Post
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 hand), a little bit of… View Post
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 raisins, it’s a thing of… View Post
Today has been a good day, I guess, for I spent the entire day cooking. The funny thing is I don’t have much to show for it. I don’t think you guys would like to see pictures of piles of beets waiting to be peeled or inside round getting ground. I did, however, make my usual batches of mini-breads. The… View Post
Pancakes for breakfast! I usually have cereal for breakfast. Day in, day out. Oh, not the store bought kind of stuff, of course, I make my own. I’ve been eating cereal every morning for the past, well, at least 10 months, and I just can’t seem to get bored with it. In fact, I look forward to my morning bowl… View Post
Ratatouille in the making!
Ratatouille served on Spaghetti Squash with a little bit of Goat Cheese crumbled on top. And to think my daughter missed this. Oh, she will be soooo disappointed. (I’ll make another one soon, promise!)
Broccoli and Sharp Cheddar Soup! Topped with a few Walnuts. So easy to make, and so good for you too! One of my favorites. And that little Multigrain bun complements it absolutely perfectly.
Looks like this is turning into a daily food diary! I’m really liking this. Please bear with me as my equipment is pretty minimalist and my ligthing really sucks, but I am trying to make the best out of what I have. Tonight we had Chicken a la king served on toast. Yes, it’s possible to prepare this in a healthy… View Post
Darn, my camera’s battery died! I only had time to take 2 photos when my camera died on me. Plus, when it did, I had just realised I forgot to sprinkle the nuts on my pancake before to take my picture! Double darn! Oh well, this picture will have to do for now. I shall post a better pic when… View Post
I can’t decide which photo I like best. So let’s have ‘em both!
