6ways-toeat-super-seeds

This summer we have been extremely active, busy and seem to be on the go every weekend and even mid week. It has been an extremely hot summer and without AC in the house we have been escaping the heat either at the lake, ocean, park or on a shady hike. We finally reached the stage of life with no diapers and strollers where we can do more fun things as a family. Read more »

thumb1-clean-eating-zucchini-brownies-recipe

I baked these brownies 3 times last week. Everyone loved them so much but needless to say we are “brownied out”. The rest went to the freezer. Made with coconut oil, raw honey and whole wheat flour these Clean Eating Zucchini Brownies are super healthy. And I’m the one who doesn’t run away from organic wheat.:) It was my first time making zucchini brownies but after loving Black Bean Brownies so much I had a feeling I would love these too. Black bean brownies are very fudgy whereas the…

thumb-kale-blueberry-candied-pecans-salad

Uber delicious salad with curly or baby kale (best types for this salad in my opinion), organic soft goat cheese from pasture raised goats, local fresh blueberries and homemade candied pecans. All of this “swimming” in the Poppy Seed Dressing I posted yesterday. And all of this goodness is Clean Eating approved. It was so hard to keep the title of the recipe short but I almost did it.:) Ugh, I can’t stand long recipe names but sometimes there is no way around that.

thumb-clean-eating-poppyseed-dressing

As soon as I whisked this Clean Eating Poppy Seed Dressing together and did a first taste test, it reminded me exactly of a bottled version I stopped buying years and years ago. Creamy, sweet, with a hint of onion and a sea of poppy seeds. There is not much more to say about this dressing except you gotta make it and pour over some organic vegetables, fruits and nuts of your choice. My version of a killer poppy seed dressing salad coming next!

thumb-cookie-dough-ice-cream-clean-eating-recipe

I made this 4 ingredient ice cream for kids when they had friends over and it was all gone. No wonder as it was creamy, chocolatey and sweet. I can’t call it Clean Eating but this ice cream is WAY healthier than any of its counterparts. Made with organic coconut milk, local raw honey, organic chocolate syrup and organic Qi’a bars. Little bits of bar tasted like cookie dough. You can use any flavour you like. I used Roasted Peanut Dark Chocolate and Mocha Cocoa Hazelnut.

thumb-clean-eating-blueberry-muffins-recipe

These blueberry muffins made with spelt flour (whole wheat works too), applesauce and fresh blueberries came out fantastic!!! I have to admit I’m MUCH better baker today than even last year. As I was mixing the batter I was sceptical as my last year’s healthy version of blueberry muffins was…weird. That is me being honest. Back then I was still in a place trying to figure out my diet and cooking style. I looked at that recipe today again and cringed. What for is that banana?! It won’t be noticeable. And…

thumb-easy-vegan-kale-caesar-salad-recipe-clean-eating

Once upon a time last year, I have tried a vegan Caesar salad at a vegetarian restaurant that I couldn’t simply forget. Lacinato kale, beet chips and cornbread croutons. Hearty, crunchy and with zesty garlicky dressing. It was mind blowing! Upon coming home I googled for a similar recipe and couldn’t find any without calling for soaking cashews or using chickpeas. Just too much work to my liking. I even emailed the restaurant asking for recipe with no luck (understandable). So, I got to work.

thumb-buffalo-chicken-tacos-clean-eating-recipes

These tacos were a hit and almost guilt free because I made my own blue cheese sauce by simply combining 4% plain yogurt with crumbled blue cheese, a bit of salt and freshly ground pepper. Mmmm, hit the spot! I have been craving something spicy buffalo with salty creamy blue cheese forever! Must have been that heat wave. As you can imagine kids are not big fans of blue cheese so I made them garlic cucumber sauce. Kind of like tzatziki without draining cucumber juices. My youngest one still…

thumb-horizon-organic-lego-snack-house-beach

This project was so much fun! I didn’t sign up my kids for any camps this summer because they didn’t want to and frankly I didn’t mind a break from driving and a schedule. So, that means I gotta entertain…with a cup of coffee…My boys are 8 and 4, and now I feel like doing things together are more fun with less tantrums. In other words, I can handle my kids most of the times. I don’t do well with babies anymore…

thumb-saucy-green-beans-chicken-clean-eating

This 4 ingredient dinner is embarrassingly easy and as the name suggests very saucy. Who doesn’t like sauce?! My tomato sauce happens to be healthy and low calorie though. I wouldn’t call it a quick recipe but all work is really done by the stove and not you. Tomato paste really adds more depth to the tomato sauce. Plus this is a mess free recipe which I should develop more of. I spend hours cleaning my kitchen every single day.
