Healthy 20 minute skillet the whole family will love + high in protein and low in carbs.

main-asian-salmon-green-beans--stir-fry-recipe

Wild salmon, crispy green beans, meaty mushrooms stir fried with soy sauce, ginger and garlic, then topped with sesame seeds and green onions. 20 minute dinner that is high in protein, rich with heart healthy fats and low in carbs. Delicious! My kids were licking the plates.

This dish reminded me of my favourite Asian fusion restaurant – P.F. Chang’s. We always go there for dinner while in the US. Lots of healthy options, the staff is always welcome to customize your order and the the kids menu is amazing! Read more »

thumb-eggplant-pepper-marinara-rice-recipe

  Healthy and affordable 30 minute vegetarian dinner. You won’t miss the meat! Sautéed eggplant and bell peppers with simple marinara sauce and served over brown rice - a quick and healthy vegetarian dinner. Full of flavour and affordable too. This dish was delish! I love eggplant and am completely puzzled why many people don’t. It’s highly underrated vegetable in America. Its texture makes a great substitute for meat. Once cooked, it develops tender texture and complex rich flavour. In my Ukrainian opinion, it tastes best with tomatoes, garlic…

thumb-caffe-mocha-overnight-oats-recipe

  5 minutes and you have a healthy breakfast on-the-go for the next 5 days. This overnight oatmeal is like eating dessert for breakfast – creamy, sweet and chocolate-y. And it has extra coffee that I’m sure any mama needs on a weekday morning. If you are not a fan of protein powder, I have included substitute options. I love using protein powder because it is usually naturally sweetened, so I can keep my food low in sugar. You can use stevia as well.

thumb1-baked-zucchini-fritters-recipe

  Made healthier with whole wheat flour and baked instead of fried. Same crispy. As a kid, I ate a lot of vegetable fritters: potato, zucchini and cabbage. My grandma always tried to stretch seasonal produce to a max. She often managed to make soup, main and side dish for five people from one whole chicken.Zucchini fritters were a staple in our house. With lots of fresh dill, onion and garlic.

  Crispy on the outside and juicy inside, this healthy 30 minute dinner is a winner! Tender salmon fillets with caramelized sweet honey crust, with a hint of garlic and topped with green onions. Clean, simple and delicious! I served it a meal prep style – with cooked quinoa and steamed broccoli. This is how athletes eat. At least, that’s what an Instagram tells me..

thumb-pad-thai-zucchini-noodle-salad-recipe

  One meal salad that hits the Thai food spot, with half amount of calories & in under 20 minutes. Oh my, this cold and saucy Pad Thai Salad wow-ed me and I thought I can’t surprise myself anymore. Somehow, for the longest time I thought bean sprouts would go so well together with zucchini noodles, and I was right. Crunchy and fresh veggies, combined with lightly browned tofu, scrambled eggs, sweet shrimp, roasted peanuts and “drowning” in healthy version of Pad Thai sauce.

thumb-garlic-parmesan-zucchini-tomato-bake-recipe

  Low fat, quick and healthy zucchini casserole. 5 minutes of prep time and dinner is served! We love Parmesan Zucchini Sticks and I have baked tomatoes topped with Parmesan cheese a numerous # of times. So, I thought why not to combine both with some garlic and make a zucchini casserole?! Cheese with garlic is always a winning combo. In Ukraine, garlic and dill go together like lime and cilantro in Mexico. Great success! This zucchini and tomato bake literally took me 5 minutes of chopping and other 25 minutes I was grilling Lemon Rosemary…

thumb-berry-banana-quinoa-oatmeal-breakfast-bake-recipe

  Delicious oatmeal alternative that is high in protein & takes care of breakfast for a week.  This healthy breakfast has been waiting for me every morning during the past week. Delicious, nutritious and the best part is I didn’t have to cook it. Just place a slice on my plate, top with a dollop of non-fat Greek yogurt (highly recommended) and a few berries or bananas. I even didn’t warm it up because we decided to get rid of microwave for health reasons.

FG-peanut-butter-swirl-black-bean-brownies-recipe

  Healthy gluten free brownies made with no flour, refined sugar or butter. Brownies…I remember first time trying a brownie on an airplane, on my way to Mexico last year. My immediate thought was “I could eat this every day!”. Believe it or not, that airplane brownie was pretty darn good, probably because being full of cr@p. And yes, I have never had a brownie in 13 years of living in Canada. True fact. I love dark chocolate and I love peanut butter. Who doesn’t?! A few months…
