main-clean-eating-coleslaw-recipe

Coleslaw is such a classic and with summer right around the corner I had to “clean up” this recipe and add to my collection. Because let’s be honest, who wants to eat a cup of mayo salad?! I certainly don’t considering 1 tbsp of mayo is 110 calories and contains 11 g of fat. Bad cholesterol through the roof guaranteed. Read more »

thumb-blueberry-crumb-bars-clean-eating-recipes

I have been waiting all winter long to make crumb bars, cobblers and crisps thinking fresh blueberries, strawberries and raspberries come Spring time… Ironically, knowing what I know now, EWG in one report finding 38 various pesticides on strawberries and raspberries that DO NOT wash off with water, I ended up baking these Blueberry Crumb Bars with frozen blueberries LOL. Organic fresh berries in May in Vancouver are not that affordable, frozen – twice cheaper.

thumb-clean-eating-chocolate-ice-cream-blendtec-review-giveaway-recipes

Light, creamy and full of chocolate, this 3 ingredient Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream is our family’s favourite I have been making all winter long. Just been waiting for hot weather to hit our neck of the woods to share it with you. I find this ice cream easier to make than a traditional dairy one, and I believe it is tastier and healthier. My kids absolutely LOVE it and do not object a slight coconuty flavour. Because this ice cream is sweetened with meaty Medjool dates, it doesn’t freeze into a…

thumb-eating-bbq-beans-slow-cooker-recipe

These BBQ baked beans were such an accident and yet the most delicious beans you will ever make with the least effort! Great for potlucks and summer BBQ’s. I had a bag of organic dried pinto beans sitting on my pantry floor for months now. It was waiting for beans to be cooked and usually frozen for later use but this week we are expecting a company and I will be making my favourite The Biggest Loser Crock Pot Turkey Chili (with venison this time). It was Monday morning, I…

thumb1-sesame-cauliflower-bell-peppers-clean-eating-recipes

10 minute Clean Eating side dish easy enough for a weeknight dinner. This recipe serves 4 people and because it was so amazing we had no leftovers. Kids loved it! One night I doubled the recipe and made a second batch for my neighbour who brought me a roasted unmedicated chicken from Pomme (West Coast natural foods store). So, that was dinner. I think kids had pasta as well. You could serve this Sesame Cauliflower and Bell Peppers on top of brown rice, quinoa or any whole grain…

thumb-clean-eating-baked-thai-salmon-recipe

In our household, we have been enjoying salmon with sweet chili sauce for 14 years now. In winter, I bake it in the oven and in summer months Alex grills it on a soaked in water cedar plank. Second version is unbelievable tasty but oven method is as good minus the cedar smoky flavour. Ever since we went 90% organic, we are more aware of GMOs and coming up with a homemade version of Thai Sweet Chili Sauce was a must to keep enjoying our Thai salmon. That sauce…

thumb-clean-eating-sweet-chili-thai-sauce-recipe

Thai sweet chili sauce has a special place in my heart as it was the first store bought sauce I ever had. Thick, sweet and with a heat kick, I tried it in a grilled cedar plank salmon recipe. When me and Alex first got together, he introduced me to a couple who immigrated from Ukraine many years ago. I was 20, they were early 40s, I knew nothing about cooking and Natasha was an amazing cook! We had no kids, they did, so automatically we hung out at their place all…

thumb-lemon-blueberry-overnight-smoothie-jars-clean-eating-recipes

One day I got tired of Overnight Oats and Chia Pudding, and thought “What if I combine both and soak them in a flavoured smoothie?!”. I came from an evening walk and whipped these up in 5 minutes. Honestly, these breakfast jars were amazing! Even my kids ate them for a snack no problem and it is not easy to feed them chia pudding. Really depends on a flavour and consistency.
