Delicious, moist and fluffy muffins made with whole ingredients and are naturally sweetened.

last-main-healthy-blueberry-muffins-recipe

I could say with confidence, these blueberry muffins qualify as bakery style muffins, just half the size. Seriously, who needs to eat that big of a muffin in one sitting?! So, my muffins are as fluffy, moist and delicious as any traditional white flour muffins with bazillion of streusel toppings, just so much healthier! Made with whole wheat flour, sweetened with banana and just a bit of maple syrup, and bursting with blueberries. You get “bleeding” and bursting blueberries with every bite. You could also use frozen blueberries or any other berries like raspberries or blackberries. Read more »

  Healthy 30 minute dinner with black beans and corn, topped with a bit of cheese, cilantro and scallions. Easy and delicious! Summer is flying by so fast, I’m afraid I won’t have enough time to cook all the dishes I have in mind with summer’s fresh produce. I admit, I prefer grocery shopping to the clothes one. I can wonder aisles of food for hours. My preferred way to do it – on my own. Can you blame me?! Every time I enter my local farm market…

thumb-blueberry-avocado-toasted-pecan-quinoa-salad-recipe

  Healthy one meal salad with Lime Basil Dressing. Perfect for summer and keeps well refrigerated. Did I tell you, guys, I stopped eating any bread products? Even Ezekiel ones?! Just occasionally I would eat half a toast with peanut butter. It happened unintentionally. By eating more whole foods like grains, seeds, vegetables and fruits, I had no room left for bread. And yes, I did see a change in my body definition. This quinoa salad is one of my new whole food meals. Perfect for hot summer days….

thumb-zucchini-banana-bread-recipe

  Rich in fiber, low in fat and sugar without sacrificing the flavour. You won’t believe how healthy, easy and moist this vegan bread is! Despite the (awesome) days when I look for any chance to open my fridge or drive in a cold car are still here, I baked. Early in the morning. I just couldn’t wait for cooler days because I made this bread 3 times and it’s just so awesome! You have to make it while zucchinis and summer are here. I promise, I didn’t…

thumb3-mediterranean-zucchini-sticks-recipe

  Crunchy baked zucchini chock full of juicy veggies, golden feta cheese and fresh parsley. Ready in 25 minutes and taste great hot or cold. It’s zucchini season, yay! I have recently discovered my love for raw zucchini, especially in a form of chips. Slice them thinly and use instead of chips to dip into salsa, hummus or a layered dip. This way, you can enjoy more of an appetizer itself. Even with a healthy dip, calories add up quickly when digging into it with chips.

thumb1-healthy-creamy-mexican-salad

  Hearty vegetables tossed with a tangy cumin flavoured dressing. Perfect for hot summer days and 10 g of fiber per serving will fill you up. Oh, this kale salad is sooo good! A heat wave hit Vancouver and I have been spending every day at the beach. Plus, my mom has been visiting, which is a precious gift. Needless to say, it’s too hot and little time to cook. My new gas stove warms up the kitchen way faster than my old electric one. Salads and grill are my…

thumb-chicken-garden-veggies-quinoa-casserole-recipe

  Under 40 minutes and you have a healthy dinner with leftovers the whole family will love. Use any firm veggies you got on hand. Sautéed chicken with bell peppers, zucchini, broccoli and quinoa. All in one skillet and takes less than 40 minutes to make. I do love simple dinners and my chicken. My garden is not overflowing with vegetables but my local farm market is.

  Healthy breakfast idea with no added sugar, high in fiber and protein. Freezer and kid friendly! Basically, breakfast for “lazy” healthy people who love chocolate and protein. I fit in. And I guarantee you will love these muffins – simple ingredients, one bowl and can be enjoyed on the go. They are also: freezer friendly, double batch necessary, playground/hockey game snack, purse-able, high in protein, fiber and chocolate. Zucchini make the cups moist and bananas add natural sweetness. No added sugar here. My kids, who hate zucchini, went crazy…

NEWthumb-Quinoa-Tabouleh-Salad-Recipe

  Refreshing quinoa salad chock full of fresh garden vegetables. Keeps your kitchen cool and can be prepped ahead, which makes it perfect for a potluck or a backyard party. I posted Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad last year but the pictures didn’t do justice to it. Plus, quite frankly, I wasn’t testing my recipes thoroughly back then. With hot summer days being here (when did that happen?!) I decided to give this salad a makeover. Fresh, crunchy, lemony and minty, this salad is perfect for your next backyard party and will keep your kitchen…

thumb-greek-salad-layered-dip

  Fresh and crispy party dip that can be prepped in advance. Serve with whole grain crackers or celery sticks for a low carb snack. I do not find clean eating hard, I love it! The hardest part about it is socializing. To be specific, a lack of healthy options available when I’m not at home. With summer here, I get a panic attack every time we are invited to a BBQ party. I have a vivid picture of the table in front of my eyes – simple…
