Happy Meatless Monday everyone! I made this Spinach Lentil Soup last night and updated the photos of this recipe from last year. My kids ate all of it, even picky 3 year old.:) This soup is vegan, vegetarian and gluten free. Virtually 0 fat, low in sodium, cholesterol and full of complex carbs. Make for dinner tonight and have lunch ready for tomorrow. Meatless Monday is an international campaign that began in 2003 with a goal to encourage people to not eat meat on Mondays. Focusing on your own health…

This black bean brownies recipe is THE BEST brownies recipe I ever tried! Well, besides all of my other brownies recipes: healthy pumpkin brownies, no bake black bean brownies, healthy peanut butter brownies and healthy zucchini brownies (yes, lots of brownies recipes). Better than any butter+sugar brownies because they are sugar free black bean brownies! I held off making black bean brownies for a while because I knew they wouldn’t have a crust on top like the unhealthy versions. WHO CARES?! It didn’t matter. We gobbled up the whole pan…

Cauliflower pizza crust has gained a huge popularity in the past few years among low carb dieters and mainly fitness enthusiasts. Because you are indulging with pizza, America’s favourite comfort food, and not wrecking your nutrition numbers. I held off making cauliflower pizza because I simply was confused by various cooking methods and knew it would take me some time to come up with a foolproof recipe. And I was right, it took me 3 pizzas and 2 days (on and off) and here we are. This cauliflower pizza…

“Nay” to drinking wine & spirits and “Yay” to baking stage in my life goes on… Now that my freezer is stocked with healthy peanut butter pie (I seriously can’t even look at it anymore = wish you were my neighbours) and Valentine’s Day is next week (hint-hint, honey), I crave all things chocolate. Like who doesn’t like chocolate?! If you don’t, that makes you not human and leaves more of THIS for us. I really don’t bake have never baked much until recently. Whaaaaaaaaat?! As much as I hate McDonald’s,…

Well, guys, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Do you celebrate? Me and Alex do and don’t. Depends on a year. Some years we celebrate the first potty trip and OMG-we-are-alone-for-2hours-and-it’s-quiet moment more than Valentine’s Day and Christmas. Just wait until you get here, you shall see! No, seriously, we always celebrate Valentine’s Day and end up making a nice dinner at home. We are just not a restaurant-type of people majorly because of the food, price and kids. And if you are like us and prefer…

These whole wheat pretzels are so easy, healthy and oh so much fun to make with kids. I know many of you, including myself, are scared of the yeast dough. I’m more of a salad and crock pot girl and I pulled these off. I remember one night my mom came home from work and said she had amazing buns recipe. FYI, my mom is not a baker at ALL. Like not a tiny bit. So, she made the dough and it wouldn’t rise. She made a second…

Well, “hello” awesome avocado lettuce salad salad. In the last month, I made you at least 10 times. Because you are so awesome! 3 rules for making this salad OSOOOOOOOOM: 1. Use any veggies you like => see rule #2 2. Never-ever-ever skip the romaine lettuce & avocado => see rule #3 3. Garlic + dill = a match made in heaven by Ukrainians. For real. I grew up on this kind of salads in summer. We didn’t have fresh veggies available in winter months. Can you imagine?!…

Modernized Mexican food in a form of Mexican kale salad, Mexican bean salad and Mexican turkey meatballs is the best for get togethers. These Mexican potato skins are perfect for the game days, whatever games you play and watch.:) You can serve them right on a baking tray. Just sprinkle with some fresh cilantro, throw in a few slices of lime and jalapenos, add a jar of salsa, even Greek yogurt (I was obviously out) => you are good to go. I don’t think Mexicans eat much potatoes but…

I feel like I’ve been cheating…on my wine…with this healthy peanut butter pie. Let me explain. On January 1 I woke up and thought it would be cool to live a year without wine or any spirits. If you just joined, let me put it this way => I’m not an alcoholic, far away from it, but I like a few glasses of vino on weekends. I got 2 kids and I do really-really-really need to vent at times. The truth is, we all need to. So, I had to figure out…
