Healthy stir fry is a no brainer. Just combine some protein, vegetables and healthy noodles, and you are good to go. Soba noodles are quick to cook, usually made of a whole grain like buckwheat, which means they provide more fiber than wheat or rice noodles. Stir frying these noodles with a bunch of kale and other vegetables is a huge benefit. Also if you can find organic soba noodles like I did that would be great. I paid only $0.80 per package.

I have been craving some cheesy and hot spinach dip for a while now…Over 5 years I would say. Generally, any spinach dip recipe calls for a lot of mayo and/or cream cheese. So I have been avoiding it and honestly was super scared to make it. See, I’m not an appetizer girl because growing up we never served them and if we did, they were all made with mayo, cheese & fatty canned meats. I have very little experience baking appetizers…

I told you I was going to have a Meatless Monday and 1 vegan day a week. Yep, here we go… I made these vegan, vegetarian and gluten free Peanut Butter & Quinoa Protein Balls the other day. Yum and made with yams… I also made Pesto No Pasta Spaghetti the same day and will post the recipe shortly. Alex tried it, said it’s healthy and proceeded with his Thai takeout. LOL. He is not as much of a health nut like me, but still super healthy.

Oh boy, this one is not easy. I mean not easy for me to write this post, but good news is, it’s quite easy to choose a good domain name. Once you have decided you want to start a blog, it is time to choose a domain name. Domain name tells readers what your blog is all about. Let’s take my blog’s domain name, iFOODreal.com, as an example. The name with 3 www’s in front of it is a domain name. And a cute green apple is called favicon. Just another…

So, if one morning you woke up with a thought “I want to start a blog”, here are a few recommendations from my personal experience… 1. Take Your Time & Think About Your Blog Before I started this blog, I did a lot of thinking. Probably about a year. And that’s OK. See, when you have a young family – time is precious. I just wanted to make sure that every minute invested in my blog is worthwhile! What does it mean? I spend every free minute working on…

Let’s call it Greena Colada…I’m in a mood of name calling today…And talking…Go ahead. Get addicted. Guilt-free. Extremely healthy and addictively delicious. If you are tired of regular blah hard core green smoothie, try this one for  a change. I promise you won’t taste kale. It’s yummy! Very springy, summery and tropical. I get tired of my Magic Bullet Green Smoothie. Lately I’ve been using a lot of coconut milk in my recipes and this smoothie is no exception.

Skinny Orange Brown Rice

Happy Meatless Monday! Brown rice is one of the healthiest side dishes along with quinoa, farro, buckwheat and oats. Switching from white rice to brown adds fiber to your diet and keeps you full longer. It takes time to get used to it but once you do, you will be happy you did.
