One of my mom’s baked fish recipes. Adapted, lightened up, non-fried…What else?! Why? Hold your breath…Original recipe calls for 2 cups of mayo. OK, now breathe.:) I can’t believe we were eating it this way for years. I got away with it because I was a child, I guess. But honestly, everything was made with mayo. That’s the only dressing type of sauce we had back then. So everything was made with mayo. Basically, you could throw a bunch of any ingredients together and as long as you…

Some years ago I was visiting my friend Jennifer and she made this salad. OMG, yummy! So this is Jennifer’s Broccoli Salad recipe and not mine. All credit goes to her. The truth is I know broccoli is very good for you and you probably know that too, but I’ve never been a huge fan of it (my kids LOVE it though – weird but I’ll take it:)). Besides adding it to my “gross”, according to some Instagram user, Magic Bullet Green Smoothie and dipping into hummus (since ranch dressing…

Roasted Sesame & Peanut Butter Protein Bar Recipe

Homemade protein bar is my saver when I’m shopping, out with the kids or any time I know I won’t have access to a healthy food. As well is my Magic Bullet Green Smoothie ( I add a scoop of brown rice protein powder to it and some people think its gross:)). Protein bars cover healthy fats, carbs and protein and the smoothie has my greens. I’m good to go! That’s why I never eat junk when I’m out.

This easy appetizer recipe takes minimum preparation time, makes great finger food for parties and won’t hurt your waistline. Only 43 calories, 2 g of fat and 5 g of carbs per 1 tart. Soft goat cheese flavoured with fresh rosemary and garlic, topped with crunchy pecans and sweet chewy craisins, all wrapped in a freshly baked crispy phyllo pastry. You have to be careful with goat cheese, it’s fatty. To reduce the calories and increase protein I have added

This healthy Italian dish requires no precooking – “just throw all the ingredients in the crockpot and forget about it” type of recipe. Easy chicken thigh recipe! You can also stock up on the ingredients in advance and make this delicious healthy Chicken Marinara any time.

One ingredient in this recipe will shock you but you’ll never be able to taste it. This started out as a protein brownie recipe experiment and ended up as a chocolate cake with an amazing no butter coconut frosting. Honestly, I have no regrets and will attempt to recreate it as a brownie on a later day but for now my whole family is enjoying the way it is. The kids eat it super fast, do not ask for any food for a couple hours as this cake…

4 Ingredient Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

I originally started experimenting with so popular 3 ingredient banana protein pancakes – banana, protein powder and egg whites. They are not bad but the texture reminds me more of a sweet omelette. After about at least 10 different variations of ingredients I have settled on these oatmeal protein pancakes. Fluffy enough, not too chewy, sweet in moderation, completely healthy, packed with 5 g of protein and only 43 calories each! Sounds good to me. I usually have 4-5 pancakes and am good till lunch. My favourite toppings…

Eggnog, candy canes (least of my favourites), Glade spruce and apple cinnamon candles (love these on sale – I’m cheap), brandy beans (not everyone knows those but I have a special relationship with them), gingerbread man and shortbread cookies…Christmas is here! Hard to believe. It’s like a hurricane – comes unexpected although everyone knows it’s coming, makes a mess and leaves us to recover. And let me guess, 1 out of 3 has a New Year’s resolution to…to…to go to the gym! That’s right.:)

Stuffed pork tenderloin with low fat mozzarella cheese, spinach, sun dried tomatoes and basil. Sounds like little Italy to me and particularly it reminded me of a Caprese salad. But instead of using buffalo mozzarella we are going low fat.:) Pork tenderloin is one of my favourite animal based sources of protein. After the chicken breast of course. It’s lean, tender and is easy to cook. I obviously got tired of chicken breasts and it’s too cold to grill the pork tenderloin outside, so I decided to roast…

Spinach Salad with Raspberries, Goat Cheese and Candied Pecans

I have been making this spinach salad for years. Every time I make it it reminds me of a dinner at a high-end restaurant. This is how classy this salad is with fresh raspberries, crumbles of soft goat cheese and candied pecans. I always have a box or two of organic fresh spinach and a box of organic mixed baby greens on hand. I add spinach to smoothies, salads, frittatas, meats, soups etc. It’s so good for you especially raw.
