Follow my blog with Bloglovin Famous coconut macaroons with protein powder and chia seeds to boost the protein nutritional value. Your body will thank you for these because these healthy cookies have no sugar added, no flour, are gluten free and vegetarian. I have no idea where this idea came from, but I had this idea and I was obsessed. I had to make these cookies! A bit crunchy on the outside, absolutely moist and soft inside.

Many of you love to cook and would like to start your own food blog. In 2014, it’s quite simple. I often get asked “What’s the difference between a free blog and self-hosted?”, “What hosting do you recommend?” and “Can I place ads on my blog?” etc. I say, start self-hosted blog from the beginning, that’s what I did. You will have your own domain name (without wordpress.com at the end), can make it as pretty as you wish and be able to monetize your blog (if you…

Hey, guys. I decided to put together “The Tools of the Trade” list I use to run iFOODreal. Why? Just in case you are wondering what it takes to create a blog like this one. It’s very simple and an initial investment is around $70. Me and Alex always do a thorough research on any product we use at iFOODreal. Therefore, the blogging resources below have been thoroughly checked and approved by a diligent web designer a.k.a programmer a.k.a my husband a.k.a Alex. I update this page regularly as…

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Chia gel is basically chia seeds soaked in any liquid: water, juice or milk. This Coconut Chia Gel is great for making any kind of coconut flavoured desserts like cupcakes, macaroons, cookies and even cakes. I made this gel specifically for the Protein Chia Macaroons. They turned out just right: crispy outside and soft inside.

You know how plain rice can get boring, right?! This recipe is a quick alternative to add a variety to your rice side dishes menu. Especially on weeknights, when you are mostly short on time. Just good old brown rice with frozen peas and toasted pine nuts. No turning on the oven, sautéing garlic/onions or defrosting the peas. Just toasting the pine nuts, but that part is easy. I promise! This rice dish is also vegan, vegetarian and gluten free.

Creamy Greek yogurt guacamole made with avocados, Greek yogurt, cilantro and jalapeno peppers. I tried similar recipe at my friend’s Christi house and loved it right away. Greek yogurt adds an amazing creaminess and extra protein to this traditional Mexican dish. Who would think to add Greek yogurt to guacamole?! I never would have.

I moved, I moved, I moved…Finally! I found fast, cheap and reliable web hosting for WordPress and moved iFOODreal.com. And the winner is…InMotion hosting! So far my blog is flying and is not going up and down. For the last couple of months it was a nightmare to run this blog on FatCow web hosting. The website would be down for a period of anywhere between 5-40 minutes. Can you imagine?! I would go on my website and it’s dead. And the same thing would happen to other…

I often get asked what do I do for workouts, where I work out and what equipment do I use. I thought I would clear the air.:) There is a common misconception that I lost weight running and I run a lot. I didn’t and I don’t. I have a dedicated workout space at home, own basic equipment & follow a secret routine.:) Joking, not secret here… I run occasionally on nice sunny days when I feel like a breath of fresh air. I usually do a 5-7…

Salsa Guacamole Dip is one of the easiest and healthiest appetizers. Fresh tomatoes, diced red onion, freshly chopped cilantro… Adding more veggies will help to lower the fat from avocados, although this kind of fat is good for you! Only 256 calories and 7 WW points+ per 3/4 cup serving.
