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.
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.
Yes, you heard it right. Oil free, just 4 ingredients and ready in seconds. Healthy and easy salad dressing made with ingredients you probably have on hand right now. Also gluten free, vegetarian and vegan. Super raw food! And the calorie count is ridiculous…36! For the whole small jar. I don’t know about you but I always have fresh garlic, a jar of sliced hot banana peppers (for sandwiches), a bunch of parsley (one of my staple herbs) and …water on hand. You should have water for sure.:)
Crunchy fresh green beans made with roasted garlic and coated in melted parmesan cheese. These are perfect any time of the year and especially for the BBQ season. Vegetarian and gluten free. It’s spring in Vancouver and these beans scream spring and healthy to me. I love french green beans from Costco. They are thin and already trimmed. But any kind of green beans will work.
This was supposed to be cheesy and bubbly. And quick, easy & low fat vegetarian recipe. And that’s exactly how it turned out. French style green beans and cauliflower covered in cheese sauce made with garlic and paprika. Healthy vegetarian recipe that kids will love. Moms will love it too: 199 calories & 5 Weight Watchers points+! Very cheesy… And bubbly…
And yes, it comes with healthy cream cheese frosting on top! Healthy, skinny and kid friendly too! No 2 cups of sugar, no oil, no white flour, no egg yolks. Just black beans, pumpkin puree, Greek yogurt and egg whites among the ingredients in this delicious & moist pumpkin cake.
Ah, it’s been wonderful! Where do I begin?! My mom has been visiting so I really was able to do some wonderful things that I usually am not able to do. Like go for a run by myself, go tanning and visit Seattle! The whole weekend, by ourselves! No strollers, sippy cups and diapers in my suitcase this time. And no worries cause when my mom is taking care of my house and kids, it’s all taken care of! She is the best! THANK YOU, MOM!!!
In a single month of February I have made chia pudding at least 8 times. I think I’m done for now. My family is begging me to stop.:) First, I test the recipe. If it’s good I remake it, take pictures and post it here. Sometimes I test the recipes 3 times. It’s rare but it happens. I loved this particular coconut mango chia pudding from the very first try! It’s my favourite out of all chia pudding recipes I made last month.
The Greek classic without the guilt and still full of flavour. Healthy spinach and feta pie with no crust. High in protein, calcium & vitamin C. Only 110 calories and 3 WW points +. Essentially, it is unwrapped spanakopita baked as a pie. Just the filling, no pastry. Made with fresh herbs, light feta cheese and frozen spinach, this pie is a great healthy alternative to green cupcakes this St. Patrick’s Day.
