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.

Egg Whites and Broccoli Cauliflower Breakfast Recipe

Love this healthy breakfast recipe! I usually do not make stovetop breakfast on school days as I don’t know why I’m always running late and rushing to get 2 kids ready. Oh, wait a minute, probably because I’m too busy cooking, writing, processing pictures and videos late at night. Right! But when I do, this Egg Whites and Broccoli Cauliflower recipe is at the top of my list. As always high in protein, low in fat and carbs, and if you add a bit of salsa it makes…

10 Best High Protein Fridge Foods

Extra lean ground turkey – I buy 4 pack at Costco, usually organic if available. Greek yogurt – plain, no flavour, 0%. So far the only organic one I found is Oikos. Usually I buy Kirkland brand at Costco, Liberte or Chobani. I had no luck with Trader Joe’s or I’m there at the wrong time. Cottage cheese – low fat or non-fat, organic. My favourite one is from Trader Joe’s. It’s very cheap and tasty.

Enjoy this shake instead of a dessert on a Saturday night, as a couch snack while watching your favorite reality show or even as a meal replacement. Guilt-free and under your daily calorie intake. Guaranteed! If you are like me and like to entertain then weekend is the time when my willpower is being tested. If cheesecake, apple pie or cannoli is on the menu and you are trying to lose the last 10, 20 or 50 lbs, simply excuse yourself for 2 minutes and whip up this…

Magic Bullet Green Smoothie

This recipe has been inspired by the recent popularity of juicing and by my neighbours. In an attempt to lose my belly fat I talked to my neighbour who trains NHL players and his wife who looks amazing. Among couple suggestions he gave me was juicing particularly vegetable juicing. Now, anybody who knows me knows I’m against juices particularly fruit ones. Homemade are a little bit better than store-bought ones but not by much. You are way better off eating the whole fruit or vegetable full of fiber and micro…
