I’m not a complicated breakfast person and if neither are you, then you will love this healthy and easy Bird’s Nest Eggs breakfast recipe! Organic egg and extra egg whites panfried with spinach, onion and bell pepper in a tomato paste sauce. Previously, I was scared of the eggs because of the fat and cholesterol content. Last week I was reading a Clean Eating magazine issue and came across famous Tosca Reno bragging how she eats eggs every day?! Apparently, egg yolk contains 90% of egg’s calcium and…

Easy and healthy grilled chicken recipe, just in time for grilling season and hot weather. Meaty chicken thighs marinated in sweet zesty marinade of coconut milk, lime juice and fresh cilantro. Jalapeno pepper adds a tiny spicy kick to the chicken that is still kid friendly. Feel free to add more jalapenos for a spicier version. This coconut cilantro chicken recipe is so easy, you can marinate the chicken the day before and grill it on a weeknight after work.

Last month I went on a vacation to all inclusive resort in Mexico for a week. I worked out every day, ate healthy, soaked up lots of sun and came home skinny and happy. Not only didn’t I gain any weight, I also got a flatter stomach. How? By eating healthy foods and treats in moderation, by working out on a regular basis. I just want to share with you what worked for me and show what you can eat on a vacation without coming home and bringing…

“Hello. I’m coffee. Nice to meet you. I’m Olena’s newest addiction.” Well, not that new but since the baby #2 sleepless nights “yeeees” and “yeeees” and “yeeees”. Luckily those nights are gone and are NEVER coming back. Until those nights I never touched coffee, needless to say I would never create an iced coffee recipe (needless to mention a healthy frappuccino recipe). Nowadays, I would be willing to brew fresh ground coffee every morning just to make my house smell like Starbucks or my Italian neighbours’ house. On a hot…

Raspberry chia pudding with juicy raspberries, superfood chia seeds and some almond milk.  The morning after I made this chia pudding, I got a text from Alex. And Alex texts me every morning after leaving to work. Usually it’s “Morning, babe. How are you?”. But that morning it was a different text…

Baby spinach, leafy kale, tiny chia seeds…All those are super foods and make this green stuff  > THE STUFF! Apple, cucumber and lemon are there for an extra health benefit but most importantly to make this smoothie drinkable. It tastes totally bearable and even delicious! Apple adds sweetness without adding too much sugar and cucumber adds coolness. You know that summery refreshing cool feeling mint and cucumber have?! That’s the one! So, it’s delicious! MIL/sausage lover/junk food enthusiast’s verdict was “Mmmmmmm…mmmmmmm…mmmm”. Yes, I’m a good DIL. I feed…

I have no idea why I have been putting off baking these yellow bundles of joy bursting with fresh strawberries?! Made with only whole wheat flour, protein powder and no added sugar, you get a strawberry flavour with every muffin’s bite. I know why. If you are a baker you know how hard it is to get goods made with only whole wheat flour to rise. And secondly, whey protein could make muffins dry and rubbery. OK, you know how Lululemon bags say “Face one fear a day”?!…

Ever since I posted my first protein bar recipe (peanut butter oatmeal protein bars) I wanted to make another one but higher in protein, lower in sugar and fat. And it’s not easy because nut bars rely on nut butter and sticky sugary liquids like agave and honey to hold them together. I tried to cut down the nut butter and agave to almost nothing and replace with almond milk. I also tried to use chia gel as a glue. Finally, after much testing, I came up with a copycat…
