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.
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!

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…

Summer is coming and it means fresh berries, cool drinks and light desserts. I’ve had a trifle recipe on my mind for quite a while now. Just need the berry season to arrive. I also was looking for a basic vanilla cake recipe to use instead of traditional sponge cake. I spent many evenings in my bed thinking how to make it. And thought why not to take my protein chocolate cake and make it a vanilla one with some adjustments.
I love one meal salads like shrimp orzo salad, Greek yogurt pasta salad, chicken quinoa kale salad, and this Thai Kale Chicken Salad is one of them. Traditional Thai flavours meet superfood – kale.

My proof for stir fries is in numerous unique and healthy stir fry recipes I have made over the years: cabbage and carrots stir fry, buckwheat stir fry, frozen vegetables stir fry, broccoli mushroom stir fry, salmon stir fry and healthy beef stir fry. Healthy soba noodle stir fry is a no brainer. Just combine some protein, vegetables and healthy noodles, and you are good to go. Soba noodles are quick to cook, usually made of a whole grain like buckwheat, which means they provide more fiber than wheat or rice…
