Oh boy, this one is not easy. I mean not easy for me to write this post, but good news is, it’s quite easy to choose a good domain name. Once you have decided you want to start a blog, it is time to choose a domain name. Domain name tells readers what your blog is all about. Let’s take my blog’s domain name, iFOODreal.com, as an example. The name with 3 www’s in front of it is a domain name. And a cute green apple is called favicon. Just another…

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…

Pan fried 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. It’s spring in Vancouver and these garlic Parmesan green beans scream spring and healthy to me. I love french green beans from Costco – they are thin and already trimmed, perfect for making 4 ingredient green beans and chicken on a busy weeknight. But any kind of green beans will work, like scarlet runner I used in creamy green beans recipe.

These cheesy green beans were supposed to be cheesy and bubbly. And quick, easy & low fat vegetarian recipe. And that’s exactly how they 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 and moist black bean chocolate 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: vanilla chia pudding, raspberry chia pudding and papaya chia pudding. 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…

The Greek classic without the guilt and still full of flavour – crustless spinach feta quiche. 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.

One day I was browsing Pinterest and saw a great idea for a quick snack – banana pieces dipped in chocolate. I got intrigued and knew I had to make it, but I had an idea. One time I saw homemade truffles recipe and thought why not to combine these two and add some protein powder. Yes, I love unflavoured protein powder with no added sugar or artificial flavours. So far, this is my favourite one.

My mom is visiting here for 10 days, so I’m taking advantage of the situation as much as I can.:) On Monday morning I walked my oldest son to school without my 2 year old in tow. It was very unusual and different for me. As soon as we left the house this view opened up. The heat coming from houses on a sunny crispy morning with the mountains on the background – gorgeous! I couldn’t get enough of it but it was just a beginning!
