Lemon Dill Quinoa Salad

Another quinoa recipe. Yes, I’m on a quinoa roll this week. I already made High Protein Cilantro Lime Quinoa Salad, now this. Can’t help it. It just happens! I keep making quinoa. But wait, it gets even better! I made it actually 3 times. And that’s between Tuesday and Wednesday, so in 2 days. I was out of lime and avocado to make Cilantro Lime kind but already had cooked quinoa. I opened my fridge and it happened – Lemon Dill Quinoa Salad with sliced cherry tomatoes, crumbled…

Cilantro Lime Quinoa Salad

Quinoa salad with cherry tomatoes, fresh cucumber and ripe avocado…drizzled with freshly squeezed lime juice and sprinkled with freshly chopped cilantro. Screams summer in January to me! One of my favourite quinoa recipes of all times from the kitchen of iFOODreal. As always easy, quick & healthy.

Russian Chicken Rice Pilaf

Russian Chicken Rice Pilaf is called “plov”. It is basically chicken with rice, vegetables and spices. It is very popular in all former Soviet Union republics and is one of my favourite rice dishes. Traditionally it is made with lamb and comes from Uzbekistan. It has been adapted and made with chicken, pork and beef. I personally like it with chicken. It may seem hard to make but it’s not. Here are the rules for successful making of Russian Chicken Rice Pilaf:

One of my mom’s baked fish recipes. Adapted, lightened up, non-fried…What else?! Why? Hold your breath…Original recipe calls for 2 cups of mayo. OK, now breathe.:) I can’t believe we were eating it this way for years. I got away with it because I was a child, I guess. But honestly, everything was made with mayo. That’s the only dressing type of sauce we had back then. So everything was made with mayo. Basically, you could throw a bunch of any ingredients together and as long as you…

Some years ago I was visiting my friend Jennifer and she made this salad. OMG, yummy! So this is Jennifer’s Broccoli Salad recipe and not mine. All credit goes to her. The truth is I know broccoli is very good for you and you probably know that too, but I’ve never been a huge fan of it (my kids LOVE it though – weird but I’ll take it:)). Besides adding it to my “gross”, according to some Instagram user, Magic Bullet Green Smoothie and dipping into hummus (since ranch dressing…

Roasted Sesame & Peanut Butter Protein Bar Recipe

Homemade protein bar is my saver when I’m shopping, out with the kids or any time I know I won’t have access to a healthy food. As well is my Magic Bullet Green Smoothie ( I add a scoop of brown rice protein powder to it and some people think its gross:)). Protein bars cover healthy fats, carbs and protein and the smoothie has my greens. I’m good to go! That’s why I never eat junk when I’m out.

This easy appetizer recipe takes minimum preparation time, makes great finger food for parties and won’t hurt your waistline. Only 43 calories, 2 g of fat and 5 g of carbs per 1 tart. Soft goat cheese flavoured with fresh rosemary and garlic, topped with crunchy pecans and sweet chewy craisins, all wrapped in a freshly baked crispy phyllo pastry. You have to be careful with goat cheese, it’s fatty. To reduce the calories and increase protein I have added

This healthy Italian dish requires no precooking – “just throw all the ingredients in the crockpot and forget about it” type of recipe. Easy chicken thigh recipe! You can also stock up on the ingredients in advance and make this delicious healthy Chicken Marinara any time.

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…
