I’m keeping things really chill this busy time of the year. Simple recipes like this 2 ingredients slow cooker Thai chicken thighs, slow cooker whole chicken and crockpot butter chicken help me get things done and family fed not with cookies. On Monday morning I literally was shopping Cyber Monday deals while browning chicken. That is one ingredient. Another one I already had in a fridge – Thai sweet chili sauce. It just never fails me. Just like my slow cooker. The only sweet deal I scooped up on a…

Friday night me and Alex went out on “a date” which involved shopping at Value Village. I know! I find it very good for kids brand name clothing. I have bought wonderful things there for dirt cheap. I honestly got tired of spending hundreds of $s on kids clothing when they grow so fast. So, I will take and buy all good hand me downs. More money for my Lululemon. Also, before we move on, I have to be honest and say the past week has been so…

I’m gonna make you drool in an appropriate way. Like drooling mentally because nobody really wants to see you or me drooling. Trust me on this one. Let’s keep to emojis and hashtags. Once again, prepare to be amazed with this 7 ingredient clean eating roasted red pepper lasagna with mushrooms made in a slow cooker. And all ingredients come from a jar, a can or a package. And still clean. If maybe, maybe, just slightly maybe, one of the ingredients is 98% clean promise you will bite…

While the great America is pulling on their stretchy pants, here in Canada we are long past that stage. It is Christmas craziness which I can’t seem to get a hang of just yet. All I keep hearing is Cabo’s waves and dreaming of long walks on the never ending beach. Smashing avocados, chopping cilantro and squeezing lime for the Mexican turkey meatballs dinner last night did not help the situation. I just can’t seem to get excited about making letters to Santa look untouched, spending hundreds of $s on Amazon…

I feel like the US female clean eating population went into post-election and pre-Thanksgiving coma. Where is everybody, America? Are my Canadian girls buying parkas? Are you in the gym getting some natural high? Are you shopping for a stretchy pants? Are you recovering after the weekend? What did you eat SOOOO GOOD or BAD this weekend that we should all know about? Let’s talk! I need a good laugh after my 5 year old’s end of the world tantrum this morning. Seriously, when are these tantrums gonna end? He is…

Clean Green Bean Casserole #1 I will be very honest with you about the green bean casserole – I don’t love it. More than that I am not a huge fan of many fall vegetables and dishes. I’m just not and neither are my kids. I will cook and eat them but I much prefer fresh and juicy produce centered recipes. However, as kids are growing I want them to grow up with traditions. I want them to feel Canadian and included. Yes, I want that! I’m all…

Cauliflower Shepherd’s Pie is essentially a dog pile (a new word I learnt during Kyle’s last hockey game) of veggies. And just to forewarn you – I’m not a potato hater but rather lover (see my last weekend eats). How can I be Ukrainian and hate potatoes when we ate them every day?! Potatoes are not bad for you. I just wanted to have fun with cauliflower. And honestly I thought I had a genius new recipe on hands which proved to be a nonsense once I did my…

Friday Night This weekend started with shopping at Costco on Friday afternoon. $500 poof. Gone. Bye bye. For dinner was mini won tons in a chicken stock with kale and green onions. When we got home I cooked a huge pot of chicken stock with leftover chicken bones from making butter chicken spaghetti squash boats. This was dinner. Dinner made or planned by Alex miracle didn’t happen this week or weekend at all. I’m not sure I am even mad at this point anymore.

Who am I to talk about traditional Indian dishes but oh, I will go there. Prepare to be amazed. If my Ukrainian grandma could make a chicken curry with sour cream, onions and curry powder back in the 90s, why can’t I make some butter chicken and spaghetti squash pretending squash is pasta?! Haha, let’s be clear spaghetti squash doesn’t replace spaghetti but tastes very good. By the way, grandma’s curry was DELISH! Not original but a tasty healthy meal really has no rules to it. Too many…

Quote of the Day: If Mr.Trump can be a president, why can’t you be healthy!? No, seriously?! Think about it. Your health is totally up to you. I am starting new series of links I come across on Internet that I think would be useful for your health. I don’t read a ton because I simply don’t have time, so if I read something it means it is really useful. Stuff worth 20 minutes of my time. No, seriously. Think of what Trump has achieved (politics aside) and Trump…
