Superfood Green Smoothie

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…

Quaker Protein Bars

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…

Healthy Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Remember I told you last week our butter-cream friends came over and I made them this spinach and feta dip?! So, they brought over a berry crumble. They always make me eat desserts, otherwise we might not be friends. It was good! Who doesn’t like a berry crumble or a crisp made with fresh berries in season?! I had to recreate my guilt-free version of it. A little bit of thinking and digging, here is what I came up with.

Protein Coconut Macaroons

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Famous coconut macaroons with protein powder and chia seeds to boost the protein nutritional value. Your body will thank you for these because these healthy cookies have no sugar added, no flour, are gluten free and vegetarian. I have no idea where this idea came from, but I had this idea and I was obsessed. I had to make these cookies! A bit crunchy on the outside, absolutely moist and soft inside.

Coconut Chia Gel

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. 

Avocado Fruit Salad

Yes, my super Avocado Fruit Salad and 100 pictures of it. My hands literally got glued to the camera as soon as I saw this… and there was no one to stop me. I took 80 shots of this delicious heaven food…

Coconut Mango Chia Pudding

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…

Papaya Chia Pudding

No added sugar, vegan, gluten free and high in protein simple & quick papaya chia pudding recipe with chia seeds. Prep time = 2 minutes, cooking time = 0 mins. Gotta love that! Chia seed is the new superfood that is sold in any grocery store and is recommended by many athletes and other health authorities. There is also a belief chia seeds help in weight loss but studies remain inconclusive. According to the USDA, a 1 oz serving of chia seeds contains 9 g of fat, 11 g of fiber and 4…
