Eggplant Fritters

Meaty juicy eggplant fritters dipped in a peppery egg wash and fried with no oil. Serve as a side dish for meat and poultry, on a whole wheat bun to make a veggie burger (use 2 patties), inside a whole wheat pita as a sandwich or on its own as a vegetarian cutlet/savoury pancake. These no fuss eggplant fritters are versatile, quick and dirt cheap. No grinder, food processor or pre-baking is required either.

Japanese Quinoa Salad Recipe

  Quick gluten free salad with edamame, cucumbers, scallions and Ginger Soy & Sesame dressing. I love Japanese food. In fact, that’s the only food we eat when we go out. Because it is hard to prepare good quality sushi and sashimi at home, I’m willing to spend money on it. So, it was nice to make this quinoa salad at home and enjoy my favourite Japanese flavours of the Ginger Soy & Sesame dressing combined with edamame beans, eggs, carrots, cucumbers, scallions and sesame seeds.

Quinoa Egg Muffins with Broccoli

LIfe is crazy! My house is loud, gets messy (I’m a clean freak and paying for it) and there are always bazillion things on the schedule. By Thursday, I’m usually ready for a hot tub and wine but this week I did something different. I got back to working out regularly,…

Crustless Zucchini Enchilada Quiche

I got it all figured out for you, guys, when it comes to corn tortillas in this light & summery crustless zucchini quiche. Ready?! Nutritional facts of corn tortillas are similar to whole wheat tortillas. Shocking? I know! I’ve been missing out on these guys for the last 13 years. According to 3 fat chicks on a diet in a comparison based on calories, fat and ingredients list of whole wheat tortilla vs. corn, corn wins. Even a shorter list of ingredients makes sense, real food = corn and…

Spinach Bird’s Nest Eggs Breakfast

I’m not a complicated breakfast person and if neither are you, then you will love this healthy and easy Spinach Bird’s Nest Eggs breakfast recipe! Organic egg and extra egg whites panfried with spinach, onion and bell pepper in a tomato paste sauce. Previously, I was scared of the eggs because of the fat and cholesterol content. Last week I was reading a Clean Eating magazine issue and came across famous Tosca Reno bragging how she eats eggs every day?!

Radish, Cucumber & Egg Salad

Although this Radish, Cucumber & Egg Salad screams summer I decided to make it in the middle of January. I went to my local farmer’s market a couple of days ago and saw these cute little bunches of fresh and crisp radish at only 68c per bunch. I immediately grabbed 4. Should have taken a photo with my iPhone.
