Chicken Quinoa Kale Salad with Grilled Peach

Three things are grilled in this Chicken Quinoa Kale Salad: peaches, avocado and chicken. Then mixed with nutty quinoa and crunchy kale, sprinkled with feta for a savoury kick and drizzle with out of this world healthy Peach Ginger Dressing. One of the best salads I ever tasted and made! And one of the best ideas I ever had for a salad dressing – sweet, zesty and spicy. We had the salad for dinner with a glass of chilled Moscato, sitting on a patio. For dessert: organic grilled…

Mediterranean Baked Zucchini Sticks

It’s zucchini season, yay! I have recently discovered my love for raw zucchini, especially in a form of chips. Slice them thinly and use instead of chips to dip into strawberry mango salsa, garlic hummus recipe or Greek salad layered dip. This way, you can enjoy more of an appetizer itself. Even with a healthy dip, calories add up quickly when digging into it with chips.

Greek Salad Layered Dip Recipe

I do not find clean eating hard, I love it! The hardest part about it is socializing. To be specific, a lack of healthy options available when I’m not at home. With summer here, I get a panic attack every time we are invited to a BBQ party. I have a vivid picture of the table in front of my eyes – simple carbs, simple carbs and more simple carbs. I’m not crazy or disrespectful, I just work too hard for my body and health is important to…

If you are like me and can’t handle eating huge turkey…

Farro Salad with Feta

I just got back from an eight day camping trip (I know!) where I made similar farro salad with feta sans edamame and a fancy dressing. Crunchy edamame beans, juicy sweet watermelon, creamy feta cheese, tangy zesty arugula drizzled with honey basil vinaigrette. Delicious! You could swap sweet green peas for edamame and avoid feta to make the salad vegan or if you don’t have it. Edamame are fresh soybeans full of protein, fiber and folate. You can find them sold shelled and frozen in a bag.

Eggplant Feta Dip

Full of vitamins, nutrients, fiber and antioxidants. Serve with multigrain or whole wheat pita chips and it will be gone! Only 51 calories and 1 WW point + per 1/4 cup serving.

Spinach and Feta Dip with Shrimp

Follow my blog with Bloglovin It’s time to dilute the flooding of protein fudge, protein coconut macaroons and chocolate protein cookies with something savoury. Do you have friends? I do. Not many but we do. Do you have those friends who think everything tastes better with butter and cream? I do. Love them! Great people! So a couple of weeks ago me and Alex invited the butter-cream friends over for dinner. Besides making coconut cilantro chicken, rosemary roasted potatoes and a crisp watermelon & feta salad, I made…
