Watermelon Protein Smoothie

This refreshing smoothie is made with superfoods & APF water filtered ice courtesy of GE Appliances Canada. It is finally HOT here on the West Coast so last week we went to see a puppet show in the park. The entire time I had 6 eyes staring at me “Where are we?!”. As soon as boys polished off dinner and Alex started making fun of foxy loxy I knew it was time to go home. I am not sure I should bring up a music on the wharf even… Seriously, what is up with men,…

Lime Basil Grilled Zucchini

I love to grill zucchini with whatever I have on hand => balsamic grilled vegetables. Usually we do garlic, oil, salt and pepper. I am sure you completely understand why. But I have done it so many times and plus I have this wonderful job “ifoodreal” that forces me to barely ever eat the same food twice. Joking, I re-cook my own recipes. So, I was thinking curried grilled zucchini which could be wonderful or not. I have been spending many nights on our patio inhaling smells from next…

Sweet Potato Noodle Salad with Lime & Peanuts

On Monday I was supposed to make strawberry honey almond cake that I tested for Easter and posted on Instagram. It was Alex’s birthday. We are generally not the adults who love to celebrate our birthdays in a traditional way. We had an active weekend  exploring the beaches and hiking in Larrabee park. That is how we like to celebrate – do something new, fun (mostly outdoors), followed by a nice restaurant meal. I wish this didn’t cost a million. I checked on zillow. I have to remember to come…

Cilantro Avocado Dressing

So, reality of my kitchen and closet is that it is August and I feel very uncomfortable wearing jeans. I will not be going on a scale, jeans are the best reality check, aren’t they?! Why can’t girls eat chocolate, drink wine and stay skinny?! Life isn’t fair.:) 5 lbs are easy to fix though, so I say to myself. I absolutely despise meal planning, I dread it. I love to create on a whim. I am so not a grocery list print outs clipped on a board…

Lime Ginger Salmon

Sockeye salmon fillets marinated with lime zest + juice and freshly grated ginger for 10 minutes, and then quickly broiled. Serve this lime ginger salmon with Cilantro Coconut Brown Rice and you have a refreshing, tasty and healthy dinner in under 30 minutes. You can use any firm wild fish affordable in your area. I can think of halibut, cod, snapper, rockfish. Please buy wild caught only. I explain the problem with farmed fish in detail in this Thai Salmon recipe (plus another salmon recipe idea for you).

Healthy Key Lime Pie Bars

A few weeks ago we started to get “boiled” here in Vancouver and I think I “spit out” about 5 no bake desserts during that time. Global warming at its finest because it is only May. I made ice cream a gazillion times, popsicles (many versions to come out soon), no bake black bean brownies (want that one soon?) and these Healthy Key Lime Pie Bars.
