Hi and welcome to ifoodreal.com!

My name is Olena and this is my website where I share healthy family recipes with an Eastern European flare.

What I Think

I don’t believe in diets, neither I think we were born to eat. This website reflects my healthy relationship with food – I like simple whole foods meals with a bit of lean protein, heavy on veggies and a sprinkle of complex carbs. I’m all about balance, health and living your dream!

What You Will Find Here

Easy healthy recipes with simple ingredients and no tricky techniques – I have never been to Whole Foods or have baked macarons. I post mostly Dinner Recipes because “What’s for Dinner?” is never going away. I do quite like my Instant Pot, and you will get one eventually anyways.

A Little More About Me

Originally from Ukraine, I’m now blessed to call beautiful Vancouver, Canada my home where I live with my husband and 2 boys. I started this blog in 2012 when I ended up at home with 2 small kids, unemployed and a wee bit chubby.
