What I Eat…

That’s right! Time for an oldie but a goodie here on the blog: a what I eat blog post. I haven’t done one of these in YEARS! A few years ago I had some stomach issues and I found that what I ate had a lot to do with how I was feeling and so…

5 Homemade Lunch Ideas

I love to cook, but over the years my food blog posts were severely diminished as I felt I wasn’t trying out enough new recipes and just didn’t have much interesting to show. However, I have a couple of standard homemade lunches that I love to take with me to work and I sometimes post…

Smoothie combinations

This time of year, I love a good smoothie. I always try to make mine filling so they can substitute entire meals. Over the years, I’ve tried many different recipes and combinations and I have come to find a couple that I like the most. Smoothie combinations

Recipe: Healthier Hamburgers

I love my comfort food and from time to time I like to cook up a feast in the form of hamburgers. But where I would usually make that with a bun and loads of different toppings, I figured that you could easily change things up. Inspired by a Blogilates recipe, I decided to replace…

Recipe: Banana-coconut cake (wheat & sugar free)

A healthy cake? When I spotted this recipe, I knew I had to try it. I’ve been meaning to do some more baking again, but I just haven’t had the time to find new recipes to try. Until I spotted this that is. I found it on a random health website, which linked to this…

Raspberry ripple cheesecake

Recipe time! For a fun music filled night with friends last weekend, I decided to do some baking again. I love to bake, but don’t get to do it enough. Time is an issue, but since I usually have to eat everything by myself, it isn’t a great idea as well. So that’s why my…

Recipe: Sticky chicken & curly sweet potato fries

Long time no recipe! And today’s recipe is a different type from what I usually post. I don’t know about you, but sometimes, I just need comfort food, especially if it’s cold outside. One of my favorite comfort foods that is certainly NOT good for you but still entirely delicious (though it looks gross until…

Recipe: Roasted chickpea salad

I’ve been totally into my quinoa salads, but one key ingredient in them is a bunch of roasted chickpeas. So I figured that my next variation on the quinoa theme shouldn’t focus on the quinoa, but on the chickpeas. This is a salad that has loads of leafy greens and some great flavors packed into…

Recipe: Pumpkin-pepper-lentil soup

If there is one recipe that screams fall, it’s a pumpkin soup. Because I already posted my recipe for a straight up pumpkin soup, I decided to change it up this time. Plus it has been a while since I last posted that recipe. So today I’m bringing you a pumpkin soup with a bit…

Recipe: Mozzarella salad

Salads are such quick and easy meals to make and especially when temperatures rise, it is the best convenience food. This week we’re having quite the Indian summer, and so what better moment to share one of my favorites? Think of it as an amped up salad caprese: there’s still the mozzarella, basil and tomato…
