Quinoa and Sweet Potato Salad

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Recipes

Eating healthy when on holiday abroad can sometimes be challenging. Normally I try to eat as healthy as possible but the meals on my recent holiday were a mix of both healthy and junk food due to poor planning. One of the healthy meals I had was a salad made with quinoa and roasted butternut squash. Since I liked it so much I tried to […]

Need an afternoon energy boost? Why not try matcha green tea?! Along with low caffeine concentration, matcha is packed with antioxidants, helps boost the metabolism for efficient fat burning, improves skin, increases energy levels and endurance, detoxifies the body, and is also a good source of vitamin C, selenium, zinc, and magnesium. The first time I tried matcha was in a ready-made matcha coconut milk […]

Guilt-Free Onion Pakoras

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Recipes

Pakoras are my all time favorite Indian snack food!!! The soft, fluffy texture, and slightly spicy flavor can be enjoyed any time; with tea, lunch or dinner. The downside is that THEY ARE FRIED! 🙁 Often in unhealthy refined oils. But guess what? There is another way! These pakoras are adapted from my original fried recipe; tweaked slightly to avoid the frying and yet retaining the […]

Clean Out Your Fridge!

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Uncategorized

A few days ago I was cleaning out my fridge, and I realized that my fridge door is so much emptier now compared to what it looked like about 3 years ago. My family never had loads of sauces and dips, but we did have some of the staples such as mayonnaise, ketchup, a hot sauce, salsa, and maybe a favorite salad dressing. What’s in your fridge? Do you have […]

How do you feel when you think of a salad? Crunchy? Yummy? Colorful? Vibrant? Or cold? Boring? Bland? Diet food? Chances are you thought of the latter. I feel the same especially when I go to a restaurant or an event where the salad is just cucumbers, tomatoes, and lettuce. Thats it?! That’s your salad?!! Making good salad is super easy. Really! It is! Here are […]

Are avocados fattening?

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Uncategorized

“But avocados are fattening! They are not good for you!!” I often hear this from people who are trying to follow their doctors recommendations, whether it’s to reduce their cholesterol or keep their blood sugar/diabetes in check.   Well yes, it’s true that avocados are high in fat. A one ounce serving (30g) of avocado roughly contains 4.5 g of fat. That’s often not even half […]

Chocolate Hearts

I Love dark chocolate!!! I know it’s hard for some people to get used to it, but now every time I try one of those milk chocolates, I feel dissatisfied. These homemade chocolate hearts are delicious and free of refined sugars and are loaded with benefits of raw cacao and goji berries. Raw cacao is made by cold pressing cacao beans, so it’s less processed than […]

“Oh, I’ll start eating healthy from next week.” “I’ll start my morning walks from Monday.” “Oh there’s so much going in my life right now; let things calm down a bit and I’ll take care of myself starting next month.” New Year’s is right around the corner, and I’m sure you must be thinking of setting your resolutions. It could be to start exercising, eat […]

Bean Burgers

I am always looking to add variety and yumm-iness to my kids lunch box and since we try to practice Meatless Mondays most of the time, this bean burger recipe is my lifesaver. It’s easy to make and also freezes well, so I have got my Mondays sorted out. Ingredients: 2 14oz cans of beans (black beans or kidney beans) 2 large carrots, grated 1/2 […]
