Mini eggs are one of my favourite Easter treats and I also love cookies (see examples here and here). I combined my two favourites and am excited to share my mini egg cookies with you. Easter looks different this year being in quarantine to help stop the spread of COVID-19, but we’re making the best of it. How are all of you doing?
Green detox smoothie
Many of us overindulged over the holiday season and perhaps skipped some of our workouts. Three months after Christmas and perhaps you’re still trying to implement healthy habits to shed the weight you gained. I’ve been drinking this green detox smoothie on repeat since January. It tastes like a pina colada and I hope you love it as much as I do! Continue reading “Green detox smoothie”
Thai quinoa salad
For a delicious meatless Monday option, try my easy and simple Thai quinoa salad that is vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and soy free (the same as these donuts, which were my most popular recipe of 2017).
I like to make this salad and then eat it for lunch all week because I don’t mind eating the same healthy thing for days on end (goes well with my natural inclination towards kitchen laziness and hatred of dishes). Continue reading “Thai quinoa salad”
Hearty chicken and rice soup
It’s so easy to heat up soup from a can, especially if you or someone in your household is under the weather. However, there is nothing like homemade hearty chicken and rice soup (plus there’s a lot less sodium). If you make a big batch and freeze it in portions (meal prep 101), then it’s basically the same thing as reaching for a can. In my recipe down below, I give you my secret to great tasting soup that won’t disappoint! Continue reading “Hearty chicken and rice soup”
Homemade lip balm
Early in my wellness journey, I started making my own personal care and cleaning products. Once I learned about all the toxins in products we slather all over our skin and use to “clean” our homes, I couldn’t continue using them. I’m a chapstick addict, so homemade lip balm was high on my list of priorities. Continue reading “Homemade lip balm”
Healthy breakfast quiche
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I shared why in my gluten free coconut flour banana pancake recipe – it stems from nostalgic memories with my dad, who I spent a lot of time with in the kitchen baking up a storm and creating new recipes. We’ve been consistently meal planning this week and healthy breakfast quiche has been getting us from early morning to lunch with ease. Continue reading “Healthy breakfast quiche”
Healthy Taco Tuesday recipe
Tacos are one of the world’s greatest inventions, so imagine you had a healthy Taco Tuesday recipe that allowed you to partake guilt free! On my journey to become healthier and fitter (check out the recipes from my kitchen and workouts from my living room), creating healthy alternatives for my old favourites was one of the keys to my success. I couldn’t live without donuts, cookies (and more cookies), or pizza and I don’t have to!
Healthy slow cooker cabbage rolls
Cabbage rolls are a new favurite in my household because I love that you have a complete meal all wrapped up in leafy green goodness. My husband is Ukrainian and it’s a bit sacrilege that I’ve only recently learned to make healthy slow cooker cabbage rolls that you can set and forget (my favorite way to cook)! Better late than never, right?
Before you check out the recipe, head over to Instagram to see what I have in store for you next week! I’ve been slammed with conference prep the last two weeks, but I’ll be back in business next week with brand new content. Continue reading “Healthy slow cooker cabbage rolls”
Creative ways to use coconut oil
Do you know all the creative ways to use coconut oil? It’s very trendy and I promise that I used it religiously before it was cool. If you haven’t already gone crazy for coconuts, you should reconsider! However, not all things are created equal, so ensure that you get a high quality coconut oil that you can consume (in limited quantities) and slather on your skin worry free.
Homemade anti-aging eye cream
I’m so excited to share my homemade anti-aging eye cream recipe with you today! My regular readers know I’m very mindful about what I eat and the personal care and cleaning products I use. The skin absorbs 60% of what we apply to it, so it’s critical to check ingredient labels to ensure you aren’t willingly putting toxins on your skin in the name of beauty.
