Summer is arriving in Cape Town (yeahyeahyeaaah!) and I couldn’t be happier. I am done with rainy, grey days and cold weather. Take away my pale, untanned skin and cold hands! Give me all of the sun, clear blue skies, beaches and ice cream! I pulled this recipe together in anticipation of the soon-to-be sunny, hotter weather. It’s a super easy recipe, only takes 5 minutes to make and BEST of all, it’s on the healthy side. Made with beautiful tarte berries and a little bit of açaí (ahh-sah-ee) powder for a rich, dark chocolatey flavour. Ingredients: 250g frozen mixed berries 1-2 frozen bananas (1 if you want less carbs, 2 if you want to bulk up the recipe.) 60ml almond milk, unsweetened 2T açaí berry powder Method: Place the frozen mixed berries, banana, almond milk and açaí powder in a food processor and blend on high until a thick liquid mixture has formed. If the berries and banana aren’t easily blending, add in a little more almond milk…

Healthy 5-Minute Breakfast

Originally posted on Crafty Coin I am not a morning person. If I don’t have my 8 hours of sleep, good luck trying to get me out of bed. But as much as I like my ZzZzs, I don’t always get as many as I like. Those are the days where I especially need an easy and quick breakfast. If I haven’t made my Overnight Oats the night before, then I turn to my other trusty favorite: Greek yogurt with berries and two hard-boiled eggs. Now, there is a tiny bit of prep that goes into this meal. Read more…

Udi’s Gluten Free Lasagna with Meat Sauce

Originally Posted on Gluten Free Carolina Girl Last week I shared a review of Udi’s Gluten Free Mac and Cheese, and today I want to review Udi’s Gluten Free Lasagna with Meat Sauce. Similar to the mac and cheese, you use the microwave or oven for this meal, and I chose the oven. In general, I think frozen meals turn out better when you don’t just slide them in the microwave even though the waiting can be hard when you’re hungry. Read more…

My favorite healthy meals when I’m out and about!

So let’s face it, we all like to go out and treat ourselves with a huge piece of cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory every now and then as a cheat meal, but what if it’s not your cheat day & you have to go out for a birthday, celebration, work party, etc? Below I’m going to list my favorite HEALTHY meals and options when I’m out to eat at some of my favorite restaurants! Cheesecake Factory: So God bless Cheesecake Factory for making the Skinnylicious menu because it takes the guess work right out of trying to find something healthy to eat – although the salt content is pretty high in some of these items (ya gotta make it taste good, right?) you can always ask to have you item cooked with minimal salt! So here’s a few of my favs! + Greek Salad as a starter + Skinnylicious Caesar salad (TO DIE FOR!) + Chicken lettuce wrap tacos (Mexican style w/ no crema) + Skinnylicious grilled salmon w/ asparagus + Skinny…

This is a 25 Before 25 post. Check out the rest of my list here. Upon accepting the 25 Before 25 challenge, I wanted to ensure that I created a list of goals and tasks that would enhance or improve my life. I began looking at areas in my life where I could identify shortcomings and almost immediately, the word ‘kitchen’ came to mind. I love food. I really, really love food. However, I am a terrible cook. The irony of this situation is that I was employed in the kitchen at Big in Japan in Montréal for over two months. I actually prepared food for the masses in a busy St. Laurent restaurant, five days a week and yet, I am still terrified of the kitchen. Oi. With this 25 Before 25 challenge, I’m hoping to curtail my fear of slicing, dicing, baking and broiling. While I plan on taking a ploddingly simple approach to my cooking dilemma, I also plan on completing my goal of 12 new recipes before my birthday in August. In line with my “ploddingly simple”…
