SUCCESS! I was really, really good for a healthy muffin! Oh, I forgot the disclaimer: “healthy doesn’t always mean low calories”, there, that’s done. After all, there is peanut butter, coco oil, dates, whole flour; it is a hearty muffin, but the ingredients, are good for you little inside! I passed the kids AND the coworkers (who have access to fresh amazing pastries from our 4 stars kitchen) test! HOORAY!
Of course there are tons, I mean loads of baking recipes with PB, but it is also very tasty in savory dishes! In my recent search for new veggie recipes, I came across this one from Carrie On Vegan. Of course I didn’t follow it to the T, but just not even thinking about what I was doing, I ended up with a very tasty veggie stir fry! Even hubb and the kids devoured it!! WIN!
Papillote is a french word that means “wrapped in”, here, the fish is wrapped in foil. You can add a lot of things, along with the fish, to enhance the flavors. I personally love to wrap it with onions, tomatoes and parsley. The options are endless! Basically, because the fish is totally sealed in foil, it will cook by steam from its own juice that are trapped in the sealed foil. So you virtually need no fat at all to cook it, it just won’t stick, and will still be extra tender.
SO? Well, I’m happy, I fit in my skinnies again! That’s just what I wanted! Plus forcing myself into eating so much veggies really helped me rediscover how good and simple it can be. I am ready to re-introduce more fresh food in my diet. Also ready all together to eat healthier. I did a run to the natural store this week-end and stocked up on healthy snacks, so no reason to cave again!
Not sure if it is actually true, but some say surgeons used to give this diet to patient before heart surgery, because it is supposed to unclog your system from bad fats and all that stuff. Honestly, the whole month of December, all the way until yesterday morning (had my work holiday party last night, and had way too much to drink, so perfect timing to clean up the alcohol too remaining in my system), I have made no concessions!!!
Let’s enjoy those wonderful products of summer, like fresh ripped tomatoes! if you are one of those lucky ones and have had so many tomatoes in your garden, that you just don’t know what to do with them (and I envy you, I had NOTHING growing this year …), this is the perfect recipe for using them all!
It’s done! I thought it would happen this year, but yeah! Pickling cukes is something I try to do every summer, because I do it the french way, wich is quite different from the regular american pickles.
This side dish is the perfect addition to your BBQ feast; refresing, healthy and zesty, everyone will enjoy a scoop of it, really, everyone! It answers to pretty much all kinds of diet: vegan, dairy free, gluten free… and more, but none the less, amazingly tasty!
For a few occasions already, I have made popsicles with a banana base, and the kids LOVE it, the parents like it because it’s home made, easy and pretty healthy, and it tastes amazing!
Hibiscus Tea, or Agua de Jamaica Well, I am not enjoying those beautiful sunny days… I have been battling a nasty ear infection and therefore I’m stuck at home… Although, when leaving the pharmacy for my antibiotics prescription, I couldn’t resist visiting my favorite speciality food store; Galloway’s.
