We're days away from a new year and of course the planning is in full swing here. We aren't party-people so New Year's usually entails a nice, quiet evening with champagne and a good dessert. And speaking of dessert - I want to share one with you here that I am sure you will love.
This year we have made it our goal to eat healthier and remove processed foods from our diet. We have made a lot of changes and became more creative in the kitchen (in the previous post that I made delicious brownies out of chickpeas) so
This year we made the conscious choice to eat better and by that we mean healthier.
As a result, we eliminated processed foods and sweets, reduced unhealthy carbs (like white bread or white pasta) and meats.
We have definitely noticed benefits health and appearance wise, but once in a while our sweet tooth kicks in and, well, we need to do something about that.
Are you already making plans for the next weekend, like I am? Do those involve any kind of pool or backyard party? If so, here's an idea for you.
Meatballs aren't just for pasta or meatball subs. Here's my easy and fun recipe that, I'm sure, everyone will love.
Here's what I did.
Is there an American holiday where deviled eggs aren't a staple? I don't think so. If you do though, let me know which one it is.
On holidays, I like to prepare some foods that we don't eat everyday, and deviled eggs is one of the favorite, they're easy and tasty.
Even though I learned to make deviled eggs not too long ago, I never follow recipes. I like to modify them, adding "my own", especially when I don't have the exact ingredients they call for.
All that being said, these are the ingredients I used to make the deviled eggs pictured:
Isn't it funny how the times you're out of ideas for what to make for lunch, you come up with great recipes, out of the blue, with simple ingredients you have on hand? And it turns out better than the times you had clear images on what you want but was disappointed?
So this salad came to be and it was so yummy, I added it to my "make it again" list.
Here are the ingredients that made this happen:
There comes that lunch or dinner time when I want to eat my veggies in a tasty, fun way. The boring cooked quinoa didn't please me so I thought of mixing it in my salad. Yes, I know there's nothing innovative about it, but I thought I'd share this recipe with you, for the times when you're looking for a nutritious easy meal.
I made this salad in minutes and it nicely accompanied some pork chops we cooked up (not pictured).
It's really easy and yummy. Try it yourself!
I used the following ingredients:
Hi there. I have been really busy lately, hence my absence here. Not to mention that the last days I've also been really tired, especially due to Comic-Con International 2016, but about that, in a different post.
Since the weekend is upon us, again (TGIF, am I right?), here's another idea for your pool / backyard party, or picnic, or well, no occasion. And it involves artichokes.
I love artichokes! In every form. And I love hummus.
Do I have your attention yet? Keep on reading!
