Grain-free and dairy-free enchiladas filled with delicious butternut squash, chicken, peppers, onions and tomatoes simmered in a skillet and topped with homemade salsa. For the tortilla wraps I simply mixed egg whites with almond flour. This dish is a great example for clean eating and cooking without even making anyone notice how clean and healthy this meal actually is.
A green tropical smoothie with pineapple, mango, banana and spinach. I call this smoothie also my good-morning Hulk Smoothie. It deserves its name not only for the color, but also because it gives your metabolism the right kick in the morning to start and works for me like the super power drink!
This smoothie is a real vitamin bomb, covering 3 of your daily recommended fruit servings and 1 vegetables portion. In addition to that the smoothie is gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and vegan. If you are following the WeightWatchers diet you can enjoy this shake for only 1 PP.
Quite a lot of good reasons to pull out your blender…
Delicious and healthy arugula salad with onion, mushrooms and grilled tofu, seasoned with Italian olive oil and balsamic dressing. Such a simple and quick weeknight meal, with ingredients you might already have on hand. You can use chicken or beef instead of tofu and you can add any other vegetables to the salad like cherry tomatoes or bell peppers. The simplest things are often the best!
My apologies for “just” an iPhone picture, which is not giving enough credit to this fabulous dish, but I didn’t expect this recipe turning out so well! I promise, next time I do this I will update this post with a better image
These mini apple pies are a great party treat. They are easily made in a muffin tin and a great finger food.
Often at parties, the guests don’t want to be the first to cut into a pie, but these mini pies will be grabbed up fast.
A quick frittata with kale, red bell peppers and bacon. Simple enough to prepare for a weekday dinner yet healthy and filling enough to make you feel well nourished.
I need to admit that I have tried so many frittata recipes before I could post this one. Most of my frittatas became either egg scrambles with vegetables or simple omelets. But finally I have found a perfect recipe and the perfect technic, I couldn’t wait to share with you!
Lemony codfish filet coated in ground almonds and served on tender bok choy with ginger. This chinese inspired dish has a great balance of flavor combinations: sour, sweet and a little spicy.
I just recently discovered bok choy as one the greatest and simplest green veggies ever. First of all bok choy needs only about 5 minutes in the pan and while being stir fried it releases a juice which makes it so soft and tender, almost oily I would say. So if you pass by an Asian supermarket, grab this super-veggie and try it!
When I prepare fish I love experimenting with different kinds of coating. I’m not a fan of the common bread-crumbs coating, so I’m always trying different ingredients to create a crispy crust such as couscous for example (recipe for codfish in couscous crust here). This time I decided within my paleo/whole30 diet to try to coat the codfish filets in ground almonds. An amazing alternative, especially for those of you who follows a gluten-free, low-carb or paleo diet.
Chinese cabbage, chicken and carrot sautéed in coconut oil, topped with sliced avocado and wrapped in an “tortilla” made out of egg-white and almond flour. Doesn’t it sound great?
I wasn’t quite sure how to name my rolls. I was thinking about healthy tortillas or omelette wraps, but it didn’t sound as delicious as these rolls actually have been. As the chinese cabbage and carrot reminded me of spring rolls, I thought I should go for “Spring Rolls”! But these rolls have not much in common with the chinese fast food rolls you may be familiar with. They are super healthy, loaded with a lot of vegetables, are rich in protein but low in fat and no simple carbs. Yes NO CARBS! Is there any reason not to eat them?
Lean ground beef sautéed in coconut oil with carrots, peppers, green beans, broccoli and ginger. An amazingly delicious and well-balanced dish, ready in only 15 minutes.
If you are following me on instagram, you might have noticed that I have recently started the Whole30 diet. This diet can be described as a nutritional restart for your body to restore a healthy metabolism, balance the immune system and to stop cravings and unhealthy food habits. The diet is pretty restrictive and allows to eat only whole and unprocessed foods. This means that you’re left with the foods you can ideally pick or hunt: veggies, fruit and meat. If you want to read more about the program, all information are available on the whole30 homepage: www. whole30.com.
Following this diet I had to increase my meat intake and partially review the way I cook and prepare my meals. For this recipe I have found the perfect way to use only whole ingredients without compromising on taste. Believe me, this recipe is really good! It’s low on fat and sodium, gluten-free, low-carb and it is paleo and whole30 approved.
Marinated Chicken in olive oil, thyme and oregano with mediterranean sautéed wok vegetables. I can’t even tell you how delicious this dish was, how tender the chicken has been and how juicy and amazing the vegetables turned out. You simply need to try this….
My partner prepared this dish for me the other day, when I came home exhausted from the gym. This dish is so good, that it’s even more than just to say “I love you”. Prepare this for someone you love, yourself included, and enjoy each bite!
This dish is good in every sense: It tastes good, it’s low-carb, low-fat, gluten-free, paleo-friendly and contains only good and whole ingredients.
