Lemon Roasted Chicken

May 23, 2013

It’s sunny and the weather is finally warming up here. Too bad I have been sick for almost two weeks.  But thing’s are looking up, I’m not feeling like complete death anymore, just congested. I have kept to my workout plan though. I feel this helps speed up the healing. Don’t have a verdict on this yet. One of the major questions I have gotten when asked about my Revolt Fitness program is “What are you eating? Rice crackers?” and my response “Heck no! Delicious clean food”. For any of you that have been following my blog for sometime know that I love love love FOOD. It’s a passion. I […]

Roasted Grapefruit – A Clean Snack

May 14, 2013

I just finished my Revolt workout and damn….my lower body is just mush! But a fantastic mush! haha. It feels so great to have my workout complete before the hubby even gets home and dinner is already prepped (meal preps on Sunday) so I have SOO much spare time. It’s the oddest feeling. I feel so much less stress now with all my meals being prepped on Sunday. My weeknights are much easier to handle with my schedule. Before, I wouldn’t actually sit down and relax till 8-9pm at night. That is a long time since I start my day at 6:30am. By the time the weekend came I was […]

Vegetarian Minestrone Soup

When George had his surgery I knew he wouldn’t be able to eat a whole lot after. I figured soup would probably be the best bet. While he was in surgery I made this soup as I know it’s full of flavour and quite filling. This soup is vegan and gluten free, but is great for anyone!! Happy Vegan Tuesday! Ingredients: Yields 5-6 LARGE servings 1 large onion, minced 4 garlic cloves, minced 2T EVOO 3 large carrots, chopped 1 large yukon potato 6 cups of vegetable broth 1 can chickpeas, rinsed 1 28oz diced tomatoes with juice 3 celery stalks, chopped 1T oregano 1t thyme 2 bay leaves 2T tomato paste salt and […]

I hope everyone had a safe and fun St. Patrick’s Day! I know I sure did!! I saw some of you made my Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes!! Sure made my weekend 🙂 I have been getting a lot of tweet requests for some healthy snacks that you guys can easily make and are super tasty .  Something I am really obsessed with right now is roasted chickpeas.

So far this is my favorite […]

Vegan Coconut Whipped Cream

February 16, 2013

Belgium waffles, fresh cut fruit, pure maple syrup ….. oh and that lovely homemade plump of whipped cream…YUM. That right there is a breakfast I LIVE for. Of course only on the weekends and I try to only have it one day. But still, I dream about such decadence for my belly LOL. Now sadly for my poor lactose intolerant husband,  he has had to pretend like that whipped cream does not belong on his crispy belgium waffle, that it is something he has imagined. Till now! Cue in Coconut milk. I often will substitute cream in recipes with coconut milk, it has just the right thickness and often compliments the meal quite nicely. […]
