MY TV SHOW PREMIERE!

Hey guys! I know this isn’t food related but I just had to share. I’ve been with a reality tv company for some time now and I was granted the opportunity to participate in my first reality tv show last year in October. The series is called Panic Button, and it is a show about…

HOMEMADE TZATZIKI SAUCE

I had no idea that making this sauce would be so easy and delicious! Definitely a healthier substitute to the regular tzatziki sauce. I will be posting a recipe with this sauce soon just to give you an idea of meals you can enjoy with it. *Note: for vegans, you can substitute the greek yogurt…

RASPBERRY ORANGE GRAPEFRUIT FLAVORED PERRIER

Craving a sweet and fizzy beverage? Ditch the canned beverages and choose sparkling water (preferably sugar free) instead! A lot of the traditional canned beverages like coke and fruit juices contain high fructose corn syrup, and this is detrimental to your health because it can cause a host of health problems such as obesity, high…

PUMPKIN SPICED CUSTARD (SUGAR FREE)

I love pumpkin, so much that I usually stock up on a whole bunch right after they go on sale after thanksgiving 🙂 So now that I have tons of pumpkin cans in my kitchen, I have to come up with recipes to utilize the pumpkin I have, so I came across this recipe on…

SPICY CHILI ZUCCHINI CHIPS

A perfect guilt free and yummy snack to enjoy on a saturday night! This was inspired by my friend Sheereen! Check out her awesome food blog at dieffs.wordpress.com for more healthy and delicious recipes. I definitely devoured these while watching the UFC fights last night (i’m a huge fan!) This is a perfect substitute for…

CUCUMBER AND LEMON RASPBERRY NOODLE SALAD

Oh yea! One of my old favourites from last summer, but can be consumed at any season 😉 A refreshing fun salad that will keep you hydrated during the day! This recipe is fairy easy; make the noodles by slicing thin layers of a cucumber with a potato peeler. Top noodle with a lemon slice…

SPICY BLACKBERRY JAM (PECTIN FREE AND SUGAR FREE)

I will admit that this photo isn’t so easy on the eyes, but the point is pretty clear! Sugar free/pectin free jam for the win! I’ve been to every natural food store available in my city and all the jams/fruit spreads I found either contained sugar, or was made from concentrate, some even had some…

LEMON AND CUCUMBER MINT INFUSED WATER (MORNING TEA)

I’m sure you all know the benefits of drinking water, but sometimes, it could be somewhat difficult getting your daily amounts of water a day, plus drinking plain water isn’t something to look forward to (except you are water obsessed like me) because it isn’t exciting. However, you have to drink more water and drink…

HOMEMADE PESTO

There are so many different kinds of pesto, and each kind comes with a unique twist which gives it a unique flavour. Pesto is a great substitute for tomato based/pasta sauces, and can also be used on pastas, quinoa, salads, and many more. Plus, it also contains far less/no sodium compared to the traditional canned…

SUGA FREE SMOKEY BEAR DRESSING

Finally! A salad dressing recipe that is sugar free and nutritious! It feels good to be able to spice up your salad without the extra added sugars that you find in other traditional salad dressings, plus it also has a spicy sour kick which balances out the sweetness. Total nom nom land 😀 Recipe: 1/2…

HOMEMADE SPICY HUMMUS SPREAD

This recipe is a must try! Super easy with fresh ingredients and spices. I put that s??t on everything 😉 and yes I may be slightly corny and I embrace it 🙂 Recipe: 1 can organic garbanzo beans A handful of fresh cilantro leaves 1/3 cup grape tomatoes 1/4 cup diced green peppers Half a…

A BERRY DAIRY BEDTIME SNACK

Okay, so I am pretty sure that almost everyone is somewhat familiar with the “no eating after 7pm rule” and realistically, it’s unpractical crap, especially for individuals who are highly active, athletic, or even bodybuilders or figure/fitness models. People who fall under any of these categories are constantly burning calories/ fat even when they aren’t…
