Cauliflower tabbouhleh & beef meatballs

A year ago we discovered that cauliflower is the most versatile carb substitute and since then we have prepared lots of different wonderful recipes with it: from the famous cauliflower crust pizza to this healthy and delicious lunch. But we’ve found the perfect cauliflower recipe. This tabbouleh is light, fulfilling and it almost beats the original recipe made with bulgur.

2015 Recipe recap

It’s that time of the year again.  The moment we look back and remember… what we’ve eaten and cooked! To be honest we are quite impressed by the number of recipes that we’ve managed to publish here! It’s been an hectic year with lots of work, but most of our Sundays were spent in the kitchen, trying new recipes. 2015 was the year of healthy cooking. Yes, we have shared with you a surprisingly high number of low carb, full of veggies, yet delicious dishes. But we’ve also had time to induldge… you know, just to find the right balance ;) Here you have our 2015 recipe recap! And it’s a long one!

Chicken and vegetables stir-fry

A few weeks ago, we got a wok. I know, so 2002!  But hey, we are usually late to all the parties. So during the last rainy weekends we’ve been experimenting with some recipes and we have finally created our own. It’s delicious, quite healthy and low in carbohydrates, so you won’t feel guilty eating a nice chocolatey pudding afterwards (the purpose of all our low in carbohydrates recipes). You will need: 2 skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces 1 big red pepper, finely sliced 1 red onion, finely sliced 1 small head of broccoli, cut into small florets Lots of mushrooms, finely sliced 2 spring onions, finely sliced 2 cloves of garlic 2 red chillies, finely sliced Extra virgin olive oil Sesame oil Soya sauce Salt Fresh coriander (to taste) Heat one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in your wok. Season the chicken with a pinch of salt, then add to the wok and stir-fry until it’s golden. Remove from the wok and reserve. Now heat one tablespoon of extra virgin olive …

Sweet & soft almond bites

This is one of our latest and happiest experiments in the kitchen. Lately we’ve been trying to cut down on sugar, mostly because we are scared to death every time someone puts a sugar cube in front of our face (or anything containing sugar for that matter).  In case you don’t know: sugar is the devil. And we thought that the worst thing that could happen to us was gluten… As if! Nowadays sugar is society’s worst enemy. Honestly, we can’t keep up with all the things that are terrible for our health. Obviously, we know that all those food-related hate speeches that periodically take over our society are mostly trends that come and go and, even though sugar is not the best thing for you, the key is moderation. However, I have to admit that lately I’ve been rethinking a few of my recipes, mostly the ones that involve sugar. Baking is not the same anymore. I guess we are easily influenced and as a result we think twice before baking one of those …

Breakfast muffins

We love a good breakfast but we try to keep things as healthy as possible on a daily basis (if only to have a nice pudding after dinner. You know, for balance.) These wheat bran, date and banana muffins are great to start your day on a sweet note but with lots of nutrients and a good conscience.

We survived the Kayla Itsines’ BBG

If you don’t live under a rock, you’ll know Kayla Itsines. Together with her boyfriend she has created a series of guides – the Bikini Body Guides – that are supposed to take you from coach potato to beach babe. So last October we decided to give them a try. Just look at the hashtag #bbgprogress on Instagram and you will be, at least, intrigued. Well, after completing the first round (there are three of them) I have my own thoughts about this famous fitness programm.

Egg whites omelette
