Healthy Recipes Archives

Welcome to my collection of healthy recipes! I have been passionate about cooking ever since I moved out of my parent’s house when I was 19 and starting university. With a baby and a partner to cook for, I had to lear quick. As a kid, I hadn’t been one to learn from or help my mother cook.

However, my parents instilled a love of healthy recipes and cooking in me as they focused on nutritious food a lot when I was growing up.

My father cooked a lot and made a large variety of healthy recipes from all different cultures. On the other hand, mother made the classic stand by dishes we all remember fondly from the 90s.

After I had my son, Kaden, I decided to get into shape. I’d loved fitness and working out since a young age (I started my own workout routine in my bedroom with water jugs and laundry detergent when I was 14).

Soon, I started to workout in my living room and at my university gym. I also began researching healthy recipes and foods. When fully committed to my new lifestyle, I lost a lot of weight.

The power of being able to make changes in my body, on my own, based on my OWN choices felt really good. I was biking everywhere, working out and eating healthy!

Variety is important to me and learned to make many, many different dishes. I’ve experimented with a lot of different types of cooking.

I was vegetarian for quite a number of years, I tried low fat, low carb, high protein, clean eating, soaking and fermenting, and more. Later, I counted macros and weighed and measured my food for several years.

My healthy recipes reflect everything I’ve learned and am continuing to learn about nutrition.

I am currently taking a Sports and Exercise Nutrition course as well.

You will soon discover my love of oatmeal, breakfast foods, and my use of protein powder in my healthy recipes!

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore (Instant Pot Option)

Yes! It’s Fall! I am a summer lover but the warm, comforting food in the Fall helps me forget that Winter is coming. This slow cooker chicken cacciatore is perfect for that purpose. The use of a slow cooker is synonymous with autumnal comfort food for me. The long, slow cooking process allows you to set up your dish to cook during the work day or over night. However, the Instant Pot can take all the time out of this dish instead. The results are similar but the Instant Pot makes this dish a snap to prepare. What is Chicken…
