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.

Jump to Recipe PIN It! If you haven’t heard of dessert hummus yet, get ready for a treat! Recently, there has been several brands of dessert hummus popping up. I believe it all started with a company that pitched on Shark Tank and received a $600,000 offer. The popularity of dessert hummus has grown considerably and for good reason! Cheap, healthy, versatile, and suitable for gluten free and vegan diets (if you are vegan and don’t eat honey it is easily replaced with maple syrup or agave syrup), dessert hummus appeals to a wide audience.

I was a super late convert to the Instant Pot phenomenon. I read review after review but didn’t really buy into the hype until I started reading about how it could cook grains, it could saute, it could make “baked” potatoes, pasta, and even steam veggies.
Light-bulb moment — this could be epic for my meal prepping routine.
I was right. View Post
