Super Seed Squares

I’ve been experimenting with different protein bars and bites lately. Today I made these super seed squares. They are perfect for eating before or after a workout, on your way to yoga, or just when you feel like having a snack. A note about the protein powder, I normally use Pursana Vitality Mix, but it turns the…

Citrus Salmon with Roasted Tomatoes and Zoodles

I received a vegetable #spiralizer for my birthday a couple weeks ago, and have just now made the time to try it out. I have a Cuisique 8 in 1 Spiralizer, and so far I love it. It has several types of blades, a juicing adapter, and it holds all the finished veggies in a decent…

Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki sauce- not just for falafel or accompanying lamb dishes. We love this sauce for topping burgers, dipping rutabaga fries, or with a quinoa power bowl.

I think you get the idea despite…

Beef Boulettes with Turnip Hash Browns and a sunny side up egg

Here in Belgium, we have different cuts of meats available in the supermarket so Ta-Da..boulettes! These ones are ground beef. Turnips are slightly sweet…

Quinoa & Rutabaga Patties

It’s possible to make these ahead of time and freeze them for a quick meal option. *Ingredients* 1 cup cooked quinoa 1 large rutabaga, shredded 3 green onions, sliced 1 large clove of garlic 2…

Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Sauces are a way of life here in Belgium. There are many kinds, and each dish has it’s own special one. Can’t choose one sauce, why not add TWO?! Each day I try to make healthy lunches for Axel and I and per his request, I’ve been trying to find some delicious sauces to accompany…
