What do you think of when you hear the word HUMMUS?! Do you think of a traditional, simple, tahini spiced dip? Do you think of the creamy swirl of a tasty store-bought brand that gets swiftly disturbed by a chip or carrot? For me, I automatically think of the word VERSATILITY. My heart was slightly broken (dramatic?) when I found out I had to avoid garlic. I battled my stomach and my body with food intolerances for years until I […]

This mango apple banana smoothie is one of my favorite breakfast smoothies. It is so simple, with only 4 ingredients: mango, apple, banana and water. No extra sweetener is needed, since all three fruits have plenty of natural sugar. The water gets things moving, while the frozen mango chunks and banana adds a nice, thick and creamy consistency. Mango Apple Banana Smoothie Ingredients 1 Gala apple, cored and chopped 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks 1 banana 1/2 cup water Instructions […]

It is normally made with creme fraiche as the sauce, but I lightened it up by using a mixture of light sour cream and creme fraiche. A splash of nutmeg and pepper makes all the difference. On top sits thinly sliced onions and chopped ham. Cheese is optional, but I like to sprinkle a little gruyere or mozzarella over the top before putting it […]

We rarely buy store-bought salad dressings. Making them at home is so easy, and saves a lot of money in the long run! This parmesan vinaigrette requires few ingredients, and is very flavorful. I used pre-shredded carrots to save time, and threw some bread crisps on top for some carbs and extra crunch. All you need for the dressing is olive oil, garlic, mustard, red wine vinegar and shredded parmesan cheese. Parmesan Vinaigrette Salad Dressing Ingredients ¼ cup fresh grated […]
