Let’s Start Cooking!
September 22, No-bake chocolate cookies and Dijon-marinated steak
This weekend’s recipes are all about snacks and steaks! Snacks are an important part of healthy eating, and the right type of snack can help keep you feeling full, fight cravings, and prevent overeating.
Steak is one of life’s pleasures and luxuries, so it makes sense that, if you are going to spend your hard-earned cash on steaks, that they are tasty and tender, and not as tough as old boots!
For our recipes for this weekend, I’m going to share my favourite healthy no-bake cookies, and a great way to make sure you never have to eat tough steaks again.
Why not spend some time with your family and friends, trying these wonderful recipes and sharing some delicious food? It’s what weekends are for!
September 15, Quinoa Pancakes and In your sleep chili
Weekends should be a time for relaxing and spending time with your friends and family. It’s also a good time to eat some delicious, healthy, different food. However, the last thing you want to do is spend your entire weekend cooking!
This weekend’s recipes are quick, easy, but so good you’ll want to share them with your family and your friends. Best of all, you’ll still be free to get out and do whatever you want, as they don’t take long to prepare. Perfect for the weekend.
September 8, Hot Chocolate Banana-Nut Oatmeal and Slow Cooker Tortilla Chicken Stew
Weekends are the perfect time to experiment in the kitchen. With no work to worry about, you can take your time to try out new, exciting recipes that are, of course, healthy too.
I’ve got two great recipes for you to make this weekend. One is a delicious slow cooker chicken stew, and the other one is for a decadent, chocolaty, nutty breakfast. I know you and your family will love both of these weekend feasts!
Friday, April 7 – Flourless Pancakes and Oven-baked frittata
Pancakes without flour – That’s right, only bananas and eggs. You’ll love it. Perfect for a nice Saturday family breakfast or for an evening snack with your friends on Sunday. These high protein pancakes are gluten-free so everybody will love them.
Oven-baked frittata – Healthy vegetables baked with eggs and cheese. Veggies cooked in the oven taste great, and mixed with egg and cheese, are even better. With only 20 minutes of cooking time, this dish is perfect for lunch this weekend. Enjoy it with a glass of white wine. It’s the weekend you deserve it!
Friday, April 14 – Mango & Avocado Smoothie and Light Lasagna
Mango and Avocado Smoothie – Preparation time: 6 minutes.
I know how easy it is to overeat during the holidays so, tomorrow morning, I’m going to start my day with this smoothie that will make me feel full for the whole morning.
Avocado contains healthy fats which make you feel fuller for longer and that means you won’t be tempted to eat more than you should.
Light lasagna – Cooking time 30 minutes.
This lasagna is light on calories because it is not made with pasta! Instead we will use sheets of sliced zucchini. No pasta means less carbs! It’s homemade so it’s also low sugar and high in protein meal but, despite being healthy, it’s still super-tasty and perfect for your family and friends.
Tip: Make extra servings, freeze them, and enjoy during the week with no extra effort or time needed.
Friday, April 21 – Stir-fried chicken & Swedish Meatballs
Today, I would like to share 2 recipes with you for this weekend’s meals; a quick meal and another that is a bit more elaborated but still easy : Stir-fried chicken with broccoli and Swedish Meatballs.
Stir-fried chicken with broccoli, a delicious meal mixing chicken with super-healthy broccoli, that you can prepare in less than 15 minutes. It’s a low fat and low sugar meal but it’s high in protein. A perfect meal for after a workout.
Swedish Meatballs, this is so delicious! This recipe takes a little bit more work, so take your time, relax and enjoy the process of preparing a delicious meal for you and your loved friends or family. It’s a low carb meal, so it’s perfect for those looking to lose weight. If you go the extra mile, serve it with zucchini noodles to save carbs and calories. I know you and your family will love it.
