Today I was thinking about posting the recipe of my ‘bomb’ Tacos, but instead decided to share this variation to the usual “Taco Tuesday”: Chicken Avocado & Jalapeño Burgers. Literally one of the best burgers I’ve had in my life! Quick and easy to prepare, super tasty and fresh with cilantro and a squeeze of lime. The whole serving size (3 of them), barely packs 400 calories of awesome proteins and good fat. Can’t get enough of them! ❤ ❤ ❤ Continue reading “Nicole’s CHICKEN AVOCADO & JALAPENO BURGERS”
I love this quick salad! It’s a great option to stick to a healthy meal when you are on the go, or just don’t feel like cooking. It literally takes few minutes to put together and not only it tastes great, but it’s packed with vitamins and fibers too. Did you know there is now direct evidence between garbanzo beans and appetite? A recent study showed participants that included garbanzo beans in their diet reported more satisfaction, consumed fewer processed food snacks, and overall ate less, beating unwanted cravings. I am a big fan. Continue reading “Nicole’s QUICK & DELICIOUS GARBANZO BEAN SALAD”
When I talk about my love for chocolate, people smile and say “Who doesn’t love chocolate?!”. Exactly! I’ve been on my journey of clean eating for about 7 months now, so my ‘chocolate’ fix comes from raw cacao and cocoa powder goods. Cutting processed sugar made such an incredible impact on my well-being, I have no intention going back! Still, who said healthy eating has to be boring and tasteless? I treat myself with healthy & tasty dessert ALL the time. And you can trust my word on it! This quick mug cake is the perfect fix for an unexpected dinner guest or (if you are anything like me) a night in: pjs, couch, blanket and Netflix. Oh boy!

Continue reading “Nicole’s FRESH CRANBERRY ORANGE CINNAMON MUFFINS”
Oh my! I have been dealing with a nasty cold these past few days. I generally try to avoid using conventional medicine to ‘cure’ myself, as I rather strengthen my immune system through a diet packed with the right nutrients, vitamins and minerals. So, on top of a lot of juicing, leafy greens, and gallons (literally!) of hot ginger/lemon/raw honey teas I have been treating myself with this incredible soup. Continue reading “Nicole’s SWEET POTATOES GARLIC & TURMERIC SOUP”
This is the season! And who doesn’t love them?! Did you know they are considered one of the ‘world’s healthiest foods’? Cranberries provide us with an incredible array of phytonutrients, such as phenolic acids, proanthocyanidins, anthocyanins, flavonoids and triterpenoids. They also are a very good source of vitamin C, dietary fiber, and manganese, as well as a good source of vitamin E, vitamin K, copper, and pantothenic acid. Continue reading “CRANBERRIES YAY!”
Tonight I picked my Easy-Peasy Spaghetti Squash. As much as I’m ready for ‘Holiday recipes’, it has been so warm lately here in Southern California, I still just crave light and refreshing foods.
