Veggies noodles




My friend told me about this little tool he got at Bartells for 14,99 that makes veggies noodles. I got very excited about and ran to the store to buy one for myself. It is very easy to use i just put zucchini and yellow squash inside twist around and voila it makes delicious noodles.


I tried with carrots also and worked great. I made the veggies noodles and some homemade tomato sauce with some grilled chicken and lunch was ready.

Amazing thing about it is that taste almost like noodles but it isn’t and also is very healthy. If you don’t have it and still wants to have veggies noodle you can use a potato peel thing. I used before. Or cut into little pieces.





You can also use it on cucumber to make salads. Yummy and healthy. Eat pasta without feeling guilty.


Healthy baked eggplant



Hello there,

Today the recipe is super simple. I sliced a eggplant and dip in egg white and quinoa flakes. I baked it around 20 minutes or so on 400F.

You can also add pink salt and pepper but I forgot add on mine. If you want it crunch just bake longer. It is a very light healthy side dish for dinner or you can eat with hummus or some other dip. I just ate itself because I try keep my meals very simple.


Hope you enjoy it as I did.



Gluten free Irish soda bread

Irish soda bread

This is an amazing recipe I found on Elana’s Pantry blog . I used honey instead agave nectar.

Here is the ingredients:


2 ¾ cups blanched almond flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
½ cup raisins
2 eggs
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
pinch of caraway seeds

In a large bowl combine almond flour, salt, baking soda and raisins

In a smaller bowl combine eggs, honey and apple cider vinegar

Mix wet ingredients into dry.  Place dough on a baking tray and form dough into a large, flat circle that is 8 inches across and 1 ½ inches tall. Using a serrated knife, score top of dough  a half an inch deep in shape of a cross. Sprinkle top of bread with caraway seeds.

Bake at 350° for 20 minutes, then turn off oven and leave bread in for 10 more minutes.

This bread is delicious I can’t stop eat it.

My husband and I love this bread. Especially now that we also know how to make Irish coffee. 😉

Almond flour pita bread

I am totally in love with almond flour. Buttery flavor packed with protein and healthy fat…yummy. Researching for a low carb pita bread option. I found this gluten free almond flour pita bread recipe. Here is  Michelle’s blog where I found the recipe of this amazing pita.


  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon oil or melted butter ( I used olive oil)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour, firmly packed ( I didn’t have any so I didn’t use it)
  • 1/4 cup almond flour, firmly packed ( I used 1 1/4 instead no sure if I did it right)
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt.

Preheat oven to 350.Whisk together egg, water and oil. Add dry ingredients, whisk well to combine.Pour into 2 equal portions onto a well greased sheet tray.

Spread each portion to a 5-6 inch round.Bake for 18-20 minutes, it will be darker in color, and slightly crisp around the edges.

Make 2 pita breads.

Here is my perfect meal. Homemade hummus, almond pita and spinach = perfect meal

My lunch:

As you noticed mine does not look as nice Michelle’s. I will make it again and post updates in case I can make it better looking pitas. 🙂
