Grain Free Apple Cinnamon Yeast Bread

Hello out there! I’m super excited to get back to recipe making and blogging! I’ve been trying not to go too crazy but there are just so many things I want to try!! applebread (22 of 27)


Salty Citrus-y Mackerel

I have to say that this recipe is AWESOME!

Really!

And that’s not to say that the other recipes that I post aren’t. They’re good too. But this recipe is seriously fantastic. Unless you don’t like fish. orangemackerel (29 of 31)


Iced Coffee-Tea

I first saw this idea of coffee-tea in Hong Kong.  Talk about a pick-me-up!  It’s actually very refreshing and delicious.  This simple recipe uses only 3 ingredients to create a cool and creamy low-calorie coffee treat.

Servings: 1

Ingredients:

~3/4 cup hot water

-1 tea bag (I used Earl Grey, use your favorite flavored black tea)

-2 packets of 1/2 calorie coffee mix

-sweet soy milk or almond milk (optional)

Directions

1) Steep the tea bag in the hot water for 3-5 minutes.

2) Add about 2-3 tablespoons of the hot tea to the coffee mix in a mug.  This will dissolve the coffee.


Sweet Kabocha Puree

Last week I promised the recipe for the dip you saw with the Low Carb Protein Stick recipe, so here it is!

As you know, I LOVE kabocha. Love Love Love Love Love Love Love kabocha!!! Actually now, I get a discount at my local “Angel Home Mart”- just a random Korean grocery store on danhobak  단호박, as it’s called here. I told them it is my favourite, and because they like me, they say “special discount, only for you” :)


Korean Sweet Rice Cake ‘Samoas’

Korean sweet rice cakes (gyungdan) are traditionally filled with red bean paste and coated in different grain or bean powders.  I created this rice cake recipe by chance when I was experimenting with different fillings and coatings and wound up with one that tastes like the famous ‘samoas’ girl scout cookie!  However, they are much healthier.  There are many types of Korean rice cakes, but this one is the easiest as it does not require ‘pounding’ with a pestle.  You simply make the 4-ingredient dough and boil the rice cake balls.  This particular version is filled with Nutella and coated with toasted coconut…yum!  Feel free to create your own unique variations.

Low Carb Protein Sticks

This week I’m breaking the post into two parts. This post will be the protein part. Next week will be the carb part. Together, these recipes have been my post workout meal of choice recently. IMG_1426-25So what is a protein stick? Um well basically it’s just a protein pancake that has been cut into stick form. Exciting right?


Curried Chicken with Creamy Veggie Puree

I sort of have a love hate relationship with chicken.

Chicken+puree (35 of 44)

It’s one of those foods that is usually safe to get when you eat out, and is pretty readily available, both positives. Also, it fits into my meal plan on both rest days and training days, so its easy for me too cook a big batch and be able to eat it every day of the week. However- whenever you end up eating something over and over and over… you can get pretty sick of it.


Tom Yam Soup with Mackerel (or frogs!)

Happy Lunar New Year everyone!  And although it is the Year of the Snake, I’m posting something with frogs- if you so dare!_MG_1286Okay so I made this soup with mackerel, a perfectly normal fish, when I made this at home.. however- I did partake in jungle frog Tom Yam soup when I went on a trek in the Northern Thailand jungle.IMG_1688I shared some of these photos already, but I didn’t really go into detail.


Chocolate Mint Thick Fudge Pudding

*My next post will be from after my Thailand vacation- look forward to something Thai inspired by the end of this week!*

This is a recipe I enjoyed a lot this summer. It was a great one to cook up then package for  a meal at work._MG_0967
