Apple & cinnamon

A034C95A-4033-4559-B15D-742A527870CBTrying to find original, healthy snacks as we are in the mood #nosugar #nocalories. No more chocolate, cookies and sweets. That’s the challenge remember…

Had a look into my cook book collection – I have more or less 300 of them – and got out this « I’m a foodie » cook book. Eating like an expert. Full of healthy tips for drinks, breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner. They also include a weekplanner.Highly recommended!

8E8AFB84-E0FD-43D2-AD89-7B0B707B0F38I went for the fried apples with cinnamon.

I am not a huge cinnamon fan, but I have to say that this combination matches perfectly.

Ready in 5 minutes. So easy!


Chicken « cordon blue » and a salad


Chicken « cordon blue » prepared on the grill without any butter or olive oil. Combined with a salad of tomatoes, cucumber and red onion. You can add some fried pine kernel. Gives it a nice taste!

For the vinaigrette: one spoon of champagne vinegar and two spoons of sunflower oil.

This is how you prepare a healthy lunch… when all of a sudden the husbie suffers from diabetes. And as from now on, we need to pay attention to what we will eat and drink. A real challenge for foodies like us!

Penne with thyme in a creamy Gorgonzola sauce

94039469-1A9A-461E-9B04-1A45B5FFA4F7Ingredients (serves 2): 150gr penne, olive oil, garlic, 250gr mushrooms, 100ml vegetable stock, 175ml cream, 100gr Gorgonzola cheese and some thyme.

I never tried to combine these ingredients before but as I saw this recipe @libellelekker I wanted to give it a try. And it’s worth trying it, an excellent pastadish!

Cook the penne following the instructions on the package. In a separate pan, heat the olive oil and add the garlic. After some minutes add the mushrooms (cut in slices) and let stir for 5 minutes. Add the vegetable stock and the cream and let cook for an extra 10 minutes untill you get a sticky sauce. Mix with the cooked penne and serve. On your dish, add some Gorgonzola cheese and some thyme.



Chicken and mushroom vol-au-vent

6C06121E-6F30-4B06-A960-DF8332DFF2D7A round bite-sized shell of puff pastry, with a pastry lid, can be filled with a lot of different fillings. The traditional recipe is a delicate filling made up of chicken and mushrooms, bound with a sauce. I also add a bit of cream in the sauce. A bit more calories, but worth the delicious taste! I normally serve vol-au-vent with fries, but for once I went for croquettes. Not bad at all!
