Healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies

Next to banana bread, cookies are perhaps one of the best creations of man!  As a mom and health coach, I always look for inspiration to ‘healthify’ these sweet treats for my little boy.   These CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA COOKIES are definitely the healthy kind but still taste absolutely delicious!  They are chewy, and not overly sweet.  They are refined sugar-free and are sweetened with coconut sugar instead.  I usually choose coconut sugar for baking since they are low-glycemic so it doesn’t give you that sugar spike. I used whole wheat flour but you can also use other flour of …

Salmon Parmesan Patties

Do you struggle with having your kids eat fish?  I do.  My toddler has become quite a picky-eater these days.  So I’m trying to be as creative when it comes to recreating dishes he loves.  He loves patties and meatballs but I swapped the proteins for fish this time.  I had leftover baked salmon from the other night so it was perfect for this dish.  You may also try other white fish like barramundi or sea bass, and also add any other vegetables that your little ones would love.   I’m thinking grated carrots, chopped capsicum, even grated zucchini perhaps? …

If there’s one thing I love to do apart from chasing my little boy and tinkering around my kitchen is to travel.  But I am sure you would agree how it can get challenging to stay on track with your healthy routine while travelling.  I am no party-pooper though and I still believe in enjoying the wanderlust moments and not having to snack purely on celery sticks during your entire tour. We recently went on our first snow trip experience as a family over at Falls Creek Victoria.   It was over 7-hours drive and we stayed there for 4 …

Super Moist Paleo Chocolate Cake (Grain-Free & Dairy-Free)

If you are looking for a decadent, extra moist, and yet super healthy chocolate cake recipe to wow your family and guests, then THIS IS IT!  This cake is grain-free, dairy-free, refined-sugar free and is unbelievably easy to make. Paleo cakes are usually made with almond flour (ground almonds) and coconut flour.  The other recipes I have tested had that sharp coconut taste which my boys weren’t too crazy about.  But this one though takes paleo chocolate cakes to a whole new level! It’s rich and bitter-chocolatey which means it’s not overly sweet and the coconut taste is barely noticeable. …

5 Steps to Making a Healthy & Delicious Vegetable Salad

One reason why I love salads so much is that they are so easy and quick to make (no pans to wash!), and they are nutrient-packed as well.  However, a common dilemma especially for those just beginning to make their own salads at home is that they get bored with having the same ingredients in their bowls.  I mean, lettuce-cucumber-tomato combo all week long is definitely not as appetizing to me either. I am here to tell you that salads don’t have to be bland, tasteless, and monotonous in terms of flavor.   Here are just some ways I spruce …
