Bean Pancakes

If you’re the kind of person that doesn’t really like to eat a lot of meat, like me,beans and lentils are great because they contain a lot of iron, potassium, zinc and protein. They are also a lot cheaper than meat, so I try to include them in my diet as often as I can and prepare them in various ways.
This kinda is an african dish. Obviously they have herbs and spices over there that are rather hard to get here, so I substituted most of them. You can really flavour them according to your own preferences.

Classic Strawberry Cake

Another one of my fathers favourite cakes, my Mom always used to do this for his birthday. This actually is quite healthy for a cake. There is almost no fat and lots of fruit, if you take whole grain flour it becomes even better. Of course it still contains lots of carbs, but hey it’s a cake.
You don’t have to use strawberries of course, you could also use green apples or kiwis with green jello or bananas and mangos with yellow jello ,just have fun with it

Carrot – Ginger Noodles with Pea Pesto

I just got back from volunteering in Africa with a lot of great recipes. This one is not very African though, I just made it because I was craving something healthy. Super cheap and super healthy dish

Bean Taco Filling

I tried something different here and it worked out quite well. The filling itself also doesn’t have any weight watchers points, which makes it a great low-fat alternative to meat

Rosemary Potatoes


That’s how I like to do rosemary potatoes. Super simple to make and always turns out well. It’s not only very healthy but also rather cheap. With less than one 1 € , only a couple of cents for the dried rosemary and less than 1 € for the fresh one, it’s a great low-budget meal. Great Weight Watchers dish too, serve with vegetable and you’ll get a tasty low point, meal.

Scrambled Tofu – Cheddar & Red Pepper

I usually make scrambled tofu spontaneously with whatever I have around but I liked this so much, that I want to do it again

Nordic Berry Muffins

Those are definitely a bit more “edgy” than the average muffin, so give it a try. They are less sweet but the cloves give them a very unique taste and I love it. On top of that they are also vegan and more healthy than the average muffin.
This probably isn’t a Scandinavian recipe, but I thought it tastes kinda nordic, so I put it into that category

Alaska Backpack Bread

The upsides of this bread are that it can be stored fairly long and is very nutritious. It’s a bit sweet but not so sweet that it would be weird to eat cheese of meat on it.And of course that it’s delicious and very fluffy

Aubergine – Tomato Pasta

I had this for diner last night and I thought it was great. If you want to safe weight watchers points leave out cheese and substitute dried tomatoes with more cherry tomatoes.

Free Youtube Workout plan


I’m currently doing P90X and so far I’m kinda disappointed with it. It’s just a lot less extreme than I expected. But if there is one thing I learned its that with all the great advice online you don’t need to spend a lot of money to get a good workout at home.
Before I started P90X I just used to make myself a plan with youtube videos, that I repeated twice or thrice and I honestly thought my plan was a bit more extreme than p90X. So I just thought why not put some of them online.

Pasta Primavera


I’ve done this for a party and it was a great success. This recipe gives a huge portion though, so needless to say if you’re only cooking for a small group, make a smaller potion. It makes a very good party dish though because you don’t need to it serve hot, lukewarm or cold will also do, and you can store it in the fridge overnight.

Ice Cream Caipirinha

This is such a great and easy to make summer drink. I’m not sure if this is a traditional brazilian recipe but at least my friend Lisa who spend a year abroad in Brazil, back in grade 11, said her host parents often did this

Strawberry – Chilli Spring Rolls with Lemon Mascarpone dip

I had this for dinner but as I made very small spring rolls, they would have been great as snack or for some kind of Buffet too. I’m not quite sure how many WW points the dough has, but the filling doesn’t have any at all. For a more WW friendly dip simply replace mascarpone with yoghurt or quark.

Strawberry – Kiwi Smoothie

Strawberries were on sale this week, so I bought 3 lb of them. I also made delicious Strawberry – Chilli Spring Rolls out of them. The recipe will follow tomorrow.
This is a fairly thin smoothie but still pretty good. With 0 Weight Watchers points it’s also very healthy and contains not too many calories.

Egg Tuna Salad


Pretty cool high protein dish. I made this for BBQ party and it was quite a success. It’s not super healthy, but won’t ruin your diet either.

Mixing your own Muesli – Summer Muesli and Protein Muesli

I just recently ran over some websites that offer you to mix your own muesli online and they’ll send it to you in less than a week. I certainly liked the idea. Afterall I often bought muesli that I thought was perfect, if only it didn’t contain raisins, bananas or whatever.
So I went online and created my own Muesli at http://www.mymuesli.com but didn’t order because it costs 11,60€ per lb. That’s insane and I thought I can do this way better and way cheaper at home.

Coconut Treats

Those are just delicious. Full of sugar but still delicious.
unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of mine but I found one on the internet that looked exactly like mine, although they used quite a different (and more healthy recipe)

Apple Fritters

I just finished my first week working at Burger King and I absolutely hate it. Can’t wait until summer is over. The amounts of waste only this one store produces is insane. And the food is flabby and gross. I believe I’ll never feel the urge to eat fast food again.
So anyways I decided I should make a couple of “healthy fast food recipes” starting with this one. It’s not really fast to prepare but tastes like (good) fast foo while still being quite healthy.

Ćevapi on greek Salad

I believe Ćevapi is traditional Bulgarian dish, at least it has its origins in the Balkan area, so I will need to make a new category for that. Usually it’s eaten with rice, potatoes or flat bread, but I tried a lighter version here by eating it with salad

Gorgonzola Dressing

Dressing are often full of fat and so is this one. I didn’t use any oil but the gorgonzola itself is quite fattening.It’s still a lot healthier than the ones you can buy though and doesn’t take too much time to prepare.

Breakfast ideas


People often say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. You will be able concentrate or work better during the day, if eat a healthy breakfast. As the title suggest this is more of a set of ideas than actual recipes.

Green Mango Smoothie


I love this, it’s refreshing and low on calories, while it still tastes amazing. It certainly has a freakish color too.

Banana Casserole

I’m not sure if Casserole is the right term here. I came up with this when I had already spend most of my WW points on potato tortilla dinner but still desperately wanted dessert.
I know mixing potatoes and bananas seems a bit weird at first, my family thought so too, but they all liked it in the end.

Beetroot Risotto

Just another version of the basic risotto recipe. Has a nice color and tastes a bit sweeter.

Mixed Berry Smoothie

Smoothies are good for really everything. Breakfast, Lunch, Dessert or just in between they’re always great. This recipe is nothing special just a basic berry smoothie, as I always do them.
It’s quite heavy for a smoothie so definitely more suitable as full breakfast or lunch.
For Weight Watchers, my Smoothies had 3 points (1 for yoghurt, 1 for milk and 1 for beetroot juice) and I made 2 servings out of it. If you want to add oatmeal and raisins you will be roughly at 6 points

Summer Pudding


This was the first time I ever made any kind of pudding. I think it turned out quite well, but was a bit below average when it comes the appearance. It tastes amazing though, so give it a try.

Honey – Mustard mashed Sweet Potatoes


I’m not quite sure of weight watchers policy with sweet potatoes, but apart from the potatoes, the dish barley contains any other points. Serve with vegetables of choice and maybe some meat or tofu and you get a great low points dinner
