So remember that easy peasy sweet potato fries recipe from the other day? Well I knew I couldn’t leave you guys hanging so I’m delivering the goods on the other half of the recipe – the bang bang chicken and dipping sauce!
I’ve been absolutely loving the meals we get from Fia’s Fresh Meals lately. Out of all the pre-prepared microwavable meals I’ve tried in the past, they really are a cut above the rest! Not just because their vacuum-packed containers keep their meals super fresh, but the ingredients and the variety of delicious meals is of seriously superior quality. From BBQ chicken pizza to butternut squash lasagna and burritos, they’re menu is crowd pleaser!
It might be true that no good story ever started with someone eating a salad, but just because salad stories might be boring, that doesn’t mean that they have to taste that way! We’ve been taking a lot lately about how to maintain and quantify that 80/20 balance with your nutrition. We’re 100% on board with the savvy advice from our friend EC at Optimized Nutrition, that 800g a day of fruit and veg is a good target for most adults to shoot for – some may need more, some a little less depending on your overall caloric intake.
Aubergine or eggplant, call it what you like, happens to be a favorite vegetable of mine. In it’s raw form is it pretty bland, but once grilled or pan-fried its flavor is magically transformed! Eggplant is incredibly popular in European and Middle Eastern cooking, most typically used in casseroles like this delicious moussaka!
Making “rice” substitutes out of vegetables is all the rage right now! Not only is it a great way to get your veggies in and keep your carb macros in check, but it makes your meals that much more satisfying as you can invariably have a whole lot more! At least I know that whenever I measure out a portion of rice it always looks depressingly small in respect to its carb content.

OMG these pancakes are literally to die for! 😍 They remind me of the epic pancakes I had in Vancouver at a cute little spot in Cambie called Jam Café. I remember having a hard time guesstimating the macros for that brunch – I damn near had a heart attack when they brought out my 2-inch-thick pancake stack the size of a dinner plate! Given that I was unable to eat anything for the rest of day I’d say those bad boys were not quite as macro-friendly as these!
This super simple dinner is perfect for you when want to impress but have zero time! It’s also a personal go-to for when I’m hoarding my carbs and fat for dessert – perfect timing for all those Easter eggs I’ll be devouring! 😜
People who know me well enough, will
know that breakfast foods are my favorite type of food! I could eat pancakes, French
