Healthy Eats

Here are some healthy (or relatively healthy) meals that I have been eating lately. Enjoy!

Baked falafel with tzatziki sauce (garlic, cucumber, dill, lemon juice and plain-unsweetened soy yogurt), all made from scratch. The falafel was good, but I think that the deep fried, traditionally made, falafel tastes million times better :-) Falafel is usually served with some tahini sauce, but I like this refreshing Greek sauce better.

Brown rice with roasted chickpeas, Garlicky Cheezy Kale , and steamed broccolini.

Mashed potatoes with mashed Brussels sprouts blended together, and served with roasted chickpeas.

My first ever spinach strawberry salad with poppyseed dressing. The poppyseed dressing was creamy, but it was too rich for me.

Warm mashed polenta (homemade for the first time) with steamed chopped greens.

Brown rice spaghetti with homemade tomato and chickpeas sauce.


  1. Everything looks great! I'm with you on the fried falafel tasting better, but I don't enjoy doing that myself and baked isn't too bad :)
    I really like the polenta dish with greens. Simple, tasty stuff.

    1. Thanks :-) I did not use to like polenta because I bought a plain, unflavored one and it was horrible. Few weeks ago I learned how to make a flavorful polenta from scratch at a restaurant that I volunteer at. I tasted it and liked it so I made a batch at home. The falafel was a bit dry when baked, I will add some extra oil to it next time I make it.

  2. Looks like some great meals! Now make some cake! :)

    1. Vic, you are funny! I don't even remember when I baked any cake or brownies last time.... I need to bake something sweet again soon :-)
