Video: Cooking with Kels – Healthy Pumpkin Cookies

Having healthy snacks is always a good idea (and I love snacks). These cookies are super customizable depending on your dietary needs (though you do have to like pumpkin to enjoy them). They are very soft cookies so that is also important to consider. Here’s the recipe: https://runningonrealfood.com/healthy-pumpkin-oat-cookies/

Enjoy the cookies and keep making the most of it!

Video: Cooking with Kels – Sweet Potato Bowls

I’ve been eating a lot more plant-based lately and it seems to be helpful fr my digestions, so I decided to share one of my favourite recipes with you. The recipe was also shared by my guest, Kathy A. Davis on my podcast. Listen to it here.

Until next time, keep making the most of it!

Video: Cooking with Kels – Chinese-style Vegetarian dish

This meal, with meat instead of a meat substitute, was a staple in my house growing up. I’ve modified it to fit my current dietary/nutritional restrictions and it’s just as good. It also shows that you can cook really delicious vegetarian/vegan meals. Make sure to speak with your healthcare team before making any drastic dietary changes. Check out this interview with Emily Marquis on how to make the changes once you’ve decided on them. Keep making the most of it!

Cooking with Kels: Fish Tacos

I’m always looking for healthy recipes, and I LOVE fish tacos. However, I hate that 99% of the time when you go out to get them, they’re deep fried. I have a favourite taco place in LA that doesn’t deep fry theirs, but I only get to LA every few years. As a result, I make my own. There is nothing fancy about this recipe, and it’s super customizable to your dietary needs (as long as you can eat fish)!.

Keep eating… I mean making the most of it!

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

Cooking with Kels: Healthy Breakfast Muffins

This week we’re baking up a storm with some very healthy muffins. These are great as a part of breakfast or on the go as a snack. They are chock full of fruits and vegetables. I personally use very little sugar, but you can adjust depending on your needs. For more information on healthy eating, I suggest listening to this podcast episode with Dr. Steph on the essentials of health, one of which is… you guessed it… nutrition and eating healthy!

Have a great week and keep making the most of it!

Cooking with Kels: Eggplant Parmesan

Okay, so this is the first time I’ve ever made Eggplant Parmesan yet alone use this particular recipe. You can find the recipe I used here. By the way, this ended up being pretty good. I’m kind of hit-and-miss with eggplant but I liked this. I mean anything with cheese on it is good! That being said you could use dairy free cheese to make it, well, dairy-free. You can basically modify as needed, which is what I do depending on what I have in my house. Remember that healthy eating and nutrition is essential to our health (as in the podcast episode with Dr. Steph, which you can find here).

Let me know what you think of the recipe, and keep making the most of it!

Cooking with Kels: Caesar Salad Dressing

This is a non-creamy Caesar salad dressing recipe handed down to me by my mom. It is my absolute favourite and is very simple (and healthy) to make. All it requires is olive oil, red wine vinegar, an egg yolk, one clove of garlic, and anchovies. Everything is shaken together in a mason jar or tupperware container! Eating healthy is an important part of health (you can check out the podcast episode on the Essentials of Health with Dr. Steph here). This recipe may put you out of your comfort zone a bit but it is definitely worth it.

And don’t forget to keep on making the most of it!

Cooking with Kels: Protein Pancakes

This episode has a special guest: my mom! She shares her recipe for protein pancakes, which are a healthy, filling way to have some pancakes. Personally, if I eat 3 of these, then I can totally skip lunch because I’m not hungry for at least 6-7 hours. My mom learned about protein pancakes from the pro golfer Phil Mickelson.

Nutrition is such an important part of keeping healthy, especially when you have a chronic illness. For more about the essentials of health, listen into this podcast episode with Dr. Steph!

Until next time, keep making the most of it!

Cooking with Kels: Cabbage Rolls

Okay, so this is my Baba’s amazing cabbage rolls recipe that has been verbally handed down over a few generations. This are traditional Ukrainian, vegetarian (rice, cabbage, onion, tomato soup) very small cabbage rolls that are full of flavour! I know a bunch of people who couldn’t go back to eating fat meat-filled cabbage rolls after trying these. If you want the full recipe, feel free to email me (janeversuspain@gmail.com) or DM me on Instagram (@janeversuspain).

Overall, this is a fairly healthy recipe, and nutrition is, of course, and essential of health. For more on that topic, check out my podcast episode on it. The link for Apple is below, but the podcast is available on Spotify and everywhere else you get podcasts as well. If you don’t mind submitting a review on Apple, I would also really appreciate it!
