I’m sure you all have tried thousand island dressing before, but maybe what you didn’t know is that it’s super simple to make at home! This recipe makes 2 1/2 cups and can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 weeks.


  • 1 1/2 Cups Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Cup Organic Ketchup
  • 1 tsp organic Mustard
  • 4-5 Slices of pickles

Mix all ingredients in a food-processor until the pickles are finely chopped. Salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately or store cooled.


Healthy Veggie Wrap

IMG_97577This wrap is great for breakfast, lunch and dinner! :) It’s healthy and really low in calories and fat. It’s great as a pure veggie wrap, you can also add some fish, chicken, black beans or even some chickpeas.

It’s important to choose a whole wheat tortilla because the white ones hardly have any nutritional value at all.


  • Red, green or yellow Bell Peppers
  • Red Onion
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Lollo Rosso Lettuce
  • Rucola Lettuce (Arugula)
  • Cucumber
  • Tomato


1. Place the tortilla on a plate and add the Romaine, Lollo Rosso and Rucula Lettuce on top of each other.

2. Cut the remaining vegetables in chunks or however you want it, and place on top.

3. Then you add the chicken, fish, beans or peas on top and enjoy.


You Can Also Add:

  • Add some Tabasco sauce or chili peppers if you’d like it a bit spicy.
  • Avocado Hummus is also great with this
  • Low fat dressing (read the label and make sure it’s actually low in fat)
  • Add some red grapes or sweet corn for some sweetness
  • Basically anything can go with this wrap, make it your own with your favorite vegetables

How to make the chicken:

This is how I make my low fat chicken.

You’ll need:

  • Fresh chicken breast
  • Vegetable Stock (from the store or make your own, recipe coming soon)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Cut the chicken breast in half (split it in the middle to make two thin slices). Boil enough water so it will cover the chicken breasts. Add the vegetable stock, then place the chicken in the boiling water for about 15 minutes. You can add the salt and pepper before or after, whatever you prefer.

When the chicken is done, drain the water. Let the chicken cool and cut into chunks. Enjoy :)


Healthy Tuna Salad

This salad goes well as a topping for Crispbread or just as a lunch. :)



  • 1 Cup Canned Tuna
  • 3 Cherry Tomato
  • 1/4 Avocado
  • 1/4 Red Onion
  • 1/2 Small Bell Pepper (whatever color you prefer)
  • 10 Slices of Cucumber
  • 1 Cup Chinese Cabbage
  • Garlic Salt

Cut all the ingredients into small cubes and mix well, adding the tuna last. Sprinkle some Garlic Salt as desired. Enjoy.
