RICOTTA & SPINACH TRIANGLES

I decided to combine a few recipes of spanakopita and replace feta by ricotta cheese (which is more rich in protein) and created this very simple & healthy snack. Here is what I used to make about 10 triangles: Boiled half a package of fresh spinach (about 150 grams) for 10 seconds Ricotta cheese (about 150 grams) 1 egg Salt & pepper Phyllo pastry – cut out each sheet in 3 strips & used double strips for each triangle Mixed spinach, ricotta, egg, salt & pepper together & stuffed each of the double strips & rolled them into triangles – Baked for 15…

MINT JUMPER

It snowed again this weekend & this time I decided to embrace the storm! We went skiing to Bromont on Saturday & the conditions were just amazing – the snow was perfect & it wasn’t too cold – just an overall perfect Saturday :) At the same time, I am not giving up on the Spring fashions. It’s Monday and here is what I am wearing: a mint green jumper. I wore it with beige studded booties outside & switched to these gorgeous Jessica Simpson pumps at the office. I love a relaxed look with a heel – it’s comfortable,…

POP OF YELLOW

Yesterday was the 1st official day of Spring, but I think someone forgot to notify mother nature! I don’t know about you ladies, but the summer needs to be extra hot & sunny to make up for this. It’s been a cold & snowy winter & I am ready for it to be over ( I think I speak for all Montrealers when I say this). I wore this yellow blazer regardless of the weather to brighten up this gloomy day. Although, knowing that it’s Friday helps as well :) Happy Friday!!!

WHITE BLAZER

Although it’s still very much winter in Montreal, I decided that I am going to start wearing Spring clothes. Maybe this will entice mother nature to bring warmer temperature & melt all this snow! I found this perfect white blazer that’s both classy and very comfortable. I could not wait to wear it, so I decided that it will be my outfit today at work. Obviously I will be wearing boots outside, but will switch to these ankle strap sandals in the office. I love this look, do you girls like it too? Blazer – Dynamite Jeans – Zara Top –…

DIETS DON’T WORK – EAT HEALTHY

  I came across this article on the Nautilus blog & I really would like to share it with you ladies. ‘Diets’ don’t work – it’s the simple truth. What works is eating right & exercising regularly.
