CoconutSpinach Potatoes

CoconutSpinach Potatoes – AND some days just call for a bowl full of comfort! June is nearly at an end and you can count on one hand the sun filled days. I actually really enjoy the gloomy blustery ones. They’re SO moody – like mother nature is pushing back. It also makes curling up with…

Yam & SwissChard Quinoa Bake w/ Garlicky CashewCream

Yam & SwissChard Quinoa Bake with Garlicky CashewCream. Yep, I dug through my fridge, pulled out leftovers, and literally layered it into this super simple, high protein, baked goodness. And, you can never go wrong with CashewCream. The SwissChard was tender on the inside of the bake, and crispy on the outside – SwissChips…love it….

THE Thai Salad w/ PeanutGinger Dressing *Gluten Free

Eating alone…you ever have one of those meals where you actually prefer to eat alone? Maybe it’s a favourite one and you just want to enjoy it. That’s THIS Thai Salad, for me – shhh. My version includes a slightly spicy PeanutGinger Dressing with fresh Cilantro, pan seared Ginger & Maple glazed Tofu, Sesame Brown Rice…

Beyond Zucchini Mini Muffins *Plant Based + Gluten Free

I’m calling these lil’ fellas the Beyond Zucchini Mini Muffins. If you know me, then you know I like to mix things up! Why use just 1 veggie when you can use 3. Especially when there is SO much fresh organic produce available this season. They also happen to look totally rugged and rustic –…

Stuffed Roasted ButternutSquash

Roasted ButternutSquash stuffed w/ Creamy Broccoli & Hazelnuts – this is an adaptation of a recipe my sister first introduced to our family years ago…& we loved it! I think it was a Slovenian recipe shared through her husband’s family? Well, I loved it SO much that one of my recent cravings turned it into…

Creamy Dill, RoastedPotato & Arugula Salad

Summer is (unofficially) here…for a week – we’ll take it! AND what says summer more than potato salad!? In my youth, I was assigned the task of being the ‘potato fetcher’. I would jet down to our garden, snack on some sugar snap peas, and get digging. Potatoes are a fun one because, like root…

BeetCocoa & TrailBlazer Bars

I’m a total morning person. It’s when my productivity is at its peak…and well, so is my hunger. Before we hit the road to Vancouver, I enjoyed our mountain view one last time while downing some BeetCocoa & TrailBlazer Bars – they’re packed full of fibre, minerals, antioxidants, and other super foods. The only trails…

BeetCaramel & Jalapeno Popcorn

For me, card games and snacks go hand in hand. Here, BeetCaramel & Jalapeño Popcorn made the cut – the sweet with the spicy. Yum. We were wrapping up our day in Lytton and took to an old chest in our canvas cabin for a couple rounds of cards. I would have loved to take full…

Spicy BasmatiWild Rice Wraps & Herb Hummus

Such a perfect day! Our picnic was complete with the tasty combo of Spicy BasmatiWild Rice Wraps & Herb Hummus. This hummus tends to disappear faster than a glass of ice-cold water on a hot day. AND that wrap…yum – full of flavour & healthy carbs that will keep you going for days. Just behind the…

Propane Lanterns, WildFlowers, & 300ft Drops

RoadTrip! I’ve been somewhat off the grid & unplugged over the past week. Think propane lanterns, wild flowers, and 300ft drops. Why? It seems I had to disconnect in order to reconnect. Not planned, just divine intervention at work I guess. Within a couple hours of my arrival at our first destination, my phone met…

The Greens + Seeds w/ Goat Cheese

Salad! Prior to Instagram, I never thought much about how my food looked – the people I feed just care that it tastes good. For me, it was nutrition (& of course, taste). Now, naming food…never really thought much about it either. SO, if you have any suggestions, ever, please feel free. I would love…

CampingToast + AvocadoHazelnut Chocolate Cream

You had to see this one coming! You bet, I HAD to put that AvocadoHazelnut Chocolate Cream on CampingToast. YUM. It almost doesn’t seem fair to have something taste that good, be that simple, and GOOD of you! You know the expression “you could wear a potato sack and still look good”. Well, you could…
