Cauliflower FriedRice w/ TVP

Need protein?…then this bowl has got you covered! *That line takes me back to my lululemon days. Cauliflower FriedRice with TVP (textured vegetable protein), edamame, and broccoli rabe. This easy + quick high protein meal is seasoned with some of my faves…garlic, ginger, hoisin, *gf tamari, and jalapeƱos – just to name a few. Perfect…

Spring Minestrone Soup

Hot bowls of this Spring Minestrone Soup have been hitting the kitchen counter ALL lunchtime long this week. With its fresh flavours, mixed veg, and pop in your mouth adorable mini grape tomatoes, this soup has been a BIG hit. Topped off with a couple Crispy Tempeh MeatBalls + some walnut parm, and you’re left…

Zesty Cheddar Kale Chips

I could faceplant into this bowl:) While I was making the taco layer for my Seven Layered Dip, I thought how have I not rubbed this stuff ALL over kale?! I’ve made kale chips many times, but not once did I think to use my taco sauce recipe. SO, the result…simply the BEST. Once dried,…

Chocolate Chunk Oat Cookies

Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies! Was this anyone else’s favourite as a kid (still is)?!? That crisp exterior, chewy interior, and loads of melty chocolate chips. THE best. Today, I make these gems with dairy free chocolate chunks – love them. AND the salt…just present enough to make these cookies slightly addictive. Glass of cold (nut)…

Roasted CherryTomato Pesto

It’s (finally) SPRING! For me, Spring is all about simple sides like this Roasted CherryTomato Pesto. The warmer temps turn me into a cheerful content grazer rather than the better be BIG hungry beast winter weather seems to attract (cue Godzilla clip). The cold just makes me SO hangry?! It doesn’t get much easier than…

ChagaCino Protein Bars

ChagaCino Protein Bars – with just a hint of coffee (CappucCino). Has anyone tried Mushroom Coffee yet?? I was lucky enough to sip on a cup recently. Thanks @surferbaron! If you have a chance to try @foursigmatic coffee, DO IT. It was delicious & instant – perfect for those days when running out the door…

Butternut Squash Romesco Soup

I don’t know about you, but the hour change is hitting me HARD (…zzz). It’s simple meals like this Butternut Squash Romesco Soup that keep me nourished during my more spent days. I just LOVE sauces like romesco – packs on TON of flavour, good for DAYS, and SO versatile. I always have some sort…

Spiced Apple+Pecan Pancakes

International Pancake Day…whaaa, did I miss it?! Apparently yesterday was the BIG day, and seeing as I had planned to post pancakes on Friday anyways – I’m bumping it up to today to catch the tail-end of this classic breakfast wave. There were some really yummy looking stacks out there! Love it. Although mine aren’t…

StewedRaspberry Yam Brownies

StewedRaspberry Yam Brownies! I’ve heard about yam brownies here and there, and finally decided to give them ago putting my own spin on things. I always LOVE the idea of including fruits and/or veg in baked goods. Typically, when I think of brownies they’re fudgy, quite sweet, and rich. These brownies are a couple of…

Tomato Cream Masala Curry

The winter weather doesn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon. It’s FREEZING out, and I can’t help but hope all have a warm place to tuck away. For me, it’s with my pups nestled around the fire. This day, I happened to have a hearty bowl of Tomato Cream Masala Curry in hand. I…

WildBlueberry Oatmeal Bake Crumble

This one has got me HOOKED – no relation to the movie. WildBlueberry Oatmeal Bake Crumble. What a mouthful! BUT if I’m being honest, I could not stop filling my face with this oatmeal bake. It’s become a regular. Once I captured a decent pic (featured – good enough, right?), I could NOT wait to…

(Warm) Chickpea KaleCaesar Pitas

(Warm) Chickpea KaleCaesar Pitas – I have been craving one of these ALL week. SO good. They may look super simple (as they are to make), but they’re BIG on that delicious creamy caesar flavour. It actually freaked out my mom a little – she totally thought she was eating my dad’s famous caesar dressing,…
