Spiced GreenBeans

Long days like the ones during this long weekend call for some simple fresh eats. Rather than take off and escape to the lake, I’ve been spending every available moment getting caught up on some much needed yard maintenance. Next, the exterior of my house is receiving a total facelift – oy. To keep spirits…

Daikon Salad w/ Miso Dressing

THIS Daikon Salad is quickly making its way up our ‘favourites’ list. Perfect for summer (first tan lines of the year are here! but only on the back of my neck:(, this refreshing simple salad is one that has been on repeat in my house for the past few weeks. Simply dressed with a mouthwatering…

Double Chocolate Pumpkin Zucchini Bread

Double Chocolate Pumpkin Zucchini Bread – this loaf is moist, dense, and richly delicious. You’d never know it was oil-free! It also errs on the light side of sweet, so you won’t feel like you’re eating chocolate cake for breakfast…or will you;) I took a huge slab of this loaf with me on a road…

Tasty TVP Tacos w/ Smashed Avocado

Weekend Edition!…I’ve been M.I.A. this week, and have definitely NOT been setting a good example. Spring is getting the best of me (supes busy), and I’ve had to resort to copious amounts of flaxseed crackers, peanut butter, and watermelon to get me through the week. BUT if I’m being honest, I would have ate all…

Lemony BasmatiRice + Cumin Soup

Just one of those days soup is tasting REAL good!…brrr. This soup was inspired by one that my sister use to make except with potatoes. Seeing as we haven’t made it in years, and I don’t actually have a recipe for it – I forged this Lemony BasmatiRice + Cumin Soup from my memory bank$$$….

Roasted Edamame Salad

It’s no secret I LOVE my greens, especially topped with some coconut bacon – yum. BIG flavourful salads are my jam, and I could easily eat them for daysss. This Roasted Edamame Salad is the spitting image of Spring. Full of colour, refreshing yet filling, and you guessed it…simple. I don’t know about you all,…

Chewy Yam (Pup) Treats

Taking it easy on this perfect Earth Day! Pups are capping off their (extra) long Easter weekend with some of their faves – Dehydrated Yam. This is a favourite of mine too seeing as it’s one of the easiest ways to remain within the Top 3 on their ‘best human’ list. Not only is this…

Pumpkin Spice HotCross Buns

Did anyone else pick the dried fruit out of their HotCross Buns as a kid? Well, here is a version of our favourite festive bun I would have done my siblings household chores for just to get it on my plate! This bun is packed with pumpkin, spices, & a hint of dark rum. AND…

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…

GoldenBeet Chips + Garlicky Spinach Avocado Dip

Sunny days call for deck eats! We’re back in munch mode as the weather has warmed. A couple weeks back I got my hands on some rustic golden beets, so I decided some chips were in order + a side of one of our fave dips – Garlicky Spinach Avocado Dip (emphasis on GARLICKY i.e….

Spiced Apple Cake

As a kid, I had this love/hate relationship with apples. They were my parents quick solution to tide-over a hungry child. For the record, I was still hungry. My lunchbox always included the same – bologna sandwich (no, thank you – tradesies), a fruit rollup, and an apple. The apple was the ONE item I…

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…
