Vanilla Pumpkin Spice Green Smoothie

If you're anything like me, you've probably been eating tons of root veggies, squash and all sorts of lovely fall produce lately. It seems to be around US Thanksgiving that everything on Pinterest switches from being all-pumpkin-all-the-time, to gingerbread and eggnog-flavoured treats. So with that in mind, I wanted to squeak just oooooooone more pumpkin [...]

Tandoori Chicken Drumsticks with Mango Chutney

Back in the day when my family lived in Edmonton, my dad would often travel for business. My mum has never loved cooking and my dad was always the more keen chef, so when he was away, we knew it was more likely that we might get to go to a fast food restaurant for [...]

Mini Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

After having realized how easy it was to make these Pumpkin Pie Spice Almond Butter Cups a couple of weeks ago, I couldn't resist going for round 2, only this time, testing a more traditional peanut butter cup. You know how some foods are just really reminiscent of your childhood? Reese's peanut butter cups were one [...]

Crispy Harissa Chickpea Power Bowls

This summer I went to Boston for a work conference, and as is always the case when I travel to the US, I made a point of taking a trip to Whole Foods. There were two reasons for this. The first was to stock my hotel mini fridge with some healthy eats for the couple [...]

Skin-Nourishing Collagen Pumpkin Spice Latte

Yep, still eating pumpkin things over here. Back when I was in university, I had a Starbucks credit card. I chose it because it allowed me to collect Starbucks credit every time I purchased anything - groceries, clothes, etc. I used this card all the time, and as a result, don't think I ever had [...]

Roasted Root Vegetable + Quinoa Bowls with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Get ready for a cozy bowl of warm, roasted-to-perfection goodness. Call me crazy, but roasted vegetables are my comfort food. Roasted Brussels sprouts, pumpkin, squash, cauliflower, beets - any and all of them - I don't discriminate. I'll spend a long day at work, walk out to my car sometime after 5 (probably in the [...]

6-Ingredient Matcha Mint Dark Chocolate Cups

Halloween is on Tuesday, so let's celebrate with a chocolatey treat, shall we? I've been testing a LOT of nut-free sweet treats lately - some successful, and some very much not! The reason behind it all is that one of my lunch customers at work has a severe nut allergy, and she can't eat sunflower [...]

Chickpea-Free Hummus, 3 Ways

If your Instagram feed is full of foodies, you've probably noticed that crudite platters, cheese plates and other intricate displays of gorgeous bite-sized morsels are having a big moment. Veggies, hummus, crispbreads, nuts, seeds, fruit, avocado roses - I'm totally into all of it, and obviously it was only a matter of time before I [...]

Pumpkin Pie Spice Trail Mix Bars

You guys aren't tired of pumpkin yet, right? Good. Because I can't finish off the month of October without sharing these no-bake Pumpkin Pie Spice Trail Mix Bars. That's right - no bake, minimal effort, stir-it-all-together-in-a-bowl-and-smush-it-in-a-dish-to-chill minimal effort. Which pretty much means they're a must-make, right? When it comes to bars, I like mine to [...]

Thai Sweet Chilli Chicken Noodle Bowls

I hope you've been practicing your Lady and the Tramp noodle slurping skills. I'm not talking veggie noodles this time either - even though you guys know I love me some zoodles. I'm talking saucy, sweet chilli-coated, don't-let-me-hit-the-bottom-of-the-bowl soba noodles that are kinda like takeout but a bazillion times better. Catch my drift? In my [...]

3 water infusions to make staying hydrated more delicious

This post is sponsored by Dopper. Let’s talk hydration. Specifically, staying hydrated when it’s cold outside and the last thing you feel like doing is drinking water – or at least that’s how I feel when I’m cold. As someone who loves high sweat activities, hydration during training and races is a topic that’s often [...]

Fall Harvest Smoothie Bowl

It may be cooling down outside, but that's no reason to put the brakes on your green smoothie habit. Even though I'm 100% a warm weather-loving gal, the thing I really DO appreciate about fall is all of the amazing fresh seasonal produce. Anyone else with me? Pumpkin, pears, apples, carrots, and more squash varieties [...]

Tuscan Bean and Quinoa Salad

Blood, sweat and tears went into my dinner on Monday night. For real. Picture this: It's the last day of the Thanksgiving long weekend. I get home from a coffee date with a friend, toss my keys on the counter, take of my shoes, change into my PJs (#priorities), and open the fridge to figure [...]

No-Bake Maple Pecan Cookie Dough Protein Bites

You say pe-cahhhn, I say peeee-can. It doesn't really matter how you say it, because your mouth will be too full of these little morsels of goodness to speak. Fall always reminds me of the holiday cookie baking memories of my childhood, and in our house, I was definitely guilty of smuggling cookie dough out [...]
