Coconut Mango Chicken Curry

I knoowwwwww it's summer and it's already hot enough outside, but this one's SO worth switching on the stove for, I promise. Recently I was talking to a new friend about what it was like when my family and I lived in the Middle East. Being a major foodie now, some of our first meals in [...]

Summer Stone Fruit Smoothie Bowl

One of the tips we've all heard when it comes to keeping our grocery spending under control is never to shop hungry or without a plan. I have to say that 9 times out of 10, I practice that. But sometimes I find myself needing to make a quick stop in at the grocery store [...]

Balsamic Peach and Quinoa Salad

I hope you like lots of COLOURSSSSSSSSS!!!!!! Today's post is a quickie because this has been one heck of a busy week so far. Yesterday marked the beginning of 29 for me, and the celebrations left me convinced that I know some of the most wonderful people in the world. Even though I worked on [...]

No-Bake Chocolate Hazelnut Protein Bites

Nutella lovers, this one's for you! There's been a ton of protein bite experimentation going on over here these days, and without fail, the ones my recipe testers rate the highest always have chocolate involved. (I can't imagine why? ?) While Nutella wasn't something that ever made its way into my house as a kid due [...]

Coconut Carrot Cake Protein Bites

Another super simple and oh-so-unbelievably-delicious protein bite recipe comin' atchaaaaaa. If you were to spend some time in my kitchen, you'd soon notice that veggies seldom go uneaten. Food waste is one of my biggest pet peeves, and having lived in a part of the world where extreme poverty is a very real problem, it's [...]

Mango Jerk Chicken Bowls

YUM is what you need to know about these little beauties - or big, I should say, because you'll get a hefty portion full of flavour, nutrition, deliciousness and LOVE. But first, a story. Since I started venturing into the world of cooking in my late teens, I've been fortunate to have experienced very few complete and utter [...]

Raspberry Cream Pie Smoothie

When my sister and I were growing up, one of our favourite things to do was visit my grandpa's house and pick raspberries in the backyard. We'd each be sent out with an empty ice cream bucket, instructed to 'pick dessert' for that evening. Following the one-for-the-bucket-one-for-the-mouth rule (because I've always been big on quality [...]

This year, that falls on August 11-13, and as is the case every year, I'm beyond pumped about it. Earlier [...]

Peaches and Greens Smoothie Bowl

When it comes to summer fruits, peaches have always been one of my favourites. My mum grew up in Windsor ON, so for most of my childhood summers, we flew from Edmonton AB (or our later home in the Middle East) to visit her family. With Essex County being a region known for peach production, [...]

West Coast Chopped Seafood Salad

Alternate title 1: A bowl full of my favourite things. Alternate title 2: What I'd like to eat for my last meal. For the salad course, anyway. Alternate title 3: The salad that your summer just won't be complete without. We're coming up on August, and this weekend I found myself reminiscing with a friend about [...]

10 ways to make healthy eating easier and more fun

Last week I talked about 7 steps for finding a fitness routine that works for you. One that makes you feel great, and one that you truly LOVE - not something you do out of obligation. As I discussed back then, fitness is just one component of overall wellness. There's so much more that goes [...]

Coconut Mango Matcha Green Smoothie

To all of my fellow early risers out there, let's be real: Sometimes, even the most dedicated morning people need a boost when it comes to finding energy in the early hours, right? Consider this smoothie a delicious liquid answer to that. I've been resisting hooking up my portable air conditioning unit for as long as [...]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Bites

While I was growing up, we didn't keep a whole lot of chocolate in our household. This wasn't because my parents were super healthy eaters, but because my mum is allergic to caffeine (and therefore chocolate) and nuts. There were two times of year however, where plenty of chocolate made its way in. These occasions [...]
