Rosemary Rainbow Carrot and Lentil Salad

It's post-Thanksgiving both north and south of the border now, and - oh wait - it's also December! Not long now folks - you've got 23 days until Christmas and I'd expect you're probably attending at least a few holiday parties over the next couple of weeks... am I right? If that's the case, perhaps you're [...]

Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette

Remember when Brussels sprouts were the vegetable that nobody except your grandma liked? I think it's safe to say that the B-sprout is having a moment - or perhaps even a decade. Every fall I go absolutely nuts for Brussels sprouts, roasting enough baking trays of the balsamic-coated little gems as I possibly can. You [...]

Mango Curried Cucumber Noodle Salad

Over the weekend I flew to Calgary for the wedding of one of my childhood besties. It was a quick trip, only a 1-hour flight, and all the celebrations were a ton of fun. On Sunday morning my mum and I were up at 6 and on our way to the airport to catch our flights [...]

Tuna and Quinoa Tabbouleh

Happy humpday! Today’s actually more like a Thursday for me because tomorrow I’ll be jet setting alllll the way over to Calgary. 1 hour flight = totally not jet setting, but let’s pretend. It’s been over 5 years since I last visited my home province of Alberta, and about 10 since my last trip to [...]

Curried Rice, Chicken and Apple Salad

Originally published September 2015, updated September 2017. Let's talk about lunch. Back in the day when I was a little kiddie, my mum had my sister and I packing our own school lunches. This was an activity we had to do each evening, not in the morning before dashing out the door, or else we risked losing [...]

Goji Kale Slaw

You know when you come back from vacation and your kitchen feels a bit like foreign territory because you haven't cooked a meal in it for so long? That's sort of how I felt when I woke up on Monday morning. Normally my cutting board and favourite knife barely have time to try before their [...]

Broccoli Pecan Salad

How do you turn broccoli haters into broccoli lovers? You could puree, pulse, or otherwise pulverize it into unrecognizable smithereens and hide it in some sort of mysterious casserole or soup. But casseroles and soups are for fall, and it is absolutely 100% NOT fall yet. To the lady I overheard the other day talking [...]

Blueberry and Greens Salad with Mahi Mahi

Hey there! How's your day going? I have to admit, all the training I did last week and over the weekend left me waking up feeling less than fabulous on Monday. You know when you wish you could have another weekend to recover from the weekend? Yeah, it was one of those Mondays. It wasn't that my [...]

Power Greens Tuna Salad

Hey friends! How's your week going? Mine has been lovely so far - busy with work, but training is ramping back up after an easy-ish post-race week, and call me masochistic but I really do love the grit, the sweat, and the hard work! I think most self-labeled endurance athletes would probably say something similar. [...]

Peaches and Greens Salad

I don't know about where you are, but it's been très chaud here in Vancouver. After a lunch date with a friend this weekend, I walked back to my car and upon putting my key in the ignition, saw a '37 C' staring back at me. (It wasn't really that hot - within a few minutes it [...]

Summertime Quinoa and Greens Salad

There's way more to this week's recipe than just quinoa and greens, but I'll tell you all about it in just a second. First, picture yourself melting into a warm cushioned lounge chair in the most beautiful, spa-like backyard you've ever seen. The sun is soaking into your skin, but there's just the right amount of breeze [...]

Edamame and Cucumber Noodle Salad with Creamy Ginger Dressing

Hey there friends! How's your week going? I got back from my cousin's wedding in Michigan late Tuesday night, and it was so much fun catching up with my mum, sister and extended family. The ceremony was gorgeous, the reception was a ton of fun, and the food was awesome. This was actually the first [...]

Rainbow Kale Slaw with Miso Tahini Dressing

Originally published May 2015, updated September 2017. As you can tell from the title of this post, kale slaw is on the menu today. But it's not just any kale salad. After Monday's 20 spring salad recipes, I wanted to bring you a brand new one that will totally knock your socks off - even if you've never [...]

Clean Eating Inspiration: 20 Salad Recipes for Spring

It's spring, and I'm not sure about you but the warmer weather has certainly got me craving more raw fruits and veggies these days. I was allllll about the roasted veggies throughout the winter, and while I still would never turn down a big bowl of roasted cauliflower (or a whole head for that matter!) my [...]
