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 [...]

Chocolate Macaroon Smoothie

Chocolate. Coconut. Can you really go wrong with that combo? I don't think so. The weather's cooling off (at least here in Vancouver it is) so these days I'm into the less-fruity, more chocolatey smoothies. I've got a post coming up in a couple of weeks about ways to winterize your smoothies, but until then, [...]

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 [...]

Slow Cooker Lemon Herb Chicken and Vegetables

Guys. This will go down as a groundbreaking moment in history. I bought a slow cooker. Swooooooooooon. Isn't she a beauty? I like to consider myself a fairly early adopter of new technology. I mean, not finger-on-the-pulse-before-it-beats sort of early, but aside from installing my iPhone’s software updates, I tend to be on top of these [...]

Pumpkin Pie Spice Almond Butter Cups

Ohhhhh yessssss. Pumpkin pie spice, almond butter, AND chocolate. Guys, this is a recipe not to be missed.   It's October, which means Halloween is coming. Back when I was a kiddie, my sister and I would sort our trick-or-treating candy together on our living room floor, snack-sized packages sprawled out and covering the entire [...]

Pear and Pecan Wild Rice Salad

​This post is sponsored by iHerb. I’m baaaaack! Did you miss me? 😉 I hope you guys enjoyed getting to know Emma, Mandy and Davida in the last three guest posts. They're pretty awesome gals, don't ya think? My brain and body are a little on the confused side today since I'm trying to adjust back [...]

Low Sugar Key Lime Pie Green Smoothie

It seems like no matter what diet book, celebrity nutritionist or wellness plan you look at, everyone's got a go-to smoothie recipe that they swear by. If you've been hanging around here for any length of time, you'll know I'm a big fan and when asked about my favourite, I'm not sure I could pick [...]
