Dark Chocolate Superfood Cups

Last week I posted this DIY 3-ingredient vegan dark chocolate, and juuuuuuust in case you thought, "well that's delicious, but what if I want to make it look a little more fancy?", THIS post is for you. With Christmas coming up and a few more treats around, I was in the mood to create something that [...]

Cinnamon Ginger Pear Smoothie

Lightly spiced, lower in sugar and packed with greens, this vegan-friendly Cinnamon Ginger Pear Smoothie is a perfect fit for fall or winter mornings. Since pears are a lighter-tasting fruit, I recommend using milder greens in this recipe. (You will probably find that curly kale and chard will make it taste a little too green!) [...]

Roasted Chicken Salad with Curried Yogurt Dressing

Let's talk about routines. I'm sure many of you, like me, are total creatures of habit. This can sometimes work to our detriment if always doing the same thing over and over again lands us in a rut that we just can't climb out of. On the other hand, routines definitely have their perks. We [...]

DIY 3-Ingredient Vegan Chocolate

Yes, I'll say it again. 3 ingredient vegan chocolate. Sounds too good to be true, right? Great news, because it's literally that simple. Chocoholics rejoice, and helloooooooo antioxidants! You may have observed in recent Sunday posts that I've been playing with a few sweet treats lately. While I don't have much of a sweet tooth, [...]

Fall Gratitude Quinoa Salad

Real talk: Last week was a rough one. What specifically was the reason? It was more like a culmination of little things. Working in corporate retail means that we're currently in the biggest quarter of the year - the one with the largest amount of work, the biggest demands, the highest revenue expectations and the [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
