No-Bake Chocolate Chip Brownie Bites

Let's have some chocolate, shall we? This Thursday was National Brownie Day, and in the spirit of that celebration, plus the holiday season, I figured a little good-for-you sweet treat was in order. As I've said in the past, baking is not really my wheelhouse and as a result, I tend to stick to cooking instead. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
