    Sweet Potato Nachos with Hemp ‘Cheese’

    If you’ve been following this blog since the beginning, it’s probably become clear that I have a thing for orange vegetables (see here, here, here, and here). It probably also comes as no surprise that one of my favourite things in the world is ‘veganizing’ or putting a healthier spin on comfort food. Today, I combined my two passions into one plant-powerful nacho plate. Behold my mighty Sweet Potato Nachos! I don’t know what got into me this morning, but boy, I had a precise vision for how I wanted these nachos to turn out, and I am happy to say that I nailed them on my first attempt! You…

    Mayan Mocha

    Since starting Holistic Allie, I have wanted to do a weekly beverage recipe + a roundup of interesting media from around the web for you to enjoy during your weekend downtime. Let me know what you think and if you would like to see this style continue- I am thinking of making these posts a regular Saturday occurrence if you are interested!  I am a beverage aficionado. You can often find me sipping a kombucha, coffee, green drink, or one of my homemade creations at any given hour. What can I say? Girls gotta drink!  My favourite thing to do on lazy weekend mornings is to prepare a special warm…

    Double Chocolate Protein Bars

    Why buy protein bars when it takes ten minutes to whip up a batch in your own kitchen? These protein bars are packed with protein (obviously), healthy fat, complex carbs, and are lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup! The icing on the cake, so to speak, is the raw chocolate glaze. Made with just four ingredients (cacao butter, raw cacao, maple syrup, and almond milk), it propels these protein bars into “I can’t ever go back to store-bought” territory.  Well, we made it to Friday. If you have a Monday to Friday job, happy weekend! If, like me, you still find yourself working retail on weekends, I feel ya! Hopefully…

    Peanut Butter Cup Muffins

    Hi, friends! I feel as though it’s been a minute since I’ve posted here. When I started this blog, I thought that I would have time to post every. single. day. I have since been humbled by the amount of time and energy that goes into creating, testing, and photographing recipes while also working a full time job and marathon training! I’m not complaining or making excuses, just saying that I have a newfound appreciation for all those who juggle many life things at once!

    Fresh Town Smoothie with Hidden Greens + Plastic-Free July

    This smoothie will knock your socks off and wake you right up on a hot summer morning! Fresh mint and kale are hidden beneath a layer of chocolate, banana, and Medjool dates, creating a refreshing and sweet smoothie packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants!   Some things were made for each other. Peanut butter and jam. Cam and Mitch. (Veggie) Burgers and (sweet potato) fries. Apple and cheese. A kiss and a squeeze. To that list, I will happily add chocolate and mint. Ever since I was a young one and discovered the magic that is the Girl Guides chocolate mint cookies, I have been hooked. However, my preference now…

    Tropi-Kale Mojito Smoothie Bowls

    This tropical-inspired green smoothie bowl is bursting with the sweet summer flavours of mango and coconut, plus it’s packed with calcium, iron, folate, vitamin K1, vitamin A, and vitamin C thanks to the generous amount of kale blended in. The mojito aspect comes from the fresh mint. Mint is a carminative herb, meaning that it soothes the digestive tract and prevents gas and bloating. It also has cooling qualities, making this smoothie bowl the perfect heat wave meal. I added protein powder to my bowl to turn it into more of a meal, but you can certainly omit it if you are not a fan. You might want to add…

    Ravishing Rainbow Veggie Wraps (Vegan)

    Hello and happy long weekend to my Canadian friends! I couldn’t be happier to have three full days away from work: all the more time to create new recipes and fit in the first couple runs of my marathon training plan. I will eat almost any combination of foods wrapped up in a soft, floury tortilla. It’s the ultimate comfort food and oh so versatile. I have been known to eat some version of this wrap recipe several days in a row; I just never tire of it! There are so many flavours and textures at play here, and I have a feeling you are going to love it. Better…

    Pan-Fried Maple-Tamari-Sriracha Tofu

    This tofu is guaranteed to turn any tofu hater into a lover! Nobody can resist the sweet, salty, and mildly spicy flavour of this dish. It is also incredibly versatile, and works well as a filling in wraps, a topping for bowls, and on its own as a tasty, protein-rich snack! VEGAN Gluten-Free Servings: 4 Time: 30 minutes marinating + 15 minutes cooking 3 tbsp tamari 2 tbsp pure maple syrup 2 tbsp sriracha (I like Simply Natural brand organic sriracha) 1 block (350 g) extra firm organic tofu, diced into 1-inch cubes 1 tbsp virgin coconut oil Directions:  In a large bowl, whisk together tamari, maple syrup, and sriracha.…
