    Pulled Sweet Potato Tacos with Green Hemp Cream and Kale

    Ready for a meal that’ll satisfy your comfort food needs in the depths of winter? These Pulled Sweet Potato Tacos with Green Hemp Cream and Kale seriously do the trick! A couple of these tacos and a few episodes of The Office (or your favourite feel-good TV show) spells out bliss on a chilly night. I’m happy to announce that I am emerging from a slump that began over the holidays. Something about the frenzy of it all- and we don’t even go all-out at Christmas- put the brakes on my creative flow. Now that routine is once again present, I can feel my energy increasing and the inspiration to come up…

    Coziest Cranberry Swirl Loaf

    As promised, here is my cranberry swirl loaf recipe! This quick bread is perfect as a holiday breakfast, snack, or dessert. It comes together in under 30 minutes, including the cranberry cooking time. The maple syrup flavour really shines through here, as does the unique nuttiness of the spelt flour. As it bakes, the cranberry swirl begins to crystallize on the top, creating a crispy exterior with a soft, chewy interior. Furthermore, this recipe takes advantage of a few of my favourite Canadian products: cranberries, pure maple syrup, and spelt flour! I am a bread/loaf lover through and through. Banana bread has its time and place, to be sure, but…

    Scrambled Egg Breakfast Wraps with Butternut Squash and Pesto

    Looking for a simple and healthy change-up to your everyday breakfast rotation? This recipe was born out of my desire to diversify my morning meal. As someone who has always tended towards sweeter breakfasts (toast with nut butter and honey or overnight oats with lots of fruit, nuts, and/or seeds have been staples for awhile now), I started craving something a little bit more savoury a couple of months ago.  Eggs are the natural first step into savoury breakfast territory, and although plain old eggs with toast (preferably avocado toast) are delicious in their own right, you can always trust me to remix a classic. Born out of my love…

    Mediterranean Broccoli and Chickpea Salad with Roasted Pepper and Feta

    This Mediterranean-inspired broccoli salad is bursting with flavour, texture, and colour! Broccoli is steamed until just tender and combined with roasted bell peppers and almonds, salty goat feta, sweet currants, and chickpeas! Then, everything is tossed in a tangy lemon-Dijon vinaigrette. This dish is great as a side or as a main dish when paired with a roasted sweet potato or quinoa.  Hey, friends! I’m baaaaack with a summery Mediterranean vegetable salad that covers all of the nutritional bases, and is super delicious to boot. I apologize for the prolonged absence, but hopefully now that I can feel the season turning ever so slightly, I will get back onto a…

    Tempeh Chorizo

    This tempeh chorizo is guaranteed to please vegans and omnivores alike! It’s intensely flavourful and can stand in for the “real thing” on pizza, breakfast burritos and sandwiches, quesadillas, salads, and more! Rich in complete protein and without a single processed ingredient, I can’t think of a healthier (or more delicious!) faux meat!

    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…
