Warm Gingerbread Breakfast Ideas

The holidays have long passed and I find that by the time February rolls around I am so done with winter. From hat hair to frozen pipes, I am more than willing to hop on a plane and wave goodbye to this winter wonderland. Wouldn’t that be nice… When life gives you lemons, what do you…

Tofu Scramble

I’m a firm believer that those who claim that they don’t like tofu, just haven’t found the right recipe. One of my favourite breakfasts on Sunday mornings is this tofu scramble. It tastes just like scrambled eggs, and is super easy and quick to make, which makes it perfect to serve for brunch to a…

Classic Mulled Wine Recipe

What better way to end a cold winter day than a warm boozy beverage with your best friends? Of course, you can’t go wrong with Bailey’s and hot chocolate on a cozy girls night in, but mulled wine just sounds that much more sophisicated; especially for a couple of 21 year olds living in a student…

Soft Gingersnap Cookies

Gingersnaps have never been my family’s favourite, but, this year, they were on my winter baking bucket list. They’re a classic cookie and I can’t believe I’ve never made them before! The holidays bring so much joy and gratitude into my life, but the following days are difficult. Cleaning the house and taking down decorations,…

Vegan Pumpkin Lasagna

Technically, it’s still fall, which means it is acceptable to incorporate pumpkin into every meal. This vegan pumpkin lasagna is super easy and a nice variation from the typical lasagna dish. I can’t take credit for the recipe though; that goes to Liv B. Her YouTube channel is my go-to for meal inspiration. Serve this…

One Ingredient Sweet Potato Topper

I LOVE sweet potatoes. No doubt, they are the perfect side dish. Potatoes in general can be made in so many different ways that it is scientifically (I use that term loosely) impossible to tire of them. In the autumn and winter months, sweet potatoes sometimes become a go-to snack. A baked sweet potato topped…

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte (Vegan)

I’m surprised that all the Canadian vegans have not petitioned for Starbucks to make it’s pumpkin spice latte vegan-friendly yet. Seriously, c’mon Starbs… Even though prime PSL season is over, I still like to treat myself to a homemade pumpkin spice latte on lazy mornings. Heck, I will probably be treating myself to these year…

Vegan “Nice Cream” Recipes

I know it’s fall, but is there ever really a bad time for ice-cream? Often referred to as “nice cream”, blended bananas are a much cheaper alternative to a pint of vegan-friendly ice-cream. I was skeptical at first, but as soon as I tried it, I was hooked. More often than I’d like to admit,…

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Quesadilla

Quesadillas are so easy to make and, filled with sweet potato and black beans, this one is the perfect lunch for fall time! Ingredients: Mashed sweet potato Black beans Tomato Garlic Cumin Shredded cheese (I didn’t put it in mine, but it would have made it SO much better) I started by peeling, boiling, and…

Fruity Chia Pudding Recipes

Chia pudding is a great nutritious breakfast or dessert option. Two tablespoons of the tiny seeds provide an immense amount of vitamins and nutrients, including omega-3 fats, protein, fibre, and calcium! Since the seeds themselves have no flavour, the chia pudding recipes are endless. Here is the base recipe: 2 TBSP chia seeds 1/2 cup…

Smoothies for Every Occasion

Smoothies are a great way to get good foods into your body on the busiest of days. They are a go-to breakfast for me when I’ve overslept. Although great in the morning, they can, and should, be enjoyed at all times of the day. Here are three different smoothies recipes for three different occasions (but…

Bounce Ball Review

Bounce is an Australian company that makes a unique variation of a protein bar: a protein ball! They make their classic protein energy balls, which I am reviewing, as well as vegan balls and bites. The first thing that I noticed about the Bounce balls is that their shape, while fun, makes the bar quite…
