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

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.

Vegan “Egg Salad” Sandwich

I call this a vegan “egg salad” because the consistency is similar to that of an egg salad. Really, it is a chickpea salad. Whether you’re vegan or not, it is the perfect lunch on a hot day. Like an egg salad, you can add any of your favourite spices, diced onions, celery, etc. to…

My first personal pizza post here explains how to make them and suggests other options. A new pizza that I’ve been making is a broccoli alfredo. For this…

Super-Student Study Snacks

Apple Cinnamon Energy Bites

Surprise! More energy bites! Apple and Peanut butter are a killer combo, so, naturally, I was bound to make some kind of apple energy bite. The diced apple pieces give the bites a nice crunch that is missing in my previous recipes. As always, let me know what you think in the comments. If you…
