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…

Flavoured Coffee

As an avid coffee drinker, I understand how important it is to have a good cup of java first thing in the morning. I do love trying flavoured coffees though. They are wonderful for the afternoon cup, or even just to change it up. You can flavour your own, regular coffee grounds at home. It’s…

Overnight Oats

Now that the mornings are warmer, my usual breakfast has transformed from a warm bowl of oats to overnight oats. They are just as easy to make and takes even less time! It’s also great to take on-the-go, which is perfect if you’re prone to hitting snooze one too many times. All you need to do is…

Simple Banana Bread

I love banana bread. I always have an abundance of overripe bananas in my freezer, and it’s the perfect family recipe; it’s great for breakfast, snack and dessert! Personally, I think everyone should have a good banana bread recipe in their back pocket. I wish I could say, I came up with this recipe. I…

Personal Pizzas: Broccoli Alfredo

Personal pizzas are one of my favourite dinners to make. They’re ready in no time and, as the name suggests, can be personalized to suit any person. 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

Almonds Almonds are one of my go-to superfoods. Full of healthy fats, protein, vitamins and fibre, they are a great snack to power through an intense study sesh. Just one handful, can benefit a person’s blood pressure, blood sugar, and choleseral levels. Dark Chocolate Dark chocolate with a high cocoa percentage can provide a world…

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…

Ensure Recipes

After leaving the hospital 9 pounds heavier on December 6, I was under a strict meal plan to ensure (haha, get it?) that I didn’t lose the weight that I put on. Unfortunately for me, that meant an Ensure (or any other high protein, high cal supplement drink) with every meal. Now, in a specialized…

Personal Pizzas

If there is one universal truth in this world it is this; pizza is always good. I learned this when I was home from school for a weekend months ago and eager to show off my new cooking capabilities. I made personal pizzas from scratch for my family and instantly became the favoured child (don’t…

Rice Cake Rapture Pt. 2

Plain rice cakes remain a staple in my diet. I have an embarrassing amount of fun coming up with new ways to top them. If you’ve read my previous post about rice cakes, you would know how strongly I feel about my rice cakes, and if you haven’t, then you should read it here. Below…

A Passion for Porridge (Pt. 3)

Shocker! It’s another post about oatmeal recipes! I’m not sure what more needs to be said other than the fact that my oatmeal obsession is getting a little carried away. I can’t help it, a warm bowl of oats is the number one thing getting me out of bed on these chilly mornings! For more…
