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…

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…
