Hummus is one of those snacks that is easy to pack and fills you up before you know it. Chick peas, the key ingredient in hummus, is packed with protein, fibre, iron and so many other awesome nutrients, making it such a great snack for the work day! In my early days I used to […]

Chewy Chocolate Oat Cookies

This Lent season has been moving along quite well surprisingly. I have been keeping up with this flourless and dairy-less diet better than I thought, but man do I still crave chocolate. Listen, I may have given up grain and dairy, but I’m still human right? I decided to research vegan and flourless cookies and […]

Chia Pudding Tips

Chia pudding seems to still hold strong for many and to be honest it’s been a while since I had some, until I started this flourless and dairy-less Lent journey (I am on Day 15 by the way). These little seeds are packed full of nutrients and benefits, but it’s not for everyone! When introducing […]

Roasted Chickpeas

I was first introduced to roasted chickpeas about 12 years ago. I was working with a lovely Indian woman who had shared her food with me and from then on I was hooked! Growing up, the only way we ate chick peas was “pasta e ceci”, which translates to chick peas with homemade pasta in […]

Holiday Avocado Dip

If you’re anything like me, your diet lately consists of pretty much Ferrero Rocher chocolates all day. This is the issue around the holidays. Friends and family are showing up for holiday visits, which is great, but that means we always have little snacks and treats ready for them. My cellar is full of chocolate […]

Festive Cheddar Crackers

Crackers have always been that quick snack to keep the kids quiet and hold them off until the next meal. I wasn’t always a huge cracker fan, unless there was a wheel of melted brie next to it, then I would indulge. Now with Emilia, I’m always looking for homemade healthier alternatives to keep her […]

DIY Instant Oatmeal

I’m trying really hard to eat healthier in the morning. Many times my breakfast consists of coffee and a bagel because it’s easy and quite frankly, carbs do the job. Hot oatmeal is always delicious, but I know when I head back to work I won’t have time in the morning to cook my oatmeal […]

Sweet Potato and Squash Croquette

Lately it’s been hit and miss with my 10 month old daughter. There are days where she will eat a bowl full of pasta and others where she refuses to be fed by anyone and only wants pieces of bread. She’s also not ready to eat just anything in small pieces. For her to eat […]

All Day Chocolate Pudding

I am now entering my tenth month of maternity leave and I have to say I am in a rut. I was exclusively breastfeeding until five months, and up until then I was losing weight to the point where I was skinnier than my pre-pregnancy body. Now that Emilia is eating more solids and I’m […]

Cheesy Cauliflower Bites

I have a love/hate relationship with cauliflower. It’s not my favourite vegetable to eat on its own.  When I bite into them my palette’s reaction is nothing short of ‘meh’. Growing up, cauliflower was only allowed to be made one way, boiled then sautéed with potatoes. It’s good, don’t get me wrong, but I end […]
