Blueberry Basil Moscow Mule

This slightly sweet, spicy and refreshing beverage will be in my cup all summer long. It’s the ginger beer for me, y’all. You know when you go to a bar, or your parent’s house, and it’s drink o’clock and you want something a bit different?! You want taste without the bloat of beer, flavour without…

Dark Chocolate Protein Nuggets

Oh hi! I didn’t see you there. I was too busy snackin’ healthy. I was in Costco the other day and I found these Keto Nuggets and decided to give them a shot. I’ve been looking for something that I can eat post-dinner that isn’t too terrible for you. I really just can’t get behind…

Vegan Mocha Buttercream

If someone were to ask me to choose between coffee and chocolate I just couldn’t do it. Those are my absolute two favourite things on the planet, so let’s put them together and plop it on a cake. Sound good? This recipe has the word “vegan” in front of it, but if you aren’t vegan…

Chocolate Raspberry Baked Oats

I’m obsessed! Trends are trends for a reason, people. If you haven’t heard about these baked oats from your social media platforms, you are in for a treat! This is a quick, simple and pretty healthy little breakfast idea. It’s basically a better-for-you version of a mug cake. It’s so delicious. All of the required…

Simple Beetroot Pasta

It’s pasta o’clock and I’m switching it up today with this tortiglioni in a creamy beet sauce. It’s pink, so you know it’s going to be good! I’m always diverting from traditional pasta sauces because life is too exciting to do boring things. The method this recipe follows is the tried-and-true method I use for…

Sumac Roasted Cauliflower

Give it up for cauliflower, the most versatile vegetable! Hey-yo! There’s no easier recipe, I promise you that. This whole-roasted cauliflower head is simple to prepare but complex on the palate! It’s vibe is very Middle Eastern – sumac, currants, pomegranates, pistachios. It’s visually stunning and a perfect side to go along with the rest…

Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Bars

Is there any better combo than nut butter and chocolate? I think nut. I’m a HUGE choco + peanut butter fan, but I thought I’d switch it up today and choose a slightly healthier nut butter to create a slightly less-healthy dessert. Balance. These bars have a thick shortbread-type bottom layer, a crunchy and sweet…

Vegan Power Muffins

Who said muffin tops were bad? Embrace those bulges with these healthier POWER muffs! All the yum, none of the guilt. I LOVE muffins. Love, love, love them. But I’m always finding myself feeling bad after eating them, which is so silly. A girl can’t eat a muffin in the 21st century anymore without feeling…

Grilled Piña (Colada) French Toast

I think it’s safe to say that we all need a drink at this point of the pandemic. Let’s also put alcohol in our food…because that sounds fun! Whenever I travel to the Caribbean, I have piña coladas on rotate. They are thick, slushy and sweet, and just the perfect hot-day drink. And, obviously my…

Tropical Banana Flambé

Ayyyeeee! It’s gettin’ caliente in here, beaches!! Let’s take a trip to the Caribbean! Okay, nevermind, Rona’s still stomping on our parades, so, let’s bring the Caribbean to us. Grab your piñas and your lighters and let’s set fuego to this *****…Whattt?! I meant “house.” This recipe is inspired by one of my sweet besties….
