Rosy Smoothie Bowl

A pretty, and sweet start to your morning! This one is for all those berry lovers out there. What you need 1 frozen Banana 1 cup frozen Strawberries 1/2 cup frozen Raspberries 1 pitted date Spoonful of any kind of nut butter (I use this one from Costco, but almond or sunflower seed butter would…

Baked Portabello Steaks

These fellas are a nice alternative to your traditional meat or veggie burger bought at a store. I’ve enjoyed these portabellos as a side dish, in between a fresh kaiser bun or nicely nestled in a lettuce boat! There are only 5 ingredients – that’s it! The marinade ingredients are typically always found in ones…

Morning Sunshine Chia Bowl

Ask anyone I work with and they will tell you I basically eat the same breakfast at work every day. It’s my chia seed breakfast pudding in a Tupperware. This sunshine bowl ups the ante a bit with added fruit, but it’s still a super easy breakfast to make and it contains 12g of protein…

Savoury Baked Tofu

This is a super quick and easy recipe to make. It will up the ante on your tofu game – I promise you. Some might describe this tofu to have an “umami” flavour. What I found great about this recipe was that it took no time at all and was well worth it in the…

Cozy Plant-Based Daal

It was my mum who initially introduced this recipe to me. Back when I was living at home it would be the dish I’d crave the most. Something about a good curry just makes the world go round and my tummy grumbly. This is super simple to make and literally a last minute pantry dinner….

Strawberry-Rhubarb Crumble

Something about the combination of strawberries and rhubarb makes the world go round. It’s by far one of my most favorite dessert flavors – especially in crumbles and pies! I made this crumble in jiffy and it’s an easy go-to dessert for these coming warm months. As a topping topper, I whipped up some coconut…

Rainbow Salad Rolls with Peanut Sauce

I absolutely LOVE eating these. The process of making them is so worth it in the end. The prep part may seem a bit daunting with all the fixings and ingredients, but know they are so yum-scrum and will make you feel so alive, healthy and fresh! Of course there are many variations of salad…

Buddha Dressing

If you ask anyone who’s eaten lunch around me this past year, they will tell you I have this dressing on my salads at least 4 days a week. It’s the perfect combination of savoury flavours and works well with all sorts of salad fixings. It literally takes 13 seconds to put together (I timed…

24 Hours on the Juan de Fuca Trail

I am situated here on Vancouver Island for the summer. Before I started my Clinical rotation, my friend and I decided to head west and get a little taste of the Juan de Fuca Trail. Due to time restraints, we could only afford the minuscule 24 hours at this place.

6 Days Trekking in Assiniboine

I have done a lot of hikes in my life so far, but this one in particular blew it out of the ball park for me. Assiniboine Provincial Park is situated nice and snug on the British Columbia and Alberta border. The route we took started us in Banff National Park, then we entered into…
