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…

Omega-licious Granola

This yummy mix of goodness is loaded with omega-rich ingredients! I also like to call this my “low-‘nola” because it’s low on the sugar side. Instead of using regular oil or butter, I’ve chosen to use coconut oil instead. After a few trials, I’ve come to realize the coconut oil actually makes it more crunchy…

Cashew, Cranberry, Hemp Heart Bars

Song in Headphones: Genghis Khan (I took dance breaks while writing this) If you find you’re in a rush some mornings, grab one of these on the way to work/school with an apple — you’re set till lunch! I sometimes eat one before a run to keep me going, and they are especially great for hiking….

5 Minute Protein Bites

I first made these protein bars for my trip to Wedgemount Lake – and was I ever glad I did. Usually when I go for full day hikes, I tend to buy the pricy mainstream protein bars from the grocery store. They are full of fructose and shit. I asked myself before I left for…

Chia Seed Berry Pudding

It’s safe to say I’ve hopped on the “chia seed pudding” bandwagon. I’ve been quickly preparing this mixture these past two nights. It’s great. This concoction is so simple to make it’s ridiculous. By morning, It turns into this completely different medley of ingredients — and tastes even better. For this recipe I used a mixture…

Zesty Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash

This week was ridiculously crazy at work so I knew I wanted a kick-start this morning…full energy breakfast come at me! I put this…

Quinoa Tabbouleh

If you’re looking for a quick and easy grab-and-go lunch, you’ve got to try this out. Originated from Lebanon, Tabbouleh is normally a cold served vegetarian salad full of pungent herbs and flavour. Instead of using traditional Bulgar, I’ve hopped off the bandwagon and gone with quinoa in this recipe.

Golden Turmeric Tea

The use of this beautiful yellow spice dates back as far as 3000 years. Originated from India and Asia, turmeric has been known to reduce all sorts of problems our body’s may experience. After numerous hours of reading, I’ve come to know this spice has been known to treat liver problems, gastrointestinal issues, inflammation such as arthritis,…

Vegan PSL

Here in Vancouver, fall is in the air. It’s official. Leaves are changing colours, mornings let off that pink haze, you pile on those chunky sweaters, and of course — indulge yourself in those beautiful Pumpkin Spice Latte’s whenever you get the chance. Being a favoured season of mine, I can’t not go without one of these…
