5 Healthy Vegan Breakfast Ideas
I loooove breakfast and breakfast foods, but I hardly ever eat it. Most mornings, I wake up, get ready, and fly out the door as quickly as possible. But if it’s a weekend or a day I’m working from home, I love spending a few minutes putting together a beautiful (and super delicious) breakfast to start the day.
While I’m not strictly vegan (or strictly anything), I do try to ensure the majority of my meals are plant-based. Here are a few of my go-to quick and easy breakfast options. (more…)
Vegan Spicy Tofu Poke Bowls
I’m obsessed with poke bowls, and I order them all the time. However, what I’m not obsessed with are the tofu poke bowls most restaurants offer. See, raw salmon and tuna have an inherent flavour, so those bowls are tasty even without the fish being marinated or drenched in a sauce. But when tofu is served up that same way – plain – it’s bland as hell. And we don’t do bland in this household. (more…)

Healthy Vegan Cauliflower Tacos 2 Ways
My best friend and I booked a girls’ trip to Mexico in March! I’m so tired of Toronto’s cold winter weather, can’t wait to lay on a beach, soak up the sun, and eat my body weight in tacos and guac.

Anyway, if you want to get into the spirit with me and celebrate Taco Tuesday, here are my 2 recipes for easy vegan cauliflower tacos. They’re delicious, quick to whip up, and made with only good things. Whether you’re an omnivore, eating dairy-free, or are a strict vegan – you’ll love these rainbow taco beauties. (more…)

Recipe du Jour: The Breakfast Burger
It all started with a question: can you microwave an egg? I did what anyone with a thought in their head and working internet connection would do: I Googled it. As it turns out, you can microwave an egg. I skimmed through a few recipes that included this method, from quiches to complex frittatas, some of which were made in a mug. When I saw that, an idea began to take shape in my mind, and a recipe was born. I call it the Smoked Salmon Egg Frittata Breakfast Burger, and it’s ah-maz-ing. (more…)
