I know, I know – the holidays are behind us so this post is a little late. But I made these holiday sides for Christmas Eve, instead of a month ahead of time like a ~*good blogger*~. Sorry, okay!?
All 3 of these easy holiday side dishes are plant-based and super healthy, so you can feel good about eating them all year long, while sticking to any resolutions you may have made. And you can always pin these recipes to make next Christmas! (more…)
Christmas may be over, but the holiday season isn’t just yet. You’ve still got a few good days left before those darn New Year’s resolutions kick in, so why not take advantage of them and enjoy this indulgent treat? (Your body won’t know. I promise, this is scientific.)
This white chocolate fruit and nut bark is super easy to make and you (or your recipient) won’t be able to get enough of it. (more…)
Few cocktails taste so much like Christmas than a spiced rum apple toddy. There are many different takes on hot toddy recipes, but this one’s my personal favourite. I served these up at my recent Christmas party (post to come!) and they were a big hit. They’re simple to whip up, delicious, warm, festive, and surprisingly potent. (more…)
If you, like me, love indulging in delicious holiday treats all through the month, but are still trying to eat kind of healthy, I’ve got just the recipe for you. There’s nothing more swoon-worthy or festive than dark chocolate Christmas bark, and since this one’s made with 79% dark chocolate and loaded with healthy nuts and dried fruit, it gets to stay off the “naughty” list.
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…)
I’ve been trying to eat really healthy again over the past month, and while most of it has been smooth sailing, the thing that’s been the hardest to say goodbye to are processed sugar and fat-laden desserts, like cakes, brownies, and ice creams. Since munching on fruit just wasn’t cutting it when it came to my dessert cravings, I decided to invent a solution. (more…)
It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted a recipe! This is what I served the other night when I had my relatives over for dinner at my apartment. (more…)
With autumn just around the corner, this end-of-summer recipe takes full advantage of ingredients that are currently in season before they disappear for the long, cold winter: watermelon and berries.
This salad is both beautiful and refreshing, making it an ideal side dish for summer entertaining, or a light and healthy meal for one. (more…)
Avocados are the bees’ knees. They’re so good, they practically don’t need anything else added to them. But combined with a few simple ingredients, whipping up a yummy & healthy guacamole is easy as pie. (more…)
You really can’t screw up scrambled eggs. (Though Gordon Ramsay would disagree.)
They’re quick, delicious, and fuss-free. And as great as plain ‘ol scrambled eggs are, adding in some veggies makes them even better. You won’t even notice you’re eating something healthy! (more…)
In the warmer months, when it’s hot and sticky out, there’s nothing better than to come inside and enjoy a cool, refreshing meal.
Here’s one of my favorite salad recipes, filled with fresh, Italian-inspired flavours. As with all my recipes, this one’s quick and stupidly simple. (more…)
I don’t often make smoothies, because I prefer to eat my fruit and veggies in their whole form. But sometimes I’m not in the mood for a jumbo salad, and a smoothie is a great way to get some extra greens in on those days. (more…)
We all know that water is the healthiest thing for us to drink. Our bodies need water for just about everything. But let’s face it: sometimes water is dead boring. So occasionally, it needs to be dressed up a little. (more…)
This is the simplest, most delicious healthy lunch (or snack) you can make: an easy avocado sandwich.
