Delicious Overnight Oats

We know how important it is to start the day with a healthy breakfast, and we also know mornings can frequently be hectic. Having something available that doesn’t take much time (sorry, Pop Tarts don’t count!) can make a huge difference. We love the convenience, ease, and nutrition of Overnight Oats, and we love the…

Roasted Acorn Squash Soup

The inspiration for this soup came from wishing to use up some vegetables that we had on-hand….hence the inclusion of one small – and I mean very small – carrot! We also had a rather packed schedule for the day, and I wanted something nutritious, warm and yummy. I’m also a big fan of taking…

Crispy Tamari Tofu

Many people are not a fan of tofu. I get it; I really do. The texture can be off-putting, and some are unsure of the plant-based isoflavones found in tofu. Is it healthy or not? Much confusion surrounds this often misunderstood food source. When in doubt, I often seek out population studies. Soy-based products are a common…

Vegan Breakfast Cookies

If you’re anything like me, mornings can often be rushed. Even with the very best of intentions, time can slip away. Sometimes, before I know it, I have to rush out the door, and I may or may not have eaten. We all know how important starting your day off with good nutrition is, so…

Roasted Acorn Squash stuffed with Quinoa

We encourage eating locally and foods that are in season. Our farmers’ markets, roadside stands and local grocers are bursting at the seams with a variety of squash. While I love the flavour of butternut squash and feature it regularly in soups, the often neglected acorn or pepper squash is equally delicious and nutrient-dense, not…

Curry in a Hurry

  With Dan stressed out about exams and needing easy and nutritious food, one of the first recipes I sent him was his favourite Curry in a Hurry. The boys absolutely love this recipe. I love, too, that it takes just minutes to prepare. This can be served on its own or over rice. This…

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Coconut Milk

There is perhaps nothing I enjoy more than a warm bowl of soup on a cold, windy day (or any day for that matter). One of our favourite soups is any variation that includes butternut squash. While I adore eating butternut squash, I don’t so much adore cutting or peeling an uncooked squash. I’ve had…

Sheet Pan Roasted Vegetables with Tamari Glaze

I absolutely adore roasted vegetables. I also absolutely adore minimal cleanup. Most of the time when I cook, the kitchen is an absolute disaster! Knives, cutting boards and bowls everywhere…measuring cups and spoons…spices, you name it! Cooking is messy. The alternative – purchasing pre-made food – is not only costly, but often not very healthy. A…

Kale Salad

A while ago, friends brought over a very tasty “salad in a bag”. Then, just last week, Grace and I were chatting, and she mentioned how much she too loved this particular salad in a bag. It turns out this salad has a very large and loyal fan base! It’s a delicious combination of kale,…
