Whats New This Week?

October 19, 2019

          There’s something about the cooler weather that always makes my diet take a 360 twist for the worst. I tend to forget that fruits and veggies are not optional but necessary, and end up eating a ton of calorie dense foods that make me feel horrible, but warm and cozy at the same time. 

          This year, I decided to pay attention t...

            Sometimes we all need a little inspiration on what to pack for those work/school lunches. Making a HUGE salad at the beginning of the week is always a winner but, by day three you’re pretty much guaranteed to already be pretty bored with your food! Rather than end up losing motivation half way through the week, why not just make three different salads and...

           Classic comfort food is always a must, but sometimes a little twist on our favourites can bring it to a whole new level of yummy-ness. These cashew ricotta and spinach roll-ups with rosé sauce are not only perfect for a relaxing supper at home, but they also make for a prefect work lunch to keep you happy and full of energy for the rest of your day!...

          Sometimes work lunches can be a bore, I tend to stick to the same 3 or 4 meals usually based around pasta or rice, I like my carbs :p As a new years resolution I decided it would be a good idea to incorporate more meals with a wider variety of grains, veggies and protein.  So lets kick it off with one of my newest workweek favourites! Veggie filled falafel...

            Last week was an insane rush, from the moment I woke up until the second I was finally able to fall asleep! Along with trying to get used to the new job, making reservations and plans for a weekend getaway, taking care of the apartment, a sick fiancé along side two overly energetic cats; I have to admit, it wasn't easy!  Saturday morning before leaving I...

          So I won’t lie, I was at home this week watching Friends on Netflix, and Joey (one of the main characters) was eating a “meatball sub”. I’ve never, not even as a non-vegan had a meatball sub, but this show made it sound so good!!  So I decided it was time to try it out! I used to buy the Yves cuisine pre-made veggie meatballs but to be honest I find them ex...

           For the most part being vegan is simple, but then, there are dinner parties. I don't know about you but even before I went vegan I was always super awkward when it came to eating in public, I like to investigate my food so eating while standing is a challenge, especially when you also have to be a part of the conversation going on around you. Last Wednesda...

            If you’ve never had polenta fries before you are in for a treat! Okay so, imagine the best French fries you’ve ever had…. These will be even better. Alright so before I get you all hyped up thinking this is kind of exactly like the regular fries we all know and love, I’ll mention that no, its not like a regular potato French fry. Polenta is made of cornme...

          I've never had sweet potato tacos until I ran out of lentils... Yes, This creation only happened because this little weirdo was too lazy, and kind of just forgot to buy lentils, and you know what? I'm happy I did because even though lentils are good for you, its always better to have a wide variety of fresh foods making sure to switch up your diet in order...

          I Love a good summer panini, I used to LOVE having BLT panini's especially, they just always seemed really light and full of summer flavour, even more so since I had a honey mustard addiction! Well guess what! You can make a BLT in panini form as a vegan and not only is it delicious, but its better than the oil and fat filled original! This sandwich is load...

          At the beginning of each week I like to make some sort of a snack, like a cookie, muffin or some type of bar, so max and I can grab a little something extra to add into our lunches. This week max talked about blueberry muffins at least three times so I felt the need to make him some!

          I’ve never been a muffin or cake type of pers...

          This week my schedule was a bit different I had the Wednesday instead of the Tuesday off, shouldn’t change much in life but for me it was a great opportunity to prep my meals for Thursday and Friday at work! Every Thursday I work a beautiful 13-hour shift from 8am to 9pm (and that’s only a 13 hour shift, if we can actually leave...

           So this might look like a mess, who am I kidding, it totally looks like a mess, but it tastes so good I couldn't careless :P No I didn't make it rhyme on purpose Im just cool like that.

          Alrighty, this new little creation came from my love of Mexican food and my overwhelming amount of laziness. I'll admit it takes...

          A summer must for me has always been a good wrap, Being vegan doesn’t mean we need to cut out all of our favourite foods, especially not a childhood favourite like this one! It just means we need to find more creative ways to make and enjoy our food!

          This wrap is so simple,  I’m almost embarrassed to write down a list of “ingred...
