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...

            I don’t know about you guys, but I spend way too much money on hummus. I know I know, there are some brands that don’t cost a fortune; but, when it comes to hummus I always end up spending at least 4$ on a small container, that will last me MAYBE 3 or 4 days; sometimes less, especially when its too hot and hummus ends up being both my lunch and supper wit...

            You know those days when it gets so hot outside, that regardless of having both air conditioners running all day/night you still cant get the apartment back down to a human temperature? Yeah, that’s the small hell we’ve been living with here in Sherbrooke for the past week. Thankfully its slowly starting to go down, this morning I was even able to get up...

          Sometimes you just need a little something extra to really bring life to some of our favourite and classic meals, I used to buy the pre-made veggie meatballs from Yves cuisine, but I found them rather expensive! So I decided to find a cheaper way to add a little something extra to my spaghetti and maybe even enjoy a “meatball sub”....

          I think my ideal meal would be just endless appetizer options! I love having a ton of different bites of food! Different flavours, textures and colours I mean its just an endless party in your mouth!

          One of my favourite appetizers has always been bruschetta, I find it super light and refreshing especially whe...

           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...

          Sometimes you just need to be sneaky and find ways to add a little bit of extra green in your diet to really boost the energy levels, Zucchini noodles pretty much do that perfectly! To feed a hungry adult, this meal takes one whole Zucchini per person, If you felt like your body was in need of a heavily based...

  Even Cici was curious about the deliciousness to come 

          Alright so I realize I’ve been posting fall recipes already, but this summer feeling mango salsa just seemed to fit, The days here in Sherbrooke are going from horribly cold to very warm and sunny so my seasonal clock is a bit off!

            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...

          It's as easy as cutting up a few veggies and tossing them into a bowl; oh wait, that exactly what it is, so why not make it tonight? Its quick, its easy, and makes for a super refreshing and light salad to accompany any meal, as well as leave a good impression at all of your summer get togethers.

          Add some colour and li...

          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...

Its super yummy and soooo much better than the store bought versions! because in this salad you know exactly what is in there, no hiding behind big confusing preservative...

          Pickled onions are super yummy with so many different things! especially in the summer time, I love adding them to some of our favourite meals, it just adds a little extra flavour and tang to all our summer favourites! like Burgers, tacos, salads and even the occasional burrito :)

          This recipe is so easy you...

             I’m not a particularly big fan of lettuce, I find it rather boring and I end up not finishing my food because it’s just annoying to eat. So my challenge when it comes to summer foods is how to make a salad taste good to me? Well if I add in a ton of spicy and fun foods, it seems to become less of a chore to eat!
