    Gardening for New Comers

    It’s the beginning of gardening season! I would have never thought I would be one to get excited about gardening season, but alas, here I am! I’m so excited in fact that I’m writing a damn blog post about it! Although, this is something that has been on the to do list for….well, a year! But rather than fretting what I shoulda, coulda, woulda done, lets just be happy we’re here. I’m pretty new at this whole gardening business. Last spring…

    What does it mean to be healthy?

    It’s been hard for me lately.  Life is all about the ebs and flows, the good and bad. One day we feel balanced, whole and confident and the next we’re off kilter, in pieces and hard on ourselves.  And the love journey with my body hasn’t any different. The constant messages we receive is that fatness is bad. We have fatphobia engrained in our culture and it’s runs as deep as it can go.  I’ve been working hard and dismantling…

    4 Documentaries about Your Health

    We are surrounded by information these days, from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TV News, News Apps, Google etc. Then; you have to question if it’s a reliable source, is the study sponsored?

That’s why I wanted to create posts categorizing and outlining the best vegan documentaries to watch. . How it…

    7 Pantry Items For the Beginner Vegan

    Often the thought of switching vegan/plant-based is paired with the idea that the foods are flavourless and there’s going to be a lot to loose. Being on the other side, I can say with full confidence that I’m enjoying way more flavour in my food now than I ever have before and I’ve only gained more love and knowledge for the foods I eat. But I wanted to help ease the transition for anyone curious in living a more veggie forward…

    15 minute garlic breadsticks

      Inspired by the garlic breadsticks you dream about from your favourite Italian restaurant…or maybe it’s Pizza Hut. I mean, you can’t deny they make some killer garlic breadsticks. These sticks are full of flavour, soft with the slightest bit of crunch and great for sweeping across an empty pasta bowl to pick up that leftover sauce. The best part? They only take 15 minutes to whip up and only requires 5 ingredients. 15 minute cheat recipes are my jam!…

    Vegan Vegetable Gnocchi

    Quick & Easy Vegetable Gnocchi My husband is obsessed with gnocchi. For that reason we typically always have a couple packs on hand. This meal is great for those tough nights where you just don’t know what to make for dinner. This was created on one of those nights. We had a variety of pre-cut vegetables, some left over vegetable broth and with some seasonings a delicious meal was created. To add more protein we love to dice up the…

    Green Lentil Vegetable Soup

    Green Lentil Vegetable Soup…who would’ve thought I’d be creating warm soup recipes in the middle of July?! But, here I am 🤷🏼‍♀️ I’m often confronted with people telling me they’re searching for more protein in their diet. Especially when contemplating switching to vegan/plant-based. I find it comes easy to me, once you really open up to other foods that you normally wouldn’t go for. Nuts, seeds and different vegetables all provide exactly what you need. This soup is just one…

    15 minute cinnamon rolls

    I should have known my 15 minute cinnamon rolls would be a hit 😂 It makes me so proud to have so many followers as passionate about food and cinnamon buns as I am.

You all loved them and couldn’t believe there was such thing as…
