    Grandma Wendy’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (& Vegan!)

    Grandma Wendy’s Cookies Grandma’s oatmeal raisin cookies! These cookies are sweet, soft, chewy, have large oats and lots of raisins. They’re everything you’re looking for to enjoy on a Sunday afternoon with some tea. Even better? Grandma Wendy graciously veganised them. Who doesn’t love to receive a phone call from grandma telling you she’s going to be baking for you? I was so honoured by this phone call because not only was grandma baking for me 🤤 but she was also calling to get help on how she can veganise her recipe. The legal stuff In true transparency, I’ve added some links to this post that are affiliate links. This means that…

    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 life so I came up with 7 pantry items for the beginner vegan to have on hand. . Accessibility I’ll be the first to admit that I love a good…

    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 Field Roast Sausages and toss them into the mix. The quantities are odd with this one. I’d say its a large portion for 2 people or a small/medium sized portion…

    5 Ways to make an Impact Today

    There are a LOT of reasons to switch to a more plant-based/vegan lifestyle. If we’re talking about making impact then a vegan lifestyle is for you. It’s not just about loosing weight — actually its not at all about loosing weight. It’s about living a more empathetic and holistic lifestyle. It’s about gaining a deeper connection to food, nutrition, our beautiful mother earth and all the living creatures living amongst us. I understand switching is a big task to take on. You’re literally changing everything you know about food. From what to eat to knowing how to prepare it and consume it. Even sometimes, where to obtain it. I’m not…

    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 more example of me accidentally making a high protein vegan meal. Not only that but its also high in fibre! Remember, the animals the average human consumes eats a plant-based…

    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. My husband and I love to snack after dinner, once our little sir is down for the night. We just happened to have Pillsbury Crescent roll dough in the fridge and whipped these up. You all loved them and couldn’t believe there was such thing as 15 minute cinnamon rolls I felt obligated to share the cinna-love. Pillsbury crescent rolls are one of my favourite accidnetly vegan products out there. I think I eat it more…

    Peanut Butter Banana Brownies

    Biting into a thick, dense, moist brownie is mouth watering…and these Peanut Butter Banana Brownies are no different. I had never been a big chocolate person. I was always into candy and non-chocolatey baked goods. But something about brownies… I get cravings that I just can’t ignore.   If you’ve been able to get through the covid quarantine without all the sugary cravings then I applaud you. But that surely has not been the case for me 😂 Naturally I fell victim to my brownie and peanut butter craving and decided to explore a bit! With a ton of banana’s on the counter and a love for peanut butter, it…

    Healthy Banana Bread Pancakes (& vegan friendly!)

    There is nothing like pancakes on Saturday morning. If you asked me, I’d eat breakfast for every single meal of the day! Everything from waffles, to pancakes, French toast, tofu scramble, breakfast sandwiches and more. Thats why these Banana Bread Pancakes have become a family favourite fast! I’ve always been one to respect breakfast. You’ll never catch me dashing out of the house with an empty stomach. I love to wake up slowly. Enjoy a latte, eat my breakfast at a reasonable pace and think about the day ahead. I’m also pretty routine when it comes to what I eat for breakfast — Monday to Friday I eat some variation of…

    Vegan Chilli Teriyaki Sauce

    This spicy, vegan friendly teriyaki sauce is just what you’ve been looking for! It’s great to marinate your tofu in, flavour your cauliflower wings (you can get the recipe here!) with or use it for a vegan teriyaki bowl. Your options are endless with this recipe. Not to mention it takes no time at all to whip up. As I said, it’s super easy to make. All you have to do is mince your fresh garlic and ginger. I do recommend using fresh — as I believe, fresh is best! But if you don’t have any, then the ground powders will do just fine! Once you have your garlic and ginger…

    Crispy BBQ Cauliflower Wings

      It all started with Super Bowl…but don’t all good food stories start that way? February 2nd 2020 was when the San Fransisco 49’ers went to the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs and I made crispy bbq cauliflower wings. Unfortunately for my husband and the rest of San Fran, they were defeated in the last quarter by the chiefs. But, fortunately for myself, my crispy BBQ Cauliflower Wings were a giant win! The build up to the Super Bowl was big this year since my husband’s team was playing. Becoming predominantly plant based 2 months before caused snackage to be a big topic before the game. We have…
