Easy Vegetable Frittata with Shredded Tofu

I have never had a successful time with cast iron skillets and eggs. No matter how much oil or butter I put down, the eggs still always stuck and fell apart. This time, I found the perfect method. The trick is to heat the pan in advance so that it’s really hot before you coat…

Peanut Butter and Banana Oatmeal

One of my favourite after-school snacks as a kid was banana smothered in peanut butter. To this day that flavour combo is one of my favourites: in sandwiches, smoothies, and now, oatmeal. I got this recipe from Pastry Affair and I’m very pleased! There’s some very yummy-looking photos to go along with her recipe so…

Pumpkin-Walnut Granola

After making this granola, you’ll be laughing at how much you used to spend on it in stores (in between shoving it in your mouth). You could get really creative with this recipe if you wanted to—I had the urge to add sweetened coconut, dried cranberries and toasted almonds but I wanted to keep it…

Savoury French Toast Breakfast Sandwich

Let’s talk for a second about hangovers. I had a really nasty one this past weekend, and as many of you may know, your appetite can either be non-existent or rampant. I tend to get much pickier and want something that will fuel me more than plain toast. Enter french toast, a great eggy bread…

Greek Scrambled Eggs with Feta, Tomato and Dill

For any of you who have grown your own veggies, you know that there’s no comparison to store-bought. Yesterday I came home to ripe tomatoes on the vine and red onions…they taste nothing like ones from grocery stores. They smell better, taste better and it’s nice to know you’re eating something that came from your…

Easy Homemade Maple-Mango Granola

I’ve been wanting to make granola for a while because it’s one of the best breakfast foods. Easy to make, lasts a long time, very flexible with ingredients, and mixes well with yogurt. This recipe is from Judy Krizmanic’s “The Teen’s Vegetarian Cookbook” which outlines some simple and inexpensive meals. This was the first cookbook…

Healthy Blueberry Breakfast Muffins

I’ve recently come to the conclusion that fast-food muffins are basically cupcakes. I know it’s not shocking, but when I ordered a muffin from my school’s coffee shop and it came topped with chocolate drizzle and powdered sugar, I couldn’t bring myself to call it a muffin. Besides being over-sweet, store bought muffins can be…

Energy Boost Smoothie

If you’re like me, sometimes eating is the last thing I want to do in the morning. When you have to be out the door in a rush or if you’re just hungover, eggs and toast isn’t exactly ideal. That’s why smoothies are the greatest breakfast ever. Kiwi, blueberry, strawberry, orange and peanut butter. Simple,…

Baked Eggs in Tomato Cups

Rushed mornings should not mean no breakfast. You can prep this recipe in 2 minutes the night before (literally) so everything will be ready to go in the morning. Bake the cups while you’re doing your daily morning routine so by the time you’re ready to leave you can eat this and go. This recipe…

Smoky Tempeh ‘Bacon’

I’ve been a vegetarian for a long time now, but even when I did eat meat as a kid, I never really loved bacon. But even so, every time my family eats bacon it looks really appetizing, even though I already know how it tastes. I also can’t watch Epic Meal Time without getting a…
