Sweet Potato Walnut Breakfast Cookies

Let your childhood dreams blend with your responsible side with these healthy cookies that you can eat for breakfast. These are truly the definition of healthy cookies. Mashed sweet potato, almond butter, maple syrup, walnuts—these add up to provide tons of nutrients and protein. Need more convincing? They’re paleo and flourless, are super easy to…

Salt and Vinegar Roasted Chickpeas

Roasted chickpeas are a great snack because they’re high in protein, gluten-free and vegan. As a bonus, this recipe is really low maintenance so you can catch up on some reading, cleaning, binge-watching Netflix, whatever. I originally got this recipe from Oh She Glows but I changed a couple of things. I thought that since…

Vegan Sloppy Joes

This is the epitome of vegetarian comfort food. It’s quick, easy, and of course, sloppy. This was my first time making/eating any form of sloppy joes. I was generally familiar with what they were, but I’d never had them as a kid and the idea had never really crossed my mind. Luckily, I found the…

Broccoli, Cheddar and Eggplant Quiche

Quick breakfasts are convenient, but sometimes putting in some extra time is worth it. Quiche is easy, cheap and low-maintenance so you can do the crossword, watch morning cartoons or sit in a morning-zombie state at your kitchen table until it’s done. I know eggplant is not really a traditional addition to quiche, but I…

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…

Chickpea, Sesame and Sweet Potato Patties

It’s rare that you’ll find a vegan, gluten-free and easy baked patty that satisfies the appetite of non-veggies and veggies alike. It’s perfect for bringing to get-togethers because you can make the mix in advance, and people who aren’t as open-minded about food will be willing to try it because it’s ingredients are all recognizable….

Vegan Chorizo Sausage Chili with Black Beans

This super-easy chili is packed with protein and vitamins, and doesn’t sacrifice flavour. You can eat it on its own or scoop it up in tortilla chips; either way, you’re going to love it. Imitation meat can be pretty hit and miss. I’ve actually never been a huge fan of Tofurky-brand products but I found…

Sweet Potato, Black Bean and Quinoa Chili

This week was one of those “let’s see what’s in my kitchen and throw something together” kind of weeks. Luckily I had lots of scraps around and only had to run out for toppings, which made for a colourful, gluten-free, vegan and healthy chili. I feel like a lot of people see chili as a…

Chipotle Black Bean and Toasted Quinoa Burgers

You can’t buy frozen burgers like this. Tons of protein, flavour, colour and nutrition packed into one burger patty—can’t go wrong. Before making this recipe, I always just assumed that chipotle peppers were their own kind of pepper. But as it turns out, chipotles are actually just smoked jalapeno peppers! I feel like this is…

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,…
