Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are a newfound glory in my life. Neither of my parents will eat them because they grew up hating them so much, so I’d never really tried them until a year ago when I tried roasting the individual petals and burnt them all (not a great introduction, but it was my fault, not… Continue reading Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Low-Sodium Potato Waffles

If you’re anything like me, your stomach can’t handle a sugar-overload kind of breakfast.

Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Pancakes

In honour of celebrating Pancake Tuesday, I decided to make some sweet potato pancakes with onion and a pretty big kick of spice (you can adjust it if you want it to be mild). They’re packed with protein, easy to make and you’ll definitely want seconds. These pancakes are basically a twist on traditional potato… Continue reading Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Pancakes
