MY GO TO GREEN JUICE

Part of my new eating routine is going to be a Green Smoothie a day. This recipe is one I have been making for a while and I love it. It’s simple and a nice introduction to the green juice life.

CREAMY RED LELTILS AND OATS

I’ve been wanting to make to savory oat dish for a while now. I finally got around to is this week and wow, it was a pleasant surprise. I soaked the oats the night before and then woke up in the morning and it was a pretty quick to whip together. Hope you enjoy!

TAHINI PASTA SAUCE

So I bought a big jar of tahini a couple week ago to make hummus. As much as I love hummus there is only so much you can make. So I’ve been trying to figure what to do with my tahini. Tahini is a nut butter technically and it kinda looks like white sauce( if you twist you head and cover one eye). Anyways I loved this! Hope you guys do too!

ZUCCHINI AND CARROT BURGER PATTY

I had some spiralized zucchini and carrots in my fridge and was thinking about making some Pad Thai when I realized I had no soy sauce, or peanuts, or really anything else I need. Ops! So this was an on the fly recipe( like most of the stuff I make) and I loved, loved, loved it

KHICHDI (LENTILS AND RICE)

This is one of my all time favorite Indian things to make that my mum taught me. Alright, to be honest its probably one of the only Indian dishes I’ve been able to make myself and feel satisfied with how it turns out. It fast, takes just one pot (yay, less washing!), and its nutrition and yummy! What more do we really need in life?

CHICKEN SOUP FOR A FLU

So I was sick for quite a while recently. To be honest all I wanted was to be back at home where I wouldn’t have to take care of myself. Got to say I usually miss the parents most when I’m sick. Anyways, after a week of barely eating I decided to suck it up and make myself something warm and filling and it was awesome!

VEGAN BASIL PESTO

So I want to start of by saying I’m not vegan. I used to be once upon a time but not anymore. I did however recently find out I am lactose intolerant. This is a first time I attempted making pesto without any parmesan. I was a little hesitant at first but I’ve got to say this tasted awesome, didn’t really miss the parmesan at all! I ended up making it twice in the same week!

 

5 MINUTE BANANA OATMEAL'

It’s getting dreary and slightly chilly here in Toronto and I’ve been craving oatmeal. Last winter I think I had oatmeal nearly 4 morning a week. It’s quick and warm and filling! Oh, also taste good! Anyways, this is something new I tried this week. I had a banana lying around and was honestly craving banana pudding but this was good alternative. The best part is that you don’t need to add a sweetener to your oats because the banana is sweet enough.

BANANA MATCHA PANCAKES

I love making these cause they are super-fast, don’t require a lot of ingredients, and doesn’t use a lot of dishes. All things I look for while making breakfast! You can always take out the Matcha if you aren’t feeling it. You could replace it with protein powder, cacao powder, or nothing at all. Get creative, use whatever you have around and enjoy!

STRAWBERRY CHIA SEED JAM

So for the last month I’ve been put on a sugar free diet (for the most part, sometimes you just got to have a bit!) by my doctor for health reasons. It’s made me have to really re-think processed, store bought products. I didn’t fully realize the amount of sugar that is in all the foods out there!!
