Cabbage Rolls, Southwest Scramble, Easy Falafel & Lentil Loaf :)

I’ve been trying to get a post done forever, it feels like. I’ve started one just like this several times but now I’m really starting it with a commitment to finish and post. It’s weird to me that I was continuously half finishing a post and then something would always pull me away and I…

Big Macs, Faux Tuna Salad & Stew

Happy Groundhog Day! I really like groundhog day when it comes around each year. I’m excited to hear the groundhogs’ consensus – I guess see it, not so much hear it. Hear it from their human handlers and from the news, I guess is the more accurate way to say that. There are several groundhogs…

Winter Cooking Spree!

I took advantage of that New Year enthusiasm this January and started trying out some new recipes again! It also helps that I received the new Oh She Glows cookbook for Christmas – it was very inspiring, however only one of these recipes was found in that book. I’m still really glad to own the…

Red Lentil Dahl, Kale Salad & Roasted Winter Salad Bowl

It’s official – winter is here in Ottawa! We received a huge delivery of about 15 – 20cm of snow between Sunday and Monday, it’s snowing again today, and there’s still more to come this week. How do I feel about that? AMAZING 🙂 The time between the first snow and Christmas is one of…

Peach Blueberry Cobbler, Vegan Goulash & Thanksgiving Bowl

Summer is finally coming to an end. A very slow, hot, humid and rainy end. That’s alright though, I can dream of fall for a few more weeks until it actually arrives. I brought out my fall scented candles in preparation and I’ve been researching the best vegan pumpkin spiced latte recipes to make at…

Comfort Food Substitutes + Detox Soup (Summer is busy!)

So I was under the impression, as a child, that summer was the time for relaxing. You have this massive surplus of free time to do things such as: lie around in a hammock, run through a sprinkler, sit in the grass and eat some popsicles, or read endless novels. That is really what I…

Many things for #iyp2016

There are many, many things to say. The first is the theme of this post is International Year of Pulses – which is this current year, 2016. Find more info on that at iyp2016.org. First pulse-based recipe, a really delicious chickpea tikka masala from The Iron You. Several posts back, I made chickpea masala (with…

Hashbrown Casserole, Banana Bread & Energy Balls

In an effort to post more regularly and avoid posts like last time (gigantic list of things) here are just a few things I wanted to share this week. I’m training for my 10K race more regularly now. The weather is being ridiculous so honestly it’s a challenge to get out there. Yesterday I went…

Ready for Spring!

Spring was here in Ottawa, but then there was a snow storm and it went away. Now it might be coming back. That’s the weather of Canada in a nutshell. It’s been a long time, I don’t even know where to start! In fact, I just decided I will write this in several parts so…

Spring Veggie Bowl, Cauliflower Tacos & Mediterranean Salad

I know, it’s not technically spring yet. However two groundhogs did agree that spring would be coming soon! I think the most important opinion on this issue is that of Punxsutawney Phil because he is the most reputable groundhog in all the land, so I’ve heard. But I also read a human opinion on this;…

Wedding Soup & Valentine’s Cookies <3

It’s finally here – the sometimes loved, sometimes dreaded, Valentine’s Day. This time, it’s an entire weekend. Thankfully, here in Canada (depending on your province) we have Family Day on Monday, to recharge after this weekend of either romance, loathing, or indifference. Some people hate Valentine’s Day, and I get that. But I love to…
