Sometimes I find that it’s best to keep things simple. I’m a big time planner when it comes to food; I always try to plan out each meal ahead of time to make my life a little easier. Most of my Sunday mornings are spent at the kitchen table flipping through cookbook after cookbook to decide what I want to have on hand and eat over the course of the upcoming week. Based off of my decisions, I compile a list of ingredients to stock up on. In my mind this is a wonderful system, but my family seems to find it bizarre and unrealistic (I beg to differ).

This week has been a whirlwind, I’ve been constantly on the go with hardly any breaks. This morning I slept in until 10:30, which, if you know me, is unheard of. Continue reading “Banana & Carob Breakfast Blend”
Over the summer I worked for a local catering company preparing food for events as well as for the store. This is one of the main salads that I, along with my coworkers, assembled numerous times over the course of the summer.

I am a lover of salads. They are always my go-to lunch and my go-to dinner if I’m feeling lazy and don’t want to cook. Part of what makes salads so great is the huge variety that’s out there. Think about it, there’s chicken salad, Caesar salad, pasta salad, cooked salads, raw salads and about any other type of salad that you could possibly imagine. I also love the wide varieties of dressings that are available o take your personalized salad to the next level. This is an easy and creamy dressing without any of the actual cream.

You’ve probably noticed my love for breakfast foods by now. I especially love breakfast foods that are easy, like overnight oats. These are great because all you have to do is mix all the ingredients together the night before, pop ‘Em in the fridge, then enjoy them the next morning (after taking a million pictures of them if you’re like me). I always like to mix up the flavour of my overnight oats to add some variety to my routine. This combination is great for the summer when peaches are in season, but feel free to play with this and find what you like best. Continue reading “Ginger Peach Overnight Oats”
