I am a lover of breakfast. That is a true and simple fact. It is hands down my favourite, and most creative, meal of the day. Naturally, because of my love for breakfast, I tend to lean mostly towards developing breakfast recipes and posting about my breakfasts. The truth is my other meals are just as good as my breakfasts, but for whatever reason I am either too lazy to write down the recipes or to photograph the finished product therefore resulting in no new lunch and dinner posts. I have decided that that should change. It is now my mission to bring to you more main course styled recipes to satisfy all the dinner lovers out there.

Last night was wild! It was my senior prom and, well, it definitely din’t disappoint. After a long night of dancing, talking and just straight up fun it’s always nice to wake up and cook up a big feel good style breakfast. (Think eggs, hash browns, grease lol). This morning I took a healthier approach to your typical diner style breakfast by topping thinly sliced sweet potato with avocado, poached eggs, nut butter and cinnamon.

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). Meal planning is a great way to reduce food waste and to prevent that dreadful moment where you open your empty fridge with a rumbling stomach and a lack of ideas.

If you know me, you know I have an array of odd food obsessions. Hummus, anything with sweet potatoes, sushi, watermelon, just to name a few. I also adore nut butter, especially almond based nut butters (I’m not a fan of peanut butter). Honestly, I could live off of nut butter. I am known to eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon, not even joking. Continue reading “DIY Nut Butter”
I am a big time snacker. When I get home after a long day my snack is basically a meal. I’m not kidding. That is why it is important for me to keep healthy snacks on hand so that I don’t binge out on chips or something just because they are readily available and require no work on my part to make . Continue reading “Crispy Roasted Chickpeas”
It’s that time of the year; exam season. I know that everyone combats stress differently, whether it be by meditating, eating, crying, or exercising. I personally tame the wild stress beast by baking. As I write this I actually have dough for monkey bread rising in the oven. I’ve been stu(dying) all day and am in major need of some baking therapy. Continue reading “Kale Caesar Salad”
This is hands down my favourite salad that we make at work. Like I’ve mentioned before Continue reading “Broccoli Salad with Thai Peanut Sauce”
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’ve adapted the recipe to make it my own by adding a home made chilli sauce to the mix. Hopefully you all enjoy this salad as much as I do. I was definitely know to take “tasters” of this one.
