Tabouleh is such a nutritious versatile dish. It’s great as a side, a perfect addition to salad, and a super star on it’s own. Traditionally, tabouleh is made with cracked wheat. This version uses quinoa instead, making it gluten-free and high in protein.
Everyone knows that you need to have chocolate at Easter (if there were no Lindt bunnies, did Easter really happen?). Nevertheless, I think these gluten free carrot cake Easter eggs are a must as well! I mean, carrot cake just seems like such a natural choice in an Easter menu.
I love baking with coconut flour. Coconut flour is loaded with fibre and heart-healthy fat. Plus, it’s gluten-free, nut-free, and grain-free, so pretty much everyone can enjoy it!
Fragrant fried garlic, soft juicy mushrooms, tender sautéed kale, and bright flavourful pesto make for a truly healthy dish that comes together in only 15 minutes. It’s quick, easy, and delicious. Feel free to add in extra protein to make this recipe even more nutritious.
Falafels and I haven’t always been friends. Even when I was a vegetarian, I couldn’t get into falafels. Every one I tried was often too dry or tasted like cardboard. Sadly, it was looking a lot like the falafel train was going to leave without me. I wanted to like falafels, I really did. They’re…

Sometimes, her mom would pack her onigiri, which are seaweed-wrapped balls or triangles of white rice filled with meat or vegetables. I always got so excited when she offered me…
Being sick could not have come at a better time. I had been feeling under the weather all last week, but as soon as my school break started, my body gave up and decided not to work anymore. My voice is pretty much non-existant. Better now then when my courses were running, right?
I believe that a successful study session (or work session or any time of the day for that matter) always involves snacks. And the best snacks are the ones that are just as healthy as they are delicious! Cue this super simple garlic hummus.
It’s been two weeks since I’ve been back at school, and I’m starting to settle back into the routine of eat, sleep, read textbooks, repeat. Part of that routine though definitely includes enjoying a big jar of easy peasy chia pudding; sometimes in class, sometimes on the bus. I always get odd looks when I bring out the chia pudding jar, but hey — this girl knows the importance of a nutritious breakfast.
