Low FODMAP Chocolate Chip Cookies

Low FODMAP Chocolate Chip Cookies

I often find that people either love potlucks or hate them. Either you know the perfect dish to bring, or you spend hours worrying about what is an acceptable dish to bring. You ask yourself: what is considered a big enough portion? Are people going to like the dish I bring? Does it have to be homemade, or is it acceptable to opt for some store bought snacks? Although potlucks are supposed to be a fun get together, they can often be more stressful than desired. In addition when trying to stick to a low FODMAP diet, a whole new layer of stress is added. It can be difficult to distinguish which platters are low-FODMAP and which are not. Especially when your co-worker won’t share that...

Banana Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Banana Chocolate Avocado Pudding

If you are a fan of chocolate pudding… this is a must try! This chocolate pudding includes an avocado and a banana - a great way to get in some fibre, and whole foods. Compared to store bought pudding - it cuts down on added sugar, and if you have a milk allergy or intolerance, it's also lactose free. It's a great vegan alternative to a milk & sugar based pudding the whole family will love. In addition, the pumpkin seed butter adds a little protein to this dessert, in addition to a satisfying twist for the taste buds! It is super simple and quick to make - I whipped mine up in 5 minutes flat. Put all the ingredients into the blender and press the button. Next time you are craving...

Banana Tofu Muffins

Banana Tofu Muffins

This is definitely my FAVOURITE muffin recipe! It is my favorite snack to make in bulk and store in the freezer. This quick nutritious snack is great to grab on a busy day! These Banana Tofu muffins are filled with fibre, protein and even essential omega-3 fatty acids. Could it get any sweeter than this? I know what you are thinking- tofu in a dessert? That does not sound sweet. But WAIT. I want to share a little story with you and express why dessert tofu is a great addition to your favourite desserts. When I was studying about the importance of protein at Mount Royal University my professor asked the class “who in this room likes tofu?” Not surprisingly, only a few raised their hand. I didn’t. I knew...

Healthy Chocolate Zucchini Lentil Loaf

Chocolate Zucchini Lentil Loaf

Chocolate Zucchini Lentil Loaf Hey all! I'm sure many of you know, but I'm taking part this year in Pulse Canada's Pulse Pledge! For those of you who DON'T know, it's the International Year of the Pulses! When I started participating in this amazing movement, I had an influx of questions. What's a pulse? How do you cook them? What's your favourite way to eat them? How can they help my nutrition? Well. I have all the answers for you! Check out my post talking ALL about what a pulse is HERE >>>> In the mean time, I wanted to make a fun pulse recipe. I rarely bake. Mostly because I don't like following directions. But I made this cake, and couldn't stop eating it. I think my father-in-law...

The Best Pumpkin Chia Pudding

The Best Pumpkin Chia Pudding

Pumpkin Chia Pudding For those of you that follow me on Instagram - you know that I've been cookin' up a storm in my kitchen with pumpkin! That's right - as soon as September rolled in and the leaves started to turn, I decided to whip out this delicious canned ingredient to add to my Fall cooking repertoire. I was in a dessert-y mood - however, I wanted a healthy alternative. I had initially thought maybe pumpkin muffins or an oatmeal bake, but I had a hankering for something a bit more dessert-eque. Voila! I whipped up a batch of pumpkin chia pudding. Paired with a 5% vanilla greek yogurt and it's SERIOUSLY like eating pumpkin pie filling. A perfect high fibre dessert as you watch...
