Plum Almond Galette

This post was written in paid partnership with the Dietitians at the Canadian Sugar Institute. As always, all opinions are my own. Have you ever heard the phrase “all foods fit?” In the Dietitian world, we often talk about balanced eating where you can enjoy some “treats” while still focusing most of your food intake on nourishing, whole foods with plenty of fruits, veggies, fibre, and protein! When it comes to free sugar, we know that consuming too much can take the place of food that contains essential nutrients our bodies need to thrive. So yes, we don’t want to overdo it, … Read More

A pile of two bite protein brownies with a hand reaching for the top brownie and a bottle of milk in the background

With 3.5g of protein and <1g of added sugar, these two bite protein brownies are the perfect chocolatey, fudge-y snack! This post is sponsored by Naked Nutrition but, as always, my opinions are entirely my own.  Have you ever wished you could have brownies for breakfast and not feel sick from a morning sugar rush? The older I get and the more I’ve leaned into my body’s wisdom of knowing what foods to eat when, the less I’m interested in sweet foods in the am. I mean, I’m still a sucker for a gooey, caramelly cinnamon bun but I see … Read More

Sourdough Crackers with Flax and Chia Seeds

Baking sheet filled with homemade sourdough crackers with flax and chia seeds

These sourdough crackers are light and buttery, yet crispy! They’re “nutty-tasting” from the seeds and have a rich flavour from the sourdough. When it comes to bread you will almost never find a loaf in my grocery cart. I’ve become a bit of a bread snob and find anything other than homemade sourdough worthy to be eaten! But crackers? Nope… I’m sure my family would be thrilled if I committed to making these sourdough crackers every single time but I still buy store-bought crackers. It’s called balance 🙂 I still have kids to take of and a business to run, … Read More

With 7g protein and 3g fibre, these protein muffins are great to keep in the freezer for a quick, healthy, and filling breakfast! Makes 60 muffins. This post contains affiliate links. As a kid we always had muffins in the freezer, ready to defrost for a quick breakfast. It only occurred to me the other day that this was a form of “batch cooking”… or batch baking, rather. Yeah, my mom was the original mealprepper, 30 years ahead of her time. #mymomiscoolerthanyourmom I pretty much always double a muffin recipe. If I’m going to take the time to bake muffins, … Read More

Chocolate Granola with Cherries and Quinoa #breakfast #healthybreakfast #glutenfreerecipes #veganrecipes #lovecrunch #granola

This chocolate granola only takes one bowl and 10 minutes of prep work! It’s studded with cherries and health boosted with chia seeds and quinoa. There came a time last February when it was suddenly Valentine’s Day and my Instagram feed was blowing up with wonderful heart-shaped kids’ food, and romantic chocolate-covered-fruit recipes. I felt like covering my face in shame. I’m the worst food blogger ever! I’m horrible at planning ahead for seasonal posts. I just go with the flow and cook/bake wherever the wind takes me…. so in December I’m baking Christmas cookies like a normal person, and I’ve … Read More
