Buckwheat Banana Pancakes (V/GF)

I am back with another pancake recipe!  I usually only make pancakes on Sundays, but I made these this past Wednesday since I don’t start teaching until 3:30 pm, and I wanted to make an extra special breakfast.  It was my first day back teaching, and I felt the need to take it slow, to…

5-ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bites

Super simple, your run of the mill energy bites!  They are super quick to make, quick to eat, and easy to bring with you when you’re off for a hike, a day on the beach (although, maybe a little sticky for the beach) or are running out the door and just need a snack.  You…

Dark Cherry Chia Pudding

I recently started getting into chia pudding as a quick and light breakfast or snack because I tend to always have the ingredients on hand.  It’s simple, easy to make, great for meal prep, and nice to take on-the-go.  It’s pretty light, so it won’t leave you feeling stuffed.  It’s great as a pre-workout breakfast,…

Adopting Adaptogens: Chaga Turmeric Latte

This recipe is one the most ingredient heavy recipe in my Adopting Adaptogens recipes but it is my favourite.  This warming milk is great to drink at any time of the day but is especially effective in the evening, after dinner, when you are winding down to go to bed.  Turmeric and cinnamon have anti-inflammatory…

Chocolate Almond Banana Pancakes

I know Valentine’s Day has already passed, but if you’re on the hunt for a special breakfast to treat yourself or someone else, I’ve got just the thing.  This is essentially a dessert for breakfast.  These pancakes are jam packed with yummy ingredients like bananas, chocolate chips, and almond butter.  To really go the extra…

Adopting Adaptogens: Chaga Coffee

Medicinal mushrooms have been enjoying a lot of buzz lately and I am not immune to the hype.  Back in the fall, a local vendor was selling chaga mushrooms at the farmer’s market and I jumped at the chance to start incorporating this superfood into my daily routine.  Chaga, known as “the King of the…

Eggnog Aquafaba Pancakes

Another Sunday, another pancake recipe. I’ve been on a banana pancake kick for the last few weeks but we were out of bananas by the time the weekend rolled around. Instead I had some Aquafaba kicking around from making chickpeas. Aquafaba is the water left over from cooking the chickpeas. It’s got a viscose consistency…

Maple Walnut Banana Pancakes

Somehow, sometime, I’m not sure when, making pancakes on Sunday mornings has become a tradition for James and I.  I can’t seem to settle for simple pancakes though, they always have to be a little spruced up.  This week was maple walnut banana, but last week we had chocolate chip pancakes with raspberry syrup drizzled…

Cleansing Blackberry Ginger Smoothie

After feasting on SO much delicious food this Thanksgiving, I wanted to start my day off with this smoothie to reset for the week ahead; it’s light, fresh and cleansing.  The ginger and turmeric help with digestion, the cilantro and lemon help with detoxifying the system.  The blackberries offer a slight sweet tanginess, which pairs…

Autumn Spice Muffins

Ahhh, the season of pumpkin spice is upon us!  I’ve put a little twist on this old favourite by using Acorn squash puree instead of pumpkin; I had some leftover from making the Sweet and Spicy Acorn Squash Soup.  I topped these babies off with some vegan cream cheese frosting that I had leftover from…
