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…

Banana Brownies (GF/V/Refined Sugar-Free…almost)

So as you might be guessing from this recipe, I’m having a bit of a hard time breaking up with sugar!  I started trying to cut back a few months ago, and I’ve been finding it pretty hard the last couple of weeks.  Check out my post Breaking Up With Sugar to read why.  I…

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

Peanut Butter S’more Cookies

Just when I thought it couldn’t be any easier to be vegan, I find Dandies Pumpkin flavoured Marshmellows!  I’m mean, c’mon!!!! Granted, I know Vancouver is a mecca for veganism and it isn’t necessarily as easy to go plant-based, vegan, veg-curious, one part plant, etc, in other parts of the country, North America or the…

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…
