Quick Lunchbox Southwestern Quinoa Salad

Today I’m sharing a quick lunchbox Southwestern quinoa salad because lets face it, school starts in 3 weeks. I can’t believe summer is almost over. I’m seeing backpacks and school supplies at the front of every store and a part of me gets excited for back-to-school, even though this is my first year NOT going back to school! I think part of me doesn’t realize it yet. Yes, I was that person who loved school. Honestly, if I could be a university student for the rest of my life, I would. Weird, I know. I must say, what I miss most about university is having the freedom to organize my own time. I loved going to class in the morning, finishing before noon and being done for the day. Of…

Sugar-Free Cardamom Blueberry Muffins

It’s time to start thinking about back to school again and I’m here to help with these little sugar-free cardamom blueberry muffins.  Actually, this is the first year that I’m not going back to school. I still can’t believe it. No more university for me! Unless I decide to go back in the future that is. But for now, I don’t have to get ready for a new semester. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t have to worry about what I should add to my lunch box every day. That’s a constant struggle. Does anyone else hate making their lunch for work or school? I never seem to have a good lunch, unless I have leftovers from the day before… I…

My Favorite Protein Green Smoothie

Looking for a high protein green smoothie? This is my favorite.  This protein green smoothie is inspired by a recipe I made a while ago for Pure Goodness on Instagram. I’ve been making the smoothie non-stop since then, so I thought I should share it on the blog as well! I don’t believe that we need protein powder every day to attain our protein needs. Simply eat nuts, seeds, legumes and other high protein foods every day and you can easily meet your needs. However, I love using protein powder in smoothies when I eat them as a meal. I don’t always use it, but I like to have a little protein boost, along with other filling ingredients. If my smoothie doesn’t have enough protein and fiber, I get…

Peanut Butter Strawberry Swirl Nice Cream with Cookie Dough Crumble

I’m finally sharing the recipe for my peanut butter strawberry swirl nice cream with cookie dough crumble! I shared a picture on Instagram last week and many of you have been asking for the recipe since then. Well, here it is! I meant to share it yesterday, but I got sick and spent Friday and Saturday in bed… I hadn’t felt horrible like that in a long time. I’m not even sure what it was, but all I know is that I couldn’t stand up without my head spinning and feeling like I was going to pass out. I’m feeling better today (thankfully!) and I’m finally ready to share this nice cream recipe with you guys! I know that I’m sharing yet another strawberry recipe…

Nut-Free Strawberry Vanilla Crumble Bars

I’m back with these nut-free strawberry vanilla crumble bars! First of all, happy belated Canada day (and 4th of July)! I’m aware that it’s been only two weeks since my last post, but it feels like forever. I blame it on everything that has been going on since I last shared a recipe.  I finished my dietetic internship. I started my career as a dietitian at the hospital. We moved in our new apartment. I think that was enough to keep me busy over the last few weeks! You may have seen some pictures of our new apartment on Instagram stories. I shared a few behind the scenes during our move and I recently shared some after pictures. We finished unpacking everything almost 2 weeks ago – I love cleaning and organizing…
