Roasted Carrot & Chickpea Buddha Bowl

I love Buddha bowls. There’s something about throwing all of your ingredients together in a bowl that I love. Maybe because it’s simple or maybe it’s the roasted vegetables that I love so much. This roasted carrot and chickpea Buddha bowl is an example of the meals I make on a regular basis.  When I cook without making a specific recipe, I rarely make the same thing twice. I usually just use whichever ingredients I have left in my fridge and hope for the best. This meal is a perfect example of a meal I’ll make at home when I’m not following a recipe. I love roasting vegetables and making a bowl with hearty ingredients and a flavorful dressing. I made this one a few weeks ago when I…

Marinated Tofu Sandwich + Salad

A short little post for a good little recipe. This marinated tofu is all I’ve been craving lately. Yes, I do crave tofu and vegetables sometimes. What I really mean is that I’m slowly starting to crave those fresh, spring recipes. It’s about time! It felt like a long winter around here (I’m not even sure it’s done yet), but I’m finally seeing the end of it! The sun is shinning outside and we’re starting to get temperatures above 0ºC, so all is good. It was also Shaun’s birthday Saturday and mine is next week, so April is an exciting month around here!  Now this tofu. If you’re looking for an easy lunch or weeknight dinner, you need to…

Basic Spiced Chickpea Stew

Say hello to my new go-to weeknight dinner.  At this point of my internship, there’s no time to waste on complicated meals. For that reason, I’m turning to quick recipes that are done in under 30 minutes. Who doesn’t like a quick and easy recipe?! This chickpea stew is not only easy, but it’s also budget friendly (hello legumes, canned tomatoes, rice, onions and spices!), wholesome and filling. It’s perfectly spiced with cumin, smoked paprika, oregano, turmeric and chili powder, but feel free to add a pinch of cayenne if you want a bit of a kick – Although I love flavor, I’m not a fan of spicy food, so this recipe is on the mild side. Here’s how it goes: Simply cook your…

Creamy Mushroom and Dumpling Soup

I’m exhausted.  Who can relate? It probably doesn’t help that we lost an hour of sleep last weekend, but to be honest, this internship is getting the best of me. With only a few months left, I feel obligated to give it all I have. It seems however that the more this internship goes on, the more tired I’m getting and the busier I get. I have so many recipes to share with you guys, yet so little time to write a post. I suppose there’s something about working over 40 hours a week, spending a few hours every night studying, then taking some time to exercise and develop some recipes that can make a person exhausted. So instead of being the perfectionist that I’ve always been, I&#8217…

Cheezy Whole Wheat Spiced Garlic Flatbread

It’s the Super Bowl weekend and I’m sharing a last-minute recipe for the occasion.  The truth is, I couldn’t care less about the Super Bowl (sorry, it’s true). I’m not one to watch sports and honestly, I don’t even own cable. My television time is limited to a couple of Netflix shows, so owning cable felt like a waste of money for us. Shaun however, is a big football fan. He did play football in high school and unlike me, he will be watching the Super Bowl.  So for those of you who are planning to watch the big game, I have a great healthy recipe for you to try! I know that people don’t usually care about anything being healthy during the…
