Chewy Oatmeal Zucchini Cookies

It’s been a crazy week. We’re leaving for Gaspésie today after work and I still haven’t packed. I’m counting on the two hours I’ll have before leaving to pack everything and prepare our food for the trip. Lets see how that goes! I wanted to start earlier, but somehow, all of my evenings were packed this week. I spent a whole evening getting a new phone and dealing with the details at the store. Then yesterday I drove down to Moncton to see a childhood friend that’s moving to Ottawa today. Finally, I spent the rest of my evenings studying for my exam that’s coming this November (my last exam ever before becoming a registered dietitian). Thankfully, I already have some energy bites ready for our trip (these and these…

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…

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…

Strawberry Rhubarb & Yogurt Chia Parfait

I’m a dietitian.  I still can’t believe it. I started my job Monday and it still doesn’t feel real. In case you missed it (this post), I just finished my internship and I started working as a dietitian in oncology, psychiatry, cardiology and surgery at the hospital. The first week was all about orientation, but I’m excited to start working by myself next week!  Other exciting news that you may have missed: we’re moving in our new apartment shortly! We still have a week to go before moving, but I already started going through our stuff and started planning how I’ll decorate and organize our new space. I’m obsessed with organization and decor. I love moving so much (most people look at me like…
