My Go-To Avocado Toasts + Exciting News!

In 3 weeks, I’ll be working as a clinical dietitian! I got selected to work in cardiology, oncology and surgery in the largest hospital/cardiac center of the province.

Creamy Tofu & Avocado Pasta (Oil-Free!)

It’s finally summer in Canada and that means I can eat all the fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs from my parents’ garden again! YAY for free food! Since they had fresh basil, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to make my avocado pasta again. This is a recipe I’ve been doing every summer since I was 16 years old. It’s a delicious mix between pesto and a creamy Alfredo sauce. What I did differently this time is I added protein. Not chicken like I used to do sometimes, but tofu! It’s blended right into the sauce and it packs over 14 grams of protein per serving without tasting like tofu! One serving also has 10 grams of fiber and some healthy fats from the avocado, all under 400 calories! If you want even…
