Healthy Lunchbox Recipes

Healthy lunchbox recipes. Because soon, it will be back to school (some of you may have already started!). This time of year is a little bittersweet for me. This is my second year not going back to school and I miss it! I know, I’m weird. But seriously, I would much rather study for the rest of my life than work. Considering I could get paid to study of course. Hah! Part of it is that I miss the freedom of university. I miss having a few classes and being free the rest of the time. While I was in university, I could choose when to study, when to go to the gym and when to relax. I had so much time, even if a good part of it was spent studying. You don’t get that…

5-Ingredient Cookie Dough Bites

5-ingredient cookie dough bites. Made in under 10 minutes in a food processor and filled with wholesome ingredients. What could be better?! Seriously though, cookie dough will forever be my favorite flavor when it comes to snacks and desserts. Ice cream, granola bars, energy bites… Anything. Even better when it’s simple and healthy, which is all you’ll see on the blog over the next few weeks. Did you read my last post? The news is out, Shaun and I are moving to British Columbia! We’re moving to the other side of the country in less than 3 weeks. Not to mention that we’re planning a road trip across Canada to get there. I think it’s safe to say that we’re crazy busy. Packing all of our…

Chocolate Chunk Protein Bars

Celebrating the first day of spring with these chocolate chunk protein bars. I know these don’t necessarily scream spring, but I would honestly eat them every day of the year. That, and the salad I wanted to share with you guys today needed a bit more work, so I’m sharing these instead. The thing is, granola bars are my favorite thing to create. For some reason, when I feel uninspired in the kitchen and when every other recipe I make seem to fail, granola bars are always a success. They’re so easy and versatile, I can’t help but create a new recipe every season. These chocolate chunk protein bars in particular are inspired by my all-time favorite seriously addictive granola bars. If you haven’t made those, you’re…

Chocolate Coconut Oat Bars

These chocolate coconut oat bars are my idea of a perfect Valentine’s Day treat. Trust me, your weekend needs these bars, Valentine’s Day or not. Speaking of the weekend, I am so happy it’s Friday! It’s been a long week and I’m excited to finally get some time in the kitchen. Our last weekend was spent in Moncton as we were dog-sitting for my parents who were off to Montreal. My brother was competing in a track and field event, so all of my family was gone. For that reason, Shaun and I had the house to ourselves with Lola (our family dog). It felt so good to be back to our hometown for the weekend. We went to the Farmers’ Market, I went on a few walks with Lola and I…

Healthy Peanut Butter Crunch Balls

I would have shared these healthy peanut butter crunch balls with you sooner, but the truth is, I didn’t have any photos to go with the recipe. That’s the problem with being a food photographer and working full time at another job. You don’t get enough light to take pictures during the week. I developed the recipe earlier this week and I knew I wanted to share it with you guys for the holidays. I know I’m last minute, but at least I got to share the recipe before Christmas! Just before driving home to see our family. And before the freezing rain starts… We’re expecting two storms over the weekend, including 20-30 cm of snow on Christmas day. I guess we’ll have a white Christmas after all! I know…
