No-Bake Chewy Granola Bars (Nut-Free!)

Is it really back to school next week already!? I’m starting my one year internship Tuesday and saying that I’m nervous is an understatement. I’m hoping that after the first week, I’ll realize how unnecessary it was to worry about it all summer! Hah! Deep down, I know I’m a little excited. Doing an internship is definitely different than learning in a classroom and I know practice will help me become a better dietitian. I’m sure I’ll learn a lot about the job and about myself… Yes, that’s what I say when I’m trying to convince myself that it won’t be that bad. It’s not really working so far, so next week should be fun! *nervous laughter…

Simple Avocado Toasts – 3 Different Ways!

Lately I feel like I’ve been living off avocado toasts. They’re so easy, filling and nutritious, I figured they were the perfect meal while moving in our new apartment. After a while though, plain avocado and lemon on toasts can become a bit boring. That’s when I started mixing things up and trust me, these avocado toasts are NOT boring! I came up with 3 different toasts, so let’s get right into it. My first avocado toast includes strawberries, melted Brie cheese (the best part!), balsamic vinegar and pistachios. I think this one is my favorite. I mean, strawberries, Brie and avocado!? There’s no better combination. Not during summer anyways. If you’re skeptical about adding fruits to your toast, don’t be, it’s the ultimate…

Sugar-Free Backpacking Menu + Energizing Trail Mix!

I would choose hiking over one hour of cardio at the gym any day. I love being able to workout outside. Not only do you get a killer workout, but you get to see beautiful views and breathe in some fresh air. How can the gym compare to this view!? Don’t get me wrong, I love going to the gym! I just prefer to go hiking whenever possible. Thankfully, we have a park 5 minutes from our new apartment and lately, I’ve been hiking and running almost twice a day… Yes, I’m obsessed! I love day hikes, but every summer, we plan at least one overnight backpacking trip. This is usually a 3 day hike on the Fundy Footpath, my favorite trail in New-Brunswick! Check it out if you live near NB…

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites

Life update: we moved in our new apartment! I’m having so much fun emptying boxes, organizing our stuff and decorating the apartment! Yes, I get extremely excited about organization. Sometimes I remind myself of Monica from Friends… I love when everything is in clean. I might be a control freak. I might be. Now I could continue talking about the apartment, but I’ll save that for another time. Instead, let’s get right to the recipe! Today I’m sharing an old favorite of mine. Another peanut butter recipe?!! YES. This might me my last one until next year (I wrote about it in last week’s post), but that could be a good thing. It might force me to try different flavors once in a while… You could say peanut…

Peanut Butter & Chia Jam Overnight Oats

This week, I’m eating as much peanut butter as I possibly can. It’s our last week in Moncton before moving to our new apartment in Saint John! Since our roommate is allergic to peanuts and we won’t be able to eat some for a year, I made all the peanut butter recipes I could in the last few weeks. I saved a few of them, which I’m planning to share with you guys later this summer, but today I’m sharing one of my favorites!   It’s a twist on my all time favorite breakfast: Peanut butter Banana Oatmeal. I can’t get enough!!! In this heat wave though, I must admit that hot oatmeal doesn’t seem too attractive… That’s when I turn…
