Slow Cooker Banana Chia Oatmeal

Slowcooker Oatmeal

This recipe is my take on a recipe I found at thelemonbowl.com, which blew my mind! As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve never been one for a sweet breakfast, and certainly not Oatmeal, which is how this Savoury Breakfast Oatmeal Risotto was birthed. But when this recipe pointed out the obvious fact that I could prepare my oatmeal Continue Reading …

IMG_3876

Pretty much from September to December it’s ‘pumpkin spice this’, and ‘holiday gathering that’, not to mention baked goods laced in between. Now don’t get me wrong, I love love these months because they are a foodie’s dream, but sometimes your system needs a little break, right? Juicing is the perfect way to satisfy that Continue Reading …

Vegan Spelt Bread

Spelt Bread

I first had the delight of trying this spelt bread at a friend’s house. We all had a big sleepover, and in the morning she served us this bread with homemade jam and we nearly died. I couldn’t believe she had just whipped this up!

Blueberry Lemon Scones

Blueberry scones

Tea time isn’t complete without flakey, buttery, crispy-on-the-outside and pillowy soft on the inside, scones. Now you might think you said goodbye to these (surprisingly easy-to-make) pastries when you went vegan, but I’m here to tell you that these Blueberry Lemon Scones meet all the above requirements and I defy anyone to call them out Continue Reading …

I am very proud of these muffins because they took me about a year of trying to get them just right. I am also proud because my son goes crazy for them. We usually eat them while listening to the song “The muffin man”. Ha ha. The quinoa makes them a great source of protein. The flax is Continue Reading …

Breakfast Quinoa

I’m not much a sweets person, but this dry and cold weather lately has me craving some stick-to-your-ribs hot cereal to warm my belly. Jay’s stepdad Ralph turned us on to sweet quinoa a while back, so I took it a step further with fruits, ginger and spices, and the result is a delicious and Continue Reading …

I finally made Vegan French Toast using The Vegg! It is by far one of the best vegan egg substitutes I’ve used to date. It even smells like eggs (kinda like a fart, but in a good way!). I followed the simple instructions on the package and the result was the crispy-on-the-outside savoury/sweet goodness of Continue Reading …
