Grilled Squash, Tomato and Zuchinni
All I did was crank up the BBQ, spray the veggies with olive oil and heavily sprinkle Mrs. Dash garlic blend all over. Cover the pan in tinfoil and poke some holes in the top. I let mine roast for over an hour.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Have you guys been seeing this health trend everywhere? I first started drinking ACV a couple months ago because I read online that it can clear up your skin. I struggle with acne flare ups all the time, more so now than when I was a teenager going through puberty. Talk about frustrating!

Vegan Brownie | Recipe

veganbrownie1 veganbrownie2 veganbrownie3

 

Sticky Vegan Brownies

  • 1/2c Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2c Brown Sugar
  • 2tbs Cocoa Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1/4tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2c Chocolate Chips
  • Half of an Avocado
  • 1tsp Vanilla
  • 1/4c Almond (or soy) Milk
  • Handful of Almonds (optional)

Add all dry ingredients into a bowl, minus chocolate chips. Add all wet ingredients in separate bowl and mash together. Add wet to the dry and stir until creamy then add in the chocolate chips and stir until combined. Pour into a greased 8×8 pan and top with nuts, more chocolate or whatever you like! Bake at 250 for 20-25 minutes or until edges are hard. Let cool for 30 minutes and enjoy!

It is really hot in my house so after cutting my brownie up into squares I put them in a plastic freezer bag and kept them in there… not for very long as they were eaten up pretty fast!

Breakfast in this edition of Meal Of The Day! This dish is packed full of flavour and so easy to whip up.

Fried Egg Open Face Sandwich

I had a bit of leftover mixed green salad in the fridge so I fried that with a tomato slice and an egg. Made toast and piled on a piece of cheese, salad, fried tomato, fried egg and dashed on some salt and pepper! That’s it, that’s all.

Meal of the day! Ha I’m so clever! I seriously eat this dish all the time. It’s so easy to cook, store and put together. It reheats well, leaves you feeling full and can last a long time in the fridge. Oh and it’s incredibly healthy!

Quinoa, Edamame, Corn & Black Bean Bowl

I added cayenne pepper and lemon juice for some added flavour. Have also topped this with salmon , tuna and chicken before. Enjoy!

Creamy Avocado Pasta 

  • Gluten Free Pasta

Boil water and cook pasta for 8-10 minutes. Add avocado, garlic, basil and seasonings to magic bullet or blender for a few seconds. Add in olive oil and blend until creamy.

Meal Planning

I really like to eat healthy and as clean as I can. I don’t buy processed or packaged food and I haven’t had fast food in 7 years. When I do eat out on the run I will grab a sandwich from Tim Hortons, or a sub from Subway. I like to plan out my meals in advance and cook in bulk because I work 12 hour shifts away from home and don’t have a lot of time to cook in the mornings or evenings. I recently learned I’m being sent to northern BC for two weeks of work in the bush where I will live on location so I wrote out a meal plan and will grocery shop Sunday and cook at the end of next week. Most of this meal plan is adapted from Cassey Ho’s Blogilates Recipes and some  I found on Pinterest. I will post links to them below.
