Nacho Inspired Mexican Burrito Bowl

Photo Credit Sorry for all the bean recipes lately, but I made a big batch of my Easy Slow Cooker Black Beans recently so I’ve been thinking of all the different ways I can use them! This recipe was inspired by last night’s Grey Cup game. My hubbie was excited to watch, and I wanted […]

Black Bean and Goat Cheese Dip

Photo Credit It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a recipe because quite frankly I haven’t had much time to experiment in the kitchen since Max was born in June, but I made my Black Bean and Goat Cheese dip the other day, and realized it’s not up on the blog! I love this dip because […]

Healthy Holiday Desserts

Since Jack was 10 weeks old I’ve been attending a great mommy & baby fitness class once a week. In the warmer months we did a stroller fit in the park, and now the class has moved indoors to a dance studio. Both classes include an hour workout and songs & rhymes for the kids after, and the […]

Healthy Fresh-Baked Bread

Like I said in my previous post, living a healthy lifestyle is all about finding healthy alternatives to your not-so-healthy favourites. Unlike following a strict diet, this approach allows you to enjoy food again and not deprive yourself or feel guilty after eating. A favourite of mine is fresh, warm bread right out of the […]

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

Sorry for the break in posts, but it’s hard to find time to write while taking care of a 7-month old baby boy – this post took me a week to write – yikes. My dad is starting to come over once a week to play with Jack so I hope to get posts out on a more […]

This time of year always makes me crave fresh, cooling foods, and as I mentioned in my last post; lately it’s all about foods that are easy to prepare, and healthy. The other day I looked around my kitchen, and threw together an easy quinoa salad that is […]
