It’s Officially Soup Season!

Photo Credit Soups and chillis are some of my favourite recipes to make because they are “one pot” meals, and I love making anything that allows me to prep, chop and cook ahead of time.

Mac and “Cheese”

A big part of my job as a nutritionist is finding healthy alternatives to classic (not-so-healthy) favourites, like mac and cheese for example.
