I feel like as summer comes, things just become busier. I want to be outside almost all the time, which usually means more hikes, camping, runs, and walks and less meal prepping. Yes, that's right- even dietitians don't always meal plan and prep (we're just people!)

That's where this recipe comes in. If you were to ask my parents what my favourite food is, they would probably say greek salad. I don't even remember when my dad started making it but I love the crunch and acidity of this salad! On days w...

I realized that I haven't posted a recipe in a while so today I'm posting my current favourite breakfast- chai spiced pear oatmeal! It's high in fibre and it's got protein and healthy fat to keep you going during the morning and can be made gluten-free and vegan! Best of all, it's delicious! I like to make a batch on the weekend without heating like overnight oats then heat it up in the morning before work for a quick and easy breakfast!

On those days, it's nice to have something quick, nutritious, and filling like this bruschetta pasta. It's great with a salad or raw veggies on the side or you could add some greens to up the veggies and have it on its own!

I had written up this recipe a while ago and hadn't gotten around to posting it. I was looking through drafts and found it! When I was updating it, I was doing the elimin...

It's been a little while since I posted a recipe so I figured I would share my all-time favourite oatmeal recipe! Pumpkin gets all the attention this time of ye

So I find that when talking to clients about healthy snacks, many of them feel like there are limited options and that they eat the same snacks over and over again. So today, I'm posting a recipe for one of my favourite snacks: Dessert Hummus!

 Yes, that's right, I said Dessert Hummus. Lots of people love hummus and it's an excellent option as it's made with chickpeas, which are loaded with fibre, folate, iron, and plant-based protein. Do keep an eye on portions though, as store-bought hummus tends to...
