Super Seed Smoothie Bowl

A smoothie is a typical breakfast for me. However sometimes I find that I need a small mid-morning snack to tie me over until lunch, after a breakfast smoothie. If you are finding a smoothie doesn’t quite tie you over until lunch, you definitely should try out this smoothie bowl – a smoothie with a hearty kick! The addition of nuts and seeds add fibre, fat and PROTEIN to your typical smoothie. The smoothie itself is thicker than your typical smoothie that you’d drink through a straw. It’s also vegan and gluten-free. Give it a try!

Protein Pancakes

Finally!! I’ve been on the hunt for high protein and convenient breakfast ideas that are different than my eggs or greek yogurt breakfast staples. I’ve heard about people incorporating cottage cheese into pancakes and wasn’t sure how I felt about it…however this was a perfect example of ‘don’t knock it til you try it!’ These are so easy to make – I add it to my Sunday Batch Cooking list.

Chickpea Broccoli Burritos

My weeknight dinner staple! Minimal prep work involved and you can multi-task (worry-free) while the chickpea mixture cooks in the oven. The mixture of seasonings kick this simple ingredient meal up a notch! Enjoyed by herbivores and omnivores alike (tried, tested and true!) Inspired by the hilariously delicious Thug Kitchen cookbook.

Creamy Tomato Soup with Italian Roasted Chickpeas

A classic soup so creamy you would have never thought it to be vegan! The roasted chickpeas replace traditional croutons and almond milk adds a creamy texture. I make this soup almost every weekend! Adding this as a side to any meal ramps up your vegy intake – I like to refer to soups as ‘liquid salads’ ;). This recipe was inspired by the fabulous Angela LIddon from Oh She Glows.
