Vegan BLT

A bonus to sitting to the left of my grandfather was the endless buttered bread that came my way throughout every meal. It trained me well for my love of sandwiches!  There isn’t much that can not, and does not, become a sandwich in this house.

Bye Tampons!

Is it expensive to be Vegan?

We often hear that being a vegan is expensive. I am here to tell you that this is not true. Here's why. We often talk about vegan nutrition as being expensive, it is because we think that vegans are buying luxury foods, such as a non-vegan who buys lamb from time to time, but this is not the case. An plantbased lifestyle is the least expensive lifestyle in the world. The vegan diet consists mainly of legumes, lentils, rice, vegetables, fruits, seeds and pasta, which are the cheapest foods on the planet.

Gorgeous Fall Salad

Squash, specifically butternut squash is in abundance during the fall. I love adding it to salads because it adds fibre, potassium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and so many more nutrients.

Fibre also helps balance your blood sugar levels, which is important to help avoid that afternoon crash.

Do you see what I C? (Vitamin C, that is)

It is considered an antioxidant that is vital to your body’s healing process. Because our bodies do not produce Vitamin C we must look to our diets to maintain our recommended intake.

Bee Pollen: An Antioxidant Powerhouse & Recipe for My “Glow From The Inside Out” Energizing Superfood Balls

One of my favourite toppings for granola & fruit breakfast bowls, dairy-free coconut yogurt, almond or cashew cream, smoothies, chia puddings & oatmeal is bee pollen. You’re probably wondering, what on earth… she uses pollen as a topping? Well, not quite the kind that floats in the air & makes you sneeze if you have allergies. We’re talking bee pollen, an antioxidant-rich powerhouse & superfood with so many health benefits. I always describe it as “honey on steroids”… in other words, it has all the benefits of honey amplified in a more potent & concentrated form.

Pumpkin & Banana Smoothie

We made some Pumpkin & Chocolate Chip Oat Bars last night and didn't use the whole can of pumpkin. Soooo... I decided to make myself a smoothie with the rest this morning. Little did I know, it would end up being one of the most delicious smoothies i've ever made. I know it's typical for Fall and everyone is sharing pumpkin recipes, but I don't care! You need this in your life!

There are few things for a vegan that are more exciting than finding the freshest summer produce at the local grocery store, but growing your own is that one step further in connecting to the healthy foods that sustain you.
