I love breakfast. In fact, we grew up having breakfast for dinner on a regular basis and those were my favourite nights! Fast forward to my adult life and zero has changed, breakfast is still my jam. Do you want to know what else is up my alley these days? One dish meals!
Back in university I used to eat the same thing for breakfast EVERY day: a bowl of cereal. Sure, the cereal choice would change a bit, or I would add some fruit to it, but there wasn’t a lot of variety. While I still love a good bowl of cereal, I find that my breakfast, and every other meal, changes … View The Post
I worked evenings during my university days waitressing at this fabulous little place called the Tomato Cafe in Vancouver. It was a fluke that I ended up getting a job there, our dear family friend from Münich that we met one year camping made the connection. I mean, I had no business waitressing in the first place to be honest, … View The Post

I was so excited to partner with Florida Orange Juice this month to create a fresh healthy recipe featuring orange juice! Since having my second child … View The Post
Waffles are a ‘thing’ at our house. Now, I’ve had the same old waffle iron since my university days (translation: a long time ago), so was rather thrilled to get a new top-of-the-line Breville Smart Waffle Maker from Best Buy Canada! They have so many to choose from, but this one caught my eye. Kind of like the Cadillac of … View The Post
I doubt that I need to explain how awesome chia seeds are for your health, but since it’s Nutrition Month, I want to put in a good word for them. Not that they need my help, they’ve kind of been the golden child of the superfood movement! Chia seeds may not look like much, but they pack a big nutrition … View The Post
When I mention ‘hot cereal’ to you, what comes to mind? Likely a bowl full of stiff oatmeal or possibly lumpy Cream of Wheat (if you grew up in the same era as I did…mine was always lumpy for some reason). Breakfast give us SUCH a great opportunity to eat more whole grains (packed with nutrients, including protein, fiber, B vitamins, antioxidants, and … View The Post
