Falafel Salad with Lemon Garlic Tahini Dressing

Main Dishes, Salads

I love salads, but I will admit, sometimes I’m left wanting more substance to my meal. Which is why I am head-over-heals for this hearty Falafel Salad!   This salad combines the best of both worlds: heaps of vegetables, piles of healthy Mediterranean flavours, and perfectly cooked crunchy falafels that are so satisfying! It’s a great recipe for the month of … View The Post

Prawn Tacos with Avocado Crema

Main Dishes

Hot weather makes me crave Mexican food.  I’ve only been to Mexico once, so I can’t say that there’s any good reason for this association, it just happens. So when summer hits in the Okanagan like a ton of inferno bricks, out comes the BBQ and a truck load of cilantro.  I eat cilantro like it is salad, seriously!

I … View The Post

Vegetable Soup with Pesto Turkey Meatballs (Gluten-Free)

Gluten-Free, Soups

This soup was created out of one of those ‘oh no, what am I going to make for dinner?’ nights.  I try to keep ground turkey on hand  for a healthy and versatile source of protein, but find that it needs some love in the flavour department.  I had recently made basil pesto (previous post) and frozen it, and a … View The Post

Banana, Peanut Butter and Date Protein Smoothie

Breakfast, Gluten-Free

I love smoothies but I admittedly get tired of the same old fruit and yogurt versions.  This one is an unexpected twist from the norm and is PACKED with protein and fibre to keep you feeling full and energized throughout the morning.  Dates and bananas are both loaded with potassium and fibre, and the whey, milk and peanut butter add … View The Post
