If you’re looking for a protein packed, vegan main that’s also gluten-free, you have to try this chilli with cashew cream. It is so flavourful and fresh plus it’s a neat way to incorporate butter (aka lima) beans into a meal. If you’ve been wanting to expand your legume cooking roster farther than black, kidney and chickpeas like me, this is a great dish to experiment with.
If you think this eggplant parmesan looks tasty, trust us– it’s a million times more delicious than it looks! Read on for the recipe of an easy vegan and gluten-free take on an Italian classic.
If you’re on the hunt for a delicious one bowl meal, look no further. This recipe is so simple and it takes nearly no time at all to make (under 30 minutes). Plus, you are getting a complete protein from the quinoa and extra protein from the chickpeas. Read on for the full recipe!
I get asked what all natural beauty/skin care products I use quite a bit by friends and family, so I thought I would quickly post about one of the websites that has helped me as I transition to all natural skincare and make up, please say hello to…
No More Dirty Looks (NMDL) is a website that launched in 2010, it’s also a book and a community for people who are passionate about natural beauty, wellness and healthy living. Founded by co-authors Siobhan O’Connor and Alexandra Spunt, these ladies are queens of green beauty in my eyes. Their book, posts and the website community helped me personally deal with a dermatitis flare a few winters ago (more on that soon…) so I feel like it’s my duty to support and share my love of their site.
Some things you’ll find on NMDL:
I made this simple diary free soup the other day and thought it would make the perfect Meatless Monday dish to share. You only need a handful of ingredients, but it packs a lot of flavour and makes a comforting dish to serve on a cold day. On top of that, you are getting some great health benefits and a decent serving of veggies in each bowl from the cauliflower, cayenne and garlic. Hope you enjoy!
I was recently exposed to Maca Powder, a ‘superfood’ that grows at high altitudes. It has been linked to increasing energy levels and balancing hormones just to name a couple of perks to the flavour, which is why I enjoy adding it to my smoothies. To me, maca powder has a rich nutty flavour, but it can be an acquired taste (Erin isn’t a fan, but I love it). It’s my new favourite smoothie add-on :). Read on for the full recipe and the brands of the powders I use. (more…)
