Looking for a new snack idea that is easy, fun and super delicious? Then try this berry chocolate yogurt bark! This recipe is probably one of the easiest ones we have shared but we LOVE it. You can easily customize it with any toppings that you like or try changing the flavour of the yogurt to mix things up a bit! We kept it simple this time by choosing a plain yogurt and adding some maple syrup to sweeten it. When choosing a yogurt we like using Icelandic or Greek yogurt because they are higher in protein compared to other yogurts plus they have an irresistibly creamy and thick texture! What ..read more

Creamy Carrot, Yam Soup

Soup is such a great healthy option for lunch or dinner, as you can add so many veggies to help incorporate more vitamins into your diet. I love this soup because it's easy to prepare and super yummy. There are so many nutrients in this soup. The yams and carrots provide potassium, dietary fibre, vitamin C and vitamin B6 to name a few. It also has celery which is key for a soup base when sauteed with carrots and onions. For the broth of the soup, if you want to keep it very simple, you can just use water but you will want to season it well with salt and pepper. If you want to add a bit more f ..read more

This recipe is so easy to make, tastes great, and is a great alternative to conventional chips. I suggest making a large batch on Sunday and eating them throughout the week as a delicious crunchy snack. Kale chips are great because kale is full of vitamins such as vitamin C, B6, and magnesium. Per cup, they also contain some potassium and fibre. They taste great sprinkled with nutritional yeast which adds a delicious cheesy flavour. I love pairing these chips with a soup or sandwich for lunch or just eating them on their own for a quick, on-the-go snack. They’re perfect to throw in your bag t ..read more

These are the fudgiest brownies ever; I highly recommend trying them even if the idea of black bean brownies isn't for you.

Who else loves creamsicle popsicles?! We decided to take this delicious sweat treat and try to replicate it in a smoothie and we think we got pretty darn close. This is definitely going to be our go-to smoothie moving forward cause it really is just so delicious. This smoothie is extra creamy and thick because we used a frozen banana and rolled oats. Pro tip: peel and freeze your mandarin oranges overnight before adding them to the smoothie for an even creamier texture! Ingredients: 2 mandarine oranges (frozen if you want a thicker smoothie) 1 frozen banana ¼ cup plain greek yogurt 1-2 tsp h ..read more
