Springtime Strawberry Lime Mango Crisp (Vegan + GF)

Dear Mom, If we lived close by, I would make you this strawberry mango crisp for Mother’s Day brunch. It’s pretty, bubbly, and sweet, with many different layers. Just like you. There’s a nutty layer too – wink, wink. (Two teenage girls in the house can do that to a person!) When I think back […]

My Prenatal Supplements

Like most expectant mothers, my pre and postnatal nutrition is very important to me. Last fall, I started reading about nutritional requirements for a healthy pregnancy. I was already taking some of these vitamins on a fairly regular basis before (such as B12, DHA, and Iron), so it was really only a matter of adding […]

Sample High-Protein Vegan Menu

Ever wondered what 70 grams of protein looks like on a plant-based vegan diet? I know I have! After I wrote my Prenatal Supplement post, I received requests for a post on protein so I thought this would be a good follow up post. When I found out the recommended protein intake for pregnant women […]

Two-Layer Raw Chocolate Brownies

We’ve been having a total love affair with these raw brownies for the past couple weeks. A little nibble here, a little nibble there. I’m actually amazed that they’ve lasted this long, but just a small square is enough to satisfy my chocolate cravings. That’s how you know a chocolate dessert is the real deal. […]

Nursery “Before” Pictures

After a struggle to come up with a color scheme for the nursery, we’ve finally narrowed it down to a couple options – and also decided on a layout too. This is major progress for us because Eric and I are both the most indecisive people on the planet! We have a lot of fun […]

Moroccan Yam Veggie Burgers with Cilantro Lime Tahini Sauce

The original plan for today’s post was to share this triple layer carrot cake. I was hoping for a birthday miracle – maybe just this once it would work on the first try? Yea right. Three trials later, I don’t want anything to do with cake. (Let’s be real, that probably won’t last more than […]

Friday marked my last birthday before I’ll officially be a mom. Crazy stuff. I can only imagine how different our lives will be this time next year. I said to Eric that I just wish it was time already because I want to meet her so much. I keep picturing her in my arms and […]

Feel Good Hearty Granola Bars

I’m already starting to think about how I will fuel myself (quickly) after the little bambino arrives this fall. I’m not one who functions well with long periods between meals, so planning in advance is going to be my best ally. The healthier and more balanced, the better I‘m sure I’ll feel. Bring on the […]

No-Bake Almond Joy Granola Bars

It appears I’m on a granola bar kick this week. and I can’t be stopped. But I didn’t think you’d mind too much? Experimenting with granola bar recipes (and flavours) is one of my favourite things to do. It’s rare that I don’t have a bar tucked away in my purse for “emergencies”. You know, […]
