White Bean Alfredo Sauce

December 13, 2016 No comments yet

I have been feeling less than inspired lately with our family meals. Between work, two kids and the Holiday season upon us, our meal rotation was just that…a rotation! Totally not a bad thing, but was leaving this foodie dietitian mom, uninspired.  Keeping things simple is a fabulous way to make healthier choices work, while […]

Sugar Smart Recipes!

October 30, 2013 No comments yet

Fuel up First! Choco-PB-Banana Smoothie Seriously, three of my favorite things,  blended into one delicious glass. The combo of fibre (banana) and protein (milk & pb) keep us full and satisfied! The chocolate milk (sugar reduced version by DairyOh!) makes us feel like we are having a treat! Not to mention has some extra goodness […]

Just thought I’d share a few things I have extra love for right now! – Mel’s Kitchen Cafe! I’m pretty sure I am slowly eating my way through her website.

By popular request, I’m reposting my recipe for “cookie dough hummus!” A great snack option–packed with chickpea fibre and protein, plus just a touch of sweet! Serve with sliced apples! Yum! Ingredients: –          1.5cups chickpeas, drained (1 can) –          Pinch of salt (optional) –          2tsp vanilla –          ¼ cup peanut butter (or other nut butters) […]

Cookie Dough Hummus

November 21, 2011 1 comment

There seems to be a theme lately….cookie dough treats! Healthier cookie dough treats that is! Traditional hummus dips are heavy on the garlic; however, this “dessert” hummus omits the garlic and instead, adds nut butter and a few chocolate chips! Serve at your next party and I can guarantee a few surprised quests will be […]

Mexican Bean Salad

Have a fridge full of produce and in need of a summer-y, meatless and easy meal? My latest concoction involved leftover grilled corn on the cob & a can of black beans! Great for a lunch, evening side dish and very budget friendly–not to mention heart friendly! Beans are a great high fibre, low fat […]

January is a crazy time of year for those of us in the “Health Industry!” When my schedule gets crazy, the first things that seem to go out of whack are my normal workout routines (don’t worry…fur-baby still gets her daily exercise time) and my food prep! (Yes, it happens to the best of us!) […]
