Peanut Tofu Bowl with Carrots and Couscous

I just submitted my last assignment for my university undergrad so I am unofficially done school (yay!). I decided to treat myself to a nice hot lunch. I had made this awesome peanut butter sauce that I was gonna use for coleslaw the other day but that never happened so I used it today instead….

Triple C Salad

Couscous, cucumber and chickpeas. Simple ingredients, delicious combination. I honestly love couscous based salads cause it’s so easy and quick and versatile. So this salad had that delicious c-base, plus a dressing of red wine vinegar, lime juice, oregano, chili flakes and parsley. I didn’t even need salt or pepper this time.  It was so…

Cheeseless Mac n Cheese

So when I thought of making this dish, I knew it would either turn out really well or be a total flop. Obviously I was hoping for the former. And lucky for me, it was a success! I’ve seen cheeseless mac n cheese recipes before but they all have nutritional yeast – I was looking…

Indian Turkey Curry

So this was a very impromptu meal. It started off as cooked turkey breastfeeding that was a little bit dry. Instead of eating it as is, I turned it into an indian curry.  I started off by sautéing onions, carrots and peppers in a big pot. Then I added a few cups of chicken stock…

Fish Filet Sandwich

If you ever had a fish filet sandwich, especially from places like mcdonalds, you know they can be good. But you sometimes feel gross after – cause they tend to be greasy and not very healthy.  I made a better version tonight for dinner. I have a simple breaded filet that I baked in the…

Roasted Red Peppers

I’ve wanted to make these for a while but I think I was too scared to try. I’m happy I did it though. And they’re super easy too. If you’ve never roasted peppers before, they’re super easy. You just throw some peppers (whole, with seeds and all) on the grill and let them cook. You…

Sweet Potato Avocado Toast

This is one of the simplest things ever. It’s really not much more than what the title says. It was just toast + avocado + sweet potato + sriracha. That’s it. Such a good meal – breakfast or lunch. It’s creamy and crunchy and sweet and just delicious. I know it might seem like a…

Skinny Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies but they usually have so much butter and sugar. I found this recipe and I thought it was much better than most recipes out there.  I probably would’ve put a little less honey cause it was a touch too sweet. I like that it uses whole wheat flour and…

Couscous with Bean Salad and Sweet Potatoes

I may have said this before, but I love meals that are all in one bowl and easy to eat. Tonight’s dinner was just that. I have 3 components here which are pretty easy to see cause I made sure they were all separated in my bowl. The bean salad has a few things… black…

Mixed Salad

I really didn’t know what to call this salad. I used the word mixed because it turned out to be a mix of many different things.  I got iceberg lettuce, cabbage, cucumber, bell pepper, dried cranberries, sliced olives, chickpeas and avocado. The only dressing I put was a little walnut oil, red wine vinegar, salt…

Yogurt Bark

I wanted a sweet dessert tonight so I made some yogurt bark. It’s incredibly easy but you need a little patience because it takes some time to freeze up. You can put whatever you like and make it your own. I have blueberry yogurt (spread a kinda thin layer on parchment paper) then place your…

Bean Salad and Veggie Balls

I’ve had both of these things before, but this time it was a little different. Plus I added some avocado cause I’m a little obsessed. I really just love bean salad. This one had black beans, red bell pepper, fresh corn, cucumber, cilantro, lime juice, red wine vinegar, salt, sriracha and sugar. The veggie balls,…
