Simple Pumpkin Cookies!
Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin! It seems to be everywhere these days, and for good reasons! It’s seasonal, comforting and so versatile. We’ve been having some pumpkin soup every week for a while now, and I don’t get tired of how smooth, sweet and nutritious it is. If you know anything about me, however, you know thatContinue reading “Simple Pumpkin Cookies!”
I’ve been away juicing!
For the last couple of months, I’ve had a lot of trouble finding foods that made me feel good and energized. Either the food I craved was too heavy and would make me fall asleep (I took a lot of naps!) feeling like a giant slug, or it was not nourishing enough and would leaveContinue reading “I’ve been away juicing!”
Protein cookies: these are addictive!
My gym stocks Complete Cookies by Lenny and Larry … and these cookies are addictive! I mean, you train really hard and then you get to stuff your face with these delicious cookies. It’s a bit counterproductive, but they are hard to resist! Anyways, when I realized they were not particularly good for you (lotsContinue reading “Protein cookies: these are addictive!”
Coconut yogurt: this time it worked!
I have been trying out different ways to make vegan yogurt, but so far all of my attempts have failed horribly. There is nothing fun about waking up to a weird and pungeant smell and realizing that it is the soy yogurt experiment that has gone wrong… really wrong! Last week however, I realized thatContinue reading “Coconut yogurt: this time it worked!”
Chocolate Cake Protein Balls \\\ Boule Protéinée au chocolat
(version française plus bas!) In the last few weeks, I have been tracking down how much protein I ate.

Well, once incorporated in this recipe, they make everything taste likeContinue reading “Chocolate Cake Protein Balls \\\ Boule Protéinée au chocolat”

Cashew Spread \\ Tartinade aux noix de cajou
So, as I’ve mentioned, yesterday I gave a workshop on veganism. What better way to share veganism than to share food? None, in my opinion! So, I brought some food, and many people asked me if I could post the recipe for the cashew spread. Well, here you go! This spread is delicious on freshlyContinue reading “Cashew Spread \\ Tartinade aux noix de cajou”
Peach and Arugula Salsa\\ Salsa pêche et roquette
Today I was looking for a simple, fresh and delicious appetizer to start off the weekend on a nice touch! This was perfect: mainly local produce, mixed flavours and incredible textures. This is super quick to prepare and so yummy! Here is what you need: 2 peaches, diced (I used white peaches) 1 cup arugula,Continue reading “Peach and Arugula Salsa\\ Salsa pêche et roquette”
Homemade Almond Butter
If you have 20 minutes to spare, almonds and a food processor, you need to make this! I was craving almond butter to spread on some apple slices, but unfortunately I didn’t have any left in my pantry. I did have raw almonds however. After eyeing my food processor for a few moments, I triedContinue reading “Homemade Almond Butter”
