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!”
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. I started including some protein powder to help me get enough each day, but I have to say that most of them taste like chalk. Well, once incorporated in this recipe, they make everything taste likeContinue reading “Chocolate Cake Protein Balls \\\ Boule Protéinée au chocolat”
Popcorn Bark \\\ Croquant au maïs soufflé
(Version française plus bas!) I know we probably all went overboard on chocolate during the holidays, but, what can I say, I’m just addicted!

Tofu Bacon Bits \\ Morceaux de bacon végans!

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”
Crispy Rice Treats- yes, they’re vegan!
Yesterday, I found some vegan marshmallows at the Ottawa Veg Fest. I was really excited to try them out to make crispy rice treats, a childhood favourite. There is something completely comforting about this desert. I basically followed the classic recipe, but the really interesting thing is that the vegan marshmallows are perfect! Directly outContinue reading “Crispy Rice Treats- yes, they’re vegan!”
Simple Aubergine Spread
I really like aubergines or eggplants. The texture is so spongy, it is a lot of fun to cook with because it will absorb any sauce while keeping a nice slightly chewy texture. My boyfriend, on the other hand, is really not a big fan of this ingredient. I really wanted to find a recipeContinue reading “Simple Aubergine Spread”
Simple Sprouted Crackers
A few days ago, I posted a few tips on how to make sprouted seeds. Now, however, my fridge is packed with a ton of sprouts, and I need to take care of them before they go bad. One of my favourite things to do with sprouts is to turn them into crackers. They areContinue reading “Simple Sprouted Crackers”
