The mermaid and unicorn trend have been taking the internet by storm. People have begun making mermaid themed things ranging from food to clothing. Something about the beautiful mix of colours and iridescent details brings these mermaid things to life. One of the more popular and new items that have been introduced is mermaid toast. There’s no surprise to why this one creation has caught so much attention, it’s so elegant and beautiful! So I decided I’m going to take the challenge and create mermaid toast!
I love vegan food because it’s so versatile, healthy, makes you feel good, and aesthetically pleasing. I partnered up with Old El Paso to try my hand at making some vegan taco fillings because you can never have enough taco recipes! I’m actually so excited for this collaboration because I’ve always ran to Old El Paso for taco night supplies, haha.
So, after many trial and errors, I have 3 recipes to share made out of: lentils, rice, and cauliflower. If you want a video, I’ll have it linked at the bottom of this post.
I was in quite the dire situation with little to no food in the fridge and pantry. I wasn’t going to be grocery shopping anytime soon, so I needed quick meal I could make out of what I had on hand. And of course, the one thing that you can depend on is rice balls or onigiri.
Onigiri are rice balls formed into either spherical or triangular shapes and wrapped with nori. I obviously didn’t have the traditional ingredients like sticky rice or nori, so I altered the recipes quite a bit. After making onigiri, I have come to learn that it is not as easy as you’d think it is and I may need A LOT of practice before mastering the art. I actually ended up using too much rice and too little filling, making each bite full of rice. I also found that because I am a beginner at making onigiri, it was VERY time consuming. If I’m starving as I was in the video making it, I’ll just chuck all the fillings into a bowl next time.
Popcorn is one of my favourite snacks. I love it because it is crispy, low in calories, and tastes good by itself or mixed in with toppings. I originally shared with you one recipe in my healthy late night snacks video a while back. It wasn’t exactly a ‘recipe’, but more like just slathering Sriracha on top (which by the way tastes amazing). Since then, I’ve been experimenting with what I’ve got in my kitchen to see if I can more different flavours I can share with my friends since not all my friends can eat spicy. Any excuse I have to make healthy snacks, I will take it! So here are some of my favourite popcorn recipes:
I’ve been eating healthy for a while, so I’ve had my fair share of salad dressing experience. I still do enjoy a salad, but I prefer many other things than that. Although, I do have to mention, salads at restaurants taste bomb. I’m assuming it’s because they have far more variety in ingredients than what I have in my fridge (I’m a lazy girl and I don’t like going grocery shopping for multiple items, what can I say?) . Now because I don’t have many ingredients in my fridge, I understand if you don’t either. To help you lazy buddies out, I’ve got 4 healthy & simple salad dressing recipes. Most likely, you will have most of these ingredients in your fridge or pantry. If you don’t, well… They’re essentials, so you should get on it!
Now, I go through a lot of phases when it comes to healthy eating. And when I say that, I mean I have a very select few dishes I always make when I want something to eat that’s full of flavour and “special” because it’s not just quinoa and whatever dish is on the dinner table.
Making healthy meals and trying new recipes is so recreational and therapeutic to me. it’s also very adventurous because you don’t know how it’s going to taste or turn out.
Halloween is all about sweets, candy, chips, and everything that would upset our bodies and rot our teeth. For the children, and for us, it can’t be good at all. I’m trying to eat healthier, so all that it a no-no. Instead, I decided to play in the kitchen to find out what I can make that’s sweet, healthy, and still taste pretty damn amazing. Each of these recipes are slightly similar to one another, making it easy to make all of them. I hope you enjoy them!
One of my favourite healthy halloween treats is devilled eggs. They are a great source of protein, and you can adjust the taste to whatever you want it to be. If you feel a little spicy, add some hot sauce. If you feel more savoury, mix in some chives or coriander. The possibilities are endless! Adjust the recipe to your liking since we all like something different!
These have to be the cutest healthy Halloween treats that I have made this year. They are my absolute favourite and SO EASY to make. Not to mention it’s great for kids! With cute faces smiling at you, what more can you want? This is also great for making with the kids. Give them a sharpie and let them draw the faces on the disposable shot ups themselves! let their imaginations run wild!
There are quite a few variations of this recipe that I have compiled to achieve whatever your taste buds prefer.
When it comes to being a student, trying to avoid the freshmen 15 is not an easy task. Trying to get all your vegetables and nutrients into one meal while making it compact and portable can be a challenge. The best lunches I find are the ones that require no heat because you can literally pull … Read more
