Protein Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins – Vegan

July 9, 2012

What a beautiful warm weekend we had here. I really wish I could spend more of it outside, but with George and I both on call, other plans needed to happen and they did! I will separate today’s posts. One for these protein packed muffins and another with how my running is going. I want to go into a little more detail on what is happening with the running as this is a health & fitness blog as well as a food blog. But some of you just want the food. And I understand, I rather just go straight to the food sometimes too! 😀 This recipe can be done […]

Lime Cilantro Black Bean Quinoa Salad

May 21, 2012

Look at me? Mrs. Poster this weekend! Must be a record for how many recipes I have pushed out this weekend. My long weekend has been pretty much spent in the kitchen. We are going to Minneapolis, MN next weekend for my husbands birthday and he was on call this weekend, so we kept it rather low key. Which was fine with me! Look what I got done!! This is a rather special post, recently a NEW local blogger friend Courtney from The Fig Tree Blog invited me to join in a virtual potluck. How nifty blogging and the internet are! I was extremely excited to join. Even more so to meet more […]

Sweet Potato Chili – A Winnipeger getting soft skin

April 11, 2012

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter, hopefully not too full of sugar. Didn’t have much over here. We went to my my sister-in-laws for Easter lunch. Kept it pretty easy. It has been slightly colder as of late…I know its only April and I live in Winnipeg. We just have been very spoiled and I think I let it get to me. I have seen many versions of this type of recipe. This is a mixture of all the things I loved from them. It’s wonderful and the perfect thing to warm me up on these slightly colder days. Ingredients: Yields: 6 Servings 1 cup vegetable stock 13 oz can of pinto […]

The Black Bean Burger & A Giveaway!

April 5, 2012

Hey Peeps! (I wanted to spice things up on my greetings) How was everyone’s week? Is anyone as happy as I am to know that this week is short? I can sing and lul all day long knowing I will be spending my weekend in my lulus cleaning my bathroom! Does it make me insane that I am actually looking forward to cleaning the bathroom on my long weekend? Yeah, I am probably a little insane. I take a ton of photos, all the time and they never make it up on here. So for weekend posts I will do it in photos. I know, we all do it. But […]

Lazy Spicy Olive Oil Spaghetti

March 26, 2012

Tis a Monday, I dislike Mondays!  My weekend was really busy. I had some design work I needed to complete for a few clients and we also had a nail in the tire drama incident. Cars are wonderful and a pain all at the same time. I wanted to make something quick and simple for dinner.  I have been making a lot more plant based dinners as my husband and I have been slowly switching our diets. This isn’t to say we are eliminating meat fully, but it may happen on it’s own. This dinner is super quick and delicious. My husband also suggested adding maybe sliced cherry or grape […]

Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes – {Vegan}

March 12, 2012

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine as you will see over the next couple day’s was full of Irish flair and lot’s of Irish booze. I didn’t consume much (other than the required quality control testing) but I sure cooked/baked with it a lot. My “I get to bake with alcohol” face I am so excited to share these recipes with you all. Let’s jump right into the desert. Skip dinner and get to the good stuff!  I’ll admit what is below isn’t the most healthy cupcake around. In fact it’s full of alcohol. But the truth is that I wish I could just take the day off work […]
