Yearning to enjoy some summer grilling, but looking to keep an eye on your total carbohydrate consumption? I hear you – and I’m here to help! The reality is we quite often get more than enough carbs from tasty beverages and delicious sides (think ciders, sangria, chips & crackers, and fresh fruit). These delicious yet high carbohydrate foods & drinks are in abundance at cook-out type events and are quite often enjoyed socially (and this social connection is absolutely part of health & happy life)… Enter the Portobello mushroom...
Because sometimes all you have is 10 minutes or less - to prep for that August long weekend event/ plan the menu for the annual family picnic/ get dinner on the table, the list goes on… the summer months can be busy ones, I get it. And I’m here to help you get some nourishment on the table when time is of the essence. Perfect as a light meal base, side dish, or starter, salad - featuring ample fresh veg - is a go-to at my house for many reasons.
It’s berry season! And I can’t think of any better way to celebrate than with a simple and delicious crisp. And for me, there are two things that go hand in hand – sunshine and coconut! So here you have it - a simply delicious summer harvest and perfectly coconutty crisp. This recipe is perfect for those busy summer schedules that call for no-fuss, light, yet satisfying dishes (as it requires only a dozen easily sourced ingredients and one bowl to prepare). At the end of this cooking session, you have a warm and comforting inside with a crunchy crisp topping. The perfect plant-based, gluten-free summer dessert!
Generally a highly favoured contribution to most meals (as a starter or a fun and flavourful protein source for your main meal), this eat makes for a great spring potluck or summer cookout appy as it's super easy to assemble and quick to cook. Crab cakes are an undeniably delicious comfort food – but I’d be hard pressed to find a whole wheat, low fat, and high protein variety on a restaurant menu. So let's make our own!
As we close the chapter on Winter and enter Spring, delicious and nourishing comfort food continues to make an occasional appearance on the menu. In light of this, let's add one more nutritious recipe to this section of the toolbox before we transition. And because I have a special place in my heart for food assembly parties (pizza, tacos, burgers, salads...) why not start a new perogy party tradition?! Hey, don't dis it til' you've tried it friends.
