Sometimes you just want a big hearty burger right? I don't... but these are good either way! Such a healthy alternative, loaded with a complete, plant-based protein (Quinoa) and lots of fibre! It also has Riboflavin and iron. The lentils are also leaded with protein and low in fat and sodium! Red lentils are the most alkaline forming protein out there! (GOOD NEWS FOR YOUR HEALTH!) I ate these with a lettuce bun because the burger itself is almost bread like. In fact, my sister took two as the buns and put the lettuce, cucumber, tomato and toppings in between them and called it and inside out burger! Eat it however you want, you'll love 'em!
I was craving a veggie soup to help knock this cold out of my body so I used whatever I had in the fridge and cupboards and it turned out amazing! Can't wait to have it again for dinner tonight!
It's getting colder!! The leaves are changing colours.. and falling to the ground! Sometimes you just crave a nice warm soup to warm you up! That is how I felt ... so I made this! Its delicious, flavourful and warmmmmmm.
You can put whatever veggies you like but I used:
- 1 onion
- 3 garlic cloves
- 2 carrots
- 2 celery sticks
- 1 tomato
- 3 Kale Leaves
I LOOOVEEE Pumpkin Pie. LOVE. In fact I have a minor addiction to pumpkin spice soy frappuccino at Starbucks... but I am trying to find ways around that. Working and a perfect recipe, but this one is DELICIOUS! And instead of syrups and sugar, its pure, vegan protein!
Easy peasy and SOOO filling! Just put everything in a blender until smooth and then enjoy!! You can add more stevia or sweetener if you want, or more almond milk if you find it too think!
- 4 ice cubes
- 1 cup almond milk
- 3 tbsp pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp all spice
- 1 tsp flax meal
- 2 Scoops of Arbonne Protein Powder
Super easy recipe and perfect for fall!! Pure Veggies with a bit of spice! I love it! You can add whatever veggies or spices.

- 1 Large Butternut Squash

- 3 carrots
- 2 celery sticks
- 1 tomato

I did hair and makeup for a wedding this weekend and was there from 11:30-3.. meaning no lunch. I got home and was about to rampage the kitchen. Luckily I had barely anything left and was in need of a grocery run. I had a cucumber and a yellow pepper sitting there. I wanted to dip it in something!! All I could see was ketchup and mayonnaise and bottled sauces.
I opened the pantry cupboard and saw a can of chick peas. LIGHTBULB! Hummus!! I had a jar of tahini, 1 lemon, garlic and all sorts of spices!! I had a meeting in 10 minutes so was hurrying as much as possible.
1 can of organic chick peas, 1 tsp tahini, juice of 1/2 a lemon, 2 cloves of garlic (pressed), some spices, popped in a blender for about 10 seconds (until smooth). VOILA! So simple and boy, was it ever satisfying!! I'm so glad I had a healthy snack!
You will absolutely love this dinner. It's great to make for a group or just as a delicious dinner! Its all veggies with quinoa! Quinoa ["KEEN-Wah"] is an ancient grain filled with nutrients, essential amino acids and protein. It is one of nature's incredibly formulated, complete proteins!
You can basically use whatever veggies you want to in this recipe and whatever flavors! You could do more of an indian curry flavor, an asian infused teriyaki flavor or a garlic, onion and lemon flavor. For this one, I used Coconut Aminos (instead do soy sauce) with some spices! (omit corn for 30 day detox program)
Avocados are amazing for you. A great source of healthy fat, contains Omega 3, fiber and oleic acid which helps you feel full! They are full of nutrients and antioxidants. So many health professionals are ranting and raving about the importance of adding these powerful little things to your diet.
This batch is a great size for a small get together or to share between a few people for a snack. If you wish to save it for another day, cover it with plastic wrap right against the quac and up the bowl! Try not to leave space for air.
2 Medium Avocados
1 small tomato
1/2 small onion
1 clove of garlic powder or 1 tsp of garlic powder
2 tsp of lemon juice
Blend avocado with beaters or mash with fork. Cut onion and tomato in small chunks. Add all ingredients to smooth avocado and mix. Add more of anything to taste. You can also add a spice if you want it spicier. chili flakes or cayenne would work!
These magical little seeds are AMAZING and sooo healthy!! They are full of nutrients, omega 3 fatty acids (Super important if you aren't eating meat or eggs). They have great sources of calcium, manganese, and phosphorus. They help with weight loss because they expand about 10 TIMES their original size. [~Put some in a cup of water when your hungry and drink it! They will expand in your stomach and you will feel satisfied again!~] When they sit in liquid, they absorb and expand into a gel. This gel helps with digestion, and allows the nutrients to soak into the digestive system! Chia also helps strengthen your teeth and bones and has fiber and protein! They are also great for Diabetics because they help stabilize blood sugar levels and insulin resistance... which also helps fight the belly fat!
My favorite rice! I think im obsessed with everything coconut. Oil, Ice cream, yogurt, milk, shredded in everything AND rice! You can make it as a side to whatever veggie dish of your choice. Its amazing with Bok Choy, Coconut Curry, Stir fry, Steamed Broccoli...Whatever! This recipe has lots of flavor and a bit of bite! Enjoy!
This is such a delicious dinner, filling too! My favorite rice to make is "coconut rice". Check out the recipe for that too, its full of flavor! You can put the Bok Choy on anything you want really; rice, quinoa, brown rice, pasta. I think this nutrient filled, Asian cabbage matches the coconut infused rice best! It is filled with Potassium, Vitamins A, B-6, C and has calcium. Low in carbs and sugar :)
