I always enjoy experimenting with new pastas and have really been enjoying this chickpea pasta these days. It provides a boost of protein or can actually act as your protein star in a vegan or vegetarian meal.
Been having a lot of fun with chickpea pasta these day. It’s been a super simple way of increasing my fiber intake and a great way to get some plant based protein in your diet.
The other day I had about 6 sweet potatoes laying around the house getting old and being neglected so I decided to put my tester hat on and see if I could come up with a tasty treat that would go well paired with guacomole, salsa or of course ketchup for you ketchup lovers out there. The first couple batches of these really didn't want to hold together and the importance of truly letting the sweet potato cook became clear.
I have had a spiralizer for a bit now and honestly it isn't something that I use regularly. It is one of those kitchen tools that kind of have a cyclical life in my meal prep tool kit. I get into these kicks where I want to turn all my veggies into noodles, then that settles down after some time I go back to chopping up my veg. Currently making vegetable noodles is my jam!
As of late the idea of reducing my environmental footprint has really been on my mind. Not that I don't normally try to reducing my waste through only buying what I need instead of throwing half of my groceries into the garbage, I have a travel mug that I do my best to bring with me for my daily coffee needs and I have even started packing a reusable straw in my purse to reduce my reliance on single use plastics.
October has hit and fall is in full force. Up here in Canada most are getting ready to stuff our bellies with some turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing, but is there a way to healthy it up a bit and keep you on that healthy track.
Summer is when us Canadians venture into the outdoors to soak up wonderful Vitamin D, get tan lines, and use our grills. A lot of the time we tend to pick up hot dogs which are overly processed food, high in sodium, preservatives and other chemicals. We tend towards these food products because we think of them as more convenient, but there is often a more holistic whole food option out there that is just as easy to whip up for your family or a group of friends.
