I try to stay away from processed and packaged foods as much as possible. I feel best when my meals start with a pile of vegetables, with some kind of carbohydrate in the middle, and finished off with a protein. The more vegetables the better!
I am not a huge meat eater, so I stick to fish and things like tempeh, organic tofu, chickpeas, and lentils. My husband is more of a carnivore so I always have chicken, turkey and beef on hand for him.
What is always in my fridge?:Fresh vegetables, almond or coconut milk, eggs, always peanut butter, and hot sauce of any kind.
Favourite Condiment:Hot Sauce. Currently, I'm obsessing over Valentina as well as Green Dragon from Trader Joe's in the US. I also always have Frank's Red Hot on hand.
Go-to Protein:Salmon Burgers! So delicious, and so easy.
Favourite Vegetable:At the moment I love zucchini. Slice it up and throw it in the frying pan with curry powder. So quick and delicious, I actually make this for a snack on the regular.
||Meatless Monday|| Buddha Bowl with Magic Green Sauce adapted from pinchofyum In a food processor, throw in 1 deseeded jalapeño, the juice of two limes, half a cup of pistachios, a cup of slightly packed cilantro, 1 avocado, 1/2 cup of water, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 cloves of garlic, 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Blend! Dressing is done! Chop up kale, carrots, cabbage, cherry tomatoes and red peppers, Edamame beans, and place in a bowl. Fry up some firm tofu in a pan, throw it on the veggies and throw on some sauce! Dog in!

Favourite Quick Snack:
I usually chop up a bunch of vegetables at the beginning of the week so when I get home from work and I need something to tide me over before dinner, I can munch on them and some hummus.
Quick Easy Last Minute Dinner:
- Whatever vegetables are in the fridge/freezer, throw them in a pan and sauté
- In a separate pan, sauté garlic and ginger, throw in chicken and cook
- Throw the vegetables into that pan with cooked rice (I usually also always have cooked rice in the fridge!)
- Add tamari, coconut aminos, extra ginger, and chili flakes.
You have yourself a healthy stiry fry, and it's done in only 10-12 minutes!
