Brownies… again

Ok so here I am again posting about brownies… a window into my life 🙂

An accidentally cool swirl!

My littlest is doing her best to live off of chocolate… getting it into as many meals a day as possible and will use tears as a weapon if necessary. Obviously this is every mom’s dream come true and even better if you are a nutritionist right! LOL

I do wonder if I am losing the 80/20 balance that I strive for with her and her chocolate obsession. I try to incorporate healthy chocolate recipes into her life as much as possible… also she likes to cook and bake and with me, so who doesn’t love a helper 🙂

Yes these brownies contain chocolate chips (non-dairy of course) and yes these brownies contain maple syrup which is basically just liquid sugar BUT for the balancing act they also contain black beans, dates, ground flax and peanut butter!

I’m calling this a win, she will eat some fibre, she will eat some healthy fat, she will eat some protein and she will eat some chocolate.

Noodles made of peas? …yes please!


These noodles are made from green peas… 100% green peas! This means that when compared to most store bought pasta’s they are a great alternative.  They do have an asian glass noodle feel, but have virtually no taste of their own so you can cook them in any sauce you like and they will soak up the flavour!  Today I had a craving for garlic noodles cooked in veggie bouillon.   I sautéed zucchini, broccoli and of course lots of garlic in a few drops of sesame oil and my favourite spice mix from Costco…Costcospice

I then added a scoop of vegetable bouillon, a splash of water, the pea noodles and put the lid on for just a couple minutes.  This meal is FAST!  start to finish including chopping 10 minutes.  Give it a try, it’s loaded with immune boosting garlic, inflammatory cruciferous broccoli, fibre and the countless nutrients packed into zucchini.

**This just happens to be gluten free, yeast and soy free for those of you who benefit from eliminating those from your meals.**  

Feeling Forgetful?

Blueberries help you remember! It’s berry season which means that these delicious little guys full of polyphenols and antioxidants are cheap, fresh and extra delicious. Along with their ability to lower blood pressure and provide healthy fibre they also improve long term memory. So don’t forget to eat your blueberries! 🤔💡🍇
