mediterranean chickpea salad

For many years I thought that I didn’t like Greek salad. Too salty! Too oniony! Too briny! Swimming in dressing! Fortunately I came to the realization that I’d been eating crappy Greek salads and totally changed my tune. Over the course of my MSc program in nutrition, my cohort of international nutritionists hosted many potluck…

Chocolate Black Bean Brownie Smoothie

A rich and creamy healthy chocolate smoothie loaded with protein thanks to a secret ingredient that you totally can’t taste – beans! Naturally sweetened with just banana and dates, and vegan thanks to plant-based milk, this is a smoothie the whole family will love.

chipotle black bean burgers

The last couple of weeks have been a tad on the bonkers side. There were several really long days and one super late night at the office, the morning after which I dragged my tired self out of bed and gave myself a pat on the back for having pre-packed my lunches for the week…

white bean puree

It’s less than two weeks till I head back to school to start my masters degree in nutrition. I’ve been experiencing the mildest flutters of anxiety which I’m sure over the next week or so will blossom into a full blown panic attack, but for now it’s still all very far away and surreal. We’ll…

white bean tortilla with piri piri

By the time you are reading this I will have gallivanted around the Cinque Terra, and have probably eaten and drank my own body weight in olives, bread, pasta, and wine. Ahhhh. Did you follow along on Facebook? We’re spending one night back in Stockholm before we head to BC, to the place where my soul lives,…
