Spring Fling Risotto

By | Dinner, Gluten-Free, Lunch, Spring | 2 Comments
Risotto. It sounds kinda fancy but it's about as easy to make as a box of mac and cheese once you've done it a few times. Promise. When we started eating more whole, fresh foods both brown rice and  quinoa became a staple part of our meals and before long I was alternating between them almost every other day. As much as I love both of them a plain pot of grains can get a little boring night after night. I've been experimenting with simple...

Gluten-Free Quinoa, Bean + Corn Casserole

By | Autumn, Dinner, Gluten-Free, Mealtime Rhythm, Picky Eaters, Spring, Summer, Winter | No Comments
Today I’m sharing a super easy, one dish, family friendly quinoa casserole with you. It’s great for any busy weeknight and can be made the night before and popped in the oven the next day. It also freezes fantastically and I often make a second dish of it to take out on a particularly full day. It's also the perfect dish to bring to a friend in need, with a new baby or a new neighbor. Play around with the...

It’s just such a simple truth. Setting an intention for better eating is a wonderful start but for most of us it needs to be accompanied by a solid plan - or schedule -  for it to...

Healthy Creamy Broccoli Salad + Lemon Tahini Dressing

By | Dinner, Spring, Uncategorized | No Comments
You know those broccoli salads drenched in mayo that are at every big family gathering? I have a confession to make. I absolutely love them. But my tummy doesn't and it let's me know right away... and for many hours later. I knew there must be away to enjoy this delicious dish without the awful aftermath so I've recreated it without the heaviness of dumping in an entire tub of the good 'ole white stuff or burying the broccoli in a...

Kale and Quinoa Minestrone {Gluten-Free}

By | Becoming Minimalist, Dinner, Lunch, Mealtime Rhythm, My Kitchen, Spring | No Comments
One of my most favourite dishes to make is a simple soup. They're such an easy way to pack tons of veggies into a delicious, one dish (hallelujah!!!) family meal. And soups are incredibly forgiving.  Don't have beans? Swap for chickpeas. No zucchini? Use celery. This recipe is in my meal plan at least once a month but changes slightly throughout the season based on what's fresh from the farmer's market, veggie boxes or the store. It's so versatile you can make it...
