Avocado Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Grilled and gooey. The filling is made up of smashed avocado, garlic, spinach, and white cheese. If you’re searching for dairy free options, choose a shredded cheese that melts similar to the real deal. This may take a bit of trial and error. Personally I feel that dairy free cheeses are not quite up to par as the meat free alternatives are. You may find some luck with Follow Your Heart.

Green Smoothie Bowl

You can buy smoothie bowls left and right these days, but they’re so much more satisfying when you make them yourself. The toppings are endless, so get creative. The pineapple masks the taste of the spinach, and also improves your digestion with its many enzymes.

One Pot Chili Mac

One of our most repeated meals. It’s the perfect recipe for when you know you have a busy week ahead and won’t have the time to cook or even think about what I want to eat for lunch or dinner. Make this big batch on Sunday night and you’ll be good to go until Friday. This one is perfect if you are not a fan of beans – they are hidden perfectly among the veggie meat, macaroni, and flavours of the taco seasoning. It also freezes beautifully.

Avocado Spinach Sandwich

These two main ingredients are such superfoods. Avocado is loaded with healthy fats and TONS of dietary fibre. The fat in avocados is called ‘monounsaturated’ fat which is only found in plant foods. Benefits of this fat arose during studies on the Mediterranean diet, which found that those with these high fat diets had reduced heart problems.

One of my favourite breakfasts. Straight forward – coconut yogurt topped with fruit and granola. If you are not a fan of the taste of coconut, luckily most brands mask the taste with different flavours. Coconut flesh is packed with vitamins and minerals that benefit your immune system.

Broccoli Pasta

Broccoli is loaded with potassium, dietary fibre, and vitamin C. The dietary fibre in the broccoli is so high that it is regularly named on “high fibre” food lists.  The balance between sodium and potassium is what allows our kidneys to function optimally. Note: it is possible to have too much potassium, though! Consult with a physician if you would like more information on this balance and why it matters for you.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Muffins

These muffins are chewy, gooey, pumpkin spice goodness, and much healthier than most muffins you will find at the store. Use whole wheat flour to provide fibre and promote your gut health. Coconut sugar as a replacement to regular white sugar provides even more fibre, as it contains a soluble compound called inulin.
