Shakshuka is a dish best enjoyed at breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner. The ingredients are simple and my guess is you already have most of them. It is the perfect solution to the classic "I have nothing at home to eat" conundrum that usually precedes takeout. Packed with tomato, bell peppers and eggs, your body (and palate) will thank you. 

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 20-25 minutes

If you know me, you know my love for maple is no joke. Last time I posted about granola, I gave you options to make whatever combination your heart desires. This time, I am sharing one of my favourite combinations, with maple syrup to sweeten instead of honey. If you so choose, you can substitute out for your the nuts and fruits of your choosing, while keeping the ratios the same. I like the simplicity of this recipe because l...

So my Bircher Muesli is one of my favourite run-out-the-door breakfasts, but to spice things up as the weather gets crisp I have been enjoying these overnight oats with plum, nutmeg, chia, hemp and greek yogurt. It is still packed with plenty of fibre, protein and fat to keep you going until lunch!

Total Time: 15 minutes

2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk (I use the un...

So, I'm bored. Plain greek yogurt with fresh fruit or granola is just not doing it for me lately and I needed a change. I had no desire to switch to the extra-sweet fruit flavoured yogurts, which often pack 16-20 grams of sugar each (that's upwards of 4 teaspoons, YIKES), so I decided to try making my own compote. As for the flavour, in Ireland, they had so many different yogurt flavours and my all-time favourite was the rhuba...

It's dark in the morning, which means some days I end up staying in bed a little longer than planned. To maintain my regular routine I often make these turkey frittata muffins for breakfast (but really, they are great for any meal). They also freeze well, which makes them perfect for the mornings I wake up late and unorganized because all I have to do is reheat them before I run out the door!

Too much fruit. Too many nuts. Granola is all about ratios. I love the idea of granola with yogurt for breakfast or a post-gym snack to tie me over until I figured out my next meal. It seemed so perfect, except for the fact that I struggled to find a crave-worthy variety of granola. After continual complaining and dissatisfaction with grocery-store brands, I decided to overcome the daunting task of making it on my own (with my...
