It's super simple salad time! Can I get a YEEEHAW?  Because we're obviously all super excited about this nutritious salad that takes under 20 minutes to makes and like 4 minutes to eat!  This salad is a combination of BOMBMALICIOUS + FABULOSO and will leave you feeling like the sexy goddess you are.
Vegan Tzatziki.  Yep, I did it and before I dive into this recipe I feel like I owe an apologize to my childhood, family and Greek heritage.  I must admit making this dip didn't feel right, it was like I was cheating go my Greek family...but then, I tried it.  Oh my gosh, it's pretty damn close to the real deal and so flavourful.  Suddenly all the guilt didn't feel so bad and I was surprisingly happy that I made it!
Baby it is BBQ Party season and I am damn excited! These Black Bean Burgers are the perfect addition to your next gathering and I promise you that they will be the star of the show.  They are super delicious, nutritious and easy to follow! When asked about these babies you can ensure all your guests that they are made from natural food, vegetarian + vegan and even recommend the recipe for their plant based diet recipes collection! I made these last night for Andrew and he fell in love.  He said that they probably wouldn't have been the same without the homemade Thousand Island sauce so please do not skip out on that!
Hey everyone and welcome to the perfect excuse for me to make pasta AGAIN! I will be making the best carb loading meal for your next Marathon or outdoor activity! It's super healthy, won't require that "detox" and certainly doesn't skip short on texture and bold taste. Photograph above (@cakeyyc) is a picture of that ingredients you will need to pull off this simple recipe. Yep, thats it, just those ingredients!

A large bowl of nutritious goodness awaits you and it is only 30 minutes away!  This on-the-go salad is perfect for busy families, if you're looking to eat better or simply because you love eating anything out of a jar (that's me!).  The salad ingredients are perfect examples of how you can turn natural food into delightful dishes; not to mention help detox your belly from this long weekend!

Easter is right around the corner my loves and I know these baked potatoes paired with their Parsley Cashew Cream accomplice are going to blow your mind! These potatoes are down right heavenly on their own but I highly recommend this dish if you are trying to decrease dairy and are trying to shift towards a more plant based recipe diet. With this dish you don't have to sacrifice tastes to help increase your healthy and wellbeing - cool eh? I mean this cashew cream is made using organic foods, natural foods after all.  How could it be bad? Thats right. They couldn't.
LASAGNA THE BEST DAMN LASAGNA EVER! This meal is going to blow your mind, yes, it takes a bit more time than the usual culprits but it is so worth it! Andrew and I really struggled not to eat all of this after it was made (we had to wait to photograph it), and damn was that ever hard!

hasselfback2 Did someone say Hasselback Potatoes?! Hell yah we did, and they are so good and easy to make.  I feel they are currently the most trendy and sexy way to present the natural food, the potato, and without the stress and fuss!  These bad boys are perfect for a dinner pairing, quick lunch, or even breakfast with delicious lentil in sauce and side of avocado and tomatoes.   The plant based recipe possibilities are endless when you have fun and use natural and organic foods!
OAXACA4 Everyone meet THE OAXACA bowl! This dish was inspired by my friends down at Freshii, and since I eat this so often I decided I should make one for myself but with a few twists! First of all I should mention that the time to make this dish does not include the rice, I made this as a quick and easy meal using leftovers of things like Quinoa, Rice or Bulgar Wheat!
stirfry2 This is the perfect dish to get you started on your plant based diet recipes! It is simple, delicious, made from both natural foods + organic foods and is extremely flavourful! I would recommend this recipe to anyone but especially those who are afraid of a "vegan" diet just to show them how easy it is to make vegetables - in this case - taste fabulous! This Stir-Fry all starts with gorgeous golden onions, and slowly cooking off colourful vegetables till they're soft and ready to be tossed with delicious spices and stock.
risotto2 Calling all plant based diet eaters! Calling all natural food eaters! Calling all organic food fiends! Just kidding.  This recipe is for all to enjoy because not only is it healthy, easy to follow and good for you but it is the perfect way to get started on plant based diet recipes. The patties are so easy to put together because all you need is one bowl and your food processor! Then you create your little patties of goodness and leave it to the oven to finish them off.
