SWEETPOTATO Curry has quickly become my households go to meal.  It is so easy to whip up, store away and take with you on the go! Filled with nutrients, carbs, healthy fats and flavour this meal will not disappoint. I am always on the go so there is really nothing better than a meal that you can take with you anywhere.  This dish is a true testament that eating healthy and smart does not have to be hard or a sacrifice of flavours.
SBR Do we really need an excuse to treat our other half (lets be real, I mean ourselves)? Ok, good, I am glad we all agree that Valentines Day is not the only day that we should be smothering our bests, family, and loved ones with kisses, hugs and plant based Cheese Cake! Although I do not have a huge sweet tooth I am still so all over this amazingly simply Cherry Strawberry Cheese Cake! It is so simple to make, easy to follow and make without added sugars! Super healthy for you as is it filled with plant-based proteins, healthy fast and yummy naturally sweetened fruits!
udon By now we all know that I love eating healthy food that does not cost us too much time.  This five minute Cilantro Cashew Cream is the perfect dressing, sauce, cheese and spread! I added it to my udon noodles and tarts - but this is just a fraction of the ways you can use this simple and delicious recipe!

Hello all you beautiful people! The time has come that I turn 28! This is going to be a FUND-RAGER PARTY put on by myself (@FoodbyMaria) and Morgan Belle at 80th + Ivy. The event (click here to see Facebook event) is dedicated to my birthday wish. For the second year I have chosen a charity to donate to instead of receiving gifts I don't need. All proceeds for the event will go to Alberta Healthy Services - Calgary Eating Disorder Program. As you know (or might not) I suffered from Bulimia for 6 years and would like to help people still suffering.
GP Confession Friday.  Thats a thing right?  Well I hope so because I am confessing that I love Greek Style Potatoes and that they make my life a better and more happy place.  Seriously, these Greek Style Potatoes are so crispy and crunchy on the outside while staying so steamy hot and soft on the inside.  Certainly mine and Andrews favourite go-to-snack and can be made in such large quantities to please a whole family for your next feast! Truly nothing better than using a natural, organic ingredient to create a plant based, healthy and nutrient filled dish.
CMT1 Well by now you must be able to tell that I have a thing for pasta and really simple recipes. This protein pasta dish fabulous, flavoursome and easy to follow. It takes you 10 minutes to prep your ingredients, 35 minutes to make and probably nothing short of a minute to inhale. This protein pasta dish is particularly special because it packs so many vegetables, spices and protein all in one.
lokai1 How could you not like a vegetable that taste and resemble pasta? I know what you're thinking, you can't.  I agree.  There is really something to be said about getting in your carbs whilst eating such a beautiful and versatile vegetable.  I mean how cool is it that I am using this gluten free veg as a bowl and adding loads of goodness to it to create a healthy, plant based and fast meal?
chickpeapizza As you all know I am pretty into the fitness and health scene so you would expect Pizza to be the last thing I blog about or even create, right? Well you are right, to a certain extent.  Ya, it is just pizza, a sauce and toppings but what you forget is how important CARBS are to me (they should be important to you too). I used to fear carbs more than life itself but now I have come to learn that a little treat, a lot of carb and laughter can really be good for the soul - not to mention my booty and muscle gains. You can balance your life with all the organic, natural, raw and plant foods you can but sometimes vegan recipes can be inspired by the not so healthy pizza recipes in the world.
matchaballs2 Let us prepare ourselves to enjoy dark chocolate truffles coated in Matcha. You will probably eat all 12 at once, but there is nothing wrong with eating antioxidants with more antioxidants! These truffles are made using two ingredients, in one bowl and are easily transformed into a crunchy treat by adding seeds, nuts or your favourite super food powders!
