Meal Prep & Planning for Busy People

As a society we continue to get busier and busier, and along with this we are moving away from prepping and making our own meals at home. This means we tend to rely on going out for food more often, not making the best choices when we do, and *needlessly* spending $$$ on food delivery services. But, does our busy schedule NEED to get the best of us and sabotage our eating habits? No, I don’t think so. It might just be as simple as making meal prep and cooking a priority, along with some simple hacks. Of course, it goes without saying there are SO many benefits of making your own meals at home.

Lemon Blueberry Muffins (low sugar, grain free with almond flour)

Are you in the mood for some muffins? Well I have a treat for you. I made this recipe last weekend and it was absolutely DELICIOUS. I don’t often bake with almond flour, but when I do, the product always comes out super moist and naturally sweet. If you are watching your carb intake, these recipes offer a nice low sugar treat when the cravings strike. Most of the sweetness comes from the almonds and the blueberries, and only a modest amount of sugar.

An Everyday Superfood: 3 Reasons Why This Dietitian Loves Prunes

Prunes, also known as dried plums, make a tasty sweet treat, and have a variety of health benefits, some of which may come as a surprise to you. Most prunes come from California, where the fresh plums are grown in optimal sunshine and soil quality, leading to an exceptional fruit product. California prunes (aka the highest quality of dried plums) can be found under multiple labels at your favourite grocer and are relatively inexpensive.

Edamame Hummus

Hummus is a versatile food, making it an ideal plant-based staple in any healthy diet. This non-traditional hummus recipe is made with edamame beans, immature soybeans that are harvested before they start to harden. Edamame beans are very high in protein, complex carbohydrates and minerals such as magnesium and calcium.

Dreamy Hot Chocolate

It’s been a snowy past couple weeks and if you’re like me, you’ve been making ALL the hot drinks to stay warm and keep festive. This hot chocolate recipe is my favourite hot beverage this time of year. Low in sugar and a simple ingredient list, it’s not your average hot chocolate recipe. The natural caffeine from the dark chocolate make it a nice afternoon pick-me up beverage, but without the sugar crash.
