Brussels sprouts have a bad rep. They don't have to be the overcooked stink bombs of previous generations. It's a new generation of brussels sprouts - a roasted, crispy, creamy era for this tiniest of sprouts. If you haven't tried roasted brussels sprouts, now is the time! Then add kimchi and a quick rice wine vinaigrette and you're in sprout heaven. Seriously though, roasted brussels sprouts with kimchi are the hands-down favourite roasted veg side dish in our house.
Do your Paleo and Whole30 breakfasts seem like an endless parade of eggs? By the third week of the Whole30, I can't stand to eat another egg. With recipes from a bunch of wonderful healthy food bloggers, I've compiled a list of 18 Whole30 or Paleo egg-free breakfast recipes to get you out of your egg-rut!
I have three exciting things to share! First, I'm a new brand ambassador for Vista Magazine, a beautiful Canadian organic and healthy living publication available (free!) in health food stores and online. Secondly, I had the opportunity to speak with Naturopath, Dr. Niki Nephin about all the buzz around elderberries.
I know what you're thinking. Spaghetti squash? In eggs? It's strange but there's something quite delicious about chorizo, greens, chili flakes and spaghetti squash baked with eggs and tomato. These breakfast egg-cups are meant to be a great way to multi-task during meal-prep.

Am I alone in thinking that cabbage is so underrated? It's fantastically crunchy and satisfying as a salad, it's a great slurpy addition to soup and don't even get me started on how delicious it is fermented as kimchi or sauerkraut! I'll take cabbage any way I can get it, but often I want a classic, creamy paleo coleslaw to accompany grilled meat, pulled pork or as a bunless burger topper.
Pulled pork is one of the staple foods we make a few times a month and eat leftovers for days on end. It's affordable, easy and can be paired with basically any side at any time of the day. Making Instant Pot pulled pork is a super easy weekend prep dish for your weekly meal plan.
Cooking dinner doesn't have to be a long drawn out affair. Learning how to make spaghetti squash with the Instant Pot (method here!) in just minutes was a meal prep revelation. Quick-cooked spaghetti squash with chorizo and spicy greens comes together fast and is packed with spicy, garlicky flavour.
The Instant Pot is great for big braised meals that otherwise take tons of time to cook but can it make the little things in your life easier? The answer is an emphatic yes!
Pineapple pork is a dish I remember my grandmother making when I was a kid - I loved the sweet and sour pineapple bits as much as I liked the pork. This Instant Pot pineapple pork cooks in a fraction of the time and would have made my childhood self very happy.
