It’s true... pretty food tastes better 😜 BUT that doesn’t mean my plate is always perfectly plated (just follow along with this week’s What I Ate Wednesday in my story to see REAL LIFE 🙃)... This 👆🏼EASY Shrimp Primavera over Zoodles🍝 is one of our FAVORITE meals that you can make in MINUTES! 🍤
Here’s how to make it 👩🏻🍳 Rinse shrimp under cool water and pat dry. Sprinkle shrimp with @simplyorganicfoods
smoked paprika, salt & pepper. Coat a large skillet over medium heat with olive oil, cook shrimp ~2 minutes on each side, or until just opaque. Remove shrimp from heat and set aside. 🍤 Then sauté zoodles until just soft - don’t overcook (that’s how they get super watery!). 🍝 Pour warmed @raoshomemade
marinara sauce over the zoodles + shrimp and sprinkle with oregano and parm ... Enjoy! 😍 Full recipe is on CitNutritionally.com! 💗
This is a simple salad base that I eat almost every day for lunch. I put together baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, grated carrot and spanish onion. It’s super easy to prep and pack together fresh each night, so I can grab and go in the mornings 🏃🏼♀️
I use 🍋 as dressing, not only is it all natural but it aids in digestion and contained lots of vitamin c which is good for your immune system 💪🏼
Generally I will then top my salad with organic protein like salmon, chicken or eggs - keeping it nice and simple 💫

Lunch time. My favourite go to easy lunch when there is no leftovers. Chilli tuna with brown rice and steam veg
Lunch today is one of my favourite and easy meals, smoked salmon with Asian slaw and sesame oil dressing 🤤 •
I CAN’T get enough of these sandwiches!!!! 🙋🏼♀️💕🤤
I made 20 of them this weekend at the cottage (2 each for my 10 friends), and they were such a hit!
My husband and I often make these on weeknights when we need something easy to make, but it was just as easy to make a quadruple batch at the cottage 💕
Feeling super #blessed
that I have friends who are so accepting and open to trying vegan meals - everyone was soooo impressed with the food this weekend and not a single joke about veganism was made.

Egg salad with alfalfa sprouts! Paprika, mayo, mustard, pepper makes it a simple meal. #easylunch
What are some of your favourite car snacks? I’m currently road tripping to NYC, and thinking that a plate like this would make the best road snack 👌 Cucumbers, carrots, red peppers and rice cakes cause that’s how I do #ToastTuesday
😋 and some homemade hummus for dipping of course! I copied my super simple go-to recipe below just in case you were curious ⬇️ In reality I’m munching away on some baked baby potatoes, which are also good - they would be better with some hummus though, not gonna lie (hummus has that effect on most things though 😂) Happy Tuesday friends! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Easy Peasy Hummus
* 1 can chickpeas (or 1 3/4 cup of fresh cooked chickpeas)
* 2 tbsp tahini (sesame seed paste - you could also use 1/4 cup sesame seeds)
* 2 tbsp almond milk (or just enough to help everything blend together)
* Juice of half a lemon
* 1 tsp cumin
* 1/4th tsp garlic powder
* Salt and pepper, to taste
1. If using canned chickpeas, drain and rinse well.
2. Add all ingredients into a food processor and blend up until it reaches your desired consistency - you can use more or less almond milk depending on how it’s blending.
3. Top with pumpkin seeds, a sprinkle of paprika or anything else you’d fancy really - serve with your favourite dippables and enjoy!

Also big up to Grandma Yum (my Mum) who makes the best homemade sandwiches known to mankind. It doesn’t matter the what’s inside, but somehow she manages to get the filling positioned and quantity judged perfectly to avoid a messy eat. It’s quite a skill.
My favourite right now is a roasted squash and feta combo. But you can’t beat a leftover turkey, brie and cranberry combo at Christmas I say. Tell me, what’s your favourite sarnie?
It’s hard to say for sure but I think carrots might be my favorite vegetable 🧡
They’re so versatile and while my favorite way to eat them is probably how they are here in my salad, sautéed in the cast iron skillet with olive oil, pink salt and pepper, they’re also fabulous raw with hummus, roasted in the oven, juiced anddd in carrot cake 😂🧡
Carrots get their color from antioxidants called carotenoids. One of these carotenoids is beta carotene which is needed to active vitamin A that is responsible for many of the carrots health benefits! Swipe ➡️ for a list of benefits. 🔸
I think it’s also important to note that you’re going to get more nutrients from a raw carrot vs. a cooked carrot and more nutrients when you do NOT peel them (of course then it’s better to buy organic and/or wash thoroughly). You’re also going to get a concentrated effect from juicing them, but this concentrates the sugar as well as removes the fibrous skin so may not be best for everyone (thinking diabetics). Really, you should try and consume them in a VARIETY of ways- prepare them differently and try buying different types! -did you know purple carrots exist?!💜- But if you think they’re delicious roasted and not so much raw that’s perfectly fine too! Just eat your veggies ☺️

People are posting these rainbow organized #fridgegoals
pics and I’m just over here trying to figure out why I have 11 jars of pickled things and whether I can still eat that blue cheese that got lost in the back of the fridge because there’s still fig jam left and how do you tell with blue cheese?!?🧀🐭
Watermelon radish, tomato, cucumber, mung bean sprouts, parsley & green pinions, with sheep’s milk feta (that definitely isn’t expired😂)

Bet you never thought of adding olives to your chicken salad! Trust us: total game changer. Learn how to make over your lunch with our easy chicken salad sliders—link in profile.
I had nothing for lunch today! I didn’t make enough for dinner last night to have as leftovers or didn’t prep anything else. So I grabbed a can of wild caught tuna, an avocado**, sprouted brown rice cakes**, and some sprouts**. I absolutely love the tuna and avocado combo and haven’t had it in awhile. Keep something simple like this on hand that you enjoy so you can grab it in a rush. Don’t overthink your meals, they don’t always have to contain tons of ingredients. Keep it simple, and eat real foods. I paired this with some of @feelgoodsoda
kombucha and was craving an apple!
The only downside to spending the long weekend in Boston and Rhode Island (which were both AWESOME), is coming back to an empty fridge (and bugs all over my appartment which was not cool at all, but that's a different topic 😭)
Luckily, this dish cleared out the contents of my fridge, was quick to make and tastes delicious thanks to the addition of cumin and sumac! 💃
The two go so well together thanks to sumac being such a zesty lemony tasting spice that pairs awesomly with lots of flavors 🍋
Mix quinoa, chickpeas, crumbled feta, tomato, cucumber, parsley, olive oil, cumin, sumac and pepper 🙌🙌 (dats it!)
Have an awesome Tuesday friends 😎
Basic chicken salad - chicken, onions, maybe celery, mayo, salt & pepper - is a great blank canvas for a gazillion variations. One of my faves is to add curry powder to the mayo, then add something a little sweet (mangoes or mango chutney, golden raisins, or chopped dried apricot) & some salty nuts. Other possible additions - bell pepper, shredded carrot, cilantro, sesame or sunflower seeds. .....
What would you add?
