My Back-to-School Shopping List

Hi! School is finally upon us, which means that it’s time to start making lunches again. Today I’ve comprised a list of food items that I like to have on hand during the school year to make feeding myself a little easier. I use most of the things on this list on a weekly basis, if not every day, and lots of them are in the recipes on my blog. If you want to start eating a little healthier, it really helps to have some healthy ingredients in your house so that you can actually make healthy food. Here’s my list!

  • A LOT of fruit and veggies
  • Avocados
  • Greek yogurt
  • Natural Peanut Butter
  • Hummus
  • Whole grain pitas or tortillas
  • Chickpeas
  • Black Beans
  • Quinoa
  • Oatmeal
  • Lentils
  • Chickpea Pasta
  • Whole grain crackers
  • Sprouted Grain Bread
  • Organic Canned Soup (this comes in handy on days when I sleep in!)
  • Oil and vinegar (for salad dressings)
  • Healthy muffins

I know that that might sound like a lot of stuff, but you don’t need all of it to make a healthy lunch. The most important thing to me on that list is fruit and vegetables, because they’re a super quick snack and are healthy and delicious. If you don’t like the taste of veggies on their own, try dipping them in hummus or another dip. Starting tomorrow I’ll be posting my lunches on my Instagram story every day, so be sure to check that out! Have a great first week back to school, see you Wednesday;)

Chocolate Zucchini Energy Bites

Hi guys! As you know, school is coming up and it’s time to stock up on snacks to keep you going through the school day. These energy bites taste amazing, and the addition of oats, dates, hemp hearts makes them a hearty snack. Plus, you can sneak an extra serving of veggies into your day by adding zucchini! The cocoa totally masks it and you won’t even know it’s there. Enjoy!

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup grated zucchini
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts

Directions:

  1. Fill a bowl with hot water from the tap. Add in the dates and let them sit in the water for about 10 minutes, then drain.
  2. In a blender, pulse the oats until they resemble a fine flour. Add in the zucchini, dates, cocoa powder, and hemp hearts. Process until everything is combined.
  3. Scoop heaping tablespoons of the mixture into your hands and roll into balls. Place into a Tupperware and let sit in the fridge for 10 minutes before serving. Store in the fridge.

Making these in big batches so that you can always have a snack handy would be a great idea! See you Friday;)

My Food Bucket List

Hi peoples! I got an idea from a friend to post my food bucket list. Thanks friend!This is a list of the dishes that I’d like to make, whether they be from other blogs or whether I want to come up with the recipe myself. Cooking is a big part of my life, and I use it as a way to relax and as an outlet for creativity. I love to try out new recipes and to experiment with different ingredients. Two people that I draw inspiration from are Ella Mills, who runs deliciouslyella.com, and Angela Liddon, who runs ohsheglows.com. They both have amazing recipes, and so lots of the recipes on this list are from them:) The food that is from other blogs will have a link posted next to it, and if there’s no link then that means I’d like to come up with my own recipe. Who knows, maybe I’ll post some of these on my blog someday! Here’s my list;)

Hope there’s a little inspiration for you;) Have a great weekend and see you Monday!

Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Hey there! I have a really neat recipe for you guys today. This Sweet Potato Gnocchi is super simple, yet super delicious! There are only two ingredients: Sweet Potatoes and Whole Wheat Flour, so these gnocchis are healthy as well. They’re great with tomato sauce, pesto, or even just some basil and olive oil. I hope you enjoy!

Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Serves: 2-3 as a main, 4-6 as a side

Total Time: 60 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 small sweet potatoes
  • 2 1/2 – 3 cups whole wheat flour

Directions:

  1. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into small pieces, about a centimetre wide. Steam them for about 15-20 minutes, or until soft.
  2. Dump the potatoes into a bowl and mash them using a potato masher. Make sure that there aren’t any big clumps of sweet potato left.
  3. Transfer the mashed potatoes onto a clean countertop. Add a 1/2 cup of flour, and use your hands to mix it into the potatoes. Continue to add the flour in 1/2 cup increments, until a dough forms. It shouldn’t be very sticky, but you should also be able to easily knead it. Knead the dough a few times to make sure that the flour is mixed in well.
  4. Once the dough is ready, grab a handful and roll it into a long cylinder, about 1 1 /2 centimetres thick. Starting at the end, cut the “rope” of dough into pieces that are 1 1/2 centimetres wide. You can then take a fork and press down lightly on each gnocchi, leaving an imprint. Continue to do this with the rest of the dough. You should end up with dumplings that look something like this:
  5. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and dump the gnocchis into the pot. Cook them for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain the pasta. Serve with your favourite sauce.
  6. Enjoy!

I’ll see you guys later this week!
