I whipped up a batch of this jam when I went super crazy and bought too a large batch of raspberries at Costco! This is a great option for those looking to make a healthy alternative to jams or when your looking to use up those berries that are about to go bad.


  • 2 cups of berries of choice – I used raspberry – can be frozen/ fresh or a mix of both 🙂
  • 2 tbsp of chia seeds
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Splash of vanilla

Heat the fruit on medium high heat until it breaks down and comes to a boil. Add remaining ingredients and remove off heat. Let it cool, it will expand into a thick jam.

My favourite toast to use is on toasted english muffins (especially Ezekiel english muffins), but pancakes, crepes, and waffles are a great option as well.


This recipe is a rendition of something my mom used to make (still does) for those cold winter nights where you’re craving nothing but a warm hearty meal for dinner. With some variation of course – my mom would add potatoes and green beans – I found the recipe to give my mind and body that cozy feeling the moment I took the first bite. There is something truly remarkable about making a meal that reminds you of home.


  • 1 pound beef stew meat
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 3 cups of vegetable stock
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 can (250ml) of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 pack of zucchini noodles
  • 3 dried bay leaves
  • salt and peper


  1. Heat olive oil in large pot on medium heat. Add chopped onion and cook until translucent
  2. Add beef stew meat and cook until browned on all sides (5-8mins)
  3. Add remaining ingredients leaving aside zucchini noodles. Cover pot and cook on medium-high for 10 mins.
  4. Add zucchini noodles. Turn heat to medium-low and cook for additional 20 minutes. Enjoy!

p.s: this recipe works really well as a vegan or vegetarian option – just omit the beef and add things like beans or tofu for that added protein!
