Hemp Seed Granola Bars

As a mom of 3 packing lunches can sometimes feel like a daunting task. The balance between packing something healthy, convenient, while ensuring the kids will actually eat it can seem impossible. That was one of the reasons I wanted to create this school-safe bar recipe.

My daughter told me the other day that she got teased at school because she didn’t have any treats or fun stuff in her lunch. So I took this challenge on to make a fun, healthy treat for their lunches. If you follow my stories on Instagram @Prepwithpam you will see it took me a few tries to perfect this recipe. I am really proud with how it turned out and even more stoked that my kids LOVE these bars. A huge bonus is that my husband and I enjoy them for breakfast bars so even if you don’t have kids I know you will appreciate this recipe.

Greek Burger & Cauli Bun Recipes

This week I posted a pic of my dinner. It was a Greek Burger from my new cookbook with a Cauliflower Crust bun. The bun was inspired from the Cauli Pizza Crust recipe from my book and a friend Rosalie Brown who gave me the genius idea to make a better bun. I find bread makes me feel heavy and not great, so I normally just serve my burgers in lettuce wraps or on a salad. But man, sometimes you just want a burger on a bun. The cauli crust worked perfectly and tasted even better. I will put it out there that it does take a bit of work, but I promise it will be worth it.  So for this weeks blog post I am going to share the bun recipe as well as the Greek Burger Recipe.

Spring Detox Quinoa Salad

This past week, I was craving so much fresh raw foods, more salads and veg and a lot less roasting. I created this delish salad that was my lunch go to and I wanted to share it with all of you because it’s easy, delish and nutritious.

Each ingredient was added with intention and purpose. When you make your meals do you think of what you are putting into your body and why? I like to, that way I know I am fueling my day. I completely understand that not everyone does, has the time to or even knows how. This is where I come in to help keep it simple.

Chicken Detox Stew

Spring is in the air and that vibe always brings about a good Spring cleaning in our home. Along with cleaning out the house I do love a good real food reset to help facilitate a detox within our bodies.

People often think a detox means picking up a detox pill package or a special tea. A healthy detox is all about resetting, resting and nourishing the body from the inside out. At the same time eliminating any toxins or foods that can hinder the body’s natural detoxification process.

It’s about adding in foods that nourish our body and our cells. In this recipe, broccoli works to help detoxify the body it has a high amount of fiber, which allows you to feel full and it also works to keep your blood sugar low and balance between meals. This super veg also contains antioxidants and phytonutrients, which improves the detox process in your body and helps to eliminate other toxins.

I am working on putting together a 7-21 day real food reset detox program that will be coming out at the end of the month so if you feel like you could use a reset keep an eye out for it.

This is one of the recipes that will be in the program, it’s quick and easy to make and feels like comfort food warming you from the inside out. A perfect dish to add into your Sunday meal prep, we like to individually portion in containers for a delish grab and go lunch.

Chocolate Fudge Protein Energy Bars

This week I was really craving some creative time in the kitchen. Life has been busy, my prep game had been slacking, and it was starting to show in our household. When we don’t prep we end up making poor food choices and grabbing more take-out or convenience food.

So Thursday night while my hubby was working late, the kids and I had some fun together in the kitchen. The kids helped to make dinner and a few batches of energy balls while I got inspired to make this protein energy bar recipe. You will notice a lot of the balls and bars are similar and this is on purpose. Keeping it simple and slightly adding in your own favourite variation. The chocolate fudge frosting makes this a total crowd pleaser. From the feedback on Instagram you all agree and asked for the recipe so here it is.

I hope you enjoy these bars as much as our family did.

Red Lentil Dal

Did you know lentils are from the legume family? They are often categorized by their colour – green, red or brown. Red lentils are perfect for Dal as they cook quickly and have a sweet flavor. Lentils are an excellent plant-based protein source, a great source of iron, fibre, potassium, zinc and B vitamins. Garlic & onion are prebiotics, which feed probiotics – they work together to improve our gut health. Ginger and turmeric add great flavor to this meal but also have anti-inflammatory properties. Indian spices are warming for the body, which makes this the perfect comfort food for this time of year.

Not only is this dish healthy and delicious it is budget friendly too. A bag of red lentils is typically under $3 at most places depending on the size of the bag. Perhaps the best part about this recipe is that it only uses 1 pan and can be made in under 30 minutes.

Real food wins every time. It doesn’t have to be difficult to make something homemade, and this way you know exactly what you are putting in your body. Ingredients that have nutrients that you body needs and cutting out anything processed.
