Have you heard about watermelon pizza? Of course you have. Because you don’t live under a rock.
So here is my take…3 ways, because I’m an overachiever. :)

  • Start by washing the outside of your melon and then slicing into whole slices. From there you can cut into smaller pieces or even leave it whole and slice as requested.
  • (For the most amazingly intense flavour, grill your slices before topping!)
  1. Yogurt of choice, blueberries and hemp seeds
  2. Feta, pine nuts and a drizzle of balsamic glaze
  3. Fig jam, arugula and strawberries

What’s your favourite combo?

This ‘recipe’ …well, it’s really just too simple to call it a recipe…so here’s your inspiration for the day :)

taco tuesday, salsa, dinner, vegetarian, vegan

  • Corn Tortillas or Shells if that’s your kind of thing- hey you could even use wheat tortillas
  • 1/2 half head of cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • Your favourite taco seasoning {I make a home blend of cumin, cayenne, salt, smoked paprika, garlic powder, chill powder and oregano}
  • Pineapple Salsa
  • Grilled Corn
  • Avocado Dressing {I like to blend avocado, lime, greek yogurt or cashew cream, and water to thin}
  • Lime Wedge
  1.  Heat a pan over medium heat and add cauliflower. Cook for about 10 minutes, tossing so they don’t burn. Add in seasoning and about 1/8 cup of water. Continue cooking for about 10-15 minutes. If you want to cook it a little more, do that. If you’d rather bake it, toss cauliflower and seasoning with a little water to help coat and then bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.
  2. Heat your tortillas and build your empire.
  3. Drizzle with avocado dressing and squeeze lime over top.
  4. Post your amazing creations on all social media outlets and then demolish.

If you’ve been with me for awhile you know my obsession with potatoes (like here, and here, and here) but i’m here to tell you about another session I have…. it basically involves anything I can scoop on a chip, which incidentally is usually also potato….the obsession worlds just collided.

OK, let’s just dive right in, shall we?!

This is basically just the easiest way to clean out your fridge with any veggies or fruit that are close to the end. Chop it all up, add in some acid and some fresh herbs and you have a bowl of delicious salsa.

This version is;

  • 1 cup diced pineapple
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 cup tomatoes, diced- any variety you’d like
  • 1/2 cup green and orange bell pepper, diced
  • The juice of 1/2-1 lime, depending on your taste profile
  • S+P to taste
  • A handful of chopped herbs, I used parsley in this version

Mix to combine and grab a bag of scoops, chips, or even a gorgeous piece of sprouted toast with your favourite cream cheese and a few heaping spoonfuls of salsa. Recipe for a party :)

I am my most happiest when I am in the kitchen experimenting…and even happier when those experiments actually turn out really great. As I said, this is one of those happy days! Genuine Health’s newest product is their Fermented Greek Yogurt Protein+ Powder. It’s non-GMO, Gluten and Soy free and it tastes great. You can mix it with water or incorporate into your favourite dishes. And you are in luck…it’s currently on sale at Goodness Me online RIGHT. NOW.

My favourite part about this recipe is that it’s two fold. You can use the whip stacked between delicious fluffy blueberry pancakes like I did here OR put it in the freezer and turn it into a creamy ice cream for those hot days when you just need a healthy treat.

Greek Yogurt Protein Whip

  1. Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Add more water, a little at a time, to thin out your whip to your desired consistency.

Blueberry Pancakes

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour {whichever kind tickles your fancy}
  • 1 cup rolled oats {not instant}
  • 1 banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup coconut milk {or whichever type of milk you’d like}
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 quart of blueberries
  • Any additional toppings: I used walnuts and pure maple syrup but get creative here
  1. Blend the flour and oats together in a blend until fine.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients {but only half of the blueberries} and blend until combined.
  3. Fold in the rest of the blueberries and put mixture aside.
  4. Heat your lightly greased pan over medium heat.
  5. Once the pan is heated, spoon in the pancake mixture. You should be able to get about 8-10 pancakes depending on how big your make them.
  6. Cook on one side until the edges turn slightly brown, about 3 minutes, then flip and repeat on other side.
  7. Once all your pancakes are done begin assembling your stack…pancake-whip-pancake-whip-pancake-whip…. add any toppings you’d like and enjoy!

Note: If photo worthy picture meals aren’t your jive, feel free to just load up a plate of pancakes and pour over your whip in any messily delicious way you’d like.
