Tonight's dinner is jerk chicken (leftovers from a little recipe creation I was working on today - stay tuned!) paired with some yellow beans and a kale slaw. I made a really tasty dressing for the slaw with peanut butter, tamari, honey, lime, olive oil, garlic and ginger, and it is πŸ‘Œ Hope you all have a great weekend! #redsrecommendations

Fun start to my morning chatting with @ctvmelissalamb about 3-ingredient breakfast ideas! I shared three super simple breakfast recipes that only take 3 ingredients to prepare; Almond Banana Pancakes, Hash Brown Nest and three flavours of Chia Seed Pudding.
I'm not one to speak for others but I think Melissa may have liked those pancakes πŸ˜‰ #redsrecommendations

Shared a NEW recipe on the blog today for a Kale Pesto Grilled Chicken with Zucchini Noodles, plus a whole 'how to' guide on the best way to make zoodles.

Just shared a NEW recipe on the blog for this Blueberry Avocado Smoothie! This smoothie is super rich and creamy, thanks to the addition avocado, making it a tasty breakfast or snack.
Adding fat to a smoothie is a really great way to make a smoothie more of a complete meal, as it helps to slow down the absorption of the natural fruit sugars, balancing your blood sugar, and helps to keep you fuller longer and limit cravings later in the day. (And I maaayyy have added a little spinach too for extra greens, but that part is totally up to you. πŸ’)

Enjoying a little al fresco dinner tonight with the ladies; grilled kabobs with garden salad and mint lime dressing. (With a little cider and beer too. ☺️)
Shout out to @instaandrews for this tasty meal. Great way to spend a hump day! #redsrecommendations

Just shared a NEW recipe on the blog for these Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies! πŸ₯•
I wanted to create a healthy breakfast cookie to replace a full bowl of oatmeal for a simple grab-and-go breakfast, so that's exactly what I did.
Each cookie contains 1/3 cup oatmeal, 3 tbsp. walnuts, 3 tbsp. shredded carrots, 2 tbsp. raisins, 2 tbsp. apple sauce and 1 tsp. maple syrup, so they really are like a bowl of oatmeal! The recipe makes a total of 6 cookies, so one for every morning of the week, and an extra one for quality control. Just for good measure. πŸ˜‰ Check out the link in my profile for the recipe! #redsrecommendations

Today's lunch 🍴 Kept things really simple and fresh and used lots of last night's leftovers to make today's meal. I BBQ'd some @trulocal chicken last night in a simple marinade of olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. We also had corn from the @ottawafarmmkt so I'm eating a leftover cob, and I paired it all with a simple salad of @hendrickfarm lettuce and tomatoes, and a dressing of olive oil, red wine vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper.
Keeping things simple is the easiest way go eat well, simply focusing on whole foods, and it's pretty tasty too! #redsrecommendations

Happy Sunday! I just spent the afternoon at the @ottawafarmmkt doing an Instagram take over for @lansdownelive!
Since I am such a big ambassador for shopping local and eating seasonally, I was really excited to share why I love the market so much. I decided to do a full tour of the market to show all of my favourite vendors, and how much fun shopping local is. Plus I did my best to bring a little "Red" flare to the video, so give it a watch and let me know what you think πŸ’ #redsrecommendations

It's Thursday which means I just shared a NEW recipe on the blog for this Chickpea Chana Masala! This recipe is made with simple pantry staples making it really quick and easy to prepare for a cheap and cheerful dinner idea.
I don't always eat chickpeas because in excess they don't make me feel great digestively, but from time to time I can totally handle them, especially when they are full of flavour like this.
Paired with a little rice and some fresh coriander no one will ever know how inexpensive this Chickpea Chana Masala was to prepare. πŸ˜‰ Check out the link in my profile for the full recipe! #redsrecommendations

I am all about the veggie noodles lately which is why I'm totally in love with the Sweet Potato Peanut Pad Thai I added to the blog last week. If we are being nitty gritty about it, it's not technically 'pad thai' but the flavours are certainly inspired by it. The sauce in this recipe is super simple, made with peanut butter, lime juice, ginger, garlic, chillies, honey, sesame oil and tamari or soy sauce. Paired with sweet potato noodles, veggies and a sprinkle of peanuts, it's bound to be a hit for lunch or dinner. Check out the link in my profile for the full recipe. #redsrecommendations

After a late night at the @cflredblacks game, brunch at my favourite spot in Ottawa is the perfect start to the day before heading on a ladies long weekend @fairmontmontebello!
I opted for the Eggs In Purgatory for brunch; poached eggs in a spicy tomato sauce with cheese and arugula and toasty roasted spuds! #redsrecommendations

Rolling into the long weekend like πŸ”πŸ” Made this Smoky Buffalo Burger recipe for my friends over @trulocal for their August recipe of the month. Loaded with roasted red pepper sauce, sautΓ©ed mushrooms and arugula, they are the perfect long weekend meal. Check out @trulocal's website for the full recipe. #redsrecommendations

Today's lunch 🍴 Did a bit of a fridge clean out with this lunch, used some of the left over Mexican Street Corn Salad I shared yesterday, a leftover grilled sausage from a few nights ago, a handful of cherry tomatoes and a bunch of kale with olive oil and tomatoes.
One thing I try and do every day is make sure that at least one of my meals is loaded with leafy greens, so sometimes that means salad, sometimes that means cooking them, or sometimes that just means added a handful to whatever I am eating. Just gotta find a way to get those greens 🌱 #redsrecommendations

Made this Mexican Street Corn Salad for the blog today and it's SO good! 🌽 We are having it for dinner tonight with some chicken on the BBQ and I'm pretty excited to chow down on it all.
This salad is super simple to prepare, with only a few ingredients, and a great gluten-free side dish option that will feed a crowd. Plus, with corn season right around the corner it's the best time of year to make it. Check out the blog tomorrow for the full recipe! #redsrecommendations

Fun start to my morning chatting with @ctvmelissalamb about 3-ingredient breakfast ideas! I shared three super simple breakfast recipes that only take 3 ingredients to prepare; Almond Banana Pancakes, Hash Brown Nest and three flavours of Chia Seed Pudding.

Today's lunch🍴 After a long weekend in Prince Edward County drinking all the wine and eating all the food, I'm back at it. It was slim pickings today for lunch because we really didn't have much in the fridge, so I just went for a really simple salad. I hard boiled two eggs, added them to a salad mix, some goats cheese, salsa and a little avocado. Super simple, super tasty and only took me a few minutes to prepare. #redsrecommendations

Perfect end to an amazing weekend in Prince Edward County. We rode all the bikes, drank all the wine, and ate all the food. Can't wait for next year! #redsrecommendations
