Whether it be at a Vietnamese or Thai restaurant, I always order a summer roll. Light, fresh and I love the peanut sauce its dipped in. Here, I decided to make these shrimp summer rolls as the weather has been so nice and I wanted something light for dinner.

You may not know this about me, but I love a good margarita. Salted rim, on the rocks, good tequila. On our recent trip to Mexico, it was my drink of choice. I’d watch the bartenders and ask them what they put in it. I quickly learned that the ones I were drinking was tequila, triple sec, lime juice and big guzzles of sugar syrup (eeek!). When I got home, I wanted to make a version that tastes great but didn’t require all that sugar syrup as I know the margaritas I were drinking were not low calorie.

I’m always wanting to create healthier versions of my favorite takeout food. Sometimes, I think these versions are even better than takeout. They are less greasy, not filled with sodium and can have a lot more flavor. Bonus is that I feel good after eating them, not yucky and bloated.

I love a good curry. Thai, indian or anything in between. Especially when its done in 1-pot like this vegan chickpea cauliflower curry. This dish has more of an Indian flavour with the garam marsala. I get ground garam marsala, which you can pretty much find at any grocery store that has an ethnic aisle.  This curry is super simple to put together on a weeknight. What I love even more about this recipe is how great it tastes the next day, so its a good one for meal prep. I ate it for a couple days in a row for lunch and looked forward to it.

Need breakfast in a pinch? Me too! Every morning I’m trying to decide what I can throw together for breakfast in 5 minutes or less. I love my smoothies, but sometimes I’m in the mood for something savory. I have a great list of quick breakfast ideas, but wanted to come up with something new.

That’s why I decided on these make-ahead turkey sausage and egg burritos, and they came out fantastic! It took me about 25-30 minutes to prep 10 burritos, and they came out delicious, lower carb, and a heck of a lot healthier than what you’ll find in the freezer section of your grocery store.

Summer is here and I can barely contain my excitement. Its by far my favorite season, as the winter in Vancouver can get pretty gloomy. I’m always happy to pack up the sweaters and do a wardrobe switch to summery dresses, fun casual outfits, and lighter more comfortable business attire.
