Avocado Burger Bun: Meghna’s

“Today I want to share with you this healthy food recipe idea which has taken up the health food world by a storm. It is a recipe for an Avocado Burger Bun! I love this idea as I think it is a great low carb, grain free dinner idea. It also looks so cute and vibrant! An avocado burger bun is when the two sides of the avocado is used instead of a regular bread based burger bun. Hence this helps in reducing the extra calories and carbs in a regular burger, it also add a good source of fat and a creamy texture to your burger.” Read more…

The Ultimate Salad with Creamy Citrus-Tahini Dressing: Wholly-Nourished

Salad. This word makes me think back to freshman year of college when I was living in the dorms and pretty much ate salad everyday. Let’s just say that, in general, that experience has given me a strong aversion to eating a salad for a meal. But what if salads could be full of flavour and loaded with healthy fats, proteins, and vitamin rich veggies? Well, I am happy to say that I have found a salad is just exactly that! I can’t claim this recipe as entirely my own because it was inspired by a salad from my favourite Ann Arbor restaurant – The Lunchroom.” Read more…

Black Bean & Lentil Bolognese: Healthy Living James

As I am taking part in “Veganuary”, I wanted to transform some traditional comforting meat dishes into delicious vegan dishes instead. It’s a very simple and healthy one pan dish. It works great for lunch/dinner the next day and also can be frozen down and stored.” Read more…

Cleansing Green Gazpacho Soup with Kefir: Wholesome Stef

“Soup is one of my favourite things to make – it’s comforting and warming especially in the fall and winter. Now that I live in Sydney where the winter is hotter than most summer days in Germany, I don’t crave soups as often to heat me up from the inside. What I do crave is it’s consistency and the nutritional benefits of blending a shit ton of veggies into one big bowl. Enter: gazpacho.” Read more…
