another big lull between posts, my apologies! BUT it’s pretty exciting actually because i wrote my final exam in my final class in school. this meals following handing in my last assignment next week, i will be a holistic nutritionist! cue the applause, *takes a bow*
in all seriousness though, thank you all for sticking through the spotty posting while i’ve been in school. it’s been a juggling act but i have loved writing this blog the whole time and it wouldn’t have been the same without all of you!
while i don’t have a new recipe for you this week, i promise next week i will! for now, i leave you with suggestions for the coming weekend.
whether you are celebrating easter or are just using the weekend to catch up on sleep and lounge around for an extra day, i have you covered.
15 recipes for a long weekend stay-cation or easter entertaining
guests deserve a special breakfast. so why not these fluffy pancakes made with chickpea flour! they’ll never know you got all healthy on them.
or if you’re just staying in, why not try banana coconut cream pie oats- perfect for one and most of the work is done while you sleep!
regardless of your plans, everyone deserves a special cup of coffee in the morning. try coffee blended with coconut oil for a dose of healthy fats and a creamy, delicious cuppa.
now as a host/hostess, never let your guests be hungry, these savoury chickpea flatbreads with kale basil pesto with delight and satisfy.
if you’re keeping it more casual and lounging in your pjs, why not have some fresh tasting lemon and sundered tomato hummus with some veggies?
a good salad never goes amiss- so whip up this shredded brussels sprout salad for yourself or guests.
or enjoy a picnic in the park with a good book with this avocado lime and jalapeno potato salad.
to make a special meal for guests, wow them with blood orange glazed carrots with a miso-scallion sauce on top of farro.
or if the weather is nice and you are firing up the grill, these sesame edamame burgers are the perfect option (and are totally grill-able!)
now it wouldn’t be a special weekend without something sweet so here are a few options…
grain-free berry crisp- use your favourite seasonal berry to welcome spring!
pineapple shortbread bars that are no bake and just scream summer.
or because chocolate is never a bad idea, this chocolate cream pie isn’t either.
and because easter screams chocolate over load, maybe try making some homemade chocolate almond butter cups for guests to snack on.
or if chocolate isn’t your things, these tahini banana cups are just as delicious!
finally, in case YOU get to be the guest in someone else’s home and need a good hostess gift- chocolate cherry almond granola says i appreciate your hospitality enough to not eat this entire batch of granola myself and give some to you. and that means a lot.
happy weekend everyone!
do you guys have special weekend plans?
who is going to gorge on chocolate with me?
