Tangy Cabbage Slaw

I must admit, my husband created this recipe! We had a cabbage salad at a little cafe on Bowen Island and he enjoyed it so much he asked if I might recreate it. When nothing materialized, he took matters into his own hands and came up with this. I can’t say I’ve changed it up that much from what his original …

Miso Ginger Encrusted Salmon

I’ve long been a fan of miso. In fact, one of my first recipes was a recreation of a local restaurants popular dish – Miso Nut Power Bowl. However, I’ve long been searching for more delicious ways to use the miso sitting in my fridge! Thanks to a delicious idea from my new partner in crime, Eat2Run nutritionist Kaydee Gregg (which …

Bison Stroganoff

My husband loves rice or pasta dishes with sauces – and this one is a really fast and easy one to throw together! It’s too heavy for the day before a long run or a race (due to the full fat coconut milk and the red meat) but it works really well any other night! If you can’t find bison …

Quinoa-Hummus-Kale Tri-Plate

This was my favouritepre-race supper for quite some time a few years back – particularly when I first began ‘eating 2 run’. It travels well and is eaten cold, so I’d even make it up and take it with me for out-of-town races. In fact, this is exactly what I ate the night before I ran my fastest half marathon …

Nutrient Dense Beef Stew

I’ve thrown these ingredients into a pot enough times now with such enthusiastic feedback from hubby to know I’ve got a winner. Now to get it into writing so I will remember to pull it out again come winter next year! I stumbled across meatme.ca a few months ago and was absolutely stoked to find a local source of quality meat …

Shepherd’s Pie

I’ve been making this one for years – started with the vegetarian version and over the years as I began eating a bit of meat added the omnivore version. My side always has yams on it while hubby’s side always is jam-packed full of mashed potato – I know, next time I need to snap a pic of the whole …

Potato Galette

Well had I known such a thing as a potato cake existed, I’d have been making these long ago! Better late than never – my first experience with a potato galette (aka a round crusty cake) turned out quite alright I’d say. Such a great item for a potluck, as you can make it up in advance, and then just …

Salmon Cakes

One of my all time favourite quick ‘n’ easy meals that is a great fall back for those days I’m less organized, these salmon cakes are so simple and too good not to share! Salmon Cakes (makes 4 servings) Ingredients 3 tins (3 x 150g) sockeye or wild salmon, drained 2 eggs 2 tsp dried parsley 2 tsp dried basil 1 tsp sea …

Quick ‘n’ Easy Taco Bowl

I messaged my husband last night saying I wouldn’t be home until around 9pm, could he please check my latest Instagram post and make that up for dinner? Knowing he gets overwhelmed in the kitchen if it’s anything more than scrambled eggs and fried potatoes, I was a bit worried as it was this taco salad I’d asked him to …

Coconut Curried Yam Stew

I dreamt this one up when I was trying to decide what to bring to a potluck… Nothing on my list was jumping out at me as a great potluck dish and so I tried to envision in my head what I ideally wanted one to look like. Something that was all in one pot, warm (because there was SNOW outside!!), …
