This week, I'll be sharing with you all 2 soup recipes to add to your recipe boxes. Soup is such a versatile meal. It's a great way to use up whatever produce you have in the fridge and you can spice & season it any which way safely. What I especially love about soup is how easy it is to make it in large quantities. It's perfect to freeze and save so you can have a delicious meal at a later date.

The term "Labour of Love" applies to arancini. It is definitely a much more time consuming and labour intensive dish than most and requires a good chunk of time to prepare. With that being said, it is definitely worth every minute spent preparing it.
Arancini is one of my favourite dishes to prepare and I've made them a variety of ways in the past. This version is especially enjoyable to me because of the mexican flare. I've given the arborio rice some oomph with spices like cumin and chili powder and the addition of corn, beans, and vegetables. Inside, you'll find a gooey bite of Monterey Jack cheese that melts so amazingly, you'll never go for traditional mozzarella again.
I can't wait for you guys to try this recipe out, I'm so proud of how it turned out. Head on over to the RECIPES page for the full recipe and shopping list!
As I read this article I realized I had made every one of these mistakes when I first became a vegetarian. It's so easy to make mistakes when attempting a lifestyle change like this one. It's not just giving up meat or going vegan and giving up all animal products, there's so much more to it than that.
It's about taking the time to read all of the ingredient labels on everything you want to buy. It's about avoiding animal products like leather or fur which can be sneakily hiding on / in a variety of things we purchase. It's about learning to cook vegetables in new and exciting ways. It's about learning to maximize on vitamins, minerals, and proteins through food and drink. Everything changes and quite rapidly so mistakes are totally normal and ok.
I wanted to touch base on their 4 things and talk a little about my own experiences.
How many mistakes did y'all make when you first went vegetarian / vegan? I can bet almost all of you will relate to at least one of these mistakes. Mistakes are normal, learn from them and continue to do the best you can for your bodies!
Pesto is one of my absolute favourite flavours. It's so fresh and bursting with flavour, it's the perfect addition to so many meals. I love tossing my cooked pasta in pesto before serving because it adds another delicious layer of flavour to my dish.
I've whipped up a super easy ravioli dish that I'm sure y'all will love. I've tossed fresh ravioli in pesto and served it with a saute of onion, mushroom, and pepper. A finishing dollop of tomato sauce and we've got a simple, weeknight meal that takes less than a half an hour from start to finish. It's absolutely delicious!
