Favourites Friday #64: That {lactose} Intolerant Life

One of the worst things that ever happened to me was finding out that I am lactose intolerant. No, not because I could no longer chug 2% milk, but I found out because my stomach had horrible grumbling fits during my 5th period chemistry class where I sat right behind my crush.

Yes, milk was the cause of my tragic lack of love.

But six years later I have learned to deal with leaving lactose out of my diet. No, it’s not quite as fun as eating whatever you want, but adopting a more dairy-free diet has definitely improved my health and made eating with friends with an actual allergy not as bad.

Below are five amazing tricks to eating lactose-free in the last few years (and some in the last week) that I think everyone should try because they taste just as good as the lactose! Continue reading

Who’s ready for another very easy, very affordable meal by someone who loves cooking, but has very little patience.

Today’s recipe comes from all of my favourite things to eat (lemon, garlic, shrimp, pasta) and the fact that one pot meals are the only meals I am interested in making. I love being in the kitchen, but not while doing the dishes. This pasta dish is perfect for comfort night, but healthy enough to not feel guilty for having a second helping. And there’s tons to share with that special someone!

5 Easy Healthy Eating Tricks

I love trying fad diets, and I love eating healthy, but I’m kind of the worst at staying consistent with my diet. So, in the light of the new year – and the fact that I have to wear a corset for WizardCon in two weeks – it’s time to get my health back on track. Which means it needs to be easy.

We all approach healthy eating like a disease or freak show: Something that we are intrigued by, but don’t want to approach. That’s why when you break down healthy eating into something super simple (and this is from someone who hates cooking on week nights and too many cravings for meal planning) eating healthy becomes a lot more doable. And because I like eating healthy, it’s all the more fun!

See below for my five tricks to eating healthier without all the stress. Continue reading

Not Your Average Poached Eggs

I love poached eggs. They are the one kind of egg I feel confident making (yes, even over scrambled) and when I can find a delicious change to plain poached eggs on toast, then I am very happy!

My Favourite Fall Breakfast: Pumpkin Honey Overnight Oats

As the leaves begin to fall and the need for a jacket in the evening becomes necessary, it’s time to switch from eggs and fruit to something a bit more hearty for breakfast.

As autumn is time for pumpkin and brown sugar and crockpot soup, I love a good bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. And something I can make the night before and just heat up the next morning (or eat cold) is exactly the kind of breakfast I want when I’d rather just stay in bed than face the bitter wind.

This recipe steals from multiple overnight oat recipes I’ve seen in the last year and I’ve made it so it’s just perfect for me. I hope you love my pumpkin overnight oats as much as I do! Continue reading
