Toasted Muesli with Coconut, Dark Chocolate and Macadamia Nuts

Since it’s so versatile and easy to transport, Muesli makes the best treat to have at work, take it with you on the road or just enjoy it as a meal with a variety of toppings. Put it in a mason jar, screw on the lid, and take it with you! Oats are very satisfying and this snack can keep you full for hours.
The end result is a lightly sweetened, slightly crunchy muesli. Try it with cold oat milk, or heat it up together with the milk to create a hot cereal. The add ons are endless from coconut yogurt to dried fruit, fresh fruit or seeds. I love the texture, flavors, flexibility and creativity in this delicious muesli!

Roasted Triple Squash with Brussels Sprouts, Pecans and Cauli Crumble

This delish dish is packed with flavor, antioxidants, colorful nutrients and crunch! 3 different squash (Acorn, Butternut and Honey Nut) make this one healthy meal as they are rich sources of vitamins A, C, K, and minerals like magnesium, potassium, manganese, coppper, phosphorus, calcium and iron. The topping, Cauli Crumble, takes just a few minutes to cook and adds a substantial amount of fiber and protein to the meal. This is a simple dish that is great for the holidays or any day of the week!

Spicy Spud Balls

These spicy spud balls are packed full of flavor with fresh herbs, spices, oats and red potatoes. They are incredibly delicious and nutritious with a nice crunchy outside. I’ve made many versions of balls and burgers using beans and grains but never potatoes. So why not try it! I can honestly say they were way better than I’d expected them to be and a big hit with my taste tester. We enjoyed eating them with pasta, salad and just by themselves with sauce.
