It’s hot—like really hot in Canada right now. If you didn’t know the date, you would think we were in July.
But no, we are in September, end of September and Fall is nowhere to be found in this intense heat. I am sitting outside typing this recipe for you guys and I am literally dripping sweat, refusing to go inside because you just cannot not spend days like these outside.
Since its hard to think about the Fall Harvest and crave squash and pumpkin flavored anything in this heat, I came up with this fresh but hearty salad; perfect for odd in-between seasons weather like we are experience right now. Read more to get the recipe!
I also love making almond milk because you really get your money's worth. Almonds and nuts in general don't come cheap so you obviously want to make the most of them.
Which is why the other thing I love about making almond milk is because of the leftover almond pulp. You can do so much with it. You can dehydrate it and turn into almond flour or almond meal. But my personal favourite recipe is using them to make the yummiest and most filling energy balls ever!
They are a great snack to have in the afternoon when you are craving something sweet and need that energy boost.
Optional (for coating):
Meatless Mondays are about what can you eat but also what you can drink.
You see for me Meatless Mondays goes back to honouring the food you are eating. Sure it’s about not eating meat but it doesn’t mean eating just any food that isn’t meat.
There a lot of foods out there that aren’t meat, that isn’t necessarily good for you. So my approach to meatless Mondays is really being as plant based as I possibly can.
One of the many great things that plant based brings us are nuts! There is so much you can do with nuts. So much.
Burgers. We all grew up with them. If it wasn’t for family barbecues or cottage lunches, we definitely acquainted ourselves with them through fast food runs to Wendy’s, McDonalds, or Harvey’s.
I loveeee a damn good burger—One that is juicy and full of flavor with the right toppings and sauces makes for a pretty great experience. So when I began this Meatless Monday journey, one of the things I was going to miss was having a burger.
Now, I know I could have a burger any other day of the week but I wondered if I could have the same experience but without a beef burger.
