Peanut Butter Chocolate Oats – Plant-Based + Gluten-Free
I love oatmeal. It’s so easy and versatile. If you don’t like oatmeal you’ve got to expand your horizon and try different types. There are rolled oats, and quick oats, and steel-cut oats. I do not like quick oats but rolled and steel-cut oats are so good! Quick oats tend to have a weird texture.
This specific bowl is my go-to for a decadent breakfast I get excited about. It’s super filling and use to be my go-to meal when I was about to head out for a big day of snowboarding.

I kind of went whole food plant based on a whim. When I started, I had no idea that there were so many benefits of a plant based diet. I was sick of feeling sick and tired and I'd tried every other ‘healthy diet, cleanse and supplement’ under the sun with no success -...

I walk into my new job, it’s my first day of work. I meet the most wonderful lady who has already been told I’m vegan and she looks at me so alarmed and says “but what about cheese?” This is a question I’ve been asked over and over throughout my years of being a...
I remember constantly trying to give up cheese but always caving in as my auntie cooked me a big delicious pile of fried cheese or an entire block of garlic roasted brie. It took a heck of a lot of trying but eventually, I learned some really good reasons which I will...
