4 tips for reading food labels

This post is for you if you want to make healthy choices when it comes to food shopping! Checking food labels and determining whether certain foods are good for us or not can be overwhelming considering the amount of ingredients in most food items, and it can take a lot of time that most of us don't have to spare when going to the store. That's why I came up with four main things to consider when determining whether or not to buy certain foods.

Healthier apple pies

You know those little McDonald's apple pies? They taste great, right? That's why I've come up with a healthier homemade version of them. Let me know what you think!

Vegan artichoke, spinach and white bean dip

I tried to make a cheese-free, blender only alternative to the cheesy baked spinach and artichoke dip, and this is what came out. It definitely doesn't taste the same, but it's still a delicious dip and an alternative for vegans or anyone who cannot eat dairy for other reasons!

Quick matcha chai latte

Chai lattes are the ultimate comfort drink for me. The warm flavour of the spices combined with milk and a little bit of sweetness can even make the worst days just a little bit better. Because we don't always have the time to go to coffee shops that serve them, and because most of the store bought instant powders contain way more sugar than necessary, I decided to create this healthier homemade version with matcha.

Healthy homemade hummus

Who doesn't like hummus? It's quick, delicious, versatile and goes with several dishes. Served with bread or vegetable sticks, it's perfect for a quick snack, and it's always a crowd pleaser at parties. Unfortunately, store bought hummus often comes with several unnecessary and unhealthy ingredients. Many times, there's even added sugar in it! If you'd like a healthier version, try this recipe. You'll have healthy home made hummus in just five minutes!
