The secret to indulging my “I want pasta” mood…is the most honoured spaghetti squash. It’s the most magical vegetable in my universe. It also needs to be smothered in cheese. Because.
And no, I don’t need a real reason. Cheese doesn’t need a reason. Ever Continue reading »

Ya’ll know I’ve been a Vega fan for years. It was always my favourite and the most used protein in my cupboards. You also know I’m smoothie obsessed. Ridiculously so. When I was a young teenager I was a raw & vegan…so this was my Continue reading »

Coffee has become a better friend than ever. I’ve adjusted my schedule quite drastically and I now get up outrageously early so that I can go to the gym before my morning classes hit. While this night owl still gets used to getting up while it’s still dark, coffee has become a staple.
Hot or cold, it’s a blessing.
However, currently my favourite way to enjoy it is as a post-workout breakfast…and yes, protein in the shake and whipped cream on top. I’m that girl. Serves 2.
Low Carb Frappuccino
- 2 cups almond milk, unsweetened
- 1 tbsp. heavy cream (opt)
- 8 stevia drops*
- 1 tbsp. instant coffee
- 1 scoop of whey protein, unsweetened
- 1 tray of ice
- Cinnamon and nutmeg, to taste**
*I used vanilla flavoured NuNaturals – I use this for everything, no joke
**Or you can use these spices just for a pretty dusting on top of the shake
Blend everything in a high speed blender. Pour into two glasses, top with whipped cream (optional for you – necessary for me!) and serve.
This recipe can be made vegan as well, simply omit the cream and use a plant based protein instead of whey.
Are you a coffee fan? What do you like better – hot or cold?

I’ve been working more on meal prep these days. I’m in a hurry, and my easy, fast recipes keep getting faster. I think cooking/baking should be a relaxed, laid-back experience…and it hasn’t been lately.
However, I’m working on it. I’m trying to literally give myself an hour or Continue reading »
