Shanghai Lettuce Wraps From The 3-2-1 Method

A lot of you have expressed wanting to include more plant based eating as part of your nutrition goals. For many of you, this doesn't necessarily mean going 100% vegan or vegetarian, but just including more plants altogether. In line with that, this recipe is not vegetarian, but likely includes a lot less meat that you would typically include and way more veggies, without sacrificing the flavor or satisfaction of the dish.

Lemon Coconut Energy Balls And Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls

Energy balls, energy bites, energy truffles...whatever you want to call them, I am a HUGE fan of these little guys. I make a batch almost every week for quick grab and go snacks. These are perfect for those days I have back to back appointments with clients. I can literally pop them in my mouth with 2 minutes to spare and they will hold me through until my next spare 2 minutes.

Wonton Soup -- Just Like Ma-Ma Used To Make

Wonton Soup is probably my ultimate comfort food. As far back as I can remember, my Ma-Ma (my Chinese Grandma) used to drive up to Kamloops to visit us every summer. I always looked forward to her annual ritual of folding fresh wontons to stock us up for the winter. I remember sitting at our kitchen table as she showed me her trick to make the folded edges of the dumplings stick.
