mini beef meatloaf recipe

Mini Beef Meatloaf with homemade mashed potatoes and peas is one of my favorite fall meals. I like making a big batch for Sunday night dinner and enjoying the leftovers all week, including making a meatloaf sandwich the next day!

If you’re not so much into leftovers, you can made a dozen and freeze the remaining meatloaf for up to two months and enjoy when you have a busy weeknight. Just defrost and reheat in an ovenproof dish for 15 minutes at 350F. (more…)

Meal Prep: Vegetarian Bibimbap Quinoa Bowls

I’ve been trying to do more weekend meal prep lately and am trying to add more vegetarian dishes into my rotation which is how I came about adapting this Bibimbap Quinoa Bowl recipe from one that I spotted in Cooking Light this month.

Instead of beef, I subbed in vegetarian soy crumbles and they were still packed full of flavour. Between that and the quinoa, I definitely felt like I got enough protein out of this meal. You can use ground beef if you’d like! Here’s how you can make this at home:

We lived in Los Angeles for the past three years and haven’t been able to experience a proper fall season in awhile. I automatically have a craving for soup when the weather gets cold. Which is funny, because my craving for ice cream is truly year-round.

I’ve been trying to do more weekend meal prep lately, just so I have some healthy lunch options and don’t just default to pizza or burgers. I was inspired this month by a bunch of great meal prep recipes in Cooking Light and finally found some time to try this one out! (more…)

I might not do everything on this list EVERY Sunday, but I make sure I get at least 2-3 things out of the way so I’m not thinking about having to do them all week. Here are my secrets to making Mondays suck less: (more…)

Speedy Weeknight Meal: One Pot Pasta

Pasta

By: Amanda Pereira

Eating healthy is always on my To-Do list. And I imagine it’s on nearly everyone’s wish list and resolutions and birthday goals. But it’s hard, especially with a full-time job, and a hungry belly and nothing but cereal in the pantry.

Getting home in time to cook can sometimes feel like an insurmountable obstacle, but it doesn’t have to be. Along with meal prep, which is becoming more and more popular across the internet, there are a host of easy meals that aren’t too taxing for your late evening.

My favourite go-to meal for hurried weeknight dinners is my veggie-heavy version of a classic one pot pasta. There are no firm rules here, just a commitment to lots of healthy fiber-rich vegetables, easy to cook pasta and very little clean up! See my recipe after the jump… (more…)

Meal Prep: Easy Breakfast Burritos

breakfast burritos

I have recently embraced breakfast burritos because they are ridiculously easy to prep all at once and they are packed full of protein – giving me lots of energy to get through work until lunch.

I’ve purchased pre-made frozen breakfast burritos before, they taste great – but some are often loaded up with sodium and I like the idea of being able to customize what goes into my breakfast burritos – like adding lots of spinach. Here my recipe…. (more…)
