Spinach Chicken Stuffed Peppers + Lemon Garlic Tahini Sauce.

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a new recipe but before I do, I wanted to give a little life update.

2018 is the fresh start I’ve been needing. Normally, I would say don’t wait until a new year for a fresh start, but in my case that’s how it worked out. January 3 was moving day!

6 months, 1 sublet, temporarily moving in with my parents.
Countless nights spent in hotels/crashing at friends places.
Over 25,000 kms and hundreds of hours driving back and forth.
Getting a place then it burning down 10 days before move in.
Most of my belongings packed away in boxes for half a year.
It’s an understatement to say I couldn’t be happier to finally be moved in and officially HOME.

That’s right – I’m back in Toronto after a very restless 6 months.

The last while has been a challenge and transitional time in my life. It’s left me feeling so grateful for so many things, especiallyfor the people who have been with me every step of the way. I could not be happier and more thankful <3

(The photo above isn’t my new home because I don’t have photo of myself there just yet, but that’s coming! Once everything is in order, I’ll have a post up giving a tour.)

So, now that my life is in order again, I’m back on the meal prep train. Here’s what a whipped up this week to enjoy as the days get a hectic.

Healthy eating isn’t hard, but it does require planning. Take a few hours out of your day to plan, shop + prep. It will save ton of time during the week ahead!

I made:
Spinach Chicken Stuffed Peppers
Chimichurri chicken
Roasted broccoli
Caramelized Brussels sprouts with turkey bacon
Spinach salad
Hard boiled eggs
Chia pudding – matcha, vanilla cinnamon and salted cacao tahini
Cut up lemon to easy add to water
