These tacos are made from whole food, plant-based ingredients, offering a balance of fiber-rich complex carbs, protein, good fats, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants – for optimal nutrition, energy, and satiety. I provided two protein options, black beans and tempeh, which you can make one or both of, depending on your personal taste. Many of my clients are sensitive to soy, but typically handle tempeh well, seeing as it is a fermented whole food, rather than a processed (GMO) soy product. This versatile recipe creates enough food for multiple meals, and can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The different components (smoky black beans, slaw, mango salsa, BBQ tempeh) can also be enjoyed in ‘taco bowl’ form (minus the tortillas), or as meal accompaniments. Preparing a big batch of these ready-to-eat dishes, you can easily mix and match the items, assembling quick and healthy meals to eat throughout the week!
This delicious and nutritious ‘complete meal’ plant-based salad is a fantastic source of vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber. Using cauliflower instead of couscous (pasta) or rice, provides a lower-glycemic (less starch) and more nutrient-dense dish.
While tomatoes are no longer in season, fresh cranberries are available now, which inspired this recipe. Like tomatoes, cranberries are sweet and acidic, which makes them a delicious ketchup base. Naturally high in pectin, cooked cranberries provide a lovely thick sauce!
I made these nutritious and delicious seasoned nuts & seeds as holiday gifts for friends and neighbours. They make for a protein-rich snack, or as a salad topper – for texture and good fats!

Getting your kitchen set up for efficient, enjoyable meal prep will certainly help motivate you to spend more time cooking. I often encourage clients to set aside some time to clean out their pantry and organize their cooking space, making their lives easier in the kitchen.
