Sweet and salty yogurt parfait

Who doesn’t love a salty-sweet snack? This Greek yogurt parfait is the snack, especially if you’re craving a little dessert after dinner! While we don’t recommend too much snacking before bed, this nutritious treat is loaded with protein from Greek yogurt and almonds. Protein will satisfy those evening snack cravings and balance your blood sugar. This snack is also high in magnesium, a mineral that plays a role in producing melatonin and preparing our bodies for sleep.

While many aspects of our physical and mental well-being can be affected by lack of sleep, did you know that not getting enough shut eye can also have an impact on your food choices?

Chickpea Salad

Tuna and egg salad are popular sandwich fillings, but these days, we may be missing some of our usual staples. What if you don’t have ingredients, like eggs, in the fridge? Or, maybe you’re transitioning to a vegetarian diet? This chickpea salad recipe is the perfect high fibre and vegetarian protein packed sandwich filling that uses a common pantry staple – beans (aka pulses)!
