Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Gluten-free peeps, rejoice for the coming of the great cinnamons sugar donut is here and it is baked, and ready for the eating! This is one of those moments whilst they were baking that I wished very hard for smell-o-blogging but oh well I am sure it will come soon enough for now you’ll just have to make these cinnamon babies for yourselves to find out just how good they smell and taste!

These donuts are also ridiculously easy to make dairy free (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk in mine), you can also sub white  sugar for a less refined sugar like coconut sugar! This recipe yields 12 donuts.

Raspberry Mango Smoothie Bowl

Smoothies in a glass is so last season, so mix it up this spring and put it in a bowl! I find the advantage of a smoothie bowl is that you can bump up the nutrition by adding extra fruits, nuts and seeds on top, even nut butters! For the Amber Approved Magazine spring edition I concocted a super simple and basic smoothie bowl that allows you to play with different toppings as you desire! Featured on my smoothie bowl is shredded sulphite free coconut, chia seeds and fresh raspberries and blackberries!

Butter Chicken

This recipe for butter chicken has all the right stuff going on, I adapted mine from a Canadian Living recipe (I just added in some more spices because I felt the original recipe lacked flavour). It is soulful and packed with healthy fats from almond butter and amazing anti-imflammatory spices like turmeric and cinnamon. Trust me, that if you were not a curry fan before then you will be after this succulent Indian classic!

Tip: get ready the night before, and turn on the slow cooker in the morning before leaving for work!

Crispy Kale Chips

It is hard to believe how much I despised kale before having it in a caesar salad at Una Pizza here in Calgary. To be honest, I always saw it as lizard food because my gecko snacked on it (that to me as a kid said a lot). Grown up Chelsea, has since realized how delicious kale is and while I may be a tad late hopping on the kale train, here is my delicious kale chip recipe. I guaranteed to be crispy, light and healthy.

In case you are wondering what my spice of choice is, it is The Silk Road Spice Merchants, Inca Fire Salt but according to a friend, their dill pickle seasoning would also do the trick! Whatever your spice of choice may be, these chips will be sure to please!

Okay, so this salad was born out of a rad trip to the Calgary Farmers Market this weekend. I have to give a huge shout out to the Cherry Pit for their amazing pre-shredded cabbage, carrots and amazing bunches of kale and cilantro, as well to Bee Land for your amazing honey! Spring time is always amazing for finding fresh inspiration and healthy eats.
