Lemon Blueberry Popsicles


Popsicles are the PERFECT summer treat for me. I personally am not a huge baker, as you may have noticed from the distinct lack of baking recipes on my blog. I love treats, don’t get me wrong, but I just find everything so expensive here in Canada and I would much rather just mix a dab of honey with almond butter and cocoa powder and eat that with a spoon than actually put in the effort to turn on an oven. Especially on a hot summer day!

These popsicles came to me because a flavor I am constantly craving is lemon blueberry loaf. I don’t know why…but it has left an imprint on me! I think I had it once, and the thought of it has never left me. I should probably at least attempt muffins sometime soon. Fat Burning Chef has a lemon loaf I could add blueberries to as well, hmmm.

Back to popsicles though.

They’re greeeaaaat!

Easy to make, pretty healthy as far as treats go, and homemade popsicles are pretty much always better than store bought anyways. It’s basically a home run.

In case you want to know where I got my molds…I don’t know. I can’t remember!!! I went looking in a bunch of local shops recently and I couldn’t find any there, either. I found a few cool ones on amazon though! So check that out if you are in need.


Lemon Blueberry Popsicles

Makes 4
1 cup frozen blueberries
4 ice cubes
4 tbsp. coconut milk
3 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. honey


1. Blend all ingredients together in a blender. If it is too thick to blend or there is not enough to fill the cups completely, you can use a bit of cold water to level it out.

2. Pour or scoop blended mixture into popsicles and freeze until fully frozen, minimum 2 hours.

3. To remove from popsicle molds, run under hot water until they loosen up.


There you have it! It’s easy and they are really delicious. Sweet and tart and cooling on a hot day. Don’t be fooled though…they are really good on a cold day, too!

Tangy & Sweet Mustard Chicken Legs


This chicken recipe…ooooh this chicken recipe! I’m sorry, but it is just so tasty I can’t help but get really really excited over it. Finding a new glaze that isn’t full of preservatives, sugar, soy, etc. makes me oh so happy inside! I can’t wait to slather some of this all over some chicken thighs, I think that would be wonderful as well! I think it would even taste good on pork chops…hmmm.


But really though.

It’s so good.

The reason it’s so good is a combination of tangy, peppery, creamy and sweet flavours coming together on top of delicious, tender meat. Oh yeah. The different flavour notes combine to make these chicken legs unforgettable!


Tangy & Sweet Mustard Chicken Legs

Makes 2 Chicken Legs (serves 2)

2 tbsp. Honey Mustard (I use a local, low sugar, sweetened with real honey variety, erabaille brand)
1 tbsp. coconut milk (canned)
1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Mix together sauce ingredients. Smear on top of 2 chicken legs.

3. Place in oven for 45 minutes or until cooked through. Chicken should read at least 160 degrees on a cooking thermometer before being eaten.

Paleo Lunch Series: Salad Time!

I just had this realization that I have completely neglected the ‘paleo lunch series’ that I had wanted to do on this blog. I’m not sure why seeing as I take my lunch to work pretty much everyday, so I should have a plethora of content to show you on the subject. I think I kind of forgot that I had even wanted to do that. Keeping track of everything is so difficult for me! At work I literally have 50 drafts in my inbox all of ideas that suddenly came to me that I needed to write down. And those are just the ones I haven’t done anything with yet!


Now that’s its heating up outside (yay) I am gravitating towards salads for lunch! Back in the day I was a romaine girl, but I have a new found love for spring mix, and spring mix with spinach too. It’s easy to find organic, and most are pre washed which makes life soooo much easier and me much more likely to actually eat it. Plus I’m pretty sure there are a lot more nutrients in this as opposed to romaine, which seems like mostly water. Here is a great combo I had the other day! Chicken, carrots, red pepper, red onion on top of spring mix, with some farm boy Italian dressing on top.


Farmboy has amazing dressings most of which are olive oil based only (YAY!) and all tasting really good. If you have a Farmboy locally I really recommend you buy their dressings if you need something easy and convenient. Trust me on this one!


Balsamic Vinegar, olive oil, honey, garlic, dried red pepper.

Packing this and maybe an apple with some almond butter is a great and delicious lunch that WILL satisfy. I recommend pre cooking some chicken so you can grab it and go! I do this and then my boyfriend and I will make different meals out of the chicken. This go around I had mine on salads, while he had his turned into butter chicken! It worked out well for both of us.

Just remember, if you are also a romaine person, why not try something new? I didn’t used to like spring mix…too bitter. Palettes change though, so it’s always worth trying something again!
