Butternut pumpkin pasta has long been a staple during the winter months and despite the visuals that spring to mind (Mmmm butter!) this is not a sauce-heavy pasta. In fact, the thing we love most about this dish is that it’s so damn tasty you don’t even miss all that sauce! The whole wheat flavour of the pasta balances perfectly with the roasted pumpkin and salty overtones of cheese, making this meal absolutely delicious! So here it is, check out Naturally Ella’s recipe for an easy prep weeknight pasta featuring savoury roasted pumpkin with butter, parmesan, walnuts, and rosemary.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, which means it’s time to get thoughtful when it comes to what’s going under that tree.

At Cali, we’ve made it our mission to develop and create the perfect smoothie. With the growing community health scene, the demand for smoothies is off the charts and there are certainly a bunch of places offering them up; but that doesn’t necessarily mean that all of them are good for you. Certain smoothies on the market have been shown to contain up to an alarming 31 teaspoons of sugar, while others can pack even more empty kilojoules than you’ll find in a Big Mac! Yikes! So in case you were wondering how it works at Cali, we want to give you some insight into how we’ve concocted our range of super delicious smoothies to skip the nasties and spike the superfoods.

So when we were asked if we thought we could find a veggie burger that didn’t make us feel like we were missing out on the meat, we jumped at the challenge! And, lo and behold, we found it!… “The Beet Burger”, discovered over at one of our favourite foodie blogs “Green Kitchen Stories”. So here’s the recipe for Cali’s recommendation for the ultimate kind of guilt free veggie burger.

So, how are we supposed to do it all when all we want to do is lay down?
We asked Sami Bloom for some great tips that will have you feeling better in no time.
