Lately I’ve been running around in the morning that I don’t have time to make breakfast. Luckily I always have a healthy stash of these homemade granola raw bars. These energy bars are gluten free, vegan, and made with organic ingredients whenever possible! I love…
Enjoy these brightly flavoured citrus bars as part of a healthy breakfast or carry them with you for a snack any time of the day. They freeze well, so why not make a double batch? This recipe comes from Voula Halliday’s Eat At Home cookbook.…
The Good Bean chickpea healthy treats are healthy snacks on the go, gluten-free and nut-free! One serving has the equivalent protein as almonds, fiber as two cups of broccoli and folate as three cups of spinach! These nutritious snacks are low fat appetizers, low cal snacks, and crunchy compared to chips.
The Good Bean all natural roasted chickpea snacks comes in a variety of flavors.
- Sea Salt
- Cracked Pepper
- Smoky Chili & Lime
- Sweet Cinnamon
- Mesquite BBQ
- Thai Coconut
I first discovered The Good Bean with my SnackBox Subscription of health snacks delivered to my door! The Smoky Chili & Lime of crunchy roasted chickpeas were delicious. Their roasted spiced chickpeas recipe was addictive! But I wondered what nutrition facts it had.
Each serving size has approximate 7g protein, 6g fiber, and low sodium. The Good Bean uses ingredients that are easy to understand such as roasted chickpeas, expeller-pressed safflower or sunflower oil, coarse salt, and natural Vitamin E. So really, I am snacking on vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, non-GMO, Hexane free. The Good Bean uses clean ingredients that are Fair Trade and follows Good Manufacturing Practices. Good for me. Good for the environment!
So next time you see yourself craving for that bag of processed chips, reconsider! Try a healthier alternative to deep fried potatoes. I really want to try the Thai Coconut flavor. It sounds like the perfect dessert recipe!

So happy to find my November’s Snackbox sitting on the kitchen counter after my trip to San Francisco! And after August’s Snackbox Review and September’s Snackbox Review, I was excited for Snackbox’s new branding. The box looks great with the red squirrel and squirrel monogram on the…
There hasn’t been a lot of really good bubble waffles lately, until now. Recently opened in Aberdeen Mall. Bubble Waffle Richmond Aberdeen Centre 街頭美食(雞蛋仔) offers delicacies served by street vendors, food carts in Hong Kong. Curry fishballs, mixed rice canonoli, fish siu mai dumplings, etc. In fact the line ups here were nuts! We waited over 30 mins and still people were pouring in.
Bubble waffles 雞蛋仔 3.75: Crispy on the outside, warm and tender on the inside. Quite opposite from the stale ones over at Rainbow Cafe (Parker Place). It is moist and is complete with a fragrant egg and milkiness. Also comes in other flavours: Strawberry, sesame, green tea, chocolate and cheesecake.
Hong Kong Rice Roll Combo: Curry fishballs, rice canonoli and fish siu mai 5.50: had a lot of spice and were quite bouncy. Fish Siu Mai weren’t as good as I imagined, but still decent. 4 fish balss, 4 siu mais and lots of rice canonolis. Compared to 3.50 for just 6 fish siu mais this was clearly the better deal.

There are so many things to do in Vancouver when summer is here. One of the many is indulging in greasy food at the Night Market. This year there are two night markets in Richmond. One being the Richmond Night Market (by River Rock Casino);…

Sometimes after consuming too many cakes and cookies I feel that my taste buds requires me to touch base with my Eastern heritage with some Chinese desserts. Sadly there is not an abundance of dessert places in Vancouver (even Richmond) that features traditional dessert soups, puddings, and dumplings… With the few that are available not everyone does it right. Luckily, Bubble Fruity Richmond 桂花林馳名甜品 came to the rescue. Situated on Saba Road, just off from Richmond Centre, Bubble Fruity brings nostalgic childhood memories. The shop is brightly colored in green and orange. A simple hideout without a lot of fuss. This “mom and pop” shop has magazines, big screen TV, and bubble tea available for you to gather…
Their dessert menu has quite a bit of variety. From your basic Coconut Sago Soup 椰汁西米, Mango Sago Cream 楊枝甘露, to Almond 生磨杏仁糊 , Sesame Paste Soup 芝麻糊… to Dumplings with Wine 酒釀丸子. The portions are hefty and soups are not watery (some places water it down to save a few bucks, but certainly doesn’t keep loyal customers). Aside from sweets, there are also savory snacks – pork cutlet noodles, sandwiches, and thick toasts. Something for everyone! Even if you don’t have a sweet tooth!
Fresh Mango, sago and grass jelly (extra mango) 新鮮芒果西米涼粉 +鮮芒果: big chunks of mango. You can request extra mango also!
Fresh Philippine mangoes are delightful and sweet. Sago cooked perfectly and paired intimately with grassjelly (aka Herbal Jelly 仙草) FTW (for the win)! TIP: Always ask for extra mangoes. It is so delicious!
If you ever have a chance to come here , be sure to also try the Mango Pomelo Sago Cream 楊枝甘露! Wish I had taken a picture for you, but every time I come here, I simply devour it like no tomorrow!
