    Matcha Latte

    Matcha latte is a tasty beverage made from powdered green tea leaves. Matcha powder can be found in the tea section at your health food store, and while it is slightly more expensive than other types of tea, you’ll want to keep it on hand! Matcha latte may help boost your focus, concentration, and thinking abilities. A great source of polyphenols, green tea may also help prevent several types of cancer.

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
