Rainbow Vegetable + Shrimp Lettuce Wraps | Recipe

Rainbow Vegetable + Shrimp Lettuce Wraps Recipe Have you been craving a good wrap recently? Packed full of flavour and fresh ingredients, these rainbow veggie and shrimp lettuce wraps won’t disappoint! And instead of reaching for those wheat or corn wraps, why not swap in lettuce for a bit of a healthier version? Top off with some cilantro for a fresh and flavourful meal, perfect for the warmer months ahead! I’m excited to be teaming up again with reebee on this recipe (see the first recipe I teamed up with them on for Slow Cooker Lasagne Soup here!) to help you find everything you need at the best price- yummy food and saving moolah? Sign me up!

These wraps only take a few minutes to make and are loaded with healthy, fresh ingredients.

I enjoyed mine with some crumbled tortilla chips for some extra crunch, and you can also top off with a simple peanut sauce (see below) for a kick of extra flavour. These can be a little messy to eat, so the trick is to use the lettuce leaf to cradle the fillings, or scoop everything to the outer edge of the lettuce leaf and roll in from there. But no matter how you eat them, these lettuce wraps will satisfy- serve as a side dish or make a big batch to serve as a meal on their own. Find the recipe below + how reebee can help you save on your weekly grocery bill + more!

Pool Floaties 2019 Edition

Pool floaties 2019 Pool floaties 2019

Summer is right around the corner and let’s face it, what’s Summer without a trip to the beach, pool, or lake? I’m starting to think about what to do, where to go, and if we need to pick up anything along the way and with lots of water activities and camping on my ever- growing Sumer bucket list I can’t resist eyeing up all the cute pool floaties out there. A few years back I shared some favourites- see that post here– and it got a lot of love so I thought I’d share another round up since they seem to get more fun every year!

While most of these are for the grown-ups and big kids, there are a few for the littles in the family as well (that watermelon pool and rainbow ring!). Some of these are a bit of a splurge, but most of them are pretty budget- friendly and a perfect addition to your Summer bucket list. A few Summers ago we picked up a giant swan and it’s been a hit with the kids, but I definitely found a few more putting together this post that I’d love to have for the Summer (that monstera leaf and double hearts!). Here’s to a fun Summer, even if it’s still a few months away! 😉

Where to Buy

Top to bottom, left to right

Shooting Star | Ice Cream Cone | Monstera Leaf

Pink Glitter Ring | Diamond Ring 

Watermelon Pool | Toucan (or check out this cute kiddie toucan)

Mermaid Tail (find a kiddie mermaid tail here) | Double Hearts

Shark | Rainbow Cloud | Jelly Fish 

Heart | Avocado | Baby Rainbow Ring

Angel WIngs | Peacock

Hello Spring Printable

Hello Spring Printable grey

Hello Spring! Who else is sooo happy for this season? For our family it means it’s time to start getting the garden ready, clean out all the Winter layers from the closets, and enjoy more time outside. It’s also the time of year where all the pretty flowers are starting to make an appearance (I’m watching my lilac tree like a hawk waiting for it to bloom) and whenever possible, bring them home to enjoy indoors in amazing-smelling bouquets. I love that this season brings a bright and refreshing vibe after all the coziness of Winter, so to celebrate this beautiful time of year I’ve created two free printables to welcome Spring.

Welcome the season with a pretty Spring Printable!

Pick from two colour options for this Spring printable to suit your mood and home: grey for a more new neutral look and watercolour blush for a pop of colour. All you have to do is click, print + enjoy! Scroll to the end of this post to download the PDF of the colour you want to print and choose a pretty frame to display it in. Does it get any easier than that?

Tip: To save on ink, instead of printing at home, order these as an 8″*10″ photo print from your favourite local store (Staples, London Drugs, etc). You can also scale these down to fit smaller frames, just adjust the size when you go to print/ order prints.

Slow Cooker Lasagne Soup | Recipe

Slow Cooker Lasagne Soup Recipe

Heading into Spring, we’re stepping away from heavier foods and turning to lighter options. This lasagne soup is one of those recipes that is hearty and filling and is a great way to get in a healthy serving of veggies. I’m excited to be teaming up with reebee on this recipe to help you enjoy easy-to-make, healthy comfort food, and to help you whip up your favourite recipes at the best price.

Make it on the stove top or slow cooker, either way this lasagne soup is a yummy, simple recipe.

I based this recipe off of one of my favourites from Liv B’s cookbook, Vegan on a Budget, and adapted it a little for our family. Every time I’ve made this soup it’s been a hit, and I thought I would try making it in the slow cooker for this blog post for the added bonus of extra convenience and it doesn’t disappoint. Her recipe for Famous Lasagne Soup caught my eye when I was first going through the pages and knew it would be one my family would love. Her original recipe is a vegan one so I swapped in a few different ingredients and have made this soup with and without meat, both turning out equally delicious; I also made ours with gluten-free lasagna noodles, but of course this is a simple substitution you don’t have to make if you don’t need to.

Slow Cooker Lasagne Soup Recipe Ingredients

I love that this is a healthy comfort food option that is simple to make, especially if you’re using a slowcooker, and thanks to reebee, I can help you find where to stock up on the ingredients you need at the lowest price. Our family has used reebee for a few years and it is our go-to resource for finding the best prices for our weekly grocery list. Whether it’s for regular items that we use all the time, or big-ticket purchases, reebee is a great resource right at your fingertips.
