Parent Guilt and How To Deal With It

Simply put, parental guilt means different things to different people—and the reasons for it are as varied as parents themselves.

Muffuletta

Have you met muffuletta? It's a stuffed-to-the-brim Italian sandwich that can stay in your fridge for several days; so grab a wedge when you need a little nosh. The longer it sits, the better it tastes.

Yellow Squash Turmeric Tofu Scramble

Tofu acts as a flavour sponge, so it needs a bunch of seasoning to really shine. In this recipe, cumin and turmeric add flavor, Dijon mustard adds a necessary “eggy” taste, and the almond milk–nutritional yeast mixture makes it more like a creamy, soft scramble. The yellow squash and its egg-like color intermingle with the tofu, adding a bit more veggie punch to your breakfast.
