The leaves are slowly starting to fall and the chill is slowly setting in ( and I mean slowly, because as I’m writing this post, Toronto is supposed to have 20+ weather this whole week!) But hey, we’re not gonna let the confusing Toronto weather squash our excitement for Fall, are we?

Legumes are an excellent source of protein and can easily replace your typical meat-heavy recipes. For example, lentils can replace beef in sheppards pie, tempeh (fermented soy beans) can replace your beef in a bolognese sauce and can also become tempeh “bacon” to replace the usual pork bacon.
