About Me

HI, I'm so happy you're here! I’m Kayla, a wife, and mama of two little guys, with a passion for healthy living, especially when it pertains to food.


I care about what I eat, ALOT. Eating plant-powered food allows me to feel my absolute best! Of course eating this way nourishes my body and beyond that, I find so much JOY out of cooking healthy food for my family and others.

Originally I started this blog as a passionate outlet while at home with two little boys. Sharing my love of vegetables through healthy recipes & inspiration online, turned into food prepping for clients in their homes. Shortly after realizing I can only be in one person’s home at a time, I expanded to working out of a commercial kitchen where many more plant-powered to-go meals are created to feed many more people! 

You can find The Roasted Chickpea meals in stores and coffee shops throughout Castlegar, BC and the surrounding area or pre-order and pick-up your meals on Wednesday locally (new menu posted each week, order by Saturday).


Specializing in plant-based and gluten-free healthy meal prep, I aim to fill the gap for those on the hunt for something quick, delicious & nutritionally dense, while also suiting special dietary needs & preferences. And with an abundance of recipes right here on my website, you can make your own at home!

Now offering grazing table catering for your next event, find out more information here.

I also love connecting with others, supporting and working with healthy lifestyle and food brands. I love to collaborate! Contact me here.

My hopes are to provide fulfilling plant-forward recipes that are even enticing and approachable for all. Everyone could use a little more vegetables in their lives!

~ Kayla
