Tomato, Strawberry and Basil Sorbet (from The Best Homemade Vegan Cheese & Ice Cream Recipes)

In my garden, the tomatoes are still producing strong! I planted heritage varieties of Chadwick Cherry tomatoes, a sweet, plump, slightly larger cherry tomato size than the norm, as well as Black Seaman tomatoes, a large, bigger-than-your-hand, dark red-purple tomato. I found these tomatoes had trouble ripening evenly, with lots of cracking with our summer […]

You’re Invited! Inspired to Taste Canada (with the authors of the “True North” cookbook)

Hi guys! I have so much to share with you, including a quick, crunchy, kid-friendly snack cookie (that’s also nut-free!). I still have to resize the pictures but watch for it between now and late next week. For now, I wanted to let you know about the third and final Inspired to Taste Canada event […]

Apple Pie of My Eye Smoothie Bowl - feat sm

Apple Pie of My Eye Smoothie Bowl (gluten-free, grain-free, vegan)

Spring has had a rather faulty start so far around here (with more “spring” snow and snowstorms than I can even remember), so I haven’t had my go-to breakfast, smoothies, on the brain much. But the warm-ish temperatures announced for this weekend can only mean two things: garden work (hooray!) and the return of the […]

4 Easy Scientifically Proven Ways to Boost Health in Your Workplace

Offices and other workplaces often get a bad rap for being unhealthy environments.

Fortunately, […]

Hand me the recipes and point me toward the kitchen. All of this cookbook’s recipes are straightforward and use ingredients you likely already have in […]

My Try Something New series showcases a new health practice, food or ingredient in a new way. They are highly nutritious foods that offer great variety and nutrition to your diet and if you’re in Canada, they should be easy to find. Since I think healthy eating should be straight-forward, that’s a no-brainer for me! […]

Soothing Oven-Stewed Pears sm

Soothing Oven-Stewed Pears (gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan)

My motto for the holidays is straight-forward and always the same: keep it simple. Keep it simple, simple, simple.  It extends to business events, outings with friends and family, holiday parties, and naturally, it also extends to food. Earlier this fall, The Honest Leaf based in Toronto sent me samples of three of their tea […]

Big Protein Beet & Quinoa Salad - title

Big Protein Beet & Quinoa Salad (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free)

Even though my interest in leafy green salads has started to wane with the arriving seasonal chill, my favourite kinds of salads, whether cold or hot, are still the ones with more vegetables than anything else. The vegetables may be diced small and evenly or they may be chunky, big, wild pieces that say in no […]
