Coconut chia pudding with mango and pineapple salsa blog_vertical

If you’ve ever been to my little foodie corner before, you may know that I kind of adore breakfast! In fact, it might be my favourite meal of the day—and yet for many, it’s a meal that involves a lot of same old, same old, a meal that can be hard to plan for, and […]

The Blue Ginger Smoothie (dairy-, gluten- & soy-free)

Blue Ginger Smoothie

A few weeks ago I was prepping some workplace wellness handouts for a workshop I was delivering outside Toronto. The topic was the basics or building blocks of smoothies (a very popular topic, in my experience!) and I covered tips and tricks on how to turn a smoothie into a satisfying and satiating meal. I […]

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.

In many ways I feel like I was born to write this post. Because, to put it mildly, my boyfriend is not friends with too many vegetables. Corn, carrots, potatoes, and raw cauliflower (!) and that’s about it! Green vegetables? Not a chance. So in the 5+ years we’ve been together, I’ve come up with […]

Cool as a Cucumber Smoothie

Cool as a Cucumber Smoothie - Feat

Raining cats and dogs… Shakin’ in my boots… Cool as a cucumber… these are all expressions I use on a regular basis. However, if you had asked me last night whether I was feeling “cool as a cucumber”, I definitely would have said noooooo! The violent weather throughout Ontario spawned a tornado that touched down […]
