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 […]

Persian Rice-Stuffed Butternut Squash (from 200 Best Sheet Pan Meals)

Persian Rice-Stuffed Butternut Squash (Sheet Pan Meals)

When I saw the premise of this cookbook, I was immediately intrigued: cook an entire meal on one pan, with only a single cooking dish to wash up? I’m sold! 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 […]

Creamier Mexican Chocolate Frosty (dairy-free, paleo & vegan)

If we can rely on the weather forecaster (and let’s cross our fingers that we can… for once), much of this week is going to feel like summer in June around here! Perfect, warm, sun-drenched days and I couldn’t be happier to get an extra dose of Vitamin D before the snow starts to fly and […]

Late Summer Peach & Almond Porridge (gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, vegan)

Hey guys, it’s been 37 days since I last posted a breakfast recipe and since you know how much I adore breakfast, I figured it was high time for another! This is a sweet easy late summer breakfast porridge, it’s mostly raw (if you use raw almonds), and there’s no cooking involved. It also consists […]

Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls (gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, vegan)

Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls

It’s very uncommon for me to eat, and even rarer for me to post on this blog, a recipe that calls for ingredients so out of season as pumpkin. This time of year we’re craving greens, fresh herbs, vegetables of every kind, strawberries, cherries, maybe even a stone fruit or two, but definitely not pumpkin. […]

Shaved Brussels Sprouts Slaw with Maple-Spiced Dressing (from the From Scratch Cookbook)

Brussels sprouts salad with pear, apricot, almonds and spiced-maple dressing

I am super excited, thrilled, pumped, enthusiastic and exhilarated(!) to be participating in a brand-new cookbook called “From Scratch: Over 40 recipes from our Culinary Nutrition Experts”. It’s a mouth-watering and gorgeously designed compilation of recipes crafted and generously shared by some of the fall 2013 graduates of the Culinary Nutrition Expert program. The book is […]

Favourite Peachy Keen Coconut Crumble (gluten-free, vegan friendly)

Apple crumble and peach crumble

Let me say right off the bat: this is one of my ‘go to’ recipes. I made this or a variation of it five or six times this summer. Probably because it’s too delicious, easy and quick—I can usually make it in 10-15 minutes (faster if you use frozen fruit) + 20 minutes cook time. It […]
