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 […]

Basil Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (dairy-free)

Basil Chocolate Chip ice cream (dairy-free)

I’m sharing this recipe because there’s a chance that one day someone who’s adventurous (crazy?) like me, who loves to throw ingredients normally expected in savoury dishes into sweet desserts, just might love this little ice cream recipe as much as I do. Chocolate + fresh basil + coconut milk + sweetener = the best […]

Yellow Plum & Ginger Cheesecake Parfaits

Last year around this time, I mentioned the idea of using tart plums as a stand-in for the sourness of lemon in various dishes. I’m back at it this season with these dreamy Yellow Plum Cheesecake Parfaits. They consist of a ginger cookie base, ricotta-based cheesecake filling, a plum and Goji berry compote, and are […]

Turmeric and Honey Chai Latte featured

Throughout the summer, I love nothing more than sipping on a cold drink, served over ice, with lots of spicy notes, a hint of honey and a splash of creamy, milky comfort.

Chia pudding usually consists of small black or white chia seeds, soaked in a liquid, with or without additional flavourings, spices and/or sweetener, until the seeds plump up, absorbing up to 10+ times their weight […]

6 Easy Ways to Encourage Family to Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

6 Easy Ways to Get Your Partner to Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

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 […]

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. […]
