Try Teff (+a recipe for gluten-free Blueberry-Lemon Teff Porridge)

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! […]

Meghan’s Rawmazing Key Lime Pie (dairy-free, soy-free, grain-free, gluten-free and raw)

In cooking, as in life, we sometimes make mistakes we can’t undo. Maybe we add way more salt than a stew needs, maybe we substitute sugar for salt in our favourite gluten-free muffin recipe, or maybe it’s forgetting a key ingredient that just “makes” the dish what it is. Fortunately, I didn’t make any mission […]

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 […]

Coconut-Vanilla Chia Pudding with Cherry-Rhubarb Compote (dairy-, gluten- and grain-free)

If you’ve ever tried chia pudding, you’re probably in one of two camps: you love it, or you hate it. 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 […]

Lazy Girl’s Ginger Lemonade

Lazy Girl's Ginger Lemonade

This quintessential summer bevvy is a bit like me: refreshing, tart and spicy. Okay, probably more tart than anything! There’s nothing that seems to quench the thirst better than lemonade on a hot summer day, am I right? Except maybe a frosty cold b-e-e-r, but we’ll save that for another day. I’ve had homemade lemonade […]

Lazy Girl’s Granola (dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, vegan)

Lazy Girl Granola with coconut milk kefir

Do you ever have mornings when you just don’t have the time or energy to make a big breakfast? Of course you do. I know I do! Which is why I wrote a cookbook called 10+ Breakfasts You Can Make in 10 Minutes or Less. This cookbook is perfect for people like me who love […]
