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.

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 […]

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 […]
