There are so many reasons to love beans! High in protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals, beans are a tiny yet mighty superfood. Personally, I prefer using dried beans – they’re cheaper, contain no additives and – best of all – can be cooked in special ways to make them more digestible.

Have you ever made a recipe simply because you like the way it sounds? Coffee Caramel Crunch. Birthed into being because I like the alliteration. But maybe you aren’t that superficial (you probably don’t judge a book by its cover, either). You gaze beyond a recipe title to assess the ingredients, the instructions, the do-ability. Once you […]

During the third week of CSA season, we went away for a getaway on Salt Spring Island, which is off the southern coast of BC and is a haven for nature enthusiasts, foodies and artists. Since we took Daisy (our dog) with us, we spent a lot of time outside and driving around from park […]

My Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) season has begun! CSAs are when you purchase a share in a local farm and then receive a weekly mystery box of fresh vegetables and fruits. For me, that means I’ll be visiting my local farmer’s market, with my doggie in tow, to pick up produce for the next 20 weeks. […]
A decade ago, if you had asked me to name a whole grain other than wheat I would’ve been totally stumped. Now, the world of gluten-free eating has opened me up to a wide variety of grains, including millet, sorghum, amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, teff and wild rice (If you’d like the scoop on gluten-free grains […]
Are sugary goodies constantly calling your name? I’ve been there, and my struggle to overcome sugar addiction is what inspired my latest cookbook The Candida-Free Cookbook and Action Plan.
