Healing Update - Crohn's Disease

A 2016 Healing Update: The Crohn’s Disease Healing Continues

It’s been a good long while since I’ve posted an update on my path to heal Crohn’s disease. Last summer, a reader commented on a post to ask how I’ve been and if taking low-dose naltrexone (LDN) had worked. I gave a short answer – no – and promised a lengthier update tout de suite. And […]

Get Your Guide to Gluten-Free Flours

The world of gluten-free flours is a fun one to explore. When I was a ‘regular’ baker, I used all-purpose flour and that’s about it. Now, I have more than half a dozen flours in my pantry I can use to play and create. There are a multitude of gluten-free flours you can use for baking […]

Sesame + Sunflower Superfood Butter

Sesame + Sunflower Superfood Butter

I’m a fan of food mashups and wacky ingredient combinations. Whether it’s creating the love child of coconut butter and almond butter or incorporating kale into brownies, I’m always willing to toss a science experiment at the wall and see what sticks. I’ve made a lot of nut butters in my day and every time I think […]

Sesame Tamari Kale Chips

Tamari + Sesame Kale Chips

Oh, dear kale chips. It’s been awhile. A loooooooooong while. The last time I posted a recipe for kale chips was in 2012. That’s probably the last time I’ve eaten them, too, so it’s not like I’ve been creating awesome kale chip recipes and holding out on you. I cannot fathom why I haven’t been […]

Vegan Broccoli Stalk Soup

Vegan Broccoli Stalk Soup

As I’ve mentioned before, I feel strongly about preventing food waste. If you want to get on my bad side, wasting food will do the trick (though I really wish you wouldn’t). Here’s another way you can avoid it: make this broccoli stalk soup. Broccoli is a popular vegetable, and it wasn’t until a few years […]

Gluten-Free Blueberry Sage Muffins

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m a terrible gardener. Like truly, truly awful. The only plants that survived my good intentions were sage and rosemary. I can take no credit for this – those plants just kept growing, no matter what I did or didn’t do. We live in Vancouver, BC […]

Dairy-Free Mocha Almond Chocolate

Mocha Almond Dairy-Free Chocolates

Hello, friends! I’m popping in today to share a quick and easy recipe for dairy-free chocolates, which was inspired by the mocha almond fudge ice cream recipe I made a few months ago that I basically ate in one sitting. (No, no, I didn’t eat it all at once – but I was tempted.) As […]

Gluten-Free Prune Chocolate Brownies

Prune Chocolate Brownies (Gluten-Free + Dairy-Free)

Now that it’s February, are you ready to set the green smoothies and kale salads aside for some gluten-free chocolate brownies? Of course you are. These gluten-free and vegan prune chocolate brownies are sort of detoxifying, because prunes are loaded with fibre that helps us poop on the regular and eliminate harmful wastes. Just in case […]
