In many places, autumn means a chill in the air and an increased risk of colds or flus, plus with the holidays there are a multitude of unhealthy temptations that can degrade our health and leave our immune systems vulnerable. There are, however, a load of […]

Gluten-Free Side Dishes

Gluten-Free Ideas for Holiday Side Dishes

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who cook side dishes and those who don’t. I’m in the latter category. It’s not that I don’t enjoy eating sides, I’m simply too lazy to make them on a daily basis. I’m more of a one-pot or slow cooker kind of gal, especially during the […]

Dairy-free and Gluten-free Soup

A Simple Vegetable Soup

This soup is so simple I wonder if it even qualifies as a recipe. It’s more of a collection of ingredients that don’t take much time, skill or technique to prepare – and you probably don’t need me to tell you how to make vegetable soup anyway. But isn’t that what all recipes are – […]

What to do with squash seeds

Don’t Toss Those Squash Seeds!

As individuals, we toss $14.6 billion dollars worth of food away every year. When you include the food waste from restaurants, grocery stores, food manufacturers and farms, that amount rises to a staggering 31 billion. Our food waste not only impacts our environment, but is especially thoughtless considering nearly 850,000 people visit food banks every month […]

UnDiet Cookbook

An UnDiet Cookbook Giveaway!

Headshot: Catherine Farquharson/ Before we go any further, I need to declare that this review of The UnDiet Cookbook is not impartial or objective in any way. As many of you know, I interned with Meghan Telpner nearly four years ago (I actually kicked off my internship on the photo shoot for her first book, […]

Anti-Inflammatory Cookbook

I Co-Wrote a Cookbook and A Giveaway!

So, I co-wrote a cookbook a couple of short months ago. I was interviewed by the New York Post about it. And the cookbook is coming out this week on October 21! This might come as a surprise, since most bloggers who write cookbooks spend several years on the entire process from concept to completion. There’s writing a […]

How to Make a Gluten-Free and Vegan Pie Crust

How to Create Gluten-Free and Vegan Pies and Tarts

It’s easy to make a gluten-free pie crust if you can employ eggs and butter, or whip up a vegan pie crust when you work with glutenous flours. But a gluten-free AND vegan pie or tart crust? It’s the holy grail of allergen-friendly baking, and sometimes may even feel like it’s as impossible to conceive as the […]

Vegan Carrot Bread

Gluten-Free Carrot Bread

When this gluten-free carrot bread came out of the oven, I thought it was a fail. It crumbled when I tried to cut it, and the flavour seemed lackluster. I put it in the fridge overnight and since I hate wasting food, I gave it another chance the next day. (Food waste is one of […]

Gluten-free and vegan granola

Choose Your Own Adventure Gluten-Free Granola

One of the biggest challenges for Type-A personalities is accepting there are some (many?) things in life that we can’t control. We can’t prevent the morning traffic jam. We can’t manipulate other people’s habits and behaviours. We can’t direct the weather to be sunny and warm when we want it to be. We can’t regulate […]

Butternut Squash Breakfast Congee

Slow Cooker Squash Breakfast Congee

You never forget your first time…eating congee. Well, at least I didn’t. The story of my introduction to congee was certainly memorable, and like some first times of the naked variety, it did include a penis – that amusing anecdote can be found over here. Congee has always been one of my go-to comfort foods when I […]
