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. I distinctly remember sitting in my first naturopath’s office a decade ago as she told me I had candida and needed to eliminate all sugar (even fruit), […]

As a child of the 80s, it has always struck me that I’m part of an age group that straddles the old and the new. My generation remembers what it’s like to use rotary phones and payphones. We recall getting up to change TV channels and writing letters on customized stationary using brightly coloured pens […]
There are a lot of ways to learn information online these days. In recent years, I’ve signed up for a multiple online conferences or summits and soon experienced ‘summit fatigue’, opting in for everything but listening to nothing. If you’ve ever felt content overload then you know what I mean! The online Culinary Nutrition Conference is […]
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 […]
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 […]

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 […]
Endless inspiration surrounds us. I’m inspired by those who reach out to others with kindness. I’m inspired by incredible acts of courage. I’m inspired by the little guys who stand up to the big guys. I’m inspired by the countless charitable and non-profit organizations that work to make our lives better, safer, healthier and happier […]
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 […]
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 […]
