Blueberry Lavender Dairy-Free Ice Cream

During the summer we vacationed on Salt Spring Island, a small heavenly oasis in British Columbia’s Southern Gulf Islands. There isn’t a single traffic light on the island and the roads are dotted with farm stands where you pay for produce based on the honour system. While we’ve visited twice before, we’ve never been during the […]

How to Make Anything Vegan

Vegans, vegetarians and people with food allergies and intolerances are accustomed to making substitutions in recipes. This skill materializes naturally to some of us (not me!), while others develop the talent with time (yep, that’s me!). It takes some trial and error to learn how to make anything vegan, and during the early years there […]

Blueberry Compote + Tips for Stewing Fruit

Blueberry Compote + Tips For Stewing Fruit

I haven’t posted a new recipe in over two months but I have a good reason: it’s tough to blog about food when you’re not eating very much of it. I’ve mainly been subsisting on broth, green juice, soup, dairy-free elixirs, low-fibre smoothies and stewed fruit like this recipe for blueberry compote. The reason? Another bowel […]

It’s a simple recipe: equal parts sugar and nut butter plus one egg. And you know what I […]

Mixed Berry Coconut Ice Cream

Mixed Berry Coconut Ice Cream

Way back in January, when I decided to eliminate sugar for a month, I bought a 2-kilogram bag of mixed berries. I thought, ‘Berries are naturally sweet. I’ll have more smoothies!’ You know what dampens the desire for smoothies? Freezing temperatures, snow and ice, and then rain until the end of May. And so, those berries […]

A Guide to Understanding Fats: Myths and Reality

Let’s face it: nutrition advice can be confusing. One area that’s rife with misinformation is fat. I’m sure many of us remember the low-fat craze, where we ate low-calorie cookies (Snackwells anyone?) and low-fat yogurt and egg whites and were absolutely terrified of fat grams. We’ve spent more than half a century fearing fat and believing […]
