Dairy-Free Potato Pie Smoothie

Vegan Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie

Sweet potatoes and yams are usually referred to interchangeably – I’m guilty of this, too. Throughout this blog, you’ll see me refer to recipes and ingredients as yams where they are, in fact, sweet potatoes. (Check out the Kitchn for a helpful tutorial to help you tell the difference.) I use the word ‘yam’ because I […]

Blackberry Prune Smoothie Bowl

Happy 2016 everyone! Many of us launch a new year with a litany of goals and intentions. Lose weight, get boyfriend, quit sugar, read more books, go to the gym. In the last few years, I’ve identified an annual set of words that will guide the 12 months to come. This year, however, I found […]

Dairy-Free Hot Chocolate Mix

DIY Edible Gift: Vegan Hot Chocolate Mix

I’ve never been a skiier, so I don’t have memories of tumbling indoors after a long day on the slopes, cheeks pink, ready to hunker down by the fire with a steaming cup of hot chocolate to warm my numb fingers. I am, however, no stranger to hot chocolate. On cold wintry days after playing in the […]

Awesome Dairy-Free Smoothie Tips

Summer’s almost over and I hope you’re not sad. I’m never bummed about the curtains closing on the summertime season. I was always a big nerd and loved the whole back-to-school vibe, and now as a grown-up I love fall because it involves the best food: butternut squash, pumpkin, apples, pears, cinnamon, onions, garlic, Brussels sprouts, […]

Blueberry Cacao Green Smoothie

I’m a creature of habit. Ninety percent of the time, if I’m making a smoothie, it’ll be this one, ’cause it’s my all-time favourite. (The other 10 percent is usually this chocolate delight.) It recently occurred to me that I’ve never shared my favourite smoothie recipe on this blog, though most of my nutrition clients […]

Lemon Lover’s Smoothie

I recently visited Toronto to spend some much-needed quality time with family, as well as play in Meghan Telpner’s pink kitchen. When I lived in Toronto, Parkdale wasn’t a trendy neighbourhood. I probably would have been scared to wander its streets even if I’d heard of it. After spending the winter in Meghan’s Parkdale oasis, […]

Butternut Squash Smoothie

Maple Butternut Squash Smoothie

  This recipe was intended for a new e-cookbook I’m developing. It was such a smashing success, though, I simply couldn’t keep it to myself. I need to share the scrumptiousness right now. I wonder if this will become a familiar pattern…? This smoothie tastes flipping fantastic. I had to be mindful and pace myself […]

Vanilla Bean White Hot Chocolate

I love a superfood hot chocolate as much as the next gal. Yet sometimes (gulp – please don’t be mad!) I’m simply not in the mood for the taste of chocolate. The other day I was at a loss because I had an extreme hankering for a hot, satiating drink, but was utterly uninterested in […]

How to Recover from Falling off Your Diet Wagon

I recently returned from a hometown visit to Toronto. I flew there for my father’s wedding and a party for my brother and his new wife, but when I arrived I descended into an unexpected flurry of commotion. My grandmother passed away mere hours after I landed, which meant a funeral, shiva and sorting through […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie

When I was growing up, my Grandpa brought us Baskin Robbins every single Wednesday night. We were never allowed to actually eat it when he arrived. This wasn’t parental torture – it was too late in the evening to eat ice cream, so we enjoyed it on Thursday nights for dessert. I always chose the […]
