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 […]

Homemade Coconut Milk

In the last year, I’ve made a variety of nut and seed milks. But for some reason, I found coconut milk intimidating. I worried I couldn’t create a version that tasted as delicious as one that came from a carton or a can. You know what? Making coconut milk uses exactly the same process as […]

Vegan Mango Lassi

A short while ago, I attended a strange yoga class. Limbs were flying. Breath was quick and heated. The music was spunky. I could certainly see why other people were enjoying themselves, but it wasn’t the gentle, soothing flow I needed and it made me grumpy. To top it all off, when the class was […]

A Simple Green Smoothie

I hate to sound like a broken record, but salads are not my favourite thing. If you twist my arm I’ll admit they’re growing on me, though they still remain a few rungs above extreme distaste in my hierarchy. So when I discovered last year that green smoothies were to become my staple breakfast during […]

Spicy Cinnamon Superfood Hot Chocolate

Everyone wants to peek inside a nutritionist’s kitchen, right? Don’t deny it. We have an innate curiosity about how the healthy folks live and want to know their secrets so we can copy them. I spent the last three months working for a gal who cured herself of Crohn’s disease, and I was as eager […]
