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 […]

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, […]

Vegan Egg-Free Tofu Scramble

Greek-Style Smoked Tofu Scramble

My last post for Food Bloggers of Canada shared my favourite ways to create egg-free brunches. Then I realized it’s been awhile since I’ve shared a new recipe for an awesome vegan breakfast. This is one of those recipes that was simply meant to be. In the eggless brunch article, I tossed out the idea […]

How to Create Breakfast and Brunch Without Eggs

I constantly encounter people whose major struggle when they change their diets is figuring out what to eat for breakfast. I find people have a much easier time navigating lunch and dinner with food allergies and intolerances, happily transitioning from glutenous pasta to brown rice pasta or swapping cashew milk for dairy in their soups […]

Gluten-Free, Vegan Avocado Toast

Simple Avocado Toast + A Vegan Omega-3 Giveaway

Writing a food blog pushes me to innovate and create, because I’m a creature of habit. Don’t get me wrong: I’m not the meticulous kind of gal who eats the exact same things over and over, like your ‘ol Gramps who begins the day with a bowl of oatmeal and a handful of prunes. I […]

Curry-Flavoured Lentil and Oat Granola

My mom never bought us sugary breakfast cereals, no matter how much we begged. Our cupboards were crammed with corn flakes, rice krispies, Special K and cheerios. Nothing that strongly influenced the colour of the milk. I considered her denial of froot loops and cinnamon toast crunch downright unfair. In hindsight, I should have shut […]

Halvah Flavoured Gluten-Free Oats

Halvah Flavoured Oatmeal

In the interest of public service, I strive to come up with healthy breakfast recipes that taste like dessert. I take no pleasure in it, really. I’m simply a humanitarian. I do it for the children. The idea for halvah flavoured oats sparked very suddenly, as many recipe inspirations do, except this one burrowed deeply […]

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 […]

Loaded Morning Muesli

People are constantly asking me how they can incorporate more veggies into their diets, and breakfast is the answer. When we nibble on toast and bagels and pancakes, we’re missing an opportunity to load up on nutrient-rich vegetables. That’s why I’m a huge fan of non-traditional breakfasts. Soups, savory porridges, kale and broccoli bowls, this […]
