Gluten-free Buckwheat Polenta

Gluten-Free Buckwheat Polenta with Roasted Asparagus + Tomatoes

A decade ago, if you had asked me to name a whole grain other than wheat I would’ve been totally stumped. Now, the world of gluten-free eating has opened me up to a wide variety of grains, including millet, sorghum, amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, teff and wild rice (If you’d like the scoop on gluten-free grains […]

If you want to incorporate more veggies into your life, breakfast is the time to do it. We’ve talked about this before – instead of consuming toast or muffins or bagels or other sweet carb-y things, focus on creating breakfast dishes that include loads of vegetables such as savory oats, smoothies, breakfast scrambles, steamed veg […]

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 […]

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 […]
