15 Savory Vegan Breakfast Ideas

Throughout North America, we’ve devolved into downing sweet treats that are basically desserts for breakfast. I’m not criticizing desserts; sweetness in our lives is important, especially when they’re natural and nutrient-rich. Yet breakfast is a time when we are literally breaking the fast since we ate dinner the night before, which could be anywhere from […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Just Beet It Muffins

I am often enticed by the lure of brightly coloured beets at the farmers market or the grocery store. I genuinely like the taste of beets. I love their incredibly detoxifying nutritional benefits. Yet I’m often at a loss for what to do with beets besides steaming or roasting them. I regularly gaze at them […]

Chocolate Granola

A significant portion of this granola was intercepted by my belly on its way to the storage jar. It all started with the decadent, heavenly aroma that permeated the house. Then I began gingerly breaking off small chunks to nibble on as the granola cooled. Before I knew it, I couldn’t stop grabbing for more. […]

Buckwheat and Oats Waffles

I haven’t made waffles in years. It’s difficult to find a recipe that has no gluten, dairy, eggs or soy. Though I have no problem with eggs or soy, the husband does. And I’m not about to make an entire batch of waffles for myself while he gazes at them with longing. These waffles were […]

Cookie Dough Baked Oatmeal

Who likes the idea of eating nutritious cookie dough for breakfast? Um, me. Obviously. I know you’re thinking that ‘cookie dough’ and ‘healthy’ are contradictory terms that can’t be used next to one another, but it’s true. This baked oatmeal is low in calories, high in protein and it’s a good source of fibre. It […]
