Gluten-Free Prune Chocolate Brownies

Prune Chocolate Brownies (Gluten-Free + Dairy-Free)

Now that it’s February, are you ready to set the green smoothies and kale salads aside for some gluten-free chocolate brownies? Of course you are. These gluten-free and vegan prune chocolate brownies are sort of detoxifying, because prunes are loaded with fibre that helps us poop on the regular and eliminate harmful wastes. Just in case […]

From Scratch Cooking 2016

From Scratch Cooking 2016: an E-Cookbook For Charity

Sometimes, the weight of sadness in the world feels like it’s crushing me. When I read the post ‘All the things that softly kill me‘ last week by Danielle Laporte, it was as if she was channeling the folds of my brain. We live in the same city, so I see the type of men […]

Win a Copy of My Second Anti-Inflammatory Cookbook!

I’m a huge fan of recipes that are no-fuss, simple, healthful and delicious. I’ve had numerous workshop participants exclaim ‘That’s it?!?’ after watching me create a recipe. A couple of months ago, I announced the arrival of my first cookbook, Anti-Inflammatory Diet and Action Plans. The feedback on this book has been incredible, and thank […]

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 […]

Dairy-Free Mashed Yams

Naked Mashed Sweet Potatoes (Vegan)

Some foods taste better when they are simple and unadorned – and sweet potatoes unquestionably fall within that category. I use sweet potatoes in all sorts of recipes: blended into dips, as the base for crusts, in chocolate pudding, and of course in soups. Sweet potatoes make everything taste better. But my favourite way to eat them is steamed […]

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 Side Dishes

Gluten-Free Ideas for Holiday Side Dishes

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who cook side dishes and those who don’t. I’m in the latter category. It’s not that I don’t enjoy eating sides, I’m simply too lazy to make them on a daily basis. I’m more of a one-pot or slow cooker kind of gal, especially during the […]

UnDiet Cookbook

An UnDiet Cookbook Giveaway!

Headshot: Catherine Farquharson/Documentographer.com Before we go any further, I need to declare that this review of The UnDiet Cookbook is not impartial or objective in any way. As many of you know, I interned with Meghan Telpner nearly four years ago (I actually kicked off my internship on the photo shoot for her first book, […]

Anti-Inflammatory Cookbook

I Co-Wrote a Cookbook and A Giveaway!

So, I co-wrote a cookbook a couple of short months ago. I was interviewed by the New York Post about it. And the cookbook is coming out this week on October 21! This might come as a surprise, since most bloggers who write cookbooks spend several years on the entire process from concept to completion. There’s writing a […]

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 […]
