2017 Culinary Nutrition Conference

Free Online Culinary Nutrition Conference

I’ve been sharing a lot about the Academy of Culinary Nutrition lately, but with good reason: spring is a very busy time for us! I wanted to ensure you don’t miss out on this free, live online conference, which is happening next week on Wednesday, May 10. There is a spectacular slate of experts that […]

Want to Become a Culinary Nutrition Expert?

In this role, I get to connect with students from all over the world and help them facilitate their personal and professional growth. When I interned with […]

Some Friday Links (Um, They’re About Me)

Happy Friday! I love my little corner of the web, where I can share my favourite recipes with you and (hopefully) inspire excitement about allergen-friendly eating. I’m humbly grateful and flattered when others ask me to share my insight and experiences with their audiences, too. I typically promote these interviews via Facebook and Twitter, but […]

Cornmeal-Crusted Carrot Fries

This was my first foray into making fries using a root vegetable other than sweet potatoes. Truth is, I’ve known for a long time that you can whip up a batch of healthy fries using a multitude of options like carrots, parsnips, butternut squash and jicama. So I’m not sure why I’ve never tried it […]

Curried Veggie Paté

This paté is a delightful combination of sweet and spicy. At first bite you might think, ‘Oh, this is too sweet’, but then you’ll be hit by the savory notes of the curry powder and go, ‘Nah’. Gourmet culinary folks probably think I shouldn’t be calling this paté, since paté is technically a spreadable mixture […]

Neopolitan ‘Ice Cream’ Cake

On Friday, I celebrated Food Revolution Day by throwing a potluck party. I wanted to honour real food and real ingredients, but let’s be honest: it was actually an excuse to make this cake. When you mostly cook for yourself or for one other person, it’s difficult to justify making a dessert that calls for […]

Gluten-Free Lentil Loaf

Lentil Loaf Stuffed with Garlicky Cauliflower Mashed ‘Potatoes’

Some days are perfect for green smoothies and kale salads. Others are meant for heartier fare, like this loaf. It’s like eating meat and potatoes, without the actual meat or potatoes. It’s even perfect for the lazy folk, who don’t even need to expend the effort to scoop more than one forkful – all of […]

The Ultimate Pot Pie Filling

Why am I posting a recipe for a filling, instead of one for an entire veggie pot pie? Because it’s amazing. The best ever. It elicits the comforting sensations induced by roaring fires, molten chocolate lava cakes and puppies. You’ll want to eat this on its own. I sure have. (Also – I’m not good […]

Easy Cream of Asparagus Soup

(Looking for healthy dessert recipes, or tips for how to eat deliciously on a budget? Then check out my e-books here.) I wholeheartedly believe that if you can read, you can learn to cook. However, I appreciate that preparing food is intimidating and daunting for some people. Plus, the popularity of gourmet cooking shows has […]

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 […]
