Roasted Beet Hummus

Beet-mus (Roasted Beet Hummus)

Well, well, well. Doesn’t this look festive? I strongly suggest you invite roasted beet hummus, or beet-mus as I like to call it, to show its pretty face at your holiday table. Can you schmear it on Brussels sprouts and turkey? No, not so much. But it does make an excellent healthy, allergen-friendly appetizer when […]

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 […]

Maple Vanilla No-Bake Granola Bars

It only takes seven ingredients to pull together a batch of these delicious no-bake bars. They’re high in protein, packed with whole-grain fibre and healthy saturated fats, and they’re naturally sweetened. Head on over to the Genuine Health sports nutrition website for the recipe! ‘Cause while I’m athletically challenged, I can still use protein powder […]

Root Veggie Loaf (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

Parsnips and carrots are distant relatives. In my mind, the parsnip is like that weird and graceless cousin who shows up to your family barbecues with nothing interesting to say. It’s the vegetable you want to like because, you know, kin is kin, but you simply can’t get past the pale and hairy exterior, the […]

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 […]

Popped Sorghum Squares

These were supposed to be popped sorghum balls. Then I got lazy, because it was Sunday afternoon and my book was waiting to be read and I didn’t want to spend extra time fastidiously shaping popped sorghum balls, despite how cute they probably would have looked in a photo.  So out came the loaf pan. […]

Savory Kugel (Gluten-Free and Vegan)

I didn’t grow up in a strict, fanatically religious household, but we were observant. For us, practicing Judaism meant more than going to shul once a year and eating chocolate gelt during Chanukah (and, sorry to tell you, we did not get eight presents). I went to Hebrew school two afternoons a week, and attended […]

Roasted Figs and Plums

Do you mind if I unload on you for a moment? We’re less than two weeks into September and already everyone has set their sights on pumpkin: pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin curry. It’s driving me batty. Don’t get me wrong, I’m as in love with fall flavours as the next gal. […]

Grain-Free Plum Crisp

My balcony garden was a semi-bust this summer. Sure, the herbs did well. But my spinach died, the bees didn’t visit my zucchini, and raccoons ate the few strawberries that bloomed. Some of you might be flush with end-of-summer produce right now, eager to find creative ways to eat it, freeze it or preserve it. […]
