Blueberry Lavender Dairy-free Ice Cream

Blueberry Lavender Dairy-Free Ice Cream

During the summer we vacationed on Salt Spring Island, a small heavenly oasis in British Columbia’s Southern Gulf Islands. There isn’t a single traffic light on the island and the roads are dotted with farm stands where you pay for produce based on the honour system. While we’ve visited twice before, we’ve never been during the […]

Blueberry Compote + Tips for Stewing Fruit

Blueberry Compote + Tips For Stewing Fruit

I haven’t posted a new recipe in over two months but I have a good reason: it’s tough to blog about food when you’re not eating very much of it. I’ve mainly been subsisting on broth, green juice, soup, dairy-free elixirs, low-fibre smoothies and stewed fruit like this recipe for blueberry compote. The reason? Another bowel […]

Salted Dark Chocolate Sunflower Seed Butter

This ain’t nutella. It’s not even close – for a delicious version that is, check out this decadent chocolate spread (and it’s nut-free to boot!). I hope you’re still with me, because if you are you will be rewarded with a luxurious pleasure. I’ve long been a fan of sunflower seed butter (sunbutter), so much […]

Pumpkin Kale Scones

Savory Pumpkin, Kale and Almond Scones (Gluten-Free + Vegan)

It could be said that I have unusual tastes when it comes to food. In fact, it has been said. I don’t mean I’m the type of person who eats adventurously, like the people who will eat intestines and fried grasshoppers. I’m way too much of a scaredy-cat for that. But I am the gal […]

Quinoa + Lentil Breakfast Hash

Quinoa + Lentil Breakfast Hash

Do I have to tell you I’m a fan of savory breakfasts? Cause I’m pretty sure I’ve already mentioned it oh, only a few times – and you’re probably sick of hearing it. Sometimes people tell you stuff over and over and you’ve just got to smile and nod. Like when my Grandma used to tell me every […]

Turmeric Rice with Raisins

Golden Turmeric Rice with Raisins

Why is it that everyone loves grapes, but hates raisins? Think about it. I’ve never seen a plump red grape languishing on a fruit platter, and the wine industry is certainly thriving. But if a raisin-hater mistakes a raisin for a chocolate chip in a baked good? This happens: It might not surprise you to learn […]

Beet, Cashew + Carrot Dip

Beet, Carrot + Cashew Dip

Perhaps you’ve heard the news: it’s been cold and snowy in Vancouver. While it may surprise you to hear that wintry weather in Canada made the national news (aren’t we used to our igloos by now?), my mom has texted me on three separate occasions from Toronto to announce that my adopted city’s climate was indeed […]

Gluten-Free Green Bean and Tomato Muffins

Savory Green Bean and Tomato Muffins (Gluten-Free + Vegan)

Food gifts are the absolute best. I’d choose a handful of fresh herbs from your garden or a thoughtfully prepared gluten-free granola in a jar over a crisply-wrapped gizmo any day. This week, I found myself with a surplus of green beans. I was gifted a thick packet – along with a handful of cherry tomatoes […]

Is baking with flaxseeds dangerous?

Is baking with flaxseeds dangerous?

Is baking with flaxseeds dangerous? An excellent question! Five and a half years ago, I wrote a blog post answering this question. Well, sort of. I initially wrote the post when I was in the throes of nutrition school. I was totally overwhelmed by new, exciting and terrifying information, and overly enthusiastic to share it with […]
