3-Ingredient Cookies - Salted Dark Chocolate Sunbutter

Salted Dark Chocolate Sunbutter 3-Ingredient Cookies

You’ve probably seen recipes for 3-ingredient cookies floating around the internet. I even posted one many years ago, back in the days when I ate eggs and white sugar and peanut butter like it was going out of style. It’s a simple recipe: equal parts sugar and nut butter plus one egg. And you know what I […]

Mixed Berry Coconut Ice Cream

Mixed Berry Coconut Ice Cream

Way back in January, when I decided to eliminate sugar for a month, I bought a 2-kilogram bag of mixed berries. I thought, ‘Berries are naturally sweet. I’ll have more smoothies!’ You know what dampens the desire for smoothies? Freezing temperatures, snow and ice, and then rain until the end of May. And so, those berries […]

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 […]

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 […]

Sesame Tamari Kale Chips

Tamari + Sesame Kale Chips

Oh, dear kale chips. It’s been awhile. A loooooooooong while. The last time I posted a recipe for kale chips was in 2012. That’s probably the last time I’ve eaten them, too, so it’s not like I’ve been creating awesome kale chip recipes and holding out on you. I cannot fathom why I haven’t been […]

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 […]

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 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 […]
