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 [...]

Take it easy. Relax. Don’t worry about it. Chill out. Loosen up. We’ve all heard these phrases before when we’re feeling stressed or anxious; however, the ability to unwind is easier said than done. If you’ve got stress in your life, you’re definitely not alone. In Canada, where I live, nearly one in four Canadians [...]
I adore hummus as much as the next person, but chickpeas (as well as other beans and legumes) can be difficult to digest because of their high content of protein and complex carbohydrates. While there are numerous ways to eat more beans and toot less, I wanted to create a creamy, hummus-like dip without the [...]
Are you sick of sweet potato recipes yet? I’m not. There really are endless ways to use those babies. Apparently February is sweet potato month, and I had no clue. Good thing I’ve already been celebrating them all month long, like with this crust and yummy pie. This play on falafel is smoky and sweet, [...]
Remember the gorgeous flatbread I created a few weeks ago? I’ve made it a few times since, and had a hunch that I could adapt it slightly to make a simple crepe batter. Mission accomplished. Now you have this tasty, easy and versatile wrap you can cram with whatever strikes your fancy. I packed mine [...]

Of course I always loved Valentine’s Day candy, especially the next day when it went on sale. My consumption was insane – we’re talking fistfuls of Hershey kisses and as many cinnamon [...]
I have a motley crew of mismatched glass jars in my pantry that are full of beans and legumes. I love using dried beans because they are way less expensive than canned, plus they don’t have that pesky toxic BPA. Using dried beans also means planning and foresight. But what if you forget to soak [...]
Have you guys heard of Bhutanese red rice? My rice awareness was essentially limited to the brown, wild and white varieties, until I read about the wide array of rice options in Alive Magazine. If you’re so inclined, you can read further about red rice over at Lotus Foods, but here’s the Coles Notes version: [...]
What goes swimmingly with a sweet potato crust? Why, a sweet winter squash, of course. This dish reminded me of the spicy butternut squash pie I made a few months ago, except this one is tastier. It was even more creamy and soufflé-like (thank you, cashews), with a bright savory pop of tangy red pepper. [...]
Last week, I turned on the oven to preheat it and began to grate a large sweet potato. It wasn’t till I finished that I realized the oven had not ignited and was totally busted. As I gazed at the pretty heap of delicate orange shreds I was now stuck with, I shrugged and resigned [...]
