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 […]

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. […]

Loaded Morning Muesli

People are constantly asking me how they can incorporate more veggies into their diets, and breakfast is the answer. When we nibble on toast and bagels and pancakes, we’re missing an opportunity to load up on nutrient-rich vegetables. That’s why I’m a huge fan of non-traditional breakfasts. Soups, savory porridges, kale and broccoli bowls, this […]

Salted Caramel Pecan Swirl Ice Cream

Do you dig the sweet ‘n salty treats? I used to think these were opposing flavours that could never be best friends. Flakes of sea salt on my chocolate? Nah, I’d rather just flick ‘em off. As many of you already know, adding a bit of salt enhances sweetness, especially in baked goods. Given that […]

Quick Pickled Radishes

  My grandparents had a tiny apartment kitchen with only a couple of feet of counter space. How my grandmother managed to cook voluminous holiday dinners, including matzo ball soup, gefilte fish, brisket, kugel and honey cake, is beyond my comprehension. A thin drawer next to the fridge pulled out to reveal a worn, built-in […]

Homemade Sesame Tahini

Jars of tahini used to last a long time in my house. I’d use a daub here, a spoonful there, but overall it was a condiment that was plucked out of the fridge sparingly. This is no longer the case. I use heaps of tahini in smoothies, dressings and sauces. I slather it on toast […]

Collard Wrap Cucumber Sushi Rolls

Last year, I made these tasty Greek-inspired collard wraps and promptly forgot about them, until this fabulous lady brought veggie collard wraps to a potluck party at my house. Suddenly I was struck with the thought that collards might make an incredible substitute for nori sheets in sushi. And I was right. Can you still […]
