Endless inspiration surrounds us. I’m inspired by those who reach out to others with kindness. I’m inspired by incredible acts of courage. I’m inspired by the little guys who stand up to the big guys. I’m inspired by the countless charitable and non-profit organizations that work to make our lives better, safer, healthier and happier […]

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 […]

Vegan Broccoli Stalk Soup

Vegan Broccoli Stalk Soup

As I’ve mentioned before, I feel strongly about preventing food waste. If you want to get on my bad side, wasting food will do the trick (though I really wish you wouldn’t). Here’s another way you can avoid it: make this broccoli stalk soup. Broccoli is a popular vegetable, and it wasn’t until a few years […]

Gluten-Free Blueberry Sage Muffins

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m a terrible gardener. Like truly, truly awful. The only plants that survived my good intentions were sage and rosemary. I can take no credit for this – those plants just kept growing, no matter what I did or didn’t do. We live in Vancouver, BC […]

Mocha Almond Dairy-Free Chocolates

Hello, friends! I’m popping in today to share a quick and easy recipe for dairy-free chocolates, which was inspired by the mocha almond fudge ice cream recipe I made a few months ago that I basically ate in one sitting. (No, no, I didn’t eat it all at once – but I was tempted.) As […]

Prune Chocolate Brownies (Gluten-Free + Dairy-Free)

Now that it’s February, are you ready to set the green smoothies and kale salads aside for some gluten-free chocolate brownies? Of course you are. 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 Potato Pie Smoothie

Vegan Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie

Sweet potatoes and yams are usually referred to interchangeably – I’m guilty of this, too. Throughout this blog, you’ll see me refer to recipes and ingredients as yams where they are, in fact, sweet potatoes. (Check out the Kitchn for a helpful tutorial to help you tell the difference.) I use the word ‘yam’ because I […]

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 […]
