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 [...]

(Looking for healthy dessert recipes, or tips for how to eat deliciously on a budget? Then check out my e-books here.) I wholeheartedly believe that if you can read, you can learn to cook.

When I was growing up, my Grandpa brought us Baskin Robbins every single Wednesday night. We were never allowed to actually eat it when he arrived. This wasn’t parental torture – it was too late in the evening to eat ice cream, so we enjoyed it on Thursday nights for dessert. I always chose the [...]
(Looking for healthy dessert recipes, or tips for how to eat deliciously on a budget? Then check out my e-books here.) Basil is one of those herbs I don’t use enough.

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 [...]
A few weeks ago, I went to a new vegetarian restaurant here in Vancouver called The Parker, where I ordered a dish called Hazelnut Dukkah. I had no clue what dukkah was. I didn’t know if it was a spice, a vegetable, or the name of a cooking style. All I knew was that it [...]
