Rustic Leek and Potato Soup

Rustic Leek and Potato Soup

Funny story, a few weeks ago (Maybe a few months ago?) I needed a few potatoes for a recipe and my mom picked up a gargantuan bag of russet potatoes. Well, I still have about three quarters of the bag in my pantry… Being more […]

Immune Boosting Citrus Juice

Immune Boosting Citrus Juice

When it’s 30 below outside and the gloominess of winter is really starting to sink in we could all use a bit of a pick-me-up. It feels as though I’ve hardly seen the sun in the last few months (today being a rare exception) and […]

Dreamy Nut and Seed Butter + Raw Chocolate Orange Energy Bites

Dreamy Nut and Seed Butter + Raw Chocolate Orange Energy Bites

In my eighteen years on earth I have only been to Costco three times, but what magical times they were. Weird fact about me: I love grocery shopping. When I go to a new place I love scoping out the local grocery store and browsing the isles. This activity is especially interesting when traveling abroad (I highly recommend that you give this activity a try). You would be surprised by all the cool stuff that you may find. Anyway, back to the point. For me Costco is like an elevated grocery shopping experience. First off, Costco is huge and secondly, it has so many interesting products. One of the products that I particularly like is the nut and seed butter. It’s creamy, delicious and also the only nut butter I’ve ever had that has chia seeds in it. This sounds weird, but it’s actually really good. (more…)

Cranberry & Apricot “Buttermilk” Scones

Cranberry & Apricot “Buttermilk” Scones

By taking a quick glance out the window it looks as though it’s April out there. Everything is wet, there are only tiny patches of snow remaining and the sky seems to be eternally grey. In case you didn’t know, April is one of my […]

Loaded Spirulina Smoothie Bowl

Loaded Spirulina Smoothie Bowl

I’m a big time green smoothie lover and recently I’ve been doing some experimenting with new ingredients. About a month ago I ordered a few specialty health food items that are a little bit difficult to find around where I live. One of those items […]

Winter Vegetable Dahl

Winter Vegetable Dahl

As the holiday season winds down, it seems as though cold and flu season is just starting to rev up, for me anyway. I’ve ben waking up to itchy ears, a stuffy nose and a nasty sinus headache. For the last two weeks I’ve been teaching skiing to children under the age of five, which has left me exhausted (I’m partially attributing my oncoming illness to this). I’m also attributing my terrible back pain to the constant lifting and dragging of small children up and down a ski hill. I was at the chiropractor today and his comment was “wow, you’re really stiff”, I would like to call this the understatement of the year.  (more…)

Welcome Home Mac ‘n “Cheese”

Welcome Home Mac ‘n “Cheese”

Lots of exciting news to share. First thing’s first, this past Friday my big sis left on her big Scottish adventure. Emma is on exchange in Scotland for the next five months. I am hopeful that I will have a chance to head over to the […]

Ginger Molasses Cookies

Ginger Molasses Cookies

  Hi all! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. My family had a three-day Christmas celebration this year and I must say I’m pretty worn out from all the festivities. I’ll give you a little run-down of how my holiday went. With t-minus […]

Pumpkin Spice Waffles

Pumpkin Spice Waffles

I feel as though we kind of got cheated on autumn this year. We went from the crappy, raininess of August to the unbearably hot days of September and October and now we’ve just survived the yuckiest month of the year (in my opinion), November. Where did the nice, picturesque fall days go? The ones where you can comfortably walk around in jeans and a light sweater, or take artsy pictures with friends whilst hiking. To commemorate the fall that did not actually happen I have taken some of the greatest flavours of fall to create a super yummy (and easy) breakfast food that is sure to please a crowd. (more…)

Pick-Me-Up Green Smoothie

Pick-Me-Up Green Smoothie

During this time of the year I think we all could use a bit of a pick-me-up, right? I’m usually pretty tired when I get home from work, but the fact that it starts to get dark at around 4:30 is definitely not helping to […]
