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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ode to Summer + Chocolate for Breakfast

Ode to Summer + Chocolate for Breakfast

It seems as though fall is finally arriving. With the last few days reaching above twenty degrees (Celsius that is) it has been an unusually hot October. Now that it actually feels like autumn, I think it’s best to say a formal “goodbye” to summer.

Forever Nuts Loaf + A Challenge

Forever Nuts Loaf + A Challenge

The other day I was in a Davids Tea in downtown Kingston. They had a great deal where if you bought two tins of tea you would get the third one free. I’m a big tea fan so this deal was pretty great for me. I spent […]

Orange Raspberry Muffins

Orange Raspberry Muffins

This summer was a pretty weird one weather wise. Since it rained almost everyday my garden was thriving! It was luscious and green, but due to the lack of hot days nothing was ripening. So, when I left for school I gave my mom one […]

Golden Turmeric Latté

Golden Turmeric Latté

It’s no secret that this summer hasn’t been very “summery”. Sure, we got spoiled with some spectacular 30 degree dock days, but those were usually incompassed by about 7 straight days of rain. Needless to say the wearer has been less than ideal and I […]

Perfect Roasted Garlic Hummus

Perfect Roasted Garlic Hummus

There are some things that just put me in a really fantastic mood. Making a perfect batch of hummus is one of those things. You may think that that makes me very lame, but my argument is that you have to enjoy the little things in life […]

Easy Coconut Chia Pudding

Easy Coconut Chia Pudding

I am forever a fan of simple things. Honestly, the simpler the better. This past week I’ve been looking after my aunt’s dogs and living in her house while she’s on vacation with her family and it’s been a blast. There is something very strange […]
