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 and fun about living on your own (even if only for a short time). Since it’s just me here the fridge isn’t exactly over-stocked, but I do have my staples on hand: almond butter, hummus, sauerkraut, fresh veg and a big ol’ jar of coconut chia pudding. I’ve been really in to meal prepping items in bulk recently and this chia pudding has become one of my “go to’s”.  (more…)

Raw Chocolate Energy Bites

Raw Chocolate Energy Bites

In the days leading up to my school trip to Boston I was baking up a storm. As you can probably imagine the food on school trips is a far stretch from gourmet, but for people with intolerances and specific diets, such as I, the […]

Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Lentil Salad

Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Lentil Salad

I am a lover of breakfast. That is a true and simple fact. It is hands down my favourite, and most creative, meal of the day. Naturally, because of my love for breakfast, I tend to lean mostly towards developing breakfast recipes and posting about […]

Morning Toast Three Ways

Morning Toast Three Ways

Sometimes I find that it’s best to keep things simple. I’m a big time planner when it comes to food; I always try to plan out each meal ahead of time to make my life a little easier. Most of my Sunday mornings are spent at the kitchen table flipping through cookbook after cookbook to decide what I want to have on hand and eat over the course of the upcoming week. Based off of my decisions, I compile a list of ingredients to stock up on. In my mind this is a wonderful system, but my family seems to find it bizarre and unrealistic (I beg to differ). Meal planning is a great way to reduce food waste and to prevent that dreadful moment where you open your empty fridge with a rumbling stomach and a lack of ideas. (more…)

Quick Brussels Sprout Slaw

Quick Brussels Sprout Slaw

There’s nothing I love more than a good brussels sprout recipe. Seriously though, brussels sprouts are so versatile; you can use them in salads and pastas, you can oats them, shred them, boil them. The possibilities are endless! 

Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread

Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread

After months upon months of stress an, seemingly, never ending work, I am finally free. Last Monday I went for my final university interview and am so relived! Being a senior in high school is hard enough, but when you add in extracurricular activities, work […]

Buckwheat Banana Pancakes

Buckwheat Banana Pancakes

These last few weeks have been a complete and total whirlwind! With two portfolios due, a mass of school assignments, extracurricular activities and a vacation thrown right in the middle, I’ve had almost no time to myself. Fortunately, it’s starting to wind down (thank God!).  (more…)

Creamy Avocado Caesar Dressing

Creamy Avocado Caesar Dressing

This is the same dressing that I used for my Kale Caesar Salad recipe. I though  I would create a separate post for those who aren’t interested in making the salad. There are tons
