Chia Seed Breakfast Bowl

chiaseedporridge-2058

My skin is not a happy camper lately. I don’t know what’s up, but I know it’s ticked off. Angry. Inflamed. What’s the problem? That, my friends, is anyone’s guess. When a girl has puffy, itchy eyes and rashes on her face, it’s time to slow down and pay attention. If you’ve ever been the […]

My Favourite Homemade Almond Milk + Step By Step Photos

homemade almond milk -0986

I first tried making homemade almond milk a couple years ago, after many of you told me so many amazing things about it. It’s so creamy! It’s better than store bought! It’s a cinch to make! Homemade almond milk is the best! And you know what? My first couple tries didn’t exactly knock it out […]

Cookie Dough Nut Butter & Double Cookie Dough Balls

cookie dough-8645

Doesn’t this look like a big bowl full of cookie dough? Well, it’s not…exactly. It’s nut butter that tastes very similar to cookie dough. I made this cashew macadamia nut butter for my sister Kerrie and my cookie-dough lovin’ niece and nephew. After clenching the jar for a few awkward seconds, my sister was finally […]

Lightened Up Magical Coconut Bars

Lightened Up Magical Coconut Bars-8721

Magical Coconut Bars were always one of my favourite dessert squares growing up, next to Nanaimo bars. In my younger mind, the sweeter the dessert, the better. The words “too sweet” just weren’t in my vocabulary back then.   Fortunately, for my body (and cavity-prone teeth) I outgrew this mindset, embracing lighter, slightly earthier versions of […]

Homemade Mocha Nutella (Vegan, Refined-Sugar Free)

homemade nutella vegan rawtella-8250

When I have great ambitions to re-create a favourite food product at home, it usually takes the right moment of inspiration to push me along. Or, it simply takes remembering to snap the photos before the husband and I eat the entire batch (such was the case with my vegan cookie recreation from Zephyr Café…doh). […]

Back On Track Green Monster (Banana-Free)

green monster-8139

Aside from my current career in the food business, many of you may not know that I also moonlight as a Barber. The job is not to be taken lightly as it requires a fine attention to detail and precision, something I have no place in assuming much skill. However, I’ve had some practice in […]

My Go-To Kale Salad

kale salad-7942

Lately, I’ve had a few requests to blog about some of my favourite quick and easy lunches. This made me laugh at first because many of my lunches involve standing over a stove sampling the recipes I’m testing that day and then inhaling the cold food that’s left on the plate after a long photo […]

Spiced Red Lentil, Tomato, and Kale Soup

red lentil tomato soup-7710

This is the kind of soup with broth that tastes just as good, if not better, than the actual add-ins. Is it normal to want to guzzle the broth? Well, it is now, my friends. It’s actually a miracle I have any taste buds left because I’ve burned my tongue so many times since dedicating […]

Homemade Crispy Twix Bars

twix recipe vegan-7480

muhahauha I don’t know why, but that just felt appropriate to open with being 6 days from Halloween and all. Evil cackles are the perfect compliment to many situations, don’t you think? Such as: – When you’re bored at work and want to make coworkers think you’re up to something (aren’t you always??) See Dwight […]
