Weekend Glow Kale Salad

IMG_7645

Confession: I used to hate eating raw kale. In fact, raw kale was the bane of my existence! The only way I could bring myself to eat raw kale was if I put it in a Green Monster, and even then it was always quite bitter. Or I would bake kale chips and cook them […]

Eric finished installing the railing posts and he started the fascia boards along the edge. It gives a lovely polished effect! Meanwhile, I tended to the garden beds while the worms […]

I went 27 years of my life never making Gazpacho and in the past 2 weeks I’ve made it 3 times.  I blame hot yoga and my crazy water cravings. ;) “Gazpacho is a cold Spanish tomato-based raw vegetable soup, originating in the southern region of Andalusia. Gazpacho is widely consumed throughout Spain, neighboring Portugal […]

This week, the first sign of flowers and leaves put me into full Spring mode. My meals have been fresher than ever and I’m feeling on fire energy wise. It’s about time!

Carrot Apple Ginger Soup

IMG_5301

Yesterday, a few of you expressed interest for the Creamy Sweet Potato Bake recipe, so I thought, why not kick off the Meal Planning Week with this casserole dish? The rainy and gloomy weather suited it well too. Sadly, it was a bust! It turned out bland and the flavours were just off. It had […]

I was looking for a dinner that could be prepared ahead of time and was laid back & fuss-free…Mexican food fit the bill.
