Vegan Banana Bread


  I’m squeaking in before our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend to share this gem of a banana bread recipe with you all. I figured it would make the perfect addition to your weekend breakfast table! We’ve been making this banana bread for weeks and weeks (you may have seen this recipe added to the app last […]


New Mama Glo Bars (lactation-friendly, nut-free)


“I’ve officially polished off my ‘postpartum’ Glo Bar stash.” This is what I wrote on Snapchat early in September with a photo of me gobbling up my last lonely bar from the freezer. I had overestimated my self-control at 9 months pregnant just a tad, thinking that I could stock the freezer a month early […]


Chocolate Raspberry Dreams Breakfast Parfait


Way back in the day, I used to be all about creating breakfast parfaits. Do any of my long-time readers remember the onslaught of breakfast parfait recipes I posted around 2009/2010? Boy, was I on a roll with those parfaits. (Side note: how the heck have I been blogging so long?) Since becoming a parent, […]


One Bowl Jumbo Chocolate Chunk Cookies (vegan + gf)


Having my mom here for the last several days was such a treat. I’ve felt a bit like a basket case lately as we’re dealing with some behavioural issues (the munchkin, not the mom!), and having her here made the world of difference. As I’ve written about in my birth story, the presence of other […]


Avocado Strawberry Caprese


I absolutely love the work I do each day; given the choice, I wouldn’t pick any other field, which feels pretty awesome after following an unexpected, winding path to get here. (When I started the blog way back in 2008, I had just graduated with a Master’s degree in Social-Personality Psychology and was working as […]


5-Minute Soy-Free Vegan Mayonnaise (using aquafaba!)


It’s always heartbreaking as a parent to witness your child with any kind of illness. We’ve been so lucky that this was Adriana’s first stomach flu, but it’s still so hard to watch her go through it. Thankfully, she didn’t get it quite as bad as we did. Eric and I dropped like flies: me […]


Iced Vanilla Bean Matcha Latte…with a twist!

20160118 - App Smoothies 02452 1

I’ve had a lot of requests for my go-to iced matcha latte recipe since I first posted pictures of it on Snapchat last month. I uploaded it to the app a few weeks ago, and today I’m sharing it on the blog! I love that matcha gives me loads of energy without any jitters whatsoever. […]


All Day Glow Green Smoothie


Lately I’ve been trying to find ways to eat more veggies—which I realize may sound a bit funny coming from someone who eats plant-based—but it’s all too easy to get into ruts, especially when things are busy. It’s just so convenient to grab something from a box sometimes! Pregnancy also makes my food obsessions and […]


Fail-Proof Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes with Salted Buttercream

20160118 - App Smoothies 02600 1

Good morning!  I hope your week is going well so far. It has flown by on my end. I’m back with a recipe today, and will be posting my 20 Weeks pregnancy update later today and Friday FAQs tomorrow. As you may know, I’ve been busy revamping reader-favourite blog recipes and shooting new photography for […]


Salted Chocolate Avocado Pudding Bowls


With an almost bursting bladder and plenty of nervous anticipation, yesterday we headed off to our anatomy scan ultrasound appointment. I always find that I get anxious for pregnancy ultrasounds in general, but this one especially. I felt a knot in my stomach all morning long. It’s a fairly long ultrasound since they check all […]
