Golden Beet Salad with Shallots, Parsley, and Orange Miso Dressing


The first signs of spring are starting to show this week – buds on tree branches, Canadian geese migrating home, squirrels bouncing about, and birds chirping delightfully among the tree tops. It really is a beautiful thing to witness. One stroll through the park and it’s clear that this renewal we feel during spring is […]


My Go-To Kale Salad

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 […]


Fall Detox Salad + Hurricane Sandy Fundraiser Update

Thank you, thank you, thank you for making the Hurricane Sandy fundraiser such a success! As of Monday morning, we’ve raised an unbelievable $8,075. I’ve heard from so many of you all over the world who’ve donated and it really warms my heart to see so much support pour in. As some of you may […]


How To Spiralize Vegetables (Without A Spiralizer!) + 2 Veggie “Pasta” Dishes

how to spiralize vegetables-4363

I’m sure many of you are familiar with spiralizer machines – famous for turning vegetables like zucchini into spiraled, curly, pasta-like strands. I first had zucchini “pasta” a few years ago at a raw food restaurant and I couldn’t get over how similar it was to regular pasta noodles. A spiralizer machine has always been in […]


Speedy Three-Bean Salad

3 bean salad-4201

One of my favourite things to do is recreate a dish or meal that I’ve enjoyed at a restaurant or purchased in a store.   I’ve recreated the Detox salad and Layered Salad with Orange Ginger Dressing from Whole Foods, the Adzuki Bean & Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad and Pink Flamingo Smoothie from Fresh restaurant, Endurance […]


Speedy Summer Hemp Power Salad


One of the things I love about summer is that I can eat like a Queen without much effort. Mid July, our crisper is now overflowing with farmer’s market vegetables, none of which need much fuss or strategic planning in order for a memorable meal. Life gets a bit simpler (yet busier) in the summer […]


Layered Raw Taco Salad for Two


If you ever find yourself in a salad rut, this raw taco salad is a great way to break out of it. Hearty and flavourful, every bite is a fiesta in your mouth. It’s a bit (ok, a lot) different from the taco salad of my youth, but certainly no less tasty! My inspiration comes […]


Adzuki Bean & Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad with a Twist


Last week, I had a meeting downtown and it was the perfect excuse to grab a bite to eat at Fresh restaurant. Whenever I’m in the city I try to pop in for a meal, even if that means eating an early dinner at 4pm and hitting rush hour traffic on the way home. It’s […]


The Weekend Snapshots : Food, Food, Randomness, and more Food


You know a weekend was fun when you wake up on Monday morning feeling like you need to sleep for 53 hours. (That’s also the sign of a good vacation!) It’s the classic weekend hangover and it often lingers well into Tuesday. My solution is to relive random phone photos, creep other people’s weekend on […]
