Sesame Summer Salad

These are not your regular grocery store radishes. One thing I love most about my weekly run to the market is the variety and vibrancy of all the colourful produce. You find vegetable varietals you just aren’t able to get at the grocery store, due to the emphasis on quantity […]

Cherry Lime Cheesecake Bars

I love a good treat. Usually I gravitate towards chocolate but with all the fresh fruits in season it’s time to switch up my dessert game. One of the most difficult things I find with sweets is that they are rarely ever guilt-free. I actually strongly dislike that term – […]

Lemon & Herb Chickpeas

This dish is simplicity. 1 bowl, 30 minutes, less than 10 ingredients & boom you have a fresh, simple meal. I like to challenge myself to use only a few ingredients when I’m cooking due to the digestive benefits. When it comes to digestive health – simpler is better. The […]

Super Seed Crackers

Home-made crackers!! Ever tried them?? It’s a perfect hearty snack idea when you need something healthy and FAST. The difference between these crunchy guys and the stuff from the store is that these are just the basics, the essentials. No unnecessary additives or extras – just some wholesome, fiber, omega, […]

Hearty Spelt Pancakes

This is the ULTIMATE pancake recipe. I realized the other day that my kitchen repertoire was missing a good go-to pancake recipe. I think I forgot about this classic breakfast staple because traditionally they are loaded full of sugar and refined flour and not much else. So I teamed up with VEGA […]

Grapefruit Mint Greens w/ Maple Balsamic

  Truthfully I don’t eat alot of dandelion greens straight up like this – I will usually blend them or sautee them in an attempt to mask the bitterness, BUT those days are gone because I’ve created the perfect dressing to balance the taste of the greens. Slightly sweet & […]

5 Minute Fully Loaded Greens Picnic Sandwich

This. Lunch. Tho. Carbs ✓ Greens ✓ All the pesto ✓✓✓✓✓ Sandwiches are the ultimate picnic / beach food – they are so easy to transport, completely customizable – perfect picnic fare as far as I’m concerned. Less time in the kitchen and more time exploring & soaking up the summertime […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Smoothie

The beginning of spring is marked not only by profoundly beautiful cherry blossoms, but by rhubarb season as well. It’s known by gardeners and farmers alike to be one of the earliest indications that spring has officially arrived. Growing up, I generally enjoyed this veggie sweetened – in pie or crubble […]

Cherry Maca Smoothie

Spring is here – the cherry blossoms are out, covering the streets with delicate, bright petals and softening the air with their delicious floral freshness. This marks my first spring season in Vancouver and I am completely enamoured with all the blooms and lushness surrounding me.  It’s time to shake off the […]

Cranberry Almond Bars

One of my favorite things about these bars is people are always SO impressed when they try them. It is such a simple snack – taking only 15 minutes and a handful of ingredients – but there is something about homemade granola bars that undoubtedly gets people excited. Perfectly sweet […]
