green smoothies

I’ve been to a few Vitamix demonstration tables at various food events around Vancouver and have seen them make green smoothies/sorbets that have been DELICIOUS, and my new project this month was to try and figure out that tricky mix of how many vegetables I can make a smoothie with while still making a good … Continue reading

apple almond coconut muffins

apple almond coconut muffins

My muffin recipe experimentation continues! I am *really* happy with how this flavour turned out! I grated an apple, then decided that cinnamon, coconut and almond would go together nicely. Since I’m watching my sugar intake, I wanted to make these muffins as sugar-free as I could while still having enough sweetness that the flavour … Continue reading

fibre-licious carrot coconut muffins

I think you may have noticed that I love smoothies and muffins… because all I have been posting lately are smoothie and muffin recipes! This recipe concoction was a successful experiment from my desire to do something with all that juice pulp that is created from juicing. I love juicing, but I don’t like throwing … Continue reading

blueberry to your health smoothie

Something very exciting just happened for me. I got a Vitamix Blender!! For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s a high powered blender that will blend a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g.

Today, I was thinking about the past month, and how busy it’s been, and that I’ve had barely any time to cook, and realized sometimes the best things in life … Continue reading

vegan eats: reconnaissance in Toronto

vegan eats: reconnaissance in Toronto

I had grand intentions of exploring the vegan cuisine scene in Toronto – but a few factors got in my way: work (had to be done), extreme heat (who can stand walking to the other end of town in 44 degrees?), and the proximity of Fresh restaurant to my hotel (YUM). This is the restaurant … Continue reading

how to be vegan and still eat dessert

Contrary to popular belief, I eat ice cream, chocolate, cookies, cake, and most other things you can think of that you eat after dinner and usually need to limit how many you eat. Ice Cream = coconut ice cream, almond milk ice cream. Both of those taste DELICIOUS and can be soy free (read the … Continue reading

Blueberry Banana Nut Muffins

Blueberry Banana Nut Muffins

For the first recipe I post, I decided to “veganize” a standard muffin recipe that I found on the Whole Foods website.  Original recipe is as follows – with the alternative ingredients I used in brackets beside the non-vegan items.  I just pulled out a batch from the oven an hour ago, and my roommates … Continue reading
