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

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. I can make ice cream in it. I can make homemade nut milk. I can make peanut┬ábutter. I can make soup that is HOT! … Continue reading

vegetable candy a.k.a. roasted broccoli

This is going to be a short and sweet post – literally and about it’s contents. ­čśë Broccoli gets a bad rap, but it’s actually incredibly nutritious and good for us. I’d turn my nose up at broiled broccoli as well – limp veggies┬áaren’t my thing. However – I cannot get enough of roasted broccoli. … Continue reading

If you have someone in your life that loves fast food, then give them this recipe, because it will be much healthier and more satisfying then those frozen pre-packaged variety. I’ve … Continue reading

a traditional [vegan] christmas dinner

a traditional [vegan] christmas dinner

This year for Christmas Eve dinner, we re-thought what “traditional Christmas dinner” meant. ┬áThe memories, for me, are not in the food, but in the company and the feelings. ┬áSure, others will disagree – you like how sleepy you are after eating Turkey, or look forward to that one dish that Grandma makes just at … Continue reading
