Zesty Orange & Carrot Smoothie

I’ve been drained out lately. No matter how much sleep I get, I always seem to need more. It could be the lingering winter weather. It could be the lack of sunlight. Or it could be something else entirely. The truth is I have no idea, but it’s been affecting my inspiration and desire to …

Celebrating today? Here’s a green dish to mark the occasion: Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!  Looks like I’ve been craving heat lately because the last three recipes I shared with you are spicy.

It’s the first winter that I get the majority of my vegetables from a CSA, and it forces me to align my cooking with the seasons. I won’t lie to you: It’s been challenging. Every week, I get a new supply of root vegetables – more than I know what to do with. But I’m …

Avocado & Chocolate Mousse

The first time I heard about combining avocados with chocolate was while watching the organic living documentary Go Further several years ago. I watched in awe as chef RenĂ©e Loux made an unctuous vegan chocolate mousse using avocados rather than heavy cream and eggs. While that piqued my curiosity instantly, I only got around to experimenting …

Brown Rice & Arame Seaweed Salad

I turned 33 last week! I remember turning 25 and having a mini life crisis. A lot has happened since then. Growing up, I had a very different vision of where my life would be at this age. But it’s alright. The choices I made over the years have led me where I am today, …

Pecan-Hemp Balls

I love nuts. If I didn’t exercise any self-control, you’d find me eating nuts all day. Pistachios are possibly my favourites. This might come as a surprise to you given that this blog contains no pistachio recipes whatsoever. But it makes perfect sense to me. I eat them all before they have a chance to …
