Gluten-free Smoked Salmon Blinis

Afternoon BBQ’s and get-togethers are one of the best things about Summer. But I know how hard it is to find tasty, healthy things you’re proud to feed your guests.

Dairy-free Paleo Cream Cheese

One of my favourite foods is cheese, and while I don’t eat much of it these days, I still crave cream cheese every now and then – slathered on vegetables, in a wrap, as a healthy alternative to béchamel in a vegetable lasagna or on my yummy smoked salmon bilinis. While it’s pretty easy to find […]

Roasted Pumpkin + Rocket Salad

After allowing a bit more sugar into my diet over the holidays, I have been feeling tired and my skin has flared up again. I struggle with mild dermatitis and psoriasis, and literally a day or two after eating sugar I break out with red, inflamed patches on my chest and face. So.. this past […]

Sugar Free Xmas Brownies

These brownies are probably my all-time favourite treat! And they are so much healthier than the original that I don’t feel the slightest bit guilty devouring a big slice! The sweetness comes from the natural sugars in roasted sweet potato and honey – nothing processed – and it’s completely gluten-free as well. Win-win! I’ve tweaked my […]

Healthy Snacks for Dealing with Cravings

Lately I’ve had lots of people asking me about ideas for healthy snacks that will satisfy their mid-afternoon or after-dinner sweet tooth. Cravings happen even to the healthiest of us. It can be our body’s way of telling us what it needs. Or it can be an old habit or emotional crutch that’s subconsciously running the show (more on […]

Carrot, Ginger + Apple Soup

While soups are traditionally associated with Winter, I think they’re the perfect meal to have when you want to give your digestive system a break every now and then. Spring + Summer is BBQ season, and while I try to eat a lot of fish, sometimes I find myself eating more red meat than I’d like. After […]

Choc-Berry Layered Chia Pudding

Chia seeds are a staple in my kitchen, and for good reason. They are packed with so much nutrition that helps sustain energy, boost digestion and detoxify the body. Plus they’re really versatile, and can be eaten soaked (so they become gel-like) in puddings, desserts and smoothies, or as they are to add crunch to salads, sprinkled […]
