DIY Fruit and Nut ‘Birdseed’ Bars

The name of the game this week: healthy, portable, cutlery-free, security scan-safe snacking that tastes better than anything you'll find in an airport. One of the recent recipe requests I got was from a reader named Marie. She asked for a few sweet but healthy snacks she could pack for an upcoming trip, and her [...]

Raspberry Almond Coconut Chia Pudding

Happy Valentine's Day! In honour of today's Hallmark holiday, and carrying on this week's theme of self love and self care, I figured a little sweet treat was in order. Not just any sweet treat though - a versatile one that's make-aheadable, portable, and healthy enough to eat for breakfast, as a snack, or as [...]

Blackberry Banana Chia Pudding Parfaits

Every once in a while, I look back at my oldest blog recipes, specifically for ones that need a little "help" - in other words, the recipes whose photos were taken with my iPhone or point-and-shoot camera back in the very early blogging days. While some of those photos are totally cringe-worthy (and therefore purposely [...]

No-Bake Almond Chocolate Chunk Granola Bars

Question: Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? My answer: Not yet. But as of this Friday, it'll be done and dusted, with just the wrapping left to do. Hooray! I don't know about you guys, but I don't really view Christmas shopping as the stressful activity that a lot of movies and marketing make [...]

Cinnamon Ginger Pear Smoothie

Lightly spiced, lower in sugar and packed with greens, this vegan-friendly Cinnamon Ginger Pear Smoothie is a perfect fit for fall or winter mornings. Since pears are a lighter-tasting fruit, I recommend using milder greens in this recipe. (You will probably find that curly kale and chard will make it taste a little too green!) [...]

Fall Harvest Smoothie Bowl

It may be cooling down outside, but that's no reason to put the brakes on your green smoothie habit. Even though I'm 100% a warm weather-loving gal, the thing I really DO appreciate about fall is all of the amazing fresh seasonal produce. Anyone else with me? Pumpkin, pears, apples, carrots, and more squash varieties [...]

Low Sugar Key Lime Pie Green Smoothie

It seems like no matter what diet book, celebrity nutritionist or wellness plan you look at, everyone's got a go-to smoothie recipe that they swear by. If you've been hanging around here for any length of time, you'll know I'm a big fan and when asked about my favourite, I'm not sure I could pick [...]

Pineapple Coconut Mojito Green Smoothie

I know it's not exaaaactly beach season anymore, but I'm really not ready to let go of summer. With Hawaii on my mind, I've been prepping my tastebuds (and keeping my Vitamix very busy!) this week with tropical-inspired blends like this Pineapple Coconut Mojito Smoothie. What's so great about it? Plenty! Let's start with the [...]

Gluten-Free Apple Pie Oatmeal Snack Bars

When I was little, my parents raised my sister and I with a lot of daily routines. Ever since we physically could, we made our beds in the morning, prepared our school lunches each night, and shared the responsibility of setting the table and clearing it after dinner every night. It's certainly no mystery why [...]

Low Sugar Pink Grapefruit Green Smoothie

As much as I love how pretty and pink they look, I can't say I've ever been a huge fan of grapefruit on its own. The nutrition geek in me really wants to because they've got a long list of health benefits, including being low in sugar, high in immunity-boosting vitamin C and antioxidants, and [...]

Summer Stone Fruit Smoothie Bowl

One of the tips we've all heard when it comes to keeping our grocery spending under control is never to shop hungry or without a plan. I have to say that 9 times out of 10, I practice that. But sometimes I find myself needing to make a quick stop in at the grocery store [...]

Raspberry Cream Pie Smoothie

When my sister and I were growing up, one of our favourite things to do was visit my grandpa's house and pick raspberries in the backyard. We'd each be sent out with an empty ice cream bucket, instructed to 'pick dessert' for that evening. Following the one-for-the-bucket-one-for-the-mouth rule (because I've always been big on quality [...]
