Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Protein Squares

I'll preface this post by saying that it is very, very long overdue. It's always a surprise to see what recipes end up being most popular on the blog, and to look at the terms people have searched to land here. These typically involve the words 'eat spin run repeat' in varying combinations, or questions about running, [...]

Vegan Banana Ice Cream, 4 Ways

One of my favourite memories from summers of years past was going to visit my cousins at their house in Ontario. At the time, my family lived in my hometown of Edmonton, and making the trip was something I'd look forward to for months. We spent our days doing all the things that make summer holidays [...]

Vegan No-Bake Chocolate Cranberry Almond Granola Bars

Remember a week or so ago when I said I had a major recipe fail? Ideas for how to fix that fail have been swirling through my head ever since. After a week of contemplation I went for a second attempt, and am proud to announce it was a HUGE win! Every once in a [...]

Smoked Salmon and Avocado Summer Rolls

Guess who's mouth wants to eat nothing but salmon this week? This girl's. But first, a story. Back when I started my new (or not so new any more) job in April, I was at the beach with a couple of my co-workers and we were discussing our favourite food treats. Their answers included some [...]

Trending Now: Sweet Potato Toast

I've never considered myself a super trendy type when it comes to fashion, and aside from a brief period of time in my teenage years where Freddie Prinze Jr was plastered all over my bedroom walls, celebrity gossip has never really been something I've followed closely. When it comes to food however, I love learning about [...]

Pineapple Pepper Goji Salsa

Back in 2009 when I was on a co-op work term at an advertising agency in Toronto, I remember becoming totally wrapped up in a Food Network series, The 100 Mile Diet. It followed the lives of a BC family who decided to step up to the challenge of eating only locally grown, sourced and produced [...]

Baked Green Curry Falafels

Get ready friends, because we're about to get all fusion cuisine up in heeeeeere. I've talked a lot in the past about my pre-university life living in the Middle East, and looking back at the foods my family ate, they were primarily of North American, Asian, Arabic and Indian influence. Our Sri Lankan and Indian housemaids [...]

How to make an avocado rose

Oh hello there! Welcome back to reality after the long weekend - and a lovely, sunny and (somewhat) warm Easter weekend here in Vancouver! I hope you had some fun celebrating, whether you got together with family, friends, or just had a laid back couple of days. Since my family is scattered across the globe [...]

Pineapple Shrimp Rolls with Mind-Blowing Peanut Sauce

Yep, that's right. Not just any peanut sauce, but Mind-Blowing Peanut Sauce with purple and bold and capitals because it's so good. Maybe a few !!!!!s too, for good measure. That is what I've got for you today. But first.... Easter is sneaking up on us miiiiighty quick this year. If your childhood was anything like mine, [...]

Cranberry Orange Granola

A couple of weeks ago one of my Instagram followers asked if I could do a behind-the-scenes post that shows my set up for food photography. A few of you have also made this request in the past, so today's post is a first glimpse into it all. But first, I should preface it with [...]

Vegan 7-Layer Taco Dip

Back when you were in university or college, did the psychology department run studies that you could volunteer for? Mine did, and I signed up because they'd pay me to do something as easy as sit in a room for 30 minutes, look at at computer-generated facial expressions and press buttons on a keyboard. That would immediately [...]

Healthy Peppermint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Well hello there! At the time you're reading this, I'm likely in the air, somewhere between London and Bahrain. I've just spent a night with my sister and her dog, Tesla, who is so spoiled that she pretty much deserves human sister status too. How could you ever say no to that face!?! Seriously, she is [...]

Veggie-Suffed Tuna Collard Wraps

This past weekend I spent a solid couple of hours planning, blending, taste testing and photographing fall smoothie recipes for a side-project I'm working on. And yes, this is the same girl who last week ranted how even the mention of a Starbucks PSL was outrageous because it's AUGUST. Pumpkin is one of my favourite fall foods [...]

Maca Maple Dusted Cashews + Coconut Cashew Smoothie

Oooh guys... I MUST tell you about one of my biggest obsessions. Well, actually two of my obsessions but they both fall under the same food category. I've also got not one, but TWO recipes to share. Today's post is brought to you by the number two. And... Nuts! Lately I've been making a really solid effort [...]
