Crispy Chickpea, Sweet Potato and Kale Bowls with Garlic Tahini Sauce

I had almost just as much fun acquiring the ingredients for this week's recipe as I did actually eating it. Let me explain. Recently I was catching up on an episode of The Good Life Project, a show that has been on my list of weekend must-listen podcasts for years now. The guest was the woman who [...]

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 [...]

Baby Heirloom Tomato, Cucumber and Quinoa Salad

Yesterday morning I set out on what should have been a lovely sunrise run along the sea wall. The beach was on my left side, the park was on my right, and a few fellow early morning enthusiasts shared the path with me. About 15 minutes in, I was just getting into my meditative running groove when [...]

Thai Peanut Tofu Buddha Bowl

This one's going down as approximately the 11th recipe on the blog that involves nut butter in the form of a sauce or dressing, and at the risk of being repetitive, I still figured you NEEDED to have this recipe in your life because it's pretty much one of the greatest things that's ever happened to tofu. [...]

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 [...]

Summer Bliss Salad

Lately it seems that a large influx of travel-related promo emails have been landing in my inbox. I don't open many, but skimming the subject lines has been triggering thoughts about epic vacations, exotic beaches and luxurious resorts. Add to this the fact that Wanderlust Whistler happened this weekend, plus the stream of Facebook photos that give me a glimpse into all of the [...]

Ahi Tuna Poke Bowls

Today's recipe isn't one I originally intended to post. Over the weekend I was working on a reader's request for a sweet yet healthy snack, and everything was going perfectly until I took said snack out of the oven. It had been a while since my last big recipe fail, and I guess it was just [...]

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 [...]

Easy DIY Kimchi

Easy DIY what? Yes, I know that's what some of you are thinking, and I'll explain. But first, some background. Over the course of my 20s thus far, I've definitely acquired a lot of new tastes that I couldn't stand in my childhood years. In the past I've talked about how my dad is a [...]

That time I visited a goji berry farm

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 [...]

Strawberry Kiwi Chickpea Salad

I've got a mind-blowingly delicious summer lunch coming right up, but first, an A to a lovely reader's Q. During the series of Smoothie Week posts that I wrote last month, I featured this Post Workout Perfection Smoothie with a great big kiwi flower of sorts on top. Shortly after, I got an email from one [...]

Gluten-Free Coconut Almond Peach Crisp with Vanilla ‘Nice Cream’

Is anyone else counting down the sleeps until the long weekend? I sure am! This Friday is Canada Day for those of us here in Canada, and I know that my US friends are also celebrating the 4th of July on Monday. The July long weekend has always felt to me like the first real [...]
