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 [...]

Fit Bit Friday 249: The Triple Tabata Bike Workout {Smoothie Week Edition}

Hey friends! Today is the Smoothie Week finale, and as is always the case on Fridays, let's finish the week with a focus on fitness. Smoothies are such an easy solution for giving our bodies the nutrients they need to recover from the stress of workouts, so the recipe I've got for you today was [...]

Stress Release Smoothie + 7 superfood pantry staples

Welcome to day 2 of Smoothie Week! In case you missed Monday's post, here's a quick catch up: Yesterday was National Smoothie Day and rather than just spending one day celebrating my favourite blended bevvy, you're in for an entire week (well, 3 posts) of smoothie recipes, pro tips, and giveaways. Today I want to [...]

Smoothie SOS: How to fix a smoothie gone wrong

You know when you open up Instagram and discover that it's National <insert random thing here> Day? Usually these events sneak up on me and before you know it, it'll be 7pm and I'll find out I've missed out on almost an entire day of celebrating wonderful creations like peanut butter (January 24th), pajamas (April 16th) [...]

Spiralized Sesame Noodle Salad

Grab your spiralizer and brace yourself for oooooooooooodles of noodles! But first..... a story. About my hair. My hair has always been pretty straight, but it's also suuuuper thick and this has been the case for my entire life. When I was little, I was that girl with the blunt bangs that started at the very [...]

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 [...]

Shrimp and Quinoa Paella

Ever since I moved out of my university dorm and had a place to call my own, one of my favourite things to do is host friends for dinner. I think the origins of this interest comes from watching one of my aunts, who has been the definition of hostess with the mostest for as long [...]

Hydrating Cucumber, Melon and Avocado Salad

Recently I was having a conversation with a friend about travelling on airplanes. She'd just come back from a trip, had landed just a few hours earlier, and was in desperate need of a nap and a shower (her words, not my judgment.) We started talking about our tricks for reducing that I've-just-been-sitting-on-a-plane-for-hours-and-feel-like-a-hot-mess feeling that I [...]
