Appetizers

  • 75 Healthy Holiday Recipes December 15, 2015 The holiday season can be challenging when you avoid certain foods. If you’re lucky, you can indulge in a few treats that you wouldn’t normally indulge in – if that’s the case go ahead! Just make them count! However if you’re like me, there’s a line you can’t cross. I don’t care how delicious that apple pie ...
  • Baba Ghanoush & Cucumber Sliders September 3, 2015 This recipe came out of troubleshooting the following food-related challenges  opportunities I was posed with last week: We have cucumbers growing like crazy in our garden right now, and I needed to use them up in any way possible. They were large field cucumbers, which worked just fine, but I think smaller english cucumbers (with no seeds!) might ...
  • Bacon, Guac & Tomato Bites (and why you don’t need to be afraid of bacon!) October 28, 2015 In honour of the ridiculous report released by the WHO earlier this week (saying that bacon and red meat are akin to cigarettes regarding cancer risk), I’ve decided to share a go-to appetizer in my house – Bacon, Guac & Tomato Bites! This doesn’t even really require a recipe per se, it’s more basic directions ...
  • Curry Burgers with Cilantro Lime Mayo July 30, 2015 Burgers are a staple in our house! Why? Because they’re quick to make, delicious and inexpensive. The last part is key, because when buying properly raised meat, cost does become a factor. And after beef shanks and organ meats, ground beef is the cheapest cut you can get! So between tacos, burgers, pasta sauce and ...
  • Egg Muffins September 4, 2014 When I sat down to write this post I promised myself I wouldn’t get up on a soapbox. But then I remembered my recipe was based on eggs. Whole eggs. Including the delicious and nutritious yolk. And out my soapbox came! My apologies in advance if you are already on the egg yolk train – ...
  • Ginger Carrot Soup November 19, 2015 This past weekend we harvested all of the carrots from our garden. We were shocked to see how many there were! We only planted 1 row, but ended up with bowls and bowls of carrots. So in order to use them all while they’re fresh and most tasty, I quickly turned them into my favourite ...
  • Guacamole Recipe + Avocado Tutorial August 13, 2015 Avocado’s are the best. They are jam-packed with nutrients, fibre and healthy fat. And they’re freakin delicious too!!! Adding half an avocado to your eggs, salad, or burgers, is the perfect way to not only get in some additional nutrition, but to make sure your meal will be filling for hours. Also, please note that the ...
  • Liver – A True Superfood! February 3, 2016 When we think of superfoods, things like kale, acai, chia and other plants come to mind. However if we actually put a definition to the word superfood, it becomes quite obvious that these are not true superfoods. Here are my requirements for a superfood: It needs to be jam-packed with nutrients (i.e. incredibly nutrient dense). So ...
  • Plantain Chip Nachos October 31, 2014 Anyone else absolutely love nachos? I was a weird kid and actually kind of hated chips. There was one exception though – tortilla chips. Maybe it’s because I have such fond memories of ski vacations with my family…the 4 of us curling up together after a long day of skiing, watching NCAA basketball and sharing a bag ...
  • Sweet Potato Fries March 19, 2015 One of my goals with this blog is to present simple, nourishing food. To show anyone who may stumble across this little piece of the blogosphere that it is easy to make food that tastes amazing, is budget-friendly, and is healing to your body, whether you are the picture of health, or dealing with a ...
  • Sweet Potato Sliders April 2, 2015 Parties and social gatherings are more difficult for those of us who avoid specific foods for health reasons. It becomes significantly easier when you host, or if you are attending a pot luck, because you know that you will at least be able to eat what you make! The key is bringing something that not ...
  • Thai Butternut Squash Soup December 11, 2014 Soup is probably my husband’s favourite thing to eat, ever. If I made soup (or stew for that matter) every day for the rest of our lives, he would be thrilled. Talk about simple pleasures eh? Luckily I love soup too – for many reasons! I get chilled easily, and when I get chilled, there’s no ...
  • Thai Curry Meatballs [gluten free, paleo] July 21, 2014 I can’t remember exactly when I discovered Thai food, but all I know is it was WAY too late in my life! I can’t believe how many years went by without understanding the deliciousness that is Thai Curry. So, to make up for the time lost, I include curry-based meals on a regular basis in my ...
