Breakfasts

  • Apple Cinnamon Granola December 18, 2014 One of the most frequent questions I get from clients is for more breakfast options. To be honest, I find it fascinating that people can have a bagel and cream cheese every single day for breakfast and not get bored, but bacon and eggs? Nope, bored. Everyone wants cereal!  I’m not going to beat around the ...
  • Banana Coconut Pudding April 23, 2017 I love food and I love to eat. So you would think the whole breastfeeding-eat-all-the-food situation I’m in right now would be heaven. But let me tell you this, getting in enough calories every single day, to maintain my milk supply is really tough! Eating has become a full-time job! Full-fat coconut milk has been a ...
  • Banana Muffins November 14, 2014 Banana muffins are my favourite. When I was little I used to always ask my mom to make “na-na muff-uffs”, which unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) means that’s still what we call banana muffins in my parents house! They may or may not have a home movie of 2.5 year ...
  • Chocolate Smoothie (with hidden spinach!) March 3, 2016 Ah the smoothie. The breakfast that always sits on a pedestal. Even if it’s full of crappy ingredients, the word “smoothie” always brings to mind healthy, fit individuals. Is that legit? Well, in some cases maybe – so let’s sort out all the info. Benefits of Smoothies Fast. Can be made ahead. Easy way to get additional fruit and veggies ...
  • Coconut Milk Parfait August 28, 2014 Removing dairy from my diet was absolutely crucial in gaining my health back. As a child I always had stomach issues and in hindsight, dairy was likely the culprit. Not only was constant consumption (seriously, I was obsessed!) causing chronic low-grade inflammation in my body and setting the stage for recurrent ear infections and strep throat, it ...
  • Coconut Milk Yogurt August 4, 2016 Yogurt is one of the foods I miss the most, since having to avoid dairy. Unfortunately there are no good alternatives out there. And while there are some expensive cultured almond or coconut snacks available, they are filled with stabilizers, gums and other weird ingredients – so I don’t touch them. Not to mention they’re ...
  • 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 – ...
  • Fried Plantains June 4, 2015 Oh plantains – how I love thee! Seriously guys, plantains are the best! Here’s why: They are incredibly versatile and can be used to make everything from biscuits and pancakes, to tortillas and nachos. Green plantains are savoury and a great alternative to potatoes. Ripe plantains (yellow, or yellow with brown spots) are super sweet and great for ...
  • Green Mango Smoothie July 14, 2016 I’m going to be honest with you, I’ve never been a big smoothie fan. When I started down my health journey, I had a smoothie every morning for breakfast for about 2 years, then hit a wall and haven’t enjoyed them in years. However, so many people love them, and they are a great healthy ...
  • Harvest Breakfast Hash February 19, 2015 Have you ever thought about how many different variations of flour + dairy + sugar make up our breakfasts in North America? It’s pretty astounding! Whether it’s a bagel & cream cheese, a bowl of cereal, toast with jam, eggo waffles and “maple syrup” (i.e. corn syrup + maple flavour), a muffin and a double double ...
  • Instant Pot February 11, 2016 I’ve had a lot of people recently ask me how I keep bone broth on hand all of the time. This is a totally fair question because in order to get a really nutrient-rich, gelatinous bone broth it needs to cook for a long time. We’re talking 24 hours on the stove top, or 2-4 ...
  • Plantain Biscuits September 11, 2014 I chose to stop eating bread long before I chose to go gluten-free. Why? Not because I was trying to lose weight (although that happened), or go low-carb, it was because of one simple thing: Bread is a processed food. Yes you read that right! Even your beloved whole-grain, ancient-grain, flax-and-what-have-you bread is a processed food. I don’t ...
  • Plantain Pancakes January 6, 2016 I used to LOVE pancakes. Seriously love them. I mean come on, refined carbs + sugar + maple syrup – what’s not to love? Interestingly, as I’ve changed how I nourish my body, my palate has also changed pretty dramatically (I say this as I type away while snacking on liver pate…geez, who am ...
  • Pumpkin Spice Muffins October 15, 2015 Well it’s about time I posted a pumpkin recipe this fall! I’m a huge fan of the pumpkin-spice obsession that occurs as of October 1. Normally I stick with homemade pumpkin spice lattes using my pumpkin spice creamer, but sometimes I get a little more creative. Case in point, this recipe for pumpkin spice muffins! I opened ...
