Sausage & Mushroom Spaghetti (Squash)

When I first started cooking, I would follow a recipe exactly as it was written. As I got more comfortable in the kitchen, I started loosening up a bit. One tablespoon of oil? Approximately a quick circle around the pan. One tsp of cumin? I'd eyeball it in the palm ...

Plantain Chip Nachos

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, ...

Beef Jerky

Anyone who makes an effort to eat whole, real foods most (if not all) of the time, can totally sympathize with me when it comes to finding quick grab-and-go snacks. Sometimes I wish I was still in the dark about nutrition so I could grab a protein bar to throw ...

No Bake Pumpkin Pie

I love pumpkin pie. Like love love love it. It's one of my favourite parts of Thanksgiving - that and the amazing quality time with family of course! Unfortunately inherent to a traditional pumpkin pie recipe is wheat and dairy, so it's non-negotiable for me. It's been years since I've ...

Squash is by far my favourite of the fall foods! As soon as the weather cools down a bit in September I throw the first squash I can get my hands on into the oven and roast it until it starts to caramelize. It is so sweet and delicious, while ...

Plantain Biscuits

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, ...

Homemade Sunflower Seed Butter

Nut and seed butters are a key pantry staple for quick grab and go snacks. While I absolutely love peanut butter, I'm careful with how much I eat because I have a sensitivity to legumes and recently I've noticed that it kind of makes my mouth tingle. That's clearly not ...

Egg Muffins

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 ...

Coconut Milk Parfait - Amanda Naturally

Coconut Milk Parfait

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 ...
