Treats

  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Mango Creamsicles [vegan, paleo] August 8, 2014 When the dog days of summer roll in, I really start craving ice cream.  Who am I kidding…I always crave ice cream!!  That’s all fine and dandy, except for the small issue of a severe dairy allergy, which makes enjoying ice cream a little more challenging for me than for most people. Added to that allergy is a fierce aversion ...
  • No Bake Pumpkin Pie October 10, 2014 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 had a bite of that ...
  • Orange Jello June 21, 2016 It was 35 degrees here on the weekend (for my friends south of the border, that’s 95F) and while that’s just gorgeous for most people, being 6 months pregnant made it a little tough to handle! So I spent the weekend enjoying lots of cold food like salads, hard boiled eggs, smoothies and JELLO!!  Why jello? ...
  • Pumpkin Spice Creamer September 26, 2014 Now that it is officially fall, I can finally post a pumpkin recipe! It’s been a busy week in my household, so I’m going to keep this post short. It’s also been an exciting week, because I was quoted in an article for in the Toronto Sun, as well as local Sun Media papers in a dozen ...
  • 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 ...
  • Summer Berry Ice Cream July 23, 2015 Have you had coconut milk ice cream yet? If your answer is anything other than “hell ya”, go out and get some right now! Specifically the brand Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss because it has the cleanest ingredients. It’s like the Hagen Daaz of dairy-free ice cream. Rich, creamy, and lots of great flavours (can you ...
  • Watermelon Jello August 6, 2015 When I was in grade school, we were always allowed to bring in a treat for the whole class on our birthdays. Since my birthday was in June, and it was usually hot out, my mom would always make jello jigglers for me to take! They were always a huge hit because they were delicious, ...
