Blueberry Bliss Bars

Blueberry Bliss Bars

Blueberry Bliss Bars I love this versatile recipe which I originally adapted from my dear friend Sarah B’s Raw Cashew Dreamcake at mynewroots.org. The nut and date base and silky cashew filling is ultra satisfying – like the best cheesecake ever – without all the dairy, wheat and refined sugar. Being nutrient dense and an … Continue reading

Loco Mojito Smoothie

Loco Mojito Smoothie

Hola! It’s me again. I have another recipe for you. I’ve been neglecting this blogging thing for a while but suddenly have a renewed sense of excitement to create and share. Let’s see where this goes? Perhaps it’s because my recent vacation was ultra soul soothing. I don’t know if it was playing in the waves for … Continue reading

Omega Colada Smoothie

Omega Colada Smoothie

Do you like piña coladas? This time of year there’s nothing like a vacation to help you hit the reset button. Time away to decompress has got to be my favourite form of self care! Months of stress washed away with a few dips in the ocean, and maybe a few fruity cocktails.. If you can’t … Continue reading

Hello, Sunshine!

Hello, Sunshine!

Summer is officially here! It’s time to (responsibly) soak up the sun and have as much fun as possible in the great outdoors.

Chai this!

Fall is in the air and thank goodness. Summertime is blissful, don’t get me wrong, but it can get overwhelming after a while. Too many plans and not enough sunsets to fit in all that awesomeness! When the temperature drops and the leaves begin to change colour, I breathe a sigh of relief. It’s time … Continue reading

Hooray for Healthy Eggnog!

Hooray for Healthy Eggnog!

Mmmm eggnog… So good, but so bad for the arteries and waistline since it’s packed with loads of unhealthy fat, cholesterol and sugar. At 380 calories per serving – even if you skip mixing it with rum – my all-time favourite holiday beverage is a little too naughty even though it tastes nice. But finally, my … Continue reading

Smart Summer Sip: Raspberry-Mint-Matcha Iced Tea

Smart Summer Sip: Raspberry-Mint-Matcha Iced Tea

I served this beverage at The Naturopathic Kitchen‘s Cancer Prevention cooking class in July and it was a big hit. It’s a great alternative to the sugar-laden alcoholic coolers that temp us on hot summer afternoons. The next time you’re chilling on the patio, swap your Pomtini for this über-nourishing, liver-loving bevy! Ingredients: 1 cup organically grown raspberries 1/4 … Continue reading
