Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

November 13, 2019
pumpkin pie

Pumpkins are one of the most iconic symbols of cooler weather, and of holiday gatherings in North America. Pumpkin pie is one of my favourite desserts and considerably healthy, too, so I will happily make something a bit unexpected with the same flavour and health benefits but none of the gluten. This ice cream has all the flavour and creaminess of pumpkin pie, can be made ahead, requires no baking, and is gluten-free. Using real pumpkin and the best quality…

Tasty & Easy Flax Dip

November 5, 2019
tasty

This is a tasty, healthy, no-stress recipe to serve when people come over. The variety of tastes makes it a hit and will intrigue the palate to keep you coming back for more! It is so low-stress, it is more a loose suggestion than a recipe: Combine ingredients with pleasing flavors in proportions that suit you, top with flax oil, and serve. I recommend scooping it up with chunks of bread. Pick a loaf that is crusty on the outside…

The Dirty Fat Chai

November 1, 2019
chai

Part eccentric statement, part delicious beverage. It’s 2019 and we are over our fear of fat and dirt! A dirty chai latte, says the former barista, is a chai latte with espresso. What’s a dirty fat chai? It’s even better, as it includes organic medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil sourced ethically from coconuts.

Beet ‘N’ Berry Overnight Cauli Proats

October 25, 2019
proats

This is one of my absolute favourite overnight oat combos.  Honestly, I am addicted to the colour, the taste, and how happy and satisfied I feel after eating them. Salus Red Beet Crystals have become a staple in my home (sponsored).  Even if you don’t like beets, these are worth a try. They’re naturally sweet, less “earthy” than regular beets, and rich in vitamins, minerals, and plant-based compounds such as betalains and nitrates.  Among their many benefits, these compounds may…

Healthy Popcorn – 3 Ways

October 23, 2019
popcorn

Popcorn is healthy. Or unhealthy… even dangerous, all depending on how it’s done. The Good Popcorn kernels are always non-GMO, fiber-rich whole grains. If you like eating popcorn at night, I have good news. Corn kernels contain the amino acid tryptophan which can boost serotonin, the “happy” neurotransmitter. Because it can even help us have a good sleep by producing melatonin, the evening is my favourite time to eat foods rich in tryptophan. This amino acid gets into our brain…

The #1 Way to Use Manuka Honey to Soothe a Sore Throat

October 21, 2019
throat

Growing up, my mother would make me a comforting mug of “honey lemon” any time I got sick. This warm homemade brew often included ginger, sometimes echinacea tea, but it always had equal parts honey and lemon juice. It soothed my sore throat and cough wonderfully. Honey has been used in this way forever, and science is catching up to what mom has always known. Various types of honey have been touted as natural cough suppressants and have even been…
