January 8, 2020
elderberry-yogurt-bowl

There’s nothing better than a nutritious-and-delicious brekkie that can be thrown together in flash! Not only does this elderberry bowl look pretty, but it tastes great and is packed with antioxidants, healthy fats, protein, and probiotics too! It’s also suitable for vegan, gluten-free, paleo, and keto diets. For today’s recipe, I used Flora Elderberry Crystals. These crystals are extremely versatile and easy to use. I love adding them to overnight oats, smoothies, chia pudding, popsicles, bliss balls, gummies, and yogurt bowls…

Red Velvet Truffles

December 19, 2019

Most red velvet purchased today gets its colour from loads of unhealthy food colouring. Traditionally, beetroot was used to create the lovely reddish-chocolate hue! For these creamy-and-dreamy Red Velvet Truffles, I used Salus Red Beet Crystals. These crystals are a staple in my pantry and add amazing nutrients and antioxidants with only a mild sweet & earthy flavour. Don’t let the avocado in here scare you off! Avocado and cacao are a match made in heaven. Even if you think…

With the holidays in full swing, I love protecting my digestion by keeping tonics like this nearby. Apple cider vinegar is a great stomach soother. Combined with the healing properties of turmeric and cinnamon, this is a delicious and holiday-inspired digestive tonic.

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…

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…

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.
