I love to eat what’s in season but come the end of winter and before the berries are out in late spring, the fresh fruit selection gets sparse. So, it’s been a lot of oranges for us this time of year. I eat a version of this drink almost every day with my lunch. The […]
Think you don’t have time to make pancakes during the week, or even at all? Now you do😀. These are so easy and need minimal cleanup. Literally dump ingredients into your blender and turn on. They are also 100% whole grain, and no added sugar and oil. A healthy way to […]
We make traditional chick pea hummus A LOT in our house but I wanted to switch it up. So, I went searching for other hummus recipes and found tons- very overwhelming in fact. I didn’t have the time or energy to try them all out so I took a little from each of them […]
As we ring in the new year I am reminded of only two years ago when a New Years resolution would profoundly change our life for the better.
Prior to that we ate what I thought was a healthy diet. Most of our produce and dairy was organic and our meat and eggs were […]
These muffins were a big hit with my girls so I had to share. Don’t let the greenish hue fool you… these are delicious! They may be a good way to get your kids to warm up to green food. They’ll be begging you for kale in no time. 🙂

My daughter started kindergarten this year at a nut free school. That doesn’t mean just no peanuts- it’s ALL NUTS! Don’t get me wrong; I’m not objecting to a safe environment for kids with nut allergies. I just mean that for a family who eats a plant based diet I was surprised to find out […]

Why not bring something with some nutritional value? There’s nothing worse than the healthiest choice you can find on a food table is potato chips.
Here are a few ideas […]
Who doesn’t love a good lasagna? It’s the ultimate comfort food in our house too. This version is 100% plant based but still has all the flavour of a traditional lasagna. Don’t be intimidated by the “make your own” ricotta cheese layer. Once you do it once, you’ll have it mastered for next time. It’s […]
Whenever we eat pizza I find my kids picking off certain toppings that they think they don’t like. This one doesn’t like tomatoes or mushrooms or whatever they decide that day. What if you could hide all those healthy veggies inside the pizza somehow so they wouldn’t even know they’re eating it? Problem solved, right?
I love this time of year. Harvest time! Giant zucchini’s call my name at the farmer’s market. I can’t resist. I always start out with great intentions as I cart them home. I have plans of shredding them all up in the food processor and freezing it all so I can add it to spaghetti […]
