How To Bring Clarity To Chaos

How To Bring Clarity To Chaos

When we are faced with a situation, we often allow it to become the determiner of the outcome. We fixate on mapping out every possible outcome, breaking up the situation into bite-sized pieces to determine a way out. The situation takes control over us. There are no clear thoughts, assumptions are made, negativity overwhelms us…

And the winner is… Nicole from Winnipeg! Thanks for entering, everyone. I love nothing more than playing with flours, spending oodles of hours in the kitchen testing new concepts and creating recipes for you. I’m a rare breed.

Milk & Flourless Fudge Cookies (grain-free + vegan)

Everything you love about milk & cookies but with the nutrients your body needs to maintain a strong, healthy heart. I liberally enjoyed a plate of warm cookies dipped in milk last week. I separated bite-sized pieces from each cookie, dipped them in my chocolate milk, and slowly enjoyed each and every last bite. It…

Natural Energy Boost

Natural Energy Boost

There’s a fine line between being a complete energy junky and having a healthy (non-habit forming) relationship with caffeine. Although there are days where #allIwantisaStarbucks, I’d like to think that I fall into the latter category.

Bacon Shepherd’s Pie (gluten-free + paleo)

Shepherd’s pie (also known as cottage pie) layered with sauteed beef, bacon and veggies in a smoked sauce, topped with garlic mashed cauliflower and baked until crisp. I’m not eating many potatoes these days… Not because I don’t love them (because, wow, do I love potatoes) but because when I pop, the fun just don’t…

If Weekends Are Your Kryptonite…

If Weekends Are Your Kryptonite…

It’s Friday. Well, it isn’t Friday now… but let’s just pretend it is. So, it’s Friday. It’s been a long week. I’m tired, I’m hungry. So I make myself a healthy dinner, then find myself mindlessly snacking on whatever my little heart desires, not fully awake to the choices I’m making.

Boston Cream Donuts (gluten-free + paleo)

Gluten-free and paleo donuts cut like sandwiches filled with dairy-free vanilla custard and topped with melted dark chocolate. Traditionally, Boston Cream Donuts are yeast-risen donuts with custard in the middle. They’re fried, they’re glutenous and packed with sugar.

Why I Stopped Being Vegan

Why I Stopped Being Vegan

This topic is highly personal and very raw. I ask that you be gentle with my story and the experiences that others share in the comments of this post. My intention with this post is to highlight the connection between food control (in my case, a plant-based diet) and eating disorders. This is not an…

Nacho Cheese Cauliflower Tots (paleo + gluten-free)

Nacho Cheese Cauliflower Tots (paleo + gluten-free)

Crispy cauliflower tots packed with nacho cheese flavor without the dairy – a healthy alternative to deep-dried potato snacks. One of the most powerful steps I’ve taken to heal my relationship with food was giving myself permission to eat whenever I am hungry. 9am, 3pm or 1am. It doesn’t matter.
