  • 6 Tips for Managing Cold and Flu Season (Naturally)

      Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Our oldest daughter came down with a fever over the holidays. She woke up completely fine, and then while we were on the road to a family Christmas celebration, she went down. Poor girl could barely keep her eyes open. After the 4 hour car trip she crashed in to the nearest bed. Her fever lasted two days, and with it there was a mild cough. Other than the fatigue and the ...
  • Homemade Coconut Milk

    A couple of weeks ago I shared my reasons why dairy-free living is important to me. This week I wanted to give you some tips for going dairy-free. I think any food intolerance or allergy diagnosis can be incredibly overwhelming at first. It helps tremendously to have someone to help you navigate the waters, even just a little. We’ve been living dairy-free for almost 8 years now - I'm basically a pro. My older kids do have dairy from time to time, but this is quite recent. They were ...
  • Toddler-Friendly Green Smoothie

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Smoothies are on a regular rotation at our house so it’s no surprise that our third babe would also be a smoothie lover. Eva’s been drinking smoothies since she was about 8 or 9 months old and she loves them. She asks for them every day, especially if her big sis and bros are slurping up smoothies. “Moothie Mama, moothie.” This toddler-friendly recipe can easily be ...
  • A Healthy Chocolate Protein Smoothie

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. In case you missed my video a couple of weeks ago (and my newsletter last week), we are expecting our third gluten-free cinnamon bun in time for Canadian Thanksgiving! I made it through the first trimester with a few food aversions, some nausea (pfft morning sickness is more like all day sickness for some of us), and a lot of nighttime fatigue. Unfortunately the fatigue has stuck ...
  • Chocolate Peppermint Protein Smoothie

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. I have been focusing extra hard on my studies this month and Christmas holidays are sneaking up on me! I looked at the calendar this week and realized I’d lost a week between now and Christmas. Uh oh! Needless to say, I haven’t been doing much baking - aside from gingerbread cookies since the kiddies love baking, decorating, and eating them! But every student needs to fuel ...
  • Ghoulishly Green Smoothie Recipe – Kid-Friendly

    Halloween is one of the few times I let my kids indulge in candy. I want to teach them about balance and I think Halloween provides us with a great opportunity to do so. On Halloween night the kids will go trick or treating, come home, dump all their candy, and we’ll go through it together to pick out the allergy-friendly candies. They’ll get a couple of candies a day, but we make sure they’re also getting lots of water, all of their vitamins, lots of fresh air, rest, and healthy ...
  • How to Make a Green Smoothie (Video)

    When my friends from Ptbo Canada asked if I wanted to film a video with them, I jumped at the chance. We decided a green smoothie video would be a great way to show you how to jazz up your smoothies (or encourage you to add them to your day). I am a big fan of green smoothies. I think they're a great way to start your day and to add super foods that you might have trouble fitting in otherwise. It's kind of like having a salad for breakfast. We switch up our smoothie ingredients every ...
  • Creamy Kiwi and Avocado Green Smoothie

      We bought a Blendtec (a high-speed blender) two years ago and we haven’t looked back.  It was such a worthwhile purchase for us; it’s paid for itself many times over. We run that baby at least 4 times a day, if not more.  It’s an amazing machine that makes soups, sauces, spreads, and smoothies of course!  What I love about my Blendtec is the nutrition you can pack into it.  In a matter of seconds, it transforms into liquid gold! We make a lot of smoothies and ...
