  • Black Bean and Pumpkin Soup

      Our beloved and colorful Canadian Fall seems to be coming to an end.  My early morning runs are darker and colder.  The kids are off to school in their winter coats and toques (that’s Canadian for hats - hehe).  And the trees are bare. That can only mean one thing (my kids will tell you it means Santa is coming), soup season has arrived! I find soup so easy to make – it’s almost impossible to mess it up, and it’s a fabulous way to get an assortment of nutrients ...

  • Dairy-Free Almond Pesto

    Kale is one of my favorite greens.  It is so loaded with nutritional benefits, I could start an entire blog just focusing on the greatness that is kale.  She Let Them Eat Kale. Another thing I love about kale is the fact that it is going to grow in my Canadian garden until it snows, or even longer.  Once you plant kale it is so easy to grow.  Aside from watering it, I basically leave my kale alone until it’s ready for harvesting. Combine kale with one of my favorite nuts, and ...
  • Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Egg-Free Chocolate Cake

    August is birthday month around here (and it doesn’t seem to slow down too much until the end of October). Now that both of my parents and my sister are gluten-free and dairy-free (and feeling fabulous of course), I’ve been busy baking birthday cakes and cupcakes for my entire family. One of my go-to gluten-free flours is teff flour. It’s an amazing gluten-free grain jam-packed with nutritional goodness. And it pairs perfectly with chocolate, so naturally I grabbed for it when I ...
  • Summer Black Bean Bowl

    After a busy summer day with my kids, I need a dish that’s quick so I can get supper on the table in no time. My kids don't LOVE visible veggies in a dish so I usually blend them in my oh-so-amazing Blendtec, or I pick out the beans and less visible veggies and serve them with some rice or in a wrap (don't tell me I'm the only Momma who does this).  Liv is a little picky when it comes to beans, but Callum has grown to love them (yay Callum). Our summer harvest is incredible ...
  • Rustic Raspberry Galette (Pie Crust Recipe)

    I’m a believer of all things pie. It’s in my genes – both of my Grandmothers were amazing pie makers. My Momma’s a pie maker too. So I’ve never been afraid to bake a pie. Yes, even in the Summer heat. I mean really, these fresh berries are just begging to be baked into a pie (unless they’re topping this pudding). And since I’m a believer of all things pie, I’m also of the belief that Summer just can’t pass without a raspberry pie (my absolute favorite). ...
  • Summer Holidays & Vanilla Cashew Pudding with Raspberries

    It’s so important for me to make sure my kids have a blast this Summer. And as you can see, we’re doing the best we can!  I believe in making the most of Summer (actually, we should make the most of every day). We’re also staying cool eating lots of homemade ice cream (have you seen The Spunky Coconut’s new Dairy-Free Ice Cream Cookbook!?) and homemade popsicles. Who says dairy-free living can’t be delicious? We’ve learned how to satisfy our creamy cravings with ...
  • Easy Peasy Crunchy Chopped Salad

    We can't seem to get enough of asparagus around here!  Where we live, it's our first local crop that bursts outta nowhere and carries us into Summer's beautiful bounty! Pete and I love it steamed and roasted, but this year we tried throwing it raw into our salads. And it's delightful. Asparagus is super high in vitamins and minerals (like vitamin K and vitamin A) so why not try to sneak it in to more meals. We like to eat a lot of salads at our house, and we like to switch up our ...
  • Savory Gluten-Free Crackers

    I think most of you know what a few of my favorite things are: cookies, muffins, smoothies, and pumpkin seed flour! I’m slightly obsessed with it lately, but that’s a good thing. Pumpkin seed flour is a super nutritious way to get some vitamins and minerals from your diet. You must use raw pumpkin seeds though! Roasted pumpkin seeds don’t have the same oil content, or the same nutritional value. This recipe for gluten-free crackers was born for a good cause. My friend Tess from ...
  • Omega 3 White Bean Dip

    I like bean dips because you can sneak all sorts of goodies into your food processor and end up with a protein-boost. It’s fabulous. Plus, my kids love to dip! When I’m feeling a little lazy, it’s so easy to grab a can of beans and whip up a nutritious bean dip. It’s also really easy to use some leftover cooked beans to make a dip. I added some hemp hearts to this bean dip recipe so I could up the amount of heart-healthy omega 3's.  They help reduce cholesterol and lower your ...
