  • Vlog: Homemade Dairy-Free Sour Cream

      Homemade Dairy-Free Sour Cream is one of my favourite recipes from the blog.  I make it once a week and it is one of our favourite condiments. We use it on everything from potatoes to pizza.  You have to try it.  People always love it and are surprised when I tell them what is in it and what is not in it. I thought I would make a video to show you just how easy it is to make a dairy-free sour cream that is both delicious and nutritious.  I've included a recipe below 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 ...
  • 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 ...
