  • 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 ...
  • Homemade Citrus Body Scrub

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Our skin is an absorptive barrier; it’s like a sponge that soaks up anything you put on it, and it also happens to be our largest organ that leads to our bloodstream. So don’t you agree that it is time to skip the artificial scents, toxic soaps, creams and lotions? You may think they’re helping you age more gracefully, but the damage they’re doing on the inside is just not ...
  • A Visit to Kelly’s Bake Shoppe

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Pete and I have traveled many distances to find good places to eat – he knows that I love nothing more than checking out local restaurants and bakeries when we’re on road trips. The catch? They’ve got to be gluten-free and veg friendly. Last month we went to Florida for a little getaway. On our way to the airport we hit up Kelly’s Bake Shoppe and Lettuce Love Café, both ...
  • Banana Oat Muffins

    I have always been a huge muffin lover. When I was in Teacher’s College I used to buy a coffee and a muffin (almost as big as my face) at the campus café. It was total heaven on earth. There was another café near my practice teaching school (on the east side of Vancouver) and they sold muffin tops, and the best coffee. I’m not kidding, the best muffin tops in the world.  Who doesn't love a muffin top, as long as it's on a muffin and not a waist! These Banana Oat Muffins are pretty ...
  • Chocolate Dipped Power Balls

      Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and this year I really wanted to create something that both my kiddies and my husband would love. We’re pretty big fans of chocolate around here. Granted, the kids like theirs a little lighter than Pete and I (thank goodness Enjoy Life makes chocolate they like). Pete and I are good with the really dark stuff. We buy a raw ...
  • Vanilla Apple Cider Waffles

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. When I was a little girl I loved Eggo Waffles. Can you blame me? My favorite part about eating them was making sure every little square was covered in syrup. Perhaps that’s where my love of all things sweet was born. When we switched to a gluten-free diet, we generally avoided store-bought waffles as they’re pretty void of nutrition, and you know how I like my foods to be full ...
  • 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 ...
  • Single Serving Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

     Thanks for the visit!  Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter so you can get your copy of my new e-book 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Why oh why would someone want a single serving cupcake recipe? I can think of a few reasons: 1.  When you get that sudden urge for chocolate. 2. When you get that sudden urge for something sweet. 3.  When you totally forgot that your son has a birthday party in two hours and you need to send a cupcake! 4. Single mug ...
  • Homemade Gluten-Free Tortilla Chips

    I am a huge fan of guacamole.  I would happily eat it every day (with a spoon or a cracker, but especially on a corn chip from our local Mexican restaurant). Sadly though, corn and I don’t get along very well.  Which I am okay with most of the time (except when we go to that local Mexican restaurant, then I give in). At home, it's much easier to avoid corn.  We don't eat many packaged foods, so we don't get it there.  If I do buy corn, I make sure it's organic and preferably ...
  • Beanitos – Better Than Chips!

    There's a new favorite chip in our house and I just have to share them with you! Beanitos are corn-free chips made from, you guessed it, beans!  We love to eat ours with melted daiya cheese, dipped in guacamole, or with some homemade hummus.  Even the kids love them packed in their lunch with a small container of salsa.  There are four varieties to choose from - Black Bean, Pinto Bean, Chipotle BBQ, and Cheddar Cheese.  Our fave is the Black Bean of course! What do I love about ...
