  • 8 Tips for Packing Awesome Gluten-Free Lunches

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Packing a lunch for your kids can be one of the biggest challenges of the school year. And it doesn’t get any easier if you have gluten, dairy, or egg allergies to consider. I’ve been packing gluten-free lunches for 3 years and I still find it to be something that requires thought, planning, creativity, and lots of patience. The other tricky part to packing gluten-free ...
  • 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 ...
  • Dairy-Free Raspberry Frozen Yogurt

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. My Grandma used to make the best raspberry pies on the face of this earth. I’m sure that’s what sparked my love of raspberries. Alas, a girl can’t eat pies every day (certainly there’s a universe where pies are healthy), so thankfully there are many other ways to get my raspberry love on. What’s so good about raspberries? Loaded with antioxidant and anticancer ...
  • 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 ...
  • 7 Tips for Enjoying a Kid-Friendly Gluten-Free Christmas

      We’ve been a gluten-free family for 4 years now, but to be honest, it’s hard to remember what life was like before we changed our eating habits. I am so grateful for the road we’ve been travelling - even when it was bumpy and I didn’t know where our next turn would take us. We’re all so much healthier and happier. My family and I don’t miss out on a thing this time of year, or any other time of year, for that matter. Here are some tips I’ve learned over the years ...
  • 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 ...
  • Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf

      Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. As I mentioned in my last post, zucchini is popping up everywhere! I do enjoy raw zucchini, but I'm not a fan of cooked, roasted, or steamed zucchini. I find it gets a mushy consistency and I just don’t like it. So what’s a girl to do with all of this local and organic zucchini? Bake Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf of course! This recipe was born out of my childr...
  • 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 ...
  • Gluten-Free Toronto Love

    Shirley, Ricki and Me - We met in Toronto, Canada a couple of weeks ago!   First let me begin by saying I am so grateful for all of the amazing people who are working hard to make healthy gluten-free living easier for all of us! I get so excited when I see a new gluten-free product on the market, or when I hear about a gluten-free friendly restaurant. I live in a great little community not far from Toronto, Ontario.  Although we have some delicious local restaurants, we love ...
  • 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 ...
