Coco Ganache with Salted Coconut Crust

In less then 3 weeks it’s Canadian Thanksgiving! It’s my favourite holiday. As soon as the first day of autumn hits I start planning out the feast that we’ll make for our family and friends on the second Monday in October.

Collard Wraps with Mango Butter

You may have noticed I love wrapping delicious ingredients up all together and enjoying them in one bite.  Wraps are perfect for leftovers the next day or to simply create a meal out of items in your fridge you would like to use up. Wraps are used in many different cuisines to bring together flavours

Brazil Hemp Milk

This recipe is decadent. It tastes like it should be bad for you! Brazil nuts are a great source of selenium which is essential for our immune system, the health of our thyroid and reduction of inflammation. It’s also an essential component for the production of Glutathione which is our bodies master detoxifier

Rose Infused Peach Ice Cream

This is a delicious decadent ice cream without the guilt. It’s full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and low in saturated fat compared to regular ice creams. Peaches naturally contain a large amount of Vitamin C – excellent for your skin and immune system.

Date Paste

Ready to ditch the refined processed sugar?  Here is one of our favourite whole food sweeteners – date paste.  Dates are full of vitamins, minerals and fibre – refined white sugar not so much! B-vitamins are essential for your metabolic and emotional health (among many other functions).

Green Curry Coconut Soup

This paired with the Pad Thai Recipe is delicious! It’s light and frothy and has enough heat to keep you warm in the cool winter months.  This is one of the few winters in the last 7 years that I have not spent working in Sri Lanka

Kiwi Black Bean Guacamole

  Kiwi is such a great food it has lots of zinc which aids the body’s healing process. I buy it organic and eat it with the peel on. The peel is slightly tangy but it compliments the sweet juicy inside. This recipe is awesome on raw crackers or as a spread on collard wraps […]

Sunchoke Hummus and Root Veggie Chips

Also called the Jerusalem Artichoke the sunchoke is one of my favourite winter root veggies.  It is in the sunflower family and has a tangy, sweet, nutty flavour.  They can be eaten raw or roasted.

I choose Forks Over Knives

One of my favourite films of 2011.  If you are undecided on the health benefits of a plant-based diet look no further this movie will change the way your dinner plate looks. For more information: http://www.forksoverknives.com/
