MUSIC FESTIVAL ENERGY ORBS

So this weekend I am off to party with 80,000 other music fans. No big deal. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know that I never go anywhere unprepared, and my healthy tummy, no matter where I am, always comes first. Although I’ve heard that there will be fruit stands and …

MEATLESS MONDAYS WITH MARTHA STEWART – ASPARAGUS RIBBON SALAD

Doesn’t the mere sound of it conjure up delightful notions? Asparagus Ribbons. Say it again. Nice. Nothing says spring quite like asparagus. Those green stalks are a sure sign that fresh food is on the way! But get yourself to the market quickly, because this veggie is only in season for a very short time. Did …

SUPERFOOD HAUTE CHOCOLATE

Is it just me, or do the holidays sometimes feel more stressful than joyful? Tons of running around, last-minute gift making, endless social events, and no time for much else! I catch myself skipping meals and losing sleep just to keep up. Not very relaxing. This year I am making a concerted effort to book time for treating myself, …

THE GREAT JUICE FEAST

I am taking a bit of a break this week…a break from food! I am juice feasting. “Is that like juice fasting?”, you ask. Well, yes, they are essentially the same thing – a liquid diet of fresh pressed fruit and vegetable juices, except that with a juice feast, the idea is to consume a little …

MARINATED MANGO WITH ROSE PETALS

Ahhh, summer. I am so head-over-heels in love with this season, especially when it means being back in my homeland of Ontario. I have been living in the lakes and forests and sunshine of Ontario, buzzing from cottage to cottage, visiting country markets and picking wildflowers all along the way. Simple pleasures. Quiet moments with …

SUPERFOOD NUT BUTTER CUPS

I had pretty peculiar and passionate habits around candy as a kid. You can imagine then, that my favorite holiday of the year was Halloween. I clearly remember coming home at the end of an exhausting night with my pillow case busting at the seams full of sugary bliss, dumping it all out on the …

STRAWBERRY SUNRISE

What better way to start your day than with a glass full of fresh, strawberry beauty? This is what I woke up to this morning and it was so delicious. With strawberries now in season, the time has come to worship their mouth-watering deliciousness with a drink fit to raise to the rising sun! Strawberries compliment just …

HEART BEET RAWVIOLI WITH PESTO OIL

I don’t often get personal here on the blog, at least when it comes to talking about my private life, but something has happened that I simply can’t avoid mentioning. My wonderful, thrill-seeking husband had a bad hang gliding accident and broke not one, but both of his arms. Walking into the hospital a week and a …

GREEN DREAM CHLORELLA CREAM

Okay, Sarah B. has got another superfood obsession on her hands and she needs you to get on the bandwagon so she doesn’t seem so insane (perhaps not talking in third person would also remedy this). What is it this time? It’s chlorella. Yup, I’m mowing down on the pond scum. Have I sunk to a new …

GREEN GIANT CILANTRO PESTO

Needing an infusion of brightness as we head into the darkness of winter? Here’s your fix: Green Giant Cilantro Pesto. I call it giant because the flavour of this luscious sauce is so enormous it will knock your wintery woolen socks off. Promise. And the bonus is that it’s totally versatile: I fold it into …
