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 …

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 …

INTRODUCING SUMMER LIGHTS + THE MOJITO SMOOTHIE

Summer is here! I’ve officially crossed the pond from freezing cold northern Europe to tropical southern Canada! I am pretty happy to feel the sun shining and the heat in full force. Finally. As I was looking at my calendar the other day, I realized that my summer holiday doesn’t really include much “holiday”. So in …

I LIKE IT RAW

Yes, that’s right. I like it raw, alive…uncooked. I’m talking about my food, and more specifically, that little date square. Since it’s a raw food, all the nutrients contained in the dates, oats, maple syrup, and orange, that would have otherwise been lost thought he cooking process, still remain. In fact, this dessert is so …

ORGANIC GARDEN IN YOUR KITCHEN

Since we’re now in the dead of winter and we’re not exactly getting much in the way of local produce anymore, I thought it would be a great time to introduce ya’ll to the wonderful world of sprouts! I’m sure that most of you have eaten sprouts before and seen them in those little plastic …

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 …
