WARM WILD RICE "STUFFING" /
POSTED DECEMBER 22

Ever been invited to a Christmas get together where there is a beautiful spread of festive food - of which you can barely eat any of it? Or have you been asked to bring a dish to share but have no idea what delicious dish to bring that everyone will enjoy? This warm wild rice is the perfect side-dish to bring to any holiday occasion - all vegan, gluten free, super delicious. It’s filled with all the goods - walnuts, cranberries, apples, herbs, hemp hearts - and even better, the festive flavours remind me of a retake on Christmas stuffing - so it’s sure to be a winner!

PBJ MUFFINS / POSTED NOV 19

When I get cravings for sweets, it's almost all the time for some sort of delicious baked good. Which is why these muffins are a staple in my freezer - and they make the perfect portable breakfast too because technically, they're kind of like oatmeal in muffin form!

COCONUT COFFEE CREAMER / POSTED OCT 23

Too many times have I tried to cut dairy out of my diet, only to go crawling back because, well, coffee just doesn’t taste as good. For me, the dairy-free coffee creamers out there just don’t cut it for a few reasons. They’re filled with sugar, they’re watery and tasteless, or they taste horribly synthetic. Anyone else with me?? So, I’ve come up with my own coconut creamer which is incredibly delicious, creamy, easy and cheap! It’s also filled with really good fats which I love because it makes my morning coffee a little more substantial and filling.

SPICED APPLE ENERGY BALLS / POSTED OCT 1

I’ve found some people who are exploring new ingredients and superfoods can find the whole thing quite intimidating - What is it? How do I use it? How much do I use? Why is it good for me? Will it make my food taste bad? Where do I buy it? Let me tell you why hemp hearts should be your new best friend and how easy it is to incorporate them into these delish spiced apple energy balls!

DELICIOUS DRIZZLE TRUFFLES / POSTED JUNE 23

If you haven’t got a jar of Drizzle Honey in your pantry, you must be living under a rock. Or you might be like me, and have a giant pail of it because the thought of ever running out is terrifying. Best of all, it’s a raw product! It hasn’t been heated or micro-filtered and contains an impressive amount of healthy enzymes, vitamins and minerals.

CHOCOLATE GOJI RICE PUFF SQUARES / POSTED MAY 7

The inspiration for these Chocolate Goji Rice Puff Squares definitely comes from a childhood classic - Rice Crispy Treats. The birth of this recipe also came at a time when I discovered cacao paste. Of course, I’ve been on the cacao train for years now, but usually stuck to cacao powder in most of my baking and cooking. However, now that I’ve discovered cacao paste there’s no turning back.

BULLETPROOF ELIXIRS FOR MORNING COFFEE / POSTED APRIL 2

You are probably already familiar with Bulletproof Coffee, as it continues to pop up on menus at funky cafes and health food stores around town. Essentially, bulletproof is a “pepped up” coffee with the addition of brain octane oil (or XCT/MCT oil) and unsalted grass-fed butter (or ghee) in your morning cup of joe.

CREAMY CINNAMON COCONUT OATS / POSTED FEBRUARY 17

Don’t get me wrong, in the warmer months there’s nothing I like more than sucking down a green smoothie for breakfast. During summer, I find that I don’t wake up with a huge appetite, but I really do enjoy the taste and convenience of throwing a bunch of fresh fruit and veg in a blender before I walk out the door.

THE LOWDOWN ON MACA / POSTED FEBRUARY 16

These days there are a lot of ingredients out there that fall under the category of ‘superfood’, which makes it easy to question whether these foods are actually as super as their label makes them out to be. I totally get it! I get a lot of people asking me what my favourite superfood ingredient to include in my recipes is, and my answer is always the same: Maca.
