Cinnamon Nut Dough Energy Balls

The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem right? Well, here it is: I am a sugar addict.  My cravings are seemingly innocent, a handful of chocolate covered bananas, a vegan ice cream bar,  or even a couple squares of an organic dark chocolate bar. Nothing is … Continue reading

Sugar Snap Peas and Mint Quinoa Fried ‘Rice’

Last night I watched the Netflix film ‘Okja’ one of the most meaningful and heart wrenching movies I have seen in a long time.  The movie is about a South Korean girl who forms a lifelong friendship with a genetically modified super pig that is  bred for consumption by a … Continue reading

GF Plant-Based Chocolate Chip Cookies

I never go a day without indulging in something sweet.  Life is too short to not to.  I’m not indulging in anything too unhealthy, but rather I find (or make) what I consider to be “healthy-ish” dessert options.  Today I present to you a more nutritious version of your beloved … Continue reading

Coconut Curry Pasta with Broccoli Rabe

I’m not a vegetarian, at least not now, however, since starting a Health Coach Certificate course at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition I’ve been eager to incorporate more vegetables into my every day diet. The notion that food is medicine has strongly resonated with me and I want to feed … Continue reading

White Turnips and Chives

Lately, I’ve been visiting the Union Square Greenmarket a lot. I honestly get such a happy high exploring all of the summer crops.

Raw Raspberry Goji Macaroons

It’s currently Passover, an eight day holiday that commemorates the emancipation of Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. During this time Jews should avoid “chametz”, which is food containing wheat, barley, rye, oats, and spelt that has leavened. Growing up this was tough to do. Thankfully our neighbourhood bagel shop … Continue reading

Spring Salad with Crispy Kale + Miso Vinaigrette

I moved from Toronto to NYC this past Saturday. My husband got a new job here that he is very excited about. I left behind my pride and joy- my dog Lilly, family, friends, and my stocked kitchen! I’m basically starting from scratch here. Next trip to Toronto I am bringing back my spices, … Continue reading

‘Cheeze’ Seed Crackers

I am addicted to hummus. Everyday around noon my body itches for it. It’s delicious, satisfying, and good for you. I probably eat more than I should in one sitting, but so be it. A great dip demands a great best friend, a cracker. My go to crackers are these vegan  Cheeze Seed … Continue reading

Broccoli Soup with Kaffir Lime Leaf and Lemongrass

Broccoli is one of a few vegetables I don’t eat very often. I love broccoli,  but for some reason I always choose another vegetable to prepare. Maybe it’s the little kid in me rebelling against the most child-dreaded vegetable. In an effort to introduce more of the fibrous green into my diet, … Continue reading
