I’m really excited to share this recipe with you today for the Black Monster Smoothie. This is one of my absolute favourite smoothies! Despite the fact that this is probably my most made smoothie – with some variations here and there – I haven’t shared it until now because, well it can be kind of [...]

I have a new smoothie recipe for you today! If you’ve been following along on my social media in the past couple weeks, you may have heard (and seen) that I recently tried fresh figs for the first time. And loved them! Because I wasn’t sure if I could eat all of those figs before [...]

  One week into Vegan MoFo 2014, and I’m thinking my plan to participate mostly through my Instagram account was a good idea. I’m loving trying to make some presentable food each day (that isn’t always the same) to share! This week actually ended up being full of a couple new things for me. One: [...]

Miso Sesame Sauce, title

First things first folks. Let’s get one thing straight: this is really all about the sauce! Yes, brown rice bowls are amazing, but really, the options are endless and you can throw in whatever veggies you like. Like this one, I prefer to include at least one roasted vegetable, like yams or squash, with at [...]

So, I just realized that I haven’t written a post in almost two whole months! Yikes! Isn’t it crazy how fast the time goes by? I’m already half-way done my holistic nutrition program at CSNN Vancouver and its been amazing so far, but is keeping me very very busy. Hence the lack of blog posting. [...]
