Vegan Toast Toppers 6 Ways

By | 2017-02-07T10:13:16+00:00 February 6th, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Snacks|

As much as I love bread and toast, I don't eat it often anymore unless it's made with sprouted whole grains or real sourdough (fermented 48 hours or longer), and now I'm going to explain to you why. Grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes are naturally shielded with antinutrients - such as phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors - to protect [...]

Warm Raspberry Buckwheat Smoothie (V,GF)

By | 2017-01-31T08:22:32+00:00 January 31st, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Drinks/Smoothies, Snacks|

Buckwheat smoothies are one my favorite foods to have for breakfast and when I realized I didn't have a recipe for them on the blog yet, I knew that had to change ASAP! Despite the name, buckwheat is not related to wheat, nor is it a cereal grain. But rather a fruit seed related to the [...]

Cranberry Coconut Bars (V/GF)

By | 2017-01-08T10:54:54+00:00 January 7th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

These cranberry coconut bars were born during the holidays as I opened up the fridge and saw a big jar of cranberry sauce sitting in there with no plans ;) The idea of mixing coconut and cranberries came from these to-die-for cranberry cheesecake bars from the lovely Erin Ireland, which I have yet to make! These [...]

Caraway Buckwheat Bread (V/GF)

By | 2017-01-08T12:50:09+00:00 December 23rd, 2016|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Main, Snacks|

I love buckwheat bread thanks to its deep nutty flavor. Unfortunately though, I haven't been able to find a good brand that has a clean list of ingredients without ten lines of additives, preservatives, and different names for sugar! So when I came across this simple recipe by the Healthy Chef, I knew I had to make [...]

No-Bake Fudge Brownies (V/GF)

By | 2017-01-08T18:26:59+00:00 December 23rd, 2016|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

How can I best describe these brownies?? Well, fudgy, dense, rich and chocolatey are the first words that come to mind. I made these last weekend after a night out with friends. I came home late at night, craving something smooth and chocolatey that could be made in less than 15 minutes. After all, I wanted to crash [...]

If you've been following my Instagram page for a while, you probably know how obsessed I am with green smoothies. That being said, I have to say I'm a big proponent of eating according to seasons. So during fall and winter, I try to reduce my smoothie intake and include more warming and hearty dishes like oatmeal [...]

Almond Pulp “Bounty” Chocolate Bars (V/GF)

By | 2017-05-17T09:55:25+00:00 December 23rd, 2016|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

After making another batch of almond milk last week I was trying to come up with a new and exciting way to use up the leftover pulp. I dread putting food to waste, so I often use the pulp in cookies, blondies, macaroons, or crackers, or freeze it for future use. This time I thought why not mix [...]
