Now that it’s finally spring (dare I say!) I’m moving away from soups and hot food and onto cooler salad-y food.  These are awesome!  They’re super quick and easy to assemble, and you can use whatever flavour combination you’d like.  They’re also fun to make–the rice roll wrappers start out stiff as a board, and soften in water in about…

Okay.  This is one of my favourite brunch recipes ever. Ever.  Around here we’re obsessed with all things sweet, smokey, and spicy.  I’m also a little obsessed with waffles….but these waffles…they hold the best combo of flavours. This recipe came together on Sunday after a trip to the gym–time for well-deserved waffles!  We only wished we had more collard greens…

I’m not vegan, but I know lots of people who are. When I started reading a lot of Michael Pollan just before I began studying nutrition, I thought veganism might be on the horizon, but the more I learned, the more eating well for me because about moderation and quality meat/animal products. Being an (almost-1 course to go!) nutritionist, I’m…

This is a hearty loaf that you can take with you on the run.  It’s delicious, satisfying, and guilt-free!  It also packs a superfood punch, with lots of vitamin rich citrus zest, ginger, chia and quinoa.  It’s gluten-free, and even grain-free.  It’s dense, filling, and based off a pound cake recipe from the Vitamix cookbook…but I’ve replaced most of the…

These are super crunchy and delicious!  Just don’t have too many…and don’t have them…
