Gluten-free, Dairy-free Fermented Bagel Sandwich

One of my biggest wins this winter has been discovering Alkeme breads. This family-run business not only has a great following-their-bliss story but they also make gluten-free breads and bagels that are the absolute best I've tried anywhere else (and I've tried them ALL). They use a fermentation process that ups the health factor of their breads and bagels. This bagel sandwich is me and my husband's new fave for breaking fast after 16-18 hours. Enjoy this easy and absolutely delicious meal! Ingredients: One "Everything" bagel from Alkeme Foods Hummus or vegan cream cheese Organic spinach leaves Organic micro-green sprouts or alfalfa sprouts Step one: Make the best hummus of your [...]

Gluten-free, Sugar-free Raspberry Bars

I've already confessed my cookie-monster-ness to you. So, we got that out of the way. ūüôā But when I need to jazz it up a bit, I've got to bake something more than cookies. And that's when the inspiration struck for raspberry bars. And, where we are in Canada they have almost no organic frozen fruit (insert sadface, we are so spoiled in the USA). But we did score a huge box of local raspberries and I didn't want them to go bad. So I made raspberry cobbler using this delish recipe and then I had to do something else with them... Raspberry bars were then born! And boy oh boy, [...]

Grain-free, Sugar-free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

My husband LOVES to buy bananas. Like lots of them. He's always convinced that he's going to drink a ton of smoothies that week and/or eat two bananas daily...why he thinks this, I'll never know. I'll literally say in the grocery store as he grabs two huge bunches, "Honey, please. Put the bananas down. Don't do this." To which he retorts, quite confidently, "I'm going to eat all of these. I promise." But what he really means is, "I know you hate to waste food and so do I, so I'm going to let these get super brown so that you have no other choice but to turn them into banana [...]

The best non-alcoholic drinks – for the holidays (& beyond)!

Four and a half years ago I quit drinking. You may imagine that I spent many a night up late getting blacked-out drunk and many a morning hungover from alcohol poisoning (hint: that's what a hangover is, you've been poisoned and your body is responding to the poison). Except, I was your typical social drinker - 2-3 glasses of wine 2-3x a week. I would let myself have four glasses max on a weekend and two during the weekday. I rarely got wasted. I usually got buzzed. And I never threw up from drinking. But, I was regularly and consistently drinking a known and socially acceptable poison...and that's a problem. Especially [...]

Healthy Holiday Recipe: Veggie Mac-n-cheese

This is yet another recipe to add to your healthy Thanksgiving & HolyDays recipe collections! I just posted about this on my Facebook, but I'll confess here again - mac-n-cheese is my all-time fave food. It's notoriously "bad for you" so I devised a clever plan  where I would only have it over the holidays so that my fanaticism for the dish could have some air without being out of control. But then, the coolest thing ever happened - mac-n-cheese got healthier. And healthier. You've no doubt already tried our mac featuring dish (my first post, #ofcourse) - and this spiced up holiday version should make you pretty happy too. This [...]
