Holiday season, meet the virtuous night

Holiday season, meet the virtuous night

Man, this season can be tiring, can’t it?! I recently found myself aching and tired after four late nights. In a row. Tis the season for exhaustion and being hard on our bodies. But there really is so much to love about this season – it’s the time of year for quality time with friends […]

Ode to Broccoli + Delicious Broccoli Soup Recipe

Ode to Broccoli + Delicious Broccoli Soup Recipe

It’s officially soup time! I’ve had soup on the brain lately, as 1) I just attended a slow cooker event with yummy samples (for “Crocktober” if memory serves me) with the lovely and talented Tomato Snob Jamie Verk and 2) I’ve started my second season working in the kitchen for Feel Good Guru, making delicious vegan […]

SUMMERTASTIC SQUASH + RECIPE

Summer squash is another love affair of mine. At this time of year, farmers’ markets are full of all colours, shapes and sizes of crooknecks, pattypans and zucchinis also known as summer squash. Did you also know that these guys are related to the melon and the cucumber? And if you’re confused as to why […]

Summer love affair: tomatoes (plus three healthy delicious ways to eat them!)

Tomatoes are plentiful at farmers’ markets these days. The season (July to September) is a-happening! Tomatoes, as we know, aren’t veggies – they’re fruits. And did you know that tomatoes are related to berries? Another fun tip: In France, the tomato is known as “pomme d’amour”, the love apple. Tomatoes weren’t always a “pomme d’amour” […]

Oooh baby, I like it raw

Ah, summer. It’s the perfect time to enjoy raw foods. As the temperature warms, we have greater access to beautiful, fresh produce. And this warm temperature allows our bodies to accept the cooling nature of the raw foods more easily (translation: raw foods cool our bodies down!). When it’s hot outside, I like fruits and […]

Beautiful, beautifying borscht

This soup has been a staple for me this summer. It’s light, it’s full of antioxidants, it’s raw, and just what I need in the heat, it’s cold. This borscht was inspired by Jamie Oliver’s goulash recipe, which includes caraway seeds. Let me tell you, caraway seeds are delicious, and give the soup a traditional […]

Garden love: Tarragon is herbalicious

Earlier this week, my stepmother gave me a huge bag of fresh tarragon, oregano and mint from her garden. What to do with all of this herbalicious booty? Well, for starters, I made a delicious tarragon vinaigrette. And then I made a yummy salad. Anyhoo, for those of you who are relatively unfamiliar with tarragon, […]

Breakfast of Champions: avocado on toast

Avocado spread thick onto toast with a squeeze of lemon, pinch of salt and red chill flakes. Gluten-free bread if you like. No recipe necessary. The avocado is full of good fats that will keep your belly full for a lng time. It’s probably my favourite breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s the any-meal of champions!

Farmers’ market love… sea asparagus

Samphire, or, as I know it: sea asparagus is rockin’ at farmers’ markets in Toronto right now. So what is it? It was once known as poor man’s asparagus, but sea asparagus isn’t related to the asparagus that we know.  However, they do kind of look alike. Sea asparagus is like a mini, knotted version […]
