grown up not-too-fruity fruit salad.

vegan no-mayo potato salad.

There’s a funny relationship between hunger and deservingness. It comes up all the time in meetings with my nutrition clients: this feeling that “I shouldn’t feel hungry [yet]”, or “I didn’t do enough today to be hungry”, or even “I

vegan ‘chicken’ salad with chickpeas.

We all have foods that take us back to specific moments in our childhood.  I have very specific memories of Jos Louis (a treat I only had at a friend’s house), orange pop (camping!), Viva Puffs (wrapped in waxed paper

cooking class recap: vegan-vegetarian casual entertaining.

We’ve been watching a lot of Master Chef lately. I haven’t quite figured out what I love most about it: the competition, the creativity, the inventiveness, the food inspiration, the ridiculous edits given to each “character” (because, truly, their personas

sweet corn + potato mexican summer salad.

Some of the best meals are the ones that just… happen. Unplanned, no recipe, improvisational fun time style. I’ve discovered that’s been a theme of late with our meals, thanks largely to the week-of surprise of our CSA box as

hosting an organic vegan dinner party (yes, you can!).

Last weekend, we had a couple of my favorite people over for a little vegan hors d’oeuvres party to watch the newly-released GMO OMG documentary. It was great! Really interesting film (check out my thoughts here) and a wonderful way

Summertime: the season of picnics, dips and spreads. Don’t you love it?! :) I think it’s also the season for simple recipes that don’t take too much time and leave us more opportunity to get outside and frolic. In the

fresh + green quinoa tabbouleh [and so much gratitude].

Can we just talk about gratitude for a second? I am awash with it today.  Last night, we held the launch party for the Vive Detox, a new collaborative venture between my business partner Paige and I. It. Was. Wonderful.

sweet basil ponzu dipping sauce.

Adding another dip/ dressing to repertoire this week with a little sweet basil sauce. Inspired by ponzu, a sauce typically made with lime juice, vinegar, soy sauce, and fish flakes, this version is adapted to be vegan, sugar-free and gluten-free.  Super

chickpea toasties.

These little toasties are officially my new favorite way to use chickpeas! They’re featured in the Eat Deliciously, Live Vibrantly eCookbook (but they’ve been popping up so much in our food rotation the last couple of weeks, I thought I’d share

buttery spinach salad with crumbled tempeh + crispy shallots.

Who says salads have to be cold, limp veggies in boring dressing out of a plastic container? Not this lady! I figure: if we’re going to work more veggies into everyday (which, let’s be serious, we could all be trying

buttery tahini dill dressing.

What’s the deal with salad dressing, everybody? For real. Have you looked at the ingredients on a bottle of the stuff recently? Scary. In order for a bottle of Catalina or Ranch or 1000 Island (yuck) to keep an even

This is a deliciously quick throw-together lunch or dinner, and particularly perfect for days following intense weeks of eating (*Thanksgiving). It’s packed with several nutrient-rich ingredients, including: kale (vitamins A, C, K, calcium, and a surprising amount of protein for

summer slaw with creamy tahini dressing.

It has been a balmy 80-something degrees here all day today [high-20s, fine Canadians — don’t worry, I’m still learning, too]. This means it’s finally time to help the body break down some of that stored-up gook from winter!  Green
