Low-Carb Bread

Having lived with T1D for nearly two thirds of my life, it took me many years to figure out that food was a major culprit with respect to the highs and lows. You would think that this would be taught by those who are initially responsible for educating you on this disease when you are first diagnosed, and yet I found that there was a link missing in the system that lacked education on nutrition and it’s connection to diabetes.Read More »

Blueberry Muffins

For the last month and a bit my fiancé and I have been on the road almost every weekend travelling around the U.K. This past weekend was no different where we hit the road and headed south to London to visit family. Read More »

Mushroom & Arugula Salad

It’s been just about a month since I packed my bags, jumped on a plane and moved across the pond to the UK. I lived in Canada for 29 years and this is the first time in my life where I will be living away from my family, and in a foreign country. At least the language is the same, but even then I struggle to understand the accent or phrases the locals use that make absolutely no sense to me. Read More »

Superfood N’Oatmeal

After a week of feeling completely off, which female hormones are to blame, I finally feel like myself again. I spent the weekend with the people I love most visiting friends and family, went to spin class everyday and ate foods that made me feel happy and nourished. With school coming to an end in just a few short 5 weeks its time for me to buckle down with my studying and exam prep. Nonetheless, a rest weekend before the next couple of weeks of craziness was necessary and much indulged. Read More »

The Importance of Drinking Water

As a Pisces, which is a water sign (yes, I just went there), I am naturally attracted to water. I feel at ease and happy when I am near water. The mere sight of water can have immense healing benefits for the body.  Think of how we use hot tubs for hydrotherapy or even bubble baths to soothe our mind and body after a long day at work. Water plays an important role in our health on many different levels.Read More »

Sweet Potato Rapini Curry Stew

Fall is a time for soups, stews and hearty warm dishes. Although it is technically Fall, it has been feeling like Summer with a serious heat wave taking over Toronto the past week. But of course, I didn’t let this stop me from making some of my favourite Fall dishes, just like this hot hot heat didn’t stop the over-hyped annual season drop of pumpkin spice EVERYTHING. Note: this recipe is nothing like pumpkin spice, but its got a lot of spicy heat 😉 Read More »

Blueberry Walnut Buckwheat Muffins

Remember when I said “I make the best decisions when I don’t sit and dwell on them too much”? Well I was kidding myself. But we’ll save that story for another time. 

I got home from work the other day with the plan to go for a run, then make a quinoa chick pea salad and bake a new vegan muffin recipe I came up with. Needless to say, I skipped the run and went straight for the kitchen…and the wine. Read More »

Lentil and Quinoa Chilli Collard Wraps 

I originally put together this post thinking I would feature this recipe as a chilli, which it is, but then when I pulled a container of this “chilli” out of the freezer I came up with a different way of incorporating it into my meals. This recipe makes a ton and it is great for freezing to eat at a later date. The trouble with these type of bulk recipes is that they get boring to eat after awhile. Read More »
