Happy 150th Birthday Canada!
In honour of our wonderful nation’s birthday I whipped up this seemingly traditional birthday cake. But traditional it is not! I ditched the flour and refined sugar to make this grain-free, paleo birthday cake. Paired with a lemon frosting and topped with raspberries this makes for a great summer time cake. Plus, it makes for a festive and patriotic dessert. Bonus, I made the entire thing in my blender!

Lemon and ginger are always super tasty together, but you add just a hint of sweetness with the maple syrup and now you've got a real winner! This recipe is fresh, light and makes for a perfect summer weeknight dinner. I find people are a little intimidated by cooking fish but it's so simple! Let me explain...

Who doesn't love a good smoothie?! There is so much opportunity to jam pack your smoothies with heathy ingredients that will supercharge your day. BUT there is also a lot of opportunity for that smoothie to turn into a sugar-packed milkshake. Even when loaded with fruit, the glycemic load of your smoothie can skyrocket in no time. The trick? Load it up with healthy fats, protein and fibre.
