Grilling season is upon us! For those of us in Ottawa it seemed like we'd be stuck in the dead of winter forever. But we've finally made it to the other side I'll be eating everything bbq-ed for the foreseeable future. This grilled pineapple salsa is the perfect addition to all your summer meals. It's bright, fresh, and the perfect balance of sweet and tangy.
Paleo, vegan options, gluten-free, grain-free
Happy Canada day! These strawberry bars will make the perfect patriotic addition to your long weekend plans but whether you're Canadian or not you'll love these tasty treats! Plus they are paleo, with a vegan option as well!
Paleo, vegan, keto, dairy-free
Is there a better dip than spinach and artichoke? Not in my mind! I love a good spinach and artichoke dip with veggies but after going dairy-free a few years back (about 5 years now), I figured that I'd have to give that up too. But this is just as good as the real deal, maybe even better!
Spring is finally here and it has me craving all the fresh, citrus flavours. That even includes sweet treats, which is a departure from my usual chocolate treats but lemon sweets are my hubby's favourite. So I was inspired to create a healthier version of the classic lemon poppy seeds loaf and it definitely does not disappoint!
Peanut-free, Dairy-free, Vegan/Vegetarian options
Summer is here! After that long Canadian winter, I am so happy to finally have some warm weather and sunshine. I'm ready for patios, picnics and all the summer treats. Who's with me?! These rice paper rolls are oh so fresh, and make for a perfect summer appetizer.
Keto, paleo, HFLC, superfood options
Chocolate + sea salt = match made in heaven! Fat bombs are gaining popularity and it's for good reason. One, they are delicious! Two, they provide fat that your body can use as fuel. Three, they will fill you up and keep you energized longer than a carbohydrate based snack.
Paleo, Vegan, Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Raw
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.
Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Vegan, Paleo, Nut-free option
As you may know, I'm a chocoholic. Always have been. Always will be. These Chocolate Zucchini Muffins really hit the spot. These work well as a regular size muffin but I prefer to make mini muffins so that I can just have a little treat (or maybe I have 2...maybe 3, there's no judgement here!).
Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Vegan
Just look at that colour! While admittedly I'm more of a guacamole girl, this hummus really hits the spot and is loaded with nutrition. Plus, anytime my food is a bright pink (and not from nasty food colouring) is a win in my books! This will make a wonderful addition to your long weekend party plans and will have everyone raving. Why not kick off the summer with this colourful and tasty dip!
