Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

​”If at first you don’t succeed. Dust yourself off and try again. You can dust it off and try again.” Now, I am not a baker, but after a total of 4 attempts at this recipe I think I’ve finally nailed it! I really wanted to create a recipe that was gluten-free and free of refined sugars, to make it a healthier option for everyone, which is why I probably took me so many tries to nail.If you have never heard of or used buckwheat, well today is your lucky day!

The Best Dairy Milk Alternatives

Homemade Vanilla Almond Milk

With the increase of dairy allergies and intolerances, the need for milk alternatives has become increasingly common. Fortunately, there are now so many alternatives available on the market from almond milk to hemp milk, oat milk, soy milk, rice milk, and coconut milk. With that being said, like most pre-made foods, most store-bought milk alternatives have many additives and preservatives that make them less than ideal choices.Fortunately, making almond milk (or any nut milk) at home is so simpl […]

peaches & cream smoothie

Peaches & Cream Smoothie

Peaches are my favourite summer fruit. Fresh, plump, juicy and sweet, they are perfect summer ingredient for a sweet or savoury recipe. I love to buy them when they are ripe and in season, slice them up and freeze them for a later use. This recipe works equally well with fresh or frozen fruit.

Strawberry Chia Seed Jam

Strawberry Chia Seed Jam

Nothing says summer breakfast like a little slice of toast  with jam and coffee, and nothing says summer like the fresh strawberries.  For all of my jam lovers, I’ve got something really delicious and simple to help you make a healthier swap.

Morning Glory Muffins

Red’s Morning Glory Muffins

Muffins are delicious. There is no two ways around it. But one of the reasons that they are so delicious is that they are effectively cake – not so healthy. The traditional muffin recipe is loaded with white flour and lost of sugar, making it pretty poor breakfast or snack option. The Morning Glory Muffin is my absolute favourite muffin, it’s pretty much loaded with everything but the kitchen sink and makes a real satisfying snack. Legend has it, the Original Morning Glory Muffin &nbsp […]

Chia Spice Smoothie

Chai Spice & Everything Nice Smoothie

Chai is one of my favourite spice mixtures; spicy, rich and warming, it makes a delicious tea, latte or addition to any flavourful dessert. Unfortunately, store bought lattes and smoothies are often made with chai syrup, loaded with added sweeteners and sugars making it a unhealthy option. Fortunately, with the mixture of a few simple spices, you can create your own anti-inflammatory chai blend at home, and this creamy chai smoothie really satisfies a sweet tooth! Chai Spi […]

trail mix

Mix ‘n Match Trail Mix

When travelling or simply on the go, trail mix is always my snacking solution. It’s a healthy option that is portable and seems to satisfy everyone’s salty and sweet cravings. There are a ton trail mixes on the market, and although some may be great, many are loaded with too many sweets, salted nuts and even added candy in some cases. A great trail mix should include a tasty combo of two important things – nuts and seeds. Loaded with healthy fats, particularly monounsaturated and essential […]
