Autumn has at least a little pull on all of us. Despite the fact that winter is coming in fast, we relish the slight chill after summer’s heat, the boots, sweaters and scarves, crisp golden leaves, and let’s be honest – the pumpkin spice lattes, chai teas, and all the spicy foods! Combining school and work this year, I found myself drawn back to coffee. However, the damp bitterness made me feel congested, heavy and achy. What could I do to make my morning cuppa a little easier on my system? Enter Autumn Spiced Coffee. Read more

In case you haven’t noticed, I have an obsession for green sauces – pesto, pistou, herb paste, flavour-makers, leafy dressings – call them what you will, I love them! Making pastes and sauces out of your fresh leafy herbs and greens is one of the best ways I can think of to preserve those precious summer greens to enjoy all year. Today I’m taking an economical turn and using carrot tops in this Carrot Top Pistou + Dressing. Read more
Spring is a time of renewal, and Mother Nature has provided everything we need to shed Winter’s layers and open ourselves up to sunshine and increased activity. Perhaps ironically, autoimmune flares often happen during seasonal transitions such as this, so it is helpful to have transitional plants and tools on hand to help us move through these setbacks and heal again.

Spring is finally upon us here on the West Coast, and signs of it are starting to creep up in other parts of the country. Spring flowers are my absolute favourite delight because they are the first pop of colour since Autumn leaves, and the light pink, yellow, purple and white complement the bright glow of fresh greenery oh so well – Mother Nature certainly has her colour coordinating on point!

These cool, rainy, autumn days are getting shorter and shorter. Therefore, they feel more and more like cookie days. Right?
These colourful root veggie cookies developed by my dear friend Hayley of I Eat Real Food practically scream cozy, comforting and nourishing, while also bringing a good dose of sunshine with their bright colours. They are the perfect fall treat, especially for those of us who are healing illnesses and allergies. She has even written about cookie energetics! These bright bites are flourless and sugar-free – sweetened only by those adrenal-assisting, craving-satisfying, nutrient dense root veggies. They are potentially the “healthiest” cookies alive, and are so tasty! Read more
I was never a cauliflower person. Not when I was a kid, and not now as an adult. But I was raised to eat at least some of everything on my plate, so I have eaten my fair share in my life thus far. I remember one very unfortunate soup that my grandmother made (and then my Mom made again at home, much to my chagrin!) which contained three of my least favourite vegetables: cauliflower, corn and mushrooms. It was like eating a bowl of dirty socks, while everyone around me exclaimed on the delicious depth of flavour and nourishing heaviness. I thought I might die, but I ate it until I finally felt comfortable enough (or was it desperate enough?) to tell my mother just how much I hated it! Read more
