I was thrilled when one of my favourite companies, Driscoll's, asked me to create a strawberry smoothie with their delicious berries, and write a guest post with a recipe video to celebrate their Vitamix Giveaway! When the post and giveaway went out in their newsletter last Monday, they had so many hits it crashed their site! So, make sure you enter for your chance to get your hands on a brand new Vitamix! I had so much fun learning more about Driscoll's to prepare for this…

Clay Detox Smoothie

Today is all about clay. Calcium Montmorillonite clay changed my life, and I want everybody to know about it. This is not a sponsored post. I just want to share it with you. Scott and I have both used clay both internally and externally for years, and have experienced the incredible healing power. Ingesting clay helped Scott eradicate acid reflux and clear his body of toxins when he had cancer. We both ingest edible clay twice a week to cleanse our bodies, and soak in a clay bath bath…

Gluten-Free Vegan Berry Pie

Late last year, I took a phenomenal pie-making class with award-winning pie maker and master teacher Kate McDermott from Art Of The Pie and I simply had to share the experience with you.

Vegan Avocado Pesto Pasta

I had dinner with my dear friends, Kim and Simon while I was in Australia and I'm still laughing remembering our conversation with their three gorgeous girls, Cameron, Ripley and Ziggy. I am so in love with this family that if I hadn't have had such a happy childhood, I would beg for an immediate "redo" as the fourth daughter in this spectacular group, so that Kim and Simon could be my parents, and these three girls could be my partners in crime. Kim always makes something amazing for…

Cultured Almond Milk

Are you including probiotic-rich foods in your diet? Including coconut water kefir, cultured vegetables, and this raw almond milk kefir have helped enormously to rebalance my inner eco-system, and restore my health and vitality. Those of you who have been following me for a while would be familiar with my life-long battle with candida. You can read more about my personal story here. But, just briefly, I had tried every anti-candida diet known to man, and nothing really worked until I…

Chocolate Banana Maca Smoothie

If you want a protein-rich, energizing, nutrient-dense smoothie that tastes like a dessert, this is it! I very rarely create recipes using 3 bananas! But, what the hell. Here we go! This blend is rich and absolutely chock-full of nutrients and plant based protein. You could add more leafy greens if that makes you feel a tad less cheeky. I have used my homemade hemp milk as the base for this smoothie. As I mentioned in that post, hemp seeds are rich in vitamins, minerals, healthy…

Hemp Milk

Commercial hemp milks are dark in color, and have an unpalatable grassy flavor. But, homemade hemp milk is really fresh and delicious, is loaded with high quality digestible protein, and is super quick and easy. This hemp seed milk recipe is really basic, and you can adapt it to your taste preference. The best part is, you don't have to soak the seeds.
