Provence Zuchchini “Pasta” with Cherry Tomatoes and Crumbly Goat Cheese


How to make noodles out of zuchinni and a recipe

Growing up in “almost gluten-free” home made pasta a big deal. Tortellini, spaghetti, ravioli, and even good ‘ole macaroni and cheese were special treats. This being the case, I may or may not have frequent cravings for pasta.

I don’t believe in depriving Continue reading »

Vegan Star Pancakes for the Fourth


Vegan Star Pancakes for the Fourth of July

So I’m Canadian, and yet, a few days ago I never found the time to put together a patriotic Canadian recipe. However, I did have time yesterday…but Canada Day had already passed. Oops.

Soooo…I reminded myself that the demographics of my readers are largely American, and decided to make something that celebrated the Fourth of July. I’m nice like that.

Just so it’s on the Continue reading »

What I’ve Been Eating on the Philosophie Cleanse (& recipe)


Guys, I’ve been loving this smoothie challenge so much.

And pairing it with the Philosophie Cleanse was the best thing ever.

If you think that doing a cleanse is too much work, or too hard…you obviously have not tried Sophie’s Philosophie Cleanse. I swear there is some sort of appetite suppressant in these superfoods…I’ve felt full the whole time. Honestly, I probably haven’t been Continue reading »

Green Dream Smoothie


Green Dream Smoothie with Philosophie Superfoods

So far I’m loving the Philosophie Cleanse I’m doing. I’m drinking a ton of smoothies (sometimes a couple a day), and feeling great!

I asked Sophie if I could share one (or two!) of her amazing recipes and graciously said I could. I swear everything that Sophie makes is magically delicious. Add lots of Continue reading »

How to Make Pickled Hard-boiled Eggs


How to make pickled eggs with title

Ever since I was small, I’ve had a taste for pickles.

I guess I like vinegar. Pickled onions, dill pickles, salt and vinegar chips…they are one of those flavours that I could be slightly addicted to. Also, while I’m on Continue reading »

Satisfying Granola


I’m not usually excited about Mondays…but last week I was thinking about Colourful Palate and my heart was filled with happy. Honestly, there are perks to recovering from my accident. I have more time. Also, I’m getting to the point where I can do a lot more, which is so encouraging. Therefore and forthwith, I’m going to Continue reading »

Raw Chia Superfood Cereal


Chia Seed Superfood Granola 01

I’ve been looking for a low calorie, low sugar granola. Turns out those are hard to find.

You know what they say, if you want something done right you need to do it yourself.

Well, ok…maybe that’s not entirely true. I did find one brand that I loved, but it was a bit pricey for me to buy regularly. I decided to make it myself. Turns out it was ridiculously easy.

No baking. No crazy ingredients.

Just stirring all that superfood goodness.

Chia Superfood Granola Ingredients

Chia Superfood Granola

  1. 1/2 cup organic buckwheat grouts
  2. 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  3. 1/4 cup chia seeds
  4. 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  5. 1/4 cup hemp hearts

Nutritional Info (per 2 tbsp):  Calories: 70, Fat: 3.5g, Carbs: 8g, Fibre: 2.5g, Protein: 3g

Is it ridiculous to just say that the instructions are…like…just mix.

Chia Seed Superfood Granola Mix

Well, that was hard.

Chia Seed Superfood Granola 02

Just kidding.

So to eat this divine bunch of love…you take 2 tbsp. of cereal and mix it with about 1/2 cup of almond milk  and let it sit a couple minutes.

Sounds meager, but the chia seeds expand and make it into a delicious, wholesome breakfast. And you can always have second helpings!

Chia seed fan, yay or nay?
