Raw-ish Rebel Fig Tart

Figs are a thing of beauty. Complex in taste and texture, nutrient dense, exotic and ridiculously good for you. Oh and they just happen to be in season. More reason to love seasonal eating. So I got my bounty, when visiting Kirk & Alece's backyard. We took to the back alley, and so beholds the black market figs. All it…

the rainbow connection

CHANGE:/ how we look at rainbows   You all know I have a fondness for the little green frog, his banjo, and that song he sings. It came to mind though a lot for me this past weekend. This weekend, rainbows were the flags that were being waved. With pride, with love. To be honest, I think I have taken…

Vegan Pavlova with Lavender, blueberries, coconut and chocolate

This recipe comes via two Vancouver chicks who know what's up when it comes to food and I'm stoked to know them and follow what they do. Chef Marika Richoz of Birdnest Dining created this beautiful pavlova recipe for an equally beautiful evening, at the SajeWellness x Farmacie long table series, hosted by my beautiful friend Erin Ireland. Pretty much…

Strawberry Milkshake cheesecake cake 😉

I made this cake for this first time quite a while back. And well, I loved it so much I made it again. Just in time for mindfulness bookclub nights. I couldn't stay, which seems more often that not these days with all the school work, but regardless I brought the cheese..cake and wine. K, so back by popular demand,…

Vulnerability

CHANGE :// how we see and react to vulnerability, and what we do with the result The V word. Yeah, it is as uncomfortable as the other V word that might come to mind. There is no escaping that, the uncomfortable, that is. So I feel we are, "we" as a society, taking steps to embrace what vulnerability is. What…

blanco nero pizza

This is where seasonal eating becomes fun. You find a few key elements, you see a dream and you mix master your way to chopped super stardom. Um, I mean of your own household that is. Same diff. Anyways, as you all know, I have been obsessing over black garlic lately. One, it is visually fucking stunning. Two, it is…

Did you ever think the day would come where kraut was a topic du jour? Yeah me neither. So unless you're not hip to the word on the street, the street is talking all about the F word.... Ferment. Why?...       Because of the crazy health benefits that can come from properly fermented foods. You can't go into…

what would eckhart eat?

I first read Eckhart Tolle's book, The Power Of Now, close to 10 years ago. I recall how it hugely improved upon barriers in my life that I was facing at that time. They were not profound in nature, but I knew that what I was able to put into play, worked, and was in line with where I wanted…

quiche-ish

Although I tend to not use tofu in a lot of recipes (vegans don't all eat just tofu, in fact I rarely do)... there certainly are places where it is just what the nutritionist/chef ordered. Namely, eggs. Savoury brunches were definitely a thing I always enjoyed, and still do now from time to time. So those classic egg dishes, they…

it’s not easy being green

Change: how you examine your views Ever since I was a little girl, I connected with Kermit the frog. This connection was solidified to me when my dad gave me a book of Kermit quotes titled after his famous song, Its not easy being green. It was not only a moment in time where I felt maybe he understood me,…

Balsamic Portobello Chickpea bowl with Avocado Cream

I like big bowls and I cannot lie. "bowls" as they have universally been named now, are pretty much whatever you want them to be, which makes them a) customizable b)efficient c)delicious d)nourishing e)economical K, so granted some of my bowls are more...manicured then others. More... well balanced lets say. But whatever the case, they do the trick. So please…

nuthin but a g thing

I feel like, and thankfully so perhaps, that we live in a society of "grateful" people. The thing is, do we reaaalllly know what we are talking about when we use that word? I mean not to jump the gun, I'm sure many do, but I can only share with you my opinion. Are we really that grateful after all?…

herbs and how to store that s#*t

I am now someone that likes to talk to their grocer. I love being in the market. Early, I can appreciate the care of how each item has been placed and everything is fresh with morning dew.
