IMG_0110 I love the abundance of fresh, local apples this time of year. They're so versatile and its fun to come up with tasty ways to use them. Today's recipe is really simple as a healthy raw snack. Lucuma fruit powder adds a caramel flavour and natural sweetness to the apple dip. It's great with apple sl...

IMG_0547 I'm loving all the festive Fall recipes floating around the internet, magazines, and cooking shows these days. Pumpkin is an especially great food that can be incorporated into any meal of the day. Today I've featured it in this breakfast porridge that keeps in the fridge for 4 days making it an ea...

IMG_0119 Today's recipe is full of highly nutritious ingredients and makes an excellent snack anytime you need a hit of energy. The squares are great on their own but they're taken to a new level when covered in a soft fudgey chocolate coating. Mmm! Since the chocolate softens quickly, they need to be kept ...

IMG_0605 Happy Monday! It's a real scorcher here and has been so for weeks - sun, sun, and more sun with high temperatures. You know what this means? Lots of refreshing drinks, light food, and frosty/frozen/chilled desserts! I haven't made a fruit crumble in ages and when I came across fresh Okanagan aprico...

IMG_0417 The summer months conjure up images of the beach, lounging in the sun, picking berries - and of course eating refreshing , cooling foods like fruit, smoothies, ice cream, popsicles, and salads. Ice cream cake fits perfectly into that category too, and so I made one the other day featuring the wild ...

IMG_0152 Summer is the perfect time for light, creamy desserts. Of course ice creams, sorbets, milkshakes, and popsicles fit into that category but I also really love a refreshing parfait that bursts with flavour. Fresh young coconuts were sold at a festival I went to recently and I was inspired to turn the...

Happy Monday! I hope you've had a great weekend. Its been a rainy but enjoyable one here on the West Coast for me. I've got an easy new recipe to kick off the week. These balls make a great portable snack and are easily whipped together in a food processor. I call them "caramel" balls beca...

IMG_0100 I realize its not pear season but recently I had a craving for pears - go figure. After letting them ripen in the window for several days, I turned them into this tasty parfait recipe. I tossed diced pears with a creamy caramel pudding and layered it with banana soft serve and a chewy monukka nut c...

IMG_0035 Today's recipe doesn't get much healthier. It boasts heaps of healthy fats, lots of fiber from the chia seed, and is sweetened with mineral rich coconut sugar. It's soft, creamy, and light on the sweet side. I think this is a great breakfast recipe but I also like it as an afternoon snack. IMG_0030Vanilla ...

IMG_0006 I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend! Did you make any special treats? I made raw chocolates which you can find the recipe for HERE, and yesterday I made these banana chocolate squares for a dinner party with friends. I created a dense, chewy banana bar with a creamy banana chocolate frosting....

IMG_0052 Today I have a recipe for a tasty breakfast treat that only contains a small amount of natural sweetness from blueberries and coconut, making it a perfect low sugar meal. I also like it as an afternoon snack. Top it with whatever you like. Crunchy coconut chips and blueberries are nice to bring out...

IMG_0529 I used to love granola for breakfast when I was a child. It was a special treat that my mom only bought occasionally and only let me have a small bowl of it - maybe because she knew how unhealthy it is. Regular granola is filled with sugar and unhealthy oils. I don't know about you but that's not e...

Image These days power bars have become really popular. You can buy them at the grocery store, health food store, airports, and even corner stores. But the reality is that most bars are candy bars disguised in wrappers made to look like they're healthy. Naught naughty! My recipe for power bars are really...

Mint chocolate fudge as a health food? Oh yes! This fudge is ridiculously decadent AND ridiculously good for you. Why? Because it features our new green hemp butter. Our new butter is stone-ground from our green hemp seed meal which is higher in fiber and chlorophyll than traditional hemp seeds an...

I absolutely love this dessert. So many raw desserts try to mimic their non-raw butter and sugar based counterparts (raw brownies, raw cakes, etc). This one is a true celebration of it's exquisite Superfood ingredients and not trying to be anything other than it's glorious self...who knew a dessert ...

Hi. My name is Michelle and I'm a macaholic. Most people who know me are aware of my love for cacao but few know that I'm equally enthusiastic about maca. I have it pretty much everyday. I love the malty, earthy taste, not to mention the way it makes me feel. It calms me down if I'm feeling anxious...

It's that time of year again. That time when I'm reminded of just how much I love pumpkin...pumpkin pie that is. There's just something so magical about the classic combination of pumpkin and spice, I don't know why it's not a year-round staple. I suppose that's what makes it so special though. In a...
