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_0385 It's time for a savoury recipe. One of my favourite "go-to" raw meals is veggie nori rolls. They're easy to make and really satisfying. I like to make a batch of pate and keep it on hand in the fridge for a few days in order to whip up a roll whenever I want. Add any veggies of your choic...

IMG_0198 What's more refreshing than a cold scoop of ice cream on a hot summers day? With fresh mint waiting to be used the other day I thought a mint based ice cream would be nice along with a hit of matcha (green tea powder). Naturally I couldn't resist adding some chocolate, so I used the chocolate fudge...

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_0810 When I saw an abundance of ripe mangoes at the store this weekend I knew that I had to buy a few and feature them in a recipe. For no apparent reason, white chocolate came to my mind and inspired today's combination. I love the way it turned out! It's rich, creamy, and full of flavour. I hope you l...

IMG_0212 Today I have a fantastic recipe to share with you. This cheesecake infuses fresh vanilla and white chocolate with a matcha swirl, all on a nutty coconut crust. If that wasn't enough, I garnished it with a crunchy spirulina coconut crunch. Yum, the whole combo is perfect. IMG_0104 In case you aren't familia...

IMG_0098 The other day I had a craving for raspberries. Actually, Ive been eating a lot of berries in general lately. Gotta go with those healthy cravings right?! I figure there must be something in the berries that my body needs. Besides loading up my daily smoothies with berries, I thought it would be fun...

IMG_0038 The other day I was craving something creamy and nourishing for lunch. I had a package of wakame seaweed, a bunch of zucchini, and lots of cashews… so this yummy dish was born. When wakame is soaked, its actually got the texture of soft cooked noodles so sometimes I like to combine it with zucchini...

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...

Image The other day I had just enough extra young coconut pulp on hand from making another recipe that I decided to throw it into a blueberry smoothie. It was SO good! Smooth, creamy, flavourful, and full of nutrition. You could replace the blueberries with any other berry that you have on hand. Strawber...

This cake is really rich and quite intensive to play around with while making it, but the end product is worth it! This uses a smaller spring form to save on cost and time. You really only need a small slice anyways to satisfy, however that didn't stop my roommate from eating half of it for breakfas...

Bananas, Coconuts, and Mulberries, what a combination! While I love a 20+ ingredient super-food smoothie as much as anyone, there can be such beauty in food that is simple yet elegant. I find this to be even more true when it comes to the right combination of flavors that balance out each other. The...

This recipe is so simple and really satisfying! Why I never thought to make it in the past 2 years since I've been doing this raw food thing is really quite astonishing considering how much I enjoy chocolate and apples! The recipe below will make between 3-6 covered apples depending on the size. Be ...

This weekend we did a demo at our local Whole Foods on Speedway (as local as you can get when the nearest Whole Foods is 1 1/2 hours away-lol). As always, it's so great to meet our fans and introduce those who are new to Superfoods to our favorite items. I love to see people light up when they try o...
