  • Happy Weekend!

    Well, let’s see how we do with this post. I’m going to add the first sub-page under “Live” to a sweet local place we like to go,  called The Irv. After a tough day of editing, posting, revising, recoding…I’ve had enough. I’m off to get some fish and chips, and I’m taking the man with […]

  • Whew! It’s All New!

    Let’s try this again…hopefully with the new address link! Be patient with me, I’m growing! Well, friends, if you’ve been following my blog, you’ve been looking for me at I’ve made a move this week that will allow me to provide access to new types of content, but it required a complete migration of […]

  • Oh, the controversy!

    The other day I posted a gorgeous purple cabbage and blueberry smoothie on my Facebook. It was met with much skepticism and derision (yet, might I add, more discussion than any post in recent memory). So today I have another tasty smoothie for you. What you need to know is that it can be a […]

  • Who Needs Toast?

    I like a toast soldier as much as the next guy, but this is a great way to get more flavour and vitamins if you favour an eggy breakfast. I started with a sliced onion, half a bell pepper, diced, and a chopped hot pepper in a nonstick pan. A regular pan will work also; […]

  • Drink Your Veggies!

    There are SO many opportunities to sneak in some extra veg – like this delicious smoothie. It features red cabbage (with some peaches, mangoes, strawberries and blueberries for good measure). I topped up the blender with almond milk, a few sunflower seeds, and some cinnamon, and we were all set.

  • Never Underestimate the Power of Green…

    If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I am a great promoter of buying local. However it’s often darkest before the dawn, and at this time of year, when fresh local produce is just barely trickling into our stores, I have been known to give in to a moment of weakness. I had […]

  • Just Cheesy Enough…

    Sunday morning – when you want decadent flavour with very little effort, these cheesy avocado toasts fit the bill. Start by grating some cheese – in this case, aged cheddar and Caerphilly – but mixing up flavours will give endless tasty results. For two, cut a small avocado in half and mash with a squeeze […]

  • Breakfast Luxury

    …or perhaps, lax-ury? This morning’s omelette is filled with a decadent mixture of asparagus, mushrooms, onion, and baby potato slices. It is tasty enough on its own, so the two thin slices of thyme and pepper gravlax on the side make it extra special. It’s more of a method than a recipe, but here’s what […]

  • A Regal Breakfast

    Who could resist this gorgeous royal purple colour!?! And no, despite the coaster, no wine was involved. What you might not know, is that it packs a nutritional punch. For two, I blended: 2 c (500ml) chopped red cabbage 1 chopped carrot 1/3 c (80ml) raw cashews 1.5c (375ml) frozen strawberries 1t (5ml) pure vanilla […]
