The Perfect Christmas Gift for your Family

Ross Petty

I love Christmas. I am one of those people that loves everything about it. I listen to the radio station that plays Christmas music, I welcome the Christmas aisles at the department store, and I decorate my house until my husband makes me stop. Don’t worry, I wait until after Remembrance Day. That’s long enough, […]

Cauliflower and Kohlrabi Soup

I love a good soup. If you’ve been on this website before, you probably know thanks to all the soup recipes like this Tomato and Lentil Soup, Cream of Cauliflower, Butternut Squash Soup, Kabocha Kale Sesame Soup, and more. I’m a soup lover. So it’s no surprise when I see a bunch of vegetables in […]

The Secret to Perfect Steel-Cut Oatmeal

Did you wake up with good intentions this morning? The good intentions to eat right, and start your day off with the mighty-fine whole grain goodness of steel-cut oats? I don’t blame you! These oats are better than the rest. They are minimally processed so your body takes longer to digest them, keeping you fuller, […]

Whole Wheat Yogurt Coffee Cake

Whenever I have people over to my house, I make banana bread or coffee cake or some sort of sweet treat. I also make loaves of goodness when I go visit friends, when there’s a potluck, or I know someone is stopping by-even for a minute. This infuriates my husband. He walks into the house […]

Every Canada Day our family goes to the cottage.  This year will be our 10th annual Canada Day party with a bunch of our good friends, 18 to be exact.  People are littered throughout the cottage, the yard, the river and the lake. There is a croquet tournament each year (which I have not won […]

My CSA this Week…


I have joined a CSA. What’s a CSA, you ask? If you thought “Cult. For sure it’s a cult.” You would be wrong. It’s a Community Supported Agriculture and it basically means I give money to a local farm to support them and in return, they provide me with a basket of deliciously fresh and […]

Blueberry Muffin Smoothie a.k.a. The Cement Mixer

It was a rainy day in Toronto, when I was craving something sweet and bright for my breakfast. BLUEBERRY MUFFINS! And then I thought about everything I had to do that day…and thought…SMOOTHIE! And that’s when the sun peaked through the clouds and said “Combine them!”. Ok, the sun actually didn’t peak through the clouds, […]

Coconut Honey Roasted Nuts

Coconut Honey Roasted Nuts

Nuts get a bad rap. I know they’re high in fat and calories but sometimes you have to dig a little deeper. What KIND of fat and calories are we looking at here? Because I get not eating EMPTY calories, but nuts? They’ve got some good stuff in there. Here’s the deal. There’s EMPTY calories […]

Food Revolution 2017: Challenge #3


I’ll keep this one simple. Challenge #3 is a Healthy Breakfast Challenge. Kids who eat breakfast tend to eat healthier overall and are more likely to participate in physical activities — two great ways to help maintain a healthy weight and keep their developing brains happy. Skipping breakfast can do all sorts of damage, not […]

What is the best time to start eating more greens? The first answer is a long time ago, but the second best answer is NOW. Greens are SO GOOD FOR YOU. I’ll spare you all the nitty gritty, but greens are full of fibre, iron, antioxidants like vitamin C, chlorophyll, and many many more vitamins […]
