What better treat on a hot summer day than an ice cold popsicle!  Here I have 2 different flavours. The first is a fresh and tangy Blackberry Elderberry & Lemon combo.  The second is “PBBJ” — a play on everyone’s favourite PB&J, with an extra “B” twist!

CHOCOLATE "RISOTTO" (grain-free)

If you’re a chocoholic like me — and especially if you love chocolate for brekkie — this is one you really gotta try.

My “risotto” is made with cauliflower.  Don’t let this scare you off — it has an amazing texture and flavour and a couple of my taste-testers actually thought it was rice!  It also happens to be dairy-free, grain-free, and packed with antioxidants, fibre, healthy fats, protein, adaptogens, and even pre and probiotics!

SUPER SEED SLAW

I absolutely love this colourful seed-packed coleslaw.  It’s bright and beautiful with a variety of textures, plus it’s super easy to make and bursting with fresh flavour and health benefits.

I basically used every seed I had in my pantry for this salad, but feel free to use your choice of seeds and/or nuts.  They’re a great source of healthy fats and plant-based protein, and add a wonderful crunch to this family-friendly slaw.

It’s nut-free, grain-free, gluten-free, and paleo-friendly, and makes a perfect nutritious-and-delicious treat for breakfast, snack time, dessert, or school lunch boxes.  It has a texture that’s a cross between a fudgy brownie and good old fashioned snacking cake.

This is the kind of dish I can eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  It’s quick, easy, and well-balanced, not to mention super tasty and satisfying. I love the combination of smoked salmon, mushrooms, greens, and creamy vegan cheese. Sometimes I cut it up and serve it on homemade paleo bagels — cream cheese & lox frittata sandwiches are my jam!
