Detox Smoothie Bowl

No it doesn't taste like grass! First off, I am not an "avid smoothie drinker". I don't replace meals with juices or smoothies. I have a huge appetite, so trying to switch out a meal for a smoothie doesn't work best for me. That being said, I do however enjoy a smoothie now and then [...]


Meat-free, Dairy-free Borscht

Happy Monday readers! I am going to start this post off by stating that borscht is not for everyone; it has a unique, earthy flavour from the beets. That being said, if you do not enjoy beets, this recipe may not be for you. I have tried borscht multiple times, and I must say, I [...]

It was so simple! I started by peeling and dicing a butternut squash, washing and preparing brussels sprouts and [...]

A Productive Afternoon in the Kitchen 

Today I took advantage of my sons self-sufficient mood and prepared some things in the kitchen I have been meaning to prepare. My little boy is now six months old and therefore, old enough to start being introduced to various solids. That being said, today I thought I would try making some homemade baby foods. [...]
