The Yoga of Baking

I’m taking a break from marathon watching House of Cards in order to write this post. Everyone needs to power through the season so we can talk about it without spoilers.

I’ve got theories I want to discuss and I can’t until everyone is caught up. So get to watching, okay?! That way we will have something to talk about other than “the dress“. …

Vegan Salad Rolls

Hey, remember the other day when I made this salad? Well, I had leftover vegetable noodles and peanut sauce so I decided to make some salad rolls. I’m always looking for ways to use up leftovers. That is why humans invented wraps, sandwiches, soups, stir-frys and smoothies. Okay, I’m taking liberties with culinary history here,…

The Yoga of Baking

Sunday again? Already? The weeks have been flying by lately. I’ve been trying to force myself to chill out on the weekends, but it has been nearly impossible. I used to be so good at doing nothing. I don’t know what has come over me. All I want to do is work on my projects:…

Vegetable Noodle Salad with Peanut Dressing

The universe has blessed me with my second cold of 2015! I can hardly smell or taste anything, so that sucks the joy out of eating. If I can’t enjoy eating, I certainly won’t enjoy cooking. As a result, we’ve had a lot of take out this week. For the sake of our bank accounts, we…

The Yoga of Baking

It’s a beautiful, sunny Sunday in Vancouver. If you live on the East Coast, you probably hate me for mentioning it. I’m sorry (not sorry). Don’t worry, I’m having a hard time enjoying it because I’m so congested I’ve gone through 2 rolls of toilet paper blowing my nose. I didn’t even eat any chocolate or…

Coconut Ginger Soda

I’m not a big soda drinker. I usually like the first two or three sips, after that I’m over it. If I’m going to drink a soda, I gravitate towards ginger ale or ginger beer. I have one of those home carbonation systems, so I often drink sparkling water with a dash of homemade bitters….

Cinnamon Toast Popcorn

I’m not really a salty snacker. I am the person who can eat just one chip and let it go. If you combine the saltiness with sweetness, all bets are off. I’ve made popcorn with coconut sugar before, but it was dissapointing. The sugar didn’t coat the popcorn enough so the sweetness was not evenly…

The Yoga of Baking

This week’s Yoga of Baking features a chocolate beet cake. Don’t be scared! Look how pretty it is? I’ve combined beets and chocolate together before in a smoothie. Beets are a divisive food. I happen to like them, but I know some people feel they taste like dirt. This cake does not taste like dirt but it…

SELF Magazine Feature

Toot! Toot! That is the sound of me totting my own horn after being featured on Self magazine’s website. The feature is a round up of smoothie bowls.  Check it out here!    The recipe they featured was actually one of my first posts on this site. I’m happy to hear it still stands up to…

Banana and Chocolate Chip Vegan Pancakes

Oh man, I’m having flashbacks just looking at this picture of my banana and chocolate chip vegan pancakes.These are defintely a weekend breakfast because after you eat them you will probably want to curl up and watch 100 episodes of Law & Order on the couch in a blissed out state of nirvana. I developed…
