Raw Spiral Veggie Salad

Spring is here! And for me that means incorporating more fresh raw dishes into my diet. I like to eat a combination of both raw and cooked foods, and vegetable dishes of all different colours.

These would be perfect to make for one of your holiday events.  Gluten-free, and dairy-free, they are sure to please any of your guests and friends. The “cheese” portion was made from a white bean blend, and […]


Breakfast Parfait

Breakfast Parfaits are really easy to make, and you can get creative and change the toppings as the seasons change. It’s now the winter season, and so we don’t have fresh berries, so these berries were simply frozen berries that I thawed ahead of time. Feel free to use any fruit that you like or […]
