Sweet Surrender Zucchini Pasta

This summer has my food cravings going through different seasons every other week. Last week, it was fall, I wanted warmth and density because of the colder days and chilly evenings. This week, it's bright and sunny and calls for fresh no-cook meals.Since I do strive to live a raw lifestyle, with tons of fruit and veggies in their most natural form, I love those days when I just want fresh and raw foods. It's also a perk because it means not having to turn on the stove or the oven. I find that I get my ...

Delectable Roasted Roots

With new potatoes starting to pop up at the local farmers markets and the weather not being crazy hot, these awesome roasted vegetables were calling to me. Not very labour intensive, they deliver little bursts of flavour that are great to enjoy on a cooler evening. I will admit that they are more of a fall theme, which in my mind fits for Toronto at the moment with weird cold spells having come our way in the last week. 

"Sorta Kinda Like Mom's" Spaghetti Sauce

Growing up, spaghetti sauce in our house was always vegetarian. Even though my brothers often asked my Mom to add in some meat, she very rarely relented and just stuck to her veggie filled recipe.

She still ...

Banana Ice Cream

I had this for breakfast at least 5 times in the past week and a half. Yes, that's right, breakfast.I laugh so much when people have those bewildered looks on their face when they find out I'm not only vegan, I stick to a whole food, high raw diet. I know they have images of endless salads popping up in their heads and while I love me a good salad, it's definitely not the bulk of my diet.In my book, healthy still means delicious. Actually, when I started being more conscious of my food choices ...

Yellow Thai Curry

Thai food has always been on my list of favorites, but for a few reasons, it isn't in my habitual repertoire of go-to recipes or restaurants. The primary reason being that plenty of restaurants use fish sauce in, well, everything and some places won't or can't make their dishes without it. So finding a good, authentic and fish-sauce-free restaurant can be tricky. Nevertheless it is no excuse not to enjoy the delicious flavors that Thai food has to offer. Turns out that there is a veg-friendly Thai place right around the corner, and it was so amazing ...
