• Crunchy Munchy Veggie Salad

    It has been hot here lately….hot, no breeze, no air conditioning 🙁 So all that I’ve been feeling like is a big bowl of crunchy munchy salad! Something cool, crisp and refreshing is what I’m after, and this salad fits the bill perfectly. Crunchy Munchy Vegetable Salad 1/2 medium-size cucumber (semi-peeled, quartered lengthwise and sliced) […]

  • Tangy Carrot-Apple Salad

    This recipe caught my eye in the October 2010 edition of Vegetarian Times magazine. Can you believe that tonight was the very first time that I made it?! I forgot about it for a long while, then I became extremely focused on soups for a long while 🙂 So even though you’d probably consider this […]

  • Energy Trail Mix

    Trail mix is a healthy, on-the-go snack that is easy to make, keeps well, travels well and is super tasty! A bag of trail mix is handy to have on hand regardless of whether you’re out and about at the park or at shops, or spending a day on the trails. The wonderful thing about […]

  • Tomato Vegetable Soup

    This is a simple but tasty vegetable soup that I made to use up a variety of different vegetables in my fridge. Sometimes I get a little carried away at the farmer’s market and buy more produce than I end up using in a week, but fortunately there is always soup to take care of […]

  • Curried Golden Beet Soup

    I love golden beets! They look so friendly and happy compared to the more common, and much more serious looking red beet 🙂 Nutritionally speaking, both types of beets pack a powerful punch with regard to vitamins and minerals (particularly rich in folate in manganese) as well as being rich in antioxidants. Betalains are the […]

  • Chicken and Spinach Breakfast Sausage

    We love breakfast sausage around here! For our morning protein I alternate between breakfast sausage, bacon, eggs and my raw liver smoothie. I prefer to make our breakfast sausage since then I know exactly what’s going into it (no artificial flavors, preservatives or nitrates here!) I typically make my Chicken and Apple breakfast sausage which […]

  • Homemade Beef Stock

    A good beef stock is a wonderful thing to have on hand. There’s nothing like a good beef stock to provide that beefy, hearty flavor in soups and casseroles. I also find that I get much more gelatin from my beef stock than I do from my chicken stock. It’s always a good idea to […]

  • Roasted Asparagus w/ Garlic and Ghee

    When I was a kid, my Mum would sometimes eat canned asparagus. Gross, tasteless, mushy, watery, disgusting! I couldn’t understand how anyone could like asparagus! At some point in my adult life, I tried freshly cooked asparagus, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Now, I eagerly look out for it at farmers markets once spring […]

  • Split Pea and Spinach Soup

    I was browsing a second hand bookstore in San Francisco a month or so ago, and came across an obscure little paperback (published in 1972) called The Art of Indian Cooking by Monica Dutt. I love Indian food, although I don’t like to get too fussy with it. But a quick glance at the recipes […]
