Sweet Potato Dumplings

Seasonal recipe number one is some serious comfort food.  Some seriously nutrient dense, delicious-as-all-hell seasonal comfort food.  I’ve been craving mashed sweet potatoes for literally weeks now, but for some reason I’ve been loading up on butternut and pumpkin instead, and neglecting the old sweet potato.  But today was finally…

Everyone Is Vegan Month of Holiday Food, Facebook, and Twitter!

Every year, I love watching the posting frenzy of Vegan MoFo, the “Vegan Month of Food,” during which vegan food bloggers post more(!) food, more recipes, more restaurants reviews, more everything for an entire month.  This year’s MoFo spanned the month of November, and just came to a close.  I wanted to…

The Lazy Nutritionist

I promised a busy week, and a busy week I had.  In it’s grand finale, yesterday I spent 8+ hours hanging out and working at the Whole Life Expo, consuming my weight in kombucha, kale chips, and some other raw noms.  That’s basically my idea of the perfect convenience diet,…

Stress-busting, immune boosting.

I’m really busy this week.  Or, I feel like I am.  Busy for me.  I’m not a “busy” person, I kind of hate it, actually.  I love my down time, my “lazy” time.  But sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, like work two part time jobs while slogging…

Chocolate Socca.

I know, I know.  I said kale was up next.  But then I ate CHOCOLATE SOCCA for brunch today and, well, that was that. To say I’m obsessed with socca right now might be putting it mildly.  I was eating the crispy, savoury rosemary socca a couple of evenings ago…

Socca. Farinata. Chickpea pancake. Thingy.

I’ve been making socca for about a year and a half now.  Or maybe I’ve been making farinata.  Or maybe the purists would say I’ve been making blasphemy.  Either way, I’ve been making some sort of chickpea flour flatbread pancake type thingy in a skillet in a really hot oven, for a while now….

Everyone is Vegan.

Everyone is vegan?  Seriously?  WTF, right?  No, they’re not.  My best friend eats like a caveman on purpose.  Totally the opposite of a vegan.  So, let me explain this. In our “Professional Practice” class at nutrition school, we were asked to create a “vision board” of what we saw ourselves doing after…
