Gluten-Free Vegan Banana Muffins

When life gives you bananas, make muffins! That’s how the saying goes right? One of the biggest challenges my clients have when they are navigating foods that may trigger acne is figuring out what snacks they can eat that won’t cause a breakout. These gluten-free, vegan banana muffins are an excellent morning or afternoon snack option as they have no dairy, no gluten and no-refined sugar, yet they are full of healthy fats and lots of fibre. From start to finish, these muffins take less than 30 minutes to make and will please even the toughest critic. (They are [...]

Gluten & Dairy-Free Anzac Cookies

G’day mate! This post comes to you while my feet are firmly planted on the red soils of Australia. I decided to escape the Canadian winter for a taste of Australian summer so that I could visit my bestie in Sydney.

Anzac cookies are an Australian [...]

Gluten-Free Molasses Cookies

There's something about these cookies that makes you want to throw on some reading socks, curl up with a good book, a mug of tea, and settle in for the evening. These gluten-free molasses cookies are totally guilt free, and since they have no refined-white sugar, they are a wonderful indulgent treat that won't wreak havoc on your skin.

Easy Christmas Morning Cranberry Tangerine Smoothie

Christmas morning can be absolutely hectic, regardless of whether you have kids or you’re just a big kid yourself. It’s an exciting day full of tradition, presents and treats, but that doesn’t mean that it has to be devoid of healthy, nourishing foods. One of my biggest pieces of advice to you and all of my clients looking to eat a clean, nourishing diet is to ensure that you make breakfast as healthy as humanly possible. That way if the day gets away from you, you can still rely on the healthy meal you had at the start of your [...]

Venison Stew

I am a huntress. I grew up in a family of hunters, and got my hunting license at the early age of 12. Between 12 and 27 I can’t say I did a lot of hunting, but as I became more interested in holistic health I wanted to gain a deeper understanding for the food I was consuming to fuel my body. If I was going to eat meat, I wanted to ensure it was the healthiest and best quality, like the meat in my venison stew recipe. One thing I quickly learned about hunting is that it is [...]

Hemp Pumpkin Porridge

What do you do when you need to make breakfast, but you’re out of eggs, and you’re out of oats? If you're trying to keep your skin clear, you're probably avoiding gluten (so most bread's out) and dairy (forget that bowl of cereal). So what the heck is a girl to eat? I highly recommend always having some hemp hearts in your fridge, so you can make this delicious hemp pumpkin porridge. Let’s take a moment and talk about hemp, and why I love it so much. Not only does it taste delicious due to its mild nutty flavour, [...]

Brown Butter Ghee

A little bird once told me that a certain Vancouver-based yoga pants company likes to ask challenging and creative questions during their interviews. One of these questions was “Describe a time you experienced a happy accident”. At the time that I heard of this interview question, I’d have had no idea how to answer it, and likely would have cried. Now, however, I totally have the best answer ever, and it’s my discovery of how to make Brown Butter Ghee. I’ll be the first to admit that I can be a lazy cook. I don’t really like measuring, and [...]

Dairy-Free, Vegan Queso Dip Recipe

Those who know me well, know that I am the last person to ever self-identify as a vegan, but going dairy-free to help manage my acne has me up to my eyeballs in vegan recipes on the Internet, trying to find a reprieve for my massive cheese cravings! #cheeseaddict With a few other friends who are dairy-free, and a party to attend, I was inspired to concoct a snack to share that was easy on my skin, but embodied all things CHEESE!
