The 'so nice we've already made them twice in 2022' cinnamon buns have officially found their forever home on the blog! There were a lot of questions about this recipe over on instagram so I figured they deserved their own little space on the world wide web. I'm about to start my yearly FMD, which means I'd typically cut my sugar and carbohydrate intake a few days prior to make the transition into this high fat, low calorie 'fast' easier on my body. Unfortunately for my future fast, it's a snow day today & I have 1/2 a can of coconut…

After an unseasonably warm early October it's finally starting to feel like fall around here; the air is cool and crisp, the days are getting shorter, my main closet is full of cashmere & and my weekly organic delivery box is loaded with delicious fall produce. Personally, this doctor is really into seasonally appropriate eating when it comes to maintaining optimal health. As the weather cools I replace my smoothies and salads with warming soups, stews & elixirs to prepare my digestive and immune systems for the cold winter months ahead. Not only is this approach to food better for…

Fall things; foraged mushrooms sundresses, booties + cardigans golf cold lake dips pumpkin / cinnamon / apple everything marathon walks farmer's markets dinner straight from the garden red wine + scotch cashmere apple-picking backyard bon fires baking (specifically, these millet pear muffins) I hope you enjoy my first foray back to the oven this fall; these gluten-free + vegan millet & pear muffins were an absolutely winner from this doctor's pumpkin-scented, fresh produce packed, soup-simmering fall kitchen. Print Millet & Pear Muffins Fall baking at it's finest. I highly recommend you grab some pears at your local farmer's market this…

This vegan recipe features tempeh - an Indonesian plant-based protein made from fermented soybeans. Unlike tofu, tempeh is made from the whole bean and contains more nutrients, fibre and iron than it's highly processed counterpart. While most soy products have a bad reputation in the functional medicine space, I firmly believe that tempeh is the ultimate vegan health food and should be put in a separate category. Tempeh is nutrient-dense organic soy product with a high amount of protein (around 20g / serving) and calcium. A recently study from Malaysia determined that the calcium from this plant-based source is equally well…

You guys have been really excited about this recipe on instagram. I was going to make you all wait until it comes out in the spring issue of Whole Family magazine but this is just the kind of recipe that is perfect for snowy February mornings, so it felt cruel to withhold it any longer. Here they are! My favourite breakfast. These low carb, gluten-free scones are a great option when you’re craving something savoury & comforting in the morning. They get their cheesy flavour from B12-rich nutritional yeast and taste fabulous when paired with some cashew cream cheese and smoked…

Happy New Year, from this doctor's 2021 kitchen. Before we get into my much requested cinnamon bun recipe, I'd like to first thank you guys for your patience with me this year. Many of you have been DM-ing and emailing me asking for new recipes, and unfortunately by the end of 2020 I just didn't have anything left over for writing or recipe-developing. This year has been undoubtedly difficult for everyone, and while I've appreciated the forced reframe, new puppy and time at home I have not loved the amount of time, energy and emotion that this year has cost…

Does anyone else feel like it's been raining for an entire year? The past few days in Ontario have been unseasonably gloomy and grey so I'm incorporating all of my tried and true ways to banish the rainy day blues: puppy snuggles, yoga, tons of tea & bright, beautiful warming meals like this sunny af soup. I've been testing various recipes using those beautiful orange cauliflowers from my local farmers market and this one is definitely a winner. In additional to in-season cauliflower it's also loaded with anti-inflammatory turmeric and contains plenty of carotenoids thanks to all them orange vegetables…

Seed cycling is so hot right now! I love when traditional food-based hormone balancing practices start trending in the wellness space. Your girl here has been seed cycling for years, but if you're new to the seed game you may be surprised to learn that I often prescribe seeds to female patients with heavy cycles, period pain and all kinds of less than ideal hormonal symptoms. Seed rotation, or seed cycling is a cheap and easy way to naturally boost estrogen levels when they should be highest in the first part of the female reproductive cycle (follicular phase) and progesterone…

I don't pasta often, but when I do it's this dairy-free, gluten-free lemony zucchini-filled wonder recipe.  Typically, I prefer my noodles in the form of Thai food (usually glass noodles only, I really really don't do well with a ton of carbs) - Ky and I started the tradition of ordering Thai food on Sunday's years ago and have been pretty consistent in our regular weekend curry consumption. While I do love a good food-based tradition the time inside / off work this year had me questioning a lot of our priorities, goals and spending ... Since starting my practice…

These vegan coconut macaroons were a long time in the making; many bags of shredded coconut were lost to the process of developing an edible (dare I even say, delicious) macaroon recipe free of egg whites and sugar. After months of experiments I've finally nailed the perfect ratios and replacements - just in time for passover. Coconut macaroons are the ideal dessert during the holiday as they do not contain any flour or other 'forbidden' Passover foods and Grandma usually brings out a can of Manischewitz macaroon's at the end of the Passover seder to accompany her homemade apple sauce…
