Pastel Bikini Smoothie Bowls by Fraiche Nutrition made with Genuine Health Protein Powder

Back in university I used to eat the same thing for breakfast EVERY day: a bowl of cereal.  Sure, the cereal choice would change a bit, or I would add some fruit to it, but there wasn’t a lot of variety.  While I still love a good bowl of cereal, I find that my breakfast, and every other meal, changes … View The Post

Almond Chocolate-Dipped Popsicles (vegan)

Dessert, Snacks, Vegan

Almond Roca chocolate vegan dipped popsicles using almond beverage by Tori Wesszer Fraiche Nutrition

Growing up, Almond Roca was one of my all-time favourite treats.  My grandparents ALWAYS had a tub of it kicking around the house and to this day it carries big sentimental value.  Fast-forward to the adult me, and I still love the treat…but it’s clearly a ‘sometimes food’! The hot summer days ahead and my fond childhood memories inspired me … View The Post

The Great Granola Showdown

Breakfast, Lifestyle

Once upon a time you would visit a grocery store shelf in search of granola and have 2-3 products to pick from.  Fast forward to today and that aisle is PACKED with options…which is wonderful and overwhelming at the same time!  Granola, a simple cereal usually made from oats, nuts, fruit, some source of fat and something to sweeten it, … View The Post

Apple Cinnamon French Toast Bake (Dairy Free)

It was a fluke that I ended up getting a job there, our dear family friend from Münich that we met one year camping made the connection.  I mean, I had no business waitressing in the first place to be honest, … View The Post

Lemon Garlic Sautéed Asparagus

Sides, Vegetables

Asparagus is rich in Vitamin A (for immune function and vision) and Vitamin C (antioxidant), Vitamin K (helps blood clot), fibre (need I explain what that helps) and is packed with folate, otherwise known as B9. Folate … View The Post

Lemon Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

Breakfast

No need for an explanation here.  Fluffy buttermilk pancakes infused with lemon, a touch of vanilla, and studded with juicy blueberries.  Is there any better way to start a Sunday morning? I think not!

Spring Vegan Salads

Salads, Vegan

I don’t usually post two days in a row, but I’ve had a busy week already in the kitchen and couldn’t wait to share these recipes: I LOVE a good salad! (Charlie even listed it as my favourite food on my Mother’s Day card, he knows me well). I remember the first time that I went to France and ordered … View The Post

Lime Capellini with Seared Scallops

Main Dishes, Sides

I was thrilled to do a cooking demo at the Okanagan Eats Food Show today, and decided to make this pasta for the crowd.  It was hard to settle on what to make but I chose this dish as it embraces a lot of what I ‘stand’ for: moderation and balance (among other things).
