Kiwi Yogurt Tart (Gluten free)

Breakfast, Desserts

Double Kiwi Yogurt Tart by Tori Wesszer from Fraiche Nutrition. So beautiful and healthy, great as a dessert or even for breakfast!

There are few things in this world more beautiful than the flesh of a kiwifruit. The contrast and symmetry makes them a pure work of art: way to show off Mother Nature! I was SO excited to have the chance to partner with Zespri Kiwifruit to make a couple of recipes with kiwis! Kiwifruit, are a nutrient-dense food, meaning they … View The Post

Pastel Bikini Smoothie Bowls

Breakfast, Gluten-Free, Smoothies, Snacks

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

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

Crustless Asparagus Quiche (gluten-free)

Quiche is one of those things that I make for special occasions, and my Quiche Lorraine recipe is always a hit.  I wanted to make a more ‘springy’ version without the crust to lighten it up a bit more (I use lighter cream and far less bacon than a traditional version does as well).  Of course make sure that your … View The Post

Potato, Cheddar & Chive Waffles (vegan option)

Breakfast, Recipes, Snacks, Vegan

Waffles are a ‘thing’ at our house. Now, I’ve had the same old waffle iron since my university days (translation: a long time ago), so was rather thrilled to get a new top-of-the-line Breville Smart Waffle Maker from Best Buy Canada!  They have so many to choose from, but this one caught my eye.  Kind of like the Cadillac of … View The Post

Tropical Chia Pudding

Breakfast, Desserts, Gluten-Free, Lifestyle, Snacks

I doubt that I need to explain how awesome chia seeds are for your health, but since it’s Nutrition Month, I want to put in a good word for them.  Not that they need my help, they’ve kind of been the golden child of the superfood movement! Chia seeds may not look like much, but they pack a big nutrition … View The Post
