NECTARINE BASIL SALAD WITH PINEAPPLE BALSAMIC VINAIGRETTE

I’m totally in love with nectarines right now, and I’ve been making this simple salad for lunch a lot lately! It’s quick to whip together and combines a delicious summer flavour profile — nectarines and basil. You could also have this salad for dinner, just add some grilled chicken, shrimp (or more almonds) and you’re set! In this recipe I use a pineapple balsamic white vinegar from Lucero Olive Oil, which I picked up in Napa Valley last summer (and have been rationing like an insane person), because it’s absolutely heavenly.

CHERRY CRUMBLE SMOOTHIE

In honour of Canada Day, I’m sharing a red and white smoothie recipe inspired by one of my favourite summer desserts — cherry crumble! It’s cherry season in Canada, so I wanted to incorporate cherries into a healthy, nutrition packed smoothie that you can enjoy anytime of day (even though it tastes like a dessert!). My Cherry Crumble Smoothie also contains an unexpected superfood vegetable that makes it naturally sweet and decadent tasting — just like real cherry crumble. Continue Reading

VEGAN SOUTHWEST QUINOA BOWLS

This is a pretty nerdy confession… but it’s really fun for me to try to recreate restaurant dishes I love at home! I enjoy the challenge of figuring out what ingredients were used and attempting to make restaurant-inspired cuisine — it pushes me out of my comfort zone and I end up combining ingredients I wouldn’t usually pair together (like the Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing in this recipe). My Vegan Southwest Quinoa Bowls are inspired by the Viva Bowl at NYC’s Local Thyme (where I ate lunch almost every day during my time in Manhattan!) — but with my own spin, and tons of extra veggies! Did you know that today is National Eat Your Vegetables Day? Continue Reading

My Crudité Style Niçoise Salad is my favourite salad to make after a trip to the farmer’s market! There’s a ton of beautiful, seasonal produce available right now, and this simple salad lets the ingredients shine. I like to serve this salad crudité-style — that way everyone can take what they like and customize their plates. This is a girl dinner classic; a nutrition-packed, hearty salad that tastes just as good as it looks! Continue Reading

SUPERFOOD SHAMROCK SMOOTHIE

Have you ever had a Shamrock Shake? I can honestly say that I haven’t, but I know the limited edition Shamrock Shake has a cult following, and people go nuts over it every year come mid-February. The shake is minty and creamy, and I thought it would be fun to put a healthy spin on it for St. Patrick’s Day. I need to get my St. Patty’s beverage fix in somehow, and my green-beer-drinking college days are long gone (hey, I am half Irish, after all)! My version is dairy free, gluten free and vegan, plus it’s made without food colouring and refined sugar.
