Eating real food with real ingredients usually means you need to make things from scratch. Like granola bars. Even the ones with organic ingredients usually have way more added sugar than needed. I was really excited when I found My Whole Food Life’s recipe, and decided to double it and substitute applesauce for a banana-free […]
I have been on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) for several months now, in an effort to heal small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and see if it has an effect on my eczema. On this diet, you start out with no carbohydrates (except for well-cooked carrots, apple cider, and grape juice) then slowly progress, one […]
I was looking for a good moist chocolate cake recipe for my daughter’s 4th birthday party, but this year I wanted to try some of the grain-free recipes I’ve come across. I tried a black bean brownie recipe that was super rich and delicious, and I also tried an almond flour based recipe that was […]
Recently I had the opportunity to sample some gluten-free instant oatmeal cups from Libre Naturals – which I bought through ethical Deal. I loved it so much, I got in contact with them to do a review and giveaway!
Attempting to go wheat-free (and a step further – gluten-free) is certainly challenging.

Had a chance to make a quick trip to Costco and was delighted to find a couple of great organic and gluten-free deals! I was super-stoked to see this one: Suzie’s (the maker of one of my staples from Costco – rice cakes or corn cakes) now has gluten-free pasta!
This recipe is a variation on the super-easy Strawberry Chia Jam. The addition of rhubarb is perfect for rhubarb season (my rhubarb plant has exploded for the second time this summer). Rhubarb is also a vegetable, and since my daughter doesn’t eat a whole lot of vegetables, this jam is an easy way to get a bit of […]
A friend of mine was telling me about how she got chia seeds in bulk at Bulk Barn. This definitely piqued my interest since I’ve been using chia seeds a lot more lately to make Strawberry Chia Jam. I have to admit that I hadn’t actually been inside Bulk Barn (crazy, I know!) because I […]
