The 5 Best Gluten-Free Recipes

If you haven’t caught on, a few months ago I found that my body decided for me to go gluten-free. It’s been a big change in my life – goodbye soft, fluffy bread – but one that I’ve tried to deal with as gracefully as possible.

Tea Time: My Favourite Teas

Tea is the ultimate drink. There, I’ve said it.

I discovered the delightful beverage in high school and found it a much more pleasant alternative to bitter coffee. Ever since, if I’m meeting with a friend, popping into the office, or sitting at home, I almost always have a cup in front of me.

When friends come to visit they know I’ll have a mug ready for them. And over the years there are certain teas I always have in my apartment. A cup a day keeps the yawns away. As I write this, I’m having a chai latte.Read More

Favourites Friday #69: Bon Appétit!

I love food. Food is something that can take on so many different forms depending on the culture, the situation, and the palate. It’s just fascinating.

This week I got to experience so many different foods as I started doing my 98% paleo (I make few exceptions) diet and tried out some new recipes because I’m just that kind of girl. Aka, a girl who realizes she’s a grown woman who needs to start cooking instead of heating up everything in the Trader Joe’s frozen section.

Favourites Friday #64: That {lactose} Intolerant Life

One of the worst things that ever happened to me was finding out that I am lactose intolerant. No, not because I could no longer chug 2% milk, but I found out because my stomach had horrible grumbling fits during my 5th period chemistry class where I sat right behind my crush.

Yes, milk was the cause of my tragic lack of love.

But six years later I have learned to deal with leaving lactose out of my diet. No, it’s not quite as fun as eating whatever you want, but adopting a more dairy-free diet has definitely improved my health and made eating with friends with an actual allergy not as bad.

Below are five amazing tricks to eating lactose-free in the last few years (and some in the last week) that I think everyone should try because they taste just as good as the lactose!Read More

Today’s recipe comes from all of my favourite things to eat (lemon, garlic, shrimp, pasta) and the fact that one pot meals are the only meals I am interested in making. I love being in the kitchen, but not while doing the dishes. This pasta dish is perfect for comfort night, but healthy enough to not feel guilty for having a second helping. And there’s tons to share with that special someone!

Bon appetit!Read More
