Review: Vegan Pudding & Co

How do I find places that I want to review?  Well through instagram…. and food porn.  I love looking at food pictures and following others who live in Vancouver and seeing what they eat.  I would like to try more places but I only can eat so much and going out is  expensive.  So I…

Vegan Cauliflower Alfredo

Creamy, dairy free, egg free, tasty, noms, yum.  I have finally perfected my recipe for cauliflower alfredo sauce.  You won’t miss the cheese or dairy.  It is also a sneaky way to get your kids to eat veggies.  I think this is also great for someone who is watching their calorie intake.

Kombucha Update #4

I started brewing my own Kombucha in Jan 2013.  At that time I was still consuming white sugar. In 2014, I decided to slowly remove white sugar from my diet. It has been tough and challenging, but I am lucky that I can still have other forms of sweeteners.  During this transition I decided that…

Non-Dairy Creamer

Going dairy free can be hard. Especially when you love the rich creamy taste of milk in your coffee.  I have been looking for an alternative for quite a while.  The soy creamers that are available are usually full of sugar (which as you know I cannot have). I tried hemp milk, almond milk, cashew…

What the Yucca!

Yucca, tapioca, cassava, the root with many names.  As I went through my eczema elimination diet I had to avoid most bread and potato. I looked for alternatives and found the good old yucca root.  I have always wondered what that weird root was.  It kind of scared me.  That’s when I found out that…

The Eczema Diet Part #3: Coconut Yogurt

I recently started seeing a naturopath for my eczema.  I had an IgG test to see what my foods sensitivities.  Most of them were the typical ones; nuts, egg, most grains including rice, dairy and citrus fruit but I had weird results like yeast, and green beans. I wasn’t allergic to gluten! woohoo!  I had…

Eczema Diet Part 4… Chickpea Cookies

It has been a while since I started the eczema. I do have to say it is pretty tough especially when food is so good. I still have to learn to say no!  Lately I have been craving sweets.  I have a major sweet tooth and thought that it had something to do with Candida…
