Too scrumptious not to share ….

Detox in a bowl – less than 30 minutes ! Recipe to follow. Flowers by Sue La Coccinelle – Chelsea QC La Coccinelle Chelsea – Flower and Plant Market in Old Chelsea

I know…’s been way too long . 21 Days in a row and them BAM…..silence for the next two months!

I’m only just starting to overhaul my website now. Summer has gotten in the way of things ๐Ÿ™‚

Early morning swims, biking and lots and lots of visitors. Hence….tons of cooking.

This time of year there are so many good things to choose from produce wise. Everything is so fresh and beautiful.

I am attempting to get back in the swing of things and thought I would share some absolutely divine recipes.

Taking photos is not always my forte but I’m a work in progress. This tasted so good I couldn’t not share !

Grilled flatbread roasted veggie chicken sandwich

Flatbread is so simple and full of goodness….

You can put anything in it. My creation was a combo of roasted cherry tomatoes from Juniper Farm ; fresh corn; grilled chicken breast; vegganaise ; beet slaw ( recipe to follow ) and feta cheese.


I toasted mine in a sandwich press . It doesn’t look half as good as it tasted ๐Ÿ™‚

Blueberry Bliss Smoothie ๐Ÿ™‚ I liked to split this with my daughter while she was home visiting ๐Ÿ™‚

1 Cup Kefir 10-benefits-of-kefir

1 cup wild blueberries ( or any berry will do – whatever you have )

1 banana ( frozen )

A touch of maple syrup to taste

1 tsp acai powder ( optional )

1 tsp bee pollen ( optional )

1 TBSP each ( hemp seed; chia seeds; flax seeds)

Vanilla to taste

Blackberry Crumble Bar . I can’t even describe how wonderful these taste. I can’t share the recipe because it comes from my latest cookbook obsession Good For Your Gut Cookbook – Desiree Nielsen โ€บ Books I will be featuring this book in an upcoming blog .

There is a recipe that I haven’t tried but I’m sure would be just as wonderful vegan-peach-blackberry-crumble-crisp and available on Desiree Nielsen’s website. It’s on my list of things to try. If you happen to try it let me know what you think!

Again …. my apologies for the photo ! This is soooooooo scrumptious . Vegan-bbq-jackfruit-burrito

Have you even heard of jackfruit ?? I’ve been wanting to try it forever and finally I gave it a try. Great alternative to pork and turns out it’s a superfood Even Sergio loved it ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh and I decided to make my own tortillas. Super simple. Mine turned out a wee bit on the thick side and were more like naan bread but, they actually tasted delicious Best-ever-homemade-flour-tortillas

One week they were selling Thai Basil at Juniper farm . Found a recipe on First Mess , my favourite go to

I added crispy tofu to mine ….to die for ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are a few more links. I forgot to take a photo but this has turned out to be one of my hit recipes when I’m entertaining. Fresh and simple ! peach-salad-with-maple-pistachios-and-chile-butter-dressing
