High Park

My friend asked me this morning “What would it take you to go raw again?” a commitment I said. And I feel almost ready for one. I have to admit that I loved how I felt when I ate all raw. However, cooked food is fun and I am enjoying what I consider an intermission into cooked foods. I am really enjoying the process of making them as healthy, flavorful and delicious as I can, as well as finding lots of great ways to get in as many vegetables as possible.

Mom & I are getting settled into our new flat in Toronto and it’s taking a little longer than I expected but I guess I didn’t quite realize how big a transition it was. We downsized so much on the other side I thought we would fit into our new place. But perhaps I should have realized, having lived in Toronto before, that the average size home is much smaller than those from the east coast. And especially Moms home, which was (3200 sq feet) pretty huge. || Read more

Intense blueberry smoothies

So, it’s finally here, moving day. Well, the moving truck came Monday and we have our long drive to Toronto tomorrow. Then just a few days until we move into our new place. I don’t even have the official move in date yet, when the moving truck is there and ready to unload. But I do have pictures to share our adventure and smoothie inspiration to share with you! || Read more

I am in the middle of moving right now, but it has been longer than usual since I have shared new recipes with you. We made these oven baked falafels at a retreat at the Lotus Heart Center recently. I have a few recipes still to share from there. These falafels are quite easy to make and they are healthy both because of the ingredients in them and because they are baked and not deep fried or even pan fried as most falafels are. || Read more

Lotus Heart Center Retreat Dining

I hope to share some new meal ideas with you through the menu plan that I made up and followed for the recent Padmani Yoga retreat, hosted by YuMee Chung at the Lotus Heart Center. YuMee and the yoga teachers that she had gathered were a beautiful, heart centered, high vibe group of people and it was a joy to be making food for them. Check out more about YuMee and Jivamukti Yoga below, then come check out what was happening in the kitchen during her technical training intensive retreat. || Read more

Every day lately I have been making a daily trek to the medicine wheel located at the far north west corner on the property of the Lotus Heart Center Retreat. There are interwoven beautiful trails that will lead you there, if you don’t get lost. I get lost easily (which can make life lots of fun) but I’m getting these trails down. Often I forage on my way back to make a really powerful, intensely nutritious superfood smoothie. You know that the healthiest foods are often found in your own backyard, don’t you? || Read more
