This year I have Canada-ized one of my favourite simple, healthy treats to bring to the table, picnic, float... or wherever you may be heading this Canada Day! With a creamy coconut milk base, delicately sweetened with a dash of local maple syrup this simple-to-prepare chia pudding brings all of the sensations of summer to the party. Layered with fresh mashed raspberries for a sweet tang and bringing our patriotic colours together, this is a treat to delight as much as this beautiful country does!
Surprise Spring 60's and sunny days made for an ever-changing landscape out in K Country this week. I was grateful for my favourite winter boots, saving me from a repeat of The Wet Sock Tragedy and for Mother Nature turning it on!
This is one of my favourite go-to's for a really easy midweek recipe because let's face it, by the time I get home all I really want to do is pull on my holey track pants, cuddle the fur-child and get reacquainted with my couch. With a creamy coconut base and the delicate flavours of lemongrass and lime, a bowl of this Tom Kha is sure to transport you to a balmy evening, lounging in a cafe in Thailand surrounded by palm trees. Well maybe not exactly, but pretty close!
I'm going to let you in on a little Kananaskis favourite of mine that even on my laziest days, is guaranteed to get me pulling on the wool socks, grabbing the snowshoes, texting the girls and heading out the door.
These little sweeties are a treat to behold for all of my gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and yeast-free friends as the Spring Solstice approaches. Whilst they are not 'hot' buns, they are so reminisce of the lovely warm spice flavours of the traditional hot cross buns that begin to appear on the bakery shelves this time of year.
Let's Think Dirty! Not like in the gutter dirty, but dirty as in the added toxins, chemicals and numbers that fill the ingredient lists of the products that we use on a daily basis. This app will help guide you to your cleanest bathroom yet - products wise I mean, you're still going to need to scrub it every so often! It will help you identify how 'clean' or 'dirty' the products in your current collection really are and provide great alternatives if any aren't the best for you.
When I first started considering my daily impact on the earth and how I could start transitioning to a less wasteful life, the kitchen stood out like the naughty kid in class. Cling wrap for left overs, plastic food packaging, paper towels for all sorts of odd jobs, zip lock bags for food storage, plastic ice cube trays, garbage bin liners, plastic utensils that will be here forevermore.
Pina Colada meets Italian Soda as this sweet, tangy delight is muddled with creamy organic coconut milk and cubes of ice to meld winter and summer together...
