Coconut Water: Natures Gatorade

Coconut Water

It took me awhile to jump on the coconut water bandwagon, but it has become my latest food obsession. I am officially on board - and ordering them in bulk!

I don’t believe there is one food or superfood that is a “cure-all”, but that it takes a whole, healthy diet outlook to heal. Read the rest of this post »

Time to Get Serious

Gerson meals

It’s been a little while since I gave you an update on my health – so I wanted to share some things that have been happening.

Over the last few months I’ve been trying to heal a parasite infection thats been noticeably affecting me since around April. I think that I’m finally healing from that, and most of my symptoms have gone.

I had mentioned in my last health update that I was doing Gerson Therapy to about 85% of the diet, and that it was definitely showing improvement. Read the rest of this post »

Chinese Honey Soy “Beef” Tofu on Cauliflower Rice

Chinese Honey Soy Tofu

AHHHHHHH!

I’m sorry for screaming in your face. But this is one of the best things I’ve ever eaten.

Okay, okay. Deep breaths. Let me calm down a little bit.

So years and years (and years) ago I was obsessed with a dish, which was basically just beef strips marinated in a kecap manis sauce, over a gigantic pile of white rice. And it was amazing. I was a simple and easily pleased gal.

My second favourite dish was Chinese soy chicken wings over, you guessed it, a gigantic pile of white rice. Read the rest of this post »

Are Parasites Causing Your Unexplained Symptoms?

Parasite Killer Smoothie

Let’s talk a little bit about internal parasites, shall we?

Parasites are tiny organisms (usually worms) that live off another organism and feed off it’s nutrition. Most can only be seen with a microscope so they can be hard to discover, although they can be much larger, like tapeworms.

They can also be hard to discover because depending on the type of parasite (of which there are many) the symptoms will vary from one extreme to another. If you have any random symptoms, not just digestive ones, and you haven’t found a cause, check for parasites. Read the rest of this post »

Roasted Pumpkin + Apple Coconut Soup with Potato Chip Dippers (Vegan + Gluten-Free)

Pumpkin Apple Coconut Soup

Real winter is finally here! You know shit’s getting real when you start making pumpkin soup.

I’ve never been a huge fan of pumpkin soup, or really soup in general – it just doesn’t fill me up or leave me satisfied as a meal on it’s own. But this soup is different.

It’s deeply flavourful, thanks to the slow roasting of the pumpkin + onion + apples. And it’s also satisfying and filling thanks to the coconut milk / cream and potatoes. Read the rest of this post »

My Top 5 Essential Kitchen Tools

Do I really need a whole appliance just to cook a pizza in? Who has that much kitchen space?!
