WHIPPED VANILLA BEAN GHEE

WHIPPED VANILLA BEAN GHEE

Ghee, collagen, bone broth, kale.... all big buzz words in the health world these days. Despite just gaining mainstream popularity in the past couple years, these are traditional foods that have been around forever. I LOVE that these foods are getting the attention they deserve. They are nourishing, healing, and some of my favourite superfoods. [...]

SPICY MARGS SANS SUGAR

SPICY MARGS SANS SUGAR

My first experience with a JalapeƱo margarita was about 4 years ago at my forever favourite Mexican restaurant, Cantina Del Centro in Nelson, BC. Their patio is right on Baker Street and is the perfect place to sit in the summer for a drink. They have a killer gluten free menu, their tacos are to [...]

PALEO GINGER BEEF

PALEO GINGER BEEF

I love ginger beef from chinese restaurants.

THE QUEST FOR A FUNCTIONAL NON TOXIC DEODORANT

THE QUEST FOR A FUNCTIONAL NON TOXIC DEODORANT

I think the dangers of conventional deodorants and antiperspirants are the most widely known of hygiene products. It seems that most people are trying to find a nontoxic deodorant alternative due to the direct application near lymph tissue and the link between breast cancer and chemicals such as parabens in deodorants. That means that most [...]
