Vegan Apple, Peach, and Ginger Crumble

I have the most delicious twist to an apple crumble, to share with you. And the best part… it’s vegan! Have I ever mentioned how much I love fall? Dressing in layers, pumpkin spice everything, apple picking… Really, what’s not to love. We recently visited Taves Farm in Abbottsford for Sienna’s 5th birthday. This is […]

Snack Time

Recently we’ve started to eat a mainly plant-based diet, in addition to eating organic and gluten-free. I’m this sounds great on paper, but the reality of it is that it’s not always easy to know what to make for dinner.

Scrambled Egg Lettuce Wraps

In my ongoing efforts to eat healthy, aside from ice cream and chocolate, I’ve been trying to remove bread from my diet. Breakfast is my favorite meal, but it’s been challenging to not have toast with my eggs. The eggs in avocado were such a success that it must have boosted my ego, and encourage […]
