Healthy Homemade Soy Milk

March 17th, 2017

Happy Saturday! I had such a fun day today teaching my good friend (and amazing author!) Lisa, how to make her own, healthy soy milk. We soaked, blended and boiled our soy beans until we had many bottles of fresh, delicious soy milk that you definitely can't buy in the store! Because it was such a success, I though I'd share the easy, affordable, efficient recipe with you. Here's to creating fresh, creamy chemical-free soy milk, cheers! Continue Reading...

Time For Turmeric Milk!

March 17th, 2017

If you're a regular reader of this blog, you'll know my heart beats strong for nut milks. I love the process of making them as much as the end product which tastes creamy and so good. Before I made nut milks, I would buy them from the store - thinking I was doing the right thing for my body, as I had read all about how dairy can really aggravate the digestive system, especially if you're Continue Reading...

Go Nuts for This Coconut Milk!

March 17th, 2017

Making your own nut milk is incredibly simple...it really is. Way before I became a Natural Foods Chef I was making my own nut milk because I was so sick of buying expensive dairy-free milks that not only tasted like plastic (thanks to the BPA-lined cans they were packaged in) but also because of the laundry list of 'added' ingredients included. Continue Reading...

Easy Peasy Green Smoothie

March 17th, 2017

In between studying, cooking and studying here in New York City, I have been working on a series of fun n' yum videos to share with you. It's part of a delicious collaboration between my school, the Natural Gourmet Institute and my favourite magazine of all time, Yoga Journal - exciting stuff for this enthusiastic Natural Foods Chef-slash-Yogini! All too often we get so busy with life that food takes a backseat. It's so much easier to grab something from the shelves of the supermarket that looks remotely healthy (or maybe not) to sustain us until the next time our tummy grumbles. I totally get it. I've been there, done that for way too long than I'd like to admit. There was a time in my life when Continue Reading...

How To Make a Gorgeous Green Smoothie

March 15th, 2017

They are easy to make, incredibly convenient and such a brilliant way to pack in as much plant matter and vegetables as you can first thing in the morning. I became a fan of smoothies back in my modelling days when I had no time to eat due to auditions and jobs often located on different sides of town. My options were limited to: not eating at all (which I did for a period of time but it wasn't for me!), eat something from a packet, or 'make and take' my own food. Continue Reading...
