Dancing with Fire in Koh Phi Phi

I wanted to get out of Chiang Mai suddenly so I hopped on a bus to Bangkok. It arrived 2 hours earlier than expected and rather then pay a taxi 500 baht to spend the day in the city (I’m not nuts about Bangkok anyway) I said Fuk-it, I’m going to Pooh-ket. That 500 baht I saved was well spent,…

Zesty Pesto Kale Chips

Lifestyle, Recipes By July 21, 2016 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , 2 Comments

A very simple recipe that turned out wonderfully. Kale chips are a great way to replace regular chips or get that same satisfaction when you have the munchies for something crunchy. You can dress kale chips a million different ways, this was my most recent creation. I will post a recipe for pesto soon, but feel free to use one…

Chocolate Coconut Baked Banana Bites

I made this recipe the other day because for the first time I bought steel cut oats and wanted to give them a try. I thought it might be nice to make a banana loaf or something along those lines, and I didn’t really look at any recipes but I just mixed some ingredients I had into a pot and…

Now I’m in a small pueblo called Chapala (about an hour away from Guadalajara, Mexico) visiting my father. It’s a cute little town and suprisingly has quite a bit to offer. The other day we went to an organic market where I picked up some delicious ingredient’s and some sprouted tortillas, vegan apple bread, vegetables, samosas and various flavours of…

Quick & Healthy Quinoa Breakfast

Health, Lifestyle By January 2, 2016 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

As someone who doesn’t eat meat, the first question I often get asked is ‘How do you get your protein’? The protein really is not a problem, I find it in all sorts of ways. Quinoa (pronounced: Keen-wah) for example is an excellent and complete source of protein that is incredibly nutritious. Here in Brazil, I bought myself some organic…

Brazilian Mango & Black Bean Salsa

Health, Lifestyle By January 2, 2016 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

I’m a huge believer in the importance of eating fresh, local produce. Now that I’m in Brasil, tropical fruit is abundant and as I face my fruit phobias I’m exploring flavours and today I actually used an entire mango and turned it into a delicious salsa. I think I always knew Brasil would be the place that I would have…

Tasty Tapioca Salad with Tangy Salsa, Black Beans, Coconut and Mango

Lifestyle By December 31, 2015 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

I have been embracing the culture here in Brasil as much as I can within my own health restrictions… Tapioca is now on my food radar, I love it and although it’s a carb, it’s actually gluten-free so I’ve been enjoying it occasionally. I once made the mistake of getting tapioca from someone selling on the street. Needless to say,…

Ano Novo en Brasil

Well I spent Christmas here in Brasil, and now it’s time to ring the New Year. I was speaking last night with a Brazilian and she filled me in a little bit about the New Year’s superstitions and traditions. One thing I already knew was that Brazilian tradition is to wear white, I planned for this before I left Toronto…
