Vegan Mocha Biscotti with Candy Cane Sprinkle

Lifestyle, Recipes By December 22, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , , , , No Comments

I don’t know if these technically qualify as biscotti, as I had mine just slightly crunchy but still nice and chewy. I first created this recipe for the Holiday Healing Party hosted by Reiki Master and founder of Alternative Healer Toronto. Normally biscotti is used to dip into a coffee or hot drink but I also served a candy cane…

Chocolate Tahini Spread

I’m heading to Verona to guide the yoga on a weekend retreat and decided I would prepare and pack something made with love to share with the guests. We actually have to adhere to a special diet, no salt, no sugar, no wheat based products, etc.. (I tend to do this anyway) so I made this yummy spread. I actually…

The other day I decided to try and make coconut chocolate mint popsicles and they turend out… mmmm… okay, not great. They definitely lacked some texture and substance but that’s just how my¬†food experimentation is. It’s all part of the journey. My original post which I shared on instagram (click here to view it) was a really simple recipe and…

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…

Upon my last little visit to my beloved Argentina I found myself in an interesting position. It was the first time I’ve really been there and was extra conscious about what I ate. I never really ate much meat there, but I did really enjoy the Argentine Dulce de Leche. When in Argentina (or anywhere really) I like to embrace…

Creamy Vegan Chocolat Chaud

One of my favourite memories about my visit in Paris was sitting on a patio with my friend who was travelling with me and we were sipping on a glass of white French wine, when two guys at the next table began to chat with us. We eventually joined tables and I couldn’t take my eyes of the chocolat chaud…

I made these decadent Peppermint Infused Black Bean and Quinoa Brownies the other day for my Sexy Flexy class because I like to provide a healthy snack and if possible protein after a 2-hour full-body stretch class since it’s a pretty intense workout for the muscles. It also gives me an opportunity to try out new recipes, or at least…
