Steamed Purple Sweet Potato and Cocoa Rolls

Adventures By January 9, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

Here in Thailand they still serve a lot of Chinese food, stuffed pastries and oddly enough, stuffed white bread with colourful filling – What’s inside, I do not know but I don’t want to try to find out. My friend likes them but I don’t dare to try them. I know the dangers of food colouring. Steamed buns are typically…

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 myΒ 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…

Zesty Pesto Kale Chips

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…

I’m still down in Mexico and making my own food because this is not the most vegan-friendly place in the world, but that’s okay because I am educating and inspiring my new Mexican family about why I eat the way I do and show them the interesting and delicious creations I make for myself daily that are packed full of…

I haven’t been posting quite as many food recipes because I’ve been travelling and unable to but yesterday I made a salad down in Guadalajara, Mexico and my dad and my new Mexican family and even my brother who generally does not like (to admit he likes) my healthy food went bonkers over it and when I came back from…

I had a crazy weekend performing with Diva Diverse in Sault Ste. Marie and I was so exhausted yesterday and felt extremely dehydrated for some reason so I was craving somethin juicy. Aside from eating 1/4 of a watermelon I made myself something nice and light and refreshing to eat. This was my little masterpiece. Super easy and according to…

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

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…

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,…
