Fermentation workshop in Montreal

Fermentation workshop in Montreal

We’ve been making our own fermented foods for years. I started with yogurt and made it weekly for a very long time. Kombucha is a huge favourite around here. Water kefir was never popular but milk kefir was. We don’t really eat dairy these days, so I started looking for other types of ferments that […]

Your kid on a food strike? Try this

Your kid on a food strike? Try this

Babe was going through some things. Something. No idea what. 4.5 and she was feeling all the things. Tantrums, which had seemed to have disappeared, returned with a vengeance. And started to become pickier with food. I guess she’s still going through some of these things, but the picky eating, we “fixed.” As a couple, […]

Mama’s Asiatique veggie/bean soup with Paleo rolls

This veggie soup came together so quickly and the entire family had more than one bowl. I “jammed it,” as we say, so please use this recipe as a guideline and get creative. Before even chopping the veggies I prepared the Paleo dinner rolls with tapioca starch and coconut flour. Easy, peasey, gluten-free. Ingredients 8 […]

Essentials Whole Health Program review and GIVEAWAY!

These last couple months have been a whirlwind on the food front.  I examined veganism. I flirted with paleo. It was a bit of an existential crisis. My vegan and vegetarian friends were sure I’d gone off the deep end while my Paleo friends were glad I’d finally come to my senses. Where am I […]

Baby purees are like fax machines

Baby purees are like fax machines

Guest Post by Jessica Coll I’m a registered dietitian and learned about introducing complementary foods to  babies while I was in school. I was told to start with pureed foods then experiment with chunks as they get older. After a lot of research and giving birth to my own child, I decided to ditch the […]

Homemade playdough with natural food colouring

Playdough! It never gets old. Well it does, and then you need to throw it in the compost and start a fresh batch, but what I mean is Babe never tires of playing with it! She’s a mixer. We spend so much time deciding what colours to make and they look lovely, and then she […]
