A new year, a new (soaked) muffin

Happy new year! We’re almost a week into 2014, but it’s still the time of year when everyone thinks about improvement, bettering, growth, change. Gyms are filled to capacity, juicers are pulled out and dusted off, and Christmas cookies and New Year’s Eve fried appetizers are set aside in preference of salads and lentils. My inboxes … Continue reading

My favourite thing (this week): Coconut Cream Oatmeal

I have always loved breakfast foods. Especially baked ones, made with white flour. Muffin, pancake, toast, streudle: all these words sound like delicious comfort to me. So last year when I eliminated gluten from my diet, I didn’t know quite what I was going to do for breakfast. Eggs seemed the obvious choice, but I was … Continue reading
