super-simple chia pudding

One of the biggest adjustments to being a working mom has been that I’ve had to get my swims in before work a few times a week or they don’t get done. I used to swim on my lunch hour, but the pool near my office is closed for renovations, and pool renovations take a…

asparagus + gruyère strata

I have a vague memory of asparagus growing in my parents’ back yard in Vancouver. Not a lot of it, just a handful of spindly stalks poking up each spring in the raised garden bed beside the garage. Asparagus is a perennial crop, so I’m sure it was planted at some point in ancient history…

swiss chard and gruyere strata

A savoury and comforting make-ahead dish with layers of whole grain bread, swiss chard, and gruyere cheese baked in an eggy custard. Somehow the equinox slipped past me this year. Maybe because the weather in Stockholm has been somewhat autumny for a while now. Or maybe because I’ve had other things on my mind. But…

kvarg and quinoa protein pots

People keep asking me how I’m doing these days, and the answer is this: I’m hungry. I’m hungry All. The. Time. Seriously, from the moment I wake up until about 3pm, I’m eating every 60 – 90 minutes. And when I eat it goes something like this: feeling full –> full –> full –> full…

Thick green smoothie bowls with blueberry and banana topped with toasted buckwheat, extra berries, and a sprinkling of chia seeds.

A luscious black rice pudding made with coconut milk and palm sugar. Vegan and gluten free, this is a traditional Indonesian breakfast. We spent a few days in Ubud, Bali, in December.

make and freeze breakfast bars

I learned something shocking recently. Not everyone loves overnight oats as much as I do. I know. It’s crazy, right? For one thing, the texture, which I find magically creamy and delicious, is not for everyone. Also, being the winter and all, not everyone is into the idea of a cold breakfast. And perhaps most…

warm oatmeal with pear, ginger, and cardamom

Over the years I’ve transitioned from a first-thing-in-the-morning breakfast eater to a some-time-before lunch breakfast eater. And by ‘lunch’ I mean the hour that I step away from my desk to get a bit of exercise. Because I pack my breakfast with me to work, I’m still relying mostly on smoothies, which I pack in…
