winter citrus breakfast salad with quinoa and toasted walnuts

Tangy grapefruit and blood oranges are paired with peppery arugula, tiny pearls of quinoa, creamy avocado, and crunchy walnuts for an easy, healthy, and delicious breakfast salad. Winter, it seems, is a time of year many of which many of us would rather sped by, transporting us forward to longer days and balmier weather. I,…

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…

kamut and zucchini fritters

It always takes me a bit of time to shake off my vacation. Or maybe it’s shimmying back into work life that takes a bit of effort. Whatever it is, it’s nice to be getting back into a bit of a routine. Part of our routine, for now, is heading to the farmer’s market on…

peaches and cream muffins

I don’t know about you guys, but I am clinging to this summer like my life depends on it. This time of year seems fleeting and fragile, and I want to hold on to it for as long as possible. Peaches are one of my favourite summer fruits. I believe their lusciousness and fragility warrants…

meze bowl

Sometimes I have so much going on at once I feel like I’m failing at everything. Other times I feel pretty on top of the game. Mostly it’s somewhere in the middle. I’m terrible at getting out of bed in the morning. I’m pretty good at scheduling exercise into my day. I rush out the…

Heather’s Hallelujah Bowl

Hello friends! Happy new year! If you follow me on instagram, you’re probably aware that I spent the holidays hanging around a hospital. My mom had a fairly major reconstructive surgery on her spine just before Christmas, so I flew to Vancouver to be with my family during that time. I packed all kinds of…

kale and butternut squash salad

Yesterday morning I was enjoying a champion breakfast of tea, cold pizza, and a backlog of low-quality advent calendar chocolates, when it occurred to me how unbelievably close to Christmas we are. Between a run of epic thanksgiving dinners thrown by my American expat friends, the company Christmas party, festive drinks happenings, and holiday potlucks,…

brown rice sushi bowl

Today I’m be finishing my last day of work before the summer holidays, typing furiously on my laptop while sitting on a train speeding towards the airport. Talk about down to the wire! Then just a hop, a skip, and a jump (read: 17 hours in transit) and I’ll be back in Vancouver for a…

Moroccan carrot and chickpea salad

A little while ago, Paul went on a holiday to Morocco. He went by himself, on a solo holiday, a ‘Pauliday’ if you will. We’re very different vacationers, he and I. I’m more of a lie-on-beach-with-book kind of a vacationer, and he’s a very activity driven vacationer. When you’ve lived with someone for nearly 10…

multigrain edamame salad

There are times when you should leave well enough alone and times you shouldn’t. I’ve been contemplating that a lot now that I’m into the second course of my program and have been well reminded of that constant state of anxiety that comes with being a student. There is always something I should be doing…

barley salad with charred corn and tomatoes

I’m sneaking in a couple of late summer recipes before switching over to apples and squash and cold weather comfort food. There is still corn at my local farmer’s market, and plenty of tomatoes too. I imagine if I can find late summer produce in a cold, northern country where there were only SIX days…

carrot quinoa salad

This summer I have had the great privilege, twice, of spending time with groups of people who habitually spend their summers together. Although on opposite sides of the globe, there were some commonalities: lazy afternoons on the beach, friends, family, laughter, and shared meals. The first, in a little beach town in the south of Sweden, was a…

quinoa crusted mini quiches

I’ve had grain salads on the brain lately, and I’ve been trying to come up with a jazzy new quinoa salad to share with you all. Greek style quinoa salad? Quinoa salad with grilled veggies? Quinoa fruit salad for breakfast? I dunno, it isn’t coming to me. But! While I was trying to brainstorm quinoa…
