Kind Living Recipes

We enjoyed these healthy treats at our most recent workshop. They're super quick to make and can really satisfy your sweet tooth (or, in my case, teeth!). You can easily adapt this recipe to be dairy, nut, gluten and sugar free. We made two versions for...

For you ice cream lovers out there, you won't believe how easy and delicious this is! It only has 3 ingredients and it's dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, caffeine-free, AND it doesn't have those nasty stabilizers and foaming agents found in most commercial frozen treats. After recently indulging...

There are many things to love about summer, and close to the top of the list for me are juicy beefsteak tomatoes and fragrant basil - heavenly! This salad is a breeze to make and quite pretty - it's great for entertaining. The richness of avocado...

You may already be familiar with the exceptional health benefits of turmeric, especially its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. However, if you're anything like me, and have used fresh turmeric root, you've ended up with incredibly yellowed fingernails. That stuff stains! Isn't nature so interesting? Natural...

I have people to thank for this recipe. First, I was inspired by a recipe Tara O'Brady posted in last Saturday's Globe and Mail. I loved the idea of roasted sweet potato, kale and feta. I wanted to make it less of a salad and...

So, it started with organic strawberries. I get excited when I happen upon organic strawberries. Berries tend to be heavily sprayed with chemicals and can have a heavy pesticide residue. My excitement dipped a bit when I got home, however. Upon closer inspection, the berries...

A popular item we carry in the boutique is liquid chlorophyll. Typically derived from alfalfa, chlorophyll added to water is an "easy upgrade". Chlorophyll is very similar in composition to our own haemogloblin, which is why it's often considered a blood builder. It's also rich...

As we have been discussing in the last several newsletters, I have been swapping out cashews in various vegan recipes and using sunflower or pumpkin seeds instead. I am doing this for ethical, environmental, economic and allergy reasons. We have enjoyed the recipes immensely, and...

In my quest to incorporate more local (and more economical) foods in our diet, and also eat delicious food, I've been experimenting with fresh salads. This salad to me tastes like spring (if we ever get spring). I love the fresh combination of flavours and...

This recipe was inspired by Coco Morante's book Vegan Instant Pot. There's a yummy quinoa recipe calling for a lime cilantro dressing. Since I didn't have any cilantro, I decided to use my go-to Ginger Garlic Tamari Dressing instead. I also didn't have most of the...

While I certainly don't miss eating meat, there are a few "comfort food" dishes that I miss. One of them is a really good meatloaf. Earlier this week it was damp and cold and I just couldn't warm up. The thought of a hearty, dense...

If there's a Thai salad on the menu at a restaurant, there's a good chance I'll order it. I love the variety and texture of vegetables, and I love a dressing with toasted sesame oil. Recently, I tried to replicate a recipe going on memory, and,...
