Wellness Weekend, January 26-30, 2012

Isn’t it great how the days are getting longer these days (well, over here in the northern hemisphere, anyway)?.

To me, the only saving grace when it’s the middle of winter is that I get to bask in the sunshine for a few minutes longer each day. Well, sunshine–plus all of your […]


Flash in the Pan: Quick Creamy Caesar Dressing (Dairy Free, Egg Free, Grain Free, Sugar Free, Anti-Candida)

[Sometimes, you just want a dish that’s quick and easy–no fuss. I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly or else is so simple to make that no recipe is required. Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.” (For other FitP recipes, see “Categories” at […]


Wellness Weekend January 19-23, 2011

Brrr! Winter has finally hit with its full force in Toronto. I won’t tell you what I said when I first looked outside and saw the snow (hint: it wasn’t “Oh, joy!”).

Well, at least I had all your fabulous recipes from last week to console me! It was the biggest Wellness Weekend […]


Low Fat Cinnamon Walnut Loaf (Xanthan-free) for New Year, New You!

Pretty much anyone who knows me from this blog (or anywhere else) knows that I don’t consume refined sugar. In fact, since I started the anti-candida diet in March, 2009, I’ve abstained from almost all sweeteners, refined or otherwise. (I’ve also abstained from about 1,182 other foods that are verboten on […]


Go Ahead, Indulge: Baked Millet-Squash Porridge

[How to indulge on a Sunday morning.]

Recently, a friend emailed me a link to this interview with Bel Kaufman (author of the legendary novel Up the Down Staircase). What struck me most about Kaufman (apart from the fact that she’s still vibrant and joking at 100), was her […]


Wellness Weekend, January 12-16, 2012

Hi Everyone! So, how are those resolutions coming along? 😉

I decided a long time ago that I was no longer going to write out New Year’s resolutions, only to break them a week or two into the new year. This year, I’ve been happily following a whole foods detox diet (today is […]


Fava Bean Balls with Cranberry-Tomato Chutney

My, it feels as if it’s been a while since I’ve posted something new! Here at the DDD household, 2012 is off to a fairly slow start. I had fully intended to post this recipe last week, but was sidelined by a wiley sinus infection that has had me drinking ginger tea, […]


Wellness Weekend, January 5-9, 2012

Well, hellooooo, New Year! It’s the first full week of 2012, and before I get to anything else, let me start this post by announcing a giveaway winner! (Every year should start with prizes, don’t you think?).

As I mentioned last time, I’ve decided to clear my diet of some of the […]


Looking Back on 2011: It Was the Best of Times, It Was the Not-So-Best of Times*

*Or, a Tale of Two Rickis

*Or, How About a Dickens Reference Other Than A Christmas Carol for a Change?

[“Happy New Year, Mum! A saner approach to 2012 sounds good to me, too. Oh, and kudos on that atypical Dickens reference!”]

Happy 2012, everyone! Hope you […]
