Quinoa Pizza Balls

It was my first visit to this holistic practitioner, and I knew from the outset it was the place for me. Shutting out the mid-day hubbub of Toronto’s Yonge Street behind me, I swung open the heavy oak door; inside, there was a comfortable hush in the air, like […]

Olive-Quinoa Salad with Olive Shortbreads (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan)

[Okra pods, in the raw]

I have a confession to make. I haven’t told you all about this yet because, quite frankly, I was afraid you’d reject me. Move that cursor elsewhere, and click. At best, roll your eyes. Maybe snort in disgust. Maybe gag, […]
