Hi! welcome to my blog devoted to whole, healthy living.

I’ve always loved to bake. As a kid, I remember getting a Mrs. Fields Best Ever Cookie cookbook and shiny new baking sheets as a birthday gift – and I couldn’t have been happier. I reveled in coming up with new concoctions, stirring away in the kitchen and the excitement of a fresh batch of oatmeal raisin cookies coming out of the oven – chewy on the inside, golden on the outside.

Unlike my days as a youngster, today I use no added sugar in my recipes. After giving up refined sugars in January 2015, I’ve grown healthier and stronger — and so, too, has my love for baking.

I focus on whole, unprocessed foods and have a passion for creating delicious treats that are naturally sweetened.

I love country music, figure skating, reading non-fiction, yoga, tea, and hanging out with my husband (you can read about our wedding here).

Favourite meal: Breakfast. I could eat breakfast foods for every meal of the day! Oatmeal, smoothies, protein pancakes, avocado toast and eggs are all part of my rotation.

Favourite cuisine: Mexican. Fresh, delicious, simple and the options are endless.

Favourite destination: Anywhere with the ocean close by and good, fresh food. Take a look at some of my travel adventures to places like Niagara wineries, Tulum, Mexico, London, England and more!

Favourite colour: I think you’ll notice (if you haven’t already) that turquoise is a prominent element on my site – and it’s an evident colour in my daily life! It’s my signature colour and makes me so happy.
