Super Easy Tomato Sauce


The other night I was super rushed for time. I worked late and it seemed that supper time snuck up on me. We had activities to rush to after supper (#momlife, right?), so as soon as I got the kids from school it was time to start supper. If you work and do ANYTHING ELSE in life, you’ve had these…

Deliciously Ella’s Oat Bars


As you know, I have to stay gluten-free. Most of the time I just troll the internet for gluten-free recipes that may or may not work. I rarely buy cookbooks, but when I saw the cookbook “Deliciously Ella” in the discount section at Chapters, I knew I had to have it! I recognized her name from her blog, which I…

How to Lose Weight: Without Dieting or Extra Exercise.


My gut was always healthy as a kid. I could eat anything, and did. Since my bout with severe food poisoning a couple of years ago, I have suffered from destroyed villi and a severe gluten intolerance. (You can read about the history of that here , where I optimistically predict 6 months gluten-free). After awhile of being gluten-free, I started to…

Exploring Gut Health


I will never take my health for granted again. I used to eat whatever I wanted, at any time of day, without a second thought. Now, I have a severe gluten-intolerance and I will never take my health for granted again. A couple of years ago, on my husband’s birthday, we went out for Vietnamese. I used the bathroom as…

Mother’s Day Weekend AND My Sixth Wedding Anniversary


I hope all of you momma’s had an enormously good Mother’s Day Weekend. I spent a lot of it wondering how the mothers from Fort McMurray were holding up, and if the Syrian refugee mothers would be celebrated somehow. Let’s keep them in our thoughts. I donated to both causes this weekend, not sure how I could handle such a…

Stop Overthinking Food.


The title is a message to myself. I have decided that half of my issues are over-thinking food. Panicking about whether I am eating right is tying my stomach up in knots, making it impossible to digest. Could I eat more fermented foods? Sure. Could I cut out alcohol completely, instead of the 3-5 glasses a month I consume? Sure.…

Green Tea Vs Coffee


  I have been trying something new. I am hopelessly addicted to coffee but I have been trying to cut down, as I have a very sensitive system. Thank goodness for green tea! I have cut down my caffeine consumption to two cups in the morning, and the occasional third cup in the afternoon before 2pm. I try anyway. This…

In Honour of Japan


I went on a ramble about Japan yesterday! And guess what Husband found in the back of the cupboard? A western version of a Japanese staple! It was given to me by one of my fave people on Earth and I meant to open it but then forgot. I have been snacking on it all day! So good.   It’s…

Good News at the Doctor!


Yesterday was a big day for me. Josh left for work really early and came back just after lunch so that I could go to my physical and get my test results at the doctor. I anxiously waited in the waiting room, literally sweating: AND IT WAS GOOD NEWS. Two ultrasounds and a bunch of blood tests later and we…

One Healthy Lunch


I am currently being forced to eat gluten so that my doctor can test me for Celiac disease. I eat it at breakfast and go for healthier, as-gluten-free-as-possible, delicious options through out the rest of the day. Today I wanted something that reminded me of a sandwich- but  without the bread. I didn’t come up with a new idea really,…
