Lunar Noodling – Heirloom Apple/Butternut Pasta & Sunflower Seed Butter Sauce

Happy Lunar New Year! This time of year marks that particular moment when many of us (myself included) choose to observe onset of a new full calendar reset – and in this case the Year of The Monkey. In honour of kindred primates worldwide, this seems more than an appropriate time to celebrate with the best possible food to fuel primates of all species (including humans): FRUIT!   As it seems that ritual accompanies the onset of each new year, symbolism always plays an integral role in the way many of us are...

Corned Beetroot

Erm… WHAT and cabbage?   Strange as it may sound, I honestly had no idea what “corned beef” was, or how such a thing was made, until just a few short weeks ago. I suppose it’s possible that some morbid curiosity at the name was what led me to sit still for long enough to find out… Cheers for the cringes, Food Network! 😛 Perhaps that’s only to be expected from someone who never really engaged in consumption of such things (though I can hardly believe that my 25th...

This is an absolutely ideal time of year for a thorough cleanout of body as well as environment, and what better way to enjoy participation in such than enjoyment of cleansing foods made with fresh seasonal...

Healing, Compassion, Evolution, & Rediscovering Oats

Happy Halloween! Today also marks the three year anniversary of the cycling accident in Los Angeles which completely shattered my right knee, placing me in a wheelchair for over a year and preventing me from returning home to my very busy life in New York City. As such, I now think of this time as my “rebirthday” since my entire existence was forever changed on that day and I was bound to begin all over again from virtually naught. During the initial time of the accident, I was absolutely terrified of...

Raw Cacao Crunch Bars

Happy Spring! I know it’s been ages, and that is mainly because I’ve been on hiatus. Having lived quite simply through the Winter, these days I eat mostly simple fruits and home fermentations whilst focusing my energy on coursework, counselling, and a few other projects. That said, it became rather imperative for me to make a point of arranging something extra special for my Vernal Equinox blog post (you deserve it, and I am so grateful), despite still living in a sort of Luddite bliss with neither a...

Spicy Nori Cracker Tostadas

  This is it! My third and final installment in this tribute series to celebrate harvest season, new moon in Libra, Mum’s appearance day, and also the rapidly approaching two year anniversary of one of my most treasured friendships. Continuing along the bright path of sunflowers & sea vegetables, this post shall incorporate a third and vitally essential element in this ongoing succession of social media & student request fulfillments for simple savoury recipes: Avocados. If you have not done so...
