Press, Articles, Interviews & Appearances

I've been honored to have spoken at some wonderful festivals and had my work, as healthy vegan recipes and healthy eating articles, featured on some wonderful websites that I admire very much.

Conference Speaker:

BlogHer Food 2013: I spoke with my good friend and amazing vegan chef and fitness coach Christy Morgan in a Video Bootcamp for food bloggers. We went through our best tips and tricks from our years of experience creating videos.


Toronto Vegetarian Festival 2013: I was thrilled to connect with so many people in my session at this popular Canadian festival speaking about easy, fun and healthy meal planning.


Diabetes Smart Symposium: This was an online conference coordinated by Learn It Live, an online learning platform. I was honored to be one of 60 expert speakers, and my session on Preventing blood sugar spikes: Plan a day of vegan meals had one of the highest sign up and attendance rates in the conference.


Book Contributor:

Plant-Powered Families, by Dreena Burton: This is Dreena's 5th cookbook, and it is amazing! It's full of her hard-earned tips and well-tested recipes for feeding children healthy whole plant foods. There are over 100 recipes, plus meal plans at the back, along with my contribution of important nutritional information for children and families.


Nutrition CHAMPS, by Jill Nussinow: This is an amazing collection of healthy recipes, by some of my favorite vegan cookbook authors and I was honored to be asked to contribute. Inside, you'll find my Rutabaga 'Noodles' with Lemon Balsamic Tahini Sauce, Ginger Pineapple Pudding, Parsley Pistachio Lime Pesto and Black Bean Peanut Butter Brownies.


Fresh, Flavorful, Festive: Mango Recipes Fit For A Fete, by The National Mango Board: Those of you who know me know that I'm a total mango addict, so when the Mango Board asked me to contribute a recipe to their cookbook I thought I had been called to my destiny. I contributed a Mango Dragon Roll (yes, mango sushi) - with a spiced chocolate drizzle and toasted coconut. Divine. The link will take you to a free ebook, which is not vegan but has some lovely vegan recipes in there.
