Recipes

All of my recipes are created to be quick, healthy, delicious and vegan (meaning they use no animal foods). They are meat-free, fish-free, dairy-free, and egg-free.

Most are also gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, or can easily be made so with some simple swaps. They are free of refined sugars, and most don't use any added sweeteners so many are suitable for diabetics.

I also sometimes share recipes from other people, and I am always conscious of choosing a recipe that is as healthy and vegan as I would make myself.

If you feel overwhelmed by recipes, you should pick up my online meal plan so that I can show you how to put recipes together into a balanced and nutritious eating plan.

High-Protein Hemp Veggie Burger Recipe *Video

An easy veggie burger recipe that's packed with protein

I had a friend's son over for a day job shadowing me, since he's interested in healthy eating and cooking. Since he's also into athletics, I thought I'd show him how to make an easy veggie burger that's high in protein.

These veggie burgers are based on toasted buckwheat (kasha), and have a boost of hemp protein. They'd also be fantastic with hemp hearts or ground nuts instead.

Vegan Fish Cakes On Hot Cross Buns + Pirate Kite Flying For Good Friday

Vegan fish cakes and kite flying for Good Friday

Good Friday in Bermuda involves brunch of fish cakes on hot cross buns and flying homemade kites at the beach. I decided I had to take part in both, and was thrilled to hear of a local caterer offering vegan fish cakes and hot cross buns through the local health food store!

These were amazingly tasty vegan patties. I've never had an actual fish cake before, but I had my seafood-eating friends sample a taste and they said it was quite close in texture.

Have you ever tried ginger in a smoothie? It's fantastic - my favorite is with blueberries.

The combo of blueberries and ginger is fantastic - if you've never tried it, you totally should.

I also love putting fresh basil in this combo, but don't have any at the moment... I highly recommend it though, so if you have some give it a try!
