Simple Spring Pear Cake

Lately I've been playing around with baking. I have a huge sweet tooth but also know well enough that sugar wreaks havoc on the body. I break out, get bloated and moody as hell. It's essentially like going through PMS every time I eat sweets. As a Holistic Nutritionist I try to find alternatives to refined sugary desserts to help lessen the negative impact they have on my body.

Broiled Grapefruit & Hazelnuts

Do you like desserts? Uh, duh. Do you like healthy desserts? Uh.....maybe? Well friends, this quick, sweet and healthy treat is my answer to the raging sweet tooth I on occasion battle. You too?  I know it's a struggle. I've been replacing fruits and natural sweets in place of more traditional (read: processed and full of refined sugars) treats for awhile now, and while sometimes nothing can truly replace a glorious donut or chocolate bar, the addition of these natural sweet snacks has actually lessened my sugar cravings.

Dumpling Squash & Baked Eggs

Well my friends, the season of the squash continues on in my kitchen. I currently have no less than 3 different varieties of the veg sitting on my counter at this very moment. But I'm not complaining, it's simply one of the "side effects" of trying to eat mainly local produce..in Canada..in the fall/winter.
