Carrot Cake Smoothie

Also known as the “Bunny Smoothie” back in our Kindfood days. We always make our own fresh carrot and ginger juice – it’s so easy. Commercially prepared juices are pasteurized, which causes so much nutrient loss.  With the cinnamon and banana, this smoothie tastes like that classic dessert we can’t resist! Active time: 5 minutes […]

Grandma’s Apple Crumble

Let’s admit that most people think the topping is the best part of a fruit crumble. The crunchy, sweet oat nuggets are really “the icing on the cake”, right? It may surprise you to learn that you get better results with coconut oil than with the butter our grandmas used.  Coconut oil makes for a […]

Love N’ Peas Muffins

  We developed this muffin at Kindfood as a lunch special for kids. The inspiration came from a T-shirt slogan Kelly saw and loved in California. Moms would buy these for their kids’ lunches and snacks, knowing they would get something fun, nutritious and yummy. And they’re not just for kids, this is a perfect […]

Blueberry Oat Muffins

Who doesn’t love blueberry muffins? Well, these tasty little guys are one of our favorites at home and in the Bake Shoppe. It’s important to use wild blueberries for these. In fact, you should choose wild blueberries whenever possible because they have more than double the antioxidants of commercially farmed blueberries and more flavor. Go […]

Vanilla Almond Milk

This is such a simple, useful recipe and making your own almond milk means you can control the ingredients. If you love vanilla, use more! We like Himalayan sea salt but you can choose whatever high quality sea salt you prefer. The cinnamon is comforting and will help your digestion. Active time: 10 minutes Total […]

Kelly Childs' pumpkin pie scones and smoothie

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

PUMPKIN Anyone? LOL!! This is my favourite food. It is a ‘food group’ all on its own. I made this smoothie for breakfast yesterday morning and totally fell head over heels.

roasted corn soup by Kelly Childs

Sweet Roasted Corn and Tempeh Soup

Has our Summer flown by that quickly? I think we need to take advantage of the last couple of weeks of it and get all the beautiful produce while we can at the local farmer markets and in particular,  their freshly harvested cobs of corn. Corn on the cob!! Who doesn’t love this? Especially corn on […]
