About Unsweetened Caroline

Hi, I’m Caroline! A french registered dietitian living in the Okanagan region of British-Columbia. Here, I share the wholesome vegan and vegetarian recipes that I enjoy at home. All the treats you’ll find here are sweetened with fruits and filled with nutritious ingredients. In addition to being plant-based, many of my recipes can be made gluten-free and allergy-friendly. I include ingredient substitutions when possible to help you choose the best recipes for your needs.

I also love to share our adventures in beautiful British Columbia or around the world!

Finally, you can also find me over at Nourished by Caroline, where I offer nutrition counselling in Kelowna.

About Unsweetened Caroline

Why Fruit-Sweetened?

When I started my blog, I was avoiding added sugars. Why? Because I had what felt like uncontrollable sugar cravings. I was told by an eating disorder psychologist to stop eating added sugar because I had an addiction. So I did.

I avoided large amounts of added sugar for a few years before I started doubting his advice. To this day, I’m not sure I agree with him. The dietitian in me knew I would never tell my patients to avoid added sugar completely, so why was I listening to him?

Things have changed since then. I’ve worked on my relationship with food through intuitive eating and I now enjoy all foods (other than meat for environmental and ethical reasons). Nevertheless, I fell in love with cooking nutritious recipes.

So here, I share the recipes I enjoy at home! Anything from simple vegan and vegetarian meals to wholesome desserts (I do enjoy “real” treats too).

That’s what I want to share with you. I want to inspire you to live a life that feels good to you. I want to inspire you to work on your relationship with food, without trying to eat “perfectly”. Most of all, I want to share nutritious recipes that will make you fall in love with food and cooking, all over again. Recipes that will feed your body and soul.

    I’m so graceful I found your blog and met you. You really point out for good how much people need help yet how little our society aims to prevent rather than repairing the damaged afterwards. I find your blog so rich and inspiring and I love the minimalism you chose for designing it! Your story is motivating too, and you take great pictures! I’ll definitely try new recipes, thank you for all you’re offering! @gloria.uderzo on Instagram

      I’m so happy you found it! I’m not on YouTube yet. My priority is my internship at the moment, but it’s a project I would love to start after. 🙂 I hope you’ll enjoy the recipes and have a great weekend!
