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.
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.
