Welcome to NOURISHED. the blog! The place to be for healthy and easy to make gluten free and vegetarian recipes!
NOURISHED. is my little corner of the internet where I create healthy and easy to make gluten free and vegetarian recipes that focus on fresh and whole food ingredients. I am always trying to make the nutritious taste delicious and then share it with anyone who is looking to eat better, feel great and to get healthy with good (gluten free, plant-based) food and good nutrition!
NOURISHED. the blog (formerly it’s a nourishing thing) was launched in the summer of 2015 with the goal of spreading good gluten free and plant-based food and the good nutrition goes along with it to everyone. I have a simple, no nonsense approach to eating (READ: real, unprocessed food and never dieting… ever!) and I really believe that nutritious food can also delicious food. The recipes you find here will always be gluten free and vegetarian. This is simply because this is the way I like to eat and cook and I love making food that tastes good and that everyone can enjoy.
Other things I believe in? A balanced lifestyle loaded with fruits and veggies is key to a healthy life. Eating well makes you feel good in every physical, mental and emotional way possible. Homemade is always the best. Cooking should be fun and enjoyable, not stressful. And I believe in eating REAL and whole foods, which are foods that are more a product of nature rather than a product of industry.
The recipes I share will always be easy to make (trust me – if I can do it, you can do it!) using simple and real ingredients. I always try to suggest ways to adapt each recipe to better suit the ingredients you may have on hand and for those who need a little wiggle room every now and then.
Oh, Hey There!!
I’m Rebecca and this is my blog where I share my latest and most delicious kitchen creations. The recipes developed for and shared on NOURISHED. the blog are loaded with veggies, and are always gluten free and vegetarian. I also love putting a healthy twist (or healthifying, as I like to call it) on traditional homestyle dishes I ate as a kid, classic comfort foods, and desserts of all kinds.
I also believe life is not complete without a good breakfast every day, good desserts and the occasional glass of wine. I love salad and vegetables (I really, really do). Fresh, local produce is the best! I love the food network, and trashy reality TV of all sorts. I love cooking and testing out new recipes in my small apartment kitchen, which has very little counter space but I make it work. I love collecting and reading cookbooks. I am always on the hunt for new recipes with a healthy, yet delicious twist. I am always trying to make nutritious taste delicious! And don’t even get me started on how much I love coffee, chocolate, cheese and cookies…all in moderation, of course. But especially coffee – this girl loves a good cup of coffee.
I live in
Ottawa, Ontario Winnipeg, Manitoba Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario with my handsome and gluten-intolerant boyfriend fiance husband(!), Joshua, and our two cats. Joshua and I love getting outside and being active (when we are not watching Netflix, of course!) – our weekends are filled with bike rides, rounds of golf, walks around the local farmer’s market and lots of curling. I am currently studying to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and am loving every minute of learning about nutrition the holistic and natural way!
