When it comes to skin care, we think that washing with soap is the best option, but there is actually a better way to cleanse and nourish our skin for a healthy glow, softness,and optimal moisture/oil balance. Though I couldn't find any reliable studies, rumour has it with regular dry skin brushing every day for three months you might just see a reduction in cellulite.

It's time for our first sweet harvests of the season -- rhubarb is here and strawberries are not far behind. I get really excited when I see new seasonal produce in the market and whether I have a plan for it or not, I buy it. That is how I ended up with four giant stalks of rhubarb in my fridge.

Though lasagna itself is technically a one-potter, and we all love a good One Pot Wonder, there are a few steps here and it is a little labour intensive. The final result is, however, very much worth it.

We've all had that experience where we get in our cars to go somewhere and then suddenly find ourselves at our destination without any recollection of the path we took to get there. It's kind of the same thing when we sit down in front of the television with a bag of chips and suddenly the bag is empty.

Sometimes a gratitude practice comes easy, like when you're sipping kombucha margaritas beach side in a tropical paradise, or your kids decide to keep themselves busy and let you sleep in until the midday hour of 8 a.m. For most of us, though, a gratitude practice is anything but easy.

I'm confident you're familiar with dried figs, but fresh? They're sweet and juicy with that little bit of crunch from the seeds is a side benefit to the number of delicious health benefits. So what would happen if we took this pleasure food and lovingly coated it in one of the greatest aphrodisiacs, chocolate?

Vegetable prep is a key step in living and eating your healthiest way possible. It takes a little time up front, but makes meal times much quicker with way less clean-up. It also results in far less food waste and we love that, a lot!

Plastic wrap, plastic storage containers and plastic baggies of every shape and size line the shelves in our grocery stores -- in some cases, plastic food storage can take up half an aisle! I swear, plastic food containers are a scourge to our society. We can do better than plastic. Much better.

What we see all around us flashing in media headlines and on our Facebook feeds is dramatic fame and achievement with seemingly minimum effort. It's infiltrated our approach to just about everything -- from quick-fix diets to overnight success businesses.

Way back in the day, like most of the candy we enjoy today, there was some natural twist to it. Marshmallows were made from marshmallow root, root beer used actual roots and licorice was derived from licorice root.

The main differentiating factor between introverts and extroverts is where we gain our energy. Extroverts get it from being out in the world, socializing, stimulating that brain reward centre in big ways, and having those interactions. Introverts re-energize by being alone.

I began experimenting with some classic nutrient-packed ingredients and then did something I rarely do: I added a protein powder to the mix. The key was to make a fibre-rich, protein-rich and fat-rich recipe: the trifecta of a power snack. And so, I landed at a chocolate dipped, vanilla macaroon.

I'm a huge fan of green juice. You know, the kind made with cucumbers, kale, lemon juice, celery, maybe even a little apple for sweetness. It's quenching, refreshing and one of the few things I can ac...

This onion soup has an incredibly strong flavour, matching its nutritional power. The body will often tell you when it has had enough and so this soup is best enjoyed in small portions.

A cup of coffee once or twice a week for most people is no big deal. However, if you can't poop without that morning cup, or more so, can't even drag yourself through your day without your caffeine boost -- then we need to talk.

I was at my usual organic grocer, owned by a Korean family. I mentioned needing daikon for my kimchi and the women at the checkout were all excited that I was going to attempt this. I asked what their best tips were. They both giggled and told me their best tip was to buy some already made.

There is nothing better than fresh picked ingredients and there is nothing quite as special as the first wild foods that make themselves known after the snow has melted. And so, as its become an annual affair here -- this is my yearly wild leek love letter.

This was one of the first ever recipes I created for my blog, and it has since gone through numerous variations. I have been loving this bread with pretty much everything on it. It is great topped with a simple bruschetta mix with chopped heirloom tomatoes, fresh basil, some minced garlic, olive oil and sea salt.

As we are on the cusp of fresh greens popping up from the earth, I will say farewell to the wonderland of winter with this last hurrah with the root vegetables. I present to you a simple, but flavourful, colourful and delicious roasted root medley, which falls perfectly in line with all that makes this UnDiet Life so vibrant.

Some people think of the fall as cold and flu season, but I have news for you. As winter continues on, we're still in it. In fact, many of us may be best suited for Vitamin D supplements and a Vitamin...
