SOBO restaurant in Tofino is on my top 5 list of favourite restaurants and we’ve eaten many a meal there, gracefully welcomed despite camping attire and a gaggle of children. As much as I always want to try something new, I also have to have a bowl Chef Lisa’s chowder—the best I’ve ever eaten. I […]

No Sugar Squash Apple Muffins

These moist muffins are packed with fibre from whole grains, squash, apples and pecans. Although they don’t have any refined sugar, they do have a few tablespoons of molasses which provides some sweetness as well as minerals like calcium and iron.

Despite everything we’ve faced in 2020, we are so fortunate that our food supply has remained intact. And that is thanks to […]
