Dear Joyous Readers,

Mama's day is this Sunday which is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate your Mom and let her know how much you love and appreciate her. One of the best ways to show your love is with a homemade gift!

To help you out I've compiled some of my favourite recipes from my book (which is NOW available in the U.S.!) and then my blog that I just know your mama will LOVE! First up are the recipes from my book and then scroll all the way down for recipes from my blog.


Sangria Kombucha Page 166

Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage. Combined with your favourite red wine and chopped fruit it's a match made in joyous heaven! It's the perfect accompaniment to brunch, lunch or dinner.

Apricot Oat Granola Muffins Page 139

Make these for mama and they will become a favourite! They are basically like a granola cup. Want to make these gluten-free? Simply omit the wheat germ and swap in with chia seeds! Surprise your mom on Sunday morning with these delightful muffins.

Apple Walnut Sprouted French Toast page 144

The perfect brunch for mom! This recipe is wonderfully flavourful and one of my favourite brunch recipes. It is a total joyous comfort food. Want to make these gluten-free? Just swap in with GF bread, but I personally love using Ezikiel's Cinnamon and Raisin breast. Top it with the best quality dark maple syrup you can find.

Chilled Cucumber Avocado Soup Page 182

Make your mama lunch -- this chilled soup goes perfectly with the raw sunshine wraps. This is truly a nourishing, hydrating and beautifying meal. Plus it's super quick and very easy to make.

 Raw Sunshine Wraps Page 236

The best part of these raw wraps is the Thai-inspired almond sauce! Crunchy and yummy these wraps can be a main meal or served as an appetizer. I suggest you make them for your mama with the cucumber avocado soup.

Carrot Cake Balls Pages 258

One of my all-time favourite desserts is carrot cake. I created these gems as a healthier version of carrot cake. They are raw, gluten-free, dairy-free and perfect for your mama! You can watch the recipe video here. I also created a carrot cake square when I had leftovers of the balls!


 Chopped Kale & Beet Salad

Your mama will love the vibrant colours and fresh flavours in this crunchy detoxifying salad. The dates soften the bitterness of the kale. This recipe is sure to delight your mama's taste buds. Recipe here. This salad will go wonderfully well with this Quinoa Lentil Curry Soup. It is a joyous health reader fave so it's tried, tested and true.

Orange Mint Baked Salmon

Show your mama some love by making her dinner! Salmon is a wonderful source of heart-healthy omega 3 fatty acids. Combined with the antioxidants in the spinach this recipe has incredible nutrient-synergy!

Gluten-free Quinoa Cookies

This recipe was created by my mom. So I know they are mom-approved! Chewy and soft you and your mom will love these gluten-free gems. A perfect dessert after the kale salad and soup.

Apple Tart with Cashew Maple Cream

This recipe sounds fancy but it's incredibly easy to make. However, no one needs to know how easy it was to create. As long as you put love and good intention into every you create that's all that matters. Perfect for the mamas who have gluten and dairy intolerance. This is one of my fave desserts, next to carrot cake :)

Have a joyous mama's day!
