Gluten Free Holiday Stuffing (Inspired By Mom)

Stuffing has forever been my favourite part of any holiday meal. My mom used to make the best stuffing with sausage AND bacon, making it hearty, salty, filling, and absolutely perfect in all ways possible. We both loved stuffing so much, that sometimes she would make it on its own as a side dish during the week! We even ate it as a meal on its own sometimes haha When my mom was diagnosed with celiac disease, she missed out on a lot of the food we used to enjoy together. It took us a few years to figure it out, but once we discovered that the secret to the perfect gluten free stuffing was using bagels instead of bread,...

Dairy Free Eggnog (with a vegan option!)

 It truly is the most wonderful time of year... thanks to eggnog! Here at the Nourished By Heirloom headquarters, we seriously LOOOOOVE the nog. Every year around the Christmas holiday we make it from scratch because it's just so easy, and we always make it dairy free. The combination of coconut milk with another creamy plant based milk like cashew or oat gives it the perfect texture while not making it taste coconut-y. We felt like making our dairy free recipe even better this year, so we decided to add the Golden Hour superfood tonic to it and OH MY SWEET GOODNESS was it the best decision ever. Why not add a bit of anti-inflammatory properties and support cognitive function...

Anti-Inflammatory Candied Spiced Nuts

Candied nuts are a fave for us. We like having them in the pantry all throughout the year, but they make for a fantastic snack during cocktail hour at holiday events or something to serve on charcuterie boards, or as a garnish on salads! This recipe features our Taco culinary seasoning, showcasing fun and tasty ways you can use this seasoning in more than just tacos! The anti-inflammatory properties in these nuts come from the omega 3 fatty acids in the walnuts and chia seeds. A diet high in omega 3's is important to support joint health and our nervous system. They are such a tasty and healthy treat, making this recipe an absolute must try! Ingredients: 1/4 cup maple...

Golden Hour Latte aka A Hug In A Cup

 We absolutely love this Golden Hour latte, and we often refer to it as a "hug in a cup".  This tonic is inspired by the traditional beverage originating in India called golden milk or haldi doodh. Traditional golden milk is a combination of turmeric, ginger and cinnamon and has its roots in Ayurvedic medicine. This warm beverage is known for being high in antioxidants and its ability to reduce inflammation. We wanted to honour the traditional ingredients used in this nourishing drink, while adding our own "Heirloom" flare on it; and that's how our Golden Hour superfood tonic was created! We added a few extra ingredients to elevate this turmeric and ginger mixture by adding lucuma (a fruit native to...
