Quick and Easy Cauliflower Rice

So often we prepare particular foods simply because it's a habit or we feel as though we would be missing something if they weren't on our plate (think starchy carbohydrates: pasta, rice, bread, potatoes, etc.) They can be filler foods that aren't overly nutrient dense but we eat them regularly anyway because they are easy to prepare and require minimal thought. What if I told you that you could swap out rice occasionally…

I hate to toot my own horn... but I must say, these are very likely the BEST whole food treat I've ever made! It took 3 batches to get it perfect (and the taste testing process was tough) but I think it is finally ready to be shared (oh the things I do for you guys)!

Who doesn't love the combination of peanut butter, banana and chocolate? These muffins are extremely simple and delicious. They are a great mix of healthy ingredients with a touch of sweet making them the perfect treat for people of all ages!  So many of my clients are sensitive to gluten and/or dairy meaning they typically avoid muffins at all costs. However, this recipe is 100% gluten and dairy free making…

These ribs have got to be the BEST ribs I've ever made - they fall off the bone and are absolutely delicious! One of the greatest things about this recipe is that it contains NO store bought BBQ sauce or ketchup (which we all know - many brands contain a lot of added sugar or even worse - high fructose corn syrup). Throw these in your slow cooker this weekend -…

How To Increase Energy Levels And Stabilize Your Mood Using Food

  Stable blood sugar levels are important for everyone, not just people with diabetes. When our blood sugar levels are stable, we have stable energy, stable moods and our hunger remains under control. We’ve all had that feeling before, we have a sugary treat and feel a burst of energy but then before we know it we are feeling tired, hungry or irritable (sometimes all three at once – yikes!)…

Food as Medicine: Beat Stress with Nutrients

Stress affects our physical and mental health in many different ways. It impacts our ability to sleep, properly digest our food, reduces immune function and affects our mood. You may think to yourself, “I’m not stressed” – however, we are now exposed to low-grade stressors all of the time – think: working a full-time job, taking care of children and trying our best to be a great friend, wife, girlfriend,…

Makeover Monday: Taco Seasoning

Tacos were my absolute favourite food growing up. However, it wasn't until I had finished 5 years of nutrition schooling/interning that I had taken the time to read the back of that little package. After seeing such a huge list of unnecessary ingredients, such as "corn maltodextrin", "sugar", "caramel colour", "hydrolyzed soya and corn protein" (in taco seasoning, really?) the quest for finding a delicious taco seasoning recipe was on.…

This delicious pork dish can be thrown into the slow cooker in the evening and ready to be packed in your lunch the next morning. The sweetness from the peppers and maple syrup create the perfect mixture of flavours. Throw these ingredients in the crock pot and don't worry about dirtying too many dishes or waiting hours for it to be ready. Put everything together Sunday evening and have lunches prepared…
