One of my favorite foods is salad!  Salad can be made of anything; fruit, nuts, mixed greens, protein, cheese you name it – put it all together in just the right way and you’ve got a salad.

I absolutely love this mango salad – it’s simplicity is mind boggling especially when I think about how versatile it […]

LENTIL, WALNUT, QUINOA BURGERS

This lovely dinner is a Lentil, walnut, quinoa burger, with fresh homemade roasted garlic hummos (I’ll post that recipe shortly) and sliced avocado, roasted asparagus, and my favorite simple chunky fresh raw salad with white wine vinaigrette.  SO simple SO GOOD!

During my journey of health and fitness I’ve played with my diet and tweeked it […]

THE IMPORTANCE OF MAGNESIUM

THE IMPORTANCE OF MAGNESIUM
So let me start by saying I’m not a Medical professional.  Being a chef doesn’t make me an authority on everything nutrition.  I certainly don’t profess to know everything about anything in particular but I can tell you this…when I want to know something about anything I do my research and I do […]

ALL ABOUT FLAXSEEDS

FLAXSEEDS

Let’s talk about another mighty seed…the Flax seed also referred to as linseeds, these babies have been consumed for some 6,000 years! So what’s so great about them? Where do I begin?! They are another one of those superfoods that pack a nutritional punch of goodness in a tiny wee package.

Flaxseeds can be brown, tan […]

ALL ABOUT CHIA SEEDS

There is so much talk these days about “Eating Clean”. The truth is…does anyone really know what eating clean really means? What I think is clean eating could be different by someone else’s definition.

I of course have an opinion on this… For me, eating clean means I’m going to try my best to make sure […]

TO ROAST OR NOT TO ROAST…

I LOVE VEGETABLES!  People ask me a couple of questions all the time…1. How can you eat so many vegetables all day…even for breakfast? and 2. What’s you’re favorite way to prepare and eat them?

Well as you can see from the pictures above I oven roast them ALL THE TIME…and they are SO delicious!  You see, all vegetables contain some quantity […]

GLUTEN FREE PANCAKES

I’m always looking for ways to make good old comfort food in a healthier way.  I was really in the mood for pancakes, I’ve made Quinoa, Pumpkin and Coconut pancakes and they’ve all been quite yummy without causing me stomach upset – from the wheat & gluten.  Figured I’d make one of these choices.

When I started to […]

RICED CAULIFLOWER

I live a pretty “low-carb” lifestyle.  I’ve recently added back good high fiber carbs in the form of certain fruits & vegetables.  I do love to make food that has a lot of flavor, sometimes with exotic sauces as in Asian or Indian cooking, when I do I really miss the rice.  That’s when I decided […]

Red Thai Chicken & Vegetable Curry

I started my journey of health & wellness on October 1, 2014.  Believe me when I tell you…if you stay on a very limited diet long enough, boredom can set in pretty quickly.  LOTS of flavor is the key to staving off the boredom and staying on course.

I absolutely LOVE curry of any kind, and […]

LOBSTER GUACAMOLE

One of my all time favorite foods is the avocado.  For the longest time avocadoes received a bad wrap because of the fat content, until scientists proved that the fats in the sublime creamy avocado are really good for us!

The Avocado comes from the same family as cinnamon and camphor.  They are high in Dietary […]
