The benefits of Spirulina!

In TCM, green foods build blood via chlorophyll.  Under a microscope, chlorophyll has an almost identical molecular makeup to hemoglobin.  Hemoglobin is the structure that carries iron in red blood cells.  Spirulina is a single cell algae.  These sea algae are extremely bioavailable to the human body.  Meaning, ingesting just a tiny amount, is very easily absorbed by the body. Taking 1 tsp per day to build iron/ferritin levels and event prevent hair loss.  It […]

Healthy Homemade Popsicle Recipe

With this heat wave in Vancouver this summer, I have to admit I have been craving something cold to snack on. It’s easy to find yourself in the grocery store and pick up something prepared, however I was surprised to see the sugar content in some frozen treats- many had a minimum of 20 grams of sugar which is the equivalent to 5 teaspoons of sugar!!

So it got me thinking….I whipped up this recipe one […]

Peanut Butter Cups

Happy Easter! In lieu of the usual corn-syrup laden sugary treats that are available at this time of the year, we’ve adapted this recipe from Detoxinista. This is a much healthier take on the store bought peanut butter cups, and they contain lots of antioxidants from the cacao powder. If you don’t have cacao powder, you can use cocoa powder but you will have to use more maple syrup.

Enjoy!

Happy St.Patrick’s Day!

In spirit of this ‘green’ themed day, I wanted to share a super creamy and delicious green pasta. It’s dairy-free, heart healthy and immune boosting! Not to mention, super easy to whip up. Boil up your gluten free spaghetti noodles, spiralize a zucchini (zoodles) for a lower carb option, or spaghetti squash and whip up this sauce to enjoy with the noodles. This recipe is adapted from Angela Liddon’s cookbook, Oh She Glows.
