Liver Loving Salad

Spring is the long awaited time of transitioning from cold winter to warm spring. The days are getting longer and warmer! We are gardening, flowers are blooming, local produce is booming. Spring brings a sense of renewal and new life all around. In Traditional Chinese Medicine they say spring is the time of the liver.
This means it’s our opportunity to make dietary choices to support the liver, and what does the liver love? Sour and […]

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.

St.Patrick’s Day Green Pasta!

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.

Valentine’s Day Treat! Chocolate Banana Bites

The definition for Valentine’s Day is, “a day when it is traditional to send a card, often anonymously, to a person one is romantically involved with or attracted to.”

For many of us the foods we prepare are an extension of our character and a way to show love for others. With that in mind, I wanted to share a deliciously sweet and satisfying treat. This one is easy to whip up with ingredients in your […]

Healthy Superbowl Recipes

It’s Superbowl 51 this Sunday February 5th, and the battling teams are New England Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons. I have to admit I don’t get too excited about football but I do enjoy the halftime show (Lady Gaga this year!), and spending time with family and friends.

Running Healthy Living 101 and supporting clients on making healthier choices during social outings is always a hot topic. I thought I would give some healthy ways to cut […]

Citrus Holiday Cocktail

Tis’ the season for social gatherings with family, friends, and co-workers. It’s easy to overindulge in sweets, food, and beverages that leave you feeling not-so-good the next day. This cocktail is refreshing, hydrating, and low-sugar.
