Christmas is my favorite time of year, the gathering of friends and family, the recalling of years past… and the food!  It seems like there is an endless stream of  holiday buffets, filled with rich and lavish treats that only come around during this festive season.  What I love about the food over the holiday’s is that most people .

Kale is one of my favorite green vegetables and it should be one of yours!  Part of the cabbage family, kale contains more than just stellar amounts of vitamins and minerals like C, K, E, calcium and magnesium.  It is also a great source of antioxidants and chemical compounds that help regulate immunity, fight cancer cells and.

Deconstructed Sushi!

Sunday 6 November 2011 . (0)

Sushi is  one of the most popular “fast food” options for both adults and kids alike.  So popular that most major grocery stores have a sushi kiosk.  If you are buying the most popular variety, vegetable and calafornia style rolls – it can be a healthy meal on the run.  However,  it is important to note that it is easy to.

Shrimp Tacos

This taco recipe is a great switch from the old stand by “kit” style tacos, that usually uses ground meat.  If you don’t want to use shrimp you can  use any leftover fish.  Simply add some pre shredded coleslaw mix and you have a fantastic meal with great texture and flavour! 8-10 cooked shrimp, cut.

Mediterranean Quinoa Cakes

Monday 29 August 2011 . (0)

Quinoa (keen-wa) for me is a pantry staple.  Although it has an odd sounding name, it is as easy to prepare as rice and contains good amounts of protein! Whenever I make it, I always make double so that I can use it for a second meal.  The beauty of this recipe is that once. Continue Reading…

Creamy Avocado Salad Dressing

Monday 1 August 2011 . (0)

No doubt about it, salad is easier to eat when it has some creamy dressing on it.  Watch out, though, most of the calories in a salad come from the dressing and if you aren’t careful you will be eating a whole bunch of useless and/or harmful fat.  This dressing comes together in a snap.
