Overnight Peach Oats

I am a peach lover, so naturally this time of year in Ontario is very exciting for me. This past weekend I picked up my first basket of Niagara peaches and my mind is already swirling with recipe testing ideas. I actually dislike really ripe fruit, except for when it comes to peaches....I love a juicy ripe peach. Over the weekend I made two different batches of overnight oats, one kind with yogurt that is stored in the fridge and one in the slow cooker. They are both delicious, but I personally love the slow cooked version. These breakfast options are a great source of fibre, which will help keep you satisfied all morning long. The best part about both these recipes is they taste like a peac

Herb Crusted Salmon

One of my favourite things about Canadian summer months is the abundance of fresh herbs. I think my favourite herbs are fresh parsley and basil, as they are both so versatile. I use them in pestos, bean salads, with fish, chicken, etc. I happen to have both these herbs growing in my mini garden out back, so they tend to be my go to herbs. Recently I have been playing around with my garden herbs and discovered a herb crusted salmon. If I could describe this recipe in one word it would be...YUMMY! (Yes, it's caps lock worthy). Salmon is rich in poly and monounsaturated fatty acids (your healthy fats and omega-3s) and it's also a great source of vitamin B12, which plays an important role in you

Berry Delicious

What's your favourite fruit? My favourite fruit is the raspberry (has been my favourite since I was little). There is something about their sweet and tartness that feeds my cravings (you know those sour candy ones). Smoothie bowls are a great refreshing option for the summer. It can make for a healthy breakfast or afternoon snack (when that sweet tooth has kicked in). If you like berries as much as I do it's also a great way to make use of Canadian berries when they are in season. I find the local berries always taste SO much better. Do you agree? Secret tip: when making a smoothie bowl always use lots of frozen fruit. I find this gives the bowl a sorbet type of texture (almost like ice crea

Raw Kale Avocado Soup

Summer has arrived, the sunshine and heat always make me crave cold foods and drinks, like ice cream or fresh watermelon. But let's face it, we can't eat ice cream all day long, although we may want to. One of my favourite comfort foods is soup (not so cold and refreshing). To help make my favourite comfort food more suitable for warm weather I have created a delicious raw soup recipe (that can be eaten chilled). This recipe is perfect for lunch or dinner on a warm summer day. Give it a try and let me know what you think. Cold soup may sound strange, but I promise this is as delicious as it is nutritious! Serves ~ 4 Ingredients: 2 cups kale (stems removed) 1 cucumber, sliced 1 ripe avocado 1

What makes green tea healthy?

Is green tea better for you than black and oolong tea? What are its health benefits? What is matcha all about? Find out below! Is green tea better for you than black or oolong tea? There are three main types of teas: green, black and oolong tea. All three are derived from leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. Green tea is prepared using unfermented leaves, oolong tea using partially fermented leaves and black tea using completely fermented leaves. As the leaves become more fermented, the polyphenol content becomes lower and the caffeine content becomes greater. Green tea has the highest polyphenol content while black tea has roughly 2 to 3 times the caffeine content of green tea. Polyphenol

The 'Dirty' Dozen

Do you wonder if you should buy organic fruits and vegetables? I get this question all the time, but I often find myself having difficulty coming up with a yes or no answer (and the truth is I don't have one). In my opinion, there are a lot of benefits to choosing organic produce, but there are also draw backs including the cost. What we definitely know: Organic foods are produced without synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. This means that only natural pesticides can be used to protect the crops. Organic foods mean no GMOs Organic foods mean no use of growth hormones or antibiotics There isn't enough research to know whether organic foods contain less pesticide residue than non-
