Roasted Sausage with Fennel Slaw and Sauerkraut

Roasted Sausage with Fennel Slaw and Sauerkraut

Here’s a delicious and light meal to help ease into spring. If you’re a regular salad and protein eater, try this meal instead because it feels like so much more than salad and protein;  the sausage gives this dish a little filling richness, complemented by alkalinizing, liver-loving vegetables and gut-loving probiotics. Health Benefits Fennel has […]

What is Clean Eating?

What is Clean Eating?

Make Your Own Dairy Free Yogurt: Probiotic Young Thai Coconut Yogurt

Make Your Own Dairy Free Yogurt: Probiotic Young Thai Coconut Yogurt

Over the last few years, I’ve experimented with making my own coconut yogurt, to help cut down on dairy intake, and to give people doing my detox programs a delicious, dairy-free stand in.

Links, links, links: Add flavour without calories, how to have the best sleep of your life, and never have an emotional eating binge again

Weight Watchers Canada asked me to write a piece on ingredients and techniques that boost flavour without adding calories, so I chatted with Carol Belmonte, chef and owner of Toronto’s Belmonte Raw. We rely on hunger pangs to tell us when we’re hungry. But sometimes the sensation of hunger creeps in due to emotional reasons. […]

Smoothie Fun with Fitness Republic

From blue-green milks to lattes, everyone is so crazy for blue-tinged health drinks these days. I’m a huge fan of alkalizing, mineral- and protein-rich spirulina (I’ve turned it into Mineral Milk and a Spirulina Surge Smoothie).

And it was there that I discovered poké, a Hawaiian style chopped fish “salad,” where cubes of glorious raw tuna or salmon get […]

If you follow me on my newly-created food Instagram account, you’ll know that I’ve been crushing on kiwis all year, adding them to smoothie and buckwheat bowls for a fresh burst of colour and a little eye drama. So when Zespri sent me a package of its gold kiwis, I was excited to try for […]
