So this past weekend was Thanksgiving and I have to confess that I totally dropped the ball on my daily posts. My family was together at my mom’s home on the St. Lawrence River and it was just too beautiful out to be typing away on my computer. Given that it was Thanksgiving there was A LOT of food (& wine) this weekend. We did eat fairly healthy but (confession #2) we… Read More

I had a tonne of leftovers and veggies that needed to be eaten today. I was also in a big rush to make my lunch because I spent over an hour (at 6am!) making a dairy,sugar and gluten free chocolate pie to serve at my family dinner this weekend. I was a little wary that this salad was going to be a bust but it actually turned out pretty darn tasty. Ingredients:… Read More

I found this pasta at Costco. I don’t buy a lot at Costco. Number 1 reason = I can’t leave there without spending at least $200. Number 2 reason = they sell a lot of mass-produced crap. Having said this, lately I have been finding more and more healthy options at Costco. I always get really excited..and afraid that they will no longer stock it the next time I shop there. So… Read More

Today was a dinner salad kind of day. I did a late workout and needed some good muscle building protein. This salad is filling and delicious.   Ingredients: 4 romaine leaves 1 tomato, diced 1/4 avocado 1 tsp finely diced red onion 1 hard boiled egg 3 oz cooked chicken breast, chopped 1 tsp olive oil Squeeze of lemon juice Fresh cracked salt and pepper Directions: Place romaine leaves in the middle… Read More

This salad is all about the kimchi. For those of you who have never tried kimchi, it is delish! I would have to say that it is one of those foods that scares some people. I mean, it’s fermented cabbage. Sounds pretty nasty. It is actually so tasty and so great for your digestive health because of the natural probiotics that occur in fermented foods. It is the star of this salad… Read More

This is what I call a “Man-Salad”. Bacon…check Potatoes…check Eggs…check But if I left it there I would be doing everyone a disservice by limiting their daily green intake. 🙂 So, the bread and butter of this salad is actually the green beans and avocado. Yum yum yum.   Ingredients: A lot of green beans. At least two big handfuls. 1/2 avocado 1 strip of nitrate free bacon *if you prefer not… Read More

  Yup, beets again. 🙂 Your athletic endurance, stamina and cardiovascular health will be thanking me! Did you know that studies have shown that beets are excellent for cleansing your liver (a little pre-cleanse before your Friday night debauchery) as well as benefiting your heart health by lowering blood pressure and acting as an anti-oxidant. Not only that, the World’s Healthiest Foods has made beets their food of the week. Read more… Read More

Day 2: One of the habits I have gotten into in order to make my life easier and food prep fast (especially when I’m doing it at 5am before work) is to batch cook certain foods. For example, on the weekend I roasted a butternut squash (see day 1 recipe). I prepped my kale. And I made some beet chips. I had sliced too many beets in my food processor and got… Read More

The BIG Salad Challenge George loudly explains, “What I would like to know is, how does a person who has nothing to do with the Big Salad claim responsibility for that salad and accept the thank-you under false pretences?”   I don’t know how many times I have had people tell me that they don’t “feel full” or aren’t “satisfied” eating a salad as a meal. Hog-wash! They aren’t making their salads big… Read More
