Well, isn’t this a root awakening – beet juice likes to mark its’ territory. My cutting board has officially been dyed. Lucky for this vegetable, its’ sweet/earthy flavour and nutrient profile (folate, vitamin C, potassium and fibre) support my decision to continue to...

Don’t berry your feelings – I berried it in these healthy muffins for you. Oh, and I didn’t use just any berries. I used one of fall’s classical fruits, cranberries. While there seemed to be a local shortage of this vitamin C loaded fruit, I managed to get my hands on...

I love fibre. There I said it. This should highlight the running theme in most of my posts.  It’s one of my top three favourite nutrients for various reasons (i.e. bowel movement regularity, slows digestions, lowers cholesterol, keeps you full longer, blood sugar contr...

Who says comfort meals can’t be healthy? It’s time we squash that myth. Growing up my mom would often offer "macaroni and cheese" as my afterschool meal. This wasn’t just any kind of macaroni and cheese – I’m pretty sure she snuck in some vegetables in the cheese sauc...

I Before E, except after C – unless your protein.
