So apparently tacos are 'trending' right now and as much as I love a good old classic childhood taco (Old El Paso kit), sometimes I crave something a little lighter and fresher. My husband is also temporarily vegan which means I need to get a bit more creative in the kitchen. This was a hit! Not only does it have tons of veggies that help with phase II of liver detoxifcation (cabbage, brussel sprouts and cauliflower) but is also cleverly disguised as a comfort food. Yes, please.
You know those cravings that just won't quit? Chocolate is one of those cravings for me and usually, cravings are a sign that your body is missing something. This could indicate a magnesium deficiency, which is a co-factor in neurotransmitter synthesis, so it literally makes us happier. Why deprive ourselves of this?! The problem is, chocolate is often high in sugar so it isn't ideal for an after-dinner pick-me-up. Here is a recipe that is ideal for people with all types of food restrictions, low in sugar and high in omega fatty acids. It is perfect for keeping you satiated.
It's the time of year when there is an abundance of cookies, cakes, cheese plates, and chocolates surrounding us, tempting our eyes, mouths, and bellies. Sometimes it can be hard to find time between Christmas parties, Christmas shopping and seeing loved ones to fit in those veggies. Have no fear! We've got a solution for you - a delicious, nutritious green goddess soup that fits in some of our favourite detoxifying vegetables. This is the perfect thing to get warm and fill yourself up on the good stuff rather than the goodies.
Toronto is sizzling right now and sometimes we want something other than hiding out in an AC-blasted house to beat the heat. This is a refreshing summer drink to cool down when times are hot. I love this recipe becuase it isn't overly sweet and has a decent hydrating ratio to it (aka it's not all alcohol). Feel free to mix up the type of wine, liqour, fruit and tea to make it to your liking!
Gluten-free + Vegan | We all know mornings can be hectic. We also know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day; a nutritious breakfast kick-starts our metabolism, curbs cravings and helps to keep our blood sugar level throughout the day. This recipe is a great solution to an early morning rush because you can make it at night, wake up, grab and go. Making a large batch at the beginning of the week and dividing it into mason jars is a great way to minimize effort!
