Healthy Homemade Nuts n'

Healthy Homemade Nuts n' Bolts

Nuts n' bolts is one of those holiday staples. Every year I'm lucky enough to receive nuts n' bolts as a Christmas gift from friends and/or family members. My favourite is a combination of peanuts, pretzels and Honey Nut Chex cereal drizzled with milk chocolate mmmmmm! It is divine!! But in typical dietitian fashion, I wanted to revamp the standard high sugar low fibre recipe, so I put a nutritious spin on this holiday favourite.

Cinnamon Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding Is The Perfect

Cinnamon Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding Is The Perfect Dessert

Chia seeds are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and omega-3 fats. They come from a flowering plant in the mint family grown in Mexico, and were a staple in the diet of the ancient Mayans and Aztecs. Chia seeds were thought to have magical powers. Aztec soldiers would grind up the seeds and eat them for a boost of energy to sustain them over long periods of time. I add them to oatmeal, salads, granola, and baking.

A Fish And Chips Recipe With All Of The Flavour, Less Of The Fat

I love fish and chips just as much as the next person, but I sure don't like the heaviness of a deep fried batter. So the question is, how can we indulge in the texture and flavour that we love with traditional battered fish and chips, but without all of the fat and calories?

How To Give Pad Thai A Healthy

How To Give Pad Thai A Healthy Makeover

When I go out for Thai food, I always order pad Thai. But after thoroughly enjoying every bite, crumb, and speck on the plate, I usually end up with a stomach ache and am guzzling water for the rest of the day a result of the rich, creamy sauce and mounds of sodium. That is why pad Thai is one of my favourite food makeovers!

You Can't Beet This Beet Pesto Pasta

You Can't Beet This Beet Pesto Pasta Recipe

This may be the first time I've used the word "stunning" to describe a pasta dish, but oh wow, look at that colour! This dish gets me really excited. Many pasta sauces are high in salt (tomato-based sauces) or high in fat (cream-based sauces), but not this one, thanks to the beets.
