Every program has a collection of seasonal inspired recipes within a structured meal plan and all of them use fresh, wholefood ingredients, loads of veggies and some specially…

Vegetable & White Bean Soup

This soup is so simple but SO satisfying. It’s beautiful and bright and lovely for all seasons. If you don’t have fresh herbs, it’s totally cool to use dried ones but I challenge you to check out the fresh herb section the next time you’re in the grocery store. Fresh herbs will make any soup…

What the heck is Beet Kvass?! {Recipe}

Well, first and foremost it is my FAVOURITE ferment and it’s really pretty! But I have a special thing for pink things and beets these days…. Kvass is fermented beet juice. It’s salty, earthy and a bit sour – I’m obsessed! I wrote a bit about beet juice here. The fermented component of this treasure…

Parsley Quinoa Salad (Tabbouleh, Tabouli)

Salt: The Most Important Salad Ingredient

I eat a LOT of salads. On busy days (which is most days) a big salad is my only true meal and by dinner I have a lot of nutrient making-up to do. 10 – 12 servings of fruits and veg is a lot, but totally do-able if you’re into (or get into) superfoods and…

5 Awesome: Berries!

All berries are awesome! They are delicious super-fruits that are easy to enjoy on a regular basis. The first thing I think of when I think of berries is their antioxidant dynamism. Berries contain an extremely wide range of antioxidants. Antioxidants protect cells and DNA from damage and oxidative stress – this type of cellular damage…
