Asian salmon & mango salad

April 8th, 2013|Blog, Nutrition, Recipes|

Salmon is one of my favorite things in the world- flavour AND nutrition wise. Not only is this delicious fish filled with healthy omega-3 Fats, (improve brain, heart and overall cell function), salmon is a great source of protein, which is crucial for anyone who exercises regularly in order to feed those working muscles- the heart included of course! Salmon is very versatile in the way it can be prepared. For this particular dish, I was inspired by a Jamie Oliver recipe (also called Asian salmon incidentally). My version is more nutritionally dense; I omitted the noodles and added more veggies. In short, I made it healthier and simpler so that anyone can cook it up even on a busy weeknight.
Give it a try,  you won’t regret it 🙂

But, if you do a bit of research and read your labels, you’ll be able to find a few diamonds in the rough!

Recipe: Healthy Butternut Squash Fries

September 25th, 2012|Blog, Nutrition, Recipes|

Now that Fall is officially under way, so winter squash season here in Ontario. So many beautiful varieties  to choose from; one of my personal favorites being butternut squash, especially baked in the oven as “fries”. Yes fries! They are delicious. True they don’t get quite as crispy as potato fries. That is because they are much less starchy and contain more water (they actually shrink quite a bit when baked). Not to mention the type of starch found in winter squash have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, as well as anti-diabetic and insulin-regulating properties. Sounds like a win win situation!

TRENDY KALE
Kale has become trendy. Yes, kale, as in the leafy green vegetable. It has become the cool kid in class – the football player with the 95% academic average who is going to Yale next year. Kale is going to Yale! Anne Hathaway did a kale diet. NBC profiled Uma Thurman’s “Smash” smoothie, which includes kale. Toronto has a restaurant named Kale (delicious, by the way). It’s even becoming an increasingly popular baby name.
