We all need a treat once in a while but white sugar and white flour can cause tremendous inflammation. It is important to stay clear of unhealthy fats and sugars by using whole foods. That is why I created this nutrient dense pie, for my book Meals That Heal Inflammation, that is healthy enough to eat for breakfast.   Ingredients:   Crust: 1 cup      unsweetened shredded coconut 1 cup      walnuts 1/4 tsp    gray sea salt or pink rock salt 1/2 cup  ...

  Wild leeks, commonly known as ramps, are quickly becoming a culinary delicacy in Canada. With a flavour best described as green onion with a strong garlic smell, ramps are used in many springtime recipes such as soup and egg dishes, or pickled and used in salads, but ramps can substitute for onion or garlic in any dish. Wild leeks are a perennial plant that grow in old woods and ravines, so if you are lucky enough to find a growth area, you can keep going back to it year after...

  No need for dairy in this soup from my book Slimming Meals That Heal! I have used coconut and cauliflower in this recipe to give it a thick and creamy texture. Asparagus is high in two classes of antioxidants called phenolics and flavonoids. These powerful antioxidants protect the heart and arterial walls from free-radical damage that causes the type of inflammation that can eventually lead to heart disease.   Ingredients: 3 cups         asparagus, ends...

  Dandelion greens are excellent for you! Though many people know of the health benefits of eating these nutrient dense weeds, they shy away from the bitter taste. The younger the leaf, the less bitter it will be but there is no denying dandelions have a strong taste. Fortunately this taste can be mitigated. Similar to rapini, dandelion is particularity tasty with coconut oil and garlic. The trick is to cook the garlic on a low heat so it slowly caramelizes into a sweet accent...

Dandelion greens are amazing for their nutrient-packed goodness and liver/kidney cleansing properties, but it is tough to get folks hooked on their bitterness. That’s not a problem with this wilted salad. The blueberries add sweetness, the pine nuts lend richness and crunch to the bitter dandelion greens, and the maple or birch syrup brings it all together. It’s easy, nutritious, and is the perfect antidote for our little overindulgences!

    Guacamole First! My personal trainer Taevan Gangnier has been in the kitchen again, whipping me up some tasty food while I am on a detox cleanse. If you have an issue with tomato due to a sensitivity to solanine, it can be omitted from the guacamole without loosing the great flavour. We love using guacamole to top just about everything! Ingredients: 2                   avocados 1                   limes, juiced 1 small        ...

The local organic strawberries will be flowing soon and I just love buying flats of these jewels to create new recipes.    Last year my mom and I went strawberry picking as we wanted to make some honey sweetened jam. She was out of the chia seed I would normally use as a binder, so I decided to put some flax seeds into a coffee grinder to grind them into a super fine powder. The homemade flax powder worked great!    Pectin, Flax, Chia - all of these contain fibre...
