  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...

  This recipe is healthy enough to be a breakfast bar on days when you don’t have enough time to eat a sit-down meal.

  People are always telling me they miss their bread so when I saw that Sara Britton of My New Roots had come up with this brilliant life changing loaf, I had to try it. I have adapted it by replacing the rolled oats with quinoa flakes and swapping out the maple syrup with coconut nectar. It really can be difficult to give up the wheat bread we all grew up on and so when you discover a recipe for a loaf like this it truly is life changing! It is delicious toasted so you can...

If you want a true stress busting salad this combo will do the trick. The sprouts provide great B vitamins that nourish your nervous system. The red pepper provides exceptional vitamin C that is important for adrenal health. Blueberries have been shown in clinical trials to reduce the stress hormone cortisol. The nutty flavour of the hemp hearts pair nicely with blueberries and the mood-boosting fat in hemp make this a truly happy salad!   Ingredients: 4 cups    ...

Why is this a Happy Dip? Because it has dopamine boosting ingredients. Bryce Wylde reported, “In a December 2008 study in the journal Nutrition & Metabolism, J. Reinholz and colleagues suggest that your brain uses dopamine to tell your body when to stop eating. Low dopamine levels may also play a role in overeating for people with a genetic predisposition to low dopamine levels. And incidentally, an August 2009 article in the European Journal of Neurology, C.G. Bachmann and...

We all know that getting your child to eat a healthy lunch can be challenging. It is especially hard when you send a packed lunch to school each day, only to have it come home untouched. What do you do if your kids have already fallen in love with fast food? How do you entice them to eat let alone enjoy their healthy home-made lunches when they are constantly tempted by the salty, sweet seduction and flashy packaging of the unhealthy choices around them? Allergies, asthma, and...

Consider taking a protein digestive enzyme supplement with this meal if you’re adjusting to eating meat and your stomach is having a tough time. Note: If you’re unable to source bison, you can substitute organic or free-range beef tenderloin.   Ingredients: 2 sprigs    ...
