If you like key lime pie, you are going to love this shake. It will provide your body with electrolyte minerals like potassium and magnesium, which help to regulate many functions in the body – from the amount of water you retain to the acidity (pH) of your blood. Electrolyte minerals also help to keep your muscles working properly, making this a great shake to enjoy before or after a workout!  Ingredients: 1/2                 ripe avocado (about 1/3 cup) 3 cups        ...

  The avocado, hazelnuts, flax or hemp oil in this recipe provide all the vitamin E your adrenals could want in one meal. Your adrenals store the highest concentration of vitamin E of all your organs, which shows the importance of this antioxidant for maintaining stress resilience.   This delicious salad delivers the medicinal properties of umeboshi plums, which have been used as digestive and adrenal tonics in Asian traditional medicine for centuries. Umeboshi plums,...

The local organic strawberries are flowing and I just love buying flats of these jewels to create new recipes.    My mom and I went strawberry picking this week 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 that helps...

Looking for a festive non-alcoholic drink to share at a party? The ingredients in this recipe will have your adrenals so pumped, you’ll feel a natural energy “high” and you won’t miss the alcohol. Maca is typically found in the Andes, at a high location where the land is barren and weather conditions extreme. These harsh conditions contain very high mineral content that translates into maca root being very high in nutrients, qualifying it as a superfood. An adaptogen is a...

By mixing a bean with a grain you create a dish that is a complete protein - an excellent vegetarian replacement for meat that is extremely low in saturated fat. Millet is a great gluten-free grain that is a good source of most B-vitamins and a 1/2 cup (125 mL) provides more than 20 percent of your daily need of iron, magnesium, and zinc. Millet is one of the most inexpensive ingredients you can work with, priced out at about 30 cents for a 1 cup serving.   Ingredients:...

  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. The cinnamon and seeds nicely balance the higher glycemic index of the rice syrup and quinoa. You can stick with the classic vanilla flavour or make them with a snap of mint!   Ingredients: 1/2 cup      almond or hazelnut butter 1/2 cup      brown rice syrup 1 tsp          pure vanilla extract 1/4 cup      finely chopped dried...

  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    ...
