Mango Cashew Salad

This simple, flavourful salad is bursting with antioxidants. Use mangos that are slightly firm so they hold their shape when you mix the salad. You can also serve this salad as a salsa paired with grilled fish or chicken.

Easy Fish Tacos with Tomato & Avocado Salsa

This version of tacos de pescado is made with avocado, cherry tomatoes, cilantro and mint. Feel free to add whatever vegetables you have on hand (I love shredded cabbage).

Spicy Sesame Swiss Chard

Swiss chard is an incredibly versatile vegetable - it can be sautéed or steamed, or added to soups, stir fries and smoothies. This is one of my favourite ways to enjoy locally grown Swiss Chard in the summertime.

Thai Roasted Trout with Fresh Lime

Rainbow trout is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids that help keep your heart, brain and eyes healthy. This dish is as delicious as it is simple to make.

Mediterranean Pasta Salad

This is one of my favourite salads to make when hosting a barbecue. It's loaded with flavour and can be made the day before.

Strawberry Kiwi Smoothie

My taste testers loved this delicious antioxidant-packed smoothie! One serving contains more than twice the recommended daily intake of vitamin C!

Roasted Ratatouille

This roasted vegetable dish is delicious and makes plenty of leftovers for quick weekday lunches and dinners. At only 107 calories per serving, it delivers plenty of fibre and antioxidants. From Bonnie Stern's More Heartsmart Cooking.

Red Lentil Soup

Don't be fooled by their red hue - when cooked, red lentils turn pale yellow. And unlike many other pulses, red lentils are very quick to cook.

Chipotle Chili

Chipotle chili powder gives chili a rich, smoky flavour. Save some of this chili for leftovers - it's even tastier the next day.
