This cold Spanish-style tomato soup is loaded with vitamin C. It's meant for those warm summer days when local tomatoes are readily available. This soup gets better the longer it sits, so if you have time, make it the day before you plan to serve it.
This Asian-inspired salmon recipe is a favourite in my house. It also works well if you bake this salmon in a 400° F oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until salmon flakes with a fork.
It's the time of year to enjoy fresh in-season berries and this smoothie recipe serves up plenty of protein, fibre, antioxidants, vitamin C and calcium. Frozen berries work equally well. For a priobiotic boost, use kefir instead of yogurt.
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. It's a guaranteed crowd pleaser among my cottage guests.
A tasty - and nutritious - alternative to beef burgers. The recipe calls for canned salmon but I'll also use leftover grilled or baked salmon if I have it on hand. Don’t forget the horseradish – it pairs well with these burgers!
This simple, flavourful salad is bursting with antioxidants. Use mangos that are slightly firm so they hold their shape when you mix the salad. This recipe also makes a delicious salsa that pairs well with grilled fish and chicken.
Portabello mushrooms have a meaty texture and rich flavour, making them a tasty vegetarian alternative to a steak or a beef burger. I also like to add sliced grilled portabellos to a platter of mixed grilled vegetables. So easy and so delicious.
Cilantro (a favourite herb of mine) and lime juice make this bean salad taste delicious! Serve it as a side dish with dinner and take the leftovers for lunch during the week. If you like, toss in some grilled corn.
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.
