Spicy Candied Walnuts

Sweet, salty and spicy - these walnuts have it all! Although this recipe makes an addictive cocktail snack year round, it's also a special treat for the holidays.

Garlic Roasted Cauliflower

Roasting cauliflower gives it a delicious nutty flavour and crispy texture. I add plenty of freshly ground black pepper to give the cauliflower extra spice. (If you don't like garlic feel free to omit it from the recipe.)

Spicy Black Bean Soup

This easy to make, protein- and fibre-rich soup is a crowd pleaser. Serve it with a side salad and whole grain corn tortillas for a satisfying plant-based meal.

Cranberry Apple Granola

My clients love this recipe. The ginger gives this granola extra zing. To reduce added sugars, subsitute unsweetened dried cherries for the dried cranberries.

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).

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.

Spicy Sesame Swiss Chard

Swiss chard is truly a nutrition powerhouse. It's packed with antioxidants, magnesium, potassium and bone-building vitamin K. This version of the sauteéd green gets a flavour boost from toasted sesame oil.

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. It's a simple dinner, especially if you live in warmer climates, and the leftovers are great for next day's lunch. This salad is 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!
