Pepper Crusted Salmon

This delicious salmon, packed with brain- and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, is a favourite at home. Use a good quality pepper mill to coarsely grind the fresh pepper for this recipe—it makes a big difference.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Tabbouleh is a Middle Eastern salad traditionally made with bulgur, a cracked wheat. I've changed things up and substituted quinoa, a whole grain that's higher in protein.

Avocado, Mango and Shrimp Salad

This salad is a cinch to make and it's truly delicious. With only 330 calories per serving, it serves up 26 grams of protein and 7 grams of fibre making it a satisfying meal.

Grilled Fruit Kebabs with Lemon Ginger Dip

This dessert is a cinch to make. The fruit needs only to be heated, so cooking time is short. For a twist, soak the fruit in orange juice before grilling. Or vary the fruit - try watermelon and pineapple.

Lemon Hummus

This creamy, high fibre dip is a crowd pleaser – serve it with raw vegetables or whole-grain crackers. It’s also a delicious spread on burgers and sandwiches.

Maple Glazed Salmon

I don't think you can have too many quick recipes for salmon. This one teams up soy sauce, maple syrup, mustard and ginger for a flavourful meal.

Carrot Ginger Soup

This tasty, creamy soup is a staple lunch for me in the fall and winter. I love the combination of ginger, orange and carrots. It's also a delicious low-calorie starter to any meal.

Easy Lentil Salad

This salad is simple to make and loaded with flavour, fibre, folate and magnesium. It tastes even better when made a day or two in advance. Prepare it on the weekend and enjoy it as a vegetarian lunch during the week.

Hot and Sour Soup

This plant-based, low-calorie soup is a cinch to make - it's ready in less than 25 minutes! I suggest doubling the recipe because it won't last long. My taste-testers liked it so much they wanted seconds and thirds.
