Spring is a time for shedding the winter layers and lightening up with more fresh, cooling vegetables and herbs, boosting detoxification processes and getting all the sunshine! It’s also the perfect time to start foraging wild leaves and purchasing locally grown produce. This Radish Mint Salad will help you slide gracefully into the new season, boost your digestion, and leave you happy and satisfied! Read more
Some people love a beet soup that is rich and heavy on the cream. I love a beet soup that is light, tangy and fresh with just a hint of heat. Light enough for Spring, yet hearty enough for Winter, this Ginger Lime Borscht is a versatile, detoxifying, ruby-coloured soup that effortlessly covers the seasons while providing a mega-dose of nutrients to help you heal and sustain.
This soup is easily adapted to your personal palate by simply adjusting the flavour levels. For a cozy Winter indulgence, add a little extra ginger, lighten up on the lime juice, and add a good dollop of coconut cream. For a light Spring fling, go all in with the lime and leave the coconut cream for another shindig!
Getting more vegetables into my body has often seemed like a chore. Sometimes the thought of making another salad, chewing another salad, and trying to digest another salad is just too much – and so sometimes chocolate for dinner just happens (am I right?). Read more
I love basil. It has an absolutely gorgeous aroma due to being very high in volatile oils. It is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, is incredibly high in vitamin K1, and quite decent in vitamins A, C, and manganese. It is possibly my favourite herb to eat fresh, which means I am making a lot of pesto lately! Pesto is also a great way to use up pretty much any greens that might languish in your fridge otherwise. I definitely have trouble eating enough veggies in general (not to mention hydrating enough…), so I am quite happy to be able to add pesto to pretty much any AIP dinner to up my nutrient quota. This single small jar of pesto was made from two large bunches of basil and most of a rather generous bunch of kale (I had to pulse it a few times just to fit it all into my food processor!), so you can see how just a couple spoonfuls of pesto is like adding a whole serving or two of veg. And, because it’s been broken down a bit already, pesto is easier to digest than a raw salad – bonus! Read more
