IMG_1119Cashew ‘Whipped Cream’ on a Bowl of Fresh Organic Berries   Having cashews around the house is a great idea due to their versatility – you can have them raw as a snack, sprinkle them on salads or use them in baking. Cashews are packed with essential minerals and contain 5 grams of protein per ¼ of a cup. This cashew cream recipe is delicious! The “cream” is sweetened naturally with medjool dates, which provide a good source of minerals and fibre. It is so rich and creamy, you will think you are eating dairy.       Ingredients: 1… Read More

These include metal, wood, fire, earth and water, which are all routed to assist different organs in our body. Evoke encourages its consumers to “listen to what your body needs and allow each scent to evoke the elements from… Read More
    Today I had the opportunity to zero-in on two viewers meals and offer some healthy suggestions on The Marilyn Denis Show. This is one of my favourite parts of being a nutritionist because I know that even a few small changes made everyday can set the stage for a huge exciting change. One of the suggestions I made was to try new foods and swap out the not so healthy products for better quality ones. I showcased Little LIFE Box as an easy way to begin this change.  When you subscribe to Little Life Box they will send… Read More

Kids love sweet foods! Obviously this is not ground-breaking news of any kind. But what is ground-breaking is that kids can enjoy sweet treats in a healthy way. Their first taste of sweet begins in utero with amniotic fluid, which contains fructose, glucose, fatty acids and amino acids. As a result babies are born with a preference for the sweet taste of mother’s milk. This initial stage of nurturing creates a safe and comforting feeling that is associated with the sweet flavour. This soothing feeling from sweet foods lives with us into our adult years. You might find yourself digging… Read More

Parenting isn’t always glamorous. I spend a lot of daily energy making sure my kids bowels are churning at optimum efficiency. Poo-regularity is a serious business in our house for many reasons. 80 percent of the immune system is found in the digestive tract. Regularity means better absorption of important nutrients for their growth and efficient elimination of waste.  I always have organic apples in the house for an easy snack. Apples contain a great assortment of antioxidants and one (with skin) contains four grams of fibre. I kick-up the fibre content of this snack with “magic sprinkles” aka chia… Read More
