Mango, chicken and curry seem to be the ultimate pairing. I used the Alphonso Mango which is a seasonal fruit considered to be among the most superior varieties of the fruit in terms of sweetness, richness and flavour. Alphonso's voluptuous shape and sunshine-yellow skin reveals succulent saffron-coloured flesh that's smooth [...]
After work today I spent and hour and a half mowing our new sod for the first time. It was looking like a little bit of a jungle. Birds were getting lost in the luscious vegetation and our poor Boston Terrior Nico has to bound like Bambi to get from [...]
It has been a very long 6 weeks of preparing our garden for the summer season and now we are able to sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labours. There is still a few little jobs to do and of course general maintenance but now we are seeing [...]
This lovely little wrap was a delicious and filling dinner. A perfect balance of creaminess from the cashew cheese and a little bit of crunch from the broccoli. You can opt to use soft tortilla wraps if you want a more traditional wrap but I love these pitas. They are [...]
For the last few weekends we have been feverishly working in our back garden. We have a substantially large yard that has taken over a bit in the last few years. This year was the year we thought we should change things up and simplify. The advantage to not moving [...]
I love tarts but the crusts are usually loaded with fat and carbs which isn't very waist line friendly. Sure there are fabulous crustless quiches and tarts out there but sometimes you just want a little flaky goodness. This crust is made of almond and coconut flour so it does [...]
Salads are not just for summer anymore. Sure some of the ingredients may be out of season right now but your body will definitely thank you for the super foods you are putting in. Its like filling your Porche up with premium fuel. You will preform better and notice a [...]
I love the versatility of a great salad especially when there a re a few different dietary needs under one roof. You can add and subtract ingredients at will and the salad still tastes awesome. The one thing I really loved about this dish was the dressing. It was slightly [...]
I think spring might finally be here but my son is still in snowboarding mode. Yesterday afternoon was a balmy +5 but off to the local ski hill we went. The conditions were still good and the boys didn't have to dress up like an Eskimo. We were at the [...]
I had this refreshing salad at work yesterday. It is zesty and a very versatile salad. Get creative with the grains, greens and beans you use.
A gratifying dish for chilly months. It offers fresh and lively flavours of a salad, but the comforts of a moe substantial meal. When roasting the carrots and shallots keep an eye on the nuts that they don't scorch. This warm hearted salad is high in protein and fibre. A [...]
This high protein and high fibre salad is a nice side to any meal or on its own as a nice light lunch. Store the salad in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days. What is wheat berry you ask? Wheat berry refers to the entire [...]
Meat is carb free and high in protein. Even served over rice it is low carb. This dish is somewhat like a chicken strogenoff and goes well with brown basmati rice or borad egg noodles.
