Recipes

Live, whole, unprocessed foods have a great power over our overall health and wellness. Our bodies know how to utilize the live enzymes, vitamins and nutrient density of these foods to balance, restore and reclaim our energy and vitality. All my recipe development takes this into consideration and incorporates foods that nourish the body as a whole for physical, mental and emotional well-being. My recipes primarily use the power of plant-based ingredients. When animal products are used, they are local, organic, free-range and/or grass-fed and I provide vegan substitutions for when they are used. I use no refined or processed foods and only natural sugars are used in moderation. There is no one perfect diet. Each person is biochemically unique; therefore, your diet needs differ from the next person. In my recipe index, you will find choices to meet the needs of many lifestyles such as gluten-free, plant-based, raw, vegan, vegetarian, paleo, dairy-free, weight wise and heart healthy dishes.

Coffee-Rubbed Jalapeno Bison Burgers

Burgers? Yes Please. Coffee? Always. Have you ever enjoyed a coffee rubbed burger? If not, you are in for a real treat. When I was in Hawaii, we hit up a burger place that had Kona Coffee rubbed burgers. It was amazing. The type of coffee you select can give the meat a distinctive aromatic taste and add acidity, bold aroma, bitterness, and sweetness to the meat. A dark nutty roast or a sweet espresso powder can completely change the taste of the meat. I like to pair the coffee rub with Bison. I find Buffalo has a lighter flavour, tastes slightly sweet and is deliciously tender. Buffalo meat is naturally lower in fat, calories and cholesterol than traditional beef. Plus, unlike conventionally raised beef, bison are typically grass-fed. Shake things up next time on the grill and try these burger patties.

10 Keto Friendly Must Have Condiment Recipes

Now, as the weather is getting nicer and patio season is upon us my clients want to know “What can I drink on Keto?”. The reality of going camping, enjoying your lake vacation, or hanging out with friends and not having an ice-cold drink can feel a lot like “diet restrictions”. What we know about restricting ourselves and saying “oh I can’t enjoy that I am on a diet”… is it’s very damaging emotionally, can make you feel defeated if you do not follow strict guidelines, and can increase binge eating. By taking a balanced approach we want to live our lives while aligning with our health goals in a seamless way.  Now, I am most definitely not saying that alcohol is apart of a healthy diet,  but what I am saying, is that for those that want to not feel restricted, not stress about what to drink at the BBQ while aligning with your low-sugar and/or low-carb lifestyle then there are ways to do both.

Perfect Paleo Chocolate Sauce (GF, V, Keto)

Beautiful Banana Splits. Chocolate Drizzle on a mountain of whipped cream.  Dipping fresh fruit into warm chocolate sauce. A decorative topping to your cakes and pastries.  These are a few ways I like to use a chocolate sauce to elevate your dessert when you are wanting to serve something special or just because you want to indulge a little. It is amazing how excited everyone gets when you add a bowl of warm chocolate sauce with a platter of fresh strawberries at your patio party than simply serving the strawberries alone. It takes it from a plate of fruit to a fun and delicious dessert.
