Discouraged By Holiday Food Restrictions?

It’s a story I hear from my clients far too often: “Everything was going just great! I was eating foods that are 100% compliant with my restricted diet. I was planning my food, taking lunch to the office, cooking extra on weekends so that I wouldn’t have to worry about what to eat for breakfast. . […]

Staying Healthy When Traveling (Even Last Minute!) on a Restricted Diet

[image source: Pixabay] I recently took an impromptu trip to the US for a dear relative’s funeral. This wasn’t my typical kind of travel when I have my packing list out a week before departure, slowly purchasing all the ingredients so I can prepare dehydrated Alkalizing Kale and Seaweed Crackers or my favorite Breakfast Cookies […]

Creamy Broccoli Salad with Garlic Crunch Topper

Around this time each year, I start to crave spring and spend time dreaming of all things green: green leaves, green trees, green grass, green vegetables. I love the surprise pack of fresh fruits and vegetables that magically shows up at my door in my CSA each week, but since I live in Ontario, it’s […]

SOS Apples: Greens with Roasted Beet, Apple and Almond Feta
