Roasted Garlic

With the holidays over, we may find ourselves in need of a little TLC. I know I may have rubbed shoulders with a few people fighting a cold.... and being the holidays... extra stress, late nights and indulging a little more than usual (yes I ate truffles), my immune system was compromised and welcomed some uninvited guests.   At the first sign of a cold, I infuse my body with liquids, preferably warm nourishing teas and bone broths and eat a lot of roasted and raw garlic (sorry if I smell extra nice). Check out the Roasted Garlic recipe on my site!! Supplementation is important when battling infection, including probiotics & Vit C along with essential oils like clove. Most importantly rest, early bedtime and reduced sugar and low-carb diet (sugar will suppress your immune system) is key to reducing the duration and severity of illness.

Guacamole – Nicole’s Famous Guac

If you have invited me over for an event/party, then you likely have asked me to bring my famous guacamole.  And the reason why is because it's so darn delicious. This guacamole recipe has been in my family for 19 years, come this New Years Eve.  The only change we have made to it was switching from peeling/seeding tomatoes to dicing plum/cherry tomatoes (so much easier). This year, my guacamole made another Xmas eve appearance and come New Years there will be an encore.  If your party planning is in full swing as we prepare to ring in the new year,  this dish will complement your meal and definitely impress your guests.  Enjoy!!

Roasted Beet Noodles with Pesto and Kale

If you love pesto and beets, you will love this recipe... and even if beets are not necessarily your vegetable of choice, the pesto sauce brings in a delightful flavour... that even I can enjoy the beets in this salad. :) This salad is low carb with only 8.6g net carbs (for my keto friends) & high is healthy fats!  Omega-3 fatty acids support brain function, cognitive health, cardiovascular health, reduce triglycerides, support mental and emotion well-being... to name a few of the benefits! ✔  It's no wonder I recommend Omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. Did you know beets have a cleansing effect on the liver, aid digestion and the immune system and tone the blood and build red blood cells.  They also flush out uric acid & table salt and combat anemia, debility and general weakness.  Now you know why beets are in almost all nutritional detoxes! The Roasted Beet Noodles with Pesto and Kale recipe from my friends over at Inspiralized, along with 19 other fabulous recipes are part of my Post-Holiday Detox, now available in my online shop.
