My first time having a leek and potato soup was back in early 2000... I'm thinking 2001 maybe. It was a weekend trip to Old Montreal. A cute & quaint restaurant, with some amazing old-fashion charm, presented me with a soup to warm my soul on a cool Autumn day. To this day I still remember the experience. I'm happy to share with you my Leek & Potato Soup Recipe and all the amazing benefits leeks can have to your health. Enjoy the savory soul soup.
If you are looking to use more superfoods during the winter season, then leafy greens like kale are a great choice. Kale grows well in the winter and is relatively easy to find at most grocery stores. It is a superfood filled with vitamins and minerals, and is great for many diets, from clean eating to Paleo or Keto. Here are four different types of kale salads to try out this winter.
For anyone that knows me, I'm a chip lover. If I had to list my favorite, Salt n' Vinegar all the way. But potato chips, although made from a vegetable, are not a health-food and can negatively impact our health. Today I get honest on how the salty snack can compromise your health PLUS I share with you one of my favourite chips recipes that not only tastes good but supports anti-aging to help your skin look younger and healthier.
Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions, which can help protect our bodies. Vitamin C is known to help reduce common cold symptoms as well as shorten the duration and severity of those symptoms. Vitamin C can an be found in many fresh fruits and vegetables. I am loving this Kale Stir Fry. It is packed full of Vitamin C with approximately 170g. Try out the recipe and let me know what you think!
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.
