Honey Orange Glazed Salmon with Orange Almond Arugula Couscous

If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that putting a healthy dinner on the table doesn’t have to be intimidating or time consuming.  I LOVE cooking. But even a hard-core foodie like me doesn’t like complicated recipes. Maybe I will when my kids are grown and I have oodles of time on my hands (does that ever happen?), but at … View The Post

Loaded Tabbouleh (Bulgur) Salad

Salads

Mediterranean bulgur salad loaded with veggies and whole grains, such a satisfying vegetarian meal!

I went through my pantry yesterday and figured I would cook with whatever ingredient I pulled out first. That ingredient happened to be… bulgur! Now, if you haven’t cooked with bulgur I highly recommend it, it’s such a neat grain!

I don’t usually post two days in a row, but I’ve had a busy week already in the kitchen and couldn’t wait to share these recipes: I LOVE a good salad! (Charlie even listed it as my favourite food on my Mother’s Day card, he knows me well).

Harvest Apple Quinoa Salad (Gluten-Free)

This apple quinoa salad is truly fall in a salad. Filled with healthy BC Tree Fruits apples, quinoa, nuts, seeds and kale, you can feel good about putting this on the table. I felt even better knowing that it only took me 15 minutes once my quinoa was cooked to put it together!

Arugula & Quinoa Salad

We’ve been seriously crushing on arugula lately. Maybe it’s a consequence of eating our weight in spinach (we go through so much spinach!)?  Paired with quinoa, this hearty arugula salad is enough for a meal, but you can top it with a filet of salmon or chicken if you wish!

Chickpea Feta Salad

Chickpeas get a lot of love in our house. Then again, what is there not to love? This Mediterranean powerhouse is full of fibre, protein and a long list of vitamins and minerals. Chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) have shown to help control blood sugar, maintain good bone and heart health, improve digestion and even help with weight loss.

Baby Kale Quinoa Salad Recipe

Let’s be honest, you would have had to be living under a rock for the past couple of years to miss the fact that kale is ridiculously healthy. The quintessential ‘superfood’ seems to have made its way into almost every possible meal.  I’ll admit that there are many food fads that I’m not fond of; however, it’s hard to find … View The Post

Kitchen Sink Salad in white bowl with wooden tongs

Isn’t it funny how January hits and all of a sudden salads look AMAZING??  I guess a person can only handle so many shortbread cookies before the body goes on strike. I ate a quinoa salad at the Cactus Club not that long ago that I became obsessed over.  I loved the combination of ingredients, and it was a unexpected … View The Post
