Banana, Peanut Butter and Date Protein Smoothie

Banana peanut butter date protein smoothie

I love smoothies but I admittedly get tired of the same old fruit and yogurt versions. This banana protein smoothie is an unexpected twist from the norm and is PACKED with protein and fibre to keep you feeling full and energized throughout the morning. Dates and bananas are both loaded with potassium and fibre, and the whey, milk and peanut butter add a substantial amount of protein.

Crustless Pumpkin Pie (Gluten-Free)

Desserts & Baking, Gluten-Free, Recipes

Crustless pumpkin pie

I confess, it’s always been the pie filling, not the crust, that I’m after. I’d say that this is especially the case with pumpkin pie, the quintessential fall dessert. The good news is that skipping the crust makes it so much lighter in the calorie department! Pumpkin is rich in fibre, carotenoids and Vitamin A, which may help improve night vision. And hey, who doesn’t need better night vision at Halloween?

Mexican Kale Salad (Gluten-Free)

Gluten-Free, Recipes, Salads

Mexican Kale Salad

We can’t get enough of these Mexican flavours in our house: honestly, we cook a Mexican meal nearly once a week. This is a super healthy and filling kale salad that incorporates the Super Food kale into the mix to give it a bit more texture, fibre and vitamins. In addition to only having 33 calories per cup, kale is rich in lutein and xeaxanthin, nutrients that give kale its deep, dark green coloring and protect against macular degeneration and cataracts.

Vanilla Bean Rice Pudding (Gluten-Free)

Vanilla Bean Rice Pudding

Rice pudding seems to be one of those childhood staple deserts that I keep coming back to. The best part is that it is so easy AND is naturally gluten free. If you want to make this vanilla bean rice pudding vegan, substitute the eggs for the chia seeds and the whole milk for the almond milk and voila, vegan comfort food in a pinch!

gluten-free peach raspberry muffins

Eating gluten-free can be a challenge, especially when it comes to baking. Enter my friend and long-time mentor Patricia Chuey. When faced with the same food challenge, she stepped up to the plate and created her own gluten-free flour blend that knocks the socks off of any other gluten-free flour on the market.

Garden Italian Meat Sauce

Garden Italian Meat Sauce on rotini

My aunty Becky once told me that there are some things you don’t mess with (ok, she put it a bit more colourfully), and for me, a meat sauce is one of them. I like it to taste like I just stepped into Italy and load it up with heaps of fresh basil from the garden and a healthy dose of Parmesan. View The Post
