  Making homemade strawberry jam is a favourite activity this time of year but most recipes call for high amounts of unnecessary sugar. I love this raw honey sweetened recipe as it preserves all the micro-nutrients, such as Vitamin C, in the berries. You can use frozen berries if fresh is not available in your area. Using ground chia seed as a thickener makes this recipe quick and easy!   *Please note this is a fridge or freezer jam and cannot be kept on the shelf. For...

  A fan favourite from my new book Hot Detox, this recipe is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner! The artichokes contain a substance that can increase the protective mucus that lines the stomach. That is, artichokes can keep the acids that break down our food from creating holes (ulcers) in the stomach lining. Artichokes, leeks, asparagus, arugula and herbs all help to cleanse the liver and bowel. Perfect for your detox! Click here to learn more about Hot Detox!   ...

 1 cup          black radishes, sliced thin

Dandelion greens are amazing for their nutrient-packed goodness and liver/kidney cleansing properties, but it is tough to get folks hooked on their bitterness. That’s not a problem with this wilted salad. The blueberries add sweetness, the pine nuts lend richness and crunch to the bitter dandelion greens, and the honey brings it all together. It’s easy, nutritious, and is the perfect antidote for our little overindulgences!
