I love smoothie bowls for breakfast! Fast, easy and so delicious. This recipe is great for those following a sugar-free plan. Otherwise, you may wish to add in the banana for extra creaminess. All of these ingredients feed the brain and give you the mental focus and energy you need to get up and go first thing in the morning. The blue/green colour is achieved by adding spirulinia.

  My husband, Alan, went to Italy with an exchange program when he was in high school. While he was there, his surrogate Italian mother taught him how to make the best lasagna you can imagine. I re-created that famous recipe in my book Slimming Meals That Heal, keeping the flavour but cutting the carbs and high-fat cheese. I use zucchini in place of wheat pasta and the result is not only delicious, it’s healthy! The presence of anti-inflammatory carotenoids like lutein,...

Another fan favourite from the Healthy Gourmet Show, this crispy salad is perfect from a hot summer day. Jicama (pronounced HE-kuh-muh) is a root vegetable that is popular in Mexico. It tastes like a potato crossed with water chestnut and pear, and it is super low in calories (1 cup contains 46 calories and 6 whopping grams of fibre).  It is high in beta-carotene, B complex, vitamin C, calcium, iron, and potassium. Its sweet flavour comes from the fructo-oligosaccharide also known...

  People are always telling me they miss their bread so when I saw that Sara Britton of My New Roots had come up with this brilliant life changing loaf, I had to try it. I have adapted it by replacing the rolled oats with quinoa flakes and swapping out the maple syrup with coconut nectar. It really can be difficult to give up the wheat bread we all grew up on and so when you discover a recipe for a loaf like this it truly is life changing! It is delicious toasted so you can...

  My Strawberry Rhubarb Flax Jam recipe is very popular but many people ask if they can use chia seed instead of flax. The result? My Raw Strawberry Chia Fridge Jam! You can use frozen berries if fresh are not available in your area. Please note this is a fridge or freeze jam and cannot be kept on the shelf.

  This salad recipe is from my second book, Slimming Meals That Heal. It is a great departure from the standard Caesar Salad offering with Parmesan cheese, a dressing high in fat and salty croutons. It can be served to anyone with lactose intolerance as the fiber from the celery mixed with the dates gives the dressing a creamy texture without dairy. The raw garlic is a sure-fire way to boost your immune system and protect yourself from catching the latest virus going...

  This recipe is a new take on one of the original recipes in my first book Meals That Heal Inflammation. I now love making this dish with konjac root noodles. You can often find this pasta in the refrigerator section of your local health food store. Konjac noodles are made from the root of the konjac plant which is rich in dietary fibre and has no starch. This type of noodle is a naturally gluten-free option that is very low in calories.   Ingredients: 4 L    ...

  Omega-3 fatty acids in flax seeds act as essential building blocks for cell membranes and help reduce inflammation. Both turmeric and ginger are powerful anti-inflammatory spices, making this the ultimate cracker choice for healing. It may seem like a lot of work to make your own crackers, but this recipe takes only a few minutes of prep time. To prepare these crackers, you will need a dehydrator or a parchment-lined baking sheet. Ingredients: 1 cup            ...
