Hot Detox Turkey Loaf

My mother-in-law first introduced me to the idea of pickles in a meat dish. The fermented tang makes this loaf shine! Turkey is high in tryptophan, which gets converted to 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), and then to serotonin, the neurotransmitter that helps improve mood. Onions are often overlooked on the nutrition scale, but they contain some of the highest levels of an antioxidant called quercetin, which works as both an antihistamine and an anti-inflammatory.

Why I Love Canada ~ Happy Canada Day!

  Canada is celebrating its 150th Birthday on Saturday, July 1. I find it inspiring, and I want to take a moment to send a love note to Canada, because I do feel blessed to live in this land that is filled  “with glowing hearts” standing “strong and free”.    I think Canada is the best country in the world to live in…despite its insane weather. The hottest day in Canada was +45 C (113 F) as recorded in Yellow Grass, Saskatchewan. In sharp contrast, the coldest day was...

Hot Detox Frittata

  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.

Hot Detox Pretty Purple Sauerkraut

  Sauerkraut is sour because of lacto-fermentation, a process in which probiotic bacteria break down the cabbage. A serving of sauerkraut gives you a powerful dose of these healthy probiotics, which aid digestion, and research has found raw sauerkraut prevents cancer cells from forming. It contains sulfur-containing compounds known as glucosinolates, which help the liver eliminate excess estrogen and xenoestrogen. I use purple cabbage because it also contains anthocyanins, a...

Flax Apple Breakfast Pudding

Flax is one of the highest sources of soluble fiber, which cleanses the colon and reduces cholesterol. Flax seeds contain up to 800 times more active lignans (plant estrogens found in the outer husk) than other plant sources. Studies have shown that these powerful antioxidants may reduce the risk of...
