Hot Detox Super Guac

  I’ve taken many trips to Cozumel, Mexico, to scuba dive in the spectacular coral reefs, and one of my favourite post-dive foods is guacamole. Avocados contain high levels of monounsaturated fats, phytos-terols and antioxidants like vitamin E, vitamin C and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a polyphenol that helps with detoxification and reduces inflammation. Read more here about the health benefits of avocado.   Ingredients: 2 medium       ripe avocados...

Hot Detox Flax Wraps

  This wrap is perfect as a replacement for sandwich bread. I love it with every filling imaginable. Try sprouts and a pickled vegetable (ideally fermented) with your choice of protein. You may eventually want to double the recipe, especially if you own a larger dehydrator, once you realize you can’t live without these! Flaxseeds are an unparalleled source of lignans, which balance the hormones. They are also an excellent source of omega-3 essential fatty acids and a good source...

Gluten-Free Asian Style Konjac Noodles

  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.

This type of noodle is a naturally gluten-free option that is very low in calories.   Ingredients: 4 L    ...

Vegan Caesar Salad

  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...
