Simple Meat Balls

I was in a hurry and had no time for frying meatballs, so decided to baked them, while I prepared the salad. These were just as tasty that I doubt I will return to frying meatballs. I add whatever leftovers are in the fridge to my ground beef. It is noteworthy that our family gets our grass-fed beef from Big Bear Ranch. We know them very well, a  family-operated farm in the Cariboo Region in […]

Cauliflower Bell Pepper Salad I have been doing countless hours of recipe development to help clients struggling with all kinds of health issues, be it cancer, diabetes, arthritis, chronic fatigue, eczema, depression and more.

Chick Pea Salad

Chick Pea (Garbanzo Beans) Salad

In the summer I try not to spend too much time in the kitchen and stick to salads. A lot of the street food in India (“Chaat”) has variations of chick peas on their menu. “Chaat” which has a variation of sweet, spicy and savoury sauces poured over garbanzo beans, potatoes served with cilantro, onions and tomatoes and crispy puris. My dream food as a child was “chaat” and always a great excuse to take […]

Elderberry Elixir

Elderberry Elixir

I blended the Elderberry Elixir as a remedy for a bad case of the flu. I am not a doctor, but this works better than medicine for me. I noticed in many bottled elixirs, there is about 12 grams of sugar in 1 ounce! That’s a lot. Over the years I add almost no sugar in my beverages. I started taking this with me to add to carbonated drinks when I go out to eat.This […]

Bone Broth

Bone Broth

The person who has influenced me the most in my healing food journey is Sally Fallon, author of, Nourishing Traditions one of my favourite recipe books.  This broth recipe is an adaptation of her recipe. My magic elixir is the broth. Plain and simple. Not a week that goes by that I don’t have a large pot of broth simmering. It is my go-to medicine for everything. Flu, colds, joint pain, nausea, energy boost, sore throats. […]

Cilantro Chutney

Cilantro – Mint Chutney

My next-door neighbor Sean has mint growing wild. He handed me some mint leaves and I made him this chutney from other ingredients I had on hand. This one is a keeper. My chutneys never turn out the same as I often change the spices I use depending on if I want it spicy or not. Below is a simple and flavourful Cilantro Mint Chutney recipe. It goes well with Indian food. Ingredients: 1 cups […]
