10 Minute Chicken Sausage Saute

Nutrition Month 2018 – Unlock the Power of Food!

We kicked off Nutrition Month 2018 today on Breakfast Television Calgary - talking about unlocking the power of food! I’m loving this unique approach - because we talk A LOT about food relationship at Ignite, and food relationship starts with the family. Food isn't just fuel, but as something that is at the core of our families, cultures, and traditions. Food has the potential to encourage discovery and connection, to fuel, prevent disease, and promote healing. Food is so much more than nourishment - it’s about connection. Leah and I talked about my TOP TIPS to create connection in the kitchen with your family, while incorporating healthy, simple choices. We made my Chicken 'Sausage' Saute, which is a weeknight FAVE at our house. Why it's so awesome: It has SO...

Raincoast Style Crisps

DIY Raincoast Crisps

I want to share a secret with you. Have you ever purchased Raincoast Crisps from the store? The crackers that are thin and have a light crunch. They contain a nutty crunch and sweet taste due to the dried fruit - full of wholesome ingredients - so much so that you wonder if you can make them at home! It turns out - you can! Once I got in on the secret, I just couldn’t keep my mouth shut: DIY Raincoast Crisps are super simple to make homemade! Plus this recipe allows you to make over 10 times the amount of crackers at a fraction of the cost! These crackers are prepared similar to baking a banana loaf. You simply freeze the loaf, chop into thin slices, and bake...

Low FODMAP Eggplant Parmesan

Low FODMAP Eggplant Parmesan

Hey all! Nancy - Andrea's student here! I was lucky enough to receive the “Oh She Glows Everyday” cookbook, by Angela Liddon, for Christmas this year.  My friend must have known I had been eyeing this cookbook in stores already. I couldn’t wait to get into the kitchen and pick my first dish to share with you today. However, it was quite the challenge to pick one recipe, as they all sounded so good. At last, I chose the Excellent Eggplant Parmesan - of course - I made it a Low FODMAP Eggplant Parmesan for all you IBS'ers - it's EQUALLY as delicious as any FODMAP version! The Eggplant slices are coated in a fragrant vegan 'parmesan' and then cooked in the oven until crisp and...

Banana Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Banana Chocolate Avocado Pudding

If you are a fan of chocolate pudding… this is a must try! This chocolate pudding includes an avocado and a banana - a great way to get in some fibre, and whole foods. Compared to store bought pudding - it cuts down on added sugar, and if you have a milk allergy or intolerance, it's also lactose free. It's a great vegan alternative to a milk & sugar based pudding the whole family will love. In addition, the pumpkin seed butter adds a little protein to this dessert, in addition to a satisfying twist for the taste buds! It is super simple and quick to make - I whipped mine up in 5 minutes flat. Put all the ingredients into the blender and press the button. Next time you are craving...

Thai Peanut Noodle Bowl with Fettuccine NuPasta

Thai Peanut Noodle Bowl with Fettuccine NuPasta

Have you heard of NuPasta before? NuPasta is an incredible new product on the market that has a ton of very cool nutrition qualities - and I was so excited when they asked me to create a recipe for them! What is NuPasta? NuPasta is created from the root of a konjac plant, which has unique qualities that make it the perfect gluten free pasta that is high in fibre and low in starch. Konjac is common to Japanese cuisine - and resembles a yam - however it's very low in starch - which makes it much different! Why is NuPasta awesome? When it comes to pasta, our portions in this day and age are often humungous. For many of my clients with nutrition issues, like PCOS (polycystic ovarian...

This is definitely my FAVOURITE muffin recipe! It is my favorite snack to make in bulk and store in the freezer. This quick nutritious snack is great to grab on a busy day! These Banana Tofu muffins are filled with fibre, protein and even essential omega-3 fatty acids. Could it get any sweeter than this? I know what you are thinking- tofu in a dessert? That does not sound sweet. But WAIT. I want to share a little story with you and express why dessert tofu is a great addition to your favourite desserts. When I was studying about the importance of protein at Mount Royal University my professor asked the class “who in this room likes tofu?” Not surprisingly, only a few raised their hand. I didn’t. I knew...

Mocktail Madness!

Mocktail Madness: Delicious Summer Mocktail Recipes

It is FINALLY summer time - a great way to take in the heat is to enjoy some fruity drinks on the patio! When I really tune into my body, sometimes I realize - it really isn’t the alcohol that I crave but simply a nice cold refreshing drink! These delicious summer cocktail recipes definitely helps to curb that craving, helps to prevent FOMO - and unnecessary alcohol intake. For a lot of people with IBS & gut health issues - alcohol can trigger symptoms of diarrhea or constipation. Plus, alcohol can harm your gut microbiome, so ultimately, I encourage people to mostly limit their alcohol to drink to one a day. I know lots of times, that's tricky, especially when everyone else around you is drinking - which is...
