Low FODMAP Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Low-FODMAP Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Hey- it is Nancy here, Andrea’s student, and today I have got a Low-FODMAP hummus to share with you! Yes, that’s right, there is such thing as a delicious hummus without any garlic or onions! Garlic and onion are two foods that are high-FODMAP, specifically due to their high contents of fructo-oligosaccharides, and can make digestion for IBSer’s unpleasant. Unfortunately, they are also two flavour ingredients that are common in so many dishes! But - let all your troubles fade away because this hummus is specifically made Low-FODMAP and is still full of flavour! Hummus is a great snack to help you get through the morning before lunch, as its primary ingredient is chickpeas which is full of protein to keep you full! An important note about chickpeas is...

Cinnamon Tahini Chickpea Salad

Cinnamon-Tahini Chickpea Salad

I fell in love with the flavours in Berry Nourished’s Moroccan-Quinoa Salad and decided to create my own rendition of this quick and simple salad! I amped up the cinnamon flavour in this dish, and kept the colourful array of vegetables that make this dish taste and look so delicious! This dish consists of chickpeas that provide a great source of protein and fibre, and fresh vegetables to help increase your vegetable count for the day! If you fall in love with the flavor and simplicity of this salad like I did, try doubling (or tripling) the recipe next time, as this dish is great for quick grab-on-the-go lunches! Once you start chopping, it doesn’t take long to double the ingredients, and it can help eliminate prep time on a...

Warm Lentil & Potato Salad

Warm Lentil Potato Salad

Hey all! Did you know, November is Diabetes Awareness Month? As such, I thought I would do a recipe re-vamp of a warm potato salad recipe! You all know how I feel about comfort food, especially in the Fall. I want to curl up, and eat delicious things that remind me of family meals around the dinner table! This warm lentil and potato salad does JUST that. Potatoes are quite high on the glycemic index - meaning that they have a bigger impact on blood sugar than lower glycemic index foods. By choosing foods lower on the glycemic index, you can stay fuller longer (read: prevent hanger!), keep blood sugars in check, and EVEN manage your weight. I've done a recipe makeover to make traditional warm potato salad high fibre,...

Chocolate Zucchini Lentil Loaf

Chocolate Zucchini Lentil Loaf Hey all! I'm sure many of you know, but I'm taking part this year in Pulse Canada's Pulse Pledge! For those of you who DON'T know, it's the International Year of the Pulses! When I started participating in this amazing movement, I had an influx of questions. What's a pulse? How do you cook them? What's your favourite way to eat them? How can they help my nutrition? Well. I have all the answers for you! Check out my post talking ALL about what a pulse is HERE >>>> In the mean time, I wanted to make a fun pulse recipe. I rarely bake. Mostly because I don't like following directions. But I made this cake, and couldn't stop eating it. I think my father-in-law...

What Are Pulses? A Dietitian Explains.

What Are Pulses? | International Year of the Pulse

Hey all! I'm sure many of you know, but I'm taking part this year in Pulse Canada's Pulse Pledge! For those of you who DON'T know, it's the International Year of the Pulses! I've had many people ask - Andrea - what are pulses? Well. Let me tell you. A pulse is the actual edible part of the legume! Think chickpeas, lentils, kidney beans, and green peas (the 'legume kind'). Many people aren't so sure about beans and lentils. I find if you didn't grow up eating them, you might have them in chili, every once and a while, but you tend to not include them in your diet. However, I think there is a great movement towards including them, and rightfully so - I'm a huge proponent...
