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...

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...

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...

Avocado Pesto Pasta

Avocado Pesto Pasta

Avocado Pesto Pasta I like avocados. But I can't say I'm avocado-crazy. I see all these people on social media who I'm quite certain, exclusively live off of the things. While I appreciate them, I find I prefer when they're served TO me, rather than me having to figure out how I'm going to use them, and how to time it just so, so I enjoy the avocado on a day where its perfectly ripe. Cause we all know if I wait one more day, it will be mushy and full of brown spots. Last week, I was inspired to do something fantastic with an avocado. So. I bought basil, I bought an avocado, and I used all that social media inspiration to create avocado pesto pasta. And...
