4 Home Remedies to Improve Fertility

4 Home Remedies to Improve Fertility

I’m a big do-it-yourself-er.  I love being able to research and resolve things on my own.  It’s so empowering and really makes me feel like I can take care of myself.  I think that’s part of the reason I became a nutritionist – I love feeling like I am in control of my own health.Continue Reading

Pistachio Crusted Salmon

Pistachio Crusted Salmon

Salmon is one of my all-time favourite foods.  I could eat salmon every couple of days and be pretty darn happy.  I like it barbecued, baked, poached, smoked, candied, or pan-fried.  Normally I just bake it with a bit of butter, dill, lemon and sea salt, but I was looking for something a bit moreContinue ReadingContinue Reading

Breaded Butternut Squash Fries

Breaded Butternut Squash Fries

I love experimenting with different vegetables in place of traditional grain or potato-based foods, such as spaghetti noodles, rice, mash and even fries.  My usual go-to for homemade fries is sweet potato.  I find it comes out a little less mushy than yams, and has a ton of flavour.  Continue Reading
