Grilled Peaches

Peaches are a summer favourite when it comes to fruit, especially Niagara peaches; nothing else quite compares. And every so often I like to spice things up by throwing peach halves right on to the grill – which is a real treat! Grilled peaches are the perfect way to jazz up a weekend brunch/breaky or if you want to impress guests with a sweet and smoky dessert.

I like to keep mine simple with a light drizzle of pure maple syrup as the peaches are the real winning treat already. However, if you are looking for something super delicious and indulgent, grilled peaches  topped with your favourite type of ice or whip cream is the way to go! I personally love them topped with Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss “Naked Coconut” – YUM!

Also, another favourite dish for grilled peaches when looking to use them as part of your main dish, is to pair your grilled peaches with ricotta, basil and a drizzle of EVO and your favourite balsamic vinegar (see here my spin on the classic Caprese).

Green Citrus Juice

Just looking at this juice makes me feel healthier. This fresh zingy juice is bursting with vitamins and minerals and will certainly awaken your taste buds.

green juiceI’ll break it down for you on why kale, pear, cucumber, lemon and basil make such a killer combo.

ingredients1 bunch of kale, 2 cucumbers, 2 pears, 2 lemons, 1 bunch of basil

Adding kale to anything instantly affirms high nutritional value. It is one of the most nutritious greens filled with vitamins A, B6, K, calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc. It is a must add in the majority of my green concoctions.

Pears are rich in natural fruit sugars and offer enough sweetness without being overpowering, while also acting as natural diuretic. They are a great alternative to apples and a great source of fiber, vitamin B2, C, E, copper, and potassium.

Cucumbers add a refreshing element to any juice along with the benefits of conventional antioxidants, electrolytes, vitamin B, C, K, maganese, and flavonoids. I like to add them to my smoothies too, to up the water content.

Lemons add a sharp boost, loads of vitamin C, calcium, potassium, and pectin fiber. All of which help with stimulating the digestive system and flushing out toxins.

Basil is one of my favourite inflammation reducing herbs. It protects the brain, liver, and heart from free radical damage and also keeps things interesting flavour wise. Don’t be shy and experiment with other herbs as well, my go to’s are basil, parsley, mint and cilantro. You will be surprised how delicious adding herbs can be.

There you have it; one delicious juice, five simple ingredients, and multiple benefits. What are you waiting for, get juicing! 🙂

Chia Pudding

The tiny chia seed is a powerhouse of nutrients. It’s loaded with fiber, calcium, maganese, omega 3 fatty acids, protein, and various antioxidants. All of which offer benefits to our heart, brain, digestive, bone and oral health. No wonder it’s a superfood!

You can easily add the chia seed into your daily diet due to its tasteless nature.  I find it easiest to sprinkle on salads, add it to smoothies, or most favourably- chia pudding!

This recipe comes together easily and you can top it however you like.  Interchangeably chia pudding makes a great breakfast or dessert. And an added bonus, this recipe is vegan, raw, and gluten-free.

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract or maple syrup
