Dates

During Covid confinement I have been doing a lot of baking. Something I never really took a liking too. I love cooking but baking wasn’t in my repertoire. Eating sweets and pastries is not in keeping with a healthy diet. But there are ways to enjoy the odd sweet treat while avoiding all of the […]

Turnips

With our Thanksgiving fresh in my mind, I’m reminded of a vegetable that we don’t include in our weekly rotation of vegetables very often.  It is often served at holidays along with the festive roast turkey dinner.  I never would have thought that this rarely eaten vegetable would be so good for you.  Time to start […]

Lentils

Brussel Sprouts

You either love them or you hate them.  Brussels Sprouts are definitely a hit in my household but I’ve come across many people who don’t like them.  That’s too bad as they are very good for you.  You could consider these gems a bit of a superfood for all they hold nutritionally. The Brussels Sprout […]

Lentil Loaf (my version of meatloaf)

Everybody loves meatloaf.  It is such great comfort food.  Being vegan, I had to reinvent my meatloaf into a meatless version.  With the use of lentils I have come up with a really good loaf that satisfies our craving for comfort food.  I add some chunky homemade mushroom gravy and some mash spuds and we are […]
