Mango-Balsamic Glazed Chicken

This recipe is easy to prepare for nights when you don’t feel like cooking and it yields delicious results. It can also be budget friendly if you buy a whole chicken and cut it into quarters yourself or buy legs with the thigh attached. Feel free to try this recipe with your favourite fruit preserves, apricot is another one of our favourites.

Look for a brand that makes fruit preserves or jams without added sugar (or the addition of artificial sweeteners.) St.Dalfour’s and Crofter’s Organic both make fruit spreads that are sweetened with fruit juice.

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Quinoa (pronounced keen-wa) is hailed as a super grain. It was called “the mother grain” by the Incas, who cultivated it for hundreds of years, high in the Andes, solely for their own use.

Ginger Bison with Snap Peas

I. Love. Bison. The flavour and texture pleases my palate and my body feels good when I eat it. Bison has a slightly sweeter and richer taste than beef which satisfies me more while eating less. Bison is naturally pasture fed on grass which increases the nutrient value of the meat. They are also raised without the use of growth hormones, antibiotics, stimulants or animal by-products. (As bison is becoming more popular this standard may change so please check your source to ensure that what you’re buying is naturally raised and grass fed.)
