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.)

Coconut Brown Rice Pudding

Breakfast, snack, dessert? You decide! This delicious rice pudding is a healthier alternative to the traditional white rice, milk and sugar.

Sweetened with almond amasake and raw honey it’s packed with flavour and nutrients. Amasake is a fermented brown rice beverage which can be used as a natural sweetener and raw honey contains live enzymes which aid in the digestion of carbohydrates. Cinnamon is added, not only for it’s flavour, but for it’s ability to slow the rate at which the stomach empties after meals, reducing the rise in blood sugar after eating.

Thai Green Curry

I long to go back to Thailand where ordering food is a breeze, luckily for me traditional Thai food is primarily gluten and dairy free! Wheat and dairy as we know it in North America is virtually non-existent in Thailand where the staples are rice, fresh fish, meat, vegetables and coconut milk. Taking Thai cooking classes is still on my list of to do’s but until then I turn to Thai Kitchen for their green, red and yellow curry pastes, fish sauce and coconut milk. Feel free to use your favourite brand, just ensure that the curry paste and fish sauce do not contain any wheat!
