Berry Best Homemade Lemonade Recipe

Summertime in Montreal, where I live is grand! after slugging through a snowy cold witer we welcome the heat. However sometimes the heat can get really hot and muggy and it can last for days.

When I made this the temperature was at 30 C (86 F) And with the humidex 40 C (104F) for 4 days in a row. 

This turned out amazing! Super thirst quenching and delicious.

Healthy Desserts

For years I have been making healthy desserts and modifying dessert recipes to transform them into healthy treats. It's been over 20 years since I ate white sugar, anything containing white sugar or any other type of unhealthy sweetener, such as high Fructose corn syrup. It is not difficult to eliminate sugar from your diet, you can too. As you reduce sugar from your diet, you will no longer experience the sugar highs and lows and your energy will increase.

Here, you will find delicious cakes sweetened only with dates, low fat desserts, puddings, power bars and more. 

Once you start experimenting, you will first be able to reduce sugar in your own recipes and use natural sweeteners like stevia, and eventually replace the sugar completely with healthier alternatives. 

Heart Healthy Recipes

Do you have high blood pressure? High cholesterol? Need to lose a few pounds? Or are you simply in need of finding some heart healthy recipes to make sure you and your heart and arteries stay healthy and young? All of the recipes found here conform to the dash diet (dietary approaches to stop hypertension).

This is the only way I eat and you can easily learn to as well.

Quinoa Recipes

Quinoa is one of the healthiest grains you can eat. It is also safe for all of your gluten-free recipes. 

This wholesome grain (or actually seed) contains an almost perfect balance of all of the 8 essential amino acids, so it is high in protein. 

Very versatile, it can be used hot, to replace rice or potatoes, or added to soups. It can be used cold in salads or made into puddings. I always keep some cooked quinoa in the fridge. 

Check back often as I will continue adding more easy, healthy recipes.
