Cauliflower Parsnip Soup

Roasted Cauliflower Parsnip Soup

This soup is a great light dinner on a cool evening. It is suitable for special diets such as vegan, paleo, gluten free and people with dairy allergies. In addition, cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamin K, which acts as a direct regulator of our inflammatory response. Parsnips shine as a fiber source. They're high in soluble fiber, the type that helps lower cholesterol and keep blood sugar on an even keel.

Cauliflower & Pomegranate Salad

Cauliflower & Pomegranate Salad

A recipe from our Weight Management App that is loaded with many minerals, vitamins and is a thermogenic (metabolism-boosting) powerhouse. Cauliflower is an excellent source of thermogenic vitamin C, vitamin K, folate and even contains some choline. However, it's the sulfur compound called indole-3-carbinol (i3C) that gives cauliflower its thermogenic effects. Pomegranate contains many minerals and vitamins including potassium, magnesium, folate and a good dose of thermogenic vitamin C. Eating pomegranate fruit whole rather than in juice form, is most beneficial for weight loss.

Black Bean Quinoa Sliders and Tahini Sauce

These quinoa sliders are filled with foods that help stabilize blood sugar. This is a great use for leftover quinoa and the sliders last for several days in the refrigerator. I like to make them at the start of the week to have on hand as an addition to green salads to boost protein, healthy fat & fibre.

Brown rice is an excellent source of fibre, vitamins and minerals, protein, and even esstential fatty acids–all important for blood sugar! Add in the walnuts for some vitamin E and essential Omega-3, these two antioxidants maximize walnuts' ability to reduce inflammation.
