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.

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.

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

This hearty breakfast oatmeal is loaded with blood sugar balancing ingredients. Rolled oats can play an important role in effectively lowering your blood sugar and improving insulin resistance. Ceylon cinnamon, also called “true cinnamon,” has beneficial effects on blood sugar by stimulating insulin receptors and inhibiting an enzyme that stops them from working.

Turkey Roast

Apple and Kale Stuffed Turkey Breast

Looking for an alternative to cooking a whole turkey, try stuffing a turkey breast roast with local seasonal apples and nutrition rich kale.

Turkey is an excellent source of protein, which will help to prevent dessert induced blood-sugar crashes. Kale promotes regular digestion, lowers blood sugar and curbs overeating, and the pectin in apples lowers LDL ("bad") cholesterol. So enjoy this healthy alternative with your family and friends this Thanksgiving weekend.
