Kale Pesto

This summer my garden is bursting with kale and my husband and daughter aren't crazy about it so I have to be a bit sneaky getting it in. They gobbled this up!

Ingredients:
4 cups of kale, chopped and steamed until soft, water drained
1 cup of basil
2 cloves of garlic, peeled
½ cup of olive oil (more or less depending on how thick/liquidy you like it)
¼ cup of pine nuts

Directions: Add all ingredients to blender and puree. Pour on pasta, chicken, fish or veggies!

Yummy Multigrain Pancakes

These pancakes are delicious and packed with fiber! In my house, we enjoy with fresh fruit for a nutritious Sunday morning breakfast. I use a Vitamix to turn whole oats and quinoa into their flour form but the pre-made flour can also be purchased.

Ingredients
½ cup oat flour
½ cup quinoa flour
1 Tbsp honey or maple syrup
2 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 cup milk (almond, cow, coconut or your favourite)
1 egg
2 tbsp oil

Directions: Combine all ingredients. Cook on a hot, oiled pan. Enjoy!

Recipe of the Month: Home-made Popsicles!

It's hot out there! You want to cool down and enjoy a delicious treat. Rather than reaching for the ice cream or store-bought popsicles (that are just made of sugar, water and artificial colouring), try making your own! It's easy and fun. Kids love making them too.
