Foraging is one of my favourite ways to connect with nature; not only is it a great excuse for a long meditative walk in the woods, it also has added culinary & medicinal benefits. In Ontario, fall is the best season to forage for wild mushrooms. Delicious varieties like my favourite chanterelles are plentiful, and the best way to get them is to search for them yourself. It’s a wonderful excuse for a mindful (mushroom hunting takes concentration) walk in the forest before winter settles in. If you’re new to foraging for wild mushrooms going out with an expert is…

Paleo Fish Tacos with Jalapeño Slaw + Spicy Sunflower Seeds This fish taco recipe has a lot of components, so bare with me here, I promise you all will be worth it come dinner time.

Truthfully, there’s nothing particularly difficult about this fish taco, it just has a few extra steps than most of my…

Quick and super easy to make, these healthy delicious fish fritters are a great way to start using up some of those bright summer herbs growing in your garden.  In addition to heaps of juicy tomatoes and crisp zucchini our backyard garden is overflowing with fresh summer herbs. Lucky for us, everything tastes better finished with a handful of chopped herbs; we're throwing them on salads, whisking them into omelettes (with backyard-fresh eggs of course) and incorporating them into all of our al fresco dinners. I created this recipe last week while contemplating the fate of our abundant dill plants.…

It's zucchini season! This doctor's garden is currently full of fresh summer staples like zucchini, basil, juicy tomatoes and kale. Every summer there is one particular crop that tends to grow more abundantly than the rest. Last year it was tomatoes; we had so many juicy bright tomatoes that we almost ran of out ideas of how to use them up. We canned salsa, made tomato sauces, and even gave them away as gifts to neighbours. While our tomatoes are still doing just fine, this year the humble zucchini has taken over as the queen of the crops in our little…

Paleo Lemon Chicken Piccata from This Doctor's Kitchen  Chicken Piccata is my favourite Italian dish, traditionally made with flour, wine and tons of butter. While the original is tremendously tasty, it's sadly not an option in our household due to my issues with gluten & dairy. I've realized that over the years that gluten and dairy flare up my acne and joint pain, and cause my autoimmune markers to absolutely sky rocket. Fried buttery chicken may be tasty, but not tasty enough to risk the return of skin issues, pain and debilitating fatigue. With dietary staples gluten and dairy 'off…

Keto Laksa Coconut Curry Soup  While this coconut curry soup is not a technically a Balinese dish, it definitely captures the same South East Asian flavours that we enjoyed so much on our trip to Bali. Made from coconut milk, a special curry paste called laksa, shrimp and keto noodles, this soup has all the flavours of Bali (with none of the carbs!). Laksa is a paste made from all of my favourite south asian flavours: lemongrass, chilies, shallots, galanga (or ginger), turmeric, spices and dried shrimp. These fresh ingredients are blended up in a food processor then sautéed in a pot…

I just turned 32 last Thursday. Significant because I'm now old, but also because I celebrated without a phone call or visit from my Grandpa, who passed away recently and shared my birthday - March 21st. Even though we didn't get to see each other all that much I'd hear from him without fail yearly on our birthday. He'd always describe the beautiful weather in his new hometown of Ajijic, Mexico and tell me that I was the best birthday present he ever received. I had the opportunity to visit my grandpa a few times in Mexico before he got sick…

In honour of the big game this weekend I'm whipping up an extra large batch of my healthy breaded cauliflower bites. These cauliflower 'wings' are insanely delicious ✔️ paleo-friendly, gluten-free, dairy-free and completely guilt-free. Cauliflower is truly one of the world's most underrated health foods, perhaps because this vegetables bland colour makes us think of all the other white foods that we're often told to avoid: white bread, white rice, white sugar. Generally, people don't associate cauliflower with the same abundance of nutrients as its fellow cruciferous vegetables like kale and broccoli, however research shows that cauliflower is just as rich in phytonutrients…

You may have noticed Alison Roman's "the stew" recipe on instagram this week. Her delicious chickpea-based recipe has taken the internet by storm and is a wonderful addition to your weeknight dinner recipe lineup. This recipe is cheap and easy, and comes together in less than an hour from the following simple ingredients: 2 cans of coconut milk, 2 cans of chickpeas, garlic, onion, greens, stock and turmeric spice. While delicious (it has TWO cans of coconut milk - how can you go wrong here), I tweaked the recipe a few times until I came up with a variation that…
