It's actually snowing in Ontario at the moment which means that fall is definitely here; I hope you enjoy my favourite warming fall squash soup from This Doctor's Kitchen.  It sure feels like fall around here; the air is cool and crisp (I swear I just saw a flake of snow fall outside the window beside me as I type ...), the days are getting shorter, and my weekly organic delivery box is full of delicious fall produce, including many varieties of squash. In order to continue building optimal health this fall season you should focus on eating foods that…

One of my favourite things we ate in Portugal (aside from my daily salt cod fritter) was a huge bowl of the freshest clams I've ever tasted cooked with garlic, lemon, cilantro and vinho verde (aka Bulhão Pato clams).

This bowl of clams was not merely delicious, it was also life changing, since it made…

Mussels contain a hefty dose of beautifying vitamins and minerals, including B12 vitamins, vitamin C, amino acids, iron, potassium and selenium. They are also an excellent source of…

Nothing feels more "fall" to me than snuggling up on the couch with a glass of bold red wine and a huge bowl of hot chili. This sweet potato and beef chili recipe is my absolute favourite and is perfect for this fall weather and cozy evenings at home. It strikes that balance between spicy and sweet and happens to be super simple to make, too. Lately, I've been eating a 'ketogenic' style diet during the day and saving my carbohydrates for dinner time. This strategy allows me to maintain blood sugar balance through the day while maintaining normal cortisol patterns…
