Wholesome Chicken Bone Broth

Wholesome Chicken Bone Broth

I like to have a roasted chicken from time to time, and rather than throwing out the carcasses, I will freeze them until I have enough to make a delicious, nutritious and versatile chicken bone broth.

Bone broth is so good for you! It’s loaded with so many great nutrients, including collagen – a protein found in the skin, bones and muscles. When the chicken carcasses are boiled down, the collagen in the bones becomes nutrient-packed gelatin.

I love to indulge into a bit of chocolate during the holiday season! However, the chocolate that you will find lining the shelves at the retail stores are full of refined sugars, additives and artificial flavourings.

But what if I told you that you can have your ice cream and have it nourish you, too?! My Strawberry-Banana Nice Cream is the perfect treat on a hot summers day, filled with lots of cool nutritious goodness.

Banana Nut Chocolate Cinnamon Muffins

Banana Nut Chocolate Cinnamon Muffins

I love a good muffin! But visiting the local bakery or café can provide some challenges if you are looking for a healthy option. Most muffins are made with dairy, refined sugar and lots of wheat gluten-filled flours. So I set out on a mission to make my own muffin that would be both delicious and made without these pro-inflammatory ingredients.
