What’ Ellen’s Lovin
Citrus – Lemons & Limes
I am lovin’ all the ways you can use citrus. They are so versatile. Zest them, juice them, slice them, bake with them, use them in making a vinaigrette or marinade, add them to drinks or make fresh lemonade with them. The perfect addition to summer time baking and cooking. I always have fresh lemons and limes on hand in my fridge. I just wish a had a lemon tree!
What Lynn’s Lovin
Homemade White Bean Burgers
Eating more plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, peas, whole grains and legumes just makes sense to me. Numerous studies have shown that it may be better for our health to eat fewer animal foods and fill our plates with plant-based foods. Even our newly revised Canada’s Food Guide is promoting Canadians to move towards this style of eating.
Don’t be fooled though with some of the new marketed plant-based burgers and sausage meat substitutes. Many of these foods are higher in fat, sodium, and lower in fibre than you think they would be. Be sure to always read the label, and if you can cook from home more often.
If you are looking for a great plant-based burger try this wonderful white bean burger made by you!
What Jenn’s lovin
It’s in season and there is so much you can do with it. Keep it simple, grill it and drizzle with balsamic vinegar, make a pizza or on a rainy day make a batch of asparagus soup. Home made soup with fresh asparagus – it doesn’t get any better that that! What’s your favourite asparagus recipe?
