What better way to enjoy fresh summer produce than with a simple, tasty recipe?!

My mouth is actually watering for a delicous, homemade salad like this one. And it’s full of healthy ingredients like spinach, avocados, mushrooms, goat cheese and, of course, berries! Lots of berries!

So what’s so great about these ingredients? Well berries are full of antioxidants, powerful substances that can help protect your cells against free radicals. Goat cheese provides some protein, riboflavin and phosphorus. Avocados are a good source of vitamin C, vitamin K and dietary fibre. Spinach is also an excellent source of vitamin A, calcium, vitamin C and iron!

Tasty Tuesday: Easy Fish Fillets

It’s Tasty Tuesday!

When it’s hot outside and you don’t feel like making a big complicated meal, try this easy fish fillet for dinner. Any white fish such as cod, halibut, haddock, or grouper will work well.

We found this great recipe that only calls for lime juice, some light mayo, onion powder, pepper, breadcrumbs, margarine and parsley.

You could add a squeeze of lemon if you’re not a fan of lime. Or combine lemon and lime for a zesty flavour! Approximately 1 1/2 pounds of white fish will yield 4 servings. Half the recipe and you’ve got a nice meal for date night!

Pair it up with some asparagus and rice for a light, healthy and tasty meal. Enjoy!

Looking for a new way to cook with PGX granules? Read on for a sweet recipe!

Julie Daniluk, registered nutritionist, shares her recipe for a berry delicious blueberry pie!

Nutritionist and host of Healthy Gourmet Julie Daniluk recently appeared on Breakfast Television to make her fabulously Blissful Blueberry Pie, and guess what it feaured? PGX granules! In this recipe, she combines PGX ( PolyGlycopleX?) with Agar Agar and features it in her upcoming book Meals That Heal Inflammation. Fiber is just as good and sometimes better at creating a beautiful jammy or pudding texture, which Julie proves with this recipe, but with an added health kick. PGX granules are an easy solution to inceasing your food’s fiber content.
We hope you enjoy making this recipe and leave a comment below on how you like it!
Blueberry Pie:
1 cup Water
1 cup Cranberry or Pomegranate Juice
? cup Agar Agar Flakes
? cup Honey
1 ? tsp PGX
1 tsp Cinnamon
pinch Salt
3 cups Frozen Wild Blueberries*
* It is important that the berries are small or the agar agar and PGX will simply create a jelly mold around the berries. When the berries are small they mix with the agar agar and PGX to create a jam filling for the pie.

2 cups Pecans
? tsp Cinnamon
pinch Salt
2 Tbs Honey

Cashew Cream Topping
1 cup Raw Cashews
Pinch of Salt
1 tbsp Honey
? cup of Water
1 tsp PGX
The secret to this recipe is to work very fast. Prepare all ingredients ahead of cooking the agar agar or it will set before you get it into the pie crust!
Prepare crust first so it is ready to receive the berry mixture:
1) Put pecans in a food processor and whisk until it becomes a fine meal. Add honey, salt and cinnamon and remix. 2) Press pecan mixture into a 9-inch pie plate.

Then prepare the berry mixture:
1) Have all ingredients on hand pre-measured 2) Bring water to a boil, whisk in agar agar, salt, cinnamon and PGX 3) Keep whisking while cooking for 2 minutes on high boil to dissolve and blend ingredients 4) Take pot off the boil and whisk in honey 5) Quickly whisk in blueberries 6) Immediately pour into the pecan crust

Prepare cashew cream topping:
1) In a food processor blend water, salt, cashews and honey for 2 minutes 2) Add PGX and continue to blend for another 2 minutes. 3) Top pie with cashew cream 4) Can be served within 10 minutes of making but it also tastes great chilled. Makes 8 large pie servings.
