Beauty Fruits

Share

Bountiful, beautiful, and bursting with flavour, nutrient-dense fruits offer a kinder approach to the idea of detoxification. Think abundance, not deprivation. These recipes are about delivering your body what it wants without sacrificing great taste.

Using a food-based approach that includes fruit to assist our body in its natural detoxification process can offer a range of benefits beyond basic toxin elimination. This means feeling good inside while emitting radiance on the outside (that glow!).

Fruit serves up a hit of nutrition in a small package, with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fibre, key components in detoxification and fighting free radicals. And, fruit’s natural sugars mean less added sugar is needed. These recipes go beyond fruitful treats—with recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Incorporating fruit into meals with a variety of colours, textures, and flavours keeps you feeling satisfied so you can focus on enjoying every bite. How sweet is that?

Grapefruit and Fennel Salad with Chicken and Avocado

A riot of textures and flavours, this salad offers something new in every bite. Crunchy fennel, bitter radicchio, and spicy arugula partner with tart grapefruit, rich in skin-supportive vitamin C. And don’t forget creamy avocado, chock full of healthy fats for skin radiance.

Beauty fruit focus: grapefruit and avocado

Tahini-Orange Noodle Bowls

Chilled noodles are the base of this nourishing, detox-friendly bowl loaded with good-for-you greens and a creamy tahini-orange dressing. Build your bowl in a container for lunch to go, dressing right before you plan to enjoy.

Sheet Pan Chicken with Potatoes, Olives, and Lemony Mustard Yogurt

Who doesn’t love a one-dish dinner? This family favourite featuring crowd-pleasing chicken and potatoes gets a lift from lemon—in the oven and in the yogurt sauce—briny olives, garlic, and onion. This weekday wonder can be enjoyed as is or with a simple side salad.

Beauty fruit focus: Lemon

Whipped Yogurt with Lime and Fruit

Lime, vanilla, and soothing honey turn Greek yogurt into a special occasion-worthy dessert. This treat is akin to a fruit-topped no-bake cheesecake, but comes together so much faster.

Beauty fruit focus: Lime, kiwi, mango, blueberry, and cherry

Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Cinnamon, Cloves, and Allspice

There’s nothing like a roast to feed a crowd. These lean pork tenderloins will reign at the buffet table and will be equally enjoyed hot or cold. Simply prepared with a rub scented with the flavours of your favourite apple pie, the meat is roasted and rested to retain its juices before being laid out on peppery arugula leaves simply dressed in a classic vinaigrette. When is pork done? Has your pork ever come out dry? It could be all down to a number. In 2020, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) updated its recommended internal temperature from the previously published 160 F (70 C) to 145 F (63 C) to allow for rest time. The new standard reflects a clearer distinction between temperature taken prior to rest time and after. During rest time, the internal temperature continues to rise, reaching the desired 160 F (70 C).
