It’s no secret that I’m a dessert for breakfast kinda girl. This baklava-flavoured breakfast bowl takes my treat-for-breakfast obsession to the next level. The chia seeds and quinoa really sing with the addition of rose water, orange juice, and maple syrup. Topped with pomegranate seeds, berries, fig, and pumpkin seeds, this is a fancy café-style breakfast waiting to be devoured. Divine!
Combine chia seeds with 1 cup (250 mL) coconut milk and almond milk. Mix thoroughly with fork. Set in fridge for 30 to 45 minutes.
Add quinoa and remaining 1/2 cup (125 mL) coconut milk, and stir to combine. In small cup, combine orange juice, maple syrup, and 1 Tbsp (15 mL) rose water. Taste. Add extra 1 Tbsp (15 mL) rose water if preferable (do it!).
Divide chia mix into two bowls, and top with coconut milk and maple syrup. Top bowls with fruit, orange zest, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, and rose petals, and serve.

This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
If you’re hungry for a nighttime snack, then spoon up this creamy, sweet-tart yogurt bowl to help promote some sweet dreams. It’s also a great breakfast option with a little granola tossed on top. The cherry compote can be made up to 5 days in advance. Less is more Many people would be surprised by the amount of added sugar that can be found in flavoured yogurts, including vanilla. A healthier option is to select products that are labelled “plain” and then let natural sweetness come from fruit toppings.
For many of us, turkey is a comfort food that recalls happy memories. This stew is one that is comforting both to make and to eat. Simmered slowly over a few hours, turkey drumsticks deliver rich flavour as well as a huge punch of protein. Tarragon gives it a fresh, bright pop of flavour that balances the earthy richness of the stew. Turkey contains high levels of B vitamins and selenium, as well as tryptophan, which has been explored in recent research for its role in the formation of the mood regulator serotonin. Leftover turkey You can also make this dish with leftover cooked turkey. Simply start the recipe by browning the leek and onion and adding stock, carrots, and parsnips. When the vegetables are tender, add cooked turkey and continue with the recipe [object Object]
