    Brown Rice Morning Bowls with Mango and Coconut Golden Milk

    Brown rice is a low-allergen, high-fibre, and nutrient-dense alternative to instant oatmeal. Making a big batch of these morning bowls at the beginning of the week will carry you through a workweek of healthy cleansing. This neutral, grounding base can be made savoury or sweet, for any appetite.

    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).
