    Here’s a smoothie that Bugs Bunny would go crazy for. Enjoy it when in need of a quick breakfast or an after-workout recovery treat. Ricotta cheese adds richness and protein, but you can also use plain Greek yoghurt.

    1 medium carrot, chopped
    1 orange, peeled and quartered 
    1/2 cup (125 ml) low-fat ricotta cheese

    1 1/2 Tbsp (30 ml) almond butter
    1/4 tsp (1 ml) allspice
    1 frozen chopped banana

    Place all ingredients into blender in order listed. Blend until smooth, about 1 minute. Divide among serving glasses.

    Greek Turkey Burger Bites

    Ever thought about making burgers as an appetizer or as a potluck meal for friends and family? Try making your favourite burger into bite-sized portions. They might be small in size, but they won’t be small in flavour. These burgers also pair well with a Greek salad for a delicious mid-week lunch or dinner. Fresh is best Squeeze fresh lemon on patties while cooking to give them the fresh zing of citrus.
