    A breakfast classic made even healthier with the addition of cinnamon. Research suggests daily consumption of cinnamon may improve blood sugar levels, insulin sensitivity and blood pressure in those with type 2 diabetes.

    1/2 cup (125 ml) sliced frozen strawberries, thawed
    1 cup (250 ml) water
    1/2 tsp (2 ml) cinnamon
    1/2 cup (125 ml) large flake oats
    3 tsp (15 ml) almond butter

    Place thawed strawberries in serving bowl.

    In large pot, bring water and cinnamon to a boil. Stir in oats. Reduce heat to a simmer. Allow to cook until desired thickness is reached, stirring occasionally.

    Remove from heat and immediately spoon cooked oats over strawberries. Stir in almond butter and garnish with another dash of cinnamon if desired.

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    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.
