Spaghetti Squash Recipe with Spinach, Feta & Basil White Beans
What a fun little low-carb recipe! Now, I’m not one to say that carbs are evil by any means, as they are defiantly an essential part of our diet.
Should you avoid eating soy-based foods?
Do they increase your risk for cancer?
How much is safe?
These are all questions I’ve gotten over the course of my nutrition classes that I run for cancer patients. It is also something I’ve wondered about for myself. As a vegetarian, I often look to soy as an alternative source of protein.
If you are a follower of my blog (btw, you are awesome) or know me in person, you would know that I have a passion for running. However, I have not made myself to be an outdoor runner in the Canadian winter.
You may be surprised to hear that we’re on the right track! As a population, we’re cutting back on shortening, beef and white flour. We’re eating more vegetables, fruit and yogurt as well. However there’s still room for improvement! We can eat less – less red meat, less cheese, less starches and less sweets.
This was a meal made during one of cooking classes for individuals living with cancer. The focus of the class had to do with experimenting with different herbs and spices to help cope with taste changes and food aversions that may happen during cancer/treatment. Some new flavours that were introduced to the class included cilantro, rosemary and ginger. It’s amazing the flavour dimensions that herbs and spices can add to your cooking, without necessarily adding a lot of calories. Enjoy the recipes below!
For me, running has always been a meditative act.
There is something uplifting about running along trails in the crisp evening with nothing but your thoughts and music playing in the background.
