 TThis spicy hummus is topped with crushed red pepper, feta cheese, and olive oil. A healthy, easy snack with crackers or veggies!
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbs. tahini
  • 1 squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • cayenne to taste (I would start small with a ¼ teaspoon)
  1. Put chickpeas, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, salt, and cayenne in a food processor. Process until thick paste forms.
  2. Add the oil (streaming it in while the food processor is running seems to work best) and continue to add 1 tbs. of water at a time, until the consistency smooth and spreadable.
  3. Sprinkle extra cayenne on top for more spice, and feta to cool things down!

 A quick word about tahini: it’s sesame paste. You can buy it at Cub or other run-of-the-mill grocery stores (just ask a knowledgeable salesperson to help you find it). It costs about 5-10$ for a jar, and the jar will last you for many batches of hummus. If you don’t have it and don’t want to buy it, use peanut butter or omit it altogether.

5-minute magic green sauce

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cup packed parsley and cilantro leaves (combined)
  • 1 jalapeño, ribs and seeds removed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • juice of one lime (or two – get lots of limey goodness in there!)
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup pistachios (you can sub other nuts – see notes)
  1. Pulse all ingredients – except pistachios – in a food processor until incorporated.
  2. Add pistachios and pulse until mostly smooth (depends on what consistency you want).
  3. Serve as a dip, spread, or sauce — or add additional water or oil to thin the sauce for use as a dressing or a marinade.
I did make this with other types of nuts like walnuts and almonds and it worked just fine, but the taste wasn’t as good IMHO. If you can find shelled pistachios, it’s worth the splurge!

Nutrition Magic Green Sauce

5 minute kale pesto

  • 2 cups torn kale (no stems) and parsley, combined
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (more to taste)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • juice of one lemon
  • ¼ to ½ cup raw almonds
  1. Pulse the kale, oilve oil, salt, garlic, and lemon juice in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Add the almonds and pulse until the almonds are ground to desired consistency.
  3. Serve with pizza, pasta, crackers, eggs, salads, soup, sandwiches, etc.

I ended up using about 1½ cups kale + ½ cup parsley. But I’ve made this many times with just about any combination of greens, whether JUST kale, kale and spinach, kale and other herbs… it is a very flexible recipe so adjust the ingredients and quantities depending on what you have on hand. A traditional pesto flavor profile would include basil, but when I made it with basil, I didn’t really love it. Go figure. Just make it however you like is what I’m saying here.

If you don’t want this to be vegan, no probs. Just add a handful of Parmesan into the mix and YUM.

Also really really really delicious = using spicy almonds. I just bought some from a co-op that were already seasoned and spiced and used them in place of the raw almonds.

friendly, gut-healing bacteria and yeast which:
-fight off the growth of harmful bacteria and yeast
-promote a healthy digestive system
-strengthen the immune system
-heal the gut by restoring gut flora (especially important after taking antibiotics!)

-detoxify your body, ridding it of toxins
-prevent and treat diseases

Fermented foods/drinks are superior to probiotic pills because they:

-cost less: generally, 1-2 bites/sips contain as many probiotics as a whole pill

-are more easily assimilated into your body because of their Real Food form

-contain plenty of vitamins, enzymes and healing acids as well as probiotics

Did you know that your body actually contains more bacterial cells than it does human cells?  Amazing!

Your gut contains about 3lb of bacterial cells, all of which are extremely important to your body’s overall physical, mental and emotional well-being!

According to Hippocrates, father of modern medicine, “All disease begins in the gut.”

You need tons of probiotics to keep your immune system strong and able to fight off intruders, especially after taking antibiotics (which kill the good along with the bad).

Not only do probiotics balance out your gut, but they also help to detoxify your body, getting rid of toxins that have built up over the years, and help you to heal from various ailments with their amazing enzymes, healing acids and food-based vitamins.

Fermented foods/drinks are not only a delicious way to get probiotics into your body, but they are also cheaper and more readily assimilated into your body than probiotic pills are, because of their Real Food form.

🍔 This is a simple, delicious way to incorporate important probiotics into your diet! Spread this old-style dijon on to your sandwich, burger, or pair with meat/fish. 🥪

Not only will your taste buds fall in love, but because your gut health affects your overall health, this mustard will help your immune system, digestion and much more. (Check out my website and Google to learn about the amazing benefits of probiotics.)

Bacon Brussels Sprouts Gratin

Gluten Free Regina is an online resource for people visiting or living in Regina, who would like information on different places to eat in and around the area. In this blog we share a recipe for Brussels Sprouts.


Brussels Sprouts are one of our favorite veggies, in spite of the fact that they don’t have the best reputation. We typically chalk up people’s distaste for the green veggie to not knowing just how delicious it can be – roasting is basically the only way to go – and therefore not realizing how great it is, and we try to do our parts to show everyone what a great ingredient it is. Here, we took some lightly roasted Brussels (gotta get a little color on them) and then made a creamy, cheesy, flavorful gratin to showcase them and make everyone fall in love with them…you need to try this!

The key here is roasting your sprouts ahead of time. Not only does this ensure that your veggies will be perfectly tender by the time they’re cooked in the gratin and come out of the oven, but roasting them gives an amazing flavor that takes everything up a notch. Add to that the crumbled bacon, cheese, and rosemary, and you’ve got yourself a side dish that’ll steal the show. At least that’s what happened at our dinner!

Brussels Sprouts Gratin

45 minutes to prepare serves 6





  • 1 1/2 pounds brussels sprouts, halved
  • 8 oz. bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup fontina cheese, grated, optional
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons extra‑virgin olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 sprig rosemary, minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste



  1. Preheat oven to 400º F.Toss Brussels sprouts in olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Place them in a large baking dish and roast for 15‑20 minutes, or until semi‑softened.
  2. Toss Brussel sprouts with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Place them in a large baking dish and roast for 15‑20 minutes, or until semi‑softened.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together egg, heavy cream, rosemary, garlic powder, onion powder and red pepper flakes (if using), then stir in cheeses.
  4. Remove Brussel sprouts from oven and add 3/4 bacon to the baking dish. Pour cheese mixture over the top and stir everything together, then top with remaining bacon.
  5. Reduce oven temperature to 350º, return the baking dish to oven and bake for 20‑25 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and just set.
