The Avocado Zest is delicious. It has a fresh, lemon taste.  I drizzle it on my salads. I recommend it to anyone who wants a high quality oil with a hint of citrus for salads and fish.

Kid Tested and Approved!

As our last recipe for March’s Nutrition awareness month, we wanted to choose a meal the entire family would enjoy! We understand that it is hard to please everyone – especially the youngest family members who more often then not describe anything green as “Yucky”. This pasta dish has been kid tested and approved…even the green stuff!

Fusilli and Broccoli Recipe

Fusilli with Turkey and Broccoli

Turkey is a low-fat source of protein and one serving provides half of our daily requirement of Folic acid. Also a source of vitamins B, B1 and B6, turkey contains nutrients that help keep blood cholesterol down and protects against birth defects, cancer and heart disease.

Broccoli enjoys a reputation of a ‘miracle food’. In fact it packs more nutritional punch than any other vegetable. With vitamin C, vitamin A, Folic acid, calcium and fibre, this cruciferous (aka cancer fighting) vegetable is a nutrition superstar!

Another benefit of this dish is that it provides a healthy and kid-friendly supper in only 20 minutes. Click here for the recipe.
