Shared a NEW recipe on the blog today for a Kale Pesto Grilled Chicken with Zucchini Noodles, plus a whole 'how to' guide on the best way to make zoodles. I love using seasonal produce to come up with fun new recipe ideas. All of the produce in this dish came directly from @hendrickfarm - talk about shopping and eating local! #redsrecommendations

No trip to the @ottawafarmmkt is complete without a trip to my favourite food cart @raonkitchen! Love their bibimbap so much, it's my favourite Sunday lunch. #redsrecommendations

What a Saturday! Had such a blast competing in my second ever CrossFit competition with @mathersjohn today, AND we took second place in our division! ๐Ÿฅˆ
I shared most of the day in my story so check it out if you want to see more. Now time to celebrate with some good food and some much needed wine. ๐Ÿท #redsrecommendations

Had the best time talking on the panel at the @fallforlocal Ottawa talk last week!There is nothing I love more than talking to people about real food, shopping local and eating local. And of course a few laughs along the way never hurt anybody. โ˜บ๏ธ #redsrecommendations

I hope it's warm and sunny wherever you are today because you are going to want to treat yourself to the NEW recipe I just shared on the blog for these Strawberry Smoothie Popsicles! ๐Ÿ“ Made with only theee ingredients, these popsicles are sweet and creamy without any added sugar, and are the perfect treat on a hot summer day. #redsrecommendations

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling real up beet today. The sun is shining so brightly it almost made my heart skip a beet this morning. Plus, I've been listening to lots of music while working today, some real sweet beets. What could be better, you ask? Beets me! Well, now that I think of it, perhaps a musical pairing of this beet salad and the classic Michael Jackson hit 'Beat It'? No problem, that's in my Instagram story for you already. ๐Ÿ‘Œ
This French Lentil and Beet Salad is so good, I'd be willing to bet you won't find one that beets it. (Last one, I promise.) Recipe will be on the blog tomorrow! #redsrecommendations

Made a (wet) trip to the farmer's market with my mom this morning to check out all of the local goodies. She is most definitely the person that gave me my love for food and nutrition so it's always fun going on foodie adventures with her. ๐Ÿ˜ Hope you're all having a fabulous Saturday! #redsrecommendations

Ladies who lunch @purekitchenottawa today! ๐Ÿ‘ญ I went with the Fresh salad and added falafel and avocado. Because always avocado (and falafel). #redsrecommendations

Enjoying a very late lunch/early dinner after an afternoon workout @crossfitbytown before I head to the @cflredblacks game tonight. I'm eating a bunch of food I made for the blog this week, just paired it all together in a bowl. I've got some arugula, some of my French Lentil & Beet Salad, and some Greek Lamb Meatballs with homemade tzatziki. (They will be on the blog next week.) I always eat everything that I make for the blog, I would never share anything I wouldn't eat myself. With the exception of some baked goods, I often share some with friends so I don't eat the whole batch myself. ๐Ÿ™ˆ #redsrecommendations

You guys, today was the best day because we got a PUPPY yesterday! ๐Ÿถ Oh my lanta, so crazy, so fun and so awesome all at the same time. I shared little Arthur in my story so be sure to check it out, he's just the cutest little goldendoodle you ever did see!
Because I've spent my day trying to work/train a puppy/trying to work with a puppy/trying to figure out how to train a puppy, I'm keeping dinner really light and simple tonight. I made some zucchini noodles and I'm going to top them with a simple sauce and call it a night. I'm going to share a "how to" post on zucchini noodles this week on the blog so stay tuned for that. #redsrecommendations

Today's lunch๐ŸดReally simple combination of kale cooked in bacon fat with garlic and sea salt, leftover curried chicken kabobs from last night's dinner, half of an avocado, and some lemon juice to help brighten things up.
I have been laughing all morning since my girlfriend @elisakurylowicz shared a cooking video we did together on her Instagram story. If you have not watched it yet, I highly suggest you do. There is a little preview in my story and the whole video is in her story. I personally think we are hilarious. ๐Ÿ’ #redsrecommendations

Dinner is served!๐ŸดAbout to chow down on this Mediterranean Cod Bake tonight and I'm pretty excited about it. I used @trulocal cod and lots of fresh seasonal tomatoes and herbs. Stay tuned, recipe will be on the blog tomorrow! #redsrecommendations

Back in Ottawa after a great weekend visiting my parents, and it's lamb curry on the menu for dinner tonight. ๐ŸดI wanted a hearty meal after a full day of travel and this slow cooking curry makes the perfect Sunday night feast. I've made this dish a few times now, just trying to perfect the spice combination and then I'll share it on the blog! ๐Ÿ˜#redsrecommendations

Back home visiting my parents this weekend and first stop on the itinerary was food obviously. ๐Ÿ’ We went to a super cute cafe in the area, and I opted for their ginormous house salad with a bajilion things and it was perfect. Hope you all enjoy your weekend! #redsrecommendations

You guyyyyyys, I just shared a NEW recipe on the blog for a super simple Summer Gazpacho and it's just as fresh and clean as it looks. If the idea of cold soup is weird to you, that's ok because it is, and it was to me too, but by golly is it ever tasty. No need to turn on the stove on a warm summer day, just pop some stuff in the blender and you're good to go! Check out the link I profile for the recipe, just in time for tomato season. ๐Ÿ… #redsrecommendations

After a fabulous long weekend I'm back to work making some recipes for the blog, but not without a little iced coffee and sunshine. โ˜€๏ธ I blended up some cold brew with coconut milk, vanilla extract and maple syrup, and it's really hitting the spot. Hope you are all having an amazing long weekend! ๐Ÿ˜˜ #redsrecommendations

After 1,374 attempts I've finally made a gluten-free and grain-free Lemon Loaf that is worth sharing ๐Ÿ™Œ
If you've been watching my stories you'll know that creating this loaf has been the ongoing saga in my life for the past week, but after many failed attempts I've finally nailed it. I still wouldn't call myself a baker, but I'm quite pleased with what I've created because this Lemon Loaf is as tart, sweet and fluffy as the real deal making it the perfect afternoon treat for anyone to enjoy. Check out the link for this scrumptious recipe is in my profile and enjoy! ๐Ÿ‹ #redsrecommendations

No better way to celebrate strawberry season, and a Sunday, than with a little treat and this Strawberry Rhubarb Crips does just that. I shared this recipe last summer, and although it's an oldie, it's such a goodie; it's gluten-free and sweetened naturally with honey and vanilla. ๐Ÿ“ #redsrecommendations

Shared three NEW posts on the blog this week including this Roasted Rhubarb Salad with goat cheese and walnuts, some Marinated Steak Kabobs with Cilantro Sauce (see yesterday's post), and my latest blog post about How To Control Your Cravings, definitely worth a read.
Real talk, this Roasted Rhubarb Salad is wayyy better than I expected it to turn out, I had it for lunch yesterday, dinner last night and lunch again today. It's that good! Although rhubarb is pretty tart on its own, roasting it in a little honey makes it deliciously soft and sweet, almost like adding fresh berries to a salad. Highly suggest you give it a try. #redsrecommendations

Late breakfast today after an early start to the morning! Today is an off day from the gym so I woke up early today to finish a blog post and get a little work done, before going for a walk, so I'm only getting to breakfast now. I decided to mix things up from my typically savoury route and have some oatmeal with cinnamon, frozen raspberries I melted a little, pumpkin seeds and a drizzle of honey. Total winner. ๐Ÿ‘Œ #redsrecommendations
