It is February and love is in the air! February is all about making that heart happy, and nothing makes the heart happier than some healthy fats.

Docere Wellness Presents Easy Peasy Greek Salad

This month I bring you two of my favourite (very easy) heart healthy recipes!

Olives and olive oil are a great source of a monounsaturated fat called oleic acid. This fat provides great anti-inflammatory qualities. If you’ve heard of the numerous health benefits of the Mediterranean diet it is largely due to the fat that this diet includes many olives/olive oil and other healthy fats.

Easy Peasy Greek Salad

3 cups Cherry Tomatoes

1 Cucumber

1/4 cup Red Onion (finely diced)

1 cup Pitted Kalamata Olives (chopped)

3 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

 

Cut cherry tomatoes in half, dice cucumber and red onion, mix all together in a bowl. Add Balsamic vinegar and olive oil season with salt and pepper. Mix and enjoy!

Happy New Year!

Hope everyone enjoyed some time with friends and family over the holidays!

I always like to start the new year with a kick start cleanse to get back into routine. Healthy eating along with lots of water and fiber to flush out any toxins our body has been exposed to are key pieces to ensuring the best for your body. So enjoy some recipes below.

Hemp Crusted Trout

1/4 cup Hemp Seeds

2 tsp Italian Seasoning

1 tsp Nutritional Yeast

1/4 tsp Sea Salt

2 Rainbow Trout Fillet

2 tbsp Dijon Mustard

½ Lemon (sliced into wedges)

Preheat the oven to 400°F (204°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine the hemp seeds, Italian seasoning, nutritional yeast and salt.

Place the trout fillets on the prepared baking sheet and pat dry with a paper towel. Smear the Dijon mustard evenly on to the top of the fillets.

Spoon the hemp seed mixture on top of the mustard coating and press down with the back of the spoon to ensure the hemp seeds stick to the fish.

Bake for about 9 minutes or until fish is cooked through and flakey.

Serve with fresh lemon wedges and season with additional salt if needed. Enjoy!
