Lentil and Arugula Salad

Lentils are a great source of fibre and very low in fat. They are relatively quick to cook, and this salad can be eaten as either a main dish or a side dish. Feel free to add more or less of any of the salad ingredients as you like. I sometimes like to just put…

Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Adding a roasted red pepper to a classic hummus is a great way to add an extra serving of veggies to your snack.  This also adds a little sweetness, which is a huge hit with my kids. I used very little garlic so that it’s child friendly but if you prefer more garlic, go ahead and…
