New Year, New You? Why You Don't Need Another Diet Resolution!

Another year, another sweet promise to lose weight and get healthy. “New year, new you!” - I hate this tag line, as though the ‘old you’ isn’t good enough, fit enough, successful enough or pretty enough. Don’t get me wrong, I agree that people can and should work towards positive change, for example, to become more active, save money, start meditating, and even improve one’s health.

I was looking to deliver the smokey flavour that comes with using ham or ham hocks, without actually having to use the animal source (because I am lazy and feel it's easier without meat, I too enjoy vegetarian meals, and so many of my clients are vegetarian). The key ingredient? Smoked paprika! We discovered this a few years ago, and it is a must-have on any spice rack. This recipe is simple, flavourful, and loaded with nutrients like fibre, folate, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, and protein. Ingredients:...
