One of my most favorite parts of being a Culinary Nutritionist is having great companies approach me to develop recipes, review products & assist with their marketing. It gives me the chance to get into my kitchen, feel out the product & create some approachable recipes.
Last week I was approached by Life Choices Foods & Yamba Yogurt, two great Canadian companies to develop new recipes and review some of their top selling products. Last Sunday ended up so nice that a barbeque with some friends seem to be the best option to trial some new recipes and grab some feedback from my fellow foodies!
LIFE CHOICES FOOD:
Gluten Free Organic Chicken Burgers, Gluten Free Organic Angus Beef Burgers, Hormone & Antibiotic Free Beef Sausages, Bare & Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets, Sustainable, Wild & Multigrain Fish Sticks & Hormone & Antibiotic Free All Beef Sausages
Plain, Blueberry & Strawberry Yogurt (All Natural)
Here's what I made, included are all the recipes when applicable! Yay!
