Leek-Stuffed Mushroom Caps
Individual Four-Berry Crumble
Frozen berries make berry crumble possible year-round. Picked ripe and juicy, PC frozen berries are always flavourful and fresh.
Pain Perdu with Maple Blueberry Sauce
So-named because it can be made with stale bread that would otherwise be lost (perdu), this dish is a brunch classic. It’s low fat as is, but you can dress it up by serving with whipped cream and fresh strawberries if you like.
Whole Wheat Scones
This low fat treat doesn’t sacrifice flavour for reduced fat. Share with others within a day or so of eating, or freeze, as the lower fat level affects keeping quality.
Hearty Mushroom Barley Pilaf
Barley is high in fibre and low on the glycemic index, making it a great substitute for the usual white rice used in pilaf. Try this side dish with a roast instead of potatoes or rice.

A delicious and colourful way to get more healthful omega-3 fat in your family’s diet.

Salmon with Spinach Rice
This colourful meal-in-one dish is a smart choice for many reasons: it’s low in fat, a source of fibre, and easy on clean up. A source of omega-3, too!
