beHealthy Superfood Diet contains seafood and chicken dishes and is great for anyone looking for creative ways to work more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes into their diet. Annie utilizes spices, herbs, and cooking techniques to enhance flavor. The focus is on creating appetizing dishes that are prepared with the minimum of fuss by using few ingredients that can be easily found in grocery stores that specialize in nutrient rich ingredients, for example, soy beans and quinoa. Despite the relative simplicity of these healthy dishes, they are still elegant enough to be served at dinner parties, especially the Crab Croquettes with Spicy Salsa, Grilled Chicken & Veggie Kebabs and Wasabi Crusted Salmon. Watts’ vegetable dishes are appealing and varied, including Salad with Raspberry Dressing, Cucumber and Dill Salad and Vegetable Rolls & Peanut Sauce. Watts’ desserts are equally appetizing, with Pumpkin Creme Brulees, Wild Berry Double Cream Crepes and Apricot Oat Cookies.
We are excited about Annies new book that focuses on whole foods. Annie has creatively provided us with a book that looks at eating and cooking whole foods that awakens our bodies and our relationship to food. - Fiona Devereaux, RD, Community Nutritionist for Aboriginal Health, Royal Jubilee Hospital.

Learn to Reduce Stress
Physical activity releases endorphins into your blood stream to reduce the level of cortisol, a fight or flight hormone that is released in response to stress.
Laughter releases endorphins that will give you an overall sense of well-being while relaxing your muscles.
Natural sunlight increases the production of serotonin, the happy hormone.
A simple way to alleviate tension and induce relaxation is by taking a bath in a tub of warm water with a few drops of lavender, tangerine or rose essential oil. Essential oils are potent, so when using essential oil for massage, blend 12 drops of essential oils with one ounce of sweet almond oil.
