Propageons le bon : comment faire

Il est temps de changer notre façon de penser en matière d’alimentation.

La Présidente et Fondatrice Sylvie Rochette a créé Épicure pour offrir à sa famille des repas rapides et faciles, composés d’ingrédients sains. Nos produits n’ont jamais contenu, et ne contiendront jamais d’ingrédients que la Présidente Sylvie ne servirait pas elle-même à sa famille.

Voilà pourquoi nous sommes si emballés de lancer le mouvement Du vrai. Vite fait.!

Notre mission est d’inspirer les gens pressés à bien s’alimenter pour mener une vie saine et épanouissante, et de savourer ces moments du quotidien qui font de nous les individus, parents, mentors et leaders que nous sommes.

Le mouvement Du vrai. Vite fait. vise à encourager les gens à manger de vrais aliments. Cela veut dire savoir d’où provient notre nourriture, cuisiner avec des ingrédients authentiques, limiter le sucre, le gras et le sodium – et déguster toutes les saveurs.

Le but de ce mouvement est de donner à tout le monde les outils et l’inspiration nécessaires pour faire de petits changements vers une vie plus saine. En changeant ce que contient notre assiette, nous pouvons changer le monde.

3 Tips for Chilling Out This Summer

Squeeze in all the summer fun on the patio in style. Chill, sip, and relax with iced drinks and treats within the comfort of your own home—plus you can create your own favourite flavour combinations.

Try these tips and tricks for perfect al fresco frosty delights:

1- Tea tango!

“Kids Party” Iced Tea

The secret’s out; simply heat and steep plenty of tea in water in a pan, or pour boiling water over tea in a jug, following the recipe directions.

Cool before chilling, and add ice cubes and water—or strain hot steeped tea over ice cubes, adjusting the strength by topping up with water.

Turn iced tea up a notch by stirring in fruit juice, refreshing fruit, and ice cubes laced with summer’s offerings.

2- Get frosty!

Really Simple Infused Ice Cubes

Cool a scorching summer’s day with frosty ice cubes. Create, make, and have fun with your own refreshing flavour combos. Freeze tea, juice, and summer’s bounty of fruit.

3- Pop an ice pop!

Really Simple Infused Ice Cubes

Let your leftovers take centre-stage. No big words, no long lists—turn tea, juice, the last handful of fruit, and smoothies into a healthier version of store-bought ice pops. Save waste and your wallet!

3 Tips for the Best Summer Burgers

Rule the grill this summer with big juicy burgers! What makes this classic so incredible is the versatility. Create a brand new burger every night with endless flavour combinations.

Here are 3 tips to keep things exciting throughout patio season:

1 – Swap out the fatty patty!

Try a healthier alternative to ground beef like lean ground beef, ground turkey, ground chicken, or grilled fish. For the veggie-inclined, use lentils or other legumes.

2 – Dress it up!

Go tried-and-true with your toppings, or get a little crazy! We’re lovin’ fresh veggies like red peppers and spinach, a spoonful of our Guacamole and Salsa, cheesy flavours like bleu or brie, and even a drizzle of our fiery Sriracha. And, of course, don’t forget mustard (Honey or Sweet & Spicy) and our Big Burger Sauce!

3 – Swap the bun!

A bun by any other name would taste as good! Mix it up with a gluten-free bun, pretzel bread, or even a large lettuce leaf.

You won’t believe what you can do with the Bread Dippers!

Have you met the three musketeers of summer: the Bread Dippers? They are your answer to fast, no-cook flavour this season, and a great trio for any occasion.

Stock up on bread and pair with a new dipping buddy. Release the taste of the Mediterranean when you add Balsamic Vinegar and oil.

Here are some ideas for enjoying their incredible versatility:

  1. Enjoy with veggies for an easy, low-fat snack on busy days.
  2. Bring the ristorante home: drizzle over thin crust pizza as a finishing sauce, or over pasta.
  3. Layer the flavour with your favourite dips — the bold taste brings out the smooth side of hummus or bean dips.
