Wellness Soldier cooks up lamb burgers
Cody Lindsay is on a new mission. While in uniform as a member of the Royal Canadian Navy, the former Canadian Armed Forces member learned how to cook for a large crew from a team with almost 100 years of combined experience in the kitchen. Nowadays, the Wellness Soldier dons a chef’s jacket on the daily and reaches an even larger audience. His mission is to take the knowledge he picked up in the burrows of a naval vessel and share healthy eating and living tips with veterans.
For Lindsay and his wife Kaleena, a nutritious diet is part of a five-point plan to help retired military members regain and retain a healthy lifestyle. The other areas of focus include fitness, meditation and medical cannabis, which is counted by the Lindsays as an integral element in a program designed to help get veterans “back to the basics.” Already, the system is finding support outside of military ranks. So too are the Wellness Soldier’s recipes!
This month, we have real treat – a Wellness Soldier original! From juices and smoothies to meat-lovers and vegetarian dishes, Lindsay has created some inspired recipes, both as part of a naval crew, and now on this new cannabis mission. Perfect for a summer BBQ, the Wellness Soldier’s lamb burgers, which come with a side of tzatziki sauce, are ready for you to dive into tonight. Enjoy!
