Baby Superfood Smoothie
Jack enjoying his first smoothie! I introduced Jack to solid food 2 months ago, and it’s been an interesting experience so far. I mentioned in a previous post that I was going to try and avoid purees (as per the Baby Led Weaning method), but I’ve discovered over the last couple months that it’s […]
Eat Like You’re Pregnant Everyday
Throughout my pregnancy many people have asked me if I’ve changed my diet. Sorry to disappoint, but than a few crazy cravings at the beginning (Honey Nut Cheerios and popsicles) and no alcohol or unpasteurized foods, my diet has stayed the same. Pregnant or not, we should always incorporate a variety of healthy, whole foods […]
Miso Cod with Kale Soba Noodles
We all know that fish is something we should be incorporating into our diet on a regular basis, but I often hear that people have a hard time including fish into their weekly meals. Perhaps we like to play it safe and stick to tilapia and salmon, and we need some variety. It could be […]

It’s That Time of Year Again!
September & October in Ontario is grass-fed beef season. For those of you that don’t know grass-fed beef means that the cows only eat grass and whatever else they can find as they roam free in the pasture. Other cows are usually fed grain at the end to increase their weight & fat content. Organic […]
Inspiration Everywhere: Raw Beet Salad Recipe
Sorry for the break in posts – it’s been busy! We got back to Canada over a week ago, and our time has been filled with family, friends, pets…and laundry, un-packing, re-packing, errands and more laundry. We arrived at John’s cottage in Quebec on Saturday and I’ve been up to my eyeballs this week working […]
Healthy Pulled Pork Recipe
As I’ve mentioned before, I think it’s really important to keep your intake of red meat to a minimum (once/week maximum). Red meat can be high in saturated fats, it’s a source of heme-iron (too much can cause inflammation & cholesterol build-up) and it has an acidic effect in your body, which can cause the […]
Are your Vegetables Good for You?
In the last few posts I’ve mentioned the book “The End of Food” by Thomas Pawlick. One of the main things I took away from reading his book is that if we want the quality of our food to improve we all have to start taking steps in the right direction to make that happen. […]
