A few weeks ago I discovered the True North Salmon Company – a North American company that sells hormone & antibiotic-free, sustainably caught, farmed Atlantic salmon.

Beat Seasonal Allergies Naturally!

I absolutely love the weather right now. If you live in Southern Ontario you’ll know what I’m talking about. It’s been in the mid-twenties and sunny for days, and I don’t think anybody can quite believe it. Most people are outside enjoying the weather except for the poor allergy sufferers.  My husband has seasonal allergies, […]

Chocolate Truffle Pudding

What do you get when you combine black beans, chia seeds & organic sweet potato baby food? A chocolate dessert that is not only healthy, but so delicious. I know, it doesn’t sound appetizing, but I’ve made it twice already and trust me, it’s a keeper. If you love chocolate, ice cream, pudding, fudge or truffles […]

My Nutrition Evolution

It’s been one year since I started my nutrition course, and I’m almost half-way through the course materials. I started thinking about what I’ve learned over the past year, and how it’s affected me, when John came back with some groceries the other night. His food choices made me realize that I’m not the only […]

Photo Source John and I were at the St. Lawrence Market this past Saturday picking up some wild salmon for dinner, a yummy cheese to pair with Pinot Noir, and some chia seeds (we seem to be going through a lot of these little suckers lately).

Don’t Stress!

As you’ve probably noticed, I’m not posting as much as I normally do. That’s because work & life are crazy busy, and unfortunately that means my nutrition studies and my blog get put on the back burner. Being busy is a funny thing because there’s a fine line you cross when your busyness (is that […]
