If you’ve been following my blog, you know I’ve been doing challenges with a local school to promote health and wellness. It all came to a super successful close on May 19th with the school being featured on CP24 and I was able to give AMAZING prizes to kids who participated in the challenge (which […]

Food Revolution 2017: Challenge #3

breakfast

I’ll keep this one simple. Challenge #3 is a Healthy Breakfast Challenge. Kids who eat breakfast tend to eat healthier overall and are more likely to participate in physical activities — two great ways to help maintain a healthy weight and keep their developing brains happy. Skipping breakfast can do all sorts of damage, not […]

As you now know, I’m an Ambassador for the Food Revolution here in Toronto. I’m running challenges with a local school and I thought…everyone should be in on these challenges!

Asparagus and Edamame Salad

What is the best time to start eating more greens? The first answer is a long time ago, but the second best answer is NOW. Greens are SO GOOD FOR YOU. I’ll spare you all the nitty gritty, but greens are full of fibre, iron, antioxidants like vitamin C, chlorophyll, and many many more vitamins […]

No matter the time of year, it’s important to eat more green, leafy vegetables. Canadian just don’t get enough of these delicious foods and there are more to choose from than just spinach, kale, and broccoli. Get out to your local farmers market or grocery store and buy something green. Check it out, chop it […]

Vegetable Lasagna

I’ve raved about pasta before. It’s no surprise that we eat pasta usually once a week. I have three kids and they will eat pasta which means I don’t have to deal with any fighting or complaining. We eat the regular spaghetti and meatballs, mac and cheese, rice noodles with veggies…the usual stuff. But it’s […]

Baked (but not baked) Beans

baked beans

I never grew up eating baked beans. I discovered them, as a lot of people do-as a convenience food in a can, full of yucky high fructose corn syrup and salt. International superstar They’re popular in the U.K., eaten as part of a full breakfast. Delicious, but usually made in a sugary tomato sauce and […]

The World’s Easiest Pancake recipe

My kids love pancakes (like most kids) but because of our busy schedule, they’re saved for lazy Sunday mornings (which are far and few between these days) or holidays. I love pancakes because you can sneak nutrition into them, or serve them with fruit and you know your kids will walk away with full, happy bellies. […]
