Canada Food Guide is Under Review: Positive Changes Coming?

Many have been calling for a change to the Canada Food Guide, as the scientific evidence released over the years has changed what we know about food.

Is Your Diet Soda Deadly?

On my journey to better health, diet drinks were one of the last things I gave up. I loved drinking coke zero – and I was either addicted chemically, by habit, or both. But there was one other aspect that hooked me – actually, it hooks a lot of us: zero calories. Somewhere along the […]

Netflix Review: “What’s with Wheat”

    I find food trends fascinating, and I would be interested in getting a show of hands as to how many people have or have tried – heck even considered giving up wheat or gluten this year.

Pink Chocolate Coconut Bark 

You know how some people say “I have a sweet tooth”? Well I have sweet TEETH. That’s right – a whole mouthful. But as I have gotten older, the 5 cent candy aisle at the nearest convenience store just won’t cut it anymore. I want sweet, but I always want beneficial. I want “treat yourself”, […]

Plant Powered Pizzas – “Not-so-classic Margherita” 

Hello you all! Yes, I know this post is late – as it has normally been Plant Powered Pizza Friday – but this week, it just wasn’t working for me. If you follow me on Instagram, you already know why: Friday’s pizza was… mediocre at best. Heck, I’m being too easy on it: it was […]

Broiled Blood Orange with Coconut Cream and Black Tahini

I have to say, I feel pretty lucky that my S.O. has been willing to embark with me on this nutrition adventure over the last year. Most of the changes I’ve made, he’s more than willingly gone along with. We drink more, good quality water. We’ve eliminated dairy, and upped our whole foods. We eat […]
