Crunching Numbers On a Bathroom Scale

I am not a fan of trendy diets. I don't care what celebrity has had overwhelming success with a certain way of eating. Don't even get me started on smarmy supplement companies who prey on people's insecurities. Over the years I too have struggled with body image issues. I've watched some fad diets come and [...]

Welcoming More Veggies Into Your Life

It can be a bit of a challenge to fit enough veggies into your diet once the colder months come along. During the warmer weather, we are inclined to choose salad, dive into raw veggies and dip and make a nice cold smoothie filled with greens. Once the cooler weather blows in, those delicious options [...]

Cooking Oils 101

Let me start by saying that there is good value to using some fat in our cooking. While I will be the first to consider if a recipe can do with less fat or even swap some of it out with an alternative like applesauce in baking, a bit of healthy fat is really good [...]

Creating Adventurous Eaters

I clearly remember thinking that I had successfully raised adventurous eaters by the time both of my children hit 2 years old. They loved sweet potatoes and broccoli, often asking for more. I had also been pretty successful at avoiding refined sugars, artificial food colouring and flavours. I took comfort in the fact that their [...]

Resolution Rescue 2021

Resolution Rescue 2021 I decided a few years ago that I was finished with resolutions. In fact, this may be the only resolution that I have had long term success with! It isn't that I don't have aspirations for the year ahead, but resolutions always left me feeling worse about myself. The trouble with resolutions [...]

Say Goodbye to Food Guilt

Have you ever really stopped to listen to how you talk or even think about food? Have you ever eaten a decadent piece of cake and then felt bad about it? What about a bag of chips that you vowed to only have a couple of and then discover your hand in an empty bag? [...]

Embrace the Season

Without a doubt, this is the most unusual Christmas I have ever experienced and I am finding myself at a crossroads. Perhaps you are right here with me at this little junction in the road? I've resigned myself to the fact that I can either spend my efforts moping about the way Christmas isn't this [...]

Tackling the Take-Out Dilemma

Confession: Let me be the first to say that I love a night off in the kitchen. It is a real treat to have someone else prepare the meal and then have a quick tidy after supper. And now, even more so than before, our local restaurants and food shops need our support to stay [...]

The Ins and Outs of Pressure Cooking

One of the hot topics I find myself often chatting about with others is electric pressure cookers. I find myself discussing whether or not they should take the leap and purchase a pressure cooker, or sometimes they have already have one and now they aren't sure what to do with it. Let me tell you, [...]

Curating Family Traditions

Family traditions are important, but sometimes it is hard to know how to begin when curating your own family traditions. In our home, some traditions are well defined - like getting to open your stocking on Christmas morning before breakfast, while others largely go unspoken but are somehow known like Friday night family movie night.
