(Yeasty) King of spades

Monday 31 January 2011 . (10)

TweetTheresa wanted us to visit a health-food store this week. She gently explains what to expect upon entering. I am a bit surprised that this explanation is needed. Even me – a pop-guzzling, macaroni and cheese eating, chemical cleaning sprayer, disposable diaper purchaser – has been into one. What’s great is that health food stores. Continue Reading…

Caffeine has limits?!

Monday 31 January 2011 . (0)

TweetHealth Canada recommends no more than 300 mg of caffeine each day for women and slightly more for men.  It’s a pretty smart guideline but it’s really easy to hit before you know it!

The weighting list

Sunday 30 January 2011 . (3)

TweetTraditionally, the new year is a time in which many people turn their attention to weight loss.  I, however, have become a little jaded by that particular resolution.   Over the course of my life I have tried just about every diet in existence: low-calorie, low-carb, low-fat and low self-esteem, usually with the same result: .

TweetAlthough all girls’ schools can be crazy and dramatic, when someone is in need of a friend, about 10 show up.  Here’s what happened today… After first period, full of whining and complaining about monthly cramps my friend and I traveled to history class in spite of her discomfort.  Once we sat down, her feelings.

Turkey Tortellini Salad

Saturday 29 January 2011 . (0)

TweetCome on, admit it, you have pasta at least twice a week.  At least this way, it will be whole wheat pasta that is cheese filled for extra fibre and protein.  Tossing in your own tomatoes instead of tomato sauce helps you control the salt and the lean turkey you cooked yesterday bumps up the.
