S.O.S – Save Our Summer by Saving Seeds

It’s here but I’m in denial. September. Despite the abundant harvest, lovely cooler nights and the promising show of blazing autumn trees I’m kicking and screaming my way out of summer. I refuse to admit that soon I will have to trade my sandals and white shorts ...

Good Behaviour Lunchboxes

Thursday 1 September 2011 . (0)

What goes into the belly at lunch predicts the afternoon’s behaviour and focus.  It is just that simple.  The wrong lunch can make the blood sugar soar and then plummet which means mood swings.  Nutrition aside (I mean, everyone knows to avoid sweets and stock up on veg, right?) there is a whole bunch of.

Pro Probiotics

Thursday 1 September 2011 . (2)

I am a big pro-biotic fan.  As a kid, I had terrible tummy issues that left me hospitalized before the age of 2.  I was constantly in pain and had bathroom troubles in one direction or the other.  I doubt it is a co-incidence that I landed up as a nutritionist. It is a surprise. Continue Reading…

Should you try a new DIET?

Monday 22 August 2011 . (0)

Diet trends change with the wind and our entire population blows with them.  When did we start trusting the “news” and “studies” more than our own instincts?  As a nutritionist I am asked to debunk food and diet myths all the time and am respectful that each person’s belief system is a delicate, hard earned.

Vitamin D “news”?

Tuesday 16 August 2011 . (1)

Oh, boy. Here it comes, I can feel it! “There’s a new study out saying that Vitamin D causes skin cancer, can you comment?” I am really bad at not rolling my eyes and clucking my tongue.  So if you still want me to comment, I will but it’s going to happen (maybe even with. Continue Reading…

Convenience Foods Redefined:Preserved Harvest

Monday 8 August 2011 . (1)

One of the great innovations of the 20th century was convenience food. Who could forget freeze-dried coffee, TV dinners, powdered mashed potatoes, Jiffy Pop and Space Food Sticks? Canned and frozen foods got busy moms on the go a head start on dinner and they were especially great for moms like mine who were stranded. Continue Reading…

Simple Ways to Reduce Sodium

Monday 8 August 2011 . (0)

Many cultures consume more sodium than the typical North American but they don’t seem to have the same effect.  It could be because they are not consuming salt from package and processed foods (we get 88% of our salt this way).  They are using it in dishes that contain far more vegetables which contain the.
