A New Year new us, right? (At least that's what we've heard over and over, right?). Cliche or not, there's good reason why - heading into the new year is always a good time to reflect on our health, and what we can do to improve our overall health. Bone diseases such as osteoporosis may not get as much attention as heart disease, cancer, and other major diseases, but they are common, and in all seriousness, they take a large toll on the population’s overall health status and
DISCLAIMER: This post was developed in sponsored partnership with the California Strawberry Commission; however, as always, all opinions are genuine. Just 8 strawberries a day – sounds pretty simple right? We busy humans tend to like ‘simple’; especially when it comes to making eating healthy a little easier. Strawberries are not only low in sugar and calories, they also provide a unique combination of essential nutrients, dietary fibre and phytochemicals. One serving of eigh
Research shows that incorporating less meat, and more plant-based meals into your diet can contribute to a wide range of health benefits, including reducing the risk of chronic disease, better digestion, and even weight loss. Going completely plant-based is doable for some people, however, the reality is that eating fully plant-based is not realistic for many others (due to food preferences, lifestyle, etc.). And no judgement here! People have eating habits and preferences fo
With 5g fibre, 8g protein, 4g sugar and 17g net carbs (full nutrition facts below), these muffins make perfect low-glycemic snack, or even a quick on the go breakfast. You can substitute the raspberries in this recipe for blueberries or another type of berry if you prefer. You can use the recipe for regular-sized muffins or mini-muffins.

The Holidays are an exciting time of year; lots of joy, get-togethers, and traditions. However, with the Holidays often comes an over-abundance of high calorie foods such as baked goods, sauces, gravies, chips, beverages, etc. Research shows that the average person will gain 7-10 lbs over the holidays!! Yes, it does add up, which is why it’s important to have some tips and strategies in your pocket to help with not over-eating. Tip # 1 – Focus on keeping weight stable instead
Summer is coming to an end, and if you're like me, you're feeling like...WHERE did it even go?
We ate, we drank (well many of us did anyway), we relaxed, and then we ate some more. And now it’s time to get back on track (sorry...I'm not the happiest about it either!). The reality for many is that September and October can be one of the most stressful times of the year. The new school year and/or coming off of summer vacation brings changes to routines, homework, the start o

Now they are becoming more mainstream and used as snacks, and that’s okay, it’s just important to use them in the right way depending on your goals. Hey you, speaking of goals. Need some help and support in reaching your health and wellness goals? We all need a little support sometimes! For a limi
Do we all know the dreaded feeling of being ‘hangry’? I think we do, but just in case... Urban Dictionary definition (because that counts right?): “When you are so hungry that your lack of food causes you to become angry, frustrated or both. An amalgum of hungry and angry invented to describe that feeling when you get when you are out at a restaurant and have been waiting over an hour to get the meal that you have ordered”.
My definition of being hangry: That point where yo
