Let’s Welcome 2012!

I have been racking my brain about what to write. I thought about posting a maple syrup fondue (yet another amazing whole food dessert with no processed sugars) to play with the irony of all the New Years Resolutions floating around out there. It could be argued as brilliant or mean. Since I can’t make up which side of the fence I want to be on, I thought it would be better to write in the spirit of what I truly feel inside. This day has been a day of relaxation and gratefulness. So, I’ve decided that I wanted to take a moment to share some gratitude and blessings that I have had over the past year.

1. Most recently over Christmas, I was fortunate enough to make it home to Moose Jaw, SK to spend some time with my dad and his wife and her family. My sisters even made it home too! I sure miss my sisters. It’s been at least 5 years since I’ve made it home so it was a nice treat. I’m also very grateful for the lovely weather we had while we were there. The regular -30 was nowhere in sight and replaced with a very civilized -2 to 5 degrees Celcius (28 to 42 degrees F) Continue Reading →

Whole Food Kitchen Makeover Part 2: Stocking Your Real Food Kitchen

Today’s post is a continuation from Wednesday’s post on giving your kitchen a Whole Food Makeover. If you haven’t read that, start there first. So, now that you’ve cleaned out the kitchen of processed  food, you’re probably thinking, “Now what the heck do I eat?”

So, don’t worry about cost right now. I’ll provide a list of things you may want to have ready and on hand in your new kitchen.

How to Cut Out 13 Lbs of Processed Sugar From Your Diet in 1 Easy Step

Everyday we are faced with the decision of what we’re going to put in our bodies. We are all at different stages in our lives and sometimes the next step needs to be drastic when we’re trying to reach new health goals, while at other times it simply needs tweaking what we’re already doing or  starting out by making simple, lasting change one baby step at a time. Only you know which of these phases you are currently in. I wanted to share something so simple, so easy to do, that some of you may even think, “Duh, that’s a no brainer.” But to others it may just be a first step in reducing processed sugars from your diet.

Now ideally, getting rid of all sugars may be the best for our health, but not a lot of fun, nor overly realistic for most of us. I love a piece of cake from time to time. Some people take in copious amounts of sugar, such as drinking 2 or 3 Coke’s a day, followed by an afternoon donut and a bowl of ice cream before bed. To this person, eliminating sugar entirely may sound like a death sentence. Hence the baby steps.
