It seems wrong to pair the words “holiday” and “stress” together because the very definition of the word holiday is “a day of festivity or recreation when no work is done”.  Whoever came up with that definition might not have had children or an extended family! As a kid I can remember the suspenseful and magical feeling when we counted down the days to Winter break, with anticipation of gifts and holiday treats. Well years later I realized the stress sometimes comes from having to make this magic happen. It’s a beautiful thing to watch, but it takes some serious… Read More

  Cold and flu season is here… when you hear these, only thoughts of dread follow! With young kids in school I know that it’s just a matter of time before they pass the cold like a game of hot potato but it’s a stuffy nose, burning eyes, congested chest potato and sooner or later one of the boys bring the potato home. It’s inevitable. Getting sick is miserable, but there is some value in challenging our children’s immune systems as this builds strength in the body so that when they are older they can fight off the bugs easier.… Read More
    img_1920 I kept my composure during the segment, but inside I was doing cartwheels!! This was one of those surreal feeling moments when I got to share a segment on The Marilyn Denis Show with someone who I’ve watched and admired for years! Jamie Oliver organically and passionately demonstrates his love for cooking real food and has put a huge spot light on how we can change our health and our children’s health with a focus on getting back to the basics, simply cooking. I had the INCREDIBLE task of putting Jamie (and the cutest crew of elementary students… Read More
img_1899 I bake a lot of “weird” things (according to my kids) and sometimes these weird things turn out really well. This one did. It started as a Halloween experiment where I was trying to get the “vampire blood’ look, but I think I’m going to add this to our monthly baking rotation. With beets, carrots and Medjool dates I am happy to add it to the kids lunch snacks. I added some chocolate chips because they’ll try anything with a chocolate chip on it. And it actually complimented the sweet earthy flavour of these ingredients combined. Beets are a supportive… Read More
30799-west-african-squash-cashew   Serving my 2 growing boys healthy food is one of my top priorities on my “Mom must-do list”. The most common barrier to checking this chore off my list is, of course, time. When there is a whole lot of life happening, as it is in all families, sometimes it is hard to construct a healthy meal every single night. When confronted with those busy evenings of late work schedules, kids activities and empty fridges, I don’t grab fast food from a drive through, but I will grab fast food from a grocery store. Here I can find some… Read More
img_1482 Okay there’s no voodoo in this brownie, but it’s pretty magical that you can turn three healthy ingredients into chocolate decadence. I’ve shared this recipe before and I’m doing it again in Jack-o-lantern form. It’s not going to end up in a trick or treat bag, but it’s just too easy (and cute) not to be passed around to all moms and dads looking to divert the kids attention from the junky junk candies and chocolates coming home in their trick or treat bags. My boys like anything that looks like chocolate; chocolate cake, chocolate bars, chocolate chips, chocolate chunks… Read More
