    Happy Victoria Day Weekend Everyone!

    In Canada, this weekend in known as the May 2-4 long weekend. With most long weekends, comes friends and family getting together. Most of these get-togethers, are centred around lots of foods and drinks.

    How do we normally feel after consuming the food and drinks available at these long-weekend events? Bloated. Guilty. Overall, usually not great. You may feel like you’re set back against your healthy eating goals.

    What if I were to tell you that you can actually mix in some great-for-you and delicious tasting drinks to help heal your gut and boost your GI health?
