My Favourite Winter Comfort Foods

In Canada, we’re now entering the coldest and most dreary time of the year. The holidays are now behind us. Personally, I would love to fast-forward to spring, as I’m not the most cold-adapted person!

This weekend, I was craving comfort foods. Comfort foods to me are warm foods but also foods that have some nostalgia to them. What do comfort foods mean to you?

Plant-Based Meal Prep for Bone Health

Today I’m highlighting National Osteoporosis Month, as it is quite common – Osteoporosis affects 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men in their lifetime!  

How can we reduce our risk for osteoporosis? Diet and lifestyle play a huge role. However, it’s not just the calcium from dairy food that matter. There are other surprising foods in the plant-based world that can benefit bone health!

Gluten-Free, Plant-Based Meal Prep Sunday

Gluten as been a hot topic for some time in the recent years. Myself, I have had the discussion around the decision to cut out gluten or not, with many, many people.

While I could write a lengthy discussion on this topic, I think you should first check out this article that I wrote a few years ago.  To sum it up, there has been an increase in celiac disease among the population, but we have also developed an increased tendency to rely on self-diagnosis and eliminate gluten from our diets.

No- Cook Meal Prep Sunday

The meal prep “theme” was inspired by the fact…that I couldn’t use my stove this weekend!

We couldn’t use our stove because it had to be moved for backsplash tiling to be done (which I had the hardest time picking out – anyone else?) We couldn’t move it back yet, as the tiles were just grouted…but here we are with the perfect oppotunity for a “No Cook Meal Prep Sunday”!
