Monday, February 19th was family day in many parts of Canada, which got me thinking about families eating together.

Ellen, That’s Just Not Funny.

On Day 12 in my 14 Days of Wellness, I shared the intention that the food we eat becomes who we are. I wanted to share with you, too, as I know the new year is often a time where we resolve to take our health more seriously, eat better, lose unwanted fat and generally,…

Around this time last year, I shared a post on my favourite gift ideas. It received a lot of great feedback from people saying they used some of my suggestions much to the delight of their recipients. I wanted to share it again, in case you didn’t get a chance to see it last time.…
