How To Increase Energy Levels And Stabilize Your Mood Using Food

  Stable blood sugar levels are important for everyone, not just people with diabetes. When our blood sugar levels are stable, we have stable energy, stable moods and our hunger remains under control.

Makeover Monday: Taco Seasoning

Tacos were my absolute favourite food growing up. However, it wasn't until I had finished 5 years of nutrition schooling/interning that I had taken the time to read the back of that little package.

How to Choose a Prenatal Supplement – Part 1

This past May I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend the Nutrition and Health Conference put on by the Arizona Centre for Integrative Medicine where I was first introduced to the work of medical doctor Victoria Maizes. Dr. Maizes focuses much of her work on fertility, environmental toxins and their impact on the body and women’s ability to conceive. After returning home and diving into research…
