By | Entree, Recipes | No Comments

So often we prepare particular foods simply because it’s a habit or we feel as though we would be missing something if they weren’t on our plate (think starchy carbohydrates: pasta, rice, bread, potatoes, etc.) They can be filler foods that aren’t overly nutrient dense but we eat them regularly anyway because they are easy to prepare and require minimal thought. What if I told you that you could swap out rice occasionally…

How To Increase Energy Levels And Stabilize Your Mood Using Food

By | Blog, Sugar | No Comments

  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. We’ve all had that feeling before, we have a sugary treat and feel a burst of energy but then before we know it we are feeling tired, hungry or irritable (sometimes all three at once – yikes!)…

By | Blog, Sugar | 2 Comments

Sugar and the issues associated with having a diet high in processed sugar has earned serious media attention in the last few years with popular documentaries like “Fed Up” making major headlines (check out this National Geographic episode for some additional media coverage on sugar or, if you’re feeling really ambitious, this lecture given by Dr. Robert Lustig ). Regardless of this media attention, I realized how little we truly know about sugar after…

By | Recipes | No Comments

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. After seeing such a huge list of unnecessary ingredients, such as “corn maltodextrin”, “sugar”, “caramel colour”, “hydrolyzed soya and corn protein” (in taco seasoning, really?) the quest for finding a delicious taco seasoning recipe was on….
