Kittery, Maine: The Perfect Vacation Destination for Canadian Families

Posted by: on Apr 15, 2016 | No Comments
Those of you who follow my social media accounts know that last month Hubby and I had the wonderful opportunity to visit lovely Kittery, Maine. It was a a welcome reprieve from the stress of our Election Campaign, tax season, and the interminable winter here, in Montreal. In fact, it was our first time getting away as a couple SINCE OUR HONEYMOON 5 years ago! That's right- we had not been away for even a night, just the two of us, in 5 years! I suppose that's what happens when you have babies and Read more [...]

Recipe: Ratatouille- Clean, Easy, Healthy, Yummy!

Last week I shared a photo on social media of the Ratatouille I made, and I got a TON of requests for a recipe. Ha! If you know me, you know I tend to make these things up as I go along without paying much attention to measurements or silly things like that. Hmmm. I don't want to disappoint, however, so I have made my best attempt at estimating exactly what I used/did to create this absolutely scrumptious dish! I was looking for a new way to get in all my veggies (green containers for all of you Read more [...]

This is where Squoosh and Slammers Snacks come in to play! Squoosh Snacks are the only organic Read more [...]

I don't know about where you live, but it's pretty dang chilly here already! Too chilly for October, if you ask me! I can't even think about how I'm going to convince my daughter to bundle up properly for Trick-or-Treating this Halloween weekend. Brrr... For those who don't know, I do love fall. I love the colours. I love the change in seasons. I love comfy sweaters and slippers. I also love the change in diet from light, cool meals to beat the summer heat to warm, thick soups to warm up on a Read more [...]

Did you know that a 2013 Stanford study found that children who read stories about food have a better understanding of what types of food are healthy and voluntarily eat more vegetables than kids who were exposed to conventional teaching about healthy foods? I was recently introduced to the the 1st book in a new Smartee Plate series, created by registered dietitian and nutritionist, Jennifer Glockner: Teddy Tries a Veggie. Teddy Tries a Veggie is an interactive ebook, available for iPad and Read more [...]

Making homemade food for my babies is something that is very important to me. I like knowing exactly what is being put into their little bodies as I introduce "solids". There will be plenty of time for quick, processed meals and junk food later in life. For the earliest meals, however, I like to feel like I have some control, and I've made making my own baby food a priority. Fortunately there are some really amazing resources out there to help in the process of preparing and coming up with new Read more [...]
