Should the Government Regulate Junk Food?

By on August 8, 2017 in Diet, Dieting, Diseases, Health, Health, Lifestyle with 0 Comments

No one likes to be told what they can and cannot eat. Food is one of the key personal freedoms, but should it be? As the world struggles with an increasing obesity rate and overburdened health care systems, it seems at times like we are our own worst enemy.

Governments around the world regulate the sales of alcohol, tobacco, and, increasingly, recreational marijuana. Some have also instituted “soda taxes” that increase the cost of pop in order to encourage people to choose healthier alternatives. However, there has been no concentrated effort to extend such a plan to junk food as a whole.

Given that this segment of the food industry is quite substantial, any such plan would immediately run afoul of the many lobbyists employed to represent the major companies involved.

However, groups like the World Health Organization are becomingly increasingly vocal in their attempts to get governments more involved in addressing the problem. It’s tough to argue from a financial perspective: decreasing the number of people with chronic health issues brought about by poor lifestyle choices will also dramatically decrease the amount of money countries must direct towards healthcare.

That argument for action has suggestions on how to make this economically viable, like providing financial incentives for those involved in the production of healthy foods. They also advise other measures, such as tightening the regulation of fast food advertising aimed at children, and making it less profitable for companies that focus their means of production on unhealthy, highly processed foods.

These are encouraging ideas and one hopes they will increasingly come into play around the world. In the meantime, however, education seems to be the best choice. Helping people to fully realize the risks that a bacon double cheeseburger has on their well-being might encourage more consumers to think twice.

When the Moon Hits Your Eye Like a Big Pizza Pie…or a Nice Light Salad

By on July 27, 2017 in Dieting, Health, Lifestyle with 0 Comments

One of the most romantic things you can do for your significant other is plan a special, candle lit meal for two. Usually these types of dinners are rich, heavy and generous with the alcohol. While this type of decadence may seem like a great way to celebrate, reward, or just connect, it may lead you to fall asleep before the real romancing starts, or if you manage to stay up, you won’t be feeling your best which definitely defeats the purpose. Here are some meal ideas to make you feel cool and heat things up:

  • Crab cakes and a light salad: especially good for summer, try adding apple to the salad for extra brightness. You can prepare most of it in advance, which will keep clean up to a minimum. Try serving it with a white wine spritzer made with a citrusy sauvignon blanc.
  • Flank steak flat breads topped with sautéed bell peppers: this cut of beef is super lean, but it still feels like a treat because it’s steak. You can add little chipotle to the peppers for a nice spiciness without making you sweat. Try it with sangria made with red wine a no-sugar added cranberry or cherry juice.
  • Pasta with pesto, cherry tomatoes and bocconcini: have your own Lady and the Tramp moment with something a little healthier (even better if you make your own pasta and pesto from scratch). This is also a great way to showcase heirloom tomatoes when they’re in season and make the meal look extra special. Go full Italian and try it with a Campari and Soda: the bitterness will offset the sweetness of the tomatoes.

With all of these, the best plan of action is to prep as much before hand as you can, so that you can spend more time romancing and less time in the kitchen. Showering your loved one with indulgences may seem like a good idea (and I’m not saying never do it), but taking care of their body while treating them to something lovely lets them know that you’re thinking of their overall well being too, showing commitment and caring.

Salads That You’ll Want to Eat

By on July 21, 2017 in Dieting, Health, Lifestyle with 0 Comments

One of the sad facts of healthy eating is that yes, those of us who follow this lifestyle tend to eat a lot of salad. All too often people try to shame us with taunts of “you don’t win friends with salad!” or “yuck, rabbit food!” but no longer! Here are some great suggestions to up your salad game and make it feel like a luxury decadence instead of a healthy chore:

  • Have you ever tried Haloumi? It’s a firm, salty cheese and makes a great protein addition to a salad. Cube it and sear it in some olive oil (it won’t melt) them toss with cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, herbs like dill or cilantro and a hummus lemon dressing
  • Speaking of herbs, are you including them in your salads? Fresh, delicate ones like basil, dill, and cilantro work best, and bring a lot of flavour with no guilt
  • How about upping the nutrients with some unexpected fruit in a savoury salad? Cherries, peaches, strawberries, pears, and apples are all great choices to start with. Be sure to follow the seasons where you are to get the freshest (and most nutritious) ones.
  • Olive oil is a perfect, heart healthy way to start off a homemade dressing, but consider adding other oils too for flavour. Walnut, almond, and sesame oil are all readily available at most large grocery stores and can really add a new dimension to your dressing
  • Do you have a favourite comfort food? Why not try re-imaging it as a salad? Fajitas are an easy choice, but why not a chicken cordon bleu? You can grill the chicken, dice some lean ham, sprinkle a little grated swiss and make a punchy Dijon dressing to get all the flavour of the classic dish, but with the addition of as many greens as you can handle

What to Do for Dinner When the Weather Won’t Make up its Mind.

By on July 20, 2017 in Dieting, Health, Lifestyle with 0 Comments


Summer’s finally here! ish. Ok, so there’s been more rain and less sunshine than we were all hoping for this year, making it harder to get our grill on and forcing us back to craving those carb and fat heavy winter comfort foods. Here are some ways you can combine the best of both world’s and combat this unco-operative season:


These are a great choice because you get the comforting and restorative warmth of a soup and the option of adding some of the first fresh produce of summer. Use asparagus and peas as creamed soups without the cream, or as additions to a classic minestrone.  Bonus: if it does warm up, you can always make a classic Gazpacho (consider a white Gazpacho for an even more refreshing meal).


You can pair them with one of the soups from above, or on their own for a tasty and portable meal. Consider radish and avocado for something both rich and crisp, or add a big handful of fresh herbs or greens to mix it up with your favourite classic: a BLT with arugula or a bunch of basil with a tuna melt can revamp the old standby for the new season. Bonus: there’s no need to turn on the stove!


For comfort food, almost nothing beats a big bowl of noodles, but how to convert the winter fav into something that’s not too heavy for a mild, sunny day? Instead of a rich, slow cooked sauce like Bolognese, toss the cooked pasta with a bit of fresh tomatoes, pesto, and parmesan. Or add basil, bocconcini, and balsamic to the tomatoes and pasta for a caprese style meal. You’ll still get the carbs and cheese that make a cold day bearable, but the pops of freshness will remind you that spring (and summer) is on the way! Bonus: pasta salads make great additions to picnics and bbqs, just be sure to stay away from mayo based dressings, not only do they add unnecessary calories: they can also go bad if left out in the sun too long


Bean There Done That

By on July 18, 2017 in Dieting, Health, Lifestyle with 0 Comments

Thanks to a certain song about their magical properties, beans continue to get a bad rap, and that needs to change! Not only are they are great source of non-animal protein, they’re also very easy on the budget. When people think beans, their minds mostly go to either chili or baked beans, which are great, but if those are your only two recipes, then it’s easy to forget about including them more often in your meal rotation. Here are a few suggestions to make them more exciting:

  • creamy white beans: this works best if you’ve got dried beans and a lot of time on your hands, but the efffort is actually minimal (as is the case with pretty much any bean recipe to be honest). Simply put a 1:4 ratio of beans to water in a pot, along with some rosemary or thyme or both, a few peeled, whole garlic cloves and an onion that is peeled and cut in half length wise. Simmer the beans for a few hours (how long this takes will depend on the age and size of the bean) and season with salt and pepper once they reach the desired level of creamy-ness.
  • Versitile Black Beans: follow the basic instructions from above, omit the herbs, but include an orange that has been cut in half. If you’re feeling spicy, throw in some diced  jalapeno or chipotle peppers.
  • Comforting Split Peas: maybe not technically a bean, but legume is close enough, and you follow the same method, so I’m counting it. This time, in addition to the garlic and onion, add some dice carrot and celery. Feel free to toss in whatever hearty herbs you like, and some dried mustard will add a nice subtle kick. Spilt peas tend to cook faster than beans, so keep a closer eye on it.

All three of these can be un-veganized by adding either a smoked ham hock during cooking or some  cooked bacon/other pork at the start, before you add the beans and water to the pot. They are all great on their own, but try experimenting by serving them with different grains, breads or veggies. You can even purree them for dips or spreads!

Will. It. Pickle?

By on July 4, 2017 in Dieting, Health, Lifestyle with 0 Comments

In this age of both convenience and artisan revival, it’s easy to pick up any number of crunchy, acidic additions, but how much more impressive (and healthy!) to make your own? The best part is, it’s super easy and infinitely customizable, just follow these simple guidelines and get pickling!

  • While you can pickle just about any fruit or vegetable, keep in mind how the texture will be affected by pickling; the heat and acid of pickling will soften the pickle subject up, so if it’s soft already, it could become mushy (in which case, you may be better off making a relish or chutney, which will have a lot of the same flavour profiles, but will better suit the texture)
  • Think carefully about the natural acidity or sourness of the pickle subject: if something is already tart (like rhubarb) you’ll want to add extra sugar (or sugar substitute like maple syrup or honey) to balance it out
  • Don’t forget to season! A little salt will go a long way, and helps keep things preserved without chemicals. And there’s no reason to stop at salt, why not add other spices too? A cinnamon stick or star anise, as well as classic pickling spices like coriander, juniper, and dill seed are all great choices
  • Decide how long you want the pickles to last, if this is a quick pickle to be used soon, you can utilize the fridge method (explained below) if you’d like to keep them longer and store them in some kind of root cellar situation, then you’ll have to take more care by sterilizing the jars and lids in boiling water, and sealing them by placing the filled and lidded jars in a pot of boiling water (or a pressure cooker) for about 15 minutes until you can be sure that any bacteria is eliminated. This method is called processing and means you can keep the sealed jars at room temperature for several months
  • Once you’re ready to pickle, start by adding a teaspoon or so of salt to the jar, as well as any spices you’d like, then cram the jar as full as you can with your pickle pick, cut into whatever size you’d like to enjoy them at (eg: you can slice, cube or julienne, the smaller or thinner the size, the softer the pickle)
  • When your jars are full, bring equal parts water and vinegar to a boil. White vinegar is the most popular choice, but apple cider and champagne vinegars are good choices too. Remember, the vinegar choice will influence the pickle flavour. Balsamic vinegars are not recommended because of their strong colour and flavour, expense, and slightly thicker texture
  • CAREFULLY fill the jars with the hot water/vinegar, stopping about a centimeter below the rim. Seal the jars right away, once cooled, they can be refrigerated, or you can proceed with the processing method. Pickles with be ready to eat in a few days, but try to wait a week to really let the flavours develop

***Fridge pickles are just that, pickles you keep in the fridge! The only real difference is that since you haven’t processed

How to Bring Some Healthy Choices to Your Next Picnic or BBQ

By on June 30, 2017 in Dieting, Health, Lifestyle with 0 Comments

Summer’s finally in full swing, and with it comes backyard bbqs and picnic potlucks galore.  As much as well all love great food, it can get pretty tricky to keep things healthy when those tables are loaded down with heavy sides and sugary sauces. Here are a few recipes ideas to make sure that there are some healthy and tasty options, so you don’t feel too guily about those ribs and icecream sandwiches!

Beans and Rice:

Rice and legumes together make a complete protein, so any vegetarians will be very happy to see this option. Bonus points for this dish: you can up the fibre with brown rice, the flavour by using a wide variety of spices (which also make s the dish infinitly costumizable), and the nutrients by adding as many diced fruits veggies as you can handle.

Watermelon and Cucumer Salad:

Easy and breezy, this is a great cool down option, and more grown up than sitting on a stoop and seeing how far you can spit the seeds. Start with chunks of watermelon  and cucumber, and than add salt and pepper (trust me on this!) as well as your favourit herbs (basil, cilantro and mint all work well. Don’t forget a hit of acid (metaphorically of course) lime juice and balsamic vinegar are great choices, just make sure the acid you choose pairs well with the herb you picked (lime goes with cilantro and mint, but keep the balsamic with the basil). Finish with a qulaity olive oil and you’re all set!

Sweet Potato Salad

A long time favourit at bbqs and picnics, traditional potato salad tends to be loaded down with heavy mayo dressing, with aside from being less than ideal health-wise, also contains eggs, which when left at the wrong tempurature for too long, could cause serious illness! Avoid these pitfalls by replacing the starchy white pototoes with roasted sweet potatoes or yams and dressing them with a punchy mustard based vinegrette and some thinly sliced red onions.


Peas Please

By on June 27, 2017 in Dieting, Health, Lifestyle with 0 Comments

Peas are a great source of fibre and vegetable based protein, and since they’re one of the first fresh local produce of the season here, I always feel as though I should like them more than I do. Sadly, since childhood I have shied away from these bright green spheres of goodness, well, no more! If you or somebody you love has an aversion to peas, here’s a way to work them into meals that will get them (or you) converted in no time: purees! Now, it may seem like I’m trying to get you to eat baby food, and nobody wants that, no the kind of puree I’m talking about is much fancier and grown up than anything that came out of a tiny jar (though seriously, how cute are those jars?). Try boiling freshly shelled peas for a few minutes then blanching (ie dunking) them in a bowl full of ice water. Add them to a blender or food processor with one or more of the following, chaning the amount of liquid to dertermine how thick you’d like the puree to be!

  • arugla-makes it slightly spicy and extra bright green
  • spinich-the more super food the better
  • garlic scapes-a great way to make a healthy and creamy sauce for pasta
  • mint-a classic herb pairing
  • tarragon-an update on the classic
  • basil-for when you want italian without the garlic breathe

To all of these, you can thin the puree with leftover water from boiling the peas, or from heavey cream-depending on how decandent you feel like being. Try throwing in a bit of parmesean or lemon zest to add some zip, and always remember to season with salt and pepper to taste before serving.

A Real-world Discussion About Nutrient Timing

By on July 31, 2014 in Dieting with 0 Comments

Everyone desires bright, warm plants in their house, however, often houseplants look dark and shabby a couple of weeks after you bring them into your home. There are numerous different conditions each plant source as so you have to be delicate to fulfill their needs and help them to thrive. There are 5 primary requirements for houseplants and include: appropriate temperature, appropriate watering, spacing, appropriate light and source of nutrients. It is essential to offer a well balanced environment and attempt to mimic the plants natural growing conditions as best as you can.

The very first need for any houseplant is the correct temperature. 70 F is the ideal temperature for a houseplant. Numerous houseplants are tropical plants and are conditioned to grow in a warm atmosphere. 50 F is the outright minimum temperature for a houseplant, but many will certainly not flourish at this cool temperature. It is essential to place your plant in an area that will be shielded from any drafts. Avoid from putting your houseplant near any door that will lead outdoors, or near a hallway. Drafts change temperature levels significantly and really quickly. These temperature drops can cause a houseplant to end up being stressed and enter into a dormant stage and even stop growing on you. The outright highest temperature for your houseplants is 90 F. When the temperature is too warm, your houseplant will certainly turn a light green and begin to sag. The heat will certainly trigger the plant to become dry and not be able to exchange oxygen and take in water the method it has to. If you have an extremely sunny south facing window, you might wish to shield your plant a bit during the direct sun hours in the afternoon. The greenhouse result of the window might cause the temperature to rise rapidly in the location straight in front of the window. Pulling down a shade for an hour approximately can supply some simple defense to your plant without blocking all the sun.

And, what about…..

The next condition for your houseplants appertains watering. In a natural growing condition plants can extend their roots as far as they need to to reach the water sources. In your home the roots are contained to the pot you put the plant in. Since the plant cannot find the water on its own, you need to be additional mindful to manage the wetness of the soil in the pot. There are many conditions the influence the watering frequency and amount for each different plant. Many plants included basic instructions, however, if you actually want to have healthy houseplants you may want to search online for specific directions, or buy a houseplant handbook at a yard center.

On This Topic Of Nutrient Timing

The type of plant, sort of pot, type of soil, and several other factors attribute to the plant’s water need. Many plants need a minimum of a weekly watering, and desire their roots to end up being dry prior to the next watering. They do not have any opportunities to absorb oxygen from the soil and will certainly drown if your roots are water logged all the time. When looking for wetness level, you can merely place your finger into the soil and if it is dry all the way with, water the plant. You will certainly wish to water it enough so that the water lacks the pot. The quality of your water will certainly also influence the plant. Soft water leaves, salt and chlorinated water leaves brown edges on your plant. If rain water, the finest type of water to use. You will also not wish to water with cold water as the coolness shocks the plants. It is best to water with room temperature, rain water.

Alongside oxygen, water is the most fundamental part of any living organism and plants are no different. Yet, although it is important, many people never ever offer plants the adequate quantity of water they genuinely require. You must offer your plants a good one hour per week of watering, and I wear t mean 9 minutes every day, I indicate sixty minutes in a single session. When you water like this, deep pockets of water are created underneath the soil, which compels the roots of the plants to reach for them. Producing a healthier veggie plant when they do that the roots become stronger.

Another factor to think about for your houseplants is spacing. Plants require an area to breath and grow. Or go into a dormant state if a plant feels crowded many times it will drop its leaves. To prevent this from taking place, place plants far from large pieces of furnishings, or from congested bookshelves. You can place some plants together, however beware to watch for any indicators of stress on the plants. You will certainly likewise want to keep any plant that has had any disease totally different from your other plants, or they will certainly all be affected. Spacing for the plants roots is likewise essential. Plants need to be re-potted as the soil is depleted or the plant becomes root bound. That is a sure indication you need to re-pot if you see roots coming out of the drainage hole! You can re-pot the plant any time, however spring is the best time, just as brand-new growth is sprouting, and winter is the worst time as the plant is in a dormant phase and needs to not truly be disrupted. Plastic pots work OK. Due to the fact that you can discover practically any size or color you would like, they are nice. Clay pots have a number of advantages consisting of better air control, and much better drain. Clay pots are important to healthy growth of any succulents or cactus.

Light is the next condition to monitor in your houseplant. Most plants have a condition variety on their purchase tag. They tend to range from low light, to average light, to highlight. Any plants that are going to flower will certainly require lots of light to produce healthy blooms. You can also figure out the light needs from taking a look at the plant. Opportunities are it will certainly not require much light if it is a dark green plant. If most likely will like a lot of light to grow if the plant is extremely brilliant. This is one factor that you can experiment with. Try a different spot with different light if your plant isn’t really thriving in the light you are supplying.

The last and possibly the most important factor is soil and nutrient control. Houseplants require a good porous soil. , if the soil ends up being hard, tough compact the roots cannot grow and move as they need to.. Many garden centers sell unique houseplant soil and it mostly contains peat moss, perlite, and a mix of other products. Numerous products are provided as ‘soil-less’ growing mediums and are an exceptional choice for a houseplant. Fertilizing is also crucial for your houseplants to grow. The nutrients are not found naturally because the plant is included to its small pot. The majority of fertilizers includes three aspects, phosphorus, nitrogen and potassium. Nitrogen is essential to healthy leaf growth, phosphorus makes for stunning blooms and potassium helps shield the plant from illness and also helps the plant bear any fruit. The timing of application is also crucial. You will want to fertilize more when the plant is growing, and less or none when the plant is not growing. Too much fertilizer will frequently result in tall, slender plants and lead to a salt accumulation around the soil. It is likewise important to leach your plant once a year. To do this you can simply position the plant in the tub, and run the water through and with. This will clear the soil and revitalizing the plant.
