Healthy Carrot and Date Muffins

The holiday season is officially here and that often means more celebrating (and more eating). Although I completely think indulging is important, I also think it's important to have healthy options available. I mean who doesn't love a baked good....that's healthy? Today I enjoyed time decorating my home and spending time with loved ones. I also got to bake, which is one of my favourite things to do on a Sunday. Today I tested these delicious and nutritious carrot and date muffins (and I LOVED them). They are a great source of fibre, protein, and contain very little added sugar (4 grams in one muffin). See nutrition facts below. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Makes 12 muffins Ingred

5 Health Tips for Men in Movember

I can't say I love how moustaches look, but I do love what they are supporting during the month of November, which is men's health.

Empty Calories

Calories, calories, calories. I often hear people talk about calories, in fact they are now posted on most Canadian menus (I am sure you've noticed that). But what are calories and do you need to be restricting them? What are calories? Calories are a unit of energy. We get our energy (aka calories) from the foods we eat and beverages we drink, in turn we burn calories through physical activity and daily living activities (i.e., breathing, digesting, walking, moving etc.).

Butternut Squash Soup

Tis the soup season! I am a HUGE soup lover, it is the perfect meal for warming both the body and soul on a chilly fall night. It is also a great way to load up on veggies and get some meal prep done (you can make large batches and freeze for future meals). This tasty butternut squash soup is vegan, filled with nutrients, and it's freezer friendly. It is also filled with vitamin A, vitamin C, fibre, potassium, and other important nutrients and minerals. Enjoy this on a cold fall evening with a small piece of warm and crusty bread. (side note: I topped my soup with some parmesan cheese) Makes 12 servings Ingredients: 1 sweet onion, chopped 1 tbsp. vegetable oil 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and ch
