Cherry Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

My favourite part about summer in Ontario is the amazing selection of local produce. Mid-summer is my favourite, with the abundance of fresh greens, berries, cherries, zucchini, peaches, and the list goes on and on. Today I am sharing the top five reasons for buying seasonal produce and a very delicious cherry recipe. Top 5 benefits of buying seasonal produce: 1) Cost - seasonal eating is cost effective, the more produce we have available the less it will cost.

I currently work part time as a project coordinator at the University of Guelph for a family food skills study that focuses on families purchasing, eating patterns, and household level food waste.

In fact, Canadian reports have found that the average Canadian

Top 5 Tips to Keep Hydrated this Summer

My favourite season is summer, the warm breeze, hot sun, bright blue skies, big full trees, long sunny evenings....I love it all! Most of the time I don't even mind the humidity (yes, I said it). However, the heat we have been experiencing lately can cause stress on the body, especially for those at increased risk (babies and young children, elderly, outside workers, those being active or playing sports in the heat, etc.).
