BAD FATS Versus GOOD FATS…

Fats can be divided into a number of different categories which require lengthy explanations. For simplicity’s sake and for the purpose of this blog, I will divide fats into ‘BAD Versus GOOD’. The primary building blocks of fats are fatty acids. Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are unsaturated fatty acids that are regarded as essential for human life and…

Avoiding Trans Fatty Acids (TFAs)

The most harmful fats you can put into your body, pregnant or not, are transunsaturated fats. Wev’e all heard of them but what are they? Trans fats (TFAs) are listed on products as hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated vegetable oil or vegetable shortening. These bad fats are cheap; and are used to retain the shelf life of…

Dangers of Hot Chips or Fries

DANGERS OF HOT CHIPS OR FRIES! McDonald’s and most all other fast food restaurants use MSG to help sell their foods. MSG is used because it is inexpensive and generally makes food taste particularly good. Countless research shows that MSG is now a known neurotoxin, known as flavour enhancer 621. Most of us are aware…

A Cost Effective Easter

Goodness how quickly this year is flying by. I love Easter time. For us, Easter is always a time to check-in with how we are navigating the year to date and to take the time to reflect and “breathe-in” the true meaning of Easter. We talk to the boys about Easter meaning new beginnings, new…

It is the simple rule that…

"Should-ing" all over me – Diary

I had an interesting experience this weekend which I am hoping to commit to memory. I wrote in my ‘Gratitude Dairy’ about the event because it helped me to realize again the gift we can offer each other through having more empathy and through ‘active’ listening. Life is a funny thing. I was spending time…

Post Birth ABCs
