At Work and Tired

Diet plays a huge part in both the quality of your sleep and your energy when awake.

Nope. A full-on, thrown-on-a-sailboat-when-the-keel-hit-the-ground kinda accident. One that launched me in the air. No part of me touching the boat. I was flying without wings, only to land […]

Drum Roll… BEST Burger Results

Here are the results of The BEST Burger Challenge held on June 10, 2018, at the beautiful Royal Canadian Yacht Club on Toronto Island. We had a fantastic line up of family and friends with Jerry Agar, host of NewsTalk1010 Radio, and I.

EAT THIS For Your Eyes

In this digital age, our eyes are exposed to digital devices like computer screens, phones, tablets and TVs all day long and those screens are mostly blue light. Blue light is damaging to the eyes because there’s no built-in filter in our eyes, allowing blue light to go straight to the light-sensitive retina and causing damage that can lead to degenerative conditions and vision loss.

Diets of 2017 – What’s Effective and Sustainable
