Eating for Mental Health

Depression, anxiety and panic attacks are the norm for many people’s lives. Situations like an irregular thyroid, lack of sleep, hormonal imbalance, low dopamine or serotonin and digestive imbalance can all affect mood and mental health. But often we don’t consider food as an influencing factor. Let’s look at a typical diet – you’re eating mostly good food, some take out and craving something sweet in the afternoon and evening. This tells me that you […]

Canada’s Food Guide 2019

I’ve been geeking out this week about the new Canada Food Guide. When I sent a note to Jerry Agar’s producer about doing a segment about it, they asked what I wanted to say about it – as in, “It’s not that big of a deal, is it?” It took me a moment to reply. I gathered my thoughts, because I couldn’t go on air and just say how exciting it was. They need an […]

Best Diets for 2019

Here we are, at the beginning of yet another year. Does it feel like a fresh start for you? It does for me! A new year is a clean slate as we put behind all that happened in 2018. Well, that which you’d rather leave in the past, that is! Forgive all wrongdoings and look towards a more positive future. Do you make resolutions still? How’s that working for you? I think it’s likely not. […]

Food Trends for 2019

I remember a few years ago talking about what a poké bowl was, and now when I head to local restaurants, I regularly see this native Hawaiian dish. While not all food trends stick, that one has certainly flourished. My prediction is that 2019 is going to be the year of disruption in the food industry. This is also going to be a year of food innovation like we’ve never seen before. Here are the […]

Eat This: Bread

What’s your best daily (wheat) bread? Now, I don’t generally eat bread, and most of the time not bread that contains wheat. It makes me bloated, gassy and tired. I figured that out a long time ago and my diet has evolved to excluding most bread. When I do have bread, I choose well. Bread is such a well-loved and consumed food. Very often, I find that I’m asking clients to take a bit of […]

At Work and Tired

Diet plays a huge part in both the quality of your sleep and your energy when awake. With three quarters of the work force in Canada saying that they are tired while at work, it’s time to do something different. Like a roller coaster ride, blood sugar highs and lows plague the majority of our work force. Is it because of a bad night’s sleep or because of the food that’s eaten during the day? […]

A time of re-focus

There’s never a dull moment around here, I can tell you! While in the midst of the #DoThis weight loss challenge with Jerry Agar and other colleagues from NewsTalk1010 and Virgin Radio, I had an accident. Not just a trip and fall over a low hanging branch. 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 […]
