The Ultimate Diet

What is the ultimate, optimal diet? Paleo? Vegan? Vegetarian? Meat-etarian? Ok the meat-atarian one is a bit of a joke, but these days there are lots of ‘dieting’ options out there. But trying to decide which one is right for you can be difficult. I go by the ‘Sasha Diet,’ it is sustainable, affordable  and […]

A Funny Thing Happened on the way to Lunch

I’m a fan of packing my lunch. You get to pick what you want. You can have a light lunch. You can eat outside, in your office, in the car. You can choose to have desert before you eat the healthier stuff. But sometimes it’s nice to celebrate with friends and go out for lunch. […]

Curbing Junk Food Ingestion: Tax It

Think about the last time you went grocery shopping. Where did you spend most of your time? In the aisles? Or along the perimeter? The fresh stuff, the produce, seafood, meat and dairy cases line the outside of the store, while the prepackaged stuff crowds the middle. That pre-packaged, read-to-eat (or almost ready-to-eat) stuff is […]

New Years Resolutions

Usually so hard to keep. People talk about being more active, being a better parent/spouse/friend. Eating better. Living Cleaner. But so often people set lofty goals, which are too hard to keep. Setting realistic, simple goals is the path to reaching those bigger, more challenging goals. Here are my green New Years Resolutions: Be less […]

As I wait for the weather to turn colder and Toronto to go from a murky grey to a glistening white, I got thinking more about what I could do to ‘green’ my holidays. Thanks to @Greenopolis yesterday for posting a great list on their to 10 things you can do to be more green […]

Bringing the Brown Bag Back in Style

What affects the choices we make with our daily meals? Why is it that some of us are more inclined to pack our lunch than to buy our lunch? Last night someone really got me thinking about the things we eat and what influences our eating choices. My friend was telling me that he has […]

Fast Food Is Nutritious

My friend Marni got me thinking the other day about how people sometimes rely on fast-food. According to Marni “Everyday eating can be simple and delicious,” and I couldn’t agree more. I often get asked when I have to put my lunch together, when I have time to keep the fridge stocked with fresh foods […]

Big Vs. Small – The Carrot Debate

About two months ago friends of mine were in visiting for a wedding and we decided to do an appetizer brunch out on the deck before we headed off to watch other good friends of ours exchange nuptials. The two guys headed out on a run and my friend J and I headed down to […]

When Did Shopping Become So Difficult?

I’m a shopaholic at times – shoes, clothes, sunglasses, gadgets and most importantly (well at least to me) food. I’m a huge promoter of fresh and healthy eating, which means I frequent the grocery store. But I do as much as possible stop at all the farmers markets I come across. I recently picked up […]

Alice Waters' Slow Food Movement: Part 1

Obesity is on the rise not only here in North America but world wide. Part of the rise in obesity is the accessibility and the cost effectiveness of FastFood – McDonalds, Harveys, Burger King, Wendy’s, Tim Horton’s, etc … The antithesis to that is something called the slow food movement, and part of that is […]
