Nutrition 101: Kombucha

My Goals for 2020

With every beginning of a new year, the internet is filled with everyone’s New Years Resolutions… I think it’s great to set yourself some goals or plans for the future, but setting hard-core, drastic resolutions can often be daunting and lead to failure. I often see lists of resolutions spanning 20 countries someone would like…

Nutrition 101: Sweeteners

Sugar, the traditional granulated sweet stuff we often use in our baked goods and read on the label of far too many food items we buy at the grocery store, is delicious, but not the best for our health… As some of you may know, it is very high on the glycemic index (GI) scale,…

Nutrition 101: Dietary Fibre

Although it’s my favourite nutrition-related topic, quite a few people don’t know the importance of dietary fibre.
