Dates are healthy, nutritious and packed full of fibre. They have an extensive list of health benefits from relieving constipation, intestinal disorders, heart problems, anemia, diarrhea, low energy and the list goes on. They contain oil, calcium, sulfur, iron, potassium, phosphorous, manganese, copper and magnesium which are all great for your health. I’ve compiled a list of 11 mouth water date recipes that you will definitely want to try out at home. Click on each image for the complete recipe.

I grew up hearing that we inherit the earth from our grandchildren. As I grew older I learnt what this really means. Canada possesses nearly 6.5 per cent of the world’s supply of fresh water, making it one of our nation’s most valued treasures. According to a study by Yale University’s Environmental Performance index, part of the RBC Blue Water campaign, Canada has the second best water quality ranking amongst selected industrialized countries.

If you follow me on social and the Habs are playing, it will come as no surprise that I am an absolute thrill junkie when it comes to hockey. We bleed red, white and blue in our house. We fly our flags high with pride and when the puck drops it’s pin drop silence in our house. 

As chief carpooler, mom taxi, errand runner and household Mom-EO safety is of utmost importance to me. Naturally we research the safety features on our family vehicles but often times we overlook the important fact that there are four rubber tires between the safest of vehicles and the road. After-all, the safety of your vehicle and your most precious cargo, is riding on these tires.

I love to drive, I love to test out some amazing vehicles and get a real feel for the road. One thing I knew very little about until recently, was tire safety and several key basics of vehicle maintenance. Not to propagate female stereotypes but I honestly knew very little about anything under the hood. Thankfully I was invited to an awesome car care and safety clinic for Sailun Tires on behalf of PTPA (the midas seal of parent approved products).

Meal planning is an important part of everyday life. Meal planning can cut your costs drastically in the grocery store by sparing you the costs of all the extra food you don’t need or won’t use up in time! Meal planning is often implemented as a way to lose weight, save money, or both!

Making healthy food choices can be tricky in the best of times, at least for some of us. Fruits are really popular in our home and usually make up about 30% of our groceries. When it comes to the other stuff though it’s not always easy to figure out what to pick up especially when surrounded by so many options at the grocery store. I was really excited to learn about President Choice’s Guiding Stars program which helps guide you towards healthy eating habits. 

I have had the pleasure of attending BlissDom Canada for the past three years. It has been a transformative experience on both a personal and professional level.

Growing up, warm weather would mean riding bikes, playing street hockey, baseball with the neighbourhood kids and basketball with my brother until the sun went down. We didn’t try to be active, we just were.

On June 18, 2015, the beauty industry is encouraging women to buy a blue eyeliner/eye shadow, and colour their eyes blue in support of women going through the emotional trauma of the Cancer Blues. Making a difference is simple. Put on blue eye shadow (or any shade you’d like), take a short video of yourself winking and post it on social media (Twitter, Facebook or Instagram) using #WinkDay

Don’t forget to take your Nutrimins!

As parents we strive to feed our kids healthy balanced meals. The truth is, that is not always possible. To ensure that my kids get an adequate amount of vitamins and nutrients, I encourage them to have a multi-vitamin after breakfast. As a child I used to walk into the drug store with my parents and gaze into brightly coloured bottles of gummy multi-vitamins wishing I could taste their yummy gumminess. Fast forward a couple of decades and up until recently my kids were doing the same thing. I have yet to meet a child that does not adore gummies, or specifically gummy multi-vitamins.
