I couldn’t resist….

So, the CBC comes out with yet another article on cleanses, this time criticizing Dr. OZ’s 48 hour detox plan. This articles states: “Despite bold promises that the treatments would purify, detoxify and boost energy and optimize organ function, the cleanses lacked any scientific evidence of efficacy, or clear idea of what toxins they would […]


Boy oh boy where do I begin?  A dear friend of mine sent me an article called “Detox Cleanses may not live up to the hype” on CBC news.  Although this article is geared more towards detox products that you would buy at a health food store or pharmacy, I still felt it was important […]

Hello Winter!

-40 eh?  Cold is not my thing….I will take +20 degree temperatures any day!  However, let’s face it, we live in Canada and we have been very lucky not to have deal with this type of weather that often….well in this area. So, as I add yet another layer of clothing and contemplate what to […]

Decision, Decisions…

Burgers and Fries…         Or Fruits and Veggies….         Are you lacking energy?  Feeling tired all the time?  Having trouble losing weight?  Crippled with digestive issues?  Then, STOP!  Take a look at the food you are eating.  I mean really look at it.  Does it look vibrant?  Is it full of […]

Day 10 of the 12 Days for Good – TOLERANCE

  I think we have all been guilty of reacting to a situation, possibly saying words that we didn’t mean, instead of fully listening, absorbing the information and responding calmly. One of the hardest things to do is stop talking and just listen.  People need to feel truly heard and by giving your undivided attention […]

Day 9 of the 12 days for Good – HOSPITALITY

  As the kids and I settled in by the Christmas tree last night, we turned on the TV to find the movie How The Grinch Stole Christmas.  Such a great movie and a perfect message for the theme of the day today! I think the Whos in Who-Ville can teach us all something.  Music […]

Day 7 of the 12 days for Good – INCLUSION

  Watching my kids in their Christmas pageant this morning was amazing!  Two of them had a role that they felt comfortable with and my youngest, made his own role!  With so many ages and personalities on the stage you wonder how the pageant all came together.  The reason?  INCLUSION.  All the kids were there […]
