August 1, 2019
ice pops

To restore that fluid balance and help our muscles recover from exercise, beverages that contain these electrolytes are extremely important. Where do we get these electrolytes if not from Gatorade? Of course, filtered water should contain trace minerals that allow us to…

Spring Chill & Cut Cookies

April 11, 2019

Our twist on the classic muhammara omits the bread and substitutes Red Beet Crystals for pomegranate molasses to add a sweet and tangy flavor. Dana Green Remedios, RHN, RNCP, is a Vancouver-based educator and coach. She is a regular contributor to…
