There are some hidden dangers you need to know about if weight gain is a concern, if you want to take advantage of summer activities to slim down or if you have health concerns that need to be kept in check. Here are four summer foods, disguised as healthy choices, that may actually be causing you to gain weight.

Peaches Are the Ultimate Taste of Summer

With a bounty of beautiful, ripe peaches available, often people think of desserts and jam recipes. Each season I make peach melba and peach cobbler. However, peaches offer an interesting texture, colour and flavour that go beyond desserts, making smoothies, sangria, appetizers, entrees and snacks delicious.

As a veteran potluck dessert-bringer, I've learned that squares are your most reliable companions. They're the archetype of the ideal sweet to bring to a party. Meanwhile, cheesecakes, cakes, cupcakes -- all gleefully dainty -- but so spectacularly fussy.

There's nothing better than a sunny day spent outdoors cooking on the barbecue. On weekends, I often find myself at the cottage rummaging around the fridge for anything I can throw on the grill. And because there is less pomp and circumstance around meals based on the grill, you get more time to savour with your guests.

Try loin or round cuts for lean options of pork or beef. Salmon and Trout are great to throw in a tinfoil package with some potatoes, onions and lemon wedges. Tofu skewers or bean burgers add good variety if you're looking to go meatless. Make veggie skewers with tomatoes, peppers, zucchini and onions or use a grill basket to make a warm vegetable salad.

Tips for a Great Canadian Weekend in Whistler

Adrian Brijbassi

I've been to Whistler at least two dozen times and never once bombed down one of its mountains. Not on skis, or a snowboard, or a mountain bike. Am I missing out? I've never felt like it. That's because this haven for intense outdoor sports activities is also fabulous for soft-core warm-weather enjoyment, too, including golfing, hiking, zip lining, and cycling. It's a beautiful part of the world that never bores me.

Chris Schryer

Stouts and porters, particularly higher alcohol ones, can be perfect beers for a long cold Canadian winter. However, when thinking about pairing beer and food, it would be hard to find a better beer to accompany rich smokey BBQ meats, than a roasty or smokey porter or stout.
