It was a chance to hear from some of the many victims of Monsanto and how that company has affected every level of our lives: from the food we put into our bodies and the issues associated with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and the glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup, to the adverse impacts its corporate greed has on poverty and food security.

Welcome To Bhalil: Morocco's Hidden Gem

Morocco is a curious traveller's dream. As you follow the aroma of spicy kebabs and vegetable tagines ahead, you can't escape the vendors selling handicrafts who ask you to stop for a peek into their shops. The souks in these old cities surely excites the senses, but there is more to Morocco than what's found in these commonly-travelled areas.

While we focus on (and maybe obsess over) the nutrients, vitamins or calories in our food, food social enterprises like Newcomer Kitchen are using food's potential to open minds, build healthy communities, and open minds. "You are what you eat" takes on new meaning if we consider not only what is in our dinner, but how and with whom we are dining.

Cravings seem to be a normal part of life for many people. And yet, in my work as a naturopath, cravings often signal an imbalance in the body. The body is literally craving what it most needs.

There are plenty of write-ups on life hacks out there, and just as many on baking hacks. The difference is that these ones actually work. So for all of you Martha Stewart wannabes, dorm room dwellers who get the hankering for something freshly baked or busy parents that survive on hacks because life is busy, this is for you.

Our food-obsessed culture is more interested than ever in sourcing their food locally, and local food experiences have become one of the primary travel motivators. Through a comprehensive study, we discovered the rise of food tourism is driven by the values of the modern consumer, specifically millennials, who look for immersive travel experiences.

Tell Health Canada You Want GMO Foods To Be Labelled

Rachel Parent | Posted 11.15.2016 | Canada Impact
Rachel Parent

With the topic of labelling GMOs such a priority elsewhere and something which the majority of Canadians want, why has Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency been denying this information to the public? Why do the same companies that manufacture GM food for the Canadian market supply non-GM food to other parts of the world?

Salut! Chin chin! Na zdorovie! Raising a glass of Bordeaux in France, Aperol spritz in Italy or chilled vodka in Russia is certainly one way to familiarize and assimilate yourself in your surroundings while visiting a new country.

Since travelling to Tanzania this September I have a more useful way of looking at addressing food scarcity. I got to see World Vision at work providing communities with the tools necessary to create a sustainable living. We met fish farmers, bee farmers, food and milk processing workers, and saw water projects that helped farmers feed multiple communities.

I Needed A Lifestyle Change, Not A Diet

Jessica Gerlock | Posted 10.26.2016 | Canada Living
Jessica Gerlock

I went to a bunch of professionals and they would give me diets that include lots of vegetables, lot of salads and stuff that I just wouldn't eat. My mentality was why eat something, if I don't enjoy it? What is the point to that? So as I have done with most of my life decisions, I did it MY way.

Discovering The Microbial Makeup Of Kefir

Jason Tetro | Posted 10.17.2016 | Canada
Jason Tetro

Depending on the species of bacteria used, the benefits of Kefir can range from antioxidant activity to immune balance and in some cases, prevention of tumours. Yet, while these benefits continue to be discovered, there is a caveat. The microbiological composition of kefir grains differs around the world meaning no two are going to provide the same benefits. This could lead to incorrect assumptions of the positive effects on health.

The white truffle is the most prized and commands the highest prices -- in 2006 it is reported to have sold for the same price as gold. The taste is subtle but lingering and summons the musty and savoury associations of Italian harvest.

Working Out Was The Start To My New Life

There are many days that I want to just stay in bed and sleep but I push myself out the door to the gym and I feel like a whole different person afterwards. When I was at my lowest mental state and 100 pounds overweight, it was hard to even walk through the doors to a gym. I was completely out of shape and had no idea what to do.

How To Spend 24 Hours In Madrid

Andrea Traynor

While Madrid is a city in which you could easily spend a year and not see, do or eat everything, it's also an easily accessible stopover if you're just passing through. I managed to sneak in about 24 hours in Spain's capital city. And it's amazing how much one can accomplish in such a short time with an itinerary. Unless you're the aimless wandering type, a plan is key.

You Should Totally Go To Ibiza (In Your 40s)

Andrea Traynor | Posted 09.29.2016 | Canada Travel
Andrea Traynor

I was a club kid of the late-'90s in London, when house music had merged into the mainstream and was no longer solely entertaining audiences of the "underground" variety. Back then, I never made it to the music Mecca that is Ibiza. And I've always regretted it. Twenty years later, to prove that a 40-something could still work the local scene, I hightailed it to what may very well be considered the clubbing capital of the world.
