I gather fall ingredients and pack up the freezer just like the squirrels that can be seen gathering and burying nuts and seeds for the winter months. This time of year is dedicated to squirreling away containers and freezer baggies of all our fall family favourites.
Let me start by saying this is not an article about blood pressure. Believe or not the word "pulse" has a meaning other than the beating of your heart. In nutrition, the word "pulse" is derived from the latin word "puls" which means thick soup or potage, and refers to the dry seed of the legume family.
Including a few meat-less loaves!

Healthy eating has long been my passion. I've educated Canadians on nutrition and how to create delicious, well-balanced meals for over 20 years.

You have likely seen coconut water sold in fitness centers and yoga studios where it is heavily advertised as a natural rehydration beverage.

Thanksgiving is about celebrating and giving thanks for our wonderful families and the other gifts in our lives.

Kids have the right idea. They eat food off sticks like nobody's business. Cake pops, chocolate covered marshmallows, frozen treats on a stick, but I wonder, hey why not good-for-you-food too and how about us grownups?

How many couples are so perfectly matched? Indeed, is a Barolo from Northern Italy really the best partner? Possibly, but which one? There are different "schools" of approach for the Barolo; one is traditionalist, and the other responding to changes in palate is more contemporary, but either way they are expensive and for a novice like myself it seems to present too much margin for error.
