These slow cooker vegan sloppy joes are just as delicious as their meaty counterpart. They are budget-friendly and packed with protein. This is the perfect slow cooker recipe to make on a Sunday then serve multiple ways throughout the week. I highly recommend making a double batch if you have many mouths to feed!

It feels like it's impossible to eat healthily. Once you've decided to eat carbohydrates or not, a super fruit is found. If you track down the superfruit, you need to know if it's GMO on Non-GMO. Or maybe you should become vegan and figure out what has animal products or not.

I have decided that I need to train myself to take a beat -- a mindfulness moment -- before I eat anything. I eat healthy foods, but I need to become more aware of HOW I eat. Too often I nibble on vegetables when I am cooking, I stand up to stuff food down between clients, and at night I eat in front of the TV. I need to become more mindful of how I am eating!

Plain and simple, there are certain questions that I get a whole lot from clients. Some questions, however, just need to die already. There are a lot of people who have no nutrition training, yet somehow manage to burn nonsensical ideas into peoples' brains -- and that's how the questions below are born.

Turmeric is popular spice that is found in curries, etc. It contains enormous anti-inflammatory properties that can act as a natural 'fire extinguisher' to quench inflammation. Inflammation provides cancer cells an advantage to grow, thus anything we can do to reduce it will help reduce our risk of not only cancer, but most chronic disease facing developed nations today.

Seeing all the bags of candy out for Halloween and post-Halloween can be tempting, especially when you're a self-confessed candy addict, but visualizing myself entering 2014 as a more fit, stronger and healthier me...both mentally and physically (in my size 6 skinny jeans)...is all the motivation I need!
Recently, a number of people commented that they envied my "discipline" and "dedication to my health." The comments caught me slightly off guard -- to be honest I don't really consider myself particularly disciplined. I responded that most of my choices don't seem like choices -- I have structured my life so that I make them fairly unconsciously. The way I live my life no longer seems particularly special, it is just the way I live my life.

Superfoods are a category of foods found in nature; they are superior sources of essential, super-power nutrients -- nutrients we can't make ourselves. They are the most powerful foods on the planet, and are powerhouses for the transformation to a slender, healthier you. If you are what you eat, why not be super?

One of the reasons for almost 60 per cent of Canadians being overweight is due to the large portions of food we're getting at restaurants, fast food chains and the supermarkets. Adults are about 25 pounds heavier than they were in the 1950s! No wonder we have increased incidences of heart and stroke disease, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers. Here are some tips to remember when eating out...

Did you ever wonder why so many people are attracted to junk food? Or why ice cream, french fries and soda pop so often win out over brown rice and broccoli? It's not actually a conspiracy by fast-food companies to bewitch people into eating things that aren't good for them. It's largely due to an evolutionary instinct that was useful when people wandered around in the woods searching for food, thousands of years ago.

You'd think that more than 20 years of editing trade magazines on pollution control and waste management I'd have made the connection that might exist between diseases like cancer, diabetes and the like, and environmental toxins in our homes and in our food. Switching to healthier choices is far easier than you or I ever imagined.
