I love summer. Love, love, love it. It is the most wonderful time of the year. It is what we northerners wait for, what we hope for and what we crave through those dark and dreary winter months. It's the light at the end of the tunnel. But I realized that there are a FEW things I will not miss about summer.

Protective and preventative beauty products may not be as glamorous as creamy lipsticks or glossy polishes, but they are a skincare staple for fun in the sun. For the best results, look after your skin from sunscreen application to after sun care, and choose products that work with your skin type.

Today we are going to cover a type of beer that is probably unfamiliar to many folks, sour ales, and specifically Belgian-style Saisons and German-style Berliner Weisse. For many, the thought of a beer being sour at all is a strange one.

7 Ways to Lose Your Love Handles

Natasha Turner, ND

Hormones influence not only how much body fat you have, but also where you carry it. If your trouble areas are your love handles, than you can be certain that your insulin levels are too high. Too much insulin not only encourages your body to store unused glucose as fat, but also blocks the use of stored fat as an energy source -- a double whammy for any waistline.

Because of this variety of styles, even if you've had one fruit beer you didn't particularly like, it's never a bad idea to try one that is new to you. For many people who "don't like beer", a fruit beer is often an option that they actually enjoy.

One of my earliest memories as a child was going to Prince's Island Park in Calgary every June to walk The World Partnership Walk. Back then, I looked forward to it because we made it a family affair. I would head down to the park with my family and it seemed that in exchange for walking a mere 8 kilometers or so, I would receive a delicious chili lunch, have a chance to part in some fun activities, get my face painted and even come away with a few prizes (it was all well worth the stickers).

One of the most obvious "summer" styles are wheat beers. These beers are generally bright, slightly tart or sour, quite refreshing, and generally weigh-in at 5 per cent or less. I've also got a BBQ recipe for Orange Glazed Pork Chops that includes a wheat beer.

Real Ice Cream: Accept No Substitutes

Not all ice cream products are created equal. If you are looking for the real thing, beware of imitations that are marketed as frozen desserts. These treats are called frozen desserts for a reason. Because they contain little or no dairy.

The first long weekend of the summer season is almost here, and with that comes the start of the great pilgrimage up north to cottages, campsites, and the great outdoors.

While the Victoria Day weekend is one we all happily anticipate, for emergency room staff and too many Ontarians, it is also the beginning of trauma season; the time when getting to and from the cottage can be a killer due to drunk drivers on congested cottage country roads.

Different cities have remarkable different sounds that can help tell the story of their place. So let's all take a deep breath and be reminded that the sounds around us are as much a part of our cityscape as the green space and architectural wonders.

Every July, around 10 Canadian universities scattered across the country play host to 500 students from all provinces/territories and even internationally. Although the program is for open-minded high school students who are not afraid to delve into any subject and become challenged or inspired in ways they never thought possible in one month, I hope to break the stereotype that this is "nerd camp". My program consisted of 56 total Shads and we lived in residence at the university.
