Coconut’s characteristic smell and flavour are like a ray of sunshine in my day. Just thinking about this exotic fruit, I can picture myself on the beach, my feet immersed in turquoise water and my skin being warmed by the hot southern sun. Whether it’s fresh, baked in macaroons or in a chicken sautée, coconut adds an exquisite taste to sweet or savoury dishes. I never get tired of it. But what about its nutritional content? First, you should know that all coconut products are not equal and do not have the same nutritional value. Coconut pulp or meat, the white part inside the fruit, is high in dietary fibre and also contains nutrients such as potassium, iron and magnesium. High in fat and calories, it should be consumed in moderation. As it has a pronounced flavour, a small amount is enough to give your dish a mild taste of the tropics. Coconut milk is made from the meat of the coconut, which is crushed in boiling water. It usually comes canned and is easily added to exotic recipes. Despite its name, coconut milk is not a substitute for cow’s milk because coconut milk is richer and contains very little(…)

travel benefits

We sometimes think of our travels as just the pretty pictures we take and the magnificent tan we get on tropical beaches. Yet the benefits of travel go beyond an eye-catching skin tone. Getting away is good for us, both psychologically and physically. Reduce daily stress One of the benefits often noticed when we travel is reduced stress. Lying on a beach with a good book or climbing the slopes of Everest, whatever activity you choose will probably help you to considerably reduce your stress after a few days, or even a few hours. Enjoy the sun’s benefits While the sun and its ultraviolet rays can be dangerous when we spend too much time exposed to them or without protection, the sun is also a formidable ally for our health. In fact, its rays enable us to synthesize vitamin D, essential to healthy bones. As well, the visible light emitted by the sun modifies the production of certain molecules in our bodies, which has a beneficial impact on our mood. Light therapy is now used to help treat seasonal depression during the winter, a period of the year when the percentage of sunshine is greatly reduced. Make a clean break(…)

You may not be able to take the “hectic” out of the holidays but you can follow a few tips to make them more relaxing and to allow yourself to enjoy quality family time. Talk About the Holiday Decisions in Advance Each family member has different expectations on how your holidays will go. Even small misunderstandings about what time you’re leaving for Grandma’s Christmas Eve can spark tension at a busy time. Both parents and kids should be clear on what is possible and what is not. Yes, the kids can have a movie marathon one night; no, they can’t refuse to go to grandma’s reception; and yes, both parents will take turns sleeping in. Show Your Gratitude Holidays can get tense because people start to feel unappreciated. Respond to each other more kindly and instead of feeling divided, the family will feel like a team. Thank the kids when they FINALLY finish signing Christmas cards and praise your mother-in-law’s efforts for making dinner for 12 in a cramped house—being grateful sets an example for the kids and diffuses tension that can build up. Make Chaos Fun Try and turn holiday mayhem into fun. Still packing the car and you’re(…)

Want to travel for the holidays but want to stay close to your family and don’t want to spend a fortune? Try a classic recipe from a foreign country, like this one for krumkakes. Take your taste buds on an adventure with these thin Christmas waffles from Norway. I replaced the traditional cardamom with a bit of orange zest and added some key lime yogurt to the whipped cream for more zing. What you get is rich and very aromatic, a perfect balance between exotic flavours and the ones we know and love.
