Planning breakfast is not always an easy task. We need to determine what our tastes and food preferences are, then find out what constitutes a healthy diet, take time to go to the supermarket to buy all the ingredients we need, and finally take the time to prepare these delicious meals.

New Year

As a registered dietitian, a good part of my job is to share my expertise with people who care about their health and nutrition. However, another component is to impart knowledge to students, the future of the field. I recently had the chance of working with Josée Lessard-Harvey, a fourth-year student in Nutrition at the Université de Montréal, during her internship at Danone. She wrote up a couple of blog posts, including the one below. Enjoy! Holiday meals typically come with all the fixins’, often putting your willpower to the test. The following tips will help you enjoy the festivities without the guilt—oh, and there’s no need to shun your hosts by turning down their generous offerings, either. Moderation tastes so much better!: Alcohol, aside from being loaded with calories, alters our judgment and keeps up from feeling full, making us want to consume more than our fair share. Alternating with a glass of lemony water, mixing your wine or drink with soda water or sipping on your glass slowly are good ways to control your alcohol consumption. Don’t skip any meals, just eat lighter!: Snacking on something healthy before leaving for the party can help keep your hunger at(…)

You could be improving your digestion already and not even know it, especially if you exercise or do yoga regularly. But, if you know your digestive system could use a little kick, yoga experts say these three exercises could help move things along. Top 3 exercises to improve digestion: Walk. Gentle and moderately paced, taking a 15-minute walk after a meal is a great way to get your system going. It can help alleviate bloating and also nix that sometimes sluggish-sleepy feeling we can experience after eating. Breathe. There’s an art to doing it right. Sit in an upright position and simply breathe in through your nostrils for as long as you can, and then out through your nose for as long as you can, no rushing (if you’re congested, breathe out through your mouth). Do this for 10 breaths, particularly after eating. The relaxed feeling will help you digest food with ease. Stretch. Simply lie on your back and bring your knees to your chest, wrapping your arms around your knees. Do your breathing exercise and let your legs rest on your chest for three to five minutes or for as long as is comfortable. If needed, you can(…)

Mikado

It’s really hard to reinvent oneself when the time comes to prepare a cold buffet for the holidays. Personally, I like to keep the spirit of the old while adding a few dashes of modernity. Our version of the Mikado salad, with its vivid colours and bold flavours, represents a perfect balance between tradition and originality. In addition, the freshness of the Greek yogurt will be more than welcome as a relief for stomachs feeling the burden of those numerous holiday feasts!

Pain, tingling and numbness in your arms, neck, back and shoulders could be telling you it’s time to pare down your purse, ASAP. Your bag is too heavy if… You weigh it and the number (in pounds) is in double digits. When you put your purse down, you’re out of breath and/or grunt.  You have a red mark left behind on your shoulder. It takes you longer than a few seconds to get to the bottom of your bag.  You have dumped the contents of your purse on the floor, more than once, to find your cell phone, keys or lipstick. If this sounds like you, here are five simple steps to clean out your purse: Empty and sort. Make a list of essential, “must-have” items that you use daily like your cell phone, wallet, keys or day planner. Everything else is considered a “secondary”, like your favourite book, magazine, camera, gym clothes or hairbrush (see #5 for what to do with these). Sort through loose papers and receipts and toss what(…)
