Food Fall Food Trends

Whether it’s fashion trends, social trends or design trends, we all like to have a little something “in” in our lives (though we may not always like to admit it!). But the one thing that stays “in” through every season, from year to year, is health trends—taking good care of yourself and keeping an eye on your wellbeing (heart, cholesterol, digestion, weight, stress, etc.). Well now you can take care of two things at once: adopt the latest fall food trends AND take care of your health. 5 fall food trends Local food: Paying attention to where our food comes from is a growing trend. It’s up to all of us to try to reduce the distance our food has to travel from the farm to the table. Simple desserts: Opt for desserts (and foods in general) that are processed as little as possible. Ingredients in their simplest, purest forms should be placed at the top of your daily food list. Canning comeback: Home canning and preserving are coming back in a big way. It’s good for our health to always have home-cooked foods on hand – and it’s also good for our wallet! Adventurous eating: Try new foods that(…)

Woman sweating after a workout.

With Fall upon us, there’s no better time to go through your closet and see what you own in the way of workout clothing. Shortcomings in any of the major departments may just mean a little shopping trip is in store for you! Want to know why? Because doing regular exercise is not only good for your health, it also promotes digestion! So opt for comfy clothes that’ll keep you warm and looking good this winter. As far as practicality goes, pieces with adjustable waists, hems and cuffs are best for keeping the cold out. Windbreakers and waterproof pieces are wardrobe essentials in the Fall, what with the unpredictable weather and all. Plus, since layering is the key to staying warm, make sure to opt for fabrics that breathe easily and don’t absorb moisture and humidity. As for style, inject a little colour into the classic fall neutrals. At Lolë and Nike, black and taupe are accented with purple, fuchsia and royal blue, while at Puma, colourful prints have found their way onto the racks. Stella McCartney’s popular line for adidas has proven that it’s possible to combine performance and style. For several years now, she’s been pumping out stylish(…)

Greek Coffee

When I travel, I like to try typical local foods and attempt to adopt the culinary traditions of the country I’m visiting. To become even more immersed in the culture, I also try to get a feel for the pace and lifestyle of the locals to better understand the country and its people. Unfortunately I haven’t yet had an opportunity to visit Greece, but I had fun researching the distinctive features of the Greek lifestyle so that I could present them to you here. Let’s take a quick look at what I discovered. A typical day in Greece starts very early, i.e., around 7 a.m. after a quick breakfast. The morning is usually quite long and finishes with the “mesimeri,” a midday meal break lasting from about 1 to 3 p.m. This break is followed by a nap, which lasts until at least 5 or 5:30 p.m. After a few more hours of work during the period called “apoyevma” (afternoon), which lasts until about 8 p.m., it’s time to relax with friends or family while munching on a “meze” (hors d’œuvre). Dinnertime is around 9 or 10 p.m. Occasionally the evening ends with a trip to a café for pastries,(…)

Summer is here and playgrounds around the country are filled with kids of all ages coming together to play soccer, one of the most popular sports in the world. In fact, in 2011 more than 700,000 Canadians under the age of 18 signed up for one of the many soccer leagues across the country. This wave of popularity is also sweeping across Quebec. More than 200,000 soccer players make up the 300 teams in the province that play indoors or outdoors, and on either natural or synthetic fields. Played in almost every country, soccer, or “football” to our european neighbours, is the most-watched sport in the world. The popularity of soccer can be explained not only by its accessibility and simplicity, but also by the many physical and mental health benefits it has for children. It improves cardiovascular health, increases physical endurance, tones muscles, ensures good bone health, and fine-tunes coordination through the complex movements needed at various speeds. It can also help develop important personal qualities such as teamwork, perseverance, fair-play and strength of character. Register your kids for the 13th edition of the Danone Nations Cup!
