Savour Summer with New Recipes!

After a long, cold winter it is time to enjoy the warm weather and the wonderful, fresh foods that come along with that. Whether it’s blueberries, raspberries or fresh lettuce right out of your garden, the summer seems to make everything taste better! 

I’m excited to announce that there are ten beautiful and delicious new recipes available at www.myspiceitup.ca to celebrate the 10th issue of the Spice It Up! series of cookbooks. Next time you’re having a barbeque check out the Salmon Sliders with Balsamic Onions! My personal favourite is the Turkey Lasagna (make 2 and freeze 1). This was a big hit at my house! Check out the website for articles and recipes from all 10 of the cookbooks. 

In my last blog post I encouraged everyone to give feedback on food labels for a public consultation that was done by Health Canada. The new food label that is being proposed will include potassium (great news for those on a low or high potassium diet) but not phosphorus (bad news for people with kidney disease).

More consultation is underway and you can give feedback on the new proposed food label at:

Happy Summer!
