Soul Bowls

Cooler weather makes us crave the comfort of a hot meal. Nothing is more pleasurable than inhaling the heady scents of a hearty stew or a hot mug of soup.

Cooler weather makes us crave the comfort of a hot meal. Nothing is more pleasurable than inhaling the heady scents of a hearty stew or a hot mug of soup.

Often we overlook indulging in such meals, fearing the caloric consequences of a rich dish plus the effort and time it takes to prepare. By using more vegetables and less meat, as well as choosing ingredients that don’t need to simmer for hours, cooking time is dramatically slashed while health benefits are increased.
In keeping with Diabetes Month, these one-bowl comforts are good choices. Every hour more than 20 people are diagnosed with diabetes. Diet is key: to eat for diabetes management and prevention, meals need to centre on whole grains, lean meat, and fish, plus a ton of veggies.

Homemade Bread Day

What better way to celebrate Homemade Bread Day this November 17 than learning to bake your own bread? Roll up your sleeves, flex your fingers, and prepare to enjoy the tactile pleasures of bread making in a few easy steps.

Starting with rapid rise yeast and 100 percent whole wheat flour, this is a dough that doesn’t require a lot of fiddling. Simply mix, knead, then let it rise right in the pan before popping it into the oven. It’s that easy. Really!
