Golden Milk: the Secret to Keeping the Doctor Away

Want an alternative remedy to stay healthy and sleep like a baby? Try a cup of golden milk a day: made from turmeric golden paste, nutmeg, a mineral rich sweetener, and any milk you like.

Do you know what my greatest fear is in January and February? Getting really sick! Since this year I have yet to have succumbed to a real cold or flu I am extra nervous. With a big trip coming up in 3 weeks, I want to do everything in my power to build a strong immune system.

By the way golden milk is also excellent for insomnia! Never heard of golden milk? Keep reading to find out all the wonderful benefits it can bestow on you and get the recipe to make it at home.

Dulse Pull Apart Rolls with Chia, Flax and Sesame Seeds

Packed with 3 super healthy seeds, these fun Dulse Pull Apart Rolls with Chia, Flax and Sesame Seeds will win the heart of all bread lovers, especially those with a weakness for the sea!

Summer is going by too fast! It seems like it was just #twelveloaves a week ago but here we are already with my third participation. In this group we bake a bread every month with the addition of the monthly theme flavor or ingredient. This month we were asked to add seeds.

I was not even planning on participating this month because my schedule is just that insane! But I purchased a weird food ingredient (we love those at CEE) on my trip and I could fit it in my recipe, so here we are mixing up some dulse seaweed with chia, flax and sesame seeds.

Lamb Bone Broth: follow your gut

Mineral and gelatin packed bone broths are so good for you and they taste wonderful. Today we will make Lamb Bone Broth but with a most unexpected bone segment, the head.

Soooooo remember back in April I had challenged myself to drink homemade bone broth every day for 1 month? And I blogged about it twice with recipes? And then I went on a cruise and life happened! Well I did indeed complete my 1 month challenge but somehow I never got around to post my two final bone broth recipes. Wait no more here is the third one and the fourth will follow in August.

I have to admit something to you to. I am a little scared to post the next two recipes. Why? Because they are – how should I say – graphic in nature when it comes to unusual animal carcass parts! The fish recipe is obviously made with fish skeletons but they are whole with head, fins and tail. Today’s bone broth recipe is made with lamb – a lamb’s entire head!

Dairy Farmers of Canada created a unique way to show how yogurt is part of a balanced diet

Fight high blood pressure and ensure you are eating your daily recommended servings with the Get Enough Helper App

I have said it before and I will say it again: my name is Evelyne and I am a dairy junky. Cheese, milk, ice cream, yogurt…I love it all. I will also make a confession: since I live alone I do drink milk right out of the carton, a lot! Don’t judge! So it is my pleasure to help and promote milk and dairy products when I can, especially when it is for a better health and for a good cause.

When Dairy Farmers of Canada attended The Health, Sports & Lifestyle Expo in Vancouver, they created a powerful and captivating performance to highlight the surprising benefits of yogurt, which aids in the prevention of high blood pressure.

The performance, and the film of it, were made to promote the free Get Enough Helper App, which helps people track what they eat based on recommendations from Canada’s Food Guide.

In the video, we see a gymnast stacking and balancing a series of chairs in front of conference attendees. The gymnast then climbs, twists and contorts his body at seemingly impossible angles on top of the chairs, to show how far we each stretch to find balance in our day.

The performance is intensely physical and dangerous – much like high blood pressure – and encourages the audience to use the Get Enough Helper App to help the fight against high blood pressure. Each day someone uses the App, Dairy Farmers of Canada donates $1 on their behalf to the Heart & Stroke Foundation to support the fight against high blood pressure.

The performance is spellbinding, engaging and stunning, and the video shows conference attendees watching in rapt attention while enjoying complimentary yogurt parfaits and savouring the surprising health benefits of yogurt.

Have a look!

Dairy Farmers of Canada show milk’s health benefits in a captivating way

If I had to pick one food I love that separates me from the rest of most adults, it would be milk. I know most adults grow out of it but I am obsessed with milk, just like my mom to this day.

She always joked it would be cheaper to have a cow than buy so much milk for me. Hey it is her fault, she always told me it was good for me and for my bones. Turns out milk is also great to help to protect against colorectal cancer, a malignant tumour that starts in cells of the colon or rectum. With my recent acid reflux issues all things related to digestion get my full attention. So I wanted to share you this message from the Dairy Farmers of Canada:

Dairy Farmers of Canada wanted to highlight all the surprising ways milk benefits health – like how it
could help reduce the risk of colorectal cancer.
