Your apples are probably a year old - unless you buy them in season! Apples are treated and waxed before being kept in storage so that Canadians can enjoy them all year long. Buy your apples now while they are fresh! Mac Market is a great place to start:)

I chose a green bell pepper because in high school I did an experiment on the degradation of the ascorbic acid (vitamin C) content of yellow, red, and green peppers. Yellow has the highest amount of vit C when it is raw, then red, and green has the least. However, what many people don't know is that when you cook it, green maintains most of its vit C content, then red, and yellow loses it! So if you need your vitamin C, eat either yellow raw or green cooked!

 Don’t peel your apples! 

Did you know that about 2/3 of fibers and antioxidants are found in the peel? These antioxidants can reduce cell damages, which can be triggers to many diseases. Apples are one of the most cultivated and consumed fruits in the world, not to mention that they’re considered one of the healthiest as well. Don’t forget to add them to your diet!

French philosopher Voltaire would drink 50 cups of a coffee a day, so you could say I’m somewhat of a philosopher myself.

You scream, I scream, Ice cream! I love my milk and I love my sugar so ice scream is the best of both worlds! When I’ve had a bad day ice cream makes it better, when I’ve had a good day ice cream helps me celebrate. Thanks ice cream for always having my back!

I honestly think that my love for peanut butter is as strong as Noah's love for Allie in “The Notebook”.  But my peanut butter has to be the "good" type of peanut butter- no sugar, none of your hydrogenated oil- just pure peanut heaven!

Did you know that January 21st is National Granola Bar Day? I think everyday should be granola bar day since my love for granola grows day by day. Healthy granola bars made with wholesome ingredients really are the best snacks!

An international classic, it spreads far and wide, and on toast. Have you ever wanted to taste a bit of paradise at home? Nutella delivers in spoon fulls. Filled with sugary goodness whipped up into a jar of hazelnut happiness it's sure to make peanut butter jealous. Totally nuts over Nut-ella :)
