Canadian winters are cold.  Sometimes brutally cold!  This can make people hibernate and reduce their level of physical activity, which impacts your overall fitness level.

We all love fresh produce, but what happens when we’re looking for one of our favourite vegetables or fruit and it’s not in the produce aisle?  Or when you’re shopping on a budget and some of the vegetables/fruit you love are outside of your price range?  Do you completely abandon the idea of eating them just because they’re frozen or canned?

The changes in season often mimic the changes we see on our dinner plates.  Have you ever noticed that summer meals are vibrant and bright – while late fall and winter start to look a bit dull and dreary?  Don’t let that happen this year!
