Now I am tired but let’s plan another cooking’s week tomorrow for the next Thursday’s market! I would like to do some jellyjelly, use the giant kale leaves from the garden and try to pickle few things 🌝 #farmermarket #cooking #organicfarm #organicproduct #fromfarmtotable #northwestterritories #yellowknife #vegetables #cheesemaker

    Sometimes I take a picture of what I eat and think ‘hmm this looks like mush doesn’t it?’ 😂
.
Then I remember why - because the bottom line is this with nutrition, reading books understanding more about health and appetite and staying lean/strong and feeling good.
.
The bottom line is simple.  Eat less starchy carb (replace rice with potato), cut out fats (replace with small amt extra virgin oil, avo, walnut), eat more high quality protein sources veg or otherwise, lots more vegetables, lots more fruit - it gets the job done.  Does not have to be fancy - just needs to work - sometimes the fancyness gets in the way of the functionality of it.
.
People ask what should I eat or how many calories - you say eat lots more vegetables and replace empty foods - they don’t like it?  What else can I say? 🥦🥑🥬
If we could all eat pizzas, chocolate and stay ripped believe me I would be all for that lol!  Sadly it’s not to be, been there tried that - thought I could do it, nope.
.
How do you get motivation for gym?  Go every morning for an hour - now you don’t ‘not’ want to go.  It’s the way to go.

    // Home-Made 😊 // For all of you who didn't know, I'm actually a student studying Food and Beverage Business and it's been a long time since I've updated so I thought I'll share on what I've cooked for one of the lesson. This was a plating class and we made Baked Chicken seasoned with herbs, Stir-fry seasoned vegetables, Pilaf rice as well as hollandaise sauce to complete the meal. The chicken was juicy even though it was chicken breast and the sauce was able to enhance the flavour of the chicken. The pilaf rice was cooked perfectly and was really fragrant with the herbs cooked with it. The stir-fried vegetables were cooked well done and still slightly crunchy but was too oily as we added too much butter however it was savoury and tasty. It was a really simple dish and was cooked within 2 hours. 😊 //

    One of my favorite summer eats, corn salad. It’s easy, full of fiber, polyphenols, and just a little bit of good fat. I keep my fat and sugar intake low to keep my blood sugar and cholesterol in check. Your body makes apolipoproteins to bind lipids (fat) so they can be carried in your blood (fats can’t travel alone unsupervised in your blood) together they’re called lipoproteins, examples are cholesterol, LDL, HDL. There are different types of apolipoproteins, and the one that deals with cholesterol is ApoE, it’s primarily in the brain/CNS. There are 3 different versions of the ApoE gene, E2, E3, E4. You get one from each parent. The most common is E3, its considered neutral, E4 is associated with a higher risk of dementia. Caucasian and Japanese with E4 from both parents have 10-30 times the risk of developing Alzheimer’s, BUT it’s not a primary determinant of getting the disease, lifestyle is. People who have two E4’s but have a good diet and exercise can significantly reduce their risk. Improving lifestyle has also been shown to reverse mild cognitive impairment. If you’ve done @23andme you have your ApoE status, and you can get an idea of how you process fat. Either way a healthy lifestyle is a good bet.  The corn 🌽 salad is: 5 ears of cooked/scraped corn, 1/2 cup onion, 1/2 cup basil, 3 Tbsp cider vinegar, 2 Tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp kosher salt and 1:2 tsp of pepper.

    Lunch for one hungry breasfeeding mum is served! 
Kaleslaw with tahini and avocado dressing, roasted sweet potato and sliced cucumber.

I love eating a colourful meal loaded with veg. The more colours you eat the more variety of nutrients you get. 
Lately I've been trying to increase my vegetables because it just makes me feel more energised. 
Challenge yourself to eat more vegetables and see for yourself how such a simple change can make a huge difference to how you feel!

Everything on my plate is from #Boxdivvy (excluding the seeds, apple cider vinegar and tahini in my salad dressing). #Boxdivvyglenbrook #vegetables #veganlunch #supportlocalfoodproducers

    First tomato harvest! 🍅
Look at these ripe chaps - definitely worth the wait! These were delicious with a handful of home grown basil and mozzarella from my favourite cheese shop. Simple is best when it comes to eating your own veg - straight off the vine and onto the plate 🌿✔️

    Squash! 😬
Pleased with how this fella is growing, I've propped it up and look at it every night when I come home 🤦‍♂️ I've found butternut squash SO hard to pollenate and grow, has anyone else?!

    Meet Amber Allen @thefairlylocalvegan from  Windsor, Ontario, Canada 🇨🇦 “I am a zero waste activist, a maker, a mother, and perhaps maybe a little eccentric. I love doing things "the hard way" from making my own fermented saukraut to growing cabbage for said saurkraut... I bake my own bread, forage for my mushrooms, build my own water saving systems, and buy food without packaging as local and as close to home as possible. 
I think lawns are boring, and unnecessary. I watch people spray their lawns with RoundUp, and panic about minor things they deem imperfections. I believe that food should be grown and tended to instead of lawns. Grow flowers, grow food, grow anything but a lawn! By growing your own food you become a rebel- someone who is breaking the societial cycle of how we engage with our food, and who breaks away from not knowing how their food comes onto their plate. I love knowing where my food is coming from and how it was grown!

I believe that everyone should learn to grow their own food. I think the process of getting to know your soil, planting seeds, growing seedlings, caring for your plants, and finally harvesting your crop is educational in so many ways! It teaches you patience, empathy, habit, science, botany, skills, and so much more! I grow my own food because it's rewarding, better for our bellies and for our budget, and it teaches me (and our children) the value of life.

I think seed saving, sharing plants, and sharing food are some of the best things you can do for your community! I also love supporting my local farmer’s market- and the makers, farmers and cooks who sell there! Voting with your money is important!

If you are considering gardening and it's a toss up between a lawn or a garden- go with the garden! I find that I meet so many like-minded people and have so many rewarding conversations about growing gardens now! Share food, share knowledge, share seeds!”
