We’re not big fans of resolutions around here. They’re too stressful, and they pile on the guilt when we don’t keep them. But that doesn’t mean we don’t like change, and really, what better time than the New Year to make one little change for a big impact? For inspiration, we asked a selection of well-known Canadian parents including a fitness expert, a nutritionist, a chef, an author and several business folks from across Canada for the one small change they’ll be making in 2014. Up for a small change yourself? Feel free to adopt (or adapt) one of theirs or think of your own. And all the best for a wonderful 2014 to you and yours!
In a couple of days, the sugar content in our house will shoot from ‘reasonable’ to ‘code red,’ thanks to the spookiest night of the year and a serious dedication to the art of trick-or-treating. So we’re on the hunt for ways to still enjoy desserts and treats as a family without going into sugar shock. Which is why we were happy to give Shockingly Healthy!™ Brownies and Blondies a try.
