My family and I enjoyed the delicious, healthy, ready-to-heat stir-fries from Fresh Attitude. These single-size servings can easily be cooked in a microwave oven without the mess or in a wok for a quick nutritious meal or to serve as a side dish to share. Canada's Food Guide recommendations have encouraged us to add more fruits and vegetables to our diet, and I am glad that Veg Pro International, the vegetable producer behind the popular Fresh Attitude salads and baby lettuce blends has this new line of fresh vegetable Stir Fries.

I made these delicious Indian Tea Cookies following the recipe from the Indian Vegetarian Feast book by Anjum Anand. This book has lots of simple and healthy vegetarian dishes that we can easily make for our family and friends. I like that all the dishes and sweets have an array of flavour in them. The beautiful pictures on this book will entice the readers to make the dishes, and try them. Th book is separated by breakfast and brunch, drinks, appetizers and snacks, salads, broils and grills, vegetables, cheese, beans, and eggs, grains, and desserts.

Making a resolution on New Year’s Eve is as much a part of celebrating as fireworks, however a recent Kellogg’s Special K survey revealed that only 23 per cent of Canadians have actually achieved their resolution goal. This year, instead of making a New Year’s resolution, it’s time to make a #2015Revolution! A Revolution is big, bold, and positive, and it’s the kind of goal that nearly 50 per cent of survey respondents say they have always wanted to achieve but have never tried.

My family has been using coconut products for decades, as many of our ethnic food contained some type of product that is extracted from the coconut tree. Although, North American medical professional used to criticize coconut products because of its saturated fat, recent research shows the saturated fat found in coconut oil and other saturated fats are different. It is now known that using coconut oil protect oneself from heart disease. Coconut products have lots of nutritional benefits such as fibre, protein, the ability to fight infections and beneficial use for skin and hair.

Everyone in my family enjoys Hampton Creek Mayo on a variety of sandwiches and salads. We got the opportunity to check out their Just Cookie Dough, which has become a family favourite.
