Win a Kellogg's Vector Prize Pack

During summer everyone in my family prefers cold breakfasts. Most of the time we try to have a quick, healthy breakfast so we can get a head start to enjoy the outdoors. We enjoyed the Vector Granola Honey Almond Flavour and had it along with berries and yogurt, and in some occasions we had it with milk. This new product is designed to help meet the nutritional needs of active, health conscious people. Half a cup of Vector Granola made with oats, honey, and almonds has 5g of fibre and 10 vitamins and minerals. It comes in a resealable pouch, so storing the granola is easy and is perfect to take on camping trips.

Make Your Own Unique Cereal with Mixit #Giveaway

I can never find a cereal that has all the ingredients I want in one package that suits my preference and taste. Usually, I mix different types of cereals together and add in ingredients to make it my own, which is not ideal when mornings get busy. When I first heard of Mixit, I thought it is a fabulous idea because you get to make your cereal just the way you want it online! and not in the kitchen :)

Ranchified Avocado Dip

I am excited to announce that I was selected, as one of Canada's top online influencers to participate in the Hidden Valley Ranch Ranchify Recipe Challenge. We usually like having the Original and Spicy Ranch dressing with our vegetables and salads. I was thinking how I could ranchify the Original Ranch Hidden Valley dressing in a different way by incorporating seasonal ingredients, and experimented it to make this delicious, flavourful dip that my family and I enjoyed. 
To make this dip, I used
1/2 ripe avocado
3 to 4 tbsp ranch dressing
1/4 tsp salt to taste
1/4 tsp pepper to taste
paprika and celery leaves to garnish

I pureed about 3-4 tbsp of ranch dressing with 1/2 ripe avocado, salt and pepper. I piped the dip mixture into individual plates and sprinkled paprika and garnished with celery leaves. This dip tastes fabulous with baked breaded fish, steamed vegetable and bread. 
I think it is easy to incorporate the Ranch dressing into our recipes because they are flavourful and don't have an overwhelming sharp taste. Anyone who likes Ranch dressings will definitely enjoy it with vegetables and fruits such as avocado, tomatoes and more.

The launch of avocado and spinach toppings in Subway sandwiches and salads

Subway restaurants are the world's largest submarine sandwich franchise, with more than 39,000 locations in over 100 countries. Subway Canada introduces seasonal ingredients, avocado and spinach to their line up of sandwich and salad topping for a limited time in over 3000 Subway locations in Canada. 
I was able to attend a Subway Canada location to taste the healthy, delicious addition of avocado and spinach in my favourite Subway tuna sandwich. At the event, I was able to become a sandwich artist and make my own sandwich :)
I like having fresh, healthy options, as meal times become more exciting and satisfying. Subway has added spinach to their regular topping and avocado is available for an additional charge at participating locations. 
Many of us know the nutritional benefits of avocado and spinach. Here is a little reminder, so we can include these seasonal ingredients more in our diet. 
Avocado has soluble fibre that aids in digestion, the monounsaturated fat that raises good HDL-cholesterol and lowers harmful triglycerides, and reduces the risk of heart disease. The Lutein found in avocado helps with eye health. Avocado also has magnesium, potassium, B vitamins and folic acids. Spinach is low in calories and high in magnesium, folate, iron, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids. 
Don't forget to add avocado and spinach to your favourite Subway sandwich next time you go to one of the participating locations, as it is seasonal and only available for a limited time.

Kashi Blueberry Oat Clusters & Flakes Cereal Giveaway

Kashi Blueberry Oat Clusters Flakes cereal has a healthy taste that makes it a wonderful breakfast.  1 cup of Kashi Blueberry Oat Clusters and Flakes cereal has 45% of daily amount of fibres we need and it helps lower cholesterol.  This cereal is made out of natural ingredients that have crunchy flakes and whole grain oat clusters with sun-ripened blueberries.  I wish the cereal had blueberries that are visible so we can taste it and see it in the cereal :) as my children found it to be deceiving that the box showed blueberries but they didn't see the blueberry pieces.  The cereal doesn't have artificial flavours or colours and it is free of trans fats and low in saturated fat.    
This cereal can be found in most grocery stores and natural food stores across Canada.

Giveaway:
Win your own box and see how it tastes :)  This giveaway is open to people in Canada and ends on March 15th.  Please enter through the rafflecopter below.
Update: The winner is Areta
