 This was my first attempt at making chocolate- and it wasn't perfect. But with some tweaking, I think this could be my new favourite pastime. There is literally nothing unhealthy about this chocolate, which makes it a great addition to your diet. When you start off with unsweetened baking chocolate you are looking at a decent source of a number of minerals including zinc, copper, manganese, magnesium and iron. The important thing to remember is what kind of sweetener you use. The higher the glycemic load of your sweetener, the less healthy this treat will be!

"I'm a big advocate for movement; the more you can move in your day the better! A recent rat study showed how effective an increase in the level of movement within a day can influence the functioning of the nervous system. The New York Times summarized the study in their article "How Inactivity Changes the Brain".

As always this time of year, there is a momentum and expectation of making resolutions for the New Year.  And just as common is the jumping off of the band wagon.

Why is it that we can be so clear on setting goals but yet be so poor at honouring our commitments to ourselves?

The time has finally come. This is the year I am going to put in a great effort to be more mindful of the foods I am consuming. Obviously, cutting out gluten and refined sugars are high priorities. However, before I focus on eliminating foods from my diet, I would like to start on a more positive note by including healthy foods in my diet. Foods which are fun, cheap and easy to make at home. Foods such as pickles, kim chee and sauerkraut. Yum! As scary as it may sound, I am going to try my hand at making my own fermented foods.
