Working Together for Health: York Region Communities Gather for Passport to Wellness 2013

Working Together for HealthThank you to all those who attended this year’s Passport to Wellness 2013 at the Aurora Cultural Centre!  It was wonderful to have seen a good community presence, and to have other energetic health professionals gathered under one roof in support of the Alzheimer’s Society of York Region, the York Region Food Network and a healthy community.

Do You Suffer from Beige Food Syndrome?

Are the foods on your plate all beige?  Are you, your spouse or children choosing colourful foods limited to rainbow-coloured skittles, fruit loops and ketchup?  If so, then you probably suffer from beige food syndrome.

Your naturopathic health tip: don’t save the best for last!  Fill your plate with salad before proceeding to other menu options.

Does your salad have at least 5 different colours?  If it doesn’t, dress it up!  Add liberal amounts of the following eight super food ingredients, which also happen to be terrific belly-busters!

1. Purple kale.

2. Baby bok choy.

Need “cheat” tips keeping meal preparation easy?  Purchase prewashed mixed leafy field greens with herbs for your salad base.

How fresh produce savvy were you?  Could you identify all the produce listed, without looking at the names?  Don’t suffer another day from beige food syndrome and speak with your Naturopathic Doctor about how to incorporate healthier meals into your hectic schedule.
