10 simple ways to use Yoghurt for variety and taste in your daily meals

Alka Chopra

Consulting Dietitian at Nutrition Camp
Hi there! My name is Alka Chopra and I am a Registered Dietitian and a Certified Diabetes Educator. I have a motto when it comes to nutrition: It must be simple or it is not done.

A few years ago, when I was teaching Food Safety at a Community College, a discussion started about good old yoghurt. I went on to describe the method of making yoghurt at home and how I grew up eating yoghurt every single day. One of the student made a comment “Oh my god, are you […]

Combat Colds And Seasonal Allergies On Top Of Year-Round Allergies

Jane Lawson

I'm a 20-something on a mission to defining myself, and ending stigma surrounding allergies, autism and out-of-the-box thinkers. In my free time, I write the unconventional web series I've been creating, tend to my garden, and binge-watch stuff on Netflix. I blog at janepedia.com.

Toward the end of October, I began feeling it—sore throat, itchy eyes, runny nose. I think colds and seasonal allergies are worse when we have year-round allergies, too. Colds and seasonal allergies are so much like allergic reactions—so on top of your typical allergies, you’re basically chillaxing with allergy symptoms. Sure, the trees are dormant. […]

Hello everyone! This is my favorite time of year. The air is getting colder. the leaves are getting crunchier. And (best of all) the food is getting heartier. As we head into the holidays, I am faced with the always uncomfortable reality of being the only vegan at the table. I don’t want to bring a […]

I love the Fall. Crisp red leaves crunching beneath my knee-high black boots. Steaming mugs of dark chocolate cocoa  between mittened hands. The sliver of a crescent moon breaking through stark white clouds on Halloween night. There’s just something magical about it all. But one of the absolute biggest reasons I love this season so much […]

Fun fact: breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. My husband is the opposite and thinks of breakfast more as a requirement than as a delicious abundance of goodness and flavor! I MUST have breakfast as my first meal, even if I wake up exceptionally late. If I sleep until noon (not common, but […]

Thanksgiving in Canada is at the beginning of October. Which is great because that means our holiday season starts sooner, and dinner doesn’t interrupt football! This was my first holiday meal as a vegetarian and I was excited and a little worried. What’s on most people’s plates for thanksgiving dinner? Turkey and ham…and sometimes the […]

October is here, and I can’t enter any store without running into Halloween decor. More specifically: Halloween candy and treats. But us allergic people have a different kind of Halloween. For example, instead of orange pumpkins, we have teal pumpkins. This week, I’m sharing allergy-free, gluten-free Halloween candy and treats that are food-based. Next week, […]

This weekend, I went to a wedding shower for a cousin who is getting married this year (I have two who are getting married this year). I almost said no, because I didn’t think it was optional, but the cousin kept saying it’d be really cool if I was there and that it was fun, […]

After my family, travel is my greatest love. There is something about finding myself in a new country that helps me, well, find myself. When I travel, I learn about new cultures, see historical sites, and learn how the rest of the world lives. But as much as I love traveling, I have learned that traveling as […]

It’s a problem. People you know and people you don’t know are making comments about your allergies or eating habits. When you rant to a trusted friend, they shrug you off and tell you to ignore it. But ignoring isn’t easy. I’ve found ignoring does nothing but bury a problem or situation, so I’m going […]
