Cabin Fever Cures

NewYear2016One of the biggest problems people face in the winter is they cocoon in their houses and inevitably start snacking, watch Netflix, more snacking, catch the game more snacking and so on.  This is where weight gain can sneak up on you.

Enjoying the Canadian winter can be great fun. I remember many a great sunny afternoon cross country skiing in Waterloo and Centennial Parks. Waterloo Park next to the old Lions pool had this giant wooden slide you dragged your toboggan up the ramp in the back  then you went down the hill on the other side of the road. Dodging pine trees at mach 3 was definitely thrilling. My kids say that explains alot.

Maintaining weight in summer many people find easier mostly because they are too busy to snack much.  Keeping yourself busy outside the house in winter will also keep the snacking down to healthy levels.

Nothing to do in the winter?  Here’s a list of 97 things to do in Waterloo region from trip advisor https://www.tripadvisor.ca/Attractions-g154993-Activities-Region_of_Waterloo_Ontario.html

Give The Gift Of Health

Give the Gift of HealthI was talking to my doctor the other day and the topic of weight loss came up.  He was telling me every person he refers to the dietician always has at least one demon that is causing the majority of their weight problems. Whether it’s that pastry every morning, the 1000 calorie coffee drink everyday, late night sweets snacking, and so on …  No matter how good they are for the rest of the day that one thing sinks all their good work.

How did soldiers eat on the front and families at home during wartime?

Poppies_in_the_Sunset_on_Lake_GenevaWe will be taking time today to remember those that have come before and what they did in sacrifice to shape a world for their children.

In trying to honour memories either close to home or trying to imagine for many of us it is helpful to think about daily life.  Nothing is done more on a daily basis than eating, so here are a few items you might find interesting to help you connect.

The Canada War museum has some wonderful online photo archives. This one is about daily routines in the trenches, here are a couple guys having lunch.

Ever wonder what they actually ate on the front?  Here is a blog on various official recipes.

What about at home? This is a fascinating pdf of a booklet given to Canadian families in 1940 by the CMA (Canadian Medical Association) with weekly amounts and prices for families of various sizes.

The Canadian Army does research into rations and recipe development. Here is a recent look at what new meal items they may have in the future.

TOO. MUCH. CANDY.

candy_tableHalloween is a great time for having fun with the kids. For the kids you just can’t get away from the candy and it wouldn’t really be the same without it.  My kids also love getting the halloween themed pencils, erasers, stickers, notepads, anything glow in the dark – those are their prized wins from a night of trick or treating.

For yourself, what do you do with all the left over candy? Get it out of sight and mind, bring it to work and share your bounty. A little treat for a large group is not a big deal, a big treat for a little you will be a big deal.

Next year when you have a party for friends get creative.  All those bright colours and flavours in candy are just trying to replicate the bright colours and wonderful tastes in naturally ripe fruit and veggies.  We have included some links to a few ideas below

The best thing after a halloween binge is to try and get back to eating healthy.  Lakelands Diet Delivery can help you out will that. Sign up today and we will do all the work to get you a healthy balanced meal.
