Worst Client Series: Midnight  Cupboard Raid 

Triscuits

Dates

Marshmallows

Nutella

Pumpkin seeds

2 Cheestrings

And “your dad’s sausage”. 

And a glass of water and 2 omega-3s from Costco. 

Yep. He declared he was not satiated. And he then went and ate “a handful of everything in the pantry”. 

I then grabbed my phone. Wanted to tweet the stuff Mr R Ginger says. But then I rethought. A blog post is much more permanent.

“Oh and 4 Hallloween-sized granola bars.  But I’m going to the gym in the morning. Two Folgers K-cups and 2 litres of water.”

Does this sound like anyone you know?

Maybe it’s even you!

Going to the gym to work off a sneaky cupboard raid or cheat meal doesn’t fix the food. 

I’m tired but to be continued. I hope you had a good laugh. I’ll read tomorrow to him and we will laugh again. Hopefully together. He says “whatever”.  Good night. I have my work cut out for me.

My debut “bites” on the radio 

I was asked by a local radio station reporter, KD Grainger, to talk about Nutrition Bites. She caught wind of my Kids Cooking Classes and thought it would be a great thing to chat about. 

I’m not super video savvy yet but I thought I’d try my best at sharing her coverage on my passionate take on cooking. 

First here’s s link to her SoundCloud radio link. Click here to hear Nutrition Bites talking about kids cooking

Then to read the rest of the article follow this link to read X FM & KD Grainger’s report on Nutrition Bites, but cooking doesn’t have to

The video link is good but honestly I not a fan of watching myself. My animated self just needs to relax more I think. So I just need more practice.  Anyone else want to help me with my interviewing skills?

But all jokes aside, I’m happy to see that the first thing she covered: no mandatory home economics in schools anymore. 

And with that being said, why when the government is looking at health strategies they focus on physical activity improvements but don’t want to put student/child nutrition as their responsibility?

I hope Trudeau, who is as young as me and with a family of his own too, will read this blog post. Then hopefully he can make history by bringing back the basics in our education system. And yes, cooking healthy from scratch is a skill that is just as important as math and sex ed. 

I wish the public got more upset to ask their elected officials to do more to teach their kids things that were taken for granted they would learn from their busy parents, and was removed from grade 7 & 8 curriculum by their parents’ generation. 

So perhaps out there, you know someone who could share this and use social media for good. 

Get behind the idea that we are missing the basics yet essential things we are teaching our kids.
