Vitalite with julie small

When I discovered Mixit, I fell in love with the concept of personalizing my breakfast cereal according to my wishes. When Stephanie, co-owner of Mixit offered me to create a very healthy Ready Mix, I accepted on the spot! And from the beginning, I did not want to create a cereal that would only rime with health. Because I cannot eat food just because it is nutritious. It must first please my taste buds! That is why I am proud to say that my cereal "Vitality Source" is very healthy, tasty and...

When did we start celebrating Thanksgiving?

Ble

Around the world we celebrate the harvest season this time of the year. But since when do we celebrate Thanksgiving? The roots of Thanksgiving date back more than 2,000 years, when Celtic priests and druids celebrated the season of harvest. For the Celts and Slavs, the custom was linked to the belief of a mother seed. In Canada, Thanksgiving rites included local celebrations of abundant harvests, but no specific day was chosen before the eighteenth century.  Thanksgiving was celebra...

I’ve always been a bit of a workaholic. Every passing day, I become more convinced that if I want to keep the same pace, I need to manage stress and pay attention to what I feed my body. I’ve found that by eating better, I catch fewer colds and viruses. And, I also have a family that I want to keep healthy.   My 8 year old son got a bit chubby a few years ago and I got him to slim down by feeding him healthy food that he happens to like. I found ways to hide good nutrients in tasty food. I...

For most of us, the morning staple is a mound of flakes, carelessly poured into a bowl and covered with a few glugs of milk. A mindless meal to be eaten in minutes while we scan news headlines, watch sports highlights or empty the dishwasher. On some days, the monotony of cereal is most of its charm. But what if it could be more? What if cereal were to become a handcrafted and carefully sourced meal tha...
