It’s Not Easy Being Green

Last year marked 30 years for myself being meat-free, completely vegan for 19, and when one hears that someone is Vegetarian or Vegan it is a natural assumption that we eat loads of salads and get tons of greens into our daily lives.  Some days yes, some days no.

Prebiotics vs. Probiotics

Probiotic supplementation has become an important part of the daily routine for many people.  Research continues to support the role of probiotics in a variety of preventative measures and intervention strategies, and approval of these health claims by regulatory bodies like Health Canada further speaks to the value these important supplements provide.  But getting the most out of your probioticsupplement requires additional work, especially if you are following a restrictive diet.
