Oatmeal

Instant Oatmeal Getty Stewart | www.canolaeatwell.comI’ve had a ‘I want to love you but I don’t’ relationship with oatmeal since I was a child. It has only been over the past couple of years that I’ve truly begun to embrace the fibre-ful bowl of oats.

Recently I had the opportunity to learn how to make my own instant oatmeal mix with items I already have in my pantry.  For me, this means; less packaging and the ultimate control over the sodium, sugar and protein content of that delicious bowl of oats.

Thanks Getty Stewart, PHEc for the encouraging conversation and the excellent ‘how-to’ make your own instant oatmeal at home tutorial.

Baby showers!

What to get a newborn baby? How about a mini library of favorite books to set the child up for a lifetime of reading?  Ok, I didn’t come up with this idea.  It’s Oprah idea and I love it!

My baby book reading list favourites:

  1. Shel Silverstein books, no matter the age of the child, they are great books
  2. Goodnight Moon, Margaret Wise Brown
  3. Guess how much I love you, Sam McBratney
  4. Any Dr. Seuss book, always fun to read out loud

What is your favorite baby book to read or give as a gift?
