What Ellen’s Lovin
Let’s celebrate women’s achievements in food and agriculture this month. There are so many amazing women making a positive difference. I want to know them. This year, share with me the women who had an impact on your life, school, or career. I’ll share too. Let’s lift each other up and grow our community.
International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.
What Lynn’s Lovin
March is Nutrition Month!
This year, dietitians across the country want you to know that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to healthy eating. Eat in a way that works with your culture and traditions, preferences, and nutritional needs.
What does “Your Healthy” mean to you? Happy Nutrition Month!
What Jenn’s Lovin
Being a Professional Home Economist
What the heck’s a PHEc? Short for Professional Home Economist and in my area of the profession it means a human that specializes in helping families or individuals build skill so they can be their best. We work in areas of food, nutrition, families, child development, family finance, textiles and more! On March 23 we celebrate World Home Ec Day and our professional contributions to community.
This year I will reflect on the amazing PHEcs I’ve had the honour to learn from and the many, many folks that I’ve had the privilege of leading over the years. I truly see it as a gift that I can contribute to others’ skill growth and empowerment. It can be as simple as seeing the smile on a student’s face when they’ve mastered a can opener or filled their plate excitedly with new to them foods for the first time or an adult having an ah-ha moment while learning about science or farming practices or proudly sending me a photo of the gorgeous cinnamon buns they learned to make . The joy in my profession is endless. Thank you for welcoming me into your homes, schools and communities. Let’s continue to learn together and grow into the future.
Eat Well…Ellen, Lynn & Jenn
