As a nutritionist, I know: it all comes down to digestion. We went into detail about why digestion is so important in our Digestion 101 series, and now we’re sharing this Digestion Supporting Salad. With ingredients that promote digestive health from start to finish, this salad is obviously healthy. But the combination of flavors is…

We sat down this week to chat with Bridgitte Longshore from Giddy Yoyo – producer of Canada’s most delicious, cleanest and healthiest (that’s right, HEALTHIEST!) chocolate. Giddy Yoyo also produces other amazing superfood products like red banana spears (one of our favorites).       Bridgitte gave us some amazing reasons Giddy Yoyo’s chocolate kicks…

Here are a few highlights: How Giddy Yoyo Came About: The product of an entrepreneurial family and a mom of 4 kids, the idea for Giddy Yoyo came from the lack of clean and responsibly produced but still tasty treats…
