Earlier this year, you might recall that Liam and I went to an event where we played detective about nutrition facts and learned how to read nutrition fact labels on food to make the best possible choices when we are meal planning. The event hosts that invited us to that super fun event (Food & Consumer Products of Canada (FCPC), Health Canada, Retail Council of Canada (RCC), and the Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers (CFIG)) invited us to visit them again at the Vancouver Home and Design Show to learn more about making healthy choices. We are SO excited to be participating in this campaign, because we care about healthy food and helping people make good choices. We will DEFINITELY be writing about it later (because that’s what we do!)

The show looks like it’s going to be a blast! Other than learning about nutrition facts and finding new ways to eat better, there will be all sorts of speakers and celebrities, cooking demonstrations, pop up shops, and a multitude of chances to learn how to make your house (or apartment) a home. My family would really like me to watch the cooking demonstrations in particular (maybe they are trying to tell me something!) We will be at the show on Saturday, October 29 ourselves, so if you see us please do stop us and SAY HI, we are super friendly! 

Our friends gave us 2 tickets to give away to Sparkly Shoes and Sweat Drops readers so please enter below for your chance to win.

    We love fresh fruit and veggies, but seaweed and gluten free crackers with cheese are also popular with my kids.

    We like it simple, so a good sized bowl of organic blueberries will do the trick, but occasionally, we’ll have delicious popcorn with my homemade sauce, with garlic, dill weed, organic olive oil, a little butter, and some nutritional yeast. Salt and pepper, or according to taste buds, even a dash of cayenne.
