GET BACK TO YOUR NORMAL SELF FAST WITH THESE HEALING SUPER-FOODS   When you’re feeling ill a quick recovery is important especially if your employer doesn’t offer sick days. Losing valuable income when you are off sick from work will put a dent in your monthly budget so take care of yourself first and fast. Just about every country has a special way to treat themselves when feeling ill and with that comes a host of recipes and miracle cures that might just do the trick. Simple foods and drinks are what have been successful when feeling ill for decades and continue to end up on grocery lists as an alternative to modern medicine. Just because you are ill with the cold, flu, nausea or other seasonal health related illness you don’t have to jump to the medicine cabinet right away. Talk to your doctor or naturopath for recommendations about first steps to take when you are feeling ill. With the winter months ahead of us many of us will catch a cold or the flu which means knowing what you can and can’t eat or drink is important.

Warm Cauliflower Bacon Salad with a Buttery Hot Apple-Cider Vinaigrette

warm-cauliflower-bacon-salad-main-4png

There are recipes with cauliflower but not like this Warm Cauliflower Bacon Salad topped with a luscious buttery hot apple cider vinaigrette. This cauliflower salad IS the best cauliflower salad recipe for the upcoming seasons and we’re sharing the recipe with you today. This warm cauliflower salad is so good that my wife ate the entire dish before touching her meal. She said it was just so hard to stop eating it because the cauliflower and bacon pair up so nice together. It’s true.   Finally cauliflower is reasonably priced.   Cauliflower has dropped in price from $8.00 a head to $0.88 on sale at grocery stores and farmers markets across Canada. The winter will bring a spike in price for cauliflower and other imported vegetables because of the Ontario climate but don’t be afraid to add it to your grocery list. Cauliflower is very nutritious. This cauliflower bacon salad is perfect for Autumn and Winter or even serve it at Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner as a side-dish. My wife enjoys a low-carb lifestyle which means our son and I also enjoy the odd recipes with her because they are that delicious. I’m not a huge fan of raw cauliflower […]

7 Reasons People Think You’re Flat Broke When You’re Not : The Saturday Weekend Review #190

reasons-people-think-your-broke-when-youre-not

DON’T GO FLAT BROKE TRYING TO LOOK RICH WHEN YOU’RE NOT.   You’re not looking for sympathy or hand-outs when people think you’re flat broke when you’re not. It’s their perception and not your influence that guides their belief and how they choose to act around you in regards to financial status. This isn’t a bad thing if you don’t want people to know about your oversized bank account and investment portfolio. One thing we don’t typically do is talk about our finances with family, friends, employer, co-workers or strangers. They don’t need to know how much money we earn, where we’re spending it and how much we’ve managed to accumulate in the bank. Have you ever heard of people who become rich because someone in the family passes away and leaves them part of a fortune in their Will which no one knew about? It happens because not everyone shares their success with the world and not everyone values money the same either. Then there are hopeful people who think they are going to become rich because Grandma Suzie was loaded only to find out she was skint and left them a family heirloom instead of money.   Money […]

How To Hire The Right Caterer For Your Next Event : The Grocery Game Challenge 2016 #2 Sept 12-18

how-to-hire-the-right-caterer-for-your-next-event

THERE’S LOTS TO THINK ABOUT WHEN HIRING A CATERER.   I’m a guy who loves to cook but for smaller crowds. If you asked me to cater an event there’s no way I’d keep up because I simply can’t handle the stress of knowing I might mess up. This is where hiring a caterer comes in handy. The catering business is a big business all over the world because food is love and when there is a special event the caterer is there to ease the stress of the day. Catering is a hard-core business with competition fighting for top spot to take charge of your event. Over the last month I’ve received 2 emails from fans asking me about budgets and catering events they were planning so I thought I would address how to hire the right caterer and some budgeting tips. There are two types of caterers In-house or On Premises Catering (Food is prepared in-house) Off-Premises Catering (Food is brought in) The only reason catering may not be an option for your event is because of a low-budget or availability. Catering comes with a price tag similar to getting restaurant service or fast-food. You get what you […]
