I handed in my last assignment this morning and I am done my Culinary Nutrition Expert Program! I truly cannot grasp all the things I have learned, there is just so much ❤️ One of my new eating habits are the intake of berries everyday, whether it’s in a smoothie or just popping a few in my mouth for a snack, these berries are where its at! So many antioxidants to fight off disease, toxins and oh, did I mention aging? You got it, berries are gold. If you don’t eat them often, you should start✌️#wifeofagrocer #cneprogram #berries

Gluten free ginger chocolate chip cookies ❤️ Homework has never been so good. These are made with a combo of brown rice flour and buckwheat flour. I fell in love with buckwheat flour long ago, its rich in colour and rich in proteins and fiber. Did you know that buckwheat is actually a seed not a whole grain?! #wifeofagrocer #cneprogram #foodfacts
I found these beautiful valentines radishes in my husband’s store today. OMG how I love radishes and this is the first time I’ve found these ones on the shelf. Yeah @cookstown_greens Feels like a beautiful fresh start to the week 💗 💗 #wifeofagrocer
Mushroom turmeric soup. Did you know that mushrooms help to regulate the function of your immune system. Can’t think of anyone who doesn’t want to help their immune system at this time of year! #cneprogram #wifeofagrocer #homework
I made walnut milk today. Why? I have learned that walnuts are full of amazing nutrients, vitamins and good fats. In some circles walnuts are considered to be brain food and mood boosters because of it’s high levels of omega 3s. I recently read a study that a lack of omega 3s in kids can cause hyperactivity, irritability and tantrums. Hmm 🤔 #wifeofagrocer #foodfacts
Okay, chia seeds are growing on me. This is the chia seed chocolate pudding that I put in my girl's lunch today. It has apple sauce, cacao, chia seeds and honey 🍯 with some water. Although you could also mix it with a great herbal tea, good idea right? #cneprogram #wifeofagrocer #homework
