Winter Wonderland

Hello all. I hope you enjoyed your weekend.

As promised, I'll fill you in on the details of the Eat-Clean Diet Family and Kids photo shoot that took place this past weekend at my home. It was a great success. We shot all day and the kids were fabulous. From 14 months to 16 years, not one person cried... phew! I am so excited for you to see the images when the book debuts in the fall. My favourite part of the shoot was when all of the kids put on their flannel pj's and hopped on the couch for a couple of photographs. They were all so cute.

We had a lovely lunch catered for our crew of 24 by Gourmandissimo, our local catering company. It was so nice to find a chef who had no trouble catering (pardon the pun) to my Clean-Eating needs. The kids munched on whole-wheat penne, turkey wraps, crudites and yummy fruit. A variety of simple and healthy foods is always the best for little ones.

That night we absolutely collapsed in exhaustion. As we all snuggled into bed we had no idea what the next day would bring...

A wild snow storm!

We were literally snowed in. With freezing rain adding a nice slick coating to fresh snow the hills were ideal for great tobogganing. We bundled up the kiddies and spent a couple of hours outside enjoying the weather. Trudging up and down the hills with kids in tow is great exercise. It was a nice switch up from my typical workout. Give it a try if you have snow in your area. Some of you may not know this, but we're not always snow covered up here in Canada. In fact, in many Canadian cities during the winter holidays there is no snow. I think this year will be a different story, as we've been inundated with quite a few storms already.

To wrap things up, the weekend was excellent. Lots of yummy Clean-Eating meals shared with the people I love the most! That's the way it should be. Why not plan a delicious meal for your family, friends and/or loved-ones this evening. You'll feel satisfied through and through.
