Turn Over a New Page!



The new year is always a time of new beginnings for me. A fresh start, a time to reflect and think about my goals for the coming year. But did you know that all these ‘new beginnings’ don’t have to only be things that might be tough to tackle (such as losing weight, following a budget, etc.)? Nope. In fact, some new beginnings for 2016 could easily involve something FUN! For example…you could tackle a new craft project, learn or master a new skill, or even pick one of your existing talents and work on perfecting that talent. There are all kinds of great ideas! That said, if you need some inspiration, you’ll want to check out DK Canada’s Turn Over a New Page Boutique. It has the perfect selection of books to get you inspirted to ‘turn over a new page’ this year and to start or learn something new! Reflexology? First Aid? Family Nutrition? There’s lots of ideas to choose from.

For myself, I love to find new foods to make for my family to enjoy. However, I’m picky….they need to be healthy. They need to be tasty. And they need to be easy to make and not too time consuming! Sound like a tough bill to fill? Well, Energy Bites from DK Canada was a great addition to our bookshelf. This little book is packed full of super snacks that will benefit everyone in your home! There’s page after page of bite-sized balls that are specifically created to have balanced nutritional ingredients in them. They are high-protein with low-GI carbs and healthy fats. Simply put, this means that each ‘energy bite’ is a slow-release nutrition bomb designed to keep your blood sugar steady and your energy levels high.

There are sweet recipes, savory recipes, no-bake and bake recipes. They’re easy to make, perfect for snacks for days when you are on the go, and they are incredibly healthy! One of our favorites included a super food of Moringa powder in it. It was a great balance of sweet ingredients such as dates and a little bit of savory flavor from the Moringa powder. The kids loved these balls of goodness and so did I. We also found that they did keep us full longer, and they were much more satisfying than most of the other snacks we tend to eat. Energy Bites is a great little book filled with fun and simple recipes to keep your family healthy and satisfied in 2016!

What about you? What would you like to learn to do this year? What goals have you set for yourself? DK Canada’s Turn Over a New Page Boutique might have a book to help you get started! Head over and take a peek.
